Just to be clear, Lyte is not ruling out the possibility of having rewards for being Honorable in the future. However, it is interesting from a scientific view to identify those who are Honorable just for the sake of being such and helping creative a positive experience for others.


I am aware of this. I have read every response. Fluff and business as usual. I just don't understand how a professional person in nearly any capacity expects humanity on an anonymous medium to be excited about zero incentives. For shame.

I wonder how instantaneous this reporting feature will be. The Tribunal, by comparison, loses some of its behavior management aspects by removing the punishment away from the action taken in the game that led to it.

LoL. People are to lazy to click a button to report and you think a valueless thing like honor will make a difference? Here's an idea, remake matchmaking and fix the ****in game instead of adding more stupid **** that doesn't mean anything.

I'll tell you what will happen with zero incentive: not what you want as a company. Have you never studied psychology, even in its remedial form? If you answered yes, for shame for shipping this feature this way. If you answered no, I thought so.


As someone who currently works in retail and deals with a thankless job, very few appreciative customers, and a manager who thinks that the only thing he should ever do is yell at people for doing something wrong(never appreciating them for the great things they do right), I like this Honor thing.

I don't care if you don't get anything for it. I think it's nice to know that people think you're a pleasant person to play games with.

As a pseudo-intellectual purporting to understand psychology and harassing someone for having "never studied psychology, even in its remedial form" you should probably have looked up the numerous studies that have been done on the benefits of positive reinforcement over punishment, too.

What's funny is the nice people will end up being the people who use honor, so you will have only the people who go out of their way to be nice both using, and getting honored by this. If Lyte's plan is to identify the people who care, this will find them incredibly fast.

Honestly, badges have significant meaning to many people. Many players last season put in an extra effort just so they could have an icon next to their forum name. Many players purchase skins. And I'm sure many players will improve their attitude a bit so they can get Honor.

I would wager you're mistaken if you believe the badge is why people put in extra effort. The badge is just a token reward, just the same as achievement points: meaningless and trivial. The tangible rewards the vast majority of any humans would want are tangible, beneficial rewards. This is the skin and the other arbitrary rewards they threw together to encourage people to better their game. I just looked at the Jarvan skin and though, "hey, at least it's a reward that's worth working toward." I look at this feature and think, "Someone needs to be working in a bit of a different field."

Hi I almost exclusively play 5v5 with 4 other irl friends. I obviously consider these players to have good team work and they are nice guys. How can we award eachother honor without seemingly abusing the system?
