Player scams their way to top of Street Fighter 5 online leaderboards, video footage captures their cheating in action

A new player has climbed to the top of the Street Fighter 5 leaderboards, but it seems they've done so via unscrupulous methods.

As you'll see in the images below, Best_Korea has suddenly jumped to a whopping 55,132 LP, beating out the actual top player, Wolfkrone, by nearly 20k points. The player's battle log shows victories for the last 50 matches they've played in:

It seems this player has figured out a way to have losses marked as wins and LP attributed accordingly. You'll see footage of Best Korea's cheating in action below.
As word spreads, Capcom will surely rectify the situation. In the meantime, should you come across Best_Korea online, don't expect things to end well.

Thank you to Mustain21 for sending this in.
