Neat new reputation system for Xbox One
Official Xbox Magazine has revealed how Microsoft’s next-generation platform will utilize the new reputation system for online play. Currently on Xbox 360 players are identified by stars and type of players they are. However, it doesn’t actually work, nor does it get rid of the trolls despite the amount of stars they have.
Xbox One will be making sure that trolls and people who say rude comments to others for no reason will be placed with other players that behave exactly the same way they do. This way, all the competitive gamers will be together, trolls will be with trolls and so on.
Here is the full speech from Microsoft’s senior product manager Mike Lavin discussing how the new reputation system will work.
The new reputation system will be different from Xbox 360 that “ultimately if there’s a few per cent of our population that are causing the rest of the population to have a miserable time, we should be able to identify those folks.”
Laving continues to talk about how matchmaking will match players with similar reputations.
“So there’ll be very good things that happen to people that just play their games and are good participants. And you’ll start to see some effects if you continue to play bad or, or harass other people en masse. You’ll probably end up starting to play more with other people that are more similar to you.”
He continues to state that players will not be able to reduce someone else’s reputation on purpose.
Let’s just be clear, there is no way at all that a conglomerate of people can conspire to sink your Reputation on the system,” he said.
“The way that it’s built fundamentally stops that. 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.”
The whole new reputation system sounds decent to me, and I am looking forward to seeing how it evolves once Xbox One gets set up with a big install-base on Xbox Live.
