Frequently Asked Questions




You have a tournament missing from the website. What can I do to get it added?

You can register an account in the Development Area where you can fill out the tournament results yourself. Alternatively, you can submit a tip to the website with all the relevant information and credible sources, and someone else will fill it out for you. Keep in mind: Reliable sources must be cited.


Why do have a hyphen and capital S in "e-Sports"? It's "esports"!

When the name for the website was originally conceived, I thought there was supposed to be a hyphen and capital S in "e-Sports". These days, I tend to write "esports" exclusively and "Esports" at the beginning of a sentence, but I keep the name of the website as "e-Sports Earnings" because I noticed it rustles jimmies. You know who you are. :>


As a player, what information do you have on me?

As a website based on freely available public information, all we are about to record is what's available on the internet. The data we have on a player includes your real name, date of birth, country of origin, a biography if available, and of course, your tournament results and prize money earned. Unless you willingly talk about this in your personal life in an interview, such as at a livestreamed event or on a YouTube video, private things stay private. We will never post details of a private contract, unless its been vetted by a journalist and posted to a credible esports news website. We want details of your esports career, not the skeletons in your closet.


As a player, my real name appeared on the site and I do not want it here. How can I get rid of it?

First of all, if you didn't want your real name appearing on the internet and associated with video game competitions, you shouldn't have competed in tournaments to begin with. The more you compete, the more you become known as a player to the public. Bear in mind that while your real name will be removed from this website, your name will still remain in videos, news articles, wiki pages and forum posts all across the internet. This website gets its information from these credible sources. That being said, you can request the removal of your name by submitting a tip. Your tournament results and accomplishments will not be removed, as that is now a part of esports history. Also note that because this website has several contributors adding and improving information everyday, there is a very real possibility that your real name may be added back in as a "good-faith" edit.
