Championships are major tournaments that represent a milestone in the gaming community. These are large, well-organized events that often take place every year.
Examples of championship events include national/state/regional championships, major tournaments at gaming conventions, and large yearly tournaments that draw players from a wide area.
Some championships are organized or recognized by a game publisher or some other gaming authority. These championships are marked with gold laurels to reflect their official nature.
Championships organized by local gaming communities or independent organizations are marked with silver laurels.

Potential championships are considered on an individual basis, but the general guideline is that championships need to have a big impact on the gaming community. Some things we look for include:
Championship events generally must have at least 32 players, but bigger is better. This could mean a single large event or multiple mid-sized events that feed into a smaller finals.
A championship event or its qualifiers must be available to any players. Invitationals are not accepted unless there is a public way to gain an invitation.
A championship should be publicized elsewhere (website, social media, etc.) and must be visible to the public on Longshanks. We like to see championship events posted at least one month before the event date.
Championship events must be rated. This is to encourage the high levels of competitive play that championships should include.
