I wish this was for TFT aswell

Hey @ EvoNinja7!

We've had a special category for General Guides in the previous guide contest which also included TFT guides. We barely had any quality entries and it was difficult to pick appropriate winners. I would be happy to bring back the category if the interest for general and TFT guides increases, but that remains to be seen until next time! :)

Because of this contest are 90% of guides absolute ****, don't tell me that half of community can make 50-100 guides and they really mastered that champion, no offense :-) have a nice day

Hey @ simplepoetry!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. If you have any ideas that would help us improve the content of our website, the guide contests or anything at all, feel free to let us know at any time. We're always working on improving both the experience of authors and readers, and ideas are much appreciated. :)

I invite you to take part in this guide contest and show us how a good guide is supposed to look like! If you dislike any guides at all, I'm sure that providing feedback to their authors will help with improving their guides and the overall experience of the community. Help us become better!
Special thanks to Jovy for the wonderful signature :)

I kind of feel the same way in that regard to be honest. The majority of the guides are simply here to promote themselves on twitch for view count with no guide what so ever but still end up having a large upvote count. I think that's what's mostly the problem. Opinion a guide shouldn't be...

"Watch me on Twitch if you want to get to Challenger! EZ"

A guide should sit people down, an explain things properly, both structurally and visually while also taking into consideration that the readers may also have a specific response to something, filling in that information as well or even asking the community for questions not answered in the guide.

Walls of text that are not structured properly also are hard to really take seriously, because the authors clearly do not take any of it into consideration, reading left - right evenly is much better than everything being center, right, left, down, up or pacing properly with images and text!

I think the biggest problem is yeah, if someone is Challenger they don't have the time to make guides, since they have to play to maintain themselves so guides are usually half-***ed. However, readers would rather look at them as opposed to someone who actually has a guide.

This is just my opinion, but I don't think many people take their guides dead serious, like it's their life or passion. Simply a thing to promote themselves with little to no work involved. I don't know how one would make it better... but it's frustrating trying to follow poorly written guides.
It's like trying to understand the illustrations that come with flat pack furniture and getting nowhere fast having to start over or even reread sections.

I have just known that over the years people have associated MobaFire as the "bad" website because the guides were poorly made by "Low Elo" players with very little contribution from "high elo" players, but I liked it due to it's nice simple sleek design and friendly community.
The great thing about multitasking is that several things can go wrong at once.

Hey @ Sovereign Kitten !

We are actually looking into this issue right now. There are going to be some changes in regard to "rushed guides" that are looking only to promote YouTube / Twitch content.

If you have any ideas of your own that would help, feel free to send me a PM. :)

Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

My guide was created after July 9th but it no longer shows up as a "New Guide" when browsing. Would it still qualify for the New Guide category?

Hello @ Shumair !

Yes, that is perfectly fine. As long as you've created it after this announcement was posted, it's considered a new guide. Good luck! :)

Ah, that doesn't sound fun @ Shumair. :(

If you still have a link to the guide, can you please send it to me through a PM and maybe I can recover your progress?
