Good work Lyte, to you, and to everyone who made this system possible. It's great to see your hard work is paying off so quickly.

So are we not supposed to use honor on people we play with ever? Even if they are honorable or something? I have noticed people are much better with their attitudes after, so I like it, but I don't want to be punished for playing with friends and giving them honor for being helpful?? I guess we just get less honor if we play with our friends?

Good work. I have a question though : besides reporting, what can a player do when witnessing two people trading honor? I've seen it happen once, in a game where those premades were also terrible and kept flaming. It was very frustrating to think they would be getting honor...

Make honor build up to skins, maybe a special honor skin for each champion? Helps get people paid up at riot and makes people want to act like a better person in game!

One of the major concerns we took into account when designing Honor was abuse – it’s obvious this was a concern some of you shared: “Dr. Lyte, people are going to trade Honor! This is going to be meaningless!” Rest assured, Riot has spent a lot of extra time implementing anti-abuse features into the Honor Initiative. We tasked nearly half a dozen PhDs and statisticians to this problem and let them tinker with models for weeks. What did they come up with, and what’s going on in the background?

  • Pattern recognition: Honor was designed to recognize patterns. For example, Honorable players who are true positive should not be reported very often.
    • As an example, the system caught a player who was reported in 100% of his games after Honor launched, but he also got Honor in nearly every game. This obvious trader was caught.
  • Social interactions: Honor was designed to analyze interactions between players. For example, the system analyzes the players who are Honoring you and the players you give Honor to in an effort to determine the quality of these exchanges.
    • In another example, the system caught a player who received 100% of his Honor from a premade friend. Both the giver and the recipient were also toxic players and both were punished for this behavior.
  • Honor values: As mentioned above, Honor assesses the value of your exchanges. Receiving Honor from a stranger you’ve never played with before is valued more than Honor from a player who has played with you 100 times and Honored you multiple times. Design decisions like this were made to encourage players to be positive across a large number of games with a large variety of people—in fact, for the min-maxers, this is the optimal way to earn Honor.

So far, these abuse-prevention measures we built in have been highly effective:

  • Only 0.21% of players reported for consistent trading
  • 0.63% of players actively trying to trade Honor
  • 0.01% spamming Honor for dishonorable reasons

These players have all had their Honor reset to zero.

It is not that it is working, it just that ALOT of people do not care for honor

It's really nice to be able to "Report" someone for something other than being a jerk. This system, even just as a point of pride system as it currently stands, is realistically a great way for the community to "police it's own". There are a lot of players who are just inherently nice people...regardless of whether or not they are losing or if someone else on the team is feeding or whatever the case may be. I think that this will grow into a truly positive incentive for the trolls as well. I for one am excited to see what comes of all this. Thanks Riot! You just keep getting better!
