If someone happens to be that kind of person, having them screaming at their screen and being nice in chat is exactly what they should be doing and should be rewarded for that, no?

Guess silence being great virtue won't work anymore in LoL matches heh?
Don't know what's gonna be worse in the end: tolerating few trolls or trying to stand all the sweetness everyone being nice.

Scientists publish AFTER they finish research. If they do it prematurely someone else might get results faster and claim it as their own work.

Thank you for adding this. Hopefully it will encourage players to stop harassing each other
over first blood or mistakes. And hopefully I'll see players that deserve to get it.

We're not talking about rewards at this time; this is a relatively new experiment in League of Legends where it's difficult to predict the exact outcomes. We want to first identify what kind of players are getting Honor and how effective our anti-abuse systems are.

Like the Tribunal, we'll take things step and step and further flesh out Honor as the data comes in.

You don't have to worry. Judging by how you behave in the forums, I doubt you'll get any of those worthless points.

You won't be able to remove Honor from other players. That would be quite a troll feature!

If you happen to coincidentally Honor someone who also Honors you, it's no problem at all.
Thank you for answering that. I am still doubtful how this is going to work but I'll take your word for it.
