The 5 for wins/1 for losses isn't why people cheat/wintrade, they don't care at all about how many points you get for a win or a loss tbh. They cheat for ELO.

By making a loss hurt ELO so much, this has caused the immense influx of wintrading; deliberately dropping a match to cause a loss on one side while the other gets the win.

The 5/1 ratio is just a misguided way by BW to try to incentivize winning, but it doesn't impact ranked player effort in most cases at all because people are more concerned about their ELO and it's a separate issue regarding wintrading imo.
