Microsoft Recruiting Players to Hunt Xbox Trolls
A common complaint of online gaming in its present form is the prevalence of toxic players who make the experience unnecessarily miserable for others with their behavior. Often, such people are found on Xbox Live, and Microsoft is rolling out a pair of new initiatives to help hunt down their trolls.
The first is Enforcement United, where Xbox players can sign up to serve justice to players who may be making the community a worse place. The second is Xbox Community Level, a program where players can level up and earn rewards by being a positive member of the Xbox Live collective, like volunteering for Enforcement United.
“We’ve heard your feedback that you want ways to positively shape your Xbox Live experience, and we feel this is a great way for you to get involved,” Xbox Live policy and enforcement director Glenn Kaleta wrote in an Xbox.com blog.
