I recently started using mobafire because I belive i will enjoy the community and I want to make guides.
What I want to know is how does the % guide rating reflect your (or my) guide's success?

Also I'm, new here, but if you want to play some games, add me and we can do some. I play very casual norms of any mode.

The % rating is pretty much your guide's score, so it's very important for your guide's success.

The % rating is a summary of your guide's ratio of upvotes/downvotes.

It's basically just for people searching for a guide, to know which ones other players liked/thought were good.

How many % you have tells people how many people liked it and how many disliked. It purely depends on thumbs up/thumbs down and is there to show success of one guide. More % means better guide, simple as that.

Don't hate, it's too big a burden to bear.

No, lol. It means more people liked it (or are friends with the writer). There is a difference.

I didn't mean better guide by items and stuff. I meant bigger % means better guide on rankings. Better as more % you have, higher your guide will be.

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

I think they start at 50%. If someone upvotes you, the percentage goes up, if someone downvotes you it goes down. By what amount depends on what percent you have. So you got 6% from that upvote, but if you had already been at 90% you would have gotten like, 0.5% or something.
