Pro e-sports player admits using performance-enhancing drugs, says doping is widespread

This was all funny until it happened to us!

Remember when it became clear that major league baseball was awash in drugs? That drugs weren’t just a problem that some players had but an accepted way of life for the game’s players, that steroids and amphetamines were just everywhere? It didn’t do much for anyone’s regard of the sport. Keep that in mind when you watch an interview in which a professional Counter-Strike player states outright that his team, and supposedly every other team at an e-sports event, was on Adderall.

Kory “Semphis” Frieson states that use of the drug is widespread at events and that anyone paying attention should see it as “obvious.” As it stands, there’s no large-scale regulation about drugs and performance enhancement in professional gaming. You can check out the interview below and draw your own conclusions about what it means for the larger scene, but it certainly doesn’t imply anything positive.

I don’t get. For real sports that you need to move something more then fingers, I imagine why some try to drug to get better. But for sitting in your f***king chair and looking at a monitor you need drugs for better performance? Really? How low can you get?

On the plus side, a known side effect of Adderall is decreased appetite …..

“…And then Jimmy the mighty army of Feds march onto the scene carrying banners embolden with the righteous “R” for regulation. All the time chanting ‘We must protect our kids!’ Then no one lived happily ever after, the end”

Man, I was prescribed vyvene, or whatever it was. The first time I took it, I was up for 48 hours straight. Its the weirdest feeling to have your body tired as crap, but your brain is still buzzing. I couldn’t do that to myself for gaming.

Tamanous 

but e-sports brings in the big money.

With millions of dollars on the line for these tournaments, you bet these pro players are popping adderall or XR.

I knew there’s something strange with everyone that is  much better then me at PVP in  every single game. I was like ‘ I can’t suck that much, right? something smells fishy’. It all makes sense now.
