I've been waiting for a commendation system like this for a while now. I like it. I've played plenty of matches where someone does something praiseworthy and I would have liked to give the player more than just a gg wp.

However, players will often challenge team player behavior and say, “dr. Lyte, how are you a doctor?? Don’t know you know that positive reinforcement can also improve player behavior?” we agree with you! We know that we have a great community, but we haven’t done a great job providing tools to empower this community to proactively be even more awesome.

Today, we’d like to introduce honor, our positive feedback initiative. We’re well versed in research done on concepts in psychology such as positive reinforcement and how it can improve behaviors, and we’ve also found that some of the most meaningful, memorable moments in league come from the positive interactions players have with each other. Everyone’s had one of these days: You are struggling in a game and find yourself in a situation where a teammate could have easily trolled or flamed you, but instead goes out of his way to be a helpful, compassionate team-player. He says, “hey, don’t worry about the first blood.” you may not friend this player or ever play with him again, but this small, kind gesture made a difference and is something you remembered.

Through honor you’ll be able to give something lasting back to those players who went out of their way to make your game experience better. Keep an eye out for honor with the next pbe update, and expect to hear more about it in an upcoming patch!
those with honor get prizes!

I'm really optimistic about this. Lyte, care for a game, so that I can forgive you for first blood?

I love this idea!
Sounds a lot like the system from dota 2 that lets you give points to people who were good in certain ways like helpful/forgiving and other things, this will work great!
