Yo Professor Doctor Lyte!
Sorry if this has been answered before (Do not have time to go through all the Riot posts from this as well as other threads), but how do you feel about the rate at which Honor is being given out, both with friends and strangers?
I noticed that strangers rarely give out honor. I also noticed that when they do, it is in a pattern similar to reporting people. That is, people are more likely to honor when they win the game and tend to give it to teammates. Reporting is similar in that people are more likely to report when they lose and again it tends to be against their teammates.
I haven't changed my behaviour much after honor was implemented because I've always been "nice" (no insulting, generally positive, helpful when I need to be, etc.), so I'm somewhat certain it's not my behaviour that causes the lack of honor. I suppose I could go the extra cheesy route and say "gj" at everything, but that seems unnecessary.
