Metacritic, a website that recently included media ratings, removed more than 6,000 “suspicious” negative reviews from “Death stranding.” After the deletion, the average score for The Death Stranding rose to 7.4 points from 5.1. At present, the poor review of the work at the time of the release of 3004, praise for 8582.
After MTC confirmed that the poor reviews were classified as “suspicious activity,” MTC removed some user reviews of “Stranding.” While deleting the poor reviews appears to boost the overall score of the players at Death stranding, the MTC says the ratings were deleted because of “potential scoring manipulation.”
An MTC representative explained that they were doing this to combat scoring tampering.
“A large number of user-generated ratings for Death stranding have been removed as suspicious activity. We take potential scoring manipulation very seriously, and we have a lot of policies to keep ratings fair. Moderators regularly check the site to remove any records that do not comply with our guidelines, and there is an audit queue where Metacritic users can flag unusual behavior. Moderators then check and delete any records that violate our Terms of Service. “
As we all know, “Death stranding” is a very controversial game. Previously, there are a large number of players on the MTC evaluation bombing, many players directly to 10 full points, while some players directly to 0 points, is not too objective.
