Electronic Sports League Bans Substances During Competitions

The Electronic Sports League announced on Reddit that it is adopting the World Anti-Doping Agency's list of banned substances for its players. The league had announced the banning of performance enhancing drugs from competition after a team revealed that its members had consumed Adderall prior to a match in March to enhance their ability to focus. "Our main goal is and always will be to maintain the fair play spirit and the integrity of our competitions," an ESL rep wrote in a Reddit post, "and we're confident that the anti-doping policy is an important improvement that will help us advance as a sport." The banned list includes everything from anabolic steroids and HGH to cocaine and cannabis. Exceptions will be made if competitors have a valid prescription for whatever they're taking. The league will randomly test competitors and the penalties rage from fines to a maximum 2 year ban from the league. What do you think of the ESL’s decision ? What it the right one ? As long as everything stays fair, I think It was the right one.
