Honor Crest

Crest of Honor

Honor is player behavior system in League of Legends first introduced on October 1, 2012, and relaunched with patch V7.13. The Honor system is used to incentivize positive behavior among the League of Legends community by identifying and rewarding players who positively influence the gameplay experience of others in their games.

Honoring players

After the game ends, before entering the post game lobby, players are given 40 seconds to recognize another player in one of three categories. Players can only honor other players in matchmade games (including Co-op vs AI), and cannot honor themselves or opponents.

Honor Profile Layout

Your Honor level can be found on the bottom left of your profile. Note that only you can see your Honor level.

Stayed Cool

Tilt-proof, chill.

Stayed cool is the Honor meant for a teammate who stayed calm and was a provider of a positive playing experience.

Great Shotcalling

Leadership, strategy.

Great Shotcalling is the Honor meant for a teammate who had good leadership and was able to lead your team to a triumphant win or a gracious defeat.

GG <3

Team player, friendly.

GG <3 is the Honor meant for a teammate who was Honor worthy but didn't fit into a neat and tidy box of what they did to earn it.

Honor Progression

All players begin with honor level two. Individuals can advance to level five through receiving honors and playing the game, or demoted down to a floor of level zero if they receive punishments for behavior. Progression is not explicitly tied to an absolute number of honors received.

Honor rewards

Key fragments

Key Fragment

Originally dropping randomly after wins, Key fragments are now exclusive to Honor and used in Hextech Crafting. They will awarded randomly in the end of game screen or login.

Honor capsules

Honor Capsule

Starting at honor level three, players become eligible to receive Honor Capsules. Honor Capsules are distributed semi-randomly, with the likelihood to drop increasing each week and guaranteed to drop after two months. Once received, you cannot receive another for three weeks.

As with other capsules, Honor Capsules do not require a key to open. Honor Capsules may contain any of the following items:

  • Common: Key fragments
  • Common: Champion shards
  • Uncommon: Emotes
  • Rare: Honor-exclusive skins

The Honor-exclusive skins currently includes TwitchSquare Medieval Twitch [S|L] and WarwickSquare Grey Warwick [S|L], which are automatically added to your collection (unlike skin drops from other chests/capsules, which are usually added to your loot inventory). Receiving an Honor-exclusive skin will unlock the respective champion if you don't already own them.[1]

Loading screen flair

Level 3 Loading Screen Flair

Once hitting honor level three, player is eligible for temporary loading screen flairs. Unlock the flair by earning Honor from a teammate. If you receive two Honors from premade teammates, or just one from a non-premade teammate, you'll bring a loading screen flair to your next game. The flair lasts for one game. So shoot for a streak of honors to consistently keep your flair. As you move to levels four and five, your loading screen flair levels up with you.

End of Season Rewards

Just like Ranked, Honor grants exclusive rewards at season's end for those who put the work in. The renewed Honor will be a pillar for League of Legends long after you first get to play with it. Details on the rewards are to be announced later in the 2017 Season.

Honor Levels

Old Honor System

The old honor system allowed players to honor others in four categories, as well as opponents. Especially honorable individuals were recognized with a ribbon, and the top 10% of players in each category were given a summoner icon for their troubles.[2]
