I ofc don’t know the exact location details, but when you view the leaderboards from the US you get different results than what you get in Europe or Asia for players that have changed their name.
A couple example players:
Num 70 Briarthorn will have the correct name in Europe/Asia, but will have their old name brimful in the US
Formerly Eclipse, now Win
Num 42 Win will have the correct name in Europe/Asia, but will have their old name Eclipse in the US
This is not new, I’ve been aware of this since April (sorry for not reporting sooner ). I’ve seen this behavior multiple times, and have had various people also report this behavior.
In case it’s helpful, here are reference VPN servers that show this behavior (all Windscribe):
US: New York | Empire
Germany: Frankfurt | Castle
Korea: Seoul | Metro
