I'm really tired of the Mobafire team not fixing the rampant troll alt problem...and not even making it difficult or inconvenient to do.

Would it be so hard to not allow new members to vote (or at least not down vote) for the first month they are a member.

I'm so tired of the troll alts ruining my guide's scores that I'm about ready to leave the community after being a member for over a year now...

For instance, take a look at my Fiora guide that I recently posted.

Every down vote it has received was from a member with no guides of their own that have joined in the last couple weeks and have almost no other activity.

I'll tell you what is going on. The other members that have Fiora guides are making alts and down voting everyone else's to relatively bring their score up.

Is that really within the spirit of this community? Why are the admins letting this happen? At least put a few simple safe guards against this kind of thing!

There are lots of ways to fix this rampant issue...I hope the mobafire team applies one soon. I like this community but I am not going to idly stand by and suffer this injustice.
A tank that can't bring the hurt gets ignored.

First: Pipe down.

Second: For every "unjustified" (moreover: simply not commented) downvote there are also tons of phantom or "Just made an acc to tell how great this guide is" upvotes.

The only real thing you can do against that, is enabling all-time commentaries, but that should be discussed here multiple times already, though.

Third: Dont bother other ppl because your guide is not in the top 10.

honestly every other guide maker in this world is facing that problem.

it doesn't really matter that much, I mean sure, one troll vote lowers percent by 3 ish, but its not like mobafire could actually do what you suggested.

Think about it, alot of people make an account just to compliment a guide which they just tried out. who's to take away their priorities and make them wait a month?

1) Everybody gets down-voted.
2) You are not getting targeted.
3) We are not censoring new members out from the community.
4) Everyone are allowed to vote.
5) If you wanted to you could go and down-vote ALL the guides on MOBAFire, cause, well.. That's how MOBAFire works.
6) If you can't handle getting down-voted randomly, don't accept the random up-votes either.

Locked, moved, and done with. We are all tired of these threads. Please just follow our rules.
