Summoners!

We here at Riot have been hard at work trying to improve player behavior in League of Legends. Historically, we’ve reacted to toxic players through systems like LeaverBuster and the Tribunal that are great at identifying and punishing the worst of worst. However, players will often challenge Team Player Behavior and say, “Dr. Lyte, how are you a doctor?? Don’t you know that positive reinforcement can also improve player behavior?” We agree with you! We know that we have a great community, but we haven’t done a great job providing tools to empower this community to proactively be even more awesome.

Today, we’d like to introduce Honor, our positive feedback initiative. We’re well versed in research done on concepts in psychology such as positive reinforcement and how it can improve behaviors, and we’ve also found that some of the most meaningful, memorable moments in League come from the positive interactions players have with each other. Everyone’s had one of these days: You are struggling in a game and find yourself in a situation where a teammate could have easily trolled or flamed you, but instead goes out of his way to be a helpful, compassionate team-player. He says, “Hey, don’t worry about the first blood.” You may not friend this player or ever play with him again, but this small, kind gesture made a difference and is something you remembered.

Through Honor you’ll be able to give something lasting back to those players who went out of their way to make your game experience better. Keep an eye out for Honor with the next PBE update, and expect to hear more about it in an upcoming patch!

TL;DR - LoL is getting +rep! :D

I think if they put some incentives in this will be a good idea, otherwise not many people will care about their honor points. At the very least people who are already good will be rewarded for being good. People who are on the edge might get pulled to the good side with some incentives though. ;) Reading through the red posts they aren't saying if there's any plans for rewards, just announcing the idea.

However, they have already said they are going to be harsh if people try to abuse the system. For example, premade friends always +honor'ing eachother. Their accounts will be flagged and investigated.
Thanks to Minho for my sig!

Wouldn't be suprised if you were only able to +rep players from the enemy team :)
Either that, or you can't +rep people whom you are premade with.

The way that they were talking about it it will pretty much flag moderators if you +honor people you are queued with multiple times or something like that, and there will be severe consequences if you appear to be abusing the system. They did say that it was allowed but that you should keep in mind that your friends would've had to do something legitimately honor worthy because you will be under close scrutiny if you +honor your friends.

I think they should leave the +honoring to either the enemy team or to randoms on either team, since there's no doubt that people will attempt to be descrete, but they will still +honor their friends more so than they would +honor an enemy or even a random player.
