Liquipedia:Notability Guidelines

Please note that inclusion of pages in mainspace is ultimately up to the discretion of the Liquipedia staff

Sadly, not everything can be added to the wiki. We want all our pages to be as up-to-date as possible and to meet our quality standards in general. That is made harder the more pages are created, not to mention additional factors, such as the fact that lower ranked teams tend to not have social media where they announce transfers, and so on.

Now, these are not non-negotiable. This wiki contains coverage of certain teams, players and scenes that do not actually meet our guidelines, yet we allow them because there is an active volunteer(s) that keeps those pages of high-quality. This however does not mean that we will allow you to create a page for your team just because you say you will keep it up to date. On the other hand, if you were to be highly interested in, say, keeping the Spanish national scene up to date, then go ahead! In the cases where this is not the case however, all of this means we have to prioritise: we try to keep our coverage to just the top and the sub-top tier of competitive Counter-Strike as defined by the guidelines below. Any pages that do not meet these guidelines will not be deleted, but will be moved to your user space.

If you disagree with the decision for a certain page, please do come chat in our Discord.

Players[edit]

Who and what to add?[edit]

Players may receive their individual pages, as long as they surpass a certain threshold of notability. Check the bullet points below. If your chosen player fits at least one of these, then they are likely notable to warrant a page on this wiki.

  • Achievements: If the player has achieved notable results, see When is a page deserved?
  • Previous history: If the player was a pro-gamer in another game (Warcraft III, StarCraft: Brood War, StarCraft 2, ...)
  • Sponsored: If the player is a notable member of a major organisation.

To create a new player page, follow the Player Template.

Teams[edit]

To create a team page or not to create?[edit]

When to create

If the team fulfills two of the following:

  • The team has notable results, see When is a page deserved?
  • The team is a well-established esport organisation with a number of sponsors, preferably with pages on the other Liquipedia wikis as well;
  • At least three players with a Liquipedia page;

When not to create

  • No notable achievements
  • No website/social media

To create a new team page, you can use our Team page tutorial.

Leagues[edit]

Leagues and tournaments with a cash prize of at least $500 USD should be added right away for documentary purposes. Priority is given to tournaments with notable players and teams.

To create a new tournament page, you can follow our Tournament tutorial.

Broadcast Talent[edit]

Note: This is the first of our new set of notability guidelines and minor changes may be needed as we fine-tune them to our specific needs.
Event Points
Event Tier Type Points
S-Tier Offline 25 pts
A-Tier Offline 15 pts
Online 7 pts
B-Tier Offline 5 pts
Online 4 pts
C-Tier Offline 3 pts
Online 2 pts
Other Offline 1 pts
Online 1 pts
Points Modifiers
Modifier Resulting %
Valve Event 200%
Remote Work 50%
Secondary Language 50%
Points Requirements
Page Type Points
Existing Pages No Requirement
New Pages 50 pts

The tables on the left show how the points requirements to meet notability are calculated. Please keep in mind that they are only a guideline and that admin decisions are final until circumstances (new events broadcast or missing events added) change.

If the broadcast talent in question also has results as a player or coach, they will also be taken into consideration when notability is being determined.

Any pages existing prior to these new guidelines or any subsequent changes to them will not need to retroactively meet the new standards; they will be left untouched.

Maps[edit]

We try to accumulate as much information about maps as possible. Map pages usually include notable features.

User pages[edit]

Completely optional, but make your userpage a good indication of who you are! Feel free to be friendly or use some Userboxes to spruce things up.
