Leaderboard exploit

I would like to bring to light a bug that exists in your system of leaderboard. I don’t know how the system which determines the country of a user works, but it is flawed.

Examples :

  1. https://www.sostronk.com/user/JaneDoe_iwnl_
    is an Indian and not from Thailand as shown on the leaderboard. Gives him easy route to reach the leaderboards as there are less number of players from SEA region as compared to India and get free points without coming in limelight. Also, I would like to believe that this person is not clean as well but that is a completely different issue. For proof that this person isn’t Indian, you can refer to this pug : https://www.sostronk.com/pug/6751055920758784
    He can be clearly heard communicating and talking in Hindi and having the same ping as other felllow Mumbai players on a Chennai server.

  2. https://www.sostronk.com/user/4k2
    is an Indian as well, also, he is not clean, thought I’d just put it out there. Can’t seem to find proof for the same at the moment but it was a pug when we were on the same team on Inferno is all I can remember.

It is very difficult to identify the true location of a player, and in some cases its also complicated if the player has lived in multiple countries in the last few years. Hence, we let players decide which leaderboard they want to be part of it. Go to your profile, and set your country.

Beliefs don’t matter, post PUG links with rounds of blatant cheating behavior.
