7 Benefits of Buying League of Legends Smurf Accounts
A League of Legends “smurf” account is a low-level account typically owned by a player who already owns a separate, high-level account (his or her main account, in other words). Smurf accounts are cheap and can be easily bought from sites that specifically sell them. Like us, for example.
According to legends (no pun intended), the term originated in the ‘90s when two highly skilled and well-known Warcraft II players decided to play under different usernames because of the many players – fearing an assured beat-down – who simply refused to play against them. Their alternate usernames? “PapaSmurf” and “Smurfette,” hence the term.
The term has remained popular ever since. But other than playing matches using a different name, what are the benefits to buying an unranked League account? Here are 7 benefits of buying a smurf account in League, which should help you in deciding whether to create or buy one.
This is one of the most obvious reasons why players use smurf accounts. Practicing a new Champion while playing with and against high-level players in a ranked match is not recommended. You won’t be able to effectively practice because your high-level teammates won’t be keen on having you “play around” while all of them are giving their best to win the match. Your record and reputation will also take a hit.
And since you’re not used to playing your new Champion, enemies can take advantage and mercilessly slaughter you while you’re still at a loss on how to effectively use your Champion’s abilities. Unless, of course, you can quickly adapt to your new Champion and avoid being too much of a feeder. Sure you can use the recently commissioned Practice Tool by Riot Games to practice a new Champion. But it doesn’t really offer the real deal when it comes to simulating a real match. Playing against real players is still the most effective way to practice. It’s a trial by fire, so to speak.
Been an ADC your entire League career and want to shake things up? Playing just one of the five roles in the current metagame has its benefits. But what if you’re simply tired of playing support and want to play solo for once by playing top or mid? Like with practicing new Champions, using a smurf account to practice playing a different role is better than doing it in ranked matches.
Experienced high-level teammates likely won’t be willing to assign you to a role which you have zero experience in. Due to your inexperience, they will be basically playing handicapped, even if you’re very good with the basic game mechanics. Learning how to play a new Champion is entirely different from just learning how to efficiently get the last-hit.
This is one of the more frowned upon reasons why high-level players buy smurf accounts. If you ever need to boost your self-confidence or ego, you can do so by beating the living hell out of unsuspecting low-level players who are still learning how to play the game.
Yes, it’s harsh. But there can be days where you’re simply having a bad day, and the only way to make you forget about it is to dominate other players. Of course, that doesn’t justify your stomping of poor low-level players who didn’t know what hit them. If want to feel good about yourself by dominating less-skilled players then, by all means, buy a smurf account now.
Like beating up on low-level players, buying a smurf account just so you can troll other players without fear of retribution or without putting your reputation on the line is generally unacceptable within the community. Why? Because you’re intentionally ruining the experience of other players. But what if you really want to have fun by using stupid or funny equipment builds or using a specific Champion in a different way than most are accustomed to? A smurf League account gives you the chance to do just that.
Remember how many matches it took you to get to your current high-level rank? You probably don’t remember how many you hours you put into it. If you want to see or simply want to appreciate how much time and effort you put into your main account, you can use a smurf account to start from scratch. You can use the new account to go up the ranks again until you reach your main account’s level.
The challenge is to reach that level at a faster rate with fewer matches. With your current skill level, it’s definitely possible. Besides, having more than one high-level account is always good for bragging rights to your friends.
Tired of waiting for more than 30 minutes in high ELO? What if you simply want to play just a match or two during your busy day? Using a smurf account will allow you to play in low-level matches without having to wait 30-40 minutes or sometimes even an hour in the queue.
Perhaps the most often cited reason why high-level players use smurf accounts is because they want to be able to play with their low-level real-life friends who are still learning how to play the game. It also keeps their main account intact and free of blemishes. Because, really, playing with newbies has a higher chance of generating losses.
Getting your real-life friends to play with you in ranked matches against players who can obviously massacre them with ease is out of the question. They won’t be able to enjoy the game and learn further when their chances of getting killed are more than 90 percent. It’s bad for their self-confidence, too.
As you can see, there’s more than one reason to use a smurf account in League. It’s up to you to decide whether investing your time on a smurf account would be a good idea. But we definitely recommend using one if you’re bringing over some of your real-life friends to League. It would make things easier if you can give them lessons while you’re playing with them, instead of simply playing the role of spectator. And while you’re showing them the ropes, you can also practice different Champions. It’s a win-win situation, really.
