I don't think smurfing has ever been a big problem even in rank-based matchmaking. Bar a few factors, their numbers are too insignificant to actually affect the ranking of the people they come up against, and they will be back to their original rank soon if the system works as intended. There can be a few cases where the amount of smurfs on lower levels might be a real problem, but they are always a fault of the system.

I have a lot of experience with CS:GO, where smurfing has often been a pretty big topic. There are five things which generally drive people to alt accounts:

1) The top levels of play are laden with cheaters. For a time it was abysmal in CS:GO, and the reason I made a smurf in the first place. You could easily queue with 5 spinbotters in a row and next have 3 wallhacker games. Playing at the top levels of matchmaking was a chore, since finding a legit game often took you way too long, and the possibility that the enemy would rage toggle at the final rounds was always there. Valve recently fixed this with well-timed VAC ban waves and the prime matchmaking system, which requires a certain amount of playtime and a working phone number to enter.

2) People can't play with their friends because their rankings are different. This is another big one. Very often people will have their friends get into the game they've been playing for a while themselves, and as a result have semi-high ranking, restricting them from playing with the friend(s) they introduced to the game. What's there left to do? Either derank on purpose, or buy a smurf account. Or you can play one of the shit casual modes and not enjoy yourself at all. In a way this is necessary to have balanced games, but maybe not. I think the matchmaker could just find an equal distribution of player ranks for both teams. In CS:GO's case, the situation would be greatly alleviated with unranked matchmaking, which would have all the rules of competitive games but no rank restriction or any effect on ranking.

3) The wait times are too long on the top ranks. Often I want to play some unpopular map in CS:GO, and instead of waiting for 14 minutes to find a game, I will just hop on my alt and find a game within three minutes. This could be alleviated with a myriad of ways, from a rotating map pool to more frequent skin drops on unpopular maps.

4) People want to just play casually and unwind a little, but doing this on the competitive mode might not be fun since not paying attention usually results in a quick death. Having well designed casual modes fixes the issue.

5) Some scrub just wants to stomp on some noobs. These cases are negligible, though often overreacted to. If the scrub is truly stomping on the noobs, he will quickly rank up to where he won't be able to do that anymore.

The mordhau dev team consists of entirely knights! By 2018 we must make accommodations to include at least 25% people of archery in the dev team, and by 2020 the dev team must consist of one quarter of each character class or face repercussions. Down with the aristocracy!

He tests the game on a shitty pc so itll run well for more users, if he was going to add this, it would be optimized properly or not added at all.

I'm responding to Tim who somehow thinks that the difficulty of the AI has anything to do with performance.

Sure it would. A simple and easy AI would only have to know how to attack in your direction and when to activate parry. A more challenging AI needs to run a much bigger variety of tasks that are also more complicated, assuming it doesn't outright cheat. It needs to keep a much more accurate track of your actions, and it needs to do more calculations as well.

How would a bot chamber, for example? I'm not a programmer, but I assume it would need to know the angle of your attack and the positioning of it, and then it needs to attack in the correct angle right before the attack is about to land, and calculating the timing would probably be fairly complicated due to dragging - it could not work on just pure proximity. Of course the bot also needs to know the distance between you two so it doesn't chamber thin air, and if we want it to be difficult, it should be able to decide when it's possible to back out of the range of the weapon, and when it would be better to counterattack.

Compare the calculations done here to just checking the bot's and the player's position, checking the status of the player, and orienting the bot roughly in the right direction before the attack.

Of course the difficulty (i.e. complexity) of bots has an effect on performance.

It seems to me that the age of information has managed to accomplish something that other generations have not. They have actually managed to reverse the rate of negative occurrences, while expanding the population. Divorces have gone down, crime rates have dropped, and life expectancy has gone up, despite the massive increase in icky porn.

Really makes you think.

There exists no meaningful data of crime and life expectancy in older civilizations. Your claim is baseless.

Besides, that list is not as rosy as you imply it to be. The massive prevalence of welfare programs keeps crime statistics low despite increasing population, but at the current rates the welfare is unsustainable and creates societal tensions, economic migrants, and encourages dysgenics. It is a bubble that due to deterioration of culture and loss of jobs is about to burst, and when that happens, your crime statistics won't be anything to call home about.

Divorces have in all likelihood gone down because the rate of marriages has gone down. Young men are realizing what a raw deal it is, and all the anti-family, pro-hedonism propaganda that saturates all forms of western media does not help marriage rates. Couples that would be suspectible to divorce are simply not getting married.

Life expectancy rising is due to improving medication temporarily keeping the body together (and unsustainable welfare programs), but it does not improve the quality of life. People live to their late 70's energetically as they always have, but the medication merely extends the phase of looming death and sickness. I would be hesitant about clinging to last threads of life on the expense of its owner, who has to suffer.

No one ever implied that porn causes more crime or lessens life expectancy either, so you're really just attacking a strawman here.

Porn, generally speaking, doesn't destroy people. Even if it did, I would defend it, just as I would defend the right to smoke a cigarette, or drink alcohol.

I realize the 'muh chilluns' argument is very tired, but in this case it's true. Would you defend kids' rights to smoke a cigarette or drink alcohol? No you wouldn't, and parents who give their kids any are thought of as reprehensible. Thing is, you can protect against that misuse quite easily. You can't do that with porn.

Speaking from experience, exposure to porn at an early age can really fuck you up. Parents can't stop children from viewing porn without being excessively draconian: no electronic devices with internet access, must personally know every friend's parents, and friends themselves, must never allow entrance to a place with access to internet unsupervised, must never allow entrance to a library unsupervised, etc. Hell, they need to be more draconian by the day - on sex ed my niece was shown a vanilla sex tape at school, which also included instructions on gay sex, and she's 11. That is what unrestricted exposure to a population does. Shit like this becomes the norm.

Normally I'm against restricting usage of the internet in any way, but in this case I'll make an exception on principle. These lawmakers have no clue what they're doing, though. The solution isn't effective, and I doubt fetish shit is that much more damaging than just vanilla porn, and at the point kids are looking for weird fetish shit, they'll likely be somewhat competent with computers and can find it anyway.

For replies such as these are the inevitable end result of a thread focused on the content within, these kinds of topics should always be limited to insulting the person above you, as the users will themselves offer enough material to craft a meaningful verbal attack, as long as they've posted sufficiently in the past.

Restrict suffrage to heterosexual households with more than 2 children and everything will start to make more sense real quickly.
