Tweaks to the Honor Initiative

When we launched the Honor Initiative we saw an immediate drop in reports. We’re happy with the results to date, and want to talk about some changes we’ve made that affect the way players earn crests. Before we get into these, we’d like to share some pretty interesting stats that helped influence our decisions:

  • 73% of Honor is awarded to players you’ve never played with before
  • Currently, about 1% of players have unlocked the Great Teamwork, Leader or Mentor crests, and 16% of players have unlocked the Honorable Opponent crest
  • There’s a 71% chance that a game will be positive if you meet a player who’s unlocked the Great Teammate crest and an 80% chance if they’ve unlocked the Great Leader crest

Based on these observations, we believe it’s a bit too difficult to earn a “Great” crest and too easy to earn Honorable Opponent. Although players who earn Honorable Opponent are generally more positive than those without crests, the numbers suggest that they haven’t been as positively impactful as those players with the other crests. With that in mind, we’ve made a few changes to the Honor Initiative:

  • We’ve reduced the threshold for unlocking the Great Teamwork, Leader and Mentor crests, making them slightly easier to obtain
    • Some players will be granted new crests, since they’ll now qualify under the new criteria
  • We’ve increased the threshold required to unlock the Honorable Opponent crest, making it more difficult to obtain
    • Players who don’t meet the new criteria for this crest will have to regain it

We’ll continue to iterate on the Honor Initiative as necessary, and then start working on the next phase of the feature.

And what about those who lost rare ribbons only because people stopped caring giving honor points after few weeks?


Edit: I got back green ribbon on my main account (Stavorsky), so I'm satisfied with this!
I hope it will be permanent this time.
Edit2: Also, it doesn't matter how much honor points you have. I obtained red, then green one, both at ~20-25 points.

i think it's harder to obtain honorable oponnent than teamwork, if you dominating the game, teammates often give everyone +1 team, rarely enemies giving +honor oponnent when you stomp them.

This is my thought, I have had people praise me in the majority of my games, whether thats opponents or team mates. Well done skarner, nice work, great teamplay, thanks for the save etc etc.
Yet none of them usually give me honour... it just doesnt count for anything to the vast majority of people.

I got great teamwork yesterday. (Yay) I think the ability to choose which ribbon you would like to be displayed, or better yet, displaying all ribbons at once (in different corners) would be awesome

I'm glad to see more is being done about the honour initiative but i'm more concerned about the servers.

MEANWHILE!
Servers crash and ruin games... Think we are more concerned about that than honor to be honest.
