Microsoft has been talkingup its new troll-segregating reputation system for the Xbox One since last July. Now, the company is finally ready to roll the system out and issue warnings to players who are the subject of frequent complaints by other players.
As Microsoft announced this morning on Xbox Wire, this month will see players "start receiving reputation warnings as their reputations drop due to feedback from the community." While this kind of feedback has been collected from players since the Xbox One launched, the company is apparently just now turning those reports into tangible alerts for problem players.
Players will drop to the "Needs Work" reputation level if they receive frequent negative reports, and they will be reminded "about their effect on the community" and encouraged "to have more positive interactions," Microsoft said. Those who do not heed these warnings and continue to receive negative feedback will then be placed in the "Avoid Me" reputation box, which brings "reduced matchmaking pairings" and potential limitations on services such as Twitch broadcasting.
