Jeff said smurfs are okay b/c they will OUTRANK the low tiers quickly.
Well, we see smurfs in just about every game now and in every level.
We also see a ton of throw-games where they would just throw down to bronze to make sure they’re at a lower tier to carry their less-skilled counterparts.
These “throw-groups” also “disguise” their throwing by doing some work, only to intentionally lose the game at the end.
And finally, we see so many sold accounts that people buy just to get out of leveling 25 or, previously made accounts that are clearly different from their current play style. They boost others as well; doing very mediocre initially, then comes out with ridiculous trick-shots, crazy aim, on round 2 - almost like, “turning on the hacks”.
The game is pretty much self-destructive; you get nowhere and can’t climb unless you have a carry. Competitive is now just “which team has the better smurf”.
I wish the game devs can actually listen to the community and see just how broken the system is.
