Riot reveals what honor rank you need for Season Rewards
Wondering what honor rank you need to earn yourself the end of season Rewards? Riot Games have just released an update on what you need to get your Season 8 borders and more.
As in the previous system, what you earn will depend on your honor rank, but this time around there’s a little more to it then that. There will also be more information released nearer to the end of the season, but for now, here’s what you need to know to remain eligible for your hard-earned goodies, courtesy of Riot Isto:
— You must be Honor level 2 or above to be eligible for Ranked end-of-season rewards. (We have made Honor progression a little easier to get up to Honor 2 to help you rank up!)
— MMR/Elo boosting or cheating will disqualify your account from Ranked & Honor rewards.
— If you have an erroneous or fraud-related ban, you’ll still be eligible for rewards.
That’s right, you’ll need to be Honor level 2 to even be able to receive a single reward for your Ranked play this season, so make sure you’re nice and not naughty in the last few months of Season 8.
In case you’re wondering, Riot also clarified how losing Honor works:
You’ll only drop your Honor level if you receive a penalty. A chat restriction knocks your Honor level to 1, or 0 if you’re already level 1. A two-week suspension will drop your level to 0, even if you were higher. In both cases, your Honor progress will be locked, making your account ineligible for Hextech Crafting rewards. Your Honor will unlock some time after your restriction as long as you’re showing signs of progress.
Last year, players were also made ineligible for Ranked rewards if they had an active ban or chat restriction at Season’s end, but it’s unclear if that same ruling will apply this time around.
For a refresher on the Honor system, check out this video (released in June last year, when Honor was first being added to the game).
That’s all for now until Riot releases more info. Until next time, good luck with your climb — and don’t forget to play nice!
