Teams having betting Sponsors that are known for fu*king people over everywhere.
Orgs like WePlay are having Sponsors whose owners are on wanted lists and support child sport betting.
Even guides inside the actual game lead to betting sites.
Where is the limit Valve? Isn't this going way too far? Can we please have some strict rules when it comes to things like this like Riot Games?
This is the official ruleset for Games from Riot:
The Prohibited Sponsor and Advertiser List:
Any other video game, other video game developer, or publisher
Any video game consoles
Any esport or other video game tournament, league, or event
Gambling, sportsbook and casinos
Fantasy esports operators (including daily fantasy)
Any prescription drugs or drugs that are not "over-the-counter" drugs including items such as CBD oils, etc.
Firearms, ammunition or firearm accessories
Pornography or pornographic products
Tobacco products or paraphernalia
Alcohol products (including non-alcoholic beverages marketed by alcohol companies) or other intoxicants the sale or use of which is regulated by applicable law
Sellers of or marketplaces for virtual items known to be counterfeit or illegal
Seller of or marketplaces for goods or services that violate the Riot Games terms of Service
Cryptocurrencies, or any other unregulated financial instruments or markets
Political campaigns or political action committees
Charities that endorse particular religious or political positions, or are not reputable. (Red Cross, American Cancer Society, Stand-Up to Cancer and other similar mainstream charities would be considered reputable)
And we have like…no rules at all i suppose? How can this be after a decade of Dota Esports? This just looks so freaking bad for the game man.
