    They forgot the part where they reset everyone's leaderboard scores because of all the exploits and bugs making it possible to have ridiculously long times. The whole thing is basically bunk at this point - at least on the worldwide scale as opposed to your own friends list.

    Haha, actually, What valve never thought of is using sv_cheats to get incredibly STUPID times. But heres the trick, the only time the server will report to steam a players time on a specific map is when the whole time dies. So if you do what I did(because im smart like that) and go into the safe room and close the door, it will end the map, and not record the time.(but it makes for awsome screenshots)



    And i'm awful at pshop.
