    Default Honor player

    Hello,

    Today in level 65 chat i saw someone suggesting Honor player system which sounds like a good idea. Imagine you played really good but been tossed into losing streak, other players can value your good play by honoring you after battle. At least is something to make you feel better. Not that isn't obvious when you are carrying your teammates, but it would be additional stimulant to play better.

    It's a good thought, but players are selfish. It'll become a "I'll commend you for your effort if you commend me" system. Or a "looking for players to queue with, will give honor".

    In essence, is this a system to get points for someone giving you props?

    Man, people need a reward for a gg now.


    Soon there's going to be a reward just for logging into the gam....

    Oh wait.

    SWTOR has a MVP system at the end of its warfronts, awarding a few extra tokens.
    you don't get to see if you've been MVPed for or who others have awared MVP for until after you have selected who you think is the MVP (you cant vote for yourself).

    it isn't too bad, though it is "exploited" by premades, who award their MVPs amongst themselves.
    pugs mostly vote for whoever has the highest healing score.
    however, if you are seen to perform exceptionally, or do something noteworthy, you'll get the MVPs.

    if Rift were to have such a system, awarding even just one Abyssal Crusaders Mark per MVP, you might see healers becoming a more popular choice. you might also see wardens becoming the most popular healers too, lol.

    imo, it would be worth it, even with the premades giving it to themselves.

    Or the game itself decides who the MVP is based on the overall performance (most captured/defended points, kills, saves, assists, healing done, etc.) and awards some extra currency? That would be neat!

    Well, thus far, the "system" hasn't been too good at making decisions. Although it might get players a bit more objective oriented. But, like Kronos said, might push more to stack healing (total healing done is a lot easier to accomplish than capturing/defending points for most).

    Yeah I can see it would be a bit too hard to properly balance and tweak enough to know /who/ exactly is the real MVP of the match... than some abuser 'exploiting' the system to get the rewards... but it is a dream that would be so cool to see as a reality lol.

    Tbh any reward will make the system exploitable like you said. Or the reward shouldn't be based per single battle at least. But yeah i agree the healers will be most honored per single match and they should be.

    Actually maybe you could just pay healers. Wasn't that the EQ model? One AC for that sweet water down by the river?

    if the reward was a single ACM per MVP, with 15 potential MVPs per match (many players would leave without allocating their MVP) I don't think premades "exploiting" the MVP would be a huge factor.
    it would happen, but the rewards wouldn't be big enough to matter much.

    it's not trolling when it's true. And you only vote if you win. You would never win in your bad specs tho

    We could have forum MVP rewards too. Grant extra marks for every, say 10 mentions on the forums how awesome you are and for every 10 mentions how someone else is terrible.

    I say give 3 plat for every 10 steps your toon takes in a WF. We need to flourish these rewards guys. We need to bury WF's in rewards so we forget that they are most of the time utterly undesirable.
