Say our draven goes 23/0/15, but never says anything other than "mia" and "re." Would it be wrong of me to award him honor for carrying the team?
Yes, I would probably not Honor him. The Honor Initiative isn't about skill.

The amount of exclamation points in this post got me so excited I peed my pants. I'll have to see what the post is about after I change.

Sounds a lot like some of the stuff I mentioned and you commented on in my thread about positive reinforcement:

However, players will often challenge Team Player Behavior and say, Dr. Lyte, how are you a doctor?? Dont know you know that positive reinforcement can also improve player behavior? We agree with you! We know that we have a great community, but we havent done a great job providing tools to empower this community to proactively be even more awesome.

Today, wed like to introduce Honor, our positive feedback initiative. Were well versed in research done on concepts in psychology such as positive reinforcement and how it can improve behaviors, and weve also found that some of the most meaningful, memorable moments in League come from the positive interactions players have with each other. Everyones had one of these days: You are struggling in a game and find yourself in a situation where a teammate could have easily trolled or flamed you, but instead goes out of his way to be a helpful, compassionate team-player. He says, Hey, dont worry about the first blood. You may not friend this player or ever play with him again, but this small, kind gesture made a difference and is something you remembered.

Through Honor youll be able to give something lasting back to those players who went out of their way to make your game experience better. Keep an eye out for Honor with the next PBE update, and expect to hear more about it in an upcoming patch!
How about you make sure your servers are working before you come up with time wasters like Honor.

How does this affect high ELO?

What if somebody gave honor to Dyrus every game they met him?

(I know I would, I'm a fanboy)

How about you stop being unintelligent for a second and realize Lyte has nothing to do with server maintenance.

Something just clicked for me...

They mentioned in some patchnotes or another how people don't generally participate in the Tribunal for the IP gains, and that the few people who do are terrible at it, and that they were looking at other incentives.

You will be able to replenish your Honor Pool through Tribunal participation.



Someone brought this up earlier, but I think the question was misunderstood: The points you give out to another player for being awesome, and the points that you yourself acquire are both called Honor. Are these from the same pool? Is this a currency?

Edit: Didn't read back far enough, this was explained

Send him home with pay until Servers are stable, hes taking up too much oxygen from people that are supposed to make sure the game works.
