Comment (by Marc4):

 "Copy pattern" includes those who try, but perhaps later reject the
 pattern because they don't end up liking/being useful.
 "Favorite" can include those who like the pattern and want to have it
 accessible to use that pattern in other installations and those who may
 like it visually, but mark it as a favorite to try it later.

 Another option would be to take an average of "Favorite" and "Copy
 pattern", which would be a numerical result that would not be public, to
 avoid the game you are talking about.

 Anyway, at first glance, the incentive to play with the "Copy pattern"
 button would be the same as the one that currently exists to mark it as a
 Favorite, wouldn't it? If it already exists, or not, we would not be
 creating that incentive again with this, right?

 Replying to [comment:2 dufresnesteven]:
 > Patterns don't give us stats the same way plugins and themes do. We do
 have a favorite count, but I'm not certain that would be a useful
 indicator. On wp.org, we could also leverage the "Copy pattern" action,
 although it would need modification to prevent gaming.
 > I do agree that surfacing the higher quality patterns is a problem that
 needs solving and this would likely be part of that solution. WP.org is
 half of the playing surface, Gutenberg could also have a role to play.
