On March 4th, 2019 I got my first (and hopefully only!) chat restriction from flaming a troll who admitted to throwing one of the games that determined if I would demote or not.
Yesterday on May 9th I finally got back to Honor 2!
I understand 2 months isn't really a long time, but it felt like a huge grind to me. Those who say they're bordering 6+ months and still not making honor progress are likely just continuing to be toxic in games... Not toxic enough for a punishment, but toxic enough so their honor progression is halted.
Hopefully I can make it to Honor 5 by the end of the year. c: Two months ago when asked a Rioter told me that it was possible since I got punished so early in the season so hopefully good behavior will continue and I will hit Honor 5!
