Seriously I've heard them on the main forums denounce Mobafire easily, saying the guides suck and everything compared to Solomid, another good guide site. Am I missing something here? Several of these guides have helped me play some of the characters I own a lot better. Can anyone give me a reason why there's less love for Mobafire?

Pros usually support Solomid since it's a website run by Team Solomid, and a lot of pro players contribute guides there. Most the pros say that Mobafire sucks/is for noobs whenever it's brought up (probably because they think their guides are better / they want their website to look better) so all the pros followers (which is a lot) say mobafire sucks too, and so on and so forth. Basically the sheep effect from the pro players contributes a lot to mobafire's bad image.

It's also because since ANYONE can make a guide and get to the top occasionally there will be bad or unconventional guides at the top, and people will use them as examples to say why mobafire's bad.

Mobafire is different from Solomid because everybody can participate and have a chance to get their guide out to people. This is why I like it. Mobafire is more of a "for the people" site and Solomid is run by a jury of pro players making a very small group of people control the site. Here everybody can contribute. However, because of the pro player jury their guides have pretty good quality control for the featured ones.

They are just different... But I think that's it in a nutshell, lol.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

It's pretty much that.

Also, we don't have high elo people filtering through our guides to ensure that the top of the top are there. Also, if it's not used by the pros, it's usually disregarded in terms of viability.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Pretty much what Mowen said, whenever someone's favorite Pro says something is bad, most will just accept and agree instead of taking the time to try it out. Sadly most Pros have this beef with MOBAFire that I never understood.

We've had a few pro's write guides here. CLG half-***ed their guides i want to say a year or two ago. It was honestly the most pathetic attempt at ever making a guide. Now we have Team EZ, and frankly they're about as pro as you or me

Yes I read things about mobafire being worse than the others in the LoL forums. I was a bit surprised that people don't like this site, which I fpund great and used every time.

So i checked out the other ones and f.e. I looked up some guides on my main champs on solomid.
I really disliked the visual style, but maybe just because I got used to mobafire.

In the end I don't know for sure why some dislike mobafire, maybe because of what Mowen said, but as for me I like this site the most, for the visual appereance as well as for the guides themselves, since some of the pro guides on SM weren't even that good.
