How-To: New Bracket System on the Arena of Valor wiki

From Liquipedia Arena of Valor Wiki


General Structure of the New Bracket System[edit]

New Brackets/MatchLists are now generally entered the following way:

Bracket[edit]

{{bracket|<<<which bracket>>>|id=<<<unique MatchGroupID>>>|entryWidth=<<<You can increase length of bracket by adding numbers, is optional>>>
|RxMy={{Match
	|date=
	|other match params (Streams, Vetos,)
	|finished= (when True is applied, match is then recognized complete)
	|opponent1={{<<<OpponentTemplate>>>|<<<OpponentData>>>|score=X}}
	|opponent2={{<<<OpponentTemplate>>>|<<<OpponentData>>>|score=X}}
	|map1={{Map|team1side=<<<red/blue>>>|team2side=<<<red/blue>>>
	|t1h1=X|t1h2=X|t1h3=X|t1h4=X|t1h5=X
	|t2h1=X|t2h2=X|t2h3=X|t2h4=X|t2h5=X
	|t1b1=X|t1b2=X|t1b3=X|t1b4=X|t1b5=X
	|t2b1=X|t2b2=X|t2b3=X|t2b4=X|t2b5=X
	|winner=<<<1/2>>>
	|comment=|vod=}}
}}

}}
  • RxMy (e.g. R1M1) indicates it is Match y of Round x. (Just like the RxGydetails (e.g. R1G1details) we used for the Match details in the old brackets.)

MatchList[edit]

{{matchlist|id=<<<unique MatchGroupID>>>|entryWidth=<<<Numbers that must match GroupTableLeague's width>>>
|My={{Match
	|date=
	|other match params (Streams, Vetos,)
	|finished= (when True is applied, match is then recognized complete)
	|opponent1={{<<<OpponentTemplate>>>|<<<OpponentData>>>|score=X}}
	|opponent2={{<<<OpponentTemplate>>>|<<<OpponentData>>>|score=X}}
	|map1={{Map|team1side=<<<red/blue>>>|team2side=<<<red/blue>>>
	|t1h1=X|t1h2=X|t1h3=X|t1h4=X|t1h5=X
	|t2h1=X|t2h2=X|t2h3=X|t2h4=X|t2h5=X
	|t1b1=X|t1b2=X|t1b3=X|t1b4=X|t1b5=X
	|t2b1=X|t2b2=X|t2b3=X|t2b4=X|t2b5=X
	|winner=<<<1/2>>>
	|comment=|vod=}}
}}

}}
  • My indicates it is Match y of the MatchList.


As one can easily see regarding entering Data the differences between Brackets and MatchLists become marginal.

How-To: Copy-Paste[edit]

The provided Copy-Paste-Code is just a rudimentary framework, you can always add additional information with the parameters explained in the following sections.
Into the |opponent1 (and |opponent2) parameter you have to fill in the OpponentTemplate according to the OpponentType, for more information see here.

MatchLists[edit]

For MatchLists please use the MatchList Generator.
For other MatchLists just copy the below Copy-Paste-Template ( Change TeamOpponent to SoloOpponent for 1v1 or Individual events ):
{{matchlist|id=<<<unique ID>>>
|M1={{Match
|opponent1={{TeamOpponent|score=| }}
|opponent2={{TeamOpponent|score=| }}
|finished=true|date=
|twitch=|youtube
|map1={{Map|team1side=|team2side=
        |t1h1=|t1h2=|t1h3=|t1h4=|t1h5=
        |t2h1=|t2h2=|t2h3=|t2h4=|t2h5=
        |length=|winner=
        |vod=
}}
}}

Brackets[edit]

For Brackets the new System provides a Copy-Paste-Template on the Brackets Page on Commons. (e.g. for 2SE Brackets (independent if it is 1v1/2v2/.../Team) the Copy-Paste-Code can be found at Template:Bracket/2#Template.)
There you only need to select "starcraft2" from the "Select Wiki" DropDown and you can already copy the Bracket you need. (Please keep in mind that Brackets get assigned unique IDs, hence if you should want to use the same Bracket several times you have to use the "Refresh" Button between copy pasting so that a new ID is generated.)

A List that provides the new Names for Brackets (if you know the old (e.g. 2SE) ones) can be found at Liquipedia:BracketUpdate/Legacy.
In addition to that for the most used Brackets you can get the Code generated via Special:RunQuery/BracketCopyPaste. This Generator has several more options compared to the Version on the Bracket pages.

Please keep in mind that the unique ID has to have exactly 10 Signs and those signs can be letters (A-Z, a-z) or numbers (0-9).

Transcluding a page that contains Brackets or MatchLists[edit]

with the new System transclusions of Brackets/MatchLists are not possible anymore. It would generate the same Bracket/MatchList with the same id and hence create problems (aka bad entries in LPDB.)

With the new System you just use {{ShowBracket|<<<id>>>}} (with the unique id of the Bracket/MatchList that should be displayed) instead.

Opponents[edit]

With the New Bracket System any Opponent Type can be matched against each other, this way it enables 1v2, 1v4, 1vTeam, ... Matches and Brackets.

For user purposes there exist 3 Types of Opponents:

  1. solo (One-Player Opponents, these are the Opponents you want to use for 1v1 Matches.)
  2. team (Team Opponents, these are the Opponents you want to use for Team Matches or a 2v2/3v3 tournaments.)
  3. literal (Literal Opponents, these can e.g. be used to indicate how Players drop down to the Lower Bracket.)


For Team Opponents the Player Data is retrieved automatically from {{TeamCard}}s. So for those Opponent Types to work the usage of Team Cards is a Requirement! For other Opponent Types the Player Data is specified in the Opponent Template call.

Usage[edit]

Opponents are defined by calling the according templates and entering the needed Data. You can either use the general {{Template:Opponent}} template and specify the type:

  1. for solo Opponents: {{Template:SoloOpponent}}
  2. for team Opponents: {{Template:TeamOpponent}}
  3. for literal Opponents: {{Template:LiteralOpponent}}

Parameters[edit]

|score= (Optional)
Overwrite the automatically calculated score with the set value for this Opponent. (Needed if you want to use score2 in case of Score Resets.)
For Team Matches with Sub-Matches scores become mandatory again.
solo Opponent[edit]

|name= (add after SoloOpponent)

Specify the DisplayName of the Player/Opponent.
|link= (Optional)
Used to specify the link of the Player should it not coincide with the DisplayName. (If the link is not specified AND a {{ParticipantTable}} is used the link will also be retrieved via the Variables the ParticipantTable sets.)
|flag= (Optional)
Used to specify the flag of the Player. If this is not set AND a {{ParticipantTable}} is used the flag will also be retrieved via the Variables the ParticipantTable sets.
