So I have been messing around with the Tribunal a lot lately and I have gotten a few cases like this and didn't know how to judge them correctly, it was on the subject of Smurfing, and the person accused of so called "Smurfing" had a good game score "duh" but other then that nothing bad no bad language in the chat log, no trolling or looking down on others, or any thing else that merits a report. but he still had like 4 reports against him, and the only thing he said in the chat log was "btw this is a smurf account" and he only said that because he was asked by a far more aggressive playerers on the other team. I have had a few like this so I pardon or skipped them, what would you guys do?
Is smurfing report worthy? because I do sometimes when trying new stuff.

sorry for the dumb question

Smurfing isn't against the Code, AFAIK, so if that's the only reason they're being reported, just pardon.

There's nothing wrong with smurfing as long as you just keep quiet and play, the issue comes if the smurf is being an ***. Though in your case it's pardon, as the smurf did nothing against the rules.

I agree. Even in low lvl matches it's relatively normal that there's a really good player now and again. Sucks if they're on the enemy team, but it can be fun too to try and go get them. Often you try learning a bit from those players by fighting with/against them.

But when smurfs start acting like sob's, they really hurt the community. Newer players will have less fun, might consider quitting or might think flaming lesser players is the way to go (the really strong player does it and look how awesome he is with his high kill count). Scum who do that deserve a temp IP ban imo so they can't play with either smurf or main for a while. Gives them time to rethink their ways.
