Concede on the sideboard screen
My opponent concedes as they say it was a bad matchup, goes to sideboard and concedes the whole match there and I just get 1 step in the ladder.

For months, more and more players concede while sideboarding (using ESC+concede), taking an advantage of the partial result, especially if the match-up is bad for them.
Yesterday only, on 6 duels, it happened to me 3 times.
The software keeps only the present results match after match, instead of the whole Bo3 result. Which brings clearly to cheating behavior as players are now doing so take advantage of the system failure. Herebelow are some conceding exemples:
1 / Player A concedes while sideboarding at 1-0 : he wins on the score of 1-0 and get one rank brick. Doing so, no chance for player B to catch-up with a proper sideboard strategy as it's Bo3 !
2 / Player A concedes while sideboarding at 0-1 : he is "sanctioned" with only 1 rank brick loss. Totally unfair for player B who should have the 2-0 victory.
3 / Player A concedes at 1-1 : duel result is considered as a draw for both players.
So on player concede half way on a Bo3 duel, and still, he/she get or a partial rank win, or a draw, whether he/she should lose it all.
There is a void here. Huge and unfair. And some players are taking advantage of this to climb the ladder. This is cheating and it needs to be fixed ASAP. Thanks for reading
Enclosed are 2 screenshots of some games were it happened.
I also know it as been reported already few times, without response or reaction.
It would be nice that this trouble get fixed. Thanks.
