An Amazon patent was discovered on the network , which describes a system for protecting players in online games from toxic behavior. The company will offer a matchmaking system in which gamers will be matched according to their behavior.
The document also provides an argument in favor of such a system, since the modern selection of players, focusing on their skills, is imperfect. Therefore, Amazon wants to suggest creating separate matches for those who often leave the game or use bad language.
At the same time, the company notes that it is rather difficult to give an exact definition of the concept of “toxic”. In this regard, the players themselves will determine which behavior is considered acceptable and which is not.
It is not known when such a system will be implemented. The MMORPG New World is in development at Amazon, and the system can be tested on it.
