Perspective: Regulation Efforts In Esports

Logan McLean, Esports Advisor, for NGame Esports talks about organizations trying to regulate esports.

The Esports Integrity Coalition recently rebranded to the Esports Integrity Commission. In your opinion, are any of these esports commissions bringing any value to esports?

Commissions and Coalitions like the Esports Integrity Commission while often founded with the best intentions often end up damaging the industry they seek to aid instead of supporting it. For the EIC to be successful and for them to have enforceable authority, the commission will require collaboration with industry developers. Without such a partnership, the EIC will be another hollow force, with no power to enact and enforce anti-cheat protocols, etc.

How much involvement do we need to see from game developers in terms of esports regulation?

Developers are the industry front-line when it comes to rules and regulations in the industry; without them setting a precedent, there is nothing for external commissions to build off.
