A new PC hack for Street Fighter 5 has been developed by X-Kira. Known for finding quite a few of the game's secrets by digging around in the files, the PC-savvy player found on a way to never lose LP in ranked matches.


Basically, this hack makes it so that the match results don't reach reach the game's servers when you take a loss. In fact, the match lost won't show up in your battle log at all, however, the opponent still receives points for winning and the match can be found in their log.

Below, you can see the match results failing to upload.

Based on the video description's loose translation, it appears as though X-Kira isn't looking to release this hack in any way, nor use it for his own good. Instead, this was created for research purposes, showing that fraud in this game does indeed exist and to raise awareness.

As enticing as this hack may seem, it is probably in everyone's best interest to steer clear if a download link should ever surface. Capcom has made it a point to crack down on those who attempt to use cheats in order to manipulate the system, serving hard bans to boosters and the like.

Those who take advantage of a hack like this will surely face the same fate. You can check out the hack in action below.
