INTRODUCTION



So, I decided to start a review shop. Yay. But, I wanted to add something extra special for it to stand out among its peers. That thing would be the Matchup Shop. Long story short, I found that I have a certain talent for matchups, and want to put them to use. So, for people who need reviews or matchup sections for their guides, this thingumajig is open!

WTF IS THIS THING



Since this thread has two parts, a review shop and a matchup shop, I will explain each one separately.

A review shop is a place where you submit your guide for a review, and the guy running the shop, well, reviews it. How exactly does he do that varies, but a review is a review.

A matchup shop is a place where you submit your guide because you want someone to do a matchup section for it, and you are either too lazy, or you are not good at writing those.

WHY MAKE A MATCHUP SHOP?



You see, I found out that I am a quite good armchair tactician, being able to think up of tons of different strategies, beut never apply them in the game as effectively as I would like to. A thing I found out I am exceptionally good at is countering champions. Give me a champion, an enemy champion, and I will be able to think up of a strategy to counter said enemy champion even if I never played either of those. There is another thing: Matchup sections take time. Some people are just too lazy or don't have the time to do them. I tend to have quite a lot of time at my diposal. You see how those two come together? You should.

OK, WHY MAKE A REVIEW SHOP?



Because you can never have enough of those. Seriously, the more people offer themselves to the guide writers of Mobafire, the better. Besides, I believe I give out fairly constructive reviews.

SO, HOW DOES THIS THING WORK?



It's simple, really. Just fill out one of these forms and either PM me with the filled form, post in on this very forum thread, or both, if you REALLY want to make sure.

FOR REVIEWS:
Summoner Level:
Link to the guide:
Have you read the guide to making a guide?:
Have I reviewed your guide before?:
Anything specific you want reviewed, and if so, what?:
Anything I should know?:

FOR MATCHUPS
Link to the guide (if you are working on it, publish it, then archive it):
What lane do you want matchups for?:
Any specific champions you want matchups for?:
Anything else I should know?

After you do this, I will do the thing you requested. For reviews, it will take up to 24 hours, although it will often be a lot less, while matchups will depend on the amount of champions you asked for. After that, I will notify you via PM I am done, or send you the matchups via PM.

WHAT ARE THE RULES?



First off, don't be a ****. I rarely give out downvotes, and being a **** is an instant downvote from me.

Limit yourself to one guide at a time.

Summoner's Rift only, I might review a Dominion guide if it is really good, but Twisted Treeline is completely out of the question.

English only. I know the... uhh... Serbo-Croatian family of languages and a bit of Russian, but I will limit myself to guides written in English because more people will understand them.

All discussion besides the request should be in this thread (and most of the times, even that). It is so people can find out what can they expect out of me.

HOW DO YOU REVIEW GUIDES?



I don't give out arbitrary numerical values to your guide. I just review it. If it is good, you get an upvote. If it is bad, then you get no vote. If it REALLY bad, or you are a ****, you get a downvote. No matter how good your guide is, you will get criticism. Note, however, that it is easier to criticize bad guides instead of good ones, so the amount of criticism received should be inversely proportional to the quality of your guide. Also note that I am a support focused all-rounder, so expect the best critique for support guides.

HOW DO YOU WRITE MATCHUPS?



I try to keep them short and concise. If you want an example, check out my Taric guide.

HOW CAN I REPAY YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE?



I accept +rep, links to this in your signature, links to this in your guides, art for the review/matchup shop, my guide getting spellchecked at this moment, and most of all, a review of my guide. If I did matchups for you, it is mandatory to credit me, but everything else is a gesture of your goodwill and completely optional.

WHAT REVIEWS ARE ON YOUR TO-DO LIST?



TotHeMax's Jungle Nunu; Watch for Dem Ganks!: Common jungle matchups.

WHAT MATCHUPS DO YOU PLAN TO WRITE?



Nothing at this very moment.

WHAT REVIEWS DID YOU ALREADY DO?



WHAT MATCHUPS DID YOU WRITE



Amazing Monkey's Sun Wukong, Great Sage Equal to Heaven: Most top matchups from A-K, possibly more in the future.

IS THIS A PLOY TO GET MORE UPVOTES FOR YOUR TARIC GUIDE?



Kinda.

Did I help you? Do you feel nice today? Take a look at my guide,I would really appreciate it.

Ok, Skullz, wonder why I didn't review this WAAAAY earlier, because it is ridiculously comprehensive. Sorry for the short review, but, I don't really want to tell you how awesome the guide is:

This is my first guide but I'm fairly confident in myself that it turned out really nice. I put a lot of time into it so I want it to be successful.


Summoner Level:30

Link to the guide: http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/varus-purple-is-a-manly-color-work-in-progress-239833

Have you read the guide to making a guide?:Yeah

Have I reviewed your guide before?:no

Anything specific you want reviewed, and if so, what?:Not entirely. Just looking for general opinions on it.
Anything I should know?: First guide, but I would like to think it's more pleasing to look at than some of the other guides that have been out for quite a while.

Wasn't sure if I could request both....If not, I'd really just like the review.

Summoner Level: 30
Link to the guide: Lulu- Whimsical Wonders of the Imagination! Yay!
Have you read the guide to making a guide?: Yes
Have I reviewed your guide before?: No
Anything specific you want reviewed, and if so, what?: Really, as there are things yet to be added, I mostly want opinions or suggestions for what is there at the moment.
Anything I should know?: This is primarily a solo top guide for Lulu, with a light section on mid. Please don't review this a mid guide

Link to the guide (if you are working on it, publish it, then archive it): Sun Wukong- Great Sage Equal to Heaven.
What lane do you want matchups for?: Top
Any specific champions you want matchups for?: I already have some of them done. Just pick a few that you find most often.
Anything else I should know?: I plan on eventually doing match-ups for all of the champions. So when you see champs like Ahri or Ashe, don't worry about that. Just focus on Solo-top champs =3

If you felt I contributed and stuff, can I have a (+1 Rep =3)?
Need a sig? Come get one for at Amazing Monkey's Community Sig Shop!
View my Wukong Guide- Great Sage Equal to Heaven, Shyvana Guide- Justice Under Dragon's Wings, or NEW Lulu Guide- Whimsical Wonders of the Imagination! Yay!
