    Dear all,

    The team guides section of the forum is being revamped slightly. There are now three sections:

    1. Guides that are "under evaluation".
    2. Archived guides.
    3. Active guides.
    Before explaining the changes, let me begin by saying thank you all very much on behalf of the entire community for all the wonderful guides that have been written over the years.

    The idea behind the changes is as follows:
    • Many of the most active guides have been lingering "under evaluation" for aeons.
    • There are a number of guides in the main section that refer to leaders who have been out of the meta since 2005.
    In the future, we ( = the mod team) intend to be much snappier about moving guides that have been "under evaluation" into the main section. Please send one of us a PM and let us know if you write a guide that is ready to be moved.

    The general criterion for a guide to be considered finished is:
    1. The first post is reasonably up to date.
    2. The thread is active.
    As part of these changes, everyone who has authored a guide that is now marked as a "finished guide" has been awarded the super prestigious "guide author" medal. In no particular order, these are:


    Congratulations!

    @all authors: could you remove the "WIP" from your guide title if it's now in the main section please :)

    That said, guides certain select guides that are still active (eg. the Bastet guide) won't get moved into the "archived section" because the threads are still active, even if the original posts are not up-to-date. Sorry, authors of these guides don't get a medal (hint hint, all you need to do it update your first post, hint hint)

    Finally, a little remark: It is possible some of you may disagree with our decisions (I may even have simply forgotten someone). If you do, please send me (or one of the other moderators) a PM explaining why we are wrong. Please do not complain in this thread. This is because (a) we may not read it and (b) this thread should be about congratulating people, not whining. :D

    --- thanks, the mods :)

    Thank you!! Happy now :D
    I hope Tsubaki will stay INSIDE the meta a bit longer haha

    This also motivated me to write more guides. Are a YY or a Gremory guide still needed??

    PS: gorgeous beard you have there.

    Gremory yes! You should totally go for it. I got some ideas for it too if you want them for those with less ideal builds! (Aka, no typhon's lol).

    @symplecto Thanks! And also thanks to @Niteblooded for thinking about us that helped with the monogreen guide. You truly deserve the most credit for inspiring us to keep the thread alive and organizing everything in it :)

    i apologize in advance if im in the wrong place. I have been playing almost a month and have hit a point where i have no clue exactly what to do from here. I saved my stones and used them during latest God fest and a few before that. I seem to have a decent leader or two but im unsure who exactly to use or if i have anyone else thats decent to start focusing on or an element or type of team. Any ideas would be appreciated. image.png

    I looked over and didn't see the "Highly Ranked" metal on @Derpinator .... I could have sworn he was over rank 500.
    So ... he could be missing THAT medal, and in which case @symplecto could just add it to Derpinator's collection. o_O

    While I'm honored to have been awarded a badge, I have to say I don't feel like I deserve it. I took over the Green Sonia guide from @Derpinator who was going to be taking a break from the game, and honestly, 95% of the content in my guide was actually created by Derp (and indeed, directly copied from his original guide HERE). Then alas, I found that real life has caused me to not be able to maintain the guide in any kind of reasonable manner since I took the reins.

    If you want to leave the badge in place, feel free, but I won't complain if you choose to remove it... I honestly don't feel like I earned it.

    I know I thanked you in "And the Medal Goes to..." thread but I really want to say it again. Thanks for giving Carlos, Nocutename and EvilEye the badge medal as well. They deserve it and are great examples of how this forum has some truly good people on it.
