In SEA region that only works when you're not MGE+.
If you have very good trust factor it also becomes an issue. Because Valve prioritizes trust factor over ranks so most of the time I go against people between DMG and Global Elite, despite me being MGE. And I also play against hackers every few games despite having a good trust factor.
Funny enough, I tried unranked multiple times, and I've yet to meet any hacker.
Prime seems to have more hackers than non-prime. LMAO
