    Smurfs are the alt accounts of generally higher skill players. What makes them contentious among the
    community (any online community really), is the fact that smurf accounts are made either to :

    Practice on a character that they are less proficient with. The problem here is that rather than take
    said character into other modes of play (such as Practice, Quick Play, or vs. AI modes), they bring these
    characters in the Competitive/Ranked setting, which results in their poor performance, since after all,
    they're practicing with the character. As such, they don't take losses seriously, since this isn't their
    "main" account, and they basically are an automatic hindrance/handicap on their team because of it.
    It isn't fair to the team they're on at all.

    In other cases, a top player will make another account to help "boost" a friend's account. In doing so,
    they have a significant advantage over the team they're facing. This is again, blatantly unfair, because
    the skill gap shouldn't be that drastic between players in a given bracket.

    There are those who seek to purposely "rank down" in order to go into the lowest brackets. Doing so
    by throwing games, allowing them to derank (and unfortunately, affecting the teams they are on who
    also derank as a result).

    Overall, smurfing is a form of cheating, and it's pretty negative, so don't do it.
