Adds a bonus to your favor.

For every game you complete it gains % on goodwill.

For every game you leave it resets goodwill to 0%.

Basically it adds the multiplied amount of favor gained that match+ 0.xx depending on % of goodwill.

Is goodwill only for conquest? o: I won a few games on conquest, then I lost one on arena and then I won a couple on conquest. Even so my goodwill remained 100%, so iunno.

Goodwill has nothing to do with wins and losses. It's all about your in-game behavior.

If you play nice and obey the rules, you will maintain your 100% goodwill. But should you leave games or continually invoke toxic behavior, you will lose your goodwill.

Also, I actually do like the idea of requiring a goodwill minimum to play in ranked. It will discourage all of the people who continually dodge queues and ragequit just because they didn't like the team they got. I understand ranked matchmaking is a mess right now, but there is absolutely no reason to take it out on the players who wait patiently just to have a serious game.

Ah alright, that makes more sense. Having a higher percentage of goodwill = more favor, then?

I admittedly have only just started playing (And the closest thing to a MOBA that I've played before was SMNC), but I do like this idea. Because it would give me an incentive as a new player to try the Competitive instead of Casual matches, due to better odds of having a match where somebody doesn't Disconnect 5 minutes. Even if it won't do anything about the players who only stop being AFK to demand another surrender vote.

Getting a match where everyone stays the whole match, on BOTH teams, feels like it's going to be infinitely harder than "Getting Good".

It's definitely not leave-based, I was at 100% earlier, now at 13% for some reason and I didn't leave any...

It is leave based, but there were some bugs that made you loose it, also if you harras, or get to many repports :P
