When I try something, anything, I try hard. When a successful company with reportedly successful executives try something, anything, I am certain they try just as hard if not harder. Why you don't attempt to hit it out of the park on phase one is beyond me.

If you don't mind, you'll have to excuse yourself from the conversation I am attempting to have at the behest of this fine upstanding Riot employee.

For some reason I read "Honor" as "Hodor".

Oh, of course they will SAY it is their intention, but let's be real. Others have already established more eloquently than I that, unless the Honor system offers a constant, continuous reward for those players that need significant incentive to be decent and respectable, toxic players have no reason to change. Even then, that kind of reward would only cheapen the system as toxic players faked their behavior to get their reward. That's the quickest way for the system to become ineffective and irrelevant. Respectable players must actually approve of the system for it to work to promote respectable play, not the toxic players out only for the incentive.

The easy comparison is the change to the Tribunal rewards system. Riot found that those players who wanted to impact the game in a positive manner would do it of their own accord, while those with false intentions were attracted to the IP bonuses, and muddled the system.

Respect to people who get the "Helpful" honor.

I rarely see anyone trying to be "helpful" without being met with "STFU" let alone met with appreciation.

I really like this addition. I just honored my teammate who had great teamwork, and it's a really cool feature to be able to kind of give your teammates a "thumbs up" like that.
