It’s a point system
Microsoft has introduced the Enforcement Strike System for its Xbox gaming platform. This is a system of punishments for violations of the rules of the platform.
In fact, this is a system of penalties that will be applied to those who behave incorrectly from the point of view of Microsoft. And the most active violators can receive very substantial punishment.
It all starts with the fact that already for two penalty points the player will be suspended from the platform for a day. For four bans, it will already be for a week, for seven, the restrictions will last for two months, but for eight, and this is the maximum, the punishment will be suspension from the platform for a whole year.
The most toxic Xbox gamers will be banned from a number of platform features for a full year.
Here it is necessary to stipulate that this does not mean that the user will not be able to play games – they cannot take away such an opportunity from him. But the gamer will not have access to voice chat and, which is very important for many, to the multiplayer mode in games.
Actually, since the Enforcement Strike system is primarily focused on multiplayer projects, this is quite logical.
One penalty point can be obtained, for example, for using cheats or profanity, but for inciting hatred, the user will receive three at once.
The company notes that each report of violation is reviewed manually, so there should be no erroneous punishment.
There are also some interesting statistics. In 2022, less than 1% of all gamers received any kind of warning, and only a third of them received a second. That is, usually players stop violating the rules of the court after the first one.
