It's finally time to announce the winners of our Be Prepared! 2016 Guide Contest! There were a lot of great guides that qualified for this contest, but we could only pick one to win in each category. Check out the honorable mentions for more great guides for each category.

Before we look at the results, we'd like to briefly address some rule-breaking that happened during the contest this year.

Shortly after the deadline of the contest had passed, it was brought to our attention that some suspicious activity had taken place regarding the category of top rated guide (based on votes), with one of the guides that had been near the top for a long amount of time receiving several downvotes. Following an in-depth investigation, it became apparent to us that a group of users had banded together to mass downvote this guide in an attempt to influence the category's results. We also found evidence of another guide being downvoted by a member of the community on a second account. It should go without saying that both of these cases are strictly against MOBAFire's rules in regards to voting, and as such all of these votes were removed before we picked a winner.

Given the background story, we have decided to take no action against the culprits beyond removing votes this time around, but we will be keeping a close eye on this in the future; it should go without saying that repeat offenders will be punished severely.

Another (related) issue we have to address involves a questionable strategy used by one guide author, who decided to archive his guide so no downvotes could be cast on it and it would remain at the top. While this author ended up not winning the category, it's a possibility which we as admins had not considered and - following a short discussion - have concluded we are not okay with. As such, archiving a guide for an extended amount of time will be listed as against the rules in future contests.

We take these kind of issues very seriously, and would like to ask you not to try and take measures into your own hands. If at any point you suspect someone is cheating to influence the result of the guide contest, contact us and we will take care of it.

Now let's get to it! :)


Badges



In addition to physical and RP prizes, the author of the winning guide for each category will receive a unique badge for their profile. The badge will be linked to their guide so that anyone can easily check out their awesome guide with just one click!

Winners will also receive a unique title that goes along with their badge! Keep in mind that the badges and titles may take a little while to show up, so be patient!


Winners!






<Perfectionist>

No Followin' These Footsteps
Best in show. The guide with the overall best build, content, visuals, etc.

Prize: MOBAFire T-shirt, MOBAFire Hat, Champion Figurine, Teemo Hat + 2800 RP

Ahpulzz' support Trundle guide really exemplifies what makes a great guide. The organization and layout is solid and keeps readers engaged; the content is thorough but not overbearing; and the author's use of images, videos and tips and tricks perfectly highlight the strength's of support Trundle, especially his Pillar of Ice. Congratulations Ahpulzz on the best guide of this year's contest!





<Crowd Favorite>

All Will Know Us... In Time

Tell Me A Secret - Super In-Depth Diamond Ahri Guide [6.1]

Author: Elusive Ferret

Prize: MOBAFire T-shirt, MOBAFire Hat, Champion Figurine + 2800 RP

Elusive Ferret's Ahri guide has been one of the top guides on the site for a long time now, so it's no surprise seeing it come in at #1 in the guide rankings this year. Be prepared for a "super in-depth" guide with detailed explanations and tips, plus lots of options for runes, masteries and items. Thankfully, Elusive Ferret combines this extreme amount of detail with a pleasant and organized aesthetic to keep the reader from being overwhelmed.





<Lucky Charm>

The Die Is Cast
Lady Luck is smiling. The guide that is randomly drawn from the list of eligible guides.

The lucky winner of this year's random draw is Swuft and his guide for Pantheon top. This guide is concise and includes a full build explanation and some general gameplay tips, as well as a breakdown of Pantheon's early levels in laning phase. Congratulations on winning the draw!






<Fabulous>

Delightify!
The most fabulous guide. Best use of images, coding, etc to make the most visually pleasing and easy to read guide.

-DJ Sona Remix-

Author: Emikadon

Prize: MOBAFire T-shirt, Champion Figurine + 1380 RP

Emikadon's guide for DJ Sona is an aesthetic masterpiece. The colorful, yet consistent theme of DJ Sona's Kinetic varient ties the whole guide together without being overpowering, leaving you with the attention for the fantastic content of the guide. Emikadon uses a variety of graphical aids in her guide, but keeps the theme consistent so you'll never forget which guide you have the pleasure of reading.

honorable mentions






<King of the Hill>

Crush Them Underfoot
The overall best guide for a champion in the top role.

[6.1] Riven Melee DPS Assassin guide

Author: LimitlessHavoc

Prize: MOBAFire T-shirt, Champion Figurine + 1380 RP

Another year, another Riven guide winning the top lane category. This year's winner is a different Riven guide using the Arcade Riven skin's green theme. LimitlessHavoc covers all the bases when it comes to a good guide, but this guide shines most in its detailed matchups section and thorough explanations of combos and gameplay patterns.

honorable mentions






<Stalker>

I Will Show You The Path
The overall best guide for a champion in the jungler role.


The King of Bop: A Competitive Jungle Gragas Guide


Author: Pluckin Penguin

Prize: MOBAFire T-shirt, Champion Figurine + 1380 RP

Pluckin Penguin's Gragas guide was the strongest of several guide jungle guides this year. Judges felt that due to Pluckin Penguin's dedication to making this guide as complete as possible, it beat out the competition. This guide includes information on all viable items on Gragas and all of his essential skill combos, along with detailed build explanations and matchup information. The aesthetic and layout is simple, but clean, and it gets the job done.

honorable mentions






<Magic Man>

You Smell Like Burning!
The overall best guide for a champion in the mid role.
Nidalee Nyaaaaaaaa (^・ω・^ )

Author: Embracing

Prize: MOBAFire T-shirt, Champion Figurine + 1380 RP

Embracing's guide was a contender for several categories this year, but judges deemed it as the best guide for mid lane. A solid aesthetic combined with detailed information on Nidalee gameplay makes this guide a great read for top, jungle and especially mid lane Nidalee players. Detailed item, ability and combo explanations will ensure you're a capable Nidalee no matter what role you're playing.

honorable mentions






<Sharpshooter>

Give Me A Target
The overall best guide for a champion in the marksman role.

Bilgewater's Finest - S6 Miss Fortune ADC

Author: MissMaw

Prize: MOBAFire T-shirt, Champion Figurine + 1380 RP

For those of you who don't know, MissMaw's name actually comes from a combination of Miss Fortune and Kog'Maw! It should be no surprise, then, that she knows how to write a great Miss Fortune guide. MissMaw's use of an arcade-style theme binds the wonderful content of the guide together. This is a great read for both new and experienced players looking to learn Miss Fortune.

honorable mentions






<Wingman>

To Heal And Protect
The overall best guide for a champion in the support role.

Peaceful Janna Support

Author: MissMaw

Prize: MOBAFire T-shirt, Champion Figurine + 1380 RP

Wait, MissMaw again? Yep, MissMaw won both of the bot-lane categories this year. Her new Janna guide took the top spot for the support category since Ahpulzz' Trundle guide won best-in-show. The top 3 guides for this category were very close, and thankfully all of them win in one category! MissMaw's guide exhibits her usual aesthetic strengths and detailed ability explanations. As always, with MissMaw, you'll never be reading without a visual aid, helping to break up sections of text. Judges felt that MissMaw's combination of high quality information with to-the-point concision are what make her guide so unique.

honorable mentions

Perhaps it's arrogant of me to say, but the quality of guides this past year have seriously skyrocketed. I can't even imagine how hard it was to choose between some of the guides I'd seen pop up on here, but congratulations to everyone! <3
Made this sig myself :)
