Liquipedia:Notability Guidelines

From Liquipedia Tetris 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, however they are considered to be of special importance to their local scene or to Tetris history as a whole. 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 Discord.

When is a page deserved?[edit]

Players will need 10 points to be considered for page creation. They will receive points for tournament placements as follows:

  • 10 points for a top 4 finish in A-Tier tournaments.
  • 5 points for a top 4 finish in B-Tier tournaments or a top 8 finish in A-Tier tournaments.
  • 2 points for a top 2 finish in C-Tier tournaments or a top 8 finish in B-Tier tournaments or a top 16 finish in A-Tier

Page creation will ultimately be always at administrators discretion.


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, according to the broad guidelines in When is a page deserved?, and has minimum earnings of $500 USD;
  • Sponsored: If the player is a notable member of a major organisation.

For players with non-romanized aliases (Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, etc) please make sure to create their page with the romanized version of their alias. In the case of their personal names, the player infobox supports both a romanized and non-romanized version.


Tournaments with cash prize should be added right away for documentary purposes. They are required to have a verifiable public source for results. Sources such as a website, a social media page or other third party platforms, need to provide such material and be kept up to date.

Game versions[edit]

Tetris contains a lot of different game versions, both as an official or unofficial title. Which also contains its own dedicated scene and a different scope of how the competitive scene looks. To adapt with this, Three main types of game versions are being designated:

  • Classic: The Classic NES (1989) game
  • Modern: Newer Games (e.g. Effect)
  • Others: Games that may not fit into the above types (e.g. Tetris 99)

Tiers guidelines[edit]

Each game has its own set of guidelines for which tier each tournament qualifies. S-Tier, A-Tier, B-Tier, and C-Tier include the tiers of most tournaments covered on this wiki. Each game has a typical prize pool for each of their tiers.

NameDescription (see the influential factors below for a more detailed list)ClassicModernOther
S-TierConsidered the Premier events in the scene's calendar. Often part of renowned Tournaments Series with multiple notable players. Sometimes with an Offline final stage and maybe open qualifiers at the start.TBDTBDTBD
A-TierConsidered the Major events in the scene. Part of a tournament series, one off grand events, or extensive Invitationals. Generally well populated with notable players. These can also be the top events for their Region.TBDTBDTBD
B-TierConsidered the Minor events in the scene. Often large open events for up and coming players with a greater focus on longer series. Can also be smaller invitationals with notable players. These can also be the top events for their Country.TBDTBDTBD
C-TierThe smallest events in the scene. Some notable players may compete in them but not many.TBDTBDTBD

The following table details the influencing factors beyond the prize pool taken into acccount when determining tiering for events. It is worth noting that events featuring highly uncompetitive settings, custom scenarios, or charity events will also receive the tier type Miscellaneous (Misc).

Highly InfluentialInfluentialLittle EffectOnly Detrimental

  • Number of participants.
  • Number of notable participants.
  • Number and size of Qualifiers.
  • If it's part of a prestigious series.
  • The number of invited participants in relation to qualified participants.

  • Organizer's prestige.
  • Size of the Prize pool awarded.
  • Whether the event is played online, partially offline, or entirely offline.
  • Importance of the event to a sub-community of the games (regionals, for example).

  • Prize pool distribution.
  • Format of the event.
  • Frequency of the events, yearly, monthly, weekly, etc.

  • Highly uncompetitive format.
  • Lack of information on the part of the Organizer.
  • A small number of participants with a small number of matches.

Keep in mind that events with no prize pool are deemed not notable under these guidelines.

However due to the nature of competitive Tetris may contain a notable event with no prize pool, events that applied under this definition can be brought up for discussion to be included on the wiki (per case basis). Creation of a non-prized event will ultimately be always at wiki discretion.

Broadcast Talent[edit]

Broadcast talent is defined as any member of a production of a stream or video related to a notable tournament. Casters, Hosts, Observers, Directors, etc.

Any of the following criteria must be true for a Broadcast Talent to be deemed notable. Worth noting that this is a work in progress list of criteria and may be subject to change in the future.

  • Participated in an A-Tier or greater event as part of the main broadcast team.
  • Participated in at least 3 B-Tier events as part of the main broadcast team.
  • Participated in at least 5 events, regardless of tier, and is a Twitch or YouTube content creator with either 50 average viewers or 500 average views/video
  • Participated in at least 10 events, regardless of tier, and is able to prove consistent 25+ viewership for those events. (scaling for more minor events)

Tournament Organizers[edit]

Tournament Organizers (TOs) are individuals or groups organizing tournaments. Entities administrating on behalf of another person or organization are considered admins and not a TO.

For an organizer to be given a Liquipedia page, they must meet all of the following criteria.

  • Organized tournaments with a combined prizepool of more than $10,000 USD in any tournament format tracked by Liquipedia.
  • Organized at least 3 notable Tournaments with at least 8 participants.

Note: It is implied that organizers are investing (money or labor) in the events they run, therefore they are not meant to be added to the sponsor field of {{Template:Infobox league}}.

User pages[edit]

Completely optional, but make your userpage a good indication of who you are!
