Review bombing only happens when there's some kind of BS regarding the game...

True but it can potentially hurt sales which is probably why valve is changing it. Also it's annoying when you're trying to read an actual review of the game. PUBG just got slammed a week ago I think. Fallout 4 was recently bombed too.

Not always Fan Boys and trolls review often ...that's why Metacritic is really only a 10 or a 0 system.

Not true. Look what happened with Titan Souls just because the devs had a disagreement with TotalBiscuit. A twitter argument and his fans review bombed the game. Fair. No, no it wasn't. TotalBiscuit can be and often is a total jerk. There are plenty of instances like that.

Valve barely get anything done on their platform. I guarantee ppl will find a way to exploit The "fix" they'll come up with.

Doesn’t Steam only allow reviews from those who actually bought the game?

Yes but you can buy the game, play for up to two hours, review bomb the game at any point after 30 minutes of play, and then get a refund. You can also see plenty of reviews where people have 40 hours in a game. And then the negative review consists of one comment. Ridiculous things like "I heard this company is planning on...(fill in the blank)" People review bomb based on innuendo and rumor. utterly stupid.
