My account was MG2 and due to inactivity its now silver 3. I am outperforming everyone on my rank, and I am climbinh back to my original rank. I did not choose to be a (temporary) smurf. Valve their stupid system did.

Does it count as smurfing if you only played comp when you sucked and got silver 1 then got really good and went back to comp?

Valve is against boosting ,but they don't realize that smurfing ,and boosting go hand to hand. I have been in games against 5 premades three 3 gold novas ,and two globals on a gold nova account boosting their shitty gold nova friends ,and it's annoying as fuck. Valve should at least ban boosting smurfs ,and boosted accounts.

I get im 2 year late and all, but I want to add the fact that some "smurfs" aren't smurfs at all, their just STUCK IN SILVER BECAUSE APPARENTLY 81 GAMES WON+CARRIED IN A ROW ISN'T ENOUGH TO GET FROM SILVER 1 TO SILVER 4.
lanzak (2 months ago)
smurfs should be treated the same as cheaters. they should also be banned. if you have more than one account that are somehow linked, be it by email somehow, or phone number, one of them should be banned. smurfing is one of the great scum of the csgo community, and it should be cracked down on as hard as cheaters.

I must say that it's agreeable, I do Smurf myself because all of my friends that play the game are all silver and low nova. So it's very understandable that people play with their friends. But people get Smurf accounts to cheat and to do all sorts. Like just today was playing a game on cache with a profile that was a game on record, okay one is fair play. Looked again and again and it was a full 5 man smurfing. Again I can't really complain as sometimes I am part of the problem but I do feel like it is getting worse and worse.

The bottom line is, if you smurf, you are a 100 percent dickhead who should be burnt at the stake. Do everyone a favor and end yourself if you smurf.

Hello from the future! You no longer need to smurf as Globals are commonly placed among gold novas now. Don't blow your money on those accounts :)

Varun Kumar (3 months ago)
For those who say " smurfing helps you get better " , how about you let us get better on our own and you play at your own ranks where you might get wrekt a lot of times , that is one reason why they do smurfing as they can't do jack at their ranks. Shame on them.

I once played a premade game with a player who didn’t play for a while, so he had no rank, I am silver 1, he was quite nice and gave tips, we won 16:3 or something.
Loli Lover (4 months ago)
Every match I play has smurfs. I was at gold nova and let my cousin have my acc. He dropped all the way to s2 and I wanted to go back up. But in every game there are smurfers. I can kill one of them but there are usually more than one so I get outnumbered. All ny teamates are silvers and play like silvers.

Im in silver 2, i play with my friend who is lem on his main. His smurf is silver eilite.. We often have games where we get shit on. i just kinda accept that csgos ranking system is broken. i can beat some people who are supreme or ~mg, other times people in silver 1 completely destroy me. (and this would be in prime) Some games when the other team is silver elite, i get well over 100 kills, then there are times when the other team is around silver 3 and they are even to me.

one easy solution is to NOT EVEN INTRODUCE DERANKING!!! unless you are gone for like 6+ months and only go down 1 rank. Deranking in csgo should not be a thing at all. if if you say "yeah but at the higher ranks, there are cheaters." But if valve would get their head out of their money spewing ass then they would do something about it. i just got done with a comp game. im usually nova 1, but i deranked to Silver 1 due to inactivity, i got pinned against DMG and LEM smurfs. Fucking piece of shit game
Sean B (4 months ago)
If you think about it, all pro players were complete noobs at some point, and became good because of the high skill gap set by the smurfs before them. Smurfs were always around since the time of multiplayer games, and should be embraced with open arms, as they are helping the community practice spray patterns 2 hours a day in hopes of one day becoming smurfs themselves.

how about IP ranks. your rank is saved to your hardware and IP along with your account, to prevent people getting new computers, IPs, and accounts. Any time you play, you are that rank and you cant smurf. The deranking will be taken care of. Buying an account wouldnt work, throwing wouldnt work they could even put people attempting to smurf with people who are also trying to smurf, meaning they cant derank, there could be an option to select a player for smurf servers. If they get enough smurf server reports, they will get an overwatch, to see if they are indeed trying to derank, and they will be given account info such as hours, games, friends, and most importantly, ips which have logged into this account. This could eliminate smurfing. if you have any ways to suggest or if I made an error or if there is another way they can smurf then please tell me.

glad this wasnt a warowl type video where he says smurfing is good. Smurfing is destroying the game. I want to rank up to the higher ranks, but people cheating to do it too and smurfs its just, I cant. I get noobs, alot of them. aiming at feet and bad callouts, no mics, never shut up, griefers (more than you think).

It's really hard now that me and my friend got promoted into gold nova. We're pretty good at the game but every 5 or so rounds we encounter a team full of genuine smurfs that destroy our whole team. It's really annoying and you can see that they're smurfs by just hours played and account

i'm dmg, and 80% of the games i play are really challenging, hard and exhausting matches that takes alot from you as a player... for me, this is my peak rank and i need to improve to go higher... so smurfing in e.g nova 1 or silver is like a break... carrying with 30-2 feels good... but yeah it does make me an asshole aswell

Cyphi (7 months ago)
Sealclubbing is low. Always been.There are community servers if you want raise your ego, or non-competitive mod, so why should be smurfing allowed? Rank system works as some learning curve, it supose to reflect your skill level and give you oponents at close to your skill to learn more. But that doesnt work with smurfs. You may get lucky and be on smurfs side. That gives you easy win, easy rank up without really learning. Or you can be unlucky to play against smurf and even if you do have enough skill level, you cant rank up because its close to no-win chance scenario. Thats bad for everyone, but specially for smurf himself because if you play alot bellow your skill level, your own skill level drops. And not talking about lots of players in wrong skill group you helping generate, making whole rank system big toxic mess.

The problem with these princesses is that they impose themselves on other players. Perhaps people are happy at their ranks and don't want to get better or improve. Perhaps people can't improve on where they currently are. Thing is, smurfs actually have to create a new account and buy the game again and go through the whole cycle of things to get and maintain a low rank. If asking a team if they want to play against a smurf, I am pretty sure they would all say NO. So it's out of ego that the smurf plays so he can feel better about himself at EZ wins. If they really want to "teach" other players, why then do they not come in at their own rank. OH ya, MM won't allow that. Too much difference between ranks would not be fair. Even the system knows that, so with that knowledge, the smurf already knows what he is doing is truly and unfair advantage to the other players. I guess with the Millennial generation of instant gratification, this should not be surprising. Its hard for them to play like a real gentleman and play fairly. Hell this shit is done in High School! Adults who do this probably have not reached the maturity level yet of being responsible and understanding fairplay and good sportsmanship. That's what separates the boys from the men. So while the men have to deal with these boys and their issues, we can only hope one day they just Man the fuck up. Then real respect is given. It's not about me being salty, I don't really get salty as more like I look at this player and just facepalm. Its about me thinking, "Great another smurf. Another person pussifying the male gender with their princess behaviour." So sad.

I was an accidental smurf. I was GN1 (still below skill level), And got deranked to silver elite because i didnt play enough. My friend just got the game and he was a real silver pleb. Long story short, it's fun to rush mid with a p90 and get a 3 second ace.
gay freakin frog (8 months ago)
i remember when i just didn't play csgo for 5/6 months came back and i back silver 2 and i was unfairly good to the rest, vavle should make it so you don't loose your rank by not playing, just loosing

Why blame the game, for a eule they're avoiding. People nowadays just blame it on something else without thinking "but i'm doing the wrong" cause it's easier that way. I love your vids 99/101 times, but in this case you blame something the community is doing wrong, as something valve should fix.
Do it the same as trust factor. :game sees a NEW account is performing extremely well: put it only in games with people doing that well too.

Half Way Lambda (9 months ago)
And now we have the trust factor. I must say, it does its job very well, I have played about 12 matches by far and have seen no smurfs, no hackers, nothing. A fair game. Whereas in prime/non prime, there's a 0.01% chance to play 12 matches in a row without smurfs or cheaters. I'm so glad Valve did this, low skilled players can now play the game properly. Or at least, those who have a lot games on Steam, compared to a smurf with only 1 or 2.
Rj Bertram (9 months ago)
What rank are you? I'm pretty much brand new to CS, but I have plenty of FPS experience, so I can recognize a smurf when I see one. About half my games have a smurf so obvious that they single-handedly win the game- either for my team or the other team. For a player brand new to the game who's just trying to learn, playing against a high-level smurf is just as painful, boring and as much of a waste of time as playing against a blatant hacker. CS seemed cool to check out, but I'm probably just gonna stop playing if there's no alternative.

i have an alt, but i'm DMG and all my irl friends are s2-sem. it's unfair for both teams with the two options, play on main against mg's/nova or the other team faces a dmg made up of silvers. But i do not and i never have solo q'd on that account i've only played with a 5 man to have fun with my friends who are a lower rank. one round every few weeks not even a guaranteed win since half of the time i'm messing around and trying to do stupid plays but that's the fun in playing with friends.

In my irrelevant opinion, Smurfs are worse than cheaters. A Cheater is a guy who more often than not just wants to watch the world burn, spinbotting and feeding from his enemies rage, not honorable, but i can understand that, sometimes we are surrounded by so much shit we just want to see others get wrecked. A Smurf on the other hand, is way worse, because he does it not for fun, but to feed his ego, he likes the attention, he likes to feel good, to feel better than everyone else, and i absolutely hate people like this, it's like someone going down to the hood with his Ferrari and starting to tell everyone how much better than them he is. I can appreciate a man deriving pleasure from chaos, but a man that has to go to a level where he knows he has a massive advantage, just to feel good about himself, feed his ego and get some praise? No. To me it's basically the same as a school bully, a vain incomplete asshole whose only way of finding some happiness is by preying on those who are weaker than him. Grade A cowards.
Zeayo (8 months ago)
Smurfs are also worse in my opinion because of the reaction of enemy players. When you are facing a cheater, especially a cheater that is obvious, you kinda just say, "oh well, it's a cheater, fuck it" and you move on knowing that dumbass will get banned. When you are facing a smurf who is better than you in every way, they laugh at you, ridicule, and fuel their ego without consequences. A typical enemy reaction would be filled with rage and disappointment, and even self-loathing because the player may think they're not good enough and shouldn't even try to perform better. Smurfs ruin the game for everyone involved, while cheaters -- in the end -- ruin the game for themselves.

RaimaNd (9 months ago)
Smurfing means you play on ranks way under your skill-level, so if you are gnm and you would be silver 3 or something it would be smurfing. I'm global on my main account and LE/LEM on my old main account (aka actually second account or smurf if you wanna call it so). The only reason I've two active accounts is because on the one account I play only with other good friends and with the other account I play with friends no matter which rank they're. This is the only chance to play with bad friends and it still sucks because when I play with gn4 friends or something like that we will get DMG-LEMs so my friends get destroyed. The system really sucks whatever you do. :(
