Thank you. As miserable as 1200-1300 Elo can be, I play with a lot of people who are gracious in defeat. I have had several conversations with the enemy team post-game about what each of us did well and could have done better, in a completely civil and constructive manner. These good players are out there, even at lower Elo, there's just no way to spot them.

It would be nice if the matchmaking actually took honor into account, pairing dishonorable players only with like-minded players. That might create an entirely new brand of 'Elo Hell', though, since players coming in with neutral Honor wouldn't have the benefit of playing with high-Honor players. I'm curious to see what impact, if any, the system will have beyond a pure 'attaboy'.

Huh, I wonder if you get anything for having high, "honor."

Can't friends keep giving Honor to other friends in pre-made games? How do you prevent abuse cases?

It sounds like a fantastic idea if it works out though

Are there any methods to prevent abuse?

For example, what prevents teammates from giving Honor to each other after every game?

I understand that people will always find a way to abuse a system, but it would be interesting to see what Riot's solution is to simple abuse mechanics.

Actually, we have built-in a few measures to prevent trading and premade abuse.
