If there are money to be won, than a drug test should indeed take place.
This has been known about for ages, Wired did a story on it a while back saying that it was rife in private gaming circles and actually went to a private LAN where it was served by the box.
What I was going to say
Dude. Your blood test showed up traces of Dr Pepper... I'm afraid this means we have to disqualify you.
(Dr Pepper. What's the worst that could happen?)
Reminds me of that eppisode of entourage, where turtle is entering the xbox gameing tournament.
So long as caffeine isn't on the list. Do not under-estimate the effect that a few bottles of caffeine energy drinks can have on ones reactions.
Or Guarana (sp?) and glucose.
i always play better on crack
good for you!
red bull for the win i always play best when im twitchy on caffeine.
alcohol, and perhaps a lil green .. always gets me in the mood for either fraggin or pink floyd =\
Not much difference there then
I am pro drug test in gaming! Nowadays there are big winnings involved so people tend to cheat, on way or another
i agree wit all the drug testing, drugs r bad ideas, n stuff...
but to see it in gaming lol thats wicked...
The test does not test for high amounts of caffeine or blood sugar that is caused through drings such as Red Bull. Therefore, Red Bull and other high caffeine drinks are not banned from the CPL.
Let's please remember that this is a thread to discuss the testing and the issue, NOT our personal habits.... <looks at overdosedelusion>
Keep it clean, guys.
Should've guessed this would happen sooner or later, lol.
allow all drugs in all sports , creates a level playing field for all .
but i do think this is a good move, where there are prizes to be had you can bet there are people willing to get their hands on it through any means necessary. Give the guys without a meth addiction a chance ^^
It's all about natural ability and training. Allowing all manner of performance enhancing substances would only add another layer - now it would also be a test of who's "substances" are better. It does nothing for the average person who is smart enough not to take the shortcuts that will ruin them later.
