I am nominating this for featured list status because I believe that it meets all of the featured list criteria. Competitive Smash is the biggest it's ever been - current COVID-related hiccup not withstanding - and this is a comprehensive list of every major offline tournament held in the game thus far. The list itself should be easy to maintain going forward, as when events are happening, there's an average of 2 or 3 majors a month.
The lede goes into quite a bit on how the prize money is different from other competitions - but the tables just show the full prize pool. Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski(talk • contribs) 19:40, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
On that end, is it worth adding the "winner's share?" Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski(talk • contribs) 19:40, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
I'd like something in the lede saying that the following lists cover S and A-Tier events, rather than just saying "major". Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski(talk • contribs) 19:40, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
I am responding to your comments in the order they appear above:
1. They do, but given names are not commonly used in esports. If you asked 100 competitive Smash fans who "Gavin Dempsey" or "Tyler Martins" were, most would have no idea; but ask them who "Tweek" and "Marss" were and they'd know. While WP:COMMONNAME refers to article titles, I think the sentiment translates to this as well.
2. I had tier list linked in the lead. I've copied the link into the caption.
4. I've shortened the lead by removing most of the last paragraph and making one line a note.
5 and 6. For many tournaments, there are no reliable sources for prize pools. For those that do have sources, there is almost never a breakdown, or even a listing of the winner's take. Other Smash wikis assume the pool to be $10 per entrant, noting that it's an assumption (see here, note prize pool hover text), but that's not something I feel comfortable doing.
Very thorough formatting throughout. The only thing I would like to see is more links to the articles for websites/publishers since you link some (Metacritic, Variety, VG247) and not others (Wired, Polygon, Twitter, Newsweek, Gamespot, Daily Esports etc) Aza24 (talk) 05:41, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
@Aza24: I think I've now linked to everything that has an article (Daily Esports does not) with the exception of Twitter and YouTube, since those aren't publishers per se, they're mediums. The Squirrel Conspiracy (talk) 08:32, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
Good call with excluding links to Twitter and YouTube, the sourcing looks great now. Sorry to bother you with the tedious task of linking publishers/websites! Anyways, pass for the source review. Aza24 (talk) 23:00, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
