Nice additions. Noticed a few typos: "your's" > "yours" and "Whats more" > "What's more".

An example for "Including Alternatives" could be: For example, if your team doesn't have any DoTs (damage of time abilities), and the enemy team has a Dr. Mundo or Vladimir, changing your standard summoners of Exhaust + Flash to Ignite + Flash will shut down those champions in a teamfight, as both rely on their self-healing abilities.

That's all I can think of, at the moment :P


would only work in draft mode tho

Thanks to TRUeLM, Plastictree, Scrax, Xiaowiriamu, foggy12, JahGFX, jhoijhoi, msrobinson, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, MissMaw, and me :) for the sigs!

I'll read it, but next time, don't post links to your guide. If you want your guide to be reviewed there is a thread for that. JhoiJhoi's Guide Review Thread . There are also forum rules about advertising guides, which I recommend you follow.

I think it's kinda sad that walls of texts stop people from reading.. Reading is a normal way to gain knowledge.. I don't get why it's that hard to read a wall of text, unless it's not relevant for the given subject.
People put tons of time in making great guides to help, so they deserve that people actually want to read what they write. I know it shouldn't be formatted all ****ty, but sometimes you just need a wall of text to explain something. ^^

^^ You'll find that people don't have enough time to go around reading guides that are longer than a short novel.

Stephen King said, "Kill your darlings." He wasn't referring to human beings, but your written art. Kill your darlings, cut down on those words. He said that if you have a novel of the length 10 000 words, 2 to 3k can be taken out without any lose to the novel.

And it's true.

Be ruthless.

Kill your darlings.

You are absolutely right, but it just doesn't bother me that much personally, if there is a wall of text now and then, sometimes it seems like some readers care just as much about the format as the actual content of a guide.

Perhaps I've just gotten accustomed with reading tons of walls of text from reading philosophy xD

I don't really mind a wall of text here, but it just discourages most people. Think about it, maybe you can find a break in the wall of text and add an image or even a video or some other stuff (Graphs for Searz).
