Top Reasons For Having a League of Legends Smurf Account
It’s no secret that lots of players on League of Legends have smurf accounts nowadays. But what exactly do they use their smurf accounts for?
Is it because they like collecting LoL accounts and showing off to their friends? Or is there a practical reason why someone would need various accounts?
With so many questions out there, we thought it was about time somebody gave you some answers. We’re here to break all the myths and decode why someone would ever want to have more than one LoL account. So what exactly are the reasons for having a League of Legends smurf account?
Ideal For Practicing
When practicing a new champion it can be a bit daunting at first, especially if you don’t know what any of the skills do. The worst thing you can do would be to join a ranked game with a champion you’ve never played before. More than likely it will end disastrously and you’ll be wishing you never tried them in the first place.
The only way to practice a new champion is to play against real, skilled players, and learn the ins and outs of the champion. Playing against bots or unranked players simply won’t cut it. It might be more fun and enjoyable but when most of the players are unranked and have no skill, it’s not really a challenge.
To practice properly, you need to play ranked games head to head with players around your skill level. If you don’t want to risk being depromoted on your main account, then the best thing is to play on a smurf instead. With a smurf account, you can practice as much as you like, no matter how bad you are. If you do end up losing MMR or a rank then it doesn’t matter, it’s just your practice account.
Perfect For Trying Out A New Role
Similar to practising a new champion, sometimes players want to try a new role in game and use their League of Legends smurf to do so. By using a smurf account instead of their main account they can afford to lose games and make riskier plays. By doing this it helps them learn their new role faster as they are not afraid to try new tactics and strategies out.
If everything goes wrong and they lose every game then they might decide that role is not for them. The good thing is all their losses will be recorded on their League of Legends smurf account and not on their main. Allowing them to continue playing whatever role they play best without losing any ranks. Compared to using a normal LoL account this is a much faster and stress-free way to learn a new role.
Wanting To Troll Players
Let’s face it, some players enjoy giving other players a hard time in game. This might come in the form of constantly picking the worst champ in the game or purposely playing the wrong champ in lane. Some prefer also prefer to trash talk and insult people during the game to wind them up and get a reaction.
Although we don’t condone using your League of Legends smurf account in this way we can’t deny the fact that it does happen. Players would rather risk their smurf account being banned compared to their main account. Think of it as a throwaway account where they aren’t too concerned with what happens to it. By having nothing to lose, players can unleash hell on Rift and make funny YouTube videos without losing their main LoL account.
They Enjoy A Challenge
Sometimes players get greedy and enjoy a challenge. Why have 1 account in Diamond league when you can have 2 and boast to your friends? By having multiple accounts in a high tier league it shows you definitely have skill and didn’t just get there from being carried.
Having multiple accounts in a high tier league is fairly common amongst pro players. WildTurtle and xPeke are both known for having multiple smurf accounts in the top challenger tier. Not only is this a great achievement but it’s great for showing off their skill and talent.
Want A Better Rank
If you’ve ever been placed in Bronze 5 then you should know how hard it can be to breakout from that elo hell. Rather than spending months trying to grind out matches just to break into Silver league, some players find it quicker to start again.
To do this you need a new League of Legends smurf account that is level 30 otherwise you won’t be able to play ranked. Most people find it easier to actually buy a smurf account instead of going through all the effort of leveling one from scratch again. This basically gives you a second chance at your placement matches and therefore another chance of escaping elo hell!
Play On A Different Region
Although you can transfer your account to a different region using the in-store option, it can be expensive if you keep switching back and forth. Instead of transferring your main account you can buy a brand new smurf account for the same amount.
This way you can have your main account on one region say EUW and your smurf account on NA. Now you get the benefit of playing on both regions without having to constantly pay to switch your account. This strategy is actually very popular with many online streamers and professionals. If they want to compete in multiple server regions regularly then they will just buy another account to do so. Not only does this save them the money of having to constantly transfer their account, but it also means they don’t have to spend weeks leveling. Since all smurf accounts come at level 30, this saves people a lot of time leveling.
