Creator: jhoijhoi January 6, 2013 1:32am
Should this be implemented for MobaFire guides?

Whilst the addition of filtering guides was a great boon to finding the right guides when you needed them, I find it oft difficult to figure out the alignment of a guide judging by the cheat sheet alone. Supposing I didn't use the filtering page, but just clicked on Ashe down below, and clicked on a random guide, I may have to actually read the guide to determine which role/lane/map the guide was written for.

So why not something incredibly simple to tell me right away what the guide will detail? LoLPro has something similar. As it is, one has to tick what map, role and lane the guide is written for, so the hardest part of the coding is there.

I think that would be a great idea! It would also help unclutter some guides for champions that can go into different lanes, such as Lee Sin or Cho'Gath. All you simply have to do it look at the top now instead of going through the entire guide.

Why do you have to have such amazing ideas :3

If I helped you, click that +rep!

It's just that not all guides say "Dominion Support Soraka" or whatever, and I feel as if this would be an easy way for guide readers to quickly assess if the guide is what they're looking for.

Seems like a nice idea though it would be better if it would show up on the guide browsing page as well, like you said to encourage people to click on ones that are for dominion support soraka. I don't know where it would go, will think about it. :)
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

Don't care much for trolls. Also yes I really like this. Always wondered why we have these categories but that they are 'lurking in the dark'.

Basically there's already a ton of stuff displayed on the listing for a guide. It's hard to fit more stuff in. People also often make these definitions in their guide titles.

"Often"... Nah, more like, "sometimes". Consider Nick's, my own, Psi's, Astrolia's, Khazem's - none of these guides have titles like "Top Lane Elise" or "Twisted Treeline Support Nami".

I know it's crowded a bit as it is, but hopefully the categories can be exposed more, like Nick mentioned, instead of being "hidden".

I like the idea.

Personally I think Jhoi is better played as a support though. :3
