When I leveled up a couple of days ago, the McLaren F1 GT popped up and I bought it and tuned it really well for the S class Breakout Hopper. I won more than a dozen consecutive S class Breakout Hopper races with it in a CLEAN way, almost always being more than a second a lap faster than anybody else. At some point I heard a player say through game chat: “Invite everybody, because I want y’all to see this”. Suddenly the lobby filled up from around 15 players to a full lobby. I kept winning races with the McLaren and then the same guy said: “He is cheating, isn’t he? Report him everybody, report his a**”.
Long story short, I now have a bad reputation on Xbox, just because some frustrated kids were worse than I was and they reported me for cheating. Xbox Support and Microsoft aren’t willing to help me and because of my bad reputation, there are some games I can’t play online anymore. The only advice I got from Xbox Support is to play more multiplayer…
I wonder if anyone else here has experienced getting an unfair bad reputation and knows how to solve the issue. What do I do now? Drive slowly on purpose? I just hate to see a decent driver like me, who races clean with other clean drivers, getting a bad reputation, when childish rammers are still out there.
It won’t make any difference unless LOTS of people report you. On the 360 I was reported for bad language by a couple of people but they were unknown to me coming into game chats with people who were quite happy with my spicy tongue whilst drunk. You definitely have to be bad to be banned from anything
Your “! Reputation: Avoid Me” rating is from the Xbox Live Policy Enforcement Team (PET), which investigates and verifies each report. If you have multiple games in which you’re now either permanently or temporarily removed from participating, that is a decision from PET, not Turn 10 or Playground Games.
Only PET has the authority to put that warning up on your Xbox , based on their observations after investigating reports. Such as your numerous FM7 game clips driving the wrong way on tracks, intentionally bashing into other cars head-on, cutting corners while going the wrong way and playing bumper cars instead of actually racing.
Not “roasting” anyone, just explaining the Reputation notation doesn’t come from Turn 10 or Playground Games, but Xbox Live and the Policy Enforcement Team after making truthful evaluations, and the probably reasons why the player was labeled as “Avoid Me” by the PET folks.
Best way to correct that reputation is by keeping within the rules, not trying to cover up the wrongdoing with excuses.
And Happy Holidays to everyone. Hug your loved ones, and do something kind for a stranger even if it is just giving them a smile.
