It’s about time this happened. I’ve suspected for sometime that pro-players have found ways to ‘cheat’ the system. When it was recently said by a pro-player that he and his team took Adderal to help with their performance, some in the industry were shocked. I wasn’t. As with physical sports, it seems competitors of all types will do whatever they can to gain an edge until the rules change.
Below is a paraphrase from an article on eslgaming.com.
Now those rules are changing. ESL is leading the charge to create rules against PEDs (Performance Enhancing Drugs). They have partnered with NADA (the Nationale Anti Doping Agentur, HQ’d in Germany) to create an anti-PED policy. They are also meeting with WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) to help with enforcing these new rules and policies in the U.S. Asia and Australia.
