The whole point is to honor people that YOU DON'T PLAY WITH. It DEFEATS the purpose.

I wasn't saying to be banned for honoring your friends either, but for ASKING for honor, yes, yes you should be.
why should people be banned for asking for honor? often times people forget to honor so i dont see a problem with asking especially if you honestly feel you deserve it. in the end it doesnt matter if theyre asking seeing as how they cant force players to give honor.

Also my point is it doesnt make sense to be ABLE to give honor to your friends but still be banned for it. riot can easily disable that feature.

Isnt this why we have the tribunal? if someone is trolling, then they should be reported and THEN banned or have honor depleted to 0. not simply banned for using a feature that is enabled and ready for everyone to use.

It is just a flawed system. Receiving honor earns you rewards. In order to get the rewards you need to have a lot of honor. Thus many people do not give honor because they want the rewards to be as rare as possible when they earn them.

Give the people the ribbon who traded honor in the beginning and don't give it to players who didn't want to take part in trading honor and actually earning it. GG Riot.

I was just about to post something like this.

I still get honor fairly often from teammates... maybe about 1 every 3 games, but honorable opponent honors have seemingly vanished. I don't believe I've changed anything recently, but I simply never get honored by opponents anymore. Additionally, the honorable opponent badge is getting rarer. I kept track for about 20 games about a month ago, and basically every queue had an average of 4 or 5 honorable opponent badges between the two teams. I'm in a queue right now where I'm the only one with a badge, and this has been very common lately.

The novelty has worn off. There is no reward behind honor except for some tiny ribbon you'll barely notice, especially considering the difficulty to actually get it.

Personally, I couldn't play the whole of october, where honor started. When I came back to the game in november I already barely noticed honor, I only wondered, why everybody except me had some red ribbon next to their name.

In the around 150-180 games I played since then I accrued a total 42 honors, 2/3 of those being teamwork. On the other hand, a friend of mine (who plays a lot more than me) played throughout october and accrued over 300 honors in just this one month. Since then he made about 70. I can't even remember if he still has that red ribbon, even though we play together every few days.

The ribbons will disappear more and more as less and less people bother to honor and as such people fall below their threshhold.
As iatre said, in november nearly everybody had a ribbon (mostly red), nowadys I barely see anybody with it.

The only thing left from this honor system is people saying "GG WP" in the end, which they are only saying in hopes of getting honor. They can troll the whole way, and in the end, that's what they say. Even when they completely stomp the enemy team, they tell them that they played well. Or when there is a intentional feeder or an AFK/DC/Leave, they say that it was a good game. It's actually quite annoying sometimes. Although, if someone does say, "Thanks for the game" or "Sorry about your circumstances" when someone disconnects, I do tend to honor them.

I also dont understand why people who que together should NOT be able to honor each other.
I almost always que with friends. It just makes no sense to have the ability to honor someone on your friends list and be susceptible to a ban for doing so.

people would just abuse this to no end!

I'm not complaining because I don't get honor when I work to earn it so much as I'm writing because NOBODY honors in my elo anymore. I asked in my last game why nobody does and about half of my team responded saying they simply never think about honor, they forgot it exists.
If that is the case, then I would say the honor initiative has failed if many players that could be actively involved completely forget it exists.

Has anybody else noticed a massive decline in the use of the honor system?

I occasionally get honored in normals, but more rarely in ranked. I have a tendency to honor whenever I can for people that deserve it. This causes me to run into the problem of not being able to honor certain people because I don't have 4 left to give for a very good team, or opponents that were very well behaved or even complimented us on good plays. It's not that I don't want to, it's just that I ran out of honor to give.

Yeah, it so sad. I hardly get honored, even if i am trying to be polite or to motivate ppl.

When honor came out, i had pretty fast the yellow ribbon which was pretty rare. Then i lost it, bc it has to be a combination of all the honors, so i ended up with the red very common ribbon.

After a warning (which is unfortunate, but i deserved it) i ended with 0 Honor and its nearly impossible now to get a yellow one, bc ppl dont honor and its pretty hard to get the secret combination of a yellow ribbon.


Very sad, it was pretty cool and i liked it very much. Riot must do something against it or just remove the Honor button, since nobody cares at all.
