    This is a thread that will contain all exceptional guides for all heroes posted here in GS. This is inspired by xpforever's exceptional Medusa guide. I have already asked for permission for this thread to be stickied

    The purpose for this thread is to act as a quick table of contents of guides for all heroes.

    I still do not have any criteria for future guides to be accepted and posted here and I will ask later for help in doing so, preferably from the players who are in the upper echelon of MMR brackets and, if possible, professional players or retired professional players.

    This thread will be open to suggestions on which guides deserve to be here. Guide categories per role on heroes that fill multiple roles will be added as soon as suggestions flow in.

    However, detailed guides are needed. "TLDR" guides will not be added.

    A big thank you to silvercover for the future sticky.

    this would be great if you could make it table format like the one in guides.

    unfortunately I dont know how to myself. maybe some other mod knows or you can get around to learning how to do it yourself.

    stickied for now.

    My internet has been absolute shit over these last few days so I wasn't able to practice using tables here in PD for this thread.

    I've already asked someone for help, just waiting for a response.

    Get one of those guys in Suggestion forums to help with fancy templates and tables :)

    Can anyone make guides? Always wanted to make a guide for my favorite heroes: Kunkka and CM!

    Use Excel to modify. The columns are basically

    HERO | GUIDE LINK

    using Excel cell formula of:

    [NOPARSE]=IF(OR(A2="Abbadon",A2="Anti-Mage",A2="Ancient Apparition"),CONCATENATE("[TABLE]",A2,"|",B2), IF(OR(A2="Wraith King",A2="Weaver",A2="Zeus"), CONCATENATE("", A2, "|", B2,"[/TABLE]"), CONCATENATE("", A2, "|", B2)))[/NOPARSE]

    Then just dragged down.

    great stuff man, would be awsome if some guides could also cover the unique playstyles of certain pros with some heroes.

    in example, arteezy playing antimage, or agressif' playing PL, etc etc... you get the point

    You're a lifesaver

    I appreciate this a lot. LIKE A LOT

    Now I will have to wait for my net to stabilize so I can download the file

    @ASG

    They're not ported yet, I would always assume they will be tweaked before the official release so I'm simply waiting.

    @Kinge

    I do not want to have memes here unfortunately. Srs business :catprone

    @TRAX

    I will implement those varying roles when we get a specific type of guide that gives us details. For now, I'll leave it as it is.

    Finally figured out how to table...

    Ok, shameful display time: I fiddled a shit ton in Excel, trying to get how Tables work and the cell functions and formulas for days (fuck, I wish I didn't ignore Computer lessons in high school) and I couldn't get everything to work.

    So I wondered how the fuck did Siraraz make a table in PD. Turns out, I just had to copy paste what he posted here..

    FUCK. ME.

    Rofl.

    I might help in making guides (my old guide hasn't been updated for like years, and I'm still procrastinating, hue)

    Haha, yeah. I made it easy for you. You just need to paste the column after editing the left hand side with URLs. It's how I handle editing my BBCode for larger posts.

    But it's only PlayDotA threads? Not outside ones?

    Ember Spirit: https://slashstrikedota.wordpress.com/2015/03/21/slashstrikes-guide-to-ember-spirit/

    Legion Commander: https://slashstrikedota.wordpress.com/2015/09/03/slashstrikes-guide-to-legion-commander/

    As for criteria, not a massive wall of text for starters. Use of headings to distinguish sections is nice. So basically acceptable formatting. Doesn't need to be fancy.

    Icons probably optional. They enhance the guide, but not necessary.

    Up-to-dateness as well.

    Non-PD forum guides are acceptable.
