Honor has so many different numerical values to it.

Each persons honor weight is different. This means that if you ggive honor a lot, your honor isn't worth anything.

If you recieved honor from the same person twice (even if it's a random), the second honor is basically worth absolutely nothing.

Random people giving you honor is weighted more heavily then people you know. This means your friends giving you honor is worth less than a random person, even if it's the first time.

How much honor you need to achieve a ribbon, differs based on the amount of games played you have. This number however starts from the time they normalized it. So games done previously to the start of honor did not count, only games after honor. But lets say you played 1000 games since then, you have less of a chance of getting a ribbon then someone who has only played 100 games since then.

I'm still not convinced it's possible to earn a ribbon if you queue almost exclusively with friends. But like these people above, the time for caring about it has long past

But i got a Red ribbon and even when i stopped playing for a good 2 weeks (beach trip) it didn't disappear even though my accidentally earned green ribbon did. Im not complaining mind you. I prefer red ribbon's aethetics and was disappointed to find green had higher priority and even sent in a ticket to see if green could be removed (they said it couldn't). I'm curious, i notice in the actual wording it doesn't include Honorable Opponent so does that mean that HO doesn't decay with time, or did i just happen to have so much more HO then whatever green ribbon is (i think friendly) that it didn't decay before i came back to earn new honor?

EDIT: For reference my honor is 54/21/223/147
It sounds like you had multiple ribbons awarded to you. While you decayed down from the Great Leader ribbon, your account now shows the rarest ribbon you have earned(the Green ribbon in this instance). It could be that you have earned other honors but only the rarest of your awards will be shown.

We have heard this concern in the past, and it hasn't fallen on deaf ears. Lyte has mentioned that he and the PB team will be taking a look into the honor initiative in the future, to better tune the rate of the rewards and so that the system will be more intuitive. While I cannot go into more detail due to not being involved in the process myself, I hope what I said could shed a ray of light on your honor woes.

I had my green ribbon for a very long time; it's disappeared since I've moved away from ARAM/bot games. It'll rarely pop in normal queue; I've never seen it in ranked.

@rhojin there needs to be a minimum threshold. I have 185 teamwork ribbons earned at a non-ribbon spamming level...and no ribbon. my friend with 80 games played has 33 and hes got one. Yes i've played a poop ton more games, but honoring someone at a higher level requires something special....and it doesnt happen every game. It needs to be attainable without having to beg for them or be a level 20 bot player.

Honestly I don't see what the fuss is about honor ribbons.

I've always thought they were ugly, and to top it off they are completely and utterly pointless, so when I got one awhile back I had to go to the trouble of making a support ticket and GD thread to get rid of it.

You should be grateful that ugly clutter on your loading screen went away on its own.

Also, since there are Reds here, has anyone at Riot ever considered giving players the ability to display which or their current ribbons shows up at loading? (or not display them at all, as I and several people I know of would prefer)

I know the current system has them displayed by "rarity", but honestly some people just have color preferences and/or are more proud of specific ribbons, and forcing them to display a non-preferred one over their favorite ribbon seems counter-intuitive.

In the early days there were a lot more ribbons than now. When they just started the system you would have 2-3 of them in every game. Now i havent seen one in at least like 20 games. Have they changed the values or is the decay simply to much? (or are all ribbons now concentrated in diamond/challenger?)
