Even though the new Honor has been introduced recently, we are already seeing some changes that are meant to improve the player's experience and award them.
So, what’s new?
There are now three checkpoints in between each Honor level. For every checkpoint after level 2, you’re guaranteed a reward to celebrate your progress. Checkpoints stop at Honor level 5 (because there’s no level 6), but you’ll still get rewards at the same intervals.
Your Honor level resets at season start to a checkpoint between levels 2 and 3. Players who finished at levels 3, 4, and 5 earn a small boost depending on their level.
Level 5 ⇒ Level 2, checkpoint 3
Level 4 ⇒ Level 2, checkpoint 2
Level 3 ⇒ Level 2, checkpoint 1
Level 2 ⇒ Level 2, no checkpoints
Level 1 and below do not reset
New keyless Honor Orbs drop at every checkpoint past level 3 and keep coming after Honor level 5. Honor Capsules now drop when you reach levels 3, 4, and 5. That means you’ll get fewer Capsules than before, but they’ll contain the most exclusive rewards. Orbs and Capsules give you better rewards with every level up. Here’s what you’ll earn every time you level up or reach a checkpoint.
LEVEL UP: 1 Key
LEVEL UP: 1 Key
CHECKPOINT: 2 Key fragments
LEVEL UP: Level 3 Capsule containing 3 Key fragments, a ward skin, and 300 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard
CHECKPOINT: Level 3 Orb containing 2 Key fragments and 150 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard
LEVEL UP: Level 4 Capsule containing 4 Key fragments, an emote, and 630 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard
CHECKPOINT: Level 4 Orb containing 2 Key fragments and 200 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard
LEVEL UP: Level 5 Capsule containing 5 Key fragments, Grey Warwick or Medieval Twitch, and 960 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard. If both skins are owned, you’re guaranteed an emote or ward skin instead.
CHECKPOINT: Level 5 Orb containing 3 Key fragments and 250 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard
What is the Honor Ceremony
After a Nexus is destroyed, you can vote for one teammate who stood out and fought with honor through a win or loss. Choose the category that describes their honourable style and makes their day.
You can choose from “Stayed Cool”, “Great Shotcalling” and “GG <3”.
You’ll see which honours you earned at the end-of-game screen. If you’re the most honoured member of your team, everyone will see it. At level 3 and above, honours from two premade teammates unlock loading screen flair in your next game. At level 3 and above, an honour from a non-premade teammate unlocks loading screen flair in your next game.
