First, i want to thank Riot team for the continuous effort to eliminate toxic behaviour
I also found "honorable opponent" the most rewarding and unbiased.
Reward & Punishment is the most common system used globally.
Honor system has already brought a positive changes, but is still lacking punishment reinforcements.
Honorable player --> rewards --> honor abuse/players spamming honor for the rewards
Toxic player --> disciplinary actions --> in my recent games, i still found many players using harsh words, feeding, dc in purpose etc because , IMO, they think they can get away easily or feel that the punishment is not hard enough for them.
Dr. Lyte, i would suggest a "dishonor button" next to "honor button" to simply let other players know that these toxic players are 'unfavored' players. Just like this very thread has thumb-up & thumb-down buttons.
While players might spam honor for the rewards, i think it would be unlikely for them to spam dishonor.
I'm a nice players, i don't think i need a reward for that. I just simply want to play this great game in an enjoyable and constructive environment
NB: this is my 1st online game ever, and i'm lovin' it! keep up the good work ^_^
