Amazon Introduced New Tactics to Combat The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Review Bombing
A 72-hour delay to combat the worst trolls of the internet.
To help combat that problem, Amazon has introduced a new delay tactic for its new shows like The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.
As reported by Variety, Amazon actually first debuted this new initiative for A League of Their Own, where it delayed all user reviews by 72 hours.
Trolls love to be the first to tear something down and the hope, it seems, is that the initial hurdle will be enough to deter them from coming back.
It appears to have worked, as A League of Their Own currently has a review score on Prime Video of 4.3 stars, with 80% of users voting five stars and only 14% of users voting 1 star.
The Rings of Power as user reviews for the series are currently sitting at 39%. This is opposed to the critic review score of 84%.
While not all reviews have been stellar for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, its user review score on sites like Rotten Tomatoes does seem to be a bit low.
Especially ones who take issue with the decision to cast actors of color as elves, dwarves, harfoots and other folk of Tolkien’s fictional Middle-earth."
