Random off-topic, but I call shenanigans.

Revealing your experiments are EXACTLY what makes a scientist a scientist. Reproduceability is exactly the fundamental thing that makes science what it is.

Lyte do you have any estimates on how many people wills how up in the tribunal who use Honour as a way to abuse other players ie threatening to not give honour and things like that?

one question though - Is giving a honor to someone on your friends list considered abuse of the system? not like farming it, but just one time to say "hey, thanks for being cool to play with".
Nope, this is fine. If you queue up 50 games in a row and Honor him 50 times... might be suspicious.

Hello again Dr. Lyte, I was wondering if you read what I posted earlier (and if you can answer, ofcourse)!

EDIT: Seems like you did. Thanks for answering!

1. Is this "Honor" feature about rewarding good plays or about rewarding good behaviours? As I said, I want to use this feature right so I think you get what I am asking.

2. I am one of those guys that has gotten soooo tired and frustrated of all selfish actions (pre-game insta-lockers and offenders, in- and post- game hostility, the all-chat verbal abusers), which has gotten me to play lots of coop, and only play normals if I have at least one friend with me. What I mean to ask is:

2.1. If my friend(s) is a good guy in-game, even though we are premade, I would "Honor" him(them) every single game the exact same way I would with any person that made my playtime better or by any means has displayed a nice behaviour. Would this be considered an abuse of the system? I don't add, invite or premake with people I consider abusive or offensive as they ruin my playtime too, I only premake with people who really are either fun or nice.
2.2. Are dialogues going to be taken into consideration? There are people that don't like talking in game at all (Guardsman Bob rarely types anything), but are really enjoyable to play with. If I "Honor" such a person, does my credibility go down?
Looking forward to your answer!
We should be rewarding good behaviors, not just skilled play.

We took into account that friends are usually biased towards their own friends and think they are awesome (which is fine!) However, you should only Honor your own friends when they are truly exceptional.

Just curious because what it sounds like from reading some other posts, some many never honor anybody for reason 1 or don't want to fall into the area of being discredited honor because with this new feature, a lot of players will try to get honor.. always! Some games I'm sure, everybody on your team may honor everybody or people will be strict on honoring and limit it to the most honored
1) The amount of Honor you have to give is a separate pool than the Honor you receive. You don't lose any personal Honor for handing out Honor!

2) The ways you use Honor and hand them out have no effect on how you receive Honor. Two separate parts of the initiative.
