Xbox One's Reputation System: Where Trolls Fear to Tread?

"Microsoft announced last week that it would be implementing a new Reputation System for the Xbox One’s new and improved Xbox Live. This means that users who frequently troll abuse and downright antagonise other users will be filtered out to allow folks to just sit down and game in peace. The feature is reminiscent of the same from Halo 3, which allowed players to dictate who they do and don’t want to play with. Of course, Microsoft assured us that the system wouldn’t be gamed, so a huge mob wouldn’t be able to down-rank you into oblivion."

This may result in sore losers downrating the people that beat them.

I have so many complaints for bad language on Live now and I never even use a headset.

Me too, I never use a headset and I got complaints of bad language and get this: Aggressive play.

Guess I should stick to co-op.

Ya that's pretty much happened to my current rating. I usually play with my mic on mute just because I don't like talking unless its with a group of friends and even then we're in a party of our own.

That's the reason why this system might backfire to certain gamers. Especially new or casual gamers playing online and being ranked down due to doing terrible or camping in a spot. That means that players will end up with camp infested rooms most of the time. What's the use of leaving a room and joining a better one if you're going to end up with the same kind of people? I predict "ranked" rooms and "public" rooms in the future, which will split the community even more.

BS.

people will abuse this, and rage down vote you if you beat them online.

last system was abused so i don't see it changing and the report system is no different. i would suggest they ditch both and only allow + rep votes for players and flags for texts/voice comm's that can be forwarded to ms and reviewed.

i can see this being abused by trolls

But those abusive trolls are unlikely to be matched up with you anyway. So this could work. People with good reputations will play with each other and won't have to worry about being reported on. Let the trolls have fun with each other.
