Dota 2 community is plagued with issues like smurfing and boosted accounts where online matches are stacked heavily against legitimate players. For an example, smurfed accounts are new accounts created by existing skilled players who can then be matched with low-levels players and score easy wins.

Boosting on the other hand, refers to a services offered by third party where the Dota 2 accounts gets leveled by other players. In order to access Ranked Dota 2 matches, a players is required to spend 100 hours playing online, thus, a lot of new players rather buy a boosted account to save time. With that being said, it is obvious that Valve is ramping up efforts to curb on-going issues by releasing new patches, quality of life improvements and tweaking its detection system for Dota 2.
