Should I publish my guide even though I have not yet finished the Match Ups chapter?
Yes. Just continue to work on it after your guide is published.
No. Go finish it then publish the guide you lazy bum!

^title.
I am currently working on my first guide and it's taking so long! I dunno if I'm overdoing or what lol.
It's been about a week, since I've started the guide. Working on it for about 4 hours total or more a day. Constantly reviewing it for mistakes, thinking of what to write, experimenting with format, etc.

Also, would you publish your guide even though its Match Ups chapter is unfinished? Or would you finish the Match Ups before publishing it?

Currently I have my Match Ups section "started", I still got like 30 more champs to talk about. I am tempted to publish the guide, but........ idk
I still have one other section to finish up though.

Answer the poll please. I would appreciate it~
My first self made sig ^_^
Care to check out my Mordekaiser guide? I'd appreciate it :D

Matchups can wait. Get the rest done first.

If it's top or mid lane, you should probably put a few common/fotm match ups in there, or at least particularly difficult ones. That's probably the information that people will be looking for if they're looking at match ups in a guide.

Only present the most interesting matchups instead of every possible one. No one reads them all and it requires less maintainance.

I think it's fine IF ALL THE CORE PARTS ARE REPRESENTED ALRDY!
Essentially, the Matchups section is long because of sheer mass...

I think my Yorick guide took my a good 4-5 days of 3 hours work every day. Still working on it every day.

I gotta admit, I am very lazy :P

My first guide took about 3 hours max, maybe a small update of 5min here and there.
Though I did not do a lot for it, my guide was very very popular.

Now it is an okay guide I guess, but all my guides were just made within 3 hours max :P

I also have a lot of expierence with writing reports and stuff though, that surely helped me a lot.
Change is gooooood

My first guide, since I didn't know a thing at all about BB Coding, and just typed down bad stuff, probably only took me 2 hours and a half O.o
Didn't update it because I was ashamed of it, and I just archived it for motivation xD
I think finishing at least the common/hard match ups would be good, as astrolia said.


+rep me if you think I did something cool enough to deserve it!
