What is reputation ?

On Board Game Arena, we would like to have a strong competitive atmosphere with a respectful and fair play ambiance.

To achieve this goal, each player has a reputation profile which is the representation of his general attitude with others players. This profile is composed of 3 items:

  • Opinions from other players (reputation_up.png and reputation_down.png)
  •  % of games you finished
  •  % of games you finished with no clock penalties

Seeing the reputation profile of a player, you are able to check if his behavior is good, if he won't quit the game before the end, and if he respect time limits.

How to increase my reputation / what makes my reputation decrease ?

At any time, you can give others players reputation_up.png and reputation_down.png marks.

  • a reputation_up.png if you liked to play with him/her, and recommend to play with this player.
  • a reputation_down.png if you disliked to play with him/her, and discourage others to play with this player.

You can only give a single thumb (green or red) to a single player. If your opinion evolved you can click again on a thumb to reflect this change.

As soon as you give a "red thumb" to a player, a warning message is displayed when you try to join a table where this player is. In this situation it is recommended to leave the game or to expel this player.

By nature, opinions are subjectives. There is nothing we can do for you if you receive a for an unfair reason. However, we know by experience that this system has a lot of advantages and give a relevant information.

Advices: how to get plenty of reputation_up.png

  • Be polite ! Say at least "hello" and "good luck" at the beginning of the game. "good game" ("gg") at the end of the game.
  • When you need some time to think, click on "I would like to think a little" link.
  • Stay calm in any circumstances: it's a game.
  • Don't press your opponent to play if he has some time left.
  • If you really can't finish the game (this is not supposed to happened...), then say you are sorry and leave the game by your own to save your opponents time.
  • Be a good loser: if your lose because of bad luck or a strategy you dislike, don't blame the luck or your opponent (and don't give him a reputation_down.png for this reason!).
  • Be a good winner: if your opponent makes a mistake you can signal it to him, but avoid triumphalism and provocation.

What are the consequences of a bad reputation ?

A bad reputation makes you suspect to your potential opponents. You will have to explain your situation, and maybe some players won't take the risk to play with you.

It is also possible to filter players by reputation on a table. The worse your reputation is, the bigger difficulties you will have to find opponents.
