Steam will cease to consider the attacks by reviews in the rating of games


The attack by reviews (review bombing) is when users begin to shower the page of any game with the negative reviews most of which often are not connected directly with entertainment. The problem quite often arises in Steam that prevents to learn the real rating of a game. Today Valve told about how it will fight against it.

the company shared Details in the blog. For a start she reminded of a system which almost in real time defines "any unusual activity" in reviews. On it its tasks come to an end - further she transfers data to employees of Valve who independently deal with a situation.

If the team of workers identifies the attack by reviews, then employees will note its period of time and will report this information to developers. All responses during this time will not be considered on average rating. However in the blog note that nobody is going to touch reviews - the page of a game will just notify that some of responses do not affect rating.

Besides, it will be possible to refuse new function - in settings of shop there will be the necessary option which will allow to see rating taking into account all reviews.

of Valve specified that mass flow of the responses connected with changes in terms of service and use of DRM programs will also be considered as the attack not on a subject. As the company considers, to most of users of Steam similar things are simply uninteresting, and those for whom it is important, already in detail study a game before purchase.

was not also without defects what it is honestly reported in the blog about. If you publish the review during the attack by responses, then whatever objective was your review, it all the same will not get to the overall ranking. This results from the fact that employees are simply not able to read each review, and the attacks not on a subject distort rating only temporarily.
