Microsoft improving ‘reputation’
Microsoft is looking to encourage good behaviour with online play by making your reputation sit alongside your achievements. The idea is to encourage people to behave online by matching like people i.e.: Good guys can play with good guys and bad guys (a.k.a. Trolls) will be made to play with other bad guys (a.k.a. Trolls).
But don’t worry, to fall into the negative nancy category takes time. In other words, a group of people who just don’t like you can’t flood you with negative feedback leaving you fending Trolls.
“It’s very much over a period of time – if we see consistently that people, for instance, don’t like playing with you, that you’re consistently blocked, that you’re the subject of enforcement actions because you’re sending naked pictures of yourself to people that don’t want naked pictures of you… Blatant things like that have the ability to quickly reduce your Reputation score.”
Though we don’t know what it will look like physically we do know that it will sit alongside your achievement score.
“It will be as fully visible as Gamerscore in your profile, so it’s taking an as-important role.”
