You can only Report or Honor a player at the end of a game. They cancel each other out.

Actual rewards?

Again I apologize if this has already been said.
We're not talking about rewards at this time. Consider the Honor Initiative as a multi-phase effort, with Phase 1 being to just test the system and determine whether it is accurately identifying positive players.

It's a very large-scale, unpredictable experiment, so we have to take things one step at a time. The whole purpose of this experiment is to try to find the players who are legitimately being Honorable, regardless of any tangible rewards. Once we identify those players, who knows what may happen?

@Lyte: I'm sorry if this has already been asked, but can you get warned/banned for abusing the honor system? For instance, asking everyone in game to give you honor and saying that you will do the same for them?

This is great, and wonderful news!

Remember, fellow forum posters, to take a break and stretch your legs every 15 minutes or so. You will feel much better after a long night of internetting!!!!!!!!

It's possible to end up with a Tribunal case for abusing the Honor Initiative but the Honor Initiative itself does not ban players automatically. In addition, it's possible to lose all of your current Honor if you abuse the system.

My advice is, don't be dishonorable.

Any chance of an ETA?

Also, during stage 1, will players have any way to know whether they qualify as a 'pillar of the community' (as defined by you)?

Oh, Lytey-pooh!

I've just got a teensie-weensie little question for you!

Will you be adding in fabulous in-game e-motes so I can be extra pleasant to my teammates and enemies? I think it would be really cute and fun if I could have an animated table-flipping e-mote that I can say every time after I get killed! LOL!!

We'll be making an effort to identify pillars of the community.

No ETAs! We'll be revealing more details about the Honor Initiative and start some new discussions around it sometime this week.
