As some of you may know already, I am a reviewer for the AoE Liquipedia and alongside the other contributors, we have made changes to the Notability Guidelines.
If you are unfamiliar with what Liquipedia is, the short of it is that it’s a volunteer wiki dedicated to covering esports. For Age of Empires, it started in 2020, so with the release of AoE4 and the prospect of tournaments growing in 2022 we knew an update was needed to those guidelines.
This has been a two-month process of discussing the guidelines among contributors and scene experts. The key points are:
- You can now check a player’s notability with a notability checker. If they pass a certain point threshold, they are entitled to a page you make yourself or ask for in the LP discord.
- Age of Empires IV now has Tier guidelines, along with a new system for all tournament guidelines that aim to de-prioritize prize pools in favor of competitive settings and diverse events that help the scene as a whole grow.
- There are now clear guidelines for Tournament Organizers (and Admins), Casters, and Map creators/scripters.
Also, the contributor team can always do with more people helping keep the wiki updated and running! Anyone can edit LP, and we, the contributor team, are always available for any questions.
