Well, obviously I can't make completely legitimate downvotes without being troll-voted, so I think I have a few options:

Stop downvoting
Stop caring about my guide
Republish my guide (copy/paste coding and text, delete guide, repaste the coding/text into a new guide)

Or a combination of these.

So I guess I'd like your help deciding what to do about this.



Edit: hmm....... I have 20 votes, no matter how you look at it, so I couldn't have been trollvoted by a random person, and A Chubby Baby's +1 bar from when I asked him/her to review my guide is gone.... guess what that means! :D

But really dude, give a guy a chance, don't just down vote to protect your #1 position :(

I'm sorry if I have falsely accused you :{

At least I have the honor of getting the attention of a respected person on this site :D

If you have been heavily "troll voted" beyond recovery (less than 50% with your score), feel free to republish. Don't stop downvoting, we need people like you who aren't afraid of downvoting bad guides. I'd suggest not to downvote guides for champions you have a guide for yourself.

Trollvotes will always exist. All voters should keep doing what they`re doing. Even though they might revenge vote, go on an upvote spree, downvote spree, trollvote spree, downvote spree on other authors with the same champions, they must exist.

Yep. It's the reality of the internet.

So I started to copy/paste my guide into Microsoft Word...... let's just say I was surprised with its length:

72 pages (due to enters to create space in my guide)
10,495 words
61,386 characters without spaces
71,131 characters with spaces

Comment to vote forever is the best solution, but they stopped that, too bad...

If I republish my guide, I will lose all the POSITIVE ratings. Sometimes it seems people are too afraid to troll vote on comment to votes, so they make fake accounts with only 1 post, which is the downvote.
Thanks to Xiron and ProAsylum (Ignition) for the amazing signatures!
If I helped out with constructive criticsm, I would appreciate a +rep

I'd say live with it.

Even the TOP guides that we have on Mobafire currently has had a LOT of trollvotes, but still remain #1-5. Why? It's because they deserved to be there. Say your guide is good, right, but trollvotes should not be a reason, I mean *clear throat*, an EXCUSE, to explain why your guide is not at the top of the ladder.

TLDR: Your guide will only stand out if it is outstanding. Herp derp.

My guide was pretty heavily troll voted at first, as well. Republished it with some changes, and it's the number one guide. Recommended to boot. So it's possible to break out of the troll votes.

Comment to vote only makes people more afraid to comment because they can be anonymously downvoted by alternate accounts.

No Comment to vote is really the only way to truly remove these "troll counter-votes".
Tri lane for life.

fake accounts are also against Mobafire's rules.
