The ESL recently announced plans to help curve the use of PEDs (Performance Enhancing Drugs) in e-Sports.
“We’ve known for some time that performance-enhancing drugs could be a challenge that we’d eventually need to face,” James Lampkin, vice president of pro gaming for the league, told ESPN.com. “With the explosive growth of our events and industry, the stakes have gotten to a point where, just like traditional athletes, some have begun to look for that extra edge. With knowledge that there was likely active abuse of PEDs taking place, we immediately began serious discussions with top drug agencies for methods of prevention.”
The ESL has teamed up with National Anti-Doping Agency in Germany to help setup guidelines and regulations for the policy that would be submitted to the World Anti-Doping Agency to help carry out out around league.
