Welcome to Esportspedia!

Esportspedia is a family of competitive eSports wikis. This one (LoL Esportspedia) focuses on League of Legends. We cover players, teams, tournaments, and more! The fact that we are a wiki means that, even though we have a staff, our existence relies on community contributions. That's you! In these pages, we'll guide you through how to get started contributing to Esportspedia -- whether you want to help out from time to time, apply to join our staff, or even just learn more about what we cover and how to find it!

What We Do

We record, store, and curate information about tournaments, teams, and players. Here's what you can expect to find (and remember always to look for tabs at the tops of pages!):

Tournaments

While we don't record all of this information for every single tournament, you can expect to find it for premier tournaments and some major tournaments.
  • Overview - Tournament structure, Results, Location, Prize Pool, External Links to Content and Information, etc.
  • Picks+Bans - Champion select, in the order it happened.
  • Scoreboards - A copy of the postgame scoreboard, including KDA, CS, Level, Gold (where possible), Items, etc.
  • VODs - In partnership with LoLEventVODs, we are beginning to catalog VODs in spoiler-free charts with links to champion select, game start, and postgame discussion. Highlights included where possible.
  • Infographs - For some tournaments, we will make infographs highlighting stats from various time intervals.
  • Other - for major tournaments, such as Worlds, we will include various other information, such as Travel Info, a Google calendar, or prediction contests.

Players

The amount of information that we have available for players varies a lot, but we try to include the following:
  • Basic info - server, role, competitive team history, etc.
  • Biography - Detail of their personal life and League of Legends career.
  • Trivia - Various facts about the player that don't fit well into a bio.
  • Achievements - Top placings in tournaments.
  • External links - To interviews, AMAs, articles, profiles, etc.
  • Statistics - For players who have played in certain Premier events, we have pages detailing their stats.

Teams

Again, the amount of information varies, but we cover:
  • Basic info - region, sponsors, etc.
  • Timeline and roster history.
  • List of achievements.
  • Statistics - We are starting to include pages of team statistics for premier teams.

Social Media

Follow us on social media! We are very active in particular on Twitter, and we also post to Facebook and Google+. Even if you don't necessarily use all of those networks, giving us a follow helps us out a lot, so we'd really appreciate it!
