I mean we have Mobafire inhouses and scrim against eachother. You can always form teams by yourself with other mobafire members. Solomid was a team first and a site 2nd (I thought?) and that's why they have a team for the website.

Even with inhouses we have disputes though. Some people just want to have fun, and some people want to have a serious game. Serious inhouses have tried to be signed up for and managed in the past by Xaioli, but the fact is it's a lot of work for 1 person to manage that, and somebody would have to decide who makes the cut and who doesn't.

It is a good idea, but well, all of the cons have already been mentioned :p

Though having inhouses is fun, we should organize them more often :D

Who care's about the QQ'ers. We can do a long-length tournament to build teams, or just come to a conclusion in discussion.

I'd say that we narrow it down into the current team meta

Someone who mains each of these roles:

Top / Ap carry / AD carry / support / jungle.

Every player interested in filling certain role posts their stats / elo / everything. Community vote or a tournament of sorts.

But who says it has to be just one team? The first person who doesn't get picked takes initiative and forms team B. We learn and grow from all of our mistakes / errors / successes!

I mean, every other team found away to form, didn't it?

I mean if you feel like it go ahead and try, just a fair warning. Though it wouldn't be officially endorsed by mobafire.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

We can make like a signup thing.. Then just pick out 5, if somebody is under the level of the others. He gon be switched.?

So we are affraid to step somebody over his toes? Well if he's better then he should be able to prove himself.

I love the idea!

However it should wait until the summer because more people will be able to tryout due to school for many.

To narrow down the tryouts there should be requirments such as:

Times available, working mic and a certain elo. I know that might not seem fair but if you don't make those requirments you'll have to try out a good 100 people... that's ridiculous.

Also tryouts should be done for each role. Because that's the way it really is (or so I've heard) for pro teams. We'd want the BEST AD ranged, jungler, support, top lane and mid lane possible.

I could imagine it easily being official if the administrators+ were to create a team. That would of course only include themselves though, representing the site, all that good stuff. I do believe they are a little bit more concerned with keeping the site updated and under control though.

I'm sure some of us could form some MobaFan or I <3 Moba teams. You would be showing your support to MobaFire as opposed to representing it or being sponsored.

Once teams get up pretty high in their ratings, there are people out there that will want to sponsor you. That just takes quite some time to achieve. Maybe, just maybe, that sponsor could end up being MobaFire if you get high enough rating.

I believe Duff should be Solo Top.

We can have teams in each region, like:
  • MOBAfire NA West
  • MOBAfire NA East
  • MOBAfire EUW, etc.

And maybe have requirements to join, like a minimum wins/minimum elo? Or have testing to see if they qualify?
