League of Legends (LoL) Question: Should I write a guide?

    Should I write a guide?

    Hello guys!

    So I was looking at some guides and I was like: Dude, I should write one too. But each time I try writing one, I delete it after 5 minutes.

    Should I even bother trying? Is it worth studying whole LoL to write one simple guide?

    It's also great if you happen to want to make a guide for a champion who doesn't have a good or up to date guide here on MOBAFire. It'll be more likely to succeed and you'd be helping out the community by making a needed guide for that champion :)

    Some other "tips" for continuing a guide after you've started it, that I can think of, that work for me:
    • Do coding first. I find it easier to code everything out with "asdf" everywhere instead of writing the text since I'm not always inspired enough to write and I tend to get writer's block when I'm trying to force myself to. If I do the coding first I can finish the whole guide in the hour and then just fill in text when I'm inspired to write.
    • Make or commission graphics. You might feel a slight pressure to complete the guide once you've already gotten all the art
    • Do the easy chapters first: summoner spells, runes, items are all easy to explain whereas gameplay can take some creativity to do.

    Only thing I disagree with @ Prate_k about is publishing unfinished guides. You can save it and leave it for later for sure, but I'd avoid publishing it until it is 99-100% done since people won't really pay attention to it if it's unfinished and some people might even downvote it.

    Of course you should, It can be fun if you do it for the champion u love, + its cool helping someone out. And you dont have to deleted just save it and finish later when you feel like it!

    If you play a champion well and can provide something other than standard builds that are already out there, it's a good idea to share it ^^. If you just want to share a build that you tried and works, i think there's like a build guide, which is shorter than a full guide option when publishing it. You can also write general guides to give some tips on mechanics, macro and micro gameplays etc. The new runes allows for a lot of combinations and not everything is tried and shared.

    And about not being able to finish the guide, you can generally start with the items, runes and some stats about the champion it is on. Publishing that (instead of delete) then build onto that slowly whenever you have the time or are bored or feel like starting another guide again... work on the same one.
