first time abandon banned until 2024
i accidentally shut down my computer last night. Havent abandoned before so I played another game. I won 4/5 games and the only game I lost was the one I abandoned (which we were winning easily at the time). Anyways I checked my reports and I dont have many at all. My conduct score is green. Does anyone know why I would have gotten banned for 5 years for abandoning one game?

you don't need conduct score to get banned for using outside game applications.

if you are smurfing you get banned (I just get banned). So you need to make a new account again xD

Balmain Paris Jan 11, 2019 @ 12:53pm

Stutter3 Jan 11, 2019 @ 12:54pm

there you get your answer. I also just get banned without even leaving a game once. I was smurfing too.

looks like smurfing is banned maybe? I honestly don't mind that because thats why I made a new account to start with lol
You were banned

Next time, don’t smurf.

I also got one 5 year ban and one 8 year ban on my 2 smurfs. Any way to fix this as I wasn't abusing the matchmaking system?

Shoo troll. Stop feeding people misinformation just because you're salty. There are no bans for smurfing. There are bans for boosting/botting/cheating/matchmaking abuse which you got caught for. Boo hoo.

You got banned for the same reason that other kid got banned. Boosting/botting/cheating/matchmaking abuse. The max ban you can get for in-game behavior such as abandoning games (repeatedly over a long period of time) is a 6 month matchmaking ban. You got the other kind of ban. The bad kind for being very naughty.

They are banning smurfs

Edit: After rereading the tweet, it says "Today we reset". But the timing is so that I think they must be placing bans aswell.

You need to go ahead and re-read that again. They said they are banning people who are "abusing matchmaking to get into ranked." They did not say they are just banning smurf accounts. They are banning accounts that are engaged in matchmaking abuse and exploitation. Kind of an important distinction, wouldn't ya say friend?
