League of Legends players slam “misleading rewards” from the Honor System

League of Legends players are hitting out at the “misleading rewards” that come from the game’s Honor system, specifically with the key fragments that users are able to obtain through the program.

Many in the community are well-versed in the Honor system, Riot Games’s initiative to reward good sportsmanship from players as they complete more matches without being toxic or an overall hindrance on their team.

Rewards that come from the Honor system, after hitting Honor level 2 or above, can range from simple blue essence to a couple of pre-selected skins, but most notably are key fragments that can be in short supply for the most dedicated players in the game.

Players can get rewards by reaching at least Honor Level 2 in League of Legends.

Three fragments can be combined to create a whole key that is used to open Hextech Chests, but Riot puts a limit to how many fragments can be acquired per month.

However, the LoL community feels upended, since “Honor capsules and orbs are useless because the ‘extra’ key fragments are part of the monthly limit you get anyway,” as user ‘cute_rubberduck’ said.

“The key fragments you get through orbs and capsules count towards the 12 key fragment limit you get anyway through normal play,” they explained. “I’d like to add the disclaimer that I don’t want to complain about free stuff. They don’t have to give us anything. But I really dislike misleading rewards.”

Riot Games
Some LoL players would like another rework to allow for a more “honest” reward drop for the Honor system.

More community members chimed in to express their disappointment, especially since some people bank on key fragments to get through their troves of unopened chests.

While some are convinced that the Honor system rewards contributing to the fragment limit is a blunder on Riot’s part to fix, others believe that the system is working as intended.

“Honor ‘rewards’ is a way of punishing players by taking it away, not a reward system,” user ‘leigonlord’ argued.

Riot Games
Players are frequently hitting their Key fragment limit in LoL, which is making it hard to like the Honor rewards.

In either case, there are players with a large stockpile of chests without a way of opening them, since they’re getting hit by the key fragment limit that is affecting their rewards from the Honor system.

Riot has reworked the Honor system multiple times since it’s revival in 2017, and some players would like to see new upgrades in the 2020 season.

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
