Way to be biased towards human-subject psychology experiments. I have never had any of my cell-lines show behavioral biases when I tell them all about my plans.

This is an exciting system though! Looking forward to it going live. The PB&J team has been on top of things lately, and I love reading the reasons you guys give for everything. Its great getting to actually see some insight into the methodology/science for everything from marketing to design to player support.

As opposed to the forums, which is almost exclusively terrible low rated players thinking they have a clue.

I can see how you might miss this difference, though.
I've been seen platinum play to 800 ELO, and the higher the ELO, the more dicks and dick waving you see.

I can see how you might miss the difference.

Finally a positive reinforcement system! I'm guessing the "rewards" will be something quite visible to increase the positive behaviour (mentoring, kindness, not raging, conversational chat in matches, etc).

Riot might do special forum avatars or badges or give RP or IP as rewards, but I'm thinking something really visible like special Honor skins would be the best advertisement.

"OMG that skin is so nice, I've never seen it before!"

"Oh it's one of the new honor skins you can redeem if you have a high Honor rating. This one is Honor Alistar. I love his shining golden chains around his body that looks like something from an Olympian god."

I think if this feature is implemented well it could change the face of the game. Even though the majority of players are decent and only a small minority are really toxic, all you need is 1 troll to ruin a match for 9 other players.

One of our goals in Team Player Behavior is to ensure that it's easier to be good than it is to be toxic.

For the good players, this is a way for us to celebrate them and reinforce that they are exactly the type of players we want in League of Legends.
And others will just be completely evil because they want the horns.

This is the easiest way to lose everything and be punished automatically.

Hey Lyte, might as well add to the pile - sounds exciting! As a pretty positive player already, I can't wait to reap the benefits of doing so Can't WAIT until the Halls of Justice and The Honor system is rolled out!

This is a change that I think should of been introduced earlier, but at least they are doing it now.

Hopefully it will clean up the player base a bit.

I'm very excited about this! I always consider myself to try to be a good, compassionate player, (Although I do fly off the handle every once in a while. I'm only human, and we all have let emotions get the best of us) and I'm excited to see what rewards might come from this, and how it may change the community. Even if the rewards are something as small as a summoner icon, a border at the loading screen, a forum icon, or as big as a skin, an IP boost, or free RP, I'm sure there will be people who will change their behaviors and strive to rank up in this system.
