Dota 2: Team Secret’s Zai abandons ranked Dota 2 game after realizing he is playing with 3 account buyers. When it comes to account buyers in Dota 2, even the pros do not like it. Recently, Zai from Team Secret realized he was playing with 3 account buyers. This led to him abandoning the game immediately upon finding out.
The Dota 2 community has many account buyers, and both casual players as well as pros encounter them. Many times, people just continue to play along amicably. However, Dota 2 is a team game, and if you aren’t up to the mark, account buyers become a liability to the team. This can lead to a lot of frustration and anger in-game.
While the community itself can be toxic at times, in the upper MMR brackets, players simply tend to leave matches when they know they are playing with account buyers. This can save them a lot of time, energy, trouble and it will also prevent them from getting triggered.
Recently, one such incident has happened with Team Secret’s offlane/support player, Ludwig “zai” Wåhlberg. Below, you can see the YouTube video as well as read more about what happened and why he chose to abandon a game he was playing.
Zai abandons ranked game after knowing he is playing with account buyers
In a recent video, which has been making the rounds on YouTube, zai is playing the hero Ursa Warrior in the offlane role. After collecting the Bounty Runes at the start of the game, one of his teammates who is playing Void Spirit tells him that one of their teammates, who was playing Tiny, is an account buyer. Immediately, zai says that this happens with him a lot.
Then, he decides that he wants to leave the game. But, before he abandons, he goes and dies to the enemy tower, making sure the game won’t be scored.
In the comments section, one person explains that this is how MMR boosting is done in higher brackets. Probably zai already knew that they will be losing this game because Tiny & Nature’s Prophet are Actors who wanted to boost their ‘client’ by losing the game on purpose, thereby increasing the opponent’s MMR.
