Competitive eSports. Drug Testing?
 
I'm just curious if Riot has an official policy on performance enhancing drugs. Now that they are trying to promote a weekly competitive scene, are they testing to make sure players aren't using speed to gain a competitive edge?

Edit: I said performance enhancing drugs. Such as Adderall.
Edit 2: Scroll down in this article to where it says "Getting a perscription for adderall is not hard." http://www.theverge.com/2012/7/26/31...autionary-tale It explains the effects of Adderall pretty well for those of you who don't believe it could benefit a competitive gamer.

Yes, Bath Salts promotes better eating of the champions' faces

Yeah, man, LSD should totally be banned. Gives people a competitive edge.

I generally think most drugs would hurt you.

there used to be competitive Halo players who took Adderal before tournament matches.

The Idea was that it would let you hyper-focus on the game, but it was probably more of a placebo effect than anything.

and I don't think it will be a problem for League.

I'm pretty sure the OP is talking about mental focus enhancers like cocaine, mentats, or amphetamines (adderall, meth.) Which in a game like LoL is the equivalent of steroids.

I agree, they should be tested. I bet you half of the American teams and 90% of the Asian teams use some type of speed to gain an unfair advantage.

Upvoted and bumped for the stupidity of GD.

Thanks for taking the post seriously. I'm pretty sure that the amphetamines in Adderall have a noticeable effect that surpasses that of a placebo.

Sterioids would be op for playing LoL. Your arm would get so muscular you can press your entire keyboard at once.
