It's really upsetting me that the #1 Shaco guide which is beating mine is full of completely outdated information.

Interesting.
I thought Matt had fixed the guide freshness issues.

Guess something else has been borked.


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

It seems like it's been stale for a bit over a month.

The "Stale" feature is for 6 - 8 patches. There is approximately a patch every 1 - 2 weeks. Thus, it probably hasn't expired yet, considering that there haven't been a ton of patches within the last 6 or so weeks.

Just bide your time, it will probably expire soon. Basically, the "Ideal", "Fresh", "Stale", and "Expired" ratings are by patch, and not by time. If Riot only releases 3 or 4 patches within 6 weeks, that's what's taken into account; not the time.

If I helped you, click that +rep!

Just wanted to update on this. We've added a tool that will allow Editors to help us maintain our database of patches. This database is what is checked against for tracking staleness, and it has sometimes fallen behind on updates in the past. With this new tool and some Editor assistance it will stay much more up to date and stale guides will fade away that much sooner :)

Nothing has changed with the freshness system. It is as it always was. Just that the database of patches was sometimes behind. Now with the tool open, we will have more eyes and hands on it to make sure it stays up to date, ensuring that guides are marked stale as expected, when expected.

We didn't adjust the rate at which guides go stale though.
