When the honor system was instated, it was supposed to be far more impactful on the game than it is now. Well, Riot are looking to bring it back into the spotlight, and work on its toxicity problem.
Behavioral Systems shouldn't just be about punishing bad players, developers say, instead, they should also reward great ones. When Riot first released Honor 2.0 in 2018, it was the first rewards system of its kind, there was an incredible response from the entire player base. But, since then, they've failed to update it over the past few years and make full use of it, and it's fallen short of your expectations.
This year, RIot are upping the rewards with a new special recall VFX for players who are Honor 5 or have received an Honor from either a non-premade or two premades in their last game. Similar to the special Challenger recall, you’ll now have the opportunity to sport a special new Honor recall.
Furthermore, Riot are working hard on an exclusive skin dedicated just for players who reach Honor 5 as part of the End of Season rewards. These exclusive rewards will give you a new way to show off in-game, in addition to existing Honor skins, chromas, and other rewards. So now’s the time to get your Honor on! Stay tuned for more details.
These changes are meant for the vast majority of players that are not usually disruptive but can sometimes be. And with so many people playing League of Legends, even that statistic means that we are bound to run into someone txoic.
