You are considered Dishonorable because you've repeatedly abandoned your team during rated PvP matches. You may not participate in PvP until this effect expires.
— In-game description
- Queue Dodge (3 stacks) — Failing to accept a match queue prompt.
- Abandon (10 stacks) — Leaving a match. Relogging, or changing characters during a match does not grant dishonorable, with some exceptions.
- Being kicked by AFK detection automatically.
- Being absent from a match when the match has ended.
- Match Manipulation (1000 stacks) Repeatedly win trading in high ranked matches.
- Buying Win Service in Tournament (permanent) Recruiting the services of another player to play on one's account for a monthly tournament.
- Each time an account gains dishonor, the player will receive a timeout period that prevents the player from joining Unranked and Ranked Arenas in structured PvP.
- It is possible to have stacks of dishonor without having an active timeout because dishonor decays at a much slower rate
- Timeout periods increase exponentially based on how many stacks are currently on the account
- Stacks expire while offline
- Players are not prevented from joining Custom Arenas in structured PvP, World versus World, or playing PvE content
- Dishonor is considered in the PvP Matchmaking Algorithm by preferring to place players with other players that also have dishonor.
- Customer Support is not able to remove dishonor stacks or reduce the time that someone is prevented from joining rated games.
- Dishonor was originally added in the August 6, 2013 game update. The maximum amount of dishonor was changed from 5 stacks to 3 later, to better address the issue of voluntary match abandonment.
- Dishonor was updated in the December 2, 2014 game update.
