Roster Changes

These are the steps that you should take to fully update our wiki in the case of a roster change.

  1. Front Page:
    • Make a news item announcing the roster change.
  2. Player Page:
    • Update the player's infobox team history, including the appropriate date (just month and year).
    • Update the player's infobox current team.
    • Update the introductory sentence at the top of the page.
    • Update the player's bio. Include relevant information related to the roster change (for example, if player A is added to the roster of team X because player B was dropped from the starting lineup, you would mention player B in player A's bio).
    • Update the player's social media links if applicable.
    • Update the player's stream link if applicable.
    • Update the player's list of alternate IDs if applicable.
  3. Team Page:
    • Update the roster, either adding a player to the starting roster, changing the information, or moving the player to the list of former players.
    • Update the timeline section, including a reference.
    • Update the team history section, including relevant details and a reference.
  4. Former Team Page:
    • If the player is currently a free agent (i.e. the player leaving edit was already completed):
      • Add a |newteam= in the Former Players section.
    • If this is a direct move from one team to another:
      • Move the player to Former Players, add a leave date, and add a new team.
      • Update the timeline section, including a reference if possible.
  5. Roster Portal (only applies if it's preseason or midseason):
    • Update the Confirmed Changes section. If this player switched regions, update on both pages.
    • If there were any rumors involving this change, mark them as confirmed or disproven (or unsuccessful), including a reference.
    • Update the Current Rosters page if applicable.
    • Update the Rumored Rosters page to confirm the move if applicable.


  • December 13th, 2017 - Roster Navboxes are no longer needed to be updated as they work with Cargo. If a roster navbox doesn't update when you think it should, please contact River to do a blank edit of the page.

Tournament Page Creation

  1. Tournament Page:
    • Create it using the tournament page prefill.
  2. Templates:

Team Formation

These are the steps you should take to fully update our wiki when a new team is created (or when you are creating a page for a team that we did not yet have a page for).

  1. Check to see if the team meets our notability guidelines.
  2. Team page:
    • If it does, create the page for the team using the team template.
    • Create all relevant redirects (e.g. TSM to Team SoloMid)
    • Make a roster navbox for the team -- Explanation.
  3. Relevant Templates:
    • Add the team name/names to the teamnames template: {{Teamnames}} -- Explanation.
    • Add a 60-pixel-wide, 25-pixel-tall, transparent-background at [Teamshortname]logo_std.png -- Explanation.
    • Add the team logo to the teamimage template: {{TeamImage}} (following the guidelines) -- Explanation.
  4. CargoConcept:
  5. Other:
    • Update the appropriate page in the teams portal.
    • Follow the guidelines in the roster changes section for updating player pages reflecting their joining the team.
    • If the team was just formed, created a front-page news item about the formation.

Team Disbanding

These are the steps you should take to fully update our wiki when a team is disbanded.

  1. Add the argument |isdisbanded=true in the infobox (or |isrenamed= or |neworg= as appropriate).
  2. Move the team to the disbanded teams section of the appropriate page in the teams portal.
  3. Update the text in the team's history, and follow the guidelines in the roster changes section for updating player pages reflecting their leaving the team.
  4. Update the front-page news.
  5. If this was the sister team of another team, update the CargoConcept to move this team to inactive.

Making a New Player Page

  1. Player Page:
    • Make the player page.

The rest applies if and only if the player has at least one game recorded on the site in a scoreboard. If not, then please go back and do these steps once they do have a game recorded in a scoreboard.

  1. Concept:
    • Create the concept using {{PlayerGamesConcept}}. See documentation there. Remember to include alternate spellings/capitalizations/nicknames if they have them!
  2. Subpages:
    • Create the stats page using {{CareerPlayerStats}}.
    • Create the match history using {{MatchHistoryPlayer}}.
    • If applicable, create the individual year stats pages using {{IPS}}. If you're not sure if this applies, ask River.
    • If the player's name should be lowercase, remember to use {{lowercase}} on the subpages also.

Player Namechanges

  1. Team Page:
    • Change the player's name in the team's starting roster & navbox
    • Write in the team's timeline that the player namechanged (this is new as of 2016)
  2. Player Page:
    • Move the player's page to the new URL. Leave behind a redirect.
    • Update the infobox to state the player's new ingame name.
    • Add the player's old IGN to the list of alternate IDs.
    • Write a line in the biography about the switch.
    • Change the introduction and the first line of the biography if it doesn't use {{StandardBioSentence}}, where the player's name is in quotes in the middle of their IRL name. Do not change the name anywhere else in the biography.
  3. Player Subpages:
    • If the player has a match history page or stats pages, don't move them, that's really bad for the server. Instead make new pages at the new location & make the old pages redirect.
    • Change the argument of the match history and career stats pages to be the new name. Move, but otherwise do not edit yearly stats pages since these must match the scoreboard names.
    • If {{lowercase}} applies, add or remove this to each subpage.
  4. Concept:
    • If the player has a mh or stats page, they also have a concept. Go to Concept:playername/Games and move that to Concept:newplayername/Games LEAVING BEHIND A REDIRECT.
    • Add the new name as an additional argument of {{PlayerGamesConcept}}. Include all possible realistic capitalizations that the player might use.
  5. Double Redirects:

Champion Release (to the PBE)

These are the steps you should take to fully update our wiki when a new champion is released to the PBE.

  1. Create a new champion page using this template as a rough guide.
  2. Upload all necessary images in .png format, making sure to include {{Fairuse}} in the description. Images include:
    • Skill icons (naming convention: "Power Chord.png")
    • Splash art (naming convention: "Sona Splash 0.png")
    • Thumbnail (naming convention: "SonaSquare.png") -- if not available, use our placeholder.
  3. Add to {{Champion}}
  4. Add to Property:Champion

Patch Notes

These are the steps you should take to fully update our wiki when a new patch is released.

  1. Front Page:
    • If the patch is released, update the news.
  2. Patch Notes Page
    • SoonTM

Adding A New Set of Scoreboards

This is how to set up scoreboards for a tournament that doesn't have scoreboards yet.

  1. Determine the tournament's scoreboard name. This will be of the form <tournament abbreviation> <year/season> <split> <period>. For example, NA LCS 2016 Spring or IEM Season 10 World Championship or OPL 2016 Split 1 Playoffs or World Championship 2015 or EU Regional Finals 2016.
  2. Create Concept:<tournament name>. Remember to include the code {{TSC}}!
  3. Create a redirect from <tournament name> to the tournament's overview page.
  4. Add <tournament name> to the appropriate template in the metadata templates category and define its variables appropriately (if it's an ongoing league, this has probably been done for you already unless it's the start of a new year).
  5. Create the match history, champion stats, and player stats pages once one scoreboard has been created.
  6. If applicable, create and/or add to the players' statistics tabs (NA LCS, EU LCS, LCK, LPL, LMS, NACS, EUCS, CBLOL).
