This Manual of Style supposedly improves the effectiveness and cleanliness of the article formats, so anyone is expected to follow it.

General rules

  • It is agreed that facts, events, or assertions that are not visible to all players, that are easily replicable, obtainable, or otherwise difficult to obtain, should be referenced with a supporting reference.
  • Intends to give users accurate and understandable information.
  • All articles are treated as documentation of a MOBA, not as a fandom recreation.

Article titles, section, headings, and categories

Article styles

  • A title should be a recognizable name or description of the topic that is natural, sufficiently precise, concise, and consistent with those of related articles. If these criteria conflict, they should be balanced against one another.
  • Do not use the words A, An, or The as the first word (Moniyan Empire, not The Moniyan Empire). Unless it's a necessary part of a name like The Aspirants.
  • Capitalize the first letter, but otherwise use sentence case (S.A.B.E.R. squad), not title case (S.A.B.E.R. Squad), except when title case would be anticipated if the title occurred in ordinary prose.

Section heading

Section headings should generally follow the guidelines for article titles (above) and should be presented in sentence case (Total physical defense), not title case (Total Physical Defense).

Use equals signs around a section heading: ==Title== for a primary section, ===Title=== for a subsection, and so on to ======Title======, with no level skipped. =Title= is never used. Spaces around the title (== Title ==) are optional and have no effect.

The heading must be on its line, with one blank line just before it; a blank line just after is optional and has no effect (but do not use two blank lines, before or after, because that will add unwanted visible space).

Section headings should:

  • Not contain icons or coloring.
  • Not contain citations or footnotes.

Categories

Link to an article

  • Do not use the same link over and over again on the same article.

Templates

  • Do not use any coloring texts templates such as {{AVC1}} or {{B}} on an article's about-paragraph text and it should only be used on scaling about an attribute (excluding hero abilities, as they are chiefly used on hero ability descriptions).

Grammar and punctuation

Follow these English grammatical rules:
1. Use no netspeak or any comparable slang.
2. Change up your words. Vary the length of your sentences and the phrases you utilize. It adds to the enticement of the situation.
3. When necessary, capitalize words (see below).
4. Use proper punctuation. Commas, periods, quote marks, and apostrophes are all examples of punctuation.
5. Pay attention to homophones.

Capitalization

  • Capitalize the first word of every sentence.
  • Capitalize proper nouns.
  • Capitalize the first word in titles.
  • Do not capitalize titles like "hero", "skin" or similar except when used as a proper name.
  • Capitalize the names of battle spells, equipment, and skill names.
  • Don't capitalize attributes, crowd controls, and states. Acronyms are still capitalized. Although this rule may be applied to hero articles dependent on your choice.
  • Capitalize a holiday name (e.g. Christmas, Chinese New Year)

Italics

Italics are primarily used to signify titles and names of specific works or items, allowing that title or name to stand out from the surrounding language. As an example, consider the game Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.

There are two ways to use italics:

  • Put two single quote marks before and after the content in the source editor:
''Mobile Legends: Bang Bang''
It is important to note that they are single quotes ('), not double quotes (").
  • In both the source and visual editors, highlight the text to be italicized and click the italics button in the toolbar above the edit box (the italics button looks slightly different in the two editors).

Bold text

Bolding a text is generally used to draw a user's attention to an article; nevertheless, it is only suggested to use it on the article's first name and description, and it should not be used elsewhere.

There are two ways to use bold text:

  • Put two single quote marks before and after the content in the source editor:
'''Manual of Style'''
  • Highlight the text to be bolded in both the source and visual editors and click the bold button in the toolbar above the edit box.
