League Of Legends Introducing Honor To The Field Of Battle!

So you’re out playing a match in LoL, and one of your teammates starts spouting out some BS about how the team sucks and how he’s not going to “win” the game for that team, and refuses to play. I think it goes without saying that that player is getting reported pretty damn quick, am I right? Well what about the good players? What about the ones that instead of calling his teammates “n00bs” he decides to help them out, give pointers, or even just be a good person? What can you do for somebody like that?

That’s the question that Riot is now answering. Coming soon to a patch in the near future will be the new Honor system, which is designed to help reward players for being a positive teammate. It’s a reporting system similar to the Tribunal, but instead of reporting players for actions detrimental to the team Honor is instead all about reporting players who helped brighten your day a bit, by doing something that made you feel good as a person.

It’s not sure how players reported by the Honor system will be rewarded at this time. If I had to guess, those players who show good sportsmanlike conduct will probably receive bonuses and/or titles of some sort. The only thing I have to worry about is the potential of abuse, but I have a feeling that Riot will be able to keep it under control!

    I think this is an amazing idea, but the community is so bad in league it won’t change a thing I play league daily and I ain’t going to lie playing that game with the people that surround me has turned me bitter, I get frustrated with people very easily and people don’t take friendly criticism well on that game you try give them pointers and they just start spouting out everything that is wrong with your own play and the majority of the players don’t know what they are talking about.

    Its been 2 years and 3 accounts and various breaks inbetween and I still havent found a group of players that I can frequently play with occasionally once every 200+ games I meet someone who is spot on, good player, good laugh and knows how to take defeat, but just for having a bit of a laugh in a normal game has lead to bans from the corrupt tribunal system that leaches a lot of the fun out of the game while the true trolls continue to flourish…Its not even the trolls I hate so much in league its the general attitude of its entire player base league just brings out the bad in EVERYONE. It brings you to the point of geek raging…we’ve all done it, its a very stressful game to play.
