Can we use honor for "threatening" other player?

for example, player 1 do not seem like he will behave properly.
player 2 say: hey, if you try and make an effort to be nicer, ill give you honor point !
I believe that if he did make a real effort to improve this one game, maybe he would merit it.
is it alright?

This might be flawed, because people can Penta Queue or any queue with their friends, and they get bonus IP.

I will neither confirm nor deny the magic that Team Player Behavior can do. Credit to the team, they're the ones that make my designs happen.

And last concern, but not least.

There's already a big enough problem in games of people saying "Report player X", generally after player X has died a few times, or has the audacity to not gank and ungankable lane.

Do you not think it's possible that this will change into "Report player X and I'll give you honour"? I cannot see any way in which you'd prevent that, unless you're implementing something using chat logs, but I'm not even sure that would be realistically possible.

tl;dr, this is likely to increase the amount of report request spamming, which is the thing that I personally most find "toxic" to the game.

The only way to obtain honor is by receiving from other players? Is everyone starting at 0 Honor Points?

Yes, everyone starts with a blank slate. Prior Tribunal histories or bans won't affect your Honor gains; however, being toxic will indeed hurt your Honor post-launch.

Will there be an honor ladder?
