BeatDropper = Smurf?

Post by Chaotic » Thu Jul 20, 2017 1:45 am

I've come to believe that BeatDropper isn't a new player, but instead is a smurf. For reference, BeatDropper was a 50% locked player and was the absolute last pick in the S10 draft.

BeatDropper's Battle.net profile link (paste into sc2 and click on it to jump to his profile): battlenet://starcraft/profile/1/14414875620880154624

Below is replay evidence from 17-18 weeks ago (approx. 4 months) that is intended to show clicking patterns that are not characteristic of a new player.

When looking at the score screen details, SC2 displays the current usernames, whereas in replay, the actual username used in that game will appear. By matching the end-game APM (148) between score screen and replay below, I was able to confirm that in this replay, BeatDropper was using the name Groovy.

This doesn't help much, I had never heard of the names Groovy or BeatDropper before. Looking further into this replay, we can see some of this player's clicking patterns.

I have my own opinion on who this smurf actually is based on his clicking patterns. However, determining the exact identity of this person is besides the point. Punishing the player behind this smurf is not really possible unless the person comes forward and admits to it or the league forces an ip check. However, punishing the smurf is possible. Priority should be on maintaining league fairness, especially in probe, and not allowing smurfs to continue to play.

I tried looking into him to figure out who he is and if he was a smurf. It's unfortunate that the League Management continues to let people sign up who are probably smurfs (like BeatDropper and NWImmortal) without doing any investigation of their own, meanwhile actual players like AppleSoup get removed from sign ups. I added BeatDropper on Real ID (his name is Ernesto C.) and all his friends on BNet were also Real ID, so I thought he might not be a smurf. Right after the final game of the season, BeatDropper removed me from friends.

If you want us to ban potential smurfs, then we'll have to ban iFound for a game or two for attempting to hide true ID by going on SEA account and not telling anyone who he is other than people who notice because they have him added as a friend.

NWImmortal is not a smurf Mets, he's played in 1500+ pub games and used to be garbage and is still only 6th round material. Can't confirm beatdropper though, I've played with him a few times as of late and he didn't impress me

NWImmortal was claiming to be Coconuts, but now the real Coconuts has returned and says he isn't NWImmortal. So who is NWImmortal?

he initially was intentionally playing bad but has since given up on that strategy as he realized that con takes months to come to fruition.

He's trolling you like he normally does to everyone, he isn't anyone else. Ask Bulb or Dust if NWI is a Smurf, they've seen him in pubs throughout the past year like every single day

Bulb is a dirty child but he got an eye for talent cause he plays so many pubs and knows how good people are. Don't forget S8 his team would have been him Dust and Blitz if blitz hadn't thrown a tantrum about who he wanted to play with
