if you join/creat a custom lobby titled according to lvl "1-10 only", " lvls 1-15", etc you'll have control of who gets to play. You may still run into smurfs, but in my experience it's far less often.

On a related note think about other multiplayer games. It can be frustrating early on, because when you first start playing you run into players with higher skill. It's a matter of accepting defeat and learning from it.
I do that with my ARAM for Newbies game, but still high levels/smurfs continue to join the game.

ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhh u guys are being way too rough on the noobies. This game is meant to be fun. My wife and I played together and I tried really hard to not to be THAT smurf. To all the new players, it sucks, it really really sucks, Unfortunately there's no real way to stop smurfing, so just please hold on tight until level 11 where smurfs stop playing those accounts.

And to the people telling the new players to watch and learn, are u freaking kidding me? You're asking them to figure out why they're losing when they just started the game? They barely know the mechanics, let alone the champs they're facing. Seriously damn, how pro were you when you started? I was good because I came from HoN and DOTA, but a lot of people, including my wife, may have never seen a MOBA game.... give em slack and understand their feelings.

Yes, I'm always going to ask them to learn. And if they have questions, then I'll answer them.

Because there are already systems in place to deal with smurfs and his claim that "nothing is being done about this at all" is not true. What he is asking for is already in the game.

Nor will his claim that "lifeless sad community full of trolls and smurfs" or "worst in game support" really garner any sympathy from me.

I'm willing to help. And the best way to enjoy the game is to realize that the game is about learning how to play the game so you can win. Not just winning.

If your approach is sympathy, then good for you. It isn't mine.

And people wonder why I have no sympathy for people who complain and make excuses.

Regardless, your complaints are meaningless since Riot already had stuff to deal with smurfs and you do need to learn more about the game.

You can keep complaining if you want but it won't make a difference.

Ah, yes, I am an arrogant troll now for saying that your original complaints are pointless because LoL already has things that mitigate smurfs as oppose to your claim of "nothing is being done about this at all". And that you do need to fix your own game first.

Oh woe is me. How will I ever handle your accusations.

Oh wait, it doesn't matter.

I think a lot of it is attitude as well. Thinking you're King Banana is all well and good, but when you're actually applying it, it's not working.

Lux is a high damage zoning champ. Cooldown and damage should be your priority first, health second. In your most recent games, you never actually build anything, you just cobble together items. In your 55-minute game, you built Lich Bane without any real AP behind it. None of your games involve a Deathcap. You claim to rush Rylai's, but I don't see it. I see a 2/3 built Void Staff and Archangel's, but that's about it. You have 0 Magic Pen. Your minion count is abysmal.

No, I don't believe you've learned. You're level 8. You have plenty of time to learn. Unless you have a large amount of cooldown (Ionian boots isn't enough) you shouldn't be using your ult for creep waves.
