Dota 2 continues to have issues with matchmaking due to a lot of smurfs and hackers. Today, Valve has banned more than 40,000 accounts alone this week. These players were banned for abusing matchmaking, which means smurfing.
What is Smurfing?
Well, pro and experienced players make new accounts and start from beginning to match against beginners. The players they get matched up against are of low ranks, thus the whole gets faulty because of one player who has played the game for a long time knows what he is doing. Beginners also find one player impressive, because of his skills in such a beginners match. Hence, they report him for smurfing.
Previously, Valve has implemented a lot of ideas in CS:GO and Dota 2, that could prevent players from smurfing. In a blog post, Valve said that they are “making our smurf detection system more sensitive in this update,” Valve says. “This change will much more proactively target potential smurf accounts, but may on rare occasion give a normal player extra MMR.”
Valve does not take any Dota 2 ban cases Lightly. In September 2019, they banned players till 2038 for racism, abuse, cheating, and smurfing. Many players appreciated these harsh decisions, but those banned unfairly were not happy.
