- Two week suspensions for the accounts of a few streamers that we’ve confirmed were engaging in this behavior: robertxlee, Only Jaximus, yangfushang, and dye44.

But in all seriousness, it's good to know Riot is actively addressing this issue, so thanks.

Smurfs are okay as players that are genuinely smurfing act no different than a new player to ranked could if they had the skill. They will quickly climb up close to their true Elo rating and it won't be a problem.


Thats not the problem the problem is new players to the gaem offten uninstall after a few days of play because high elo players will make smurfs then go play these level 1, 2, 3 smurfs and scream and yell and curse out new players to the point where they uninstall the game for good.

Thats what I ment by my other statement.

I agree people will eventually reach thier true ELO over many games that wasnt my point.

Why are the accounts of the people who did the actually boosting also made ineligible for season 2 rewards? That makes no sense

(To Clarify: The people who did the boosting should also be ineligible)

The accounts that were being boosted should have an ELO penalty in the beginning of Season 3 as well.
