Valve’s recent crackdown on smurf accounts has sent ripples through the professional Dota 2 community, with several players facing bans. Notably, Quinn “Quinn” Callahan and Janne “Gorgc” Stefanovski have publicly expressed their support for these actions and are eagerly awaiting the ban of Egor “Nightfall” Grigorenko and Danil “gpk” Skutin’s smurf accounts.
Quinn took to Twitter to express his satisfaction with the smurf ban wave, stating, “The smurf ban wave is so based, it’s been a while since I’ve wholeheartedly agreed with a decision so much. Cya later 87 nightfall accounts,” showcasing his enthusiasm for the impactful measures taken by Valve.
Similarly, Gorgc, during a recent Twitch stream, discussed gpk’s evasion of the smurf ban wave and expressed his hope that Valve would take action to ban the smurf account. Eventually, Valve did ban gpk’s account, adding him to the list of Dota 2 professionals caught in the ban wave.
Additionally, in an earlier incident, Gorgc and gpk had a public altercation during a game, adding further tension to the situation. However, Valve’s efforts have proven otherwise, with close to twenty professional players seeing their smurf accounts banned, disproving Gorgc’s previous statement about Valve only issuing warnings to professional players.
As the community eagerly awaits the ban of Nightfall’s smurf account, it can be expected that Valve will continue to take measures to ensure a smurf-free Dota 2 experience in the coming days.
