With so many online video games, a few parameters need to be set to ensure everyone is enjoying themselves. If people can repeatedly spoil games for other players, it hurts the online community and drives people away. Pokémon Unite fights it using its Fair-Play Point system. Here's how it works and how to get more Fair Play points.
Fair-Play Points in Pokémon Unite are essentially a consistency barometer with which you complete matches for which you start a queue. You start at a maximum of 100 but can go down to 0 if you quit games early or if your Pokémon is inactive in current games for too long. If you leave a game, you lose a point. As for the minimum, in the short term you will lose two points, a prolonged absence will be five and a very long time (defined as "harmful" by the game) will require eight.
There are four different levels in the Fair Play point system. They are:
- At least 90 Fair Play Points: You can redeem a daily reward in the Fair Play Points section of your profile
- 80-89 points- You lose the daily reward
- 60-79 points- You lose access to ranked matches
- 59 and below - Lose access to Standard battles against other players
If you continuously lose Fair Play points, you will be banned from the two main game modes in the game if it is severe enough. If you lose that many points, you can get them back, but it will take some time.
To earn Fair-Play points, you will have to play entire games without stopping at all. Ranked and standard games will reward two points per full game, while CPU games will reward one. However, there is only a maximum of five possible points that can be earned in a day, so if you let your Fair-Play points get too low, you'll be stuck in CPU games for quite a while.
