post from Ubisoft
explains its new Fair Play Program a new "platform" on
Ubisoft Connect "designed to raise awareness on disruptive behaviors in the
gaming community, help players recognize their own triggers, and how they can
better understand the roots of those behaviors to overcome them." As that
states, the idea is to educate players about how disruptive toxic behavior can
be in multiplayer games, and how to recognize their own toxicity. There's a
presumption that players are not aware of their own negative behavior, and it
would be interesting to learn if that is accurate. Word is:
are intended to help players understand situations that cause negative
behaviors, the behaviors themselves, and the impact they have on other players.
The Fair Play Program is designed to teach by example, rather than give an exact
definition of toxic behaviors with no room for nuance. The videos will show
instances of disruptive behavior that will help players think differently about
their own interactions while playing, as well as tools players can use if they
are exposed to disruptive behaviors.
