After 7 months (only five of playing, hiatus for school) of being honor level 0, I'm finally back out of the pit. Now, this is a big deal because I talked a decent amount with Riot's player support people on what I needed to do to climb. They told me to be honorable, so I did. I have to say, being banned was probably the best thing that has happened to me in League. It really slammed me in the face about what it means to play with honor, and how to treat other players. Also it was like, super rewarding when I got that notification for honor level 1. Here's to more honorable games (for everyone, not just me) in the future. GLHF!
