Xbox Live’s Reputation System Adjusted


New guidelines are in place for Xbox Live’s community behavior, expanding on the reputation system which has been in place since the Xbox 360. Under this refreshed system, players rated “Good” may receive unspecified bonuses in the future. Those middling in their behavior will receive infractions and warnings letting them know to clean up their play. The final level, “Avoid Me,” will begin to strip features from the console (such as Twitch streaming capability) until behavior improves.

Community-based reporting remains, although Microsoft’s algorithm, “adjusts for false reports from people that might intentionally report someone of greater skill or for other griefing purposes.” No additional specification was offered.

This system of player ratings is currently live on Xbox One after its reveal back in July. Xbox 360 players do not seem to be under the same guidelines.
