Smurfing is a significant problem for many game creators. It has to do with the fact that frequently skilled players go for low-ranked accounts. As a result, they are able to enter contests against opponents that they can easily outperform and defeat.

Along with other games like Apex Legends, Valorant has experienced its fair share of smurf issues.

Riot Games provided a thorough update on the subject on December 20 that included their current plans for handling it.

Riot’s blog article went into great length about the issues, how they’re solving them, and what is coming up next.

They revealed that Valorant now has a mechanism in place to track smurf account MMRs called “Automated Smurf Detection” (matchmaking ranks).

Smurf counts are down 17% overall from the same time last year. This demonstrates that Riot’s strategies are effective, but there is still a long way to go before Valorant is completely free of smurfs.

Additionally, they claimed that, on average, freshly generated smurfs are now entering their “proper” MMR lobbies 2-3 times quicker than before. This indicates that they are entering fewer lobbies with opponents they are unable to outplay.

Riot also declared that modifications to 5-stacking, which refers to players joining matches as a full team of five, had produced the expected outcomes. They added: “Changes to 5-stack restrictions have also significantly decreased smurf activity, which coincidentally increased match fairness in the same time frame. The most impartial matches in all of VALORANT are still made using the 5-stack matchmaking system.

In terms of what gamers might anticipate going forward, Riot promised to keep an eye on the problems and provide new features as necessary.

More “improvements/additions to our smurf detection system; continuous attempts to identify and act against boosting, account sharing, and account purchasing; and additional methods for players of different skill levels to play VALORANT competitively together” were among the plans they laid forth.

Although Valorant will never be completely smurf-free, it is obvious that Riot has made this a top priority, and the game has already benefited from their attention.
