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 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 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, 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.

You can also use our Notability Checker to check whether a player is notable or not.

Teams[edit]

When to create

If the team fulfills one 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;

You can also use our Notability Checker to check whether a team is notable or not.

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]

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

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.
