I find Beej's guide to early game and laning pretty well done. Nominated!

I've read my share of guides both good and bad, and I agree, there's an almost overwhelming amount of junk to sort through. Even when you do find a good guide, the frequent balance patches to this game mean they're usually outdated.

When I have some time on my hands I'd be glad to work on this. The stickied guide index is a start, but the LoL community deserves... well, it deserves this.

Thumbs up.

However i found 3 excellent guides, and i'd say these should provide an example, how a guide should be detailed and written.

GiRLSTAR's Super Awesome Delicious Morgana Guide!

GiRLSTAR & Medikai's Ultra Pro Semi-Comprenshive Semi-Comprehensible Akali Guide

GiRLSTAR's Spectacularly Awesome Malzaguy the Incredible Guide

Thumbs up for GiRLSTAR also.

I completely agree. That's the problem with nominations. There's no reason that the people doing the nominating are or know any better than those who write the terrible guides. Random noobs could follow a guide and pub-stomp faceroll and then nominate it thinking it's actually a good guide just because they won in the 1000 Elo bracket.

I propose a secondary check or fail-safe, if you will, in that in addition to receiving the 10 nominations, a guide must also have a minimum up-vote ranking to qualify.

So far the only 2 guides that have qualified as "Quality" are mine and Hyfe's and, apologies for my boldness, I believe this is rightfully so. I think, however, that with time, more and more unfit guides will be nominated and it, indeed, is only a matter of time before even bad guides receive 10 votes cast from beginners picking them up and winning with them.

An even more official/badass, yet admittedly over-the-top solution would be that a group of some sorts could be formed to either accept or veto guides receiving 10 nominations. Members could be the first three or something having a guide receiving Quality status. (tehe)

Amazed these haven't come up before (or at least that I haven't seen them).

Nicosharp's Weeba Wousa Gragas Guide: https://www.leagueoflegends.com/boar...ad.php?t=73252

I believe this contains guides to both Bodyslamming Gragas (DPS, I guess?) and Tank Gragas, both of which can be very nice. And considering that Gragas doesn't even have any entries on the masterlist of guides, well...

That Morgana guide is out-of-date and terrible even if it weren't. You've just proven my point. (Bottom of page)
