Liquipedia:Notability Guidelines

From Liquipedia PUBG 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. 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. 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 questions regarding these guidelines, please join our Discord Discord and leave a message in the #pubg channel.

Guidelines[edit]

These guidelines were last updated on March 27, 2022

Player/Team Point System[edit]

Points are awarded as follows:

  • Teams and Players pages can be instantly created only after they have qualified to a World Championship event.
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5 - 8th 9 - 12th Any
S-Tier 10 5 3 1
A-Tier 7 3 2
B-Tier 3 2
C-Tier 2 1
D-Tier 1

Official Global Championships[edit]

Main Events in the following series are considered "Official Global Championships":

    • PUBG Global Championship
    • PUBG Nations Cup
    • PUBG Global Invitational

Players[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 151 or more points through the above stated points criteria and has minimum earnings of $3,000 USD.
  • Championships: Participated in an "Official Global Championship".
  • Sponsored: If the player is a notable member of a major organisation.


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

1 Reaching the points limit solely from Monthly and Weekly events doesn't grant notability.

Coaches[edit]

For Coaches, the same guidelines as Players apply (winnings are equally counted as one fourth of the team winnings)

Other Organization members[edit]

Pages for other organization members such as Managers or Founders are always up to administrators' discretion and will only be considered if the person has been playing or coaching at a professional level previously.

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: If the team has achieved 101 or more points through the above stated points criteria and has minimum earnings of $10,000 USD .
  • Championships: Participated in an "Official Global Championship".
  • Well-Established Organization: The team is a well-established esports organization with highly notable results in other esports;
    • (e.g. Other International event such as IeSF, WESG and M.E.O. which are often labelled World Championship are NOT consider a legitimate World Champion-level of representative)
    • Preferably with pages on the other Liquipedia wikis as well, Any other titles that Liquipedia does not covered will be excluded;


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

1 Reaching the points limit solely from Monthly and Weekly events doesn't grant notability.

Orgless Teams[edit]

As we would hope for every notable roster to find an organization, page creation for teams without an organization may be delayed despite their notability. The reason for this is that we do not want to have many pages for teams who have joined an organization shortly after the creation of the page, making it therefore less usable, since the team name is permanently retired in most instances. For example, a page for a team qualified for very notable A-Tier Tournaments or S-Tier Tournaments will typically be delayed until 2-3 days before the start of the event.

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 Tencent All 25 pts
S-Tier PUBG Corp. All 25 pts
A-Tier Offline 10 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 %
Remote Work in an Offline Event 50%
Secondary Language 50%
Points Requirements
Page Type Points
Existing Pages No Requirement
New Pages 25 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.

Events[edit]

Tournament and League pages can always be created if the event meets certain criteria. The following things should ALL be met for a tournament to receive a page on the wiki:

  • A prize pool of at least $1,000 USD across the event
    • Tournaments with prize lowered than that are considered out of coverage scope and may or may not be put into D-Tier Tournaments.
Note: This accounts solely for prize money paid out directly in cash, for example via bank transfer or PayPal. Other payment methods such as cryptocurrencies, coupons, in-game currencies or hardware prizes do not add up to the $2,000 USD threshold. Exceptions can only be made upon administrators' discretion and only if the event features highly notable teams.
  • The tournament (or part of the tournament to be covered) features a majority of players and teams who already have multiple prior participations in events that have been covered on Liquipedia

In addition to this, events without any prize pool which act as a qualifier for a large tournament can also be added.

Required Information[edit]

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
        • 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[edit]

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[edit]

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.

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.
