It looks as though there will changes coming to the Xbox One’s Reputation System. According to a Tweet from Xbox Director of Program Management Mike Ybarra, “looking at Reputation and have changes in the works”.

No more specifics were offered on the subject. In its current state there are three categories of Reputation score that a player can have, good, needs work, and avoid me. This score will be shown on a player’s gamercard.

“The more hours you play fairly online without being reported as abusive by other players, the better your reputation will be,” Microsoft said. “The algorithm looks to identify players that are repeatedly disruptive across the community on Xbox Live. The vast majority of players do not regularly receive feedback from other players and, thus, will stay at the ‘Good Player’ reputation level.”

Apparently Microsoft’s Reputation algorithm will adjust for reports that are false from players trying to hurt the score of highly skilled players. Responses to Ybarra’s Tweet show that skilled players are still being reported and having their Reputation tarnished despite Microsoft’s algorithm.

Hopefully Microsoft will be able to improve the current state of the Reputation System.
