This feature doesnt even make sense. Unless there is a moderator to evaluate players voted to kick, who says the player voted to get kick are the worst players or toxic?

Maybe it's someone whos too good or using a character viewers dont like etc.....

Haven't dug through responses yet but one thing I'm used to is gaming media exaggerating the truth or straight up lying.

I would laugh if this is actually a pay to kick MTX and not putting any stock into this until I see it.

I hope this is one of those Sony "just in case" patents.

If it ever actually happened, does anyone think it would be used to curb toxic behavior? Because to me this sounds like exactly the sort of system that would be abused by toxic players and their legions of tween fans.
