To make tournament pages more consistent in regards to placements, I propose wifi tournaments to include placements up to:

  • Top 12 for C-tiers
  • Top 16 for B-tiers
  • Top 24 for A-tiers
  • Top 32 for S-tiers

A lot of top 64 entrants have red-linked names and have smashers unable to replicate these sorts of feats. In other words, a top 64 at [INSERT WIFI TOURNAMENT HERE] means this is their only significant feat. MemeDedede (talk) 16:11, February 28, 2021 (EST)



  1. Oppose. There should never be set rules for how far a tournament bracket should go since it's usually case-by-case. For example, Soaked Series Invitational goes up to top 97 because of how many notable players are present. If there are players who aren't notable but placed high at one or two tournaments, they should have their redlinks removed instead. CookiesCnC Signature.pngCreme 16:22, February 28, 2021 (EST)
  2. Oppose: Cookies is spot on here, how deep a rankings should be covered on an article is highly dependent on just how stacked the tourney it was itself, and really there's nothing wrong with having "excessive results" on a tourney page, ideally it may even be acceptable to include the entire results! Just no one really wants to put in the work to write down the hundreds or even thousands of 2-2ers and worse that make up the lower end results. The best practice is once you reached a threshold in a tourney's results' documentation where you get people who currently wouldn't merit a smasher article here, you just stop automatically linking everyone who doesn't have an article from that point forward.

  5. Mega Oppose It's based on entrants and red links, not c-tiers or s-tiers. For example, EV0 2019 is an S-tier and it goes up above the top 128 boundaries of being an s-tier and pushing the limits of "Top 32 for S-tiers". There are others like The Box who also fit the category of pushing the limits of "Top 32 for S-tiers". So yeah basically this is being opposed fr. Howplayz 18:59, March 8, 2021 (EST)
