Note: I apologize in advance if this is not the proper place to post. I do not post on this website often, and I am only somewhat familiar with proper board etiquette. The Xbox 360 board seems to be a ghost town, and this is more about Xbox Live, not necessarily a specific system. This more pertains to both 360 and XB1 players.
I think a lot of players can suffer from this, regardless if you're innocent or if you're a modder/hacker/troll. With this new system, say Microsoft receives complaints about a particular player. How will MS know whether or not the complaints are justified (i.e. if said player is actually cheating) versus a player just playing by cheap means, or taking advantage of flaws in game mechanics? (I.E. quick scoping in COD, or turret spawn killing in Aliens: CM).
But what do y'all think? Will this new system actually do some good, or will it continue to be as ineffective as the original rep system?
This is just a friendly debate amongst gamers; food for thought. :)
It will probably be something like what's happening with Call of Duty right now. If you're cheating you get banned from the game, if you're not cheating an in a room with a cheater and don't know it then you're probably banned like a lot of people have been recently. --- Nintendo Network/PSN ID: ZEROthefirst 3DS Friend Code: 1306-6232-5350

It did get me thinking though, how will MS know the difference if a player is playing cheap, or actually cheating? Could someone potentially get reported for quick scoping and/or camping in COD, or turret spawn killing in Aliens: Colonial Marines (yes, I love the multiplayer in that game, don't judge me) Even though a lot of people hate being on the receiving end, I get bad rep for "unsporting conduct". Some of the things I do are cheap, yes, but I am not a cheater/modder/hacker. So theoretically with this new system, a bunch of butthurt people could kill someone's rep even if that person isn't cheating?
Just wait for all the unjustified bans to start rolling in which will force M$ to flipflop on yet another stupid policy. --- Former Xbox Fan - A Flying Ewok Official Arrow in the Knee of the Skyrim board (360)
I heard somewhere that supposedly there will be failsafes in this new system to check whether or not a person is cheating, or is just a better player. Any idea how they would check for this? And even if you're not cheating and you get reported, your rep can still go down?
