So out of curiosity, why aren't we getting any guides for this game?

I've always found myself wondering why, with the huge popularity of this game both on this site and elsewhere, why it seems like no one's interested in contributing guides to GameFAQs for it.

We have three general FAQs and three Champion-specific guides for it. 4 of these guides haven't been updated since 2010 and 2 haven't been updated since 2011.

Is it simply that the game doesn't need guides, or is there just a lack of incentive from us or something? If it's just a game that's hard to cover with plain text, we do offer formatting for guides to add images and other formatting to the guide, so I'm assuming that isn't the problem.

Is there anything that we can do to help encourage submissions, or is it just a lost cause?

Hey SBAllen.

It's because there are other websites that do it better, simply put.

Other websites have the images from the game that are programmed into the site, so people use that instead. They have a more specific and precise way than just text.

I really think it's a lost cause because the first result when you google League of Legends guides are a bunch of other websites.

It's all about the format.

I was wondering this too, that ConductorSix guy would do a pretty good job of making guides (since he pretty much does it on the forum already)

I think the problem is that with the way riot nerfs/buffs champions, the guides would need to be updated so often that people are just not really up to it.

All the other League of Legends guide sites have better formats, such as solomid.net.

A lot of updates and constant changes, requiring more attention. Also, more resources and reliable guides around.

This.

I didn't know GameFAQs guides could have images until just now.

Mostly because there are sites like Solomid, Mobafire and LolKing that contain numerous, updated guides (Most patches have drastic changes for all champions) and it would be a pain for everyone to keep updating guides.

Solomid.net is already an incredibly popular website for guides. Plus, they have plugins to make pictures of items, build order, runes, and masteries which are easier to read than text
