How-To: Bracket Conversion

From Liquipedia StarCraft 2 Wiki


We currently only support bot-based conversion for 1v1 Brackets. Other (e.g. Team) Brackets have to be changed manually. It is reccomended to wait with the conversion for the 2SE Bracket.

If you want to convert a Bracket please follow the following steps:

  1. Find the new name of the Bracket. (For help see here.)
  2. Check if the new template for the Bracket exists by going to the Bracket's template page on commons. (e.g. for bracket/2 go to Template:Bracket/2)
    • If it does not exist ask a user with Reviewer+ rights to create it for you.
  3. Check if the default mapping works for this Bracket by changing atleast 2 Brackets to its Legacy form. (More about how Legacy Brackets work below.)
    • If Problems should occur a custom mapping has to be created for this Bracket.
    • Once the custom mapping has been created please start with point 3 again. (Adjusting the custom mapping in Case of Problems.)
  4. Ask a user with Reviewer+ rights to initiate the bot conversion via the #bracket-template-conversion channel on the LP Discord.
  5. Give the Old Brackets Template the deprecated tag by adding {{Deprecated|notalk=true|NAME OF THE NEW BRACKET}} (e.g. for the {{2SEBracket}}: {{Deprecated|notalk=true|Bracket/2}}) to the OLD Brackets page (inside the part that gets transcluded!).
  6. Wait for the Bot to convert all instances of this Bracket.

Legacy Brackets[edit]

Legacy Bracket calls differ from the old Bracket calls only in the Template and a few additional parameters.

Basically the Template call will be replaced with

{{LegacyBracket|NEW BRACKET NAME|OLD BRACKET NAME|id=UNIQUE ID OF THE BRACKET|type=solo
