The last part: yes. Communism. Discuss why communism is perfect on paper and not as such in practice. Perhaps you and your psychology major colleagues might have heard of this grand experiment. I alluded to this earlier, the various forms of government, but I have no problem reiterating it.

Is there a way to remove honor if the player is unhelpful, or refusing to communicate? Or is the only way to deal with this situation to report a player?

I just think the system needs both sides. We can all slowly build up honor, but if we are not honorable in a game then I think players should be able to give a thumbs down that removes an honor point. With the way the tribunal works, Riot seems to want players to police other players. I think this would be a good way of doing that and not sending everything to the tribunal.

Perhaps you might have read Lyte's post, in particular the part where he said this was a multi-phase process. Just because this step does not work as an end state doesn't mean it won't work as a first step, and doesn't mean that it won't accomplish the particular goals that PB&J have in mind for it (which aren't necessarily the broader goals that PB&J have in mind for the Honor system).

Look, if your first reaction is "It is blindingly obvious that this is a bad idea," you should consider that maybe you're not the only genius in the universe, and that maybe someone on PB&J has already accounted for that 'obvious flaw'.

Why do you keep implementing awesome things! Just another reason I keep playing LoL. Another stat to work towards!

This has needed to be implemented for a long time. LoL is pretty notorious for having the worst community. The players that do right by other players and make more of a positive impact than a negative one, should get something out of it.

the players who play more games are going to have more honors am i correct? if so, the honor measure is not so accurate.
