I've recently started doing battlegrounds, namely Strand of the Ancients. One thing that I can't figure out is how the honour totals are calculated at the end of each battle.I see people with less HK's getting more honour than me.At first I thought it had to do with them destroying vehicles and gates but again people who hadn't completed these objectives would be above me on the honour gains.So finally my question is how exactly are honour totals calculated in battlegrounds? I realise the answer is probably different for each one but a general rule would be helpful.

I haven't done Strand yet (shocking, i know), but anyway i'm a AV vet (altrec valley). You get HPs from things like capping a graveyard, or capping a tower. You don't get any honor if the opponent caps it back from you while it is still neutral. But yeah back in the day i would routinely try to cap towers, and often ended up with very high HP despite hardly killing anyone. Perhaps strand is the same way.Another thought is that it may have to do with total damage or total healing. I'm not sure at all, just throwing this out there.

Damage/Healing definitely is a contributing factor. I often find that on my priest, I get focused down in a large group rather quickly (particularly since I rarely PvP and have little gear for it)... but even though I'm dead/waiting for res while the battle is still raging and the HKs are tallying up for everyone but me, I'll get a really great honor total simply because of the crazy amounts of healing I did while I was tanking the Alliance. :)

Huh ok thanks guys that makes a alot of sense actually now that I think about it. My gear is shoddy and so I'm always lower on the list of damage dealt. I don't see any problem with awarding damage and healing. But maybe the weighting of it is a bit off? In one match I had destroyed 2 gates and 1 demolisher and there was still people above me who had more honour and less hit kills.I think it would be a good idea to put more onus on the objectives especially in Strand cos a lot of people just don't bother with the vehicles, bit I digress.Thanks again for the info. Oh and Rob you should definitely play SotA, it's good fast fun.
Calculated from [(Honorable Kills + Time Spent in Combat + Number of enemy players killed in their graveyard) * (Number of times shouting instructions in all caps + frequency of the word NOOB used in BG chat + seconds spent AFK while alt-tabbed) * (amount of time spent in proximity of 90% of the rest of your team + number of times ignoring objectives)] / (Combined number of DKs and Ret Pallies on your team)Or maybe that's just the way it seems on my battlegroup.
