We're the esports wiki, Liquipedia. Ask Us Anything! http://www.topiama.com/r/3382/were-the-esports-wiki-liquipedia-ask-us-anything Liquipedia.net is a wiki that covers competitive games (esports titles). Starting with StarCraft:Brood War back in 2009, the wiki now also covers StarCraft II, Dota 2, Hearthstone, SuperSmashBrothers, and Heroes of the Storm.

We’re pretty efamous in esports, we’re pretty much the yard stick for esports wikis and all others are measured against our glory, just see this recent tweet from one of the foremost casters of StarCraft II, Dan “Artosis” Stemkoski: “i think it could never possibly be overstated how important @LiquipediaNet is.”
