Hi MobaFire!

So, I've got a bit of a rant here that will turn into a suggestion (eventually).

I come and check the "high-elo" new guides, and I'm pretty dumbfounded. I see multiple guides labeled "Ap *insert champ that doesn't work well with ap here*"
No disrespect to you guys, but they're just as bad as the other 99% of the guides released.
They all have the same text, which bugs me even more.

Can you guys seriously archive these guides?
A. They're not serious, and I don't consider them humorous
B. They take up an extra top tier guide slot, which ****s over that poor guy that has actually put some hard work into his guide, instead of publishing a ****ty guide for the "lulz".
C. You guys are only getting away with this because you're common around here and you're high elo. If a 1 post scrub did it, he'd be flamed and it wouldn't even reach the top (where all of yours sit permanently) .

So yeah. Archive the guides please. Give the other guide writers a chance.

TO THE SUGGESTION! *zooming sounds*
This topic has sparked an idea. Why should a guide be labelled as "high-elo" if the guide is horrible? Lots of the high elo author write walls of texts, weird guides that aren't criticized because they're high elo.
My idea would be to have the "High elo" strip across the guides name, but they have to work for their spot. They don't get automatically put up to the top, they have to earn their way up with votes.
And don't even get me started on the amount of sheep votes "Oh, you're plat 5? I better build a Runaan's Hurricane on Zed".

- Rant / suggestion over.

EDIT: Turns out Oxide has already said something similar.

It was funny for a day or so. Now it's just getting ridiculous.

It's the same as internet memes in general. Someone thinks it's funny and copies it. More people think it's funny and copy it, and so on and so forth.

That's just a side argument.

My main issue is that there are lots of ****py, stale guides that provide no information and aren't up to the standard of the top guides, yet are permanently sitting there due to their cute little "high-elo" badge.
