I play ranked Twisted Treeline at a high level where there is a relatively small pool of players. Often times after finishing a game an requeue-ing you get matched against the same team you just played.

Here's the problem:

We all have honor ribbons, and it is a dead giveaway that our opponents are facing the same team when they see the triple honor ribbons in champ select again. Now all of a sudden they have information we do not, and they can target bans against us which creates an unfair advantage. This is not a hypothetical situation, this has happened to us several times.

Solution:

1) Don't show honor ribbons to the opposing team in champion select
2) Have an option to disable your honor ribbon from appearing.


Thoughts?

Not like it matters. We beat them anyway.

I still prefer an even playing field.

I don't think we'd change how ribbons are displayed, sorry. Lyte might have a better answer for you.

Of course, the real solution is to spam honorable opponents :3

This is actually something I agree with 100%, my team often had their most powerful champions banned out right after the opposing team saw our ribbon configuration. Not to mention its a dead giveaway when you face a team for a second time in a row and now they know how to assemble their team comp to counter you.

Try sending in a support ticket asking for your honor ribbon to be removed.

Like you said, being able to figure out your opposition from ribbons is just stupid.
Plus, those ribbons are ugly ^_^

I agree and also prefer having an even playing field.

I'd also very much like the option to choose which ribbon we display. I value the Good Teammate hats far more than the easily-earned Honorable Opponent for a variety of reasons, and I'd rather show off that I have at least one of them.
