Liquipedia:Notability Guidelines

From Liquipedia Rocket League 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 Rocket League 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.

Guidelines[edit]

Tournaments[edit]

Teams with pages per tournament tier, %

At Liquipedia RL we have observed a relationship between the liquipedia tier of tournaments and the number of participants with a Liquipedia page. You can see this relationship in the chart above. We use this chart to determine whether any new incoming tournaments are notable, and what their liquipedia tier should be (along with a few other factors, such as prize pool).

You can calculate this for a tournament yourself, and receive a guess of the liquipedia tier it should belong in (and whether it's notable in the first place), using our calculator.

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, check the Notability Checker to see a player's notability.
  • 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 well-established esports organization.

Coaches[edit]

Coaches are allowed a page if they fulfill one of the following criteria:

  • Qualify with a team for an RLCS Regional in North America, Europe, South America or Oceania
  • Reach Top 12 in an RLCS Regional in Middle East & North Africa
  • Reach Top 8 in an RLCS Regional in APAC South, APAC North or Sub-Saharan Africa

Teams[edit]

When to create:[edit]

If the team fulfills one of the following:

  • The team has notable results; check the Notability Checker to see a team's notability.
  • The team is a well-established esports organization with a number of sponsors, preferably with pages on the other Liquipedia wikis as well.

College/University Guidelines (Work In Progress)[edit]

RLCS Guidelines from Season 2021-22[edit]

Legacy Regions[edit]

  • Legacy Regions include Europe, North America, Oceania and South America.
  • All players and teams that qualify for an RLCS regional are allowed pages if they don't have one yet.

New Regions[edit]

  • New Regions include Middle East/North Africa, Asia-Pacific South, Asia-Pacific North and Sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Players/teams from Middle East/North Africa are allowed a page if they fulfill one of the following criteria:
    • Reach Top 12 of a Regional
    • Qualify for all three events of a split (for teams: the team must consist of the same roster in all three events)
  • Players/teams from Asia-Pacific South, Asia-Pacific North and Sub-Saharan Africa are allowed a page if they fulfill one of the following criteria:
    • Reach Top 8 of a Regional
    • Qualify for all three events of a split (for teams: the team must consist of the same roster in all three events)
  • Reasons for this include:
    • The sheer amount of pages that would be required to be made straight away if this wiki covered all 16 teams.
    • Immediate introduction to RLCS for 16 teams per event, where in the past all regions would start with 8 teams, it would create a high upsurge of players that contributors would need to keep track of for constant updates, such as their movement around teams (transfers).
  • This benchmark will be re-evaluated frequently during the season to see if the requirements can be lowered to open up the gates for more players/teams to have a page.
  • Existing player/team pages for those 4 regions are left untouched.

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 broadcasted 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]

Ideally we want information on every map that is used in competitive Rocket League.

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.
