Botted account, as the name suggests, is an account that has been levelled by a bot via the usage of a third-party program. These programs basically play for the player. Of course, it’s a far cry from how a human would play, and it’s easy to spot a bot if you somehow get one in your game. Despite the shortcomings, botting accounts is common to save time.
Botted accounts are usually cheap due to the low amount of effort required to make one. The price can go as low as a couple of dollars for an account. There is another good reason for such a low price point; the ban rate for botted accounts is high.
There may be folklore surrounding the issue and one-off stories of accounts not being banned for years; however, the truth of the matter is a botted account is always at risk of a ban. So it’s ill-advised to have one as the main account.
With a quick google search, you can find a myriad of websites that sell botted accounts. We at Unranked Smurfs, however, do not sell these. We only sell hand-levelled accounts. They may be a little bit more expensive, but it’s worth having peace of mind knowing your account is safe.
We are avid opponents of botted accounts. As these are subpar accounts that are very likely to leave the customer disappointed. So why is it important to avoid purchasing botted accounts? Well, here are a few of the reasons:
Unfortunately, there’s no way of telling if an account is botted or not for sure, especially if it’s a well-made bot. Most botted accounts are played in Co-op vs AI games, and these accounts will heavily feature those. Obvious bots will have terrible KDA, unorthodox builds, and subpar rune and summoner spell choices. Good bots, however, will often have none of the above.
If there are any Normal games or Arams played, and the scores and builds seem to be decent, then it is most likely a hand-levelled account. Unfortunately, we cannot offer better ways of telling if an account is botted. Sadly most hand levellers play CooP vs AI, and it might be difficult or impossible to distinguish between a skilled leveller and a very good bot. This is why it’s important to buy from a reputable seller like us.
The only good indicator of the source of the account is its price. NO ONE will sell you a hand-leveled account for 5$, it’s an investment of about 100 hours. So selling it at this price is just impossible to be economically viable.
