Xbox One Reputation System Detailed

Microsoft Senior Product Manager Mike Lavin has detailed Xbox One’s reputation system which aims to prevent bullies from ruining games for the rest of the players.

Simply out, the reputation system will match repeat offenders with other trouble makers and away from other players.

"There'll be very good things that happen to people that just play their games and are good participants," explained Lavin. "And you'll start to see some effects if you continue to play bad or harass other people en masse. You'll probably end up starting to play more with other people that are more similar to you."

Each player’s reputation score is calculated over time in order to ensure that the system can’t be manipulated by a group of players to lower an innocent player’s reputation.

"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,” exclaimed Lavin. “Blatant things like that have the ability to quickly reduce your reputation score."

The system has no effect on people in friends list. It affects anonymous match-making only.

You're soooo full of it!

Lol, as if you can prove it. But I do enjoy thumbing down your comments. Clearly, it bruises your ego. OMG! it felt sooo goood thumbing down your comment and thumbing mine up, hey, I have to reclaim my self-esteem somehow since douche-bags like yourself keep taking it away.

My motto: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

Man are you dim!

Reclaiming ones self-esteem (self respect) and thinking to much of ones self (ego) are completely different; they differ, yes, but are still different nonetheless. But you wouldn't know that. And don't pretend like you're a different person every time, you ain't fooling anyone. Besides, if I bother you so much why even communicate with me? Now who is calling whom out, Troll!

My motto: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

Wow, you are getting paranoid

Wow, you are getting paranoid :/ It's not my fault that there's more than one person who can call you out on your faults - but then again, according to your signature, everything is everyone else's fault anyway, so the idea that anyone else could be right about you idea clearly goes against your standard line of thinking and bypasses your complete lack of self awareness. And I think you might need to re-think your definition of 'ego' - it's a noun, not a verb.

Can you really blame me?

Paranoid? Don't make me laugh. You cant blame me for categorizing every anonymous user as being one in the same. See, I'm not a coward, that's why I choose to use a fixed name so users can identify me. I don't hide under the pseudonym "anonymous" so I don't have to deal with the responsibilities and consequences of my actions; which is more than what can be said about you. Are you a coward?.. But it's true, whats in my signature is the basic concept of cause and effect; there is no "standard line of thinking" - just an action that has an equal and opposite reaction.

My motto: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

"You cant blame me" > "I don

"You cant blame me" > "I don't hide under the pseudonym "anonymous" so I don't have to deal with the responsibilities and consequences of my actions;" Yep, you just blame everyone else instead. Dude, self-awareness. Get some, or you'll forever be a puppet and a fool.
