Some day, Lyte is going to post about something, and there won't be 50 thread pages of people trying to find loopholes in whatever it is he's talking about.

And then the world will end.

First-Because people are ******s while annonymous!

Second and more important - League of Legends philosophy its: If I won its because I carried, If I lose it's because my team fails. There is no middle point, people won't accept that they were carried or accept so easily that someone it's bettter than they. That's why you had the problem of fake reports in the first place, Riot, THINK!
on the otherhand, falsely reported individuals now have a more quickly noticable counterclaim. Furthermore, when getting matched in ranked, this could have a slight influence.

This will need a lot of work. This kind of systems can be easily abused by people. You should make it so people who are together in the same premade group can't +rep eachother so people doesn't just farm it. And it should only be allowed in real matches. It also shouldn't be allowed in short (15 min or less) matches, again, to prevent abuse of the feature.

Great idea! The concern I have with the honor system is that friends who queue with each other will abuse it after each game. Would it be possible to implement a filter so you can only "honor" a person you aren't queued with?

Sometimes is needed, because if that multi billion dollar world renowed game company was perfect the balance changes would be PERFECT AND NOBODY WOULD COMPLAIN!

How about then the community step up and say: Jayce lore is **** change it! and it was changed.

I have some apprehension about how this system will be treated by players, I can see almost everyone just playing champions that are easy to do well with in the mindset of: 'Well if I faceroll the enemy team my team will honour me' which feels like the wrong reason to honour someone, it seems like it was intended to be used to 'brofist' someone who was cool, or was nice, not someone who carried.

I can see this going as far as someone carrying a team single-handedly but being a bit of a negative nelly, yet still getting honoured since he carried, and that just feels wrong.

But still I'm looking forward to this system and already catch myself being nicer!

Is there anyway you can release the information for how much "anticipating" honor will decrease toxicity? I know some people will already try to clean up their act before it's even released.
