Smurf Accounts: griefing, escapism or cowards running from the right tier of challenge for their rank?

From shooters to card games Smurf Accounts exist. Do you do it? do you hate it? is it a bit of fun or a bitch move?

How do you feel about them?

I have smurfed from time to time and it's usually with a new/low-ranked friend in order not to thrust him into high skill lobbies before he's ready. Depending on the game I'll play dumb too knowing that I can make it up later if I really need to.

I don’t do smurfs because its a waste of time, and you could spot smurfs from a mile away just by looking at their mannerisms once, i mean goddamn they don’t even try to hide it.
Either way here just went ahead and gave a first-hand proof. They’re a bunch of faggots with inferiority complex and are probably unable to break the skill ceiling. Because Matchmaking already gave you enough lemmings to slaughter, going smurf instead re-affrims that you’re insecure about punching above your weight
tl;dr Smurfs are the manlets of gaming

Matchmaking is a poor substitute for the old clan battles and competitive scrimmages of the past. Back then you'd need to have an organic reputation built up to participate in higher-level games. Now you just pubstomp until you can no longer do so. Smurfing is just a symptom of the larger disease of trustless ladder systems, purveyor of many other fine products such as tryhardism, ladder anxiety, cancerous player behavior, no community servers, no custom games or modding, cosmetic paypigs, lootcrates, and devs forcing their game into e-sports.

If you want to play with your friend, play with your friend. That you feel like playing is a waste if you don't play ranked is a sign that you have been consumed by the cancer.

How else will you see how the game is played by competent players? In games with protected matchmaking, there's always massive disconnect between low and high level players. I've been on both sides, and I don't care when I come up against a smurf.
The one universal rule for pvp games - the only people who complain about smurfs are actual shitters at the game itself.

As long as they aren't actually ruining the game environment I don't give a fuck about them, but if they are its pretty gay (as in the volume of them is so much that new players can't get a game without being fucked to the point of giving up on the game). They can kill a multiplayer game pretty easily if allowed.

Robert Ward

Smurfing is amazingly fun in a bad game. Think of a game that sucks, and then imagine playing online against people that fucking blow. It feels amazing.

I don't usually smurf, it's not fun normally, but if you're playing a game where you can really piss someone off because the game is a piece of shit (like League of Legends), it's a lot of fun. Specially when you start provoking them.

Shitty games are fun to smurf because they are inherently broken, and smurfing makes the broken parts of the games painfully apparent.

It's gay and a waste of time 90% of the time, though.

There is one asymmetrical game I am not going to mention the name of, but I only play it at low ranks, and I intentionally de-rank whenever my rank gets too high.
The reason for this is that the game is absurdly imbalanced in favour of of Side A.
The only way to have fun in the game as Side B is to either:
A) Play only against Side A players who dont know how to exploit the godawful balance problems yet.
B) Be a complete masochist.

Ryder Moore

I don't smurf because stomping a team of retards isn't fun. You may get the initial rush as you kill one after another, but soon it'll get replaced by apathy as you realise they're literally worse than AI bots and that there's no challenge to speak of. In games I feel particularly good at, I always go and join the losing team so that I get to play against someone decent – we usually lose the round due to the majority of team being shitters, but at least I had fun trying to turn the tide.

Or they can just tell you what to do and you can Fucking listen , I play Squad and there are people who didn't even read the control scheme and they cry all die on chat , asking about what each key does

I don't support smurfing , I want enemies that either are better enough than me that I can learn , or enemies that make 51v49 games and we keep outsmarting each other which leads to everybody getting better

I had a situation like this in beta of Argo ,There was one guy who always did wide flanks and sniping, and I did sneaking , we played some games together first , And than I was playing against him and we both had to switch tactics because we knew each other too good

Cameron Torres

This turned into a rant about the absolute state of fps players
the only people who complain about smurfs are actual shitters at the game itself.

I wonder if at some point they will start banning it harder
All it takes is one sales faggot to say
"People are leaving because they entry level is to high"
So it all depends on your patience , maybe play with bots or run around in the test range
I guess not everybody want their game to be Dark Souls because you get in a match with max lvl enemies that should play against other max lvl enemies and not you
But it all depends on what you want from the game
I would like to see a ranking system in the game I play so I don't have to deal with fucking noobs that can't think , they are not just bad at the game , They actively don't want to get better and came to a "milisim" so they can run around with M249 and pretend they are cool but will never fucking lay cover fire for you

For now it became popular to call in game squads something like "500+ hours or fuck off" with different effect
I am at the level of disdain and salt that I want hour counters(which can be cheated because sitting in the menu counts) and how much the person paid for the game be displayed next to their nickname
Of course devs want money ,and the game is 50% like every fucking month , which pushed veterans out , and changed skilled players country from 90% to 1%
There is also Clanboys problem , because they play together and leave together so you can loose half the server population and once
And they often instead of showing the best discipline and skill that Clans should represent are just fucking around being glorified randoms with a clan tag ,Choice between noobs and noobs with a clan tag is no choice at all

And then there are the Vehicle Squads ,which means 2 faggots in a locked squad, taking an APC type vehicle that should be Armored Personnel Carrier and just ride around the map getting frags not transporting anybody
One of the reason I quit BF4 was 100/0 99/0 immortal tanks and npc's and now Squad has the same symptoms
I just hate the type of people that go into a "milisim" just to fuck around and ruin it
Why can't they just fuck off and play Gaynite ?

Sounds like someone doesnt know how to play Casual, or at the very least get good at the game. Theres difference between being good by a small amount, and then theres a point where the smurf 1v10's an entire team essentially.

The high player count fucks with the design. You can't perform the strats that you usually do with 10 players because you can't rotate or deceive the opposite team. Not to mention that it doesn't have team kill so people get through your shots.

I actually found that playing ranked in Rocket League actually gives you a stable match-up. Though that's not too hard when casual is literally just randoms thrown together. It's the one game I don't mind playing ranked in. I think that's mostly because the game isn't all that complicated and matches are only 5 minutes long not counting over-time.

I don't understand why matchmaking is so difficult to get "right".

Brandon Johnson

This. If someone is good they should win often, if someone is bad they should lose often. Matchmaking attempts to "fix" this by tainting the matches with selections designed to make good players lose more often and bad players win more often until everybody is at a perfect 50/50 win/loss.

It is inherently communistic. They want everybody to be equal, and I believe that is morally wrong.

Top players have positive win rates, around 75-80% for the top 1%. If you are 50-50 you are just mediocre, like the rest of the mass of mediocres at the game. Furthermore, really terrible people, bottom of the barrel, your bronze league shitters, have ~30% winrates so at least there is that. This is completely natural if your game has a huge player pool and the matchmaking algorithm is working into matching players of the same skill level. You can only have high win rates if you are a very, very good player and it is at the top 5% of the player pool. You can do this by only playing with your shit friends exclusively or getting really good at the game if it has regional/global matchmaking. Easy path or hard path.

let me guess, you think 90% of players are mediocre and have average-level skill or lower?

because 90% of the player population somehow fits into the 50% of the player population with average-level skill or lower, right?

You really should learn what a probability distribution is.

In any given population there is a difference in ability. In games this can come from a combination of strategy, skill, game knowledge and adaptation. Some people, the lower percentile, are absolutely horrific at the game. Some are rather bad but at least have the basics, some are decent at execution but lack a few key things.

Ultimately, there is no reason for someone to interact with someone vastly outside of their skill and execution level. Those who are bad will not be able to learn anything from being trounced. Those who are at a high level will gain nothing in destroying someone who had no chance.

This is why things like weight class exist and why professional sports are played only after several tiers of lower leagues separate the best players from the general population. Yes, it is possible that someone can fight outside their weight class, or a particularly talented High School Football team be able to pull out a victory against a struggling College team, but these are rather rare circumstances.

If a matchmaking algorithm ever gets you into a bracket where you win as much as you lose then you are in the right bracket. You will not get more wins unless you improve at some aspect of the game. If you want a 100% or near 100% win rate, simply play against bots. There's nothing wrong with Botsturbation to get a small endorphin rush in a game you enjoy.

You really should learn what a probability distribution is.

tell me how probability distributions explain how 90% of the player population somehow fits into the 50% of the player population with average-level skill or lower

by definition 50% of any population is at or below average (for that population) and 50% of any population is at or above average (for that population). if you think that 90% of players are mediocre with average skills or lower (50% of the player population), you misunderstand basic fractions/percentages.

90% ≠ 50%

if you misunderstand basic fractions/percentages, the idea that you comprehend statistics is laughable.
