You point out that MMR not your previous rank helps determin where you get placed, yet MMR is an invisible value that we have no option to see. If it was just possible to have people see “Gold 4, 1250mmr” people wouldn’t be so quick to say “matchmaking is broken” they could actually keep track of the trends. When playing ranks hurts them more than helps etc.
I dont see why we cant get the 2.1 and 2.2 rewards as well as the rest of the rewards earlier lol
About Grey Warwick/Medieval Twitch, can we choose which skin we'll get? Or is the drop rate influenced by how much we actually play those champions? Or is just just straight 50% chance? Warwick is my go to Jungler, Grey Warwick is propably my favourite skin in League and I really don't care much for Twitch or that skin :P
I know how you feel my man, I got Medieval Twitch by pure luck last year and while I do feel extremely fortunate to get one of those skins, I have no interest in Twitch. Luckily I can get my boi Warwick this year, I doubt they'll let you pick even though they should make like a crafting material so you can get which one you want.
Why do all the people who got honor 5 last season have to miss out on 2.1 and 2.2 though? Its like riot is punishing us for being sportsmanlike or something. I understand we will get to honor 5 quicker, but can we at least get the rewards from 2.1 and 2.2?
Well the rewards get better the further up the honour system you go. So if you start at honour level 2, checkpoint 3, technically you'd get the better rewards sooner.
Divinus has the right idea here. The rewards do get better as the ranks go up, and the orbs you get at checkpoints generally only have 2 key fragments and a small amount of BE. If you were at the lowest level, you'd get those better rewards a little slower. There was also a really good discussion going on in the PBE forums when this was being tested earlier on! https://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback/HIZAeknK-honor-season-2018-on-pbe?comment=00140000
AFAIK the skin you get is just completely random, though it'd be kinda neat if it *were* influenced by who you played.
We started more honorable people a little higher so they essentially get the better rewards faster since they were able to remain honorable. The checkpoint rewards at 2.1/2.2 would give you 2 key fragments, which you also get at rank 3 checkpoints and on, so you're getting better rewards quicker by starting at 2.3!
> Is it possible to get both the Medieval Twitch and Grey Warwick skins this season, since we only get the one Level 5 capsule with those skins? No, it is not possible to get both in a single season, you will receive one or the other. The trade off is the guarantee of at least one, which was not present last season. Previously you were not guaranteed to earn either of these skins, but this year you are guaranteed to earn at least one in your level 5 honor capsule. Does this rule starts with the 8.1 patch or with honor reset? I got the Twitch skin last Sunday (I was level 5 and it's in the 8.1 patch but before the honor reset), so I'm not sure if I got allready the honor skin for season 8.
Great "possible" reward for those who got to honor 5, really feeling my sense of pride and accomplishment...
Pretty sad that my Twitch and WW skins have no sentimental value anymore. I got them through the friend referral system and now anyone can "earn" them just by playing.
The wording was "possibility" of a reward as it depends on mostly random people giving you commends to level up. If you look at it from the fact of player A starting at 2.3 and player B starting at 2.0 and compare the rewards both get by the time they reach honor 5 then player B will have 6 key frags extra. Can you please explain how that's a reward for player A other than **maybe** being able to get to honor 5 quicker.
Won 10 games 0 defeats - placed in Silver 2. Was Diamond 5 last season. ?
AFAIK once you hit honor level 5 there will be infinite checkpoints after honor level 5 that give the best "checkpoint" rewards, so player A will get to those rewards faster.
You were Diamond in Flex. You were Bronze in Solo. Flex queue and solo queue have different MMR's. Your placement is based off your MMR, which is why you were placed in Silver for Solo.
Thanks for repeating above but that's not what we're talking about here, if you look at just getting to honor 5 then the pip bumped player is getting less rewards. **Also it doesn't guarantee that the pip bumped player will get to those _better _ rewards quicker** as it's all based on people honoring you so the player who didn't get to honor 5 last season could still get there quicker. Meaning the people who skipped those 3 pips missed out on the 6 frags.
You continue to get rewards even after Lv5. That means that player A will have *more* key frags, since at the time that player B gets his rewards from the last checkpoints to level 5, player A gets Level 5 rewards, which are better.
> **mattymaats \(EUW\) said:** Thanks for repeating above but that's not what we're talking about here, if you look at just getting to honor 5 then the pip bumped player is getting less rewards. If you start at a lower level, you get more rewards till reach level 5, thats right. But you need more games to get this goal. For example: - start at level 2.0: you need around 400 games till level 5 - start at level 2.3 you need around 350 games till level 5, but you get 3 rewards less than at start at level 2.0 But you have to compare whart a player gets with the same effort (games played). - with 350 games played: With start at level 2.3 the player gets the level 5 reward. With start at level 2.0 the player is only on level 4 and don't get the level 5 reward. - with 400 games played: Both players get the same amount of rewards and are on level 5. But the player which starts at level 2.3 gets the better rewards (3 additional rewards on level 5 -> the other player gets 3 rewards at level 2 only instead) So with the same effort the player gets always the better rewards if he starts on a higer level. **Also it doesn't guarantee that the pip bumped player will get to those _better _ rewards quicker** as it's all based on people honoring you so the player who didn't get to honor 5 last season could still get there quicker. Meaning the people who skipped those 3 pips missed out on the 6 frags. But the chance to get the level 5 reward earlier is higher if you start at a higher level. And after several hundert games it's not really material which mates a player has ingame. After a lot of games it's more important how to act with the mates than what mates a player has.
