First, I just want to say that I'm very excited about this coming feature, as I hope it will improve the overall community attitude and maybe even the LoL community's reputation (which isn't the greatest, to be honest). Second, I want to give you a high-five for all the work you've put into this thread, Lyte, you deserve it. Third, I have one question that is probably inconsequential, but I thought of it while reading through your posts. Here it is:
In the current Honor system that you (and others!) have designed, is there any functional difference between honoring someone before you add them as a friend, or honoring them after they are already on your friends list? The reason I ask is this: suppose I just played a game with player X, we got along really well, and I want to add X to my friends list so we can play more games together. Should I honor him before or after he is added to my list? Moreover, if there is a difference, could you tell us which action would be more beneficial?
Edit: FYI, I know that in the long run this point is rather negligible, but I love knowing just how things work.
