FACEIT launches its new community-centric approach to detect and punish negative behavior and griefing named FACEIT Justice.
FACEIT announced its new approach to fighting negative behavior within their games. “Justice” is a “new portal available to the community to review and judge potential cases of reported negative behavior during a match on FACEIT”. “Justice” is their second approach to detect and punish negativity. Recently, they launched “Minerva”, a machine learning AI technology. “Minerva” has the ability to detect and punish negative cases of verbal abuse.
“Justice” will work similarly with Valve’s Overwatch. A certain number of users (called “Judges”) will review cases of verbal abuse or griefing. FACEIT will give several clips around 5-6 minutes to the Judges. After reviewing the clips, Judges will select a verdict based on a fixed set of criteria which will result in a positive or negative outcome.
To become a Judge, FACEIT will select you based on some criteria. Firstly, based on your number of FACEIT games and skill level. Secondly, you will need to have a clear ban history and be accurate with your past reports. Lastly, you will need to be an active member of the FACEIT community. Once you are invited to “Justice”, you can enter the portal.
FACEIT is a third-party site that allows you to play competitive matches in a slightly different format than official matchmaking, mainly on CS:GO. It has been around since 2012 and has over 6 million users. Also, they are organizing e-sports leagues on games such as CS:GO, League of Legends, Dota 2 and Rocket League.
