Liquipedia:Notability Guidelines

From Liquipedia Free Fire Wiki

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

Sadly, not everything can or should be added to the wiki. We want all our pages to be as up-to-date as possible and to meet our quality standards. 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. Additionally, we strive to have all pages meet a certain level of notability to current fans of the game or those wanting to research its history. 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 Free Fire as defined by the guidelines below. As such, some pages will be rejected due to a lack of quality or relevance. Any pages that do not meet these guidelines will NOT be deleted, but will be moved to your userspace.

If you have any inquiries regarding these guidelines, please join our Discord Discord and leave a message in the #freefire channel.

Tier 1 Exclusion List[edit]

  • Any influencers, streamers and participants that is one-off from other games in all Tier 1 events.

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: The player has achieved notable results according to the points criteria as defined in the Points Table above, and has minimum earnings of $3,000 USD;
  • Sponsored: If the player is a notable member of a major organisation.


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

Teams[edit]

Teams may receive pages when they surpass a certain threshold of notability. Check the bullet points below. Please note that notable results will generally be the primary determinant of notability, however if your chosen team fits one of these, then they may be notable to warrant a page on this wiki.

  • Achievements: The team has notable results according to the points criteria as defined in the Points Table above, and minimum earnings of $5,000 USD;
  • Well-Established Organization: The team is a well-established esports organization with highly notable results in other esports;
    • (e.g. an International Champion from official Dev/Publisher-backed championships such as The International would apply. Other Worlds-alike event such as IeSF, WESG and M.E.O. are not considered as a World Champion-level of representative)
    • Preferably with pages on the other Liquipedia wikis as well, Any other titles that is not covered by Liquipedia will be excluded;


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

Broadcast Talents[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
Tier 1 Any 25 pts
Tier 2 Offline 10 pts
Online 7 pts
Tier 3 Offline 5 pts
Online 4 pts
Tier 4 Offline 3 pts
Online 2 pts
Other Any 1 pts
Points Modifiers
Modifier Resulting %
Remote Work in an Offline Event 50%
Secondary Language 50%

Broadcast Talents will require 25 points of notability points to be eligible for a page. The tables above show how the points requirements are calculated to meet notability. 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.

Events[edit]

Tournament and League pages can always be created if the event meets certain criteria and is also up to the editors/administrators' discretion. The following things should ALL be met for a tournament to receive a page on the wiki:

  • A total prizepool of at least $1,000 USD across the event.
    • Scrims/Show Matches events that are not Garena official will not be added.


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

Required Information

For a tournament to be covered properly, the following details should ALL be present:

  • Tournament announcement on social media or news platforms at minimum 10 days ahead of the tournament start
  • Basic tournamant information which includes ALL of:
    • Full tournament name
    • Tournament Logo, as a high resolution transparent .png file or a vector file
      Note: Either one version suitable for both light and dark backgrounds, or a separate version for each
    • Commentators of the event (at least the main broadcast language)
    • Start and End Date of the tournament
    • Social Media accounts
    • Tournament format
  • Announcement of event sponsors stating their involvement in the tournament
  • A detailed rulebook containing ALL of the following:
    • Full detailed tournament format, including details such as map pool, etc.
    • Prize Money distribution
    • All other details describing how the event will be conducted
  • A detailed schedule document containing ALL of the following:
    • If applicable, group seeding
    • Matchups with the date, time, and time zone when they will take place
  • A roster document containing ALL of the following:
    • Team Name
    • Team Logo
    • Detailed information on players, coaches and substitutes used throughout the event
      • Required information for each person are:
        • In-game name (IGN)
        • Nationality

Should a large majority of these not be present 48 hours ahead of the first match in the tournament, we provide no guarantee that the tournament page is ready when the tournament begins.

For any tournament to be added after its conclusion, not all details are required, as long as it is possible to have coverage without any critical details such as prize money, rosters or results missing.

Limitation of Coverage

As many tournaments feature an open sign-up process or a very large number of participants, the coverage of a tournament will not always cover the entirety of an event, but rather all important parts of a tournament. Important parts of a tournament are:

  • Stages that are relevant for prize money
  • Stages that feature many notable participants

The first round/stage of online events with an open-signup process should almost always be skipped.
Events which are played entirely offline may see additional rounds/stages covered, compared to events fully played online.

Event Removal

Liquipedia admins reserve the right to remove any tournament without any explanations at any Stage of an event. Additionally, Liquipedia admins can deny the coverage of any tournament ahead of its start, should tournament organizers approach editors with the intent to get their event added to the wiki.

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.
