Tauricus' guide introduces an intriguing red-blue color theme. This stays present throughout the entire guide, and is showcased through code and art. The guide itself is formatted very well, and every section offers new details to admire, while sticking to the central theme. This theme and the accompanying art are what makes this guide stand out and combined with its consistency and well-executed code are what makes this guide the winner of the fabulous category!


Thanks to all the authors for writing all these awesome guides, and to the judges for spending the time to go through thousands of candidates. I hope everyone enjoyed the contest and may these guides help you with your ranked journey this season!

Hey all!

This contest we sadly didn't find a good enough guide to pick as our new guide winner for the Support category. Instead, we've decided to pick another updated guide to keep the number of winners the same, and to make sure the prize is awarded to an author that deserves it.

Special thanks to everyone who took part and see you in the next one! 😁

Congratulations to all the winners and a huge thank you to all the judges. I possibly cannot imagine how much work you must have put in to read through all guides!

Thank you for picking my Yuumi guide, I can barely realize it just yet but it's a huge honor for me.

O.O Wait my guide won... twice? :D <33
Not gonna lie I didn't doubt that I'll place well in the off-meta category. But the fabulous category??? :D

You guys have no idea how much that means to me. Ever since I created my first award-winning guide I always felt kind of... behind, in terms of style, presentation and fabulous-ness. As if I only kept winning because I am a solid writer instead of being a good "guide artist". This trend followed even through my AP Miss Fortune guide days. Everyone was using these pretty tables and responsive formatting stuff while I still struggled with the-most-basic columns >.< . After releasing my Anivia guide I knew I slightly improved, but I still felt kind of like a loser visually-wise. So winning in a category purely based on style, colors, formatting, and aesthetic means the world to me <3

Okay okay my story aside, I would like to give a special shoutout to all the judges <3
Not only for the hard work they did reviewing all these guides but also because we all know they would probably easily win in their respective categories if they wouldn't be part of the jury :D

"I guide others to a treasure I cannot possess." ~ The whole jury team, probably

A bonus shoutout to @ Aerenax - I knew you've got it in you! You absolutely deserved this one <3

Congratulations to all winners! Special shout-out to Tauricus2017 with the double victory, more than deserved. Gorgeous Anivia guide!

Thank you so much <333

The comment section here looks like the Oscar Award speeches - that shows how much appreciation members of mobafire have for the judges and this site as a whole. In a game that can be as toxic as acid, this community sure isn't. Congratulations to all the winners, may they continue to do their awesome work and may the rest of us have more luck, skill and passion for writing guides in the next one !

Wait... I am actually super surprised... I didn't even expect a honourable mention not to mention a win

Reason is I wanted to put a lot more time into the guide adding a lot of things over the break, but I couldnt actually do much and added only a bit during the judging peroid. As well as me accidentally replacing my early game section with a copy of my item section in my guide for 1.5 weeks during the judging peroid.

But thanks a lot! It means a lot to me. And congrats to all other winners =)

(Also why is Fruxo, the adc judge, not in between the mid and support judge rather than the very end.)(This is at the bottom)
