I'm not saying that either, but I guess I should just go off on both your Renekton and Ezreal guide then? I can find plenty of flaws in them, and it doesn't help that you have the "gold" emblem on your profile. So what we're doing with this system is were telling people that this guide is good because it's written by a high elo player and that's not always the case. Anyway I'll go into it more later in this post

And when exactly did I bring up my renekton or ezreal guide? They are flawed but I have had no criticism whatsoever for the past few months on my renekton guide nor any for my ezreal guide besides updates. If you're willing to give criticism feel free to. High elo badges don't show that guides are omg perfect. It shows that these players play at a higher level, and most of the times write guides better than other guides. At least I don't rush a frozen mallet on renekton or some other crazy ****. There will be flaws in my guides, I agree, but at least they're less relevant than other major mistakes. Eventually with the proper system flow, better players will appear with better guides and they would be updated and viewed more.

are you really going to sit here and lecture me on diverting focus onto something 'minor and irrelevant' when you're the guy who actually gives a **** what reddit thinks? As I replied to Wayne, plenty of things can be implied in a post.


Yeah, telling someone they're a hypocrite in a debate totally helps discussion.

And I don't really see your comment on me bringing in a reddit post is relevant. Mind clarifying?
I used the reddit post to start the discussion and I don't see how it's irrelevant if the discussion in the first few pages was all about what we should do in order for others to think higher of our site.

Mooninites wrote:

whether a guide is good or not is subjective. It's an opinion; your views on what makes a guide vs. what doesn't can be very different from everyone elses.


Then how do we determine what is viable and what is not? How do we determine what is better than which? Yes, the evaluation of guides can be different. However, in the end guides with false information are still flat out wrong and can be mostly interpreted as "bad".


Mooninites wrote:

It's absolutely absurd to think this is the main focus of a guide. Guide's are general outlines of how to play a champion/game mode/etc. There's no way to include information for players to properly assess every situation in a guide.

^ was kinda referring to teaching a person how to play but i guess i was vague there

This doesn't happen, so stop pretending like it does. Very few of these "experienced players" bother to comment on low level guides. And that's not to say that these high elo guides are any better. I've seen plenty of "high elo" guides on here that are absolute trash.

Er what are you talking about that doesn't happen? People do talk about high rated bad guides, if you were referring to that.

And also, I do agree most high-elo guides are trash (esp with gold as "high elo"). At least they don't mislead players.

Sour cream and cheddar crisps. But i'm thinking of busting out the pecan sandies here in a few.

Anyway, the point of this thread was to start a discussion and make some changes. Which HAPPENED. We had like 3 different discussions going on in different levels of the 'hidden' boards (e.g the editors forum, scouts forum, and vets forum) And we all discussed it as a site, and found solutions that I believe have made a difference in the last few months. What we have now is just everyone getting pissed at each other for pretty much no reason at all. It's sad and I hate watching the people i've looked up to since I joined the site a year ago break down and start squabbling over nothing.

I know I'm a month late on this and probably no one cares what I have to say,but why are they so concern about what we do here on MobaFire? Mind your own business. I don't care if you're pro or a noob, a good guide is a good guide no matter what. At the end day, is someone's guide going to cure cancer? No. Is their guide going to help end world hunger? No. To fight over guides about a video/computer game is so silly.

I wish there wasn't this war between guide sites. I think Moba is the most welcoming community for LoL players. Most of the people here give each other advice out of love and because they care,not because they are a pro and think they are the greatest thing since slice bread.

That's just my thoughts :S

It should honestly have been locked way back then, it definitely should be this time.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

I'm not starting a fight. o.O I just think they need to stay on their site and we stay on ours. That's all I wanted to say. xD Now if I wanted to start a fight, I could say cookies are better than ice cream. :P
