STATUS:

OFFLINE



Introduction:

Hello, everyone, I've decided to start reviewing guides because I generally enjoy reading them and seeing new ideas. I myself have had a few popular guides (I kinda miss my Darius guide. I used to be a contender! D:) and enjoy helping people with things League-related, via my guides, or via comments on others' guides.



How this works:

You submit your review application. I read it over and try it out. (I refuse to do a review until I've tried the guide in question, as written) I give you my review.

My scoring is based on how well the guide is written, how much I enjoyed reading it or playing it, and completeness of information. Any thing I see that is missing, or needs changed will be in my review.

I will give you a single score of 1 to 10. Scores above 8 will receive an up-vote and +rep. Scores of 6-7, will receive no vote, but they will be given +rep for the effort. Scores below 6 will receive a down-vote.

Because I will have to play a game with the champion, avoid sending me guides about the following; Brand, Caitlyn, Kog'Maw, Maokai, Trundle, and Vayne. I own every champion besides those six.

The review will be posted on this thread, not on the guide.


Rules:

Your guide must be in English. No exceptions.

You must have read jhoijhoi's guide to making a guide.

The champion in the guide must have been released over a month ago. By then, general strategies should have been created for them. I don't wanna get swarmed with Kha'Zix guides.

You must have at least 75 posts on MOBAFire.



What I look for in a guide:

I look for innovation in build and theory. I hate standard cookie cutter builds, and you won't get points for giving me the "best" build, especially if the explanation for using it is "All the 2k+ elo players use this." I really like experimental builds you don't see often, as long as you have valid reasons for using it. Plus, I'm actually going to play this out; don't tell me to play tank Evelynn, that isn't an innovative build, it's trolling, and telling me to build Ashe with Infinity Edge, Phantom Dancer, Last Whisper etc; is boring as hell.

Completeness of information is key, whether it being beginner tactics to advanced tricks. Skill range varies greatly for the people use MOBAFire for guides, and you should at least try to accommodate both new and veteran players.

I like valid reasons for everything, but nothing too technical. Math-crafting is obnoxious and I don't bother reading it if I see giant formulas everywhere. Keep it readable for the average player.

I do not rate guides on appearance, however wall of text guides will lose points because I, like many people who will read it, have extreme ADD and long bricks of text hurt my eyes. A little coding is great.



What I expect in return:

+rep for my review.

Check out my new Draven guide and tell me what you think. (It's in my signature)

Optional!: Try out my guide.

Getting right on these, be aware that the order I do the reviews in is basically what ever champion I get to use first, so the Sona guide will be done first most likely. Everyone has a ******* for top lane and jungle, I never get to play them. D:
