Leaderboards compromised because of trial exploits

General Discussion
Since two days ago, leaderboards became compromised and Blizzard takes no action to stop this. I will not explain how the trial exploit works because I don't want people to abuse it, but this is stupefying already. People working for climbing that ladder and now their work gone to waste.

Why aren't all the records from the last 2 days removed ? IT'S BEEN 2 days of abusing.

This seems legit to anyone ? People with no rankings before, now just YOLO for a conduit with barb laying hundreds of hours from others to waste. And Blizzard is wondering why players are leaving this game.

Streamers are playing 59+ GR just for YOLO. STREAMERS... Good overview of your game.
The point of this whole topic is for this to be fixed, not exploited more.
There won't be any fix, they announced downtime (and 2.1.2) on tuesday. This exploit only helps you to upgrade your gems, thats it.
Nothing changed on the leaderboards yet.
Wake me when something actually happens...

I'm sorry to inform you that leaderboards have been ALWAYS useless since day 1, you only have to look "turbohud diablo" in google.
irreversible despite the common view among ppl who have only heard about turbohud, turbohud doesn't help you really get more dps, more ehp or anything else. It barely opens your eyes in appr. 40y around you so you don't really see whats behind that corner. It's nothing like this exploit.
On tuesday this will be fixed wit the patch, then you can reach these levels anyway.

Turbohubd "just" tells you where are the champion/elite/unique monsters, so you don't have to waste your time killing mobs. I can't get to higher tiers grifts not because I die, I can't because I run out of time, and I'm 100% sure I would gain some more tiers if I had an app pointing me where to go to fill the bar quickly.
Unfortunately for me, I'm not a cheater :(

Ya not really digging this exploit. Just clear the leaderboards now and be done with it.
Look at all the people replying to this thread that either A) advocate for exploiting B) don't care or C) point finger at the OP for bringing an issue to light like he's at fault instead.

Shame on all of you.
There is no exploit if there is no economy, just my opinion

Oh and how about the good old saying: How does it affect you?

Just play legit and your way, i dont give a f about those cheezy guys...
There was never integrity in the GR leaderboards.

Nyan proved that when he admitted to cheating and the devs did nothing.

Cash grab'd

Sorry to say this but the above quote hits the nail on the head.

Exploit? nope people using game mechanics in a more beneficial way (with a loophole that shouldn't even exist!) no dodgy manipulation just someone tried something so basic that actually worked it seems (even though I am sat here with piddly level 31 rings because I refuse to do similar, my choice btw)

The whole game is a BoA game so nothing that anyone else does actually impinges on you in anyway any more.

I enjoy playing the game solo, trying to get past grift 40 solo (yes I am probably a nub) and gearing up my chars, damn how dare i enjoy this game ;)

Some might say they've been compromised from the beginning simply because they don't measure exactly the same thing from player to player and rift to rift.
