Exclusive: Why it definitely isn't good to be bad

A total overhaul of Xbox Live is one of Microsoft's big plays for next gen, and there are fascinating consequences as regards the Reputation system. This is being upgraded from Xbox 360's simple five-star rating to a learning system which will track player misbehaviour and effectively create tacit communities of ne'er do wells, safeguarding the rest of us from their evil designs. Speaking to OXM at an exclusive Xbox One reveal event in May, Microsoft's senior product manager Mike Lavin explored the ramifications.... read more

Yeah Xbox hell it is for me. Don't think I'll learn to use the word 'fudge' quick enough.

The New Dark Side of Xbox Live: Microsoft explains Xbox One'

Postby Metalrodent » 03 Jul 2013, 12:19

that sounded a little like there won't be private chat for parties, which is true will be very annoying.

also I do hope the reputation system isn't pointless like the current, I apparenltly am 60% trashtalk (I never talk to randoms) and 40% unsporting (I only quit when I have to, and have only ever betrayed by accident or the odd revenge). On the flipside people who playlike complete arsehats seem to have 5* ratings anyway, making it pointless.
The changes over time thing sounds like a better system

Never understood what difference reputation made or what zone you selected either.

This raises the grim, intriguing prospect of a layer of the community only the most dastardly offenders will ever experience - an Xbox Live populated exclusively by griefers, trash talkers, and sharers of illiterate comments about your parentage or sexuality. It's almost like Microsoft has created the Xbox Live version of hell, we suggested.


Sounds... lovely...

Hopefully this doesn't mean I get put in that group if I do terrible, I'm not exactly the best player around.

Mines at 11%, never could understand where that came from, I've never once used the mic outside out party chat.

My friends and I use Party Chat because we don't want to hear the other players as there is always someone who has their TV turned up too loud and through the mic it is deafening as is someone who never stops fidgeting and people talking gibberish in a different language.
Of course the main reason is the amount of prepubescent shut-ins where Xbox live is the only ''socialising'' they actually do yet all they can manage to contribute to a conversation is Racial/homophobic slurs.

Also who the heck sends naked pictures over Xbox live?

I prefer to get my bits out on my webcam site, pm me for the link :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

This is brilliant.

I suggested the same thing during Halo 2 when Bungie unveiled their Banhammer and banned thousands of players. If you ban cheats, they just re-register. I said they should just match cheats up against each other, and have games that were full of bridgers and standbyers.

So good that this is becoming a reality.

In theory it sounds like a good idea, and it might encourage me to play more online, though I would like to keep party chat as I am a bit more comfortable with that. In practice they said they would track players being booted, but I have been booted loads of times simply because I was a girl!! So would it look bad on me and I get consigned to Xbox hell? I would like to know a little more and maybe see an example of it in action before I pass further judgement, like I said in theory it sounds good, but there could be areas that might end up being exploited by the miscreants they are trying to prevent from spoiling my gaming experience

So what about people like me? I report 1 hacked player and the next day i have 75% bad rep? This is a dumb idea.

I'd say you had a lucky escape just being booted, I was playing COD 4 Modern Warfare and at the time I didn't have a headset but a girls voice came through my TV and the amount of weirdos who were vying for her attention, asking things like ''do you have a webcam'' ''what are you into...babes'' asking for pictures and other things that I wont mention here.

I was slightly disturbed by this, felt like I was eavesdropping on a sex line conversation.
