Hacker Manipulates Splatoon 2 Leaderboard Pleading for Anticheat

All is not well in the Splatoon 2 competitive landscape as it appears that cheaters are running rampant and manipulating the game to give themselves an unfair advantage.

One frustrated squid kid took matters into his own hands (tentacles?) to put out the message to Nintendo: Please Add Anti Cheat. Literally. An anonymous player edited his X Power to place himself in the top 4 positions on the leaderboards to write out the phrase “Please Add Anti Cheat” in a desperate attempt to call attention to the woeful state of affairs.

Ironically, Nintendo has responded by banning him completely from online play (a response he was prepared for.)
