and my suggestion is to limit the guides in "high elo" to atleast Gold 3+. Gold 5 can be acquired by literally anyone who has a bit of luck.

"High" and "low" is relative.

For bronze and silver, gold might be: Woah, I wanna get there!

But for diamond and platinum: Gold... Noobs

:P

If gold can help ppl, let them help, they are still better than 50% or more of the LoL community
Change is gooooood

This should be around 1650-1750.

Imo you should make it plat V: Most of plats now are the old mid-high golders.

Exhibit A.

I think this is true since Soloqueue seems to have gotten easier in season 3. In season 2 i couldnt get past 2050 but i went straight to 2250 in season 3. Most of the other platinum players i know are now Diamond or close to diamond.

I think many 1500s have under 40% understanding when it comes to game knowledge, though their mechanics seem to be descent.

Please do :X

http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/players?sort_type=lol_name&sort_order=&level_min=&level_max=&champion_id=&server=&elo_min=&elo_max=Diamond&name=&role=


There are six pages of ranked users on MobaFire (50 users per page). We don't suddenly have a huge influx of new users at gold level writing guides.

This is six pages of Bronze, Silver, Gold, Plat and Diamond. The sort by "elo tier" function doesn't work, unfortunately, so we can't really see how many Diamond and Plats we have, but at the moment, I honestly don't see why you'd limit high elo to Plat.

Yes, high elo is Plat. But this is a community site, where any guide is supposed to have a chance. Gold is an obtainable goal for many players, and it's nice to feel like you've achieved something with a MobaFire gold badge + your guides getting into the "high elo" category.

Perhaps adjusting the filter to only accept Gold I guides would be fine, but there would be complaints about people in Gold II wondering why only one tier, which isn't 10000x more skill, is allowed to be in high elo, but theirs isn't.

In two months time, someone will say, "Hey, Plat is too low, High Elo guides should only be Diamond."

And then half way through the year someone will say, "You know what, Plat is so easy to get coz of solo queue, I think only Diamond guides should be high elo."

The elo tier function works. You're forgetting to put in the "minimum ELO tier" and is left as any.

Perhaps we could make this player search more visible? I used it a few times ages ago and had no idea it had been updated.
