Proof that Pro Gamers are Cheating with Drugs - Explosive Interview

"In one WCG, a player I knew took amphetamines an hour before his match to boost his reflexes." '

Gameplayer has an interview up with Australian WCG Tournament Director Alex Walker in which he reveals that cyber athletes taking drugs to improve performance at gaming tournaments is rife.

"I noticed that you made a mention about people claiming they were better after having a bong or two. That's true. I've seen a number of players at national tournaments who came in "baked" (that's stoned for the uninformed) purely so they could play better. In most cases they did, although obviously they couldn't just pull out another joint midway through."

LOL

The 'Mary Jane Effect' probably slowed everything else for them...even the action in the game.

On a related note, there were times when I did better in COD4 after taking a few beers.

when it comes to beers. Especilly in actual games. Like Pool.

You get better, and better and then plummet into a disgrace.

Well me, anyway

The MJE simply gives the user more patience. Setbacks aren't compounded with anger, thus allowing the user to solely focus on the task/objective for longer periods of time. And that timeframe is inherently dependant upon factors such as how much the user ingests, his "accumulated" threshold level, etc...

Pool, bowling, and golf. 2-3 beers and I play really well. To bad I never stop there.

It's different when your playing with a mate too. Cause you both drinking just as much as each other, which means you getting better and then worse at the same speed, which means you have no idea you are doing either.

That's the most complicated thing i have said in months... sober...

In the intro of this interview has some interesting stuff about a gamer specific drug called FPSBrain desiigned by a German pharmaceutical company.

Image rocking up a the next LAN, slipping a few of those and pwning your mates all night.

Do you reckon this is a PC only thing?

I realise there are plenty of console tournaments out there but I always got the impression that PC is still king in the e-sports world.

I'm not sure why some people feel they need to dictate what people can and can't do to themselves.

I smoke weed before I play halo online and I probably play better seeing that im more concentrated on the game. The only reason weed is bad is because people say its bad
