View Full Version : Shouldn't dishonorable kills be punished instead of rewarded?

So... I played for 2 days and I am very surprised that when you kill somebody or you get killed by 2 of 3 players at the same time the game doesn't punish you, you don't loose xp or something. I though that in a game called For Honor honor would be a priority instead of 3 japanese guys focusing.
Thoughts?

a kill is a kill and should be rewarded. Dishonorable kill already lose bonuses.
If they start to penalize dishonorable kill further, we may see the rise of a reverse strategy: Lose to win.
And food for thought from your truly: "only the dead think of honor".

Thanks for trying out FH! This is something that's been much discussed in the community, but the answer from our perspective is that we don't want to force players to play a particular style. It's fine to choose to play honorably, but to some players... a win is a win is a win.

There are players on the "practical" side who get frustrated at honorable players who refuse to help them in duels. So there's a few different sides to this discussion.

Dear God, here we go with thinking that because the title says "for honor" the battlefield is going to be littered with dozens of players reach engaged in a series of static 1v1 fights unto only 1 is left standing.
Maybe the player on the recording end of such a disadvantageous position should be deducted points because of stupidity? If you want an "honorable" fight, go play duels...

Haven't seen one of these posts in awhile.
There is no Honor in "For honor." Nor is there in any pvp game really.
People like to set rules for themselves as sort of some kind of code. But you can't expect others to follow it.

If I had to guess why the game has the title it does is because there is a whole fantasy behind the idea of a warrior. And that you're fighting for the honor of your people with these faction wars.
Plus people naturally look at duels and think it's a sport. Which irl it is. But on an actual battlefield not likely.

Currently the game rewards extra renown level for honorable fights. Honorable 1v1 bonuses, honorable 2v2 bonuses, etc. There's a huge renown bonus for anti ganking ask well.

The only time you'll see people actually follow a code of honor is in the 2v2 brawl mode, and only rarely in 4v4's (i mean extremely rare).

At the end of the day a kill is a kill, but it's actually beneficial in the beginning of games to let your teammate win a 1v1 if he's already winning rather than jumping in to gank. Your potentially taking away his renown bonus, and if you're playing the game to win you'll know that gaining high level feats early can make a difference.

Honor in life and honor on the battlefield are very different things. Strategy and tact are honorable. Traps, ambushes, and full army feints are all honorable as the strategists mind controls the stage. And like so a warriors ability to lure and make use of terrain is certainly not dis-honorable. Honor is defending ones allies.

Then honor has its place after the battle when its time to clean up the bodies and show respect to the fallen of both sides.

Dueling honor is a different and distinct type of honor.
