If you are recognized. I think it rep would be ok but only if it would be invisible for a player. Also it should be different in different circles - like if u are contract assasin then the rep would be only among other assasins and the clients. For sure not some mobs on the streets. If u are rockstar everyone may know u witch may even encorage ppl to attack or kidnap u. And u should only see your reps through NPC reactions and comments, news articles etc.Rep would be nice as it is part of the original PnP. It would also help keep some of the predators (gangers, hostile edgerunners, corporates,.. ) off your back.
I dont want the game to be simplified or to have my choices to be based on some points that I can get or loose.
