eSports Task Force[edit]
Welcome to the eSports Task Force of WikiProject Video games! We are a group dedicated to creating and improving articles related to electronic sports on Wikipedia.

If you have any questions, please ask them on our discussion page, or by contacting participants of the task force.

  • This task force exists to create, maintain, and improve articles related to electronic sports.

Article criteria[edit]

Specific criteria for editing eSports articles still need to be decided on. However, here are some guidelines in the meantime:

  • Be sure to always write from a neutral point of view. Be aware of your own biases. For example, it can be easy to write praisingly about your favorite player. Instead, write objectively about the player's notable accomplishments.
  • Make notability apparent. Avoid trivial facts and instead focus on important achievements. For example, if a player has won an international tournament, their article definitely should mention it.
  • Search for good sources and interesting facts. The topic of eSports is covered very well on the web, so we should take advantage of this.
  • Articles on professional gamers should be titled according to the gamer's real-life name rather than a pseudonym.

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
Organizational tasks
  • Decide whether articles on eSports games are within the scope of this task force.
  • If it is decided we should, we will also need to decide which games are within the task force's scope; that is, how to define a game as an eSports game.
  • Decide on notability guidelines for professional players.

If an article is within the scope of this task force, please include the following template on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Video games|eSports=yes}}
