I have only one real gripe with Xbox Live and that is that the feedback system is worthless. I play Splinter Cell every night with my friend Robert and we run into jack ass after jack ass. Anyone who has played the game for more than a day knows what I am talking about. These are the guys who start out as spies and then when your turn to play as spies comes up they quit the server.
Today we were playing with a couple of guys named Shinok and Tamal. I asked them right away if they would stay so that we could have a turn as spies. They assured me they would. Of course as soon as their spy round is over the server goes down. I immediately went to leave feedback but none of it was relevant. Not only that, no one can ever see the feedback for a given player, so it’s worthless. There needs to be a new system where players have a raking right next to their name like on Ebay. I want to know if the person I am playing with is a fucking dropper or not.
You should at least be able to click on someone’s name and bring up their feedback history. Give them a place to explain poor feedback just like Ebay does and call it good. I think you’d see a marked improvement in the way people behaved on Live and if you didn’t, at least you could avoid the idiots easier.
Here’s my suggestion for a new feedback screen.
