What's Happening?

MOBAFire inhouse games will be moving from an official, scheduled system to an open one that allows anyone to host their own impromptu inhouses. This means:

  • The rank of Referee will be removed.
  • There will be no official inhouse schedule.
  • There will be no regular inhouse raffle (unless inhouse hosts provide their own).
    • Note: We've been behind on the raffle so we'll still be catching up and giving out RP for the last few months.
  • Any community member can now host and moderate their own inhouse games.


Why the Change?

We've struggled to get inhouses on a regular schedule on both the NA and EUW servers, but over the past few months we've learned that the community seems to respond better to impromptu games that occur when interest is high, rather than regular games at the same time every week. Opening up inhouse-hosting to all community members and all times allows you to play community games at the times that work best for you.


How Do I Get Started?

To host your own inhouse games, create a thread in the Community Games subforum with the information for your inhouse games. Be sure to include the date and time of the inhouses in the title of your post so others can see when it's coming up You can organize your signups, game types and team balancing the way you want to, so take charge!

To join inhouse games, check the Community Games subforum for recent threads and leave a comment expressing your interest in joining. Be sure to check the thread to see if the host asks for any other information from you.

Strange as it may sound, inhouses were directly responsible for both the best period of my life, and the worst (nothing to do with the games).

I didn't play in many, but I had a fun time with the ones I did (except one that I got camped in grr). RIP.

Inhouses lived and died by the referee, when you had refs that would troll or try and stack teams to favor them or their friends they were ****. Certain people were made referees that had no business being them.

I assume that was the issue on NA? Because on EUW people just decided they were playing soloQ
Thank you Byron for 2014's loudest laugh up till today

I'd like to thank all referees, both the old and new, for hosting the inhouses all these years. It was a great ride for how long it lasted. The same goes for everyone else who was a part of those weekend nights of course. Great rides. :^)

But seriously, it was awesome. Best part of MOBAFire by far in my view. It has formed the way I play League of Legends, and I've met some amazing people at the end of my robotic arm. (If you feel left out, just shoot me a message. We'll make a custom and all you have to do is just stand still while I take a minute to aim).

Looking at the few old screenshots that are left takes me back to those feelings of excitement, high tension, ****ty jokes, piles and piles of salt and that occasional shot of pure joy when things just came together, or when things just went hilariously wrong.

I'm not going to write a melancholic essay because I feel I've been doing way too much of them already. So, thanks everyone. I hope (and I've noticed) I'll still be meeting you occasionally on the fields of justice or whatever they're called these days. MOBAFire members are still the best bunch of gaming buddies I've come across. Until next!
********'s a pretty good fertilizer
