A common MMO issue has arrived reeeally fast to New World as well, as there are many reports of players, including big Company leaders, getting suspensions, potentially due to being mass-reported.

In several big reddit threads players are discussing how the New World suspension system works. With several Company leaders reporting receiving 24-hour bans following other Companies mass-reporting them, while claiming they've done nothing wrong, there's a debate going on about whether these suspensions are automated. If there's simply a threshold of x people reporting a player and they get automatically suspended for 24 hours, that's a system that's primed for abuse - and apparently this was noticed and reported back in the beta as well.

This seems to go the other way as well, as single players are potentially ganged-up on by Companies:

However, Amazon Games have stated that all their bans are "reviewed by humans before any decisions are made" back in the beta, so it's unclear what exactly is happening here.

This isn't a new topic in the MMO world, as mass-reporting is a big problem pretty much anywhere where there are many players, as there will always be unfair reporting, whether it's just "I don't like that guy, let's all report him" or even to get an advantage like may be the case in the post above. It's also difficult to know what " reviewed by humans" means in this context, as it could just be a few community support staffers rubber-stamping the mass-reports, or they could be truly looking over the potentially insanely large quantities of these reports and giving a fair judgement on each. It's always possible reddit posts like the above aren't being entirely truthful in their claimed innocence as well, but in either case it's a tricky subject and we may never know what's actually happening.

However, the mere potential of a Company leader or similarly important player for a community being "taken out" simply by mass-reports is a troubling one and hopefully we hear back from Amazon Games on this matter soon, as the comments during the beta on the subject should be updated for release.
