Okay I don't hate people who smurf and I don't blame them so let's get that out of the way. The reason I don't blame them is because Riot allows smurfs for some reason. Many streamers and youtubers often do "road to Diamond/Master/GM/Challenger" video series. Smurfs are however a major problem in Ranked SoloQ. They often decide games, taking the balance out of ranked matches. Getting rid of smurfs would take a chunk of the coinflip nature out of the game already. It's basically actually boosted players but then reversed. Would like to hear Riot's thoughts on smurfs because in my opinion they only hurt the game and with how many there are they are now a big problem of the game.
