Xbox will reward you for good behaviour

27 Mar 14

Xbox has announced that gamers will soon be rewarded for good behaviour online (while penalties will be given to those who don’t conduct themselves in an acceptable manner).

The Xbox Live community-powered reputation system has been redesigned for Xbox One to help match you with gamers that you will enjoy, and to create the best online gaming community.

Here’s what the reputation levels mean for you:


  • “Good Players” – The majority of gamers will fall into this level. As we’ve said before, we have plans to introduce rewards for good behavior and look forward to sharing more in the future!


  • Warnings for “Needs Work” – Beginning this month, some players will start receiving reputation warnings as their reputations drop due to feedback from the community. The purpose of these communications is to remind players about their effect on the community and encourage them to have more positive interactions. These warnings are based on community feedback collected since Xbox One launched.


  • Penalties for “Avoid Me” – If players do not heed warnings and continue to have a negative impact on other players and the Xbox Live community, they will begin to experience penalties. For example, people with an “Avoid Me” rating will have reduced matchmaking pairings and may be unable to use certain privileges such as Twitch broadcasting.
