This is sort of random but I was wondering why you, if you have a guide(s), remake your guide(s)? If the reason something like your guide being troll voted: How much troll votes can you tolerate before deciding to remake your guide? Do you think your guide could be better so you decide to remake it? Are there any other reasons you remake your guide?

You haven't updated in a while and champion has been changed a lot, you play diffrerently, or you wanted to fix your layout.

Any one or combination of these really.

I remake under 2 circumstances.

1: When I have severely improved the build, skill order, ect. and I'm already in the lower percentages.

2: When I need to make another guide for a different role now that we;re changing how the guides are filtered.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

What they all said. I have " Viktor 2.0" guide in mind when he finally gets his core reworks.

I re-made my talon guide because I believed it didn't have a fair score. After re-making it I discovered the top Talon guide owner at the time had used fake accounts to get his own guide up and most probably been the one who'd down-voted my guide various times. I reported his guide, it got taken down, and my guide instantly became #1 because of it. Fun times.

Sometimes, patches change the way champions are played, or a buff or debuff is given to certain items and builds. When an item or champion gets nerfed, it's sometimes best to re-do the guide.

1. When I neglect a guide for too long and it becomes outdated (Talking 8-12 months, here)

2. When it gets trollvoted beyond belief for a long period of time

3. When I can't afford to keep the current guide updated, I'll archive it and release a new one 6ish months later.
