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.[1]


  • 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 off-line
    • 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.
