Top Reasons For Having a League of Legends Smurf Account

Lots of players on League of Legends have smurf accounts nowadays but what exactly do they use their smurf accounts for? Some players like to have them as a backup account while others want to play them just as regularly as their main account. So what exactly are the reasons for having a League of Legends smurf account?

Practising a new champion

When practising a new champion it can be a bit daunting especially if you don’t know what any of the skills do. The worst thing you could do would be to join a ranked game with a champion you’ve never played before, more than likely it will end disastrously.

The only way to practise 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 practise properly you need to play ranked games head to head with players around your skill. If you don’t want to risk being depromoted on your main account then the best thing is to play on a smurf instead.

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.

Wanting to troll

Lets 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 to trash talk and insult people during 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.

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 and break into Silver league. Some players find it easier and quicker to start again with their promotion matches.

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.

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.

Now you know what people use their smurf accounts for why not save the time and effort of leveling one yourself and buy one from our store. We offer a range of League of Legends Smurf accounts on a variety of regions. Click the link below to access our store now.
