About two-thirds of the sanctions imposed in the first half of 2022 were the result of proactive detection, Microsoft said. A third of the sanctions were made in response to player reports that Microsoft received 33.08 million in the six-month period.
Negative communications from other players were behind 46% of user reports and ahead of complaints about player behavior (43%) and user-generated content (11%).
