What is your take on diamond 1/challenger smurfs carrying their friends/people they don't know for money? I see it almost in 90% of my games in this elo and I really hate dealing with it. The smurf count basically determines the win the vast majority of the time

As a high elo player you must know people who boost their friends and you must have been asked before (even i've been asked to boost my friends, to which I replied "no."). It would be nice to have at least one person agree with me that smurfing should be punishable in some way, or at least be stemmed/put to an end entirely.


For money is not only totally uncool, but also falls under the category of ELO Boosting, and proper reporting and investigation will result in bans. Feel free to report/open support tickets with proof if so, as we take all allegations seriously.

We have so much in common <3

Coo :P
having a friend get you out of a losing streak, by winning a game or two would be one thing,
but having a friend carry you divisions is a whole other monster.
If money is involved, accounts should be banned.

I'm not great at this game, I'm a bit jealous of players who have gold/plat/diamon icons and borders, I wish it was as easy as just paying someone to take me there, but there is no honor in that, and its just plain wrong. Players should be banned for it. First time 2week ban, if its attempted again, permaban.

edit: also anyone caught, of being boosted, should have their ELO reversed, you could also potentially ban them from ranked games only. For the rest of season 3.

I can never tell what's going on in your posts with all the crazy formatting and speaking in the third person you do.

Morgageddon I enjoyed the book Webmage and its sequels.
I would ask if you have read the Dresden files by Jim Butcher?
The Dresden Files are a series about a Private investigator wizard in modern times. < Heavy suggestion that you read very good series

You said your not a huge fan of Sci Fi that is like way out there in the future, but you did read Enders Game series would you read the RCN series its a book about a Navy captain of a intersteller battleship and the stuff he goes through gaining that rank and beyond. the author is David Drake.
I would suggest David Webber for more sci fi books, and The lost fleet series by John G. Hemry both are good authors. Webber is a veteren of the Sci Fi world so you might be able to pick up a few tricks of the trade from his books.

also do you play with normal players who aren't in diamond or on 1000th win and would you play with me. I know I need some help with my game.

Final question is Guinsoo still around or did he retire or something I never see him on here anymore.

I see quite a few players simply making smurfs to get to multiple Challenger Spots for fame, also because they can play whatever they want and still win. MMR helps to weed the super weak or super strong players from playing within their division. Duo Qing with a top tier player for elo gain is highly frowned upon. Smurfs themselves are harmless until it gets abused or if it ruins the experience of weaker players (which happens 99% of the time).

Elo boosting is a bannable offense, report any suspicious ppl you know because they are warping the League System to where getting or not having that smurfing Plat/Diamond player means victory or defeat. It's our duty as a constructive community to make LoL a healthy place for all. At the very least express your displeasure with their smurfing, potentially losing a friend over it is a serious business but we must remain vigiliant the best we can

It starts with you

Riot Morgageddon I have some serious lore stuff to talk with you about (private project!) I heard you're really interested in lore so I want to talk with you. If you receive my friend request in-game please accept and I'll share it with you!

Can you do me a favor.

Whenever you have a chance to talk to the graphical team make sure to let them know they should get a new elise skin ASAP :P

How do you feel about Forgotten Realms/Dragonlance? They were my first real incursions into high fantasy (don't count LOTR because it's basically required reading).

How do you feel about English literature classics? I feel like modern fantasy/sci fi is just as useful for understanding the language and all its uses and the classics are just lackluster in comparison.

If you could have 1 exotic animal as a pet what would it be (ex: otter)

Will you teach us all how to dougie?

I hear you're publically more attractive than Phreak? Proved by facts and such.

I have read all the Ender's Game books, but haven't read the Dresden Files. I've shelved them a lot though! I worked in a library back in the day.

I also haven't played normal games that much, but am trying to again.

Guinsoo still works here far as I know, just doesn't post much anymore.

Do you even Rift?

Nope.

Forgotten Realms/Dragonlance were fun. English literature classics have some very good sci-fi based stories in my opinion, such as 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, or The Invisible Man, or The Time Machine, all very good, all very old stories. My personal favorite is Asimov though, he has some very good ideas, morals and themes in all of his works.

Dragon, duh.

Nope, sorry, Morgageddon doesn't dance.

Depends if you are of a feminine nature or masculine. I'm on some of the LCS streams, so if you're going to go really Sherlock Holmes on me, you can see me.

Hey Morgageddon, it's been a while since I last poked my head in here but I just wanted to ask if you could help me out with the subject of my last support ticket? About the game being too zoomed in ever since you guys updated Summoner's Rift? ._. I can't really play properly in a PvP setting until this gets fixed... and the support guys just filtered me out with the most asinine copy-pasted questions/responses for the first 5-7 days of the ticket, so I figured I would ask you since you (hopefully) won't use preset responses :c
