In an attempt to thwart smurfs from passing themselves off as beginners while matchmaking for low-rank players, Riot Games is developing a new method to identify smurfs and promote them towards where they belong in the rankings. The new smurf identification system will be tested in North America, according to the patch notes. It will eventually be made available to all servers.
