Notability Guidelines

From Liquipedia League of Legends Wiki

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

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 League of Legends 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]

Players may receive their individual pages, as long as they surpass a certain threshold of notability. We use a point system to determine whether a player is notable or not.

The first table shows the amount of points players receive for tournaments, while the second table shows how much points a player needs to become notable in their region. These points are adjusted for their regional tournament count, making the amount of effort required to become notable equal. Even though players are notable by making playoffs in a A-Tier event, they do receive points that are added up to their notability point count. These numbers can be used for their team notability, but no longer impact their player notability.

Point distribution[edit]

Event Tier Appearance Playoffs/Top 4
S-Tier 200 400
A-Tier 50 100
B-Tier 15 30
C-Tier 5 10
Other 1 2

Regional requirements[edit]

Region Point requirement
General 60 points
North America North America 100 points
South Korea Korea 40 points

Why do some regions require a different amount of points for notability?[edit]

The North American amateur circuit features a large amount of collegiate, open and proving grounds events. This added up to more than 25 events in 2021, which is a lot more tournaments to obtain points in, compared to Europe where most of the regional leagues work with a spring, summer and winter split. To compensate for this, North American players need more points to qualify for a page. This is the opposite in Korea, where players outside of the LCK and LCK Challengers League often only compete in monthlies and a seasonal LCK Academy Series Championship. This makes obtaining points a lot harder, which is why the threshold has been lowered.

Exceptions[edit]

There are a few exceptions to this point system, a player becomes notable right away if:

  • They compete in a league that directly feeds into the World Championship,
  • They compete in any of the 4 major region feeder series (LCS Academy, EU Masters, LDL and LCK Challengers League).

Teams[edit]

All teams that have competed in S-Tier and A-Tier tournaments are automatically eligible for a page due to them competing in a highly rated competition. This point distribution uses a similar threshold as playerpages, but account for the points of their current line-up combined, as well as the organization's historical results.

If a player has competed in a S-Tier event in their career, only their previous 2 years of competition will be counted in full points, while the other years of competition will be counted as 10%. This avoids the potential of a single player making a team notable unless they're still familiar names in the current competitive circuit.

An example on this points modifier: Samux signed with Wizards Club in 2022. He did not compete in 2020 and 2021, but he did compete in various S-Tier events from 2012 to 2019, which resulted in a total of 2544 points. Since those points were gained more than 2 years ago and through S-Tier events, they now only count for 10%, resulting in a total of 254 notability points added to the team.

Leagues and Tournaments[edit]

Professional leagues and tournaments should be added if they satisfy any of the following conditions:

  • Prize: The total prize pool for the event exceeds $2,500 USD.
  • Worlds: The event is part of the World Championships qualification structure.
  • Academy: The event is an academy league below a World Championships qualifying event, a European Regional League or ERL feeder, or a Scouting Grounds Circuit event.

To create a league or tournament page follow Tournament Tutorial or Tournament Template.

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.
