Leaguepedia | League of Legends Esports Wiki

We can't have a page for literally everyone who has ever played a game of League of Legends -- or even for everyone who has played in a single prized tournament -- we simply cannot maintain that many pages, and most pages would never be visited. So in order to maintain quality within our wiki, we have a set of "notability guidelines" that we follow to determine whether a player (or team) gets a page.

Sitewide Guidelines[]

We Are Not A Resume Site[]

The guiding principle of these guidelines is simple: We are not a resume site. Resumes exist for the benefit of their subject; they are curated and owned by their subject, and few people other than their subject are interested in them. We are the opposite. We create and curate wiki pages for an audience primarily excluding their subjects. If you are asking for a wiki page to be made about yourself, the primary goal should not be to showcase your own achievements, but rather to inform other people about your career. We will judge the notability based on how interested we think the community is in learning about your accomplishments, and your goals of getting hired are not relevant.

For this reason, we implore teams and other organizations to not consider candidates' Leaguepedia pages when making hiring decisions. Doing so is disastrous for our editing staff.

Please keep in mind, however, that anyone is welcome to create a Self page.

Teams[]

A team must meet at least one of the following requirements to have a wiki page created:
  • Participation in a Premier event
  • 2 top 4 placements in Major events
  • 4 top 2 placements in Minor events such as open qualifiers

Players[]

A player must meet at least one of the following requirements to have a wiki page created:
  • Has played in at least one game in a premier event
  • Is currently on the starting roster for a team that qualifies for a wiki page and is actively playing in a major or premier event
  • Is currently an official sub for a team that has a wiki page and is actively playing in a premier event in a premier region
  • If a player was previously a member of a team with a wiki page but did not participate in at least one premier event with that team (started in at least one game), they no longer qualify for a page, and we will not create one retroactively. However, we will not delete already-created pages (assuming they properly met notability guidelines at time of creation).

Support Staff[]

We will make pages for a coach who either:
  • Is the primary coach for a premier team (top-level Riot circuit) in their region
  • This means LEC/LCS/LCK etc and does NOT include national leagues.
  • Challenger circuit participation does not count in any way towards qualifying for a page for support staff members.
  • We do not make pages for support staff that are not recognized officially by Riot except in extreme circumstances.

Tournaments[]

We are not obligated to create pages for all monthly and weekly events. This section just defines what that means. If your event is considered too low-level for inclusion, we will not cover it.

Tournaments will be categorized into Premier/Major/Minor by the following rules:
  • Premier Tournaments:
  • It is part of the primary circuit of any region.
  • It is part of the secondary circuit of any non-Wildcard region (North America, Europe, Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong & Macao). European Regional Leagues fall in this category.
  • It is an offline tournament that features teams out of the premier circuit of any non-Wildcard region.
  • Major Tournaments:
  • It is part of the secondary circuit of any Wildcard region.
  • The tournament has a prizepool of over $ 10,000 USD ($ 5,000 USD for tournaments before the start of the 2014 Season).
  • Minor Tournaments:
  • Tournaments that don't qualify as Premier or Major Tournaments.
  • Open qualifiers for major/premier events.
  • Monthly and Weekly Tournaments:
  • Minor tournaments that take place every month/every week.

Region-Specific Guidelines[]

Please note that these guidelines are subject to change and cannot necessarily be applied retroactively. Futhermore, already existing pages for other people/orgs do not affect the notability of another entity. These are just guidelines, and the final decision is always up to the respective editor's discretion.
