Smurfing And The New Wave Of Gaming
For those who don’t have a clue, the world of gaming can be quite intimidating. Ever since gaming went online, gaming has developed its own codes of conduct and its own mythology. The games, especially situational and tactical games have acquired a sort of cult-like following.
Just like anything so prolific, there are legends and myths. The world of gaming has a few people who are so well-known that in online games, some players simply don’t want to take them on. Such players usually try to play anonymously. These alternative accounts are known as smurf accounts.
The concept of smurf accounts came about during the times of Warcraft II : Tides of Darkness, in the mid-1990s, when two players Geoff Frazier and Greg Boyko were known to be unbeatable at the game. However, the players wanted to continue playing without being shunned by the community for being too difficult to play against, so, they created “smurf accounts”. The name came to be since the alternative names used by the palyers were named after the popular children’s program, The Smurfs.
Buying Smurf Accounts
The concept of having a Smurf Account has become so popular, that people are now buying these accounts and playing against n00bs. While some players have the best of intentions while using Smurf accounts, a lot of players go online through Smurf accounts just to harass players.
However, there are 3 easy steps to buy your Smurf account:
