That's the only thing preventing me from going pro!" or something equivalently fallacious. That, or they simply can't/won't/don't want to compete at a skill level that is appropriate for them. They don't want difficult matches with players similar to themselves, they want to beat up on new players for easy wins so that they can feel good about themselves. It's like if an NBA player went to play in some middle-school games. Then there are the people who level up a bunch of smurfs to cheat the referral system.

    No matter the reason, smurfs and people who smurf are fucking scumbags. I wish that there were a reasonable solution to the problem, but of the MOBAs I've played, none seem to have found one.

    There needs to be something, a quiz, anything. Make the person learn a little more in-depth of penetration and protections, and the actives they have at their disposal. The tutorial now that you have to do before entering a real game is so redundantly useless.
    I learned 70% of what I know by myself, back in march.

    I wouldn't if I was you. Hel maybe, Chang'e, you have to be good as she can die quite fast, Aphro, no.

    You are asking what god will give you a free win so you can get your rewards, right? The answer is none, this is Joust, you can go against a Bronze V one game and a Platinum 1 the next. If you win enough in a row you can skip ranks, but that will only make it worse for you, you need to have a slow gradual climb if you haven't really played 1v1 otherwise it will hurt more coming down.

    There are those Joust players like myself who are merciless and WILL make you pay for any mistake, there are those who are passive and just want some farm before killing so they can take the towers with ease, there are those who are dodgy and will win without you even knowing what just happened, and than there are those who are bad and will inflate your rank for nothing.

    If you come across those easy wins, you will come to the other players faster and therefore lose and feel like you have gained nothing. Try a god you enjoy, someone with a good lane clear and decent 1v1 damage, get some lifesteal and get good. Don't just take a healer because you can survive longer, I will just counter build your heals and smash you up.

    Knowing is not enough, we must apply.
    Willing is not enough, we must do.
    Even if you do not kill the enemy, forcing them to retreat is still a win, this still gives you time to gain Exp, gold and damage the objectives.

    Here is what 300+ Ping looks like: Tyr 3v3
    Here is what no ping looks like: Tyr 1v1

    I smurf when I want to play with my friends who are newer to the game, so they aren't pitted against level 30s who will just demolish them. I also do it when I want to try a new god so I don't drag down a team on my main account while trying to get the hang of one. Other than that I stick with my main account since I'd rather earn favor on it to buy gods, rather than get it on an alt account.

    Do you think that is fun for new players to play against? Smurfing- and premadinggames are imbalanced.

    I smurf for Tyr. 1 is level 8 the other 2 are level 5 ... cause it's boring (either steam rolling actually newbies or get stomped by premade smurfs on the other team). The only upside is helping new players ;/

    Their complaints aren't hurting the game or the community. However, a lot of the trolling you guys do around here more than hurts Smite's development, community, rep and chances of further success.
