It seems a little restrictive on only allow MF:Prime members to receive commendations though


Anyone can give or receive commendations, they not restricted to prime members only. They are mostly separate systems with the exception that commendations get you some free prime.

Sorry you feel that way Lugi. I mentioned in my post but would like to reiterate (since I'm guessing this is what is putting a bad taste in your mouth) - we're focusing on features that would not be feasible for everybody due to the heavy load it would put on the servers. However, these features work well for a smaller group of people, which is why we chose these features for Prime.

Sorry for the confusion utopus. Anybody can give and receive commendations, you just get 1-2 free commendations if you buy 6 months or a year of Prime which is why it's on the Prime page.

We tried to clarify this in the purchase page (if you click Upgrade to Prime, you will see it) where you can see a check in the box to show that regular users can use Commendations.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

The intent is also to add some fun features not take away from what everyone already enjoys for free. In no way do we want to make MF a "pay site" and it NEVER will be. This is meant to be a way to help support the team of people working hard on MFN while enjoying some fun perks for your support.

We very much want this to be fun for those who wish to participate but do not want to take away from the experience that is MOBAFire for everyone. Everyone's feedback is highly encouraged!

So is commend like a mixture of +rep and a +scout? Can you only give 1 commendation per person or per work?

Will this commendation system also influence the guide ranking of the website? As if that would be true, people can in principle buy their way to the top, right?
Change is gooooood

It's not a per month system. The Prime / Commendation systems are pretty much separate except you get some bonus Commendations to give away depending on how many months of Prime you buy, and Commendations give users Prime. You can buy packs of Commendations at a discount if you plan on giving away more than one, and save them for the right time. :)

The only rules for Commendations is you can't Commend yourself. You can give however many Commendations to any person / work.

The Commendation system will not influence the guide ranking whatsoever, just provides a highlight in the listings. It will not move the guide up/down on the list.

the commend button at the bottom of every post looks out of place and annoying, should put it at the top beside +rep

@Thalia we felt that it made sense being at the bottom because in theory you would have read whatever you're commending before you decide to commend it, and not have to scroll back up. :)

We may alter its placement / prominence in the future, but we wanted to be sure people at least realize the option exists since it's a new feature.
