    Default Pro gaming league bans same drugs as the Olympics

    By Harry Fletcher

    The Electronic Sports League (ESL) professional gaming organization has announced it's taking a tighter stance on drug control.

    Gamers competing in eSports events will now have to avoid a list of banned substances compiled by the World Anti-Doping Agency.




    Banned substances include marijuana, anabolic steroids and growth hormones.

    The ESL will check contestants at random using saliva tests, making exceptions for certain prescription medications.

    A Reddit post from the ESL earlier this week confirmed the news, stating: "Our main goal is and always will be to maintain the fair play spirit and the integrity of our competitions.

    "We're confident that the anti-doping policy is an important improvement that will help us advance as a sport."

    The post continued: "It is a small, but in our eyes essential and meaningful step forward for professional gamers across all games, ESL as an event organizer, and the esports industry as a whole.
    "There were a lot of questions left unanswered since the first announcement, and today we're ready to share more information with you."

    It was revealed last month that eSports organisers were looking at ways to tackle doping in competitive gaming after professional gamer Kory Friesen said he used Adderall - a drug that improves reaction times - during an eSports tournament.

    Now competitors will be required to provide proof "that they need this specific medication" before the start of competitive matches.

    eSports have grown in popularity over the past decade, with ESPN even broadcasting the International Dota 2 Championships.

    Lol, I honestly see weed being the big one here... I could kick some ass at video games when I was a lazy stoner in high school, helps you focus and keep steady. I have no clue why anabolics or growth hormones would even be considered.

    Maybe if they train (play video games) while on some test and dbol they will get huge thumb and finger muscles therefore giving them an unfair competitive advantage.
    Or it will just increase their appetite allowing them to eat more doritos, pizza and drink more mountain dew kickstarts than the other guys. (could be very intimidating)
    They could be afraid of roid rage, you don't want some geek all jacked up and decide to start flipping tables, busting up monitors and slamming keyboards!!
    Lots of concerns.

    Sounds like they just copypasta'd the IOC banned substances list and left it at that. They're probably more concerned about stims than juice.
