The new Mobafire makes it more difficult to navigate around. For example before you could just google "Examplechampion guide" and then click the first link and then it would show the top 10 or so guides just to the left, no matter if the first link was expired or not. Now what you have to do is to slowly navigate around the entire site to find a decent guide.

Also the new Guide format discourages commenting. I have been observing that people rarely leave comments on any guides now, I am pretty sure this is the result of lazy people who just can't be bothered navigating to the guide discussion page since now there is no "Quick Reply" at the bottom of the page.

Finally the drop-down list at the right of the page from which you could select "Top Champ" is now gone, making it much more difficult for new Mobafire users to find good guides.

I would really like to see some of these features back. Jus Sayin'. Thanks

I actually like now that Mobafire makes it harder to find "decent" guides.

Most of the time, your top 5 to top 10 guides are really terrible guides that had a fanbase from previous guides or have a lot of friends that kept upvoting to reach at that level. With this new method of "omg, it's so hard to find a decent guide now", it actually forces visitors and members to look for their guide that they wanna see. Too many people seldom click on top 11 and beyond even though they might be legit guides that help you.

If you aren't lazy, just manually click:

- http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/browse
- Select your desired champion
- Select "Ideal" & "Score"
- Profit!!!

You can still see the top guides, or in your vocabulary, "decent guides".

And if people aren't so lazy, at the TOP of the page in guides, you can actually click on Guide Discussion and then you can post/read other people's comments. In all honesty, most people never comment if the vote isn't C2V, or won't comment because they are trollvoting or revenge voting to hide their votes. The new Mobafire did not change anything at all for commenting, it was already always like this. Too many people just don't care enough to use their fingers to write "Nice guide! +1", "hey, this is an okay guidez, and i wun downvote or upvot yet cuz i wanna ask u... kan u plz answer me question y u use trin force for massive dmg plox???" or "bro, your guide sucks ***, but plz dont revengevote my guide -1".

Just sayin'.

yes i do think it discourages commenting. this is because you need to click on discussion in order to leave a comment. some ppl just dont have the patience. how bout an addition for leaving a comment somewhere on the build page Matt?

I would argue that it's faster than the old one depending on the guide length. If a guide was very long you would have to either read all the guide then you're at the comments anyways, or if you didn't scroll all the way down. Clicking on the tab is faster in a lot of cases.

Still having 1 comment box at the bottom could be useful and it just goes to the discussion tab once it's submitted. :)

I agree, I dislike having to click to open up the guide discussion aspect and switching back after.

Just hold CTRL and be happy :>

It is not as if you were going to scroll up (to the guide) and down (to the comments) all the time anyways. And if the page load is faster this way, everyone is happy :)

However I like the idea of just having a box down there, so the "random reader" can leave a quick comment about the guide instead of having to go all the way back up top and express their opinion there.
I'd also like to see an up/down vote thingy below the guide ;)

If it is too new, you are simply getting too old.
