I personally feel like it's a sport, not sweating shouldn't decide anything since you don't sweat in chess either...
2017-12-03 21:20
chess shouldnt be a sport. The definition of sport is physical exertion. so no video games is not a sport. But if chess is classified as a sport then i have no problem with esports.
2017-12-03 21:24
even tho Chess federation is in Olympic committee , still it doesnt mean its sport..most poepl call it a game and thats perfect description for it..Same way should be with e-sports

In Finland we have 2 words that are commonly mixed up with each other and it seems you guys are doing the same thing. "Urheilu" and "liikunta" "Urheilu" translates as sport and "liikunta" translates as exercise or physical education. Liikunta is intentional physical activity, which aims e.g. to rise fitness, at better health or just joy and pleasure produced by physical activity. (fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liikunta) Urheilu which translates to as " Sports is a form of exercise that is practiced to maintain physical fitness, recreation, or competi- tive competition. It also includes recreational or recreational activities where the proportion of mechanical equipment or animals is significant" Just read the latter sentence again plz :) fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urheilu

thats not opinion thats fact..anyway, there is absolutely zero doubt that video games will be considered sport at some point down the line, so that kinda makes this discussion redundant

i think it is a sport, but sport has subcategories and it definitely does not go in the same one with "normal" sports, such as football, tennis etc. same applies for sports like: chess, darts, snooker etc I like them all (except chess) , but you can just not put these sports and football, tennis in the same category. long story short, we should define some sport sub categories to avoid confusion and mocking from some people about snooker, darts or cs being a sport.

By definition, no. However, since other 'games' like chess are classified as sports, then for the time being eSports should have zero issue with being classified as one as well. I personally don't care for the most part though.
2017-12-03 21:47
this. if u consider chess or even snooking a sport then e-sports should have no problem for u. Personally I believe for something to be a Sport it should have 'athletic hability' as at least 50% of the game. in e-sports u don't need any athletic ability other than reaction time... u don't need strenght, cardio, explosive movements, speed, agility or anything... personally i don't even consider racing as a sport...
2017-12-03 21:52
Totally disagree with you. In racing racers have big stress on their bodies and physical condition. Racers have to do a lot of cardio things too. For e-sports it's unsual to have physical injuries, except SC2, where muscle injuires are common thing.
2017-12-03 22:05
yeh... but 90% of the times wins who has the best car... I mean, u need to be in shape to be a racer, no doubt, but once u are "in shape" everyone plays in the same field and the one with the best car wins.... i mean, physical habilities hardly, if even, are the main reasons for a win in racing...
2017-12-05 22:01
50% of mechanical work, 50% of racer work. It's not a secret that racers can drop for 7-10 kg per race. If we would talk about endurance championships, pilots there can drop even more kg. Their reaction and physical condition are the most important things. Especially, reaction, cuz you can easily be trained to control your car outside the race, but when you are in that racing situations, this is another thing. And ofc, you have to be ready to react for unpredictable situations, which are 90% of the race. Racing is much harder than e-sports anyway. There is no way to compare them. Chess and e-sports - yes, but not racing at all. For easy understanding: mechanics have to prepare car for at least 99% for the race, this is their work for 95% (5% is the work for pilot, cuz the racing car is made for them, they have to tell mechanics what settings to change). But when car is out of the box, it's 95% work for pilot.

Not necessarily. Some definitions go by the need for physical exertion of force to be present, which is why sometimes it doesn't make the concept a legitimate sport.

My opinion won't play a big role in such discussion, but there is one interesting fact about this topic. In sports ppl improve their physical condition, in the pro sports ppl get only injuries and they become braindead and stupid. When playing video games makes you smarter (if you play RTS, BTS, but no MOBA) and you improve your reaction and skills to think quick (also RTS, plus FPS). In pro e-sports you have got mental injuries and you will be out of life. In the conclusion, play classic sports and e-sports for your own enjoyment without fanatism and you will be all right.

I would say no. Not because sports have to do anything with "sweating" or sth like that, but because it's just another definition. There are different types of sports (Football, Basketball, Tennis etc...) and there are different types of esports (CS:GO, League of Legends, Dota 2 etc..). So i would make a difference between sports and esports because both have their disciplines. The right thing to do is to consider for example Counterstrike as a type of sport, but not esport as complete thing.

"Fitness, recreation, or competitive competition" - if you take these 3 things esport is just a competitive competition. But there are many things who are just "competitive" but aren't sport at all, f.e. trading-card-games (They have big tournaments too). I love esport, but why does it need to be forced into the definition of sports? For me, sports are sports and esports are esports.

saying an esport isnt a sport is like saying a playing card isnt a card.
2017-12-03 22:26
lmao wtf this comment. If they are just sitting playing video games it isn't sport. And don't talk about it being exhausting to sit on chair for 2-3 hours. The only reason it would be exhausting is if the player is overweight and in bad physical form. for example I don't think Freakazoid, Scream, Dev1ce gets exhausted when sitting behind the screen.

Nothing, athletes lay down 4 years, and then they go and jump 8 metres, they run 100 meters at 9 sec etc etc

In Finland we have 2 words that are commonly mixed up with each other and it seems you guys are doing the same thing. "Urheilu" and "liikunta" "Urheilu" translates as sport and "liikunta" translates as exercise or physical education. Liikunta is intentional physical activity, which aims e.g. to rise fitness, at better health or just joy and pleasure produced by physical activity. (fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liikunta) Urheilu which translates to as " Sports is a form of exercise that is practiced to maintain physical fitness, recreation, or competi- tive competition. It also includes recreational or recreational activities where the proportion of mechanical equipment or animals is significant" Just read the latter sentence again plz :) fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urheilu

Of course not. According to Oxford English dictionary, sport NOUN 1An activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment. ‘team sports such as soccer and rugby’ "Involving physical exertion AND skill..." not OR, AND. So, you gotta have both. And honestly it wouldn't take much intelligence for people to realize that sitting behind your computer all day long eating chips and drinking Coca Cola isn't a sport, it's actually the opposite of a sport. It means sedentary lifestyle, heart problems, obesity, etc... (if you don't take care of your health and do some kind of actual sport). Next time you go to the doctor and he asks you if you do some kind of sport tell him you play CS:GO, let's see what will be his reaction. Sport = physical activity. Period. There's really not much left to discuss here honestly. ( en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/spo.. )

I dont care if that is a sport or not, who cares ? Sport meaning is fucked up if there is something like chess, darts and etc. The important thing is that its fun. E-sport is brand new thing of 21th century, what can offer better watch experience in my opinion and i do sports regularly. I hope that i can watch PRO CS in next 30 years on the biggest stadions with amazing production, that esports can be a future, if people still gonna do psychical physical and feel the real world, i dont see a problem with it. Not just american media, but media everywhere on the world are shitshows with retarted people in it saying bullshits for money and drama, media never changes.

It ain't cause there are still Valve/Riot etc. who hold everything in their hands. They can ruin the game week before an important tournament. Unless the games get somehow seperated from their developers, esport will never be a true sport.

Its not a sport. Do you describe a kid that plays CS 8 hours a day 'sporty' and 'athletic'? If someone asks you "do you play any sports?", do you reply with "yeah I play cs" Who has the authority to classify what is a sport? No one. Who gives a fuck if chess is played in the Olympics? Who gives a fuck if CS Pros are given Sports Visas? What else are they going to give them, recreational visas? Seriously have some common sense you nerds. God dammit if you guys want more than 2 genders and call video games a sport, fucking UNO and Maccas Drive Thru better be classified as sports.

2017-12-04 08:45
No its not. I dont see it as a sport since somebody owns the game. No one own football, basketball and that shit, but Valve own CSGO, Blizzard owns Overwatch, and so on.
2017-12-04 10:20
Good point and accurate , also football, baskerball etc exist 100 years , and will exist forever, something that will not happen with cs.go

If billards and darts are a sport than e-sport is a sport mate, look how many games are already considered a sport like poker for example because they're competitive so I don't see why e-sport shouldn't be.
2017-12-04 11:36
It doesn't go with the traditional definition (including physical strain). However, it has all the other components to be a sport. I think it is better to count esports as its own entity. An esport, and not try to tag it along to anything else. We not need the gratification of everyone else, we need to seek to be the biggest we can be, which can be bigger than any sport out there.

2017-12-05 11:33
there's no real resistance with a mouse and keyboard, so freely moving them around does not correlate to physical exertion maybe it would if the mouse had a 45lb weight on top of it lol

Do shooters have to carry 45LB gun to compete in Olympics?
2017-12-05 16:07
you are using upper body strength, arm strength, core strength, etc when you are shooting firearms and maintaining recoil, so yes
2017-12-05 17:34
#219

Europe KittyChamp 
No. Though shooting is universally considered as a sport, you don't have/need to train your body strength, arm strength, etc to be better at shooting. You have to train your aim, muscle memory and specially mentality. And no again, I did not wrote it out of my ass like you did with the shitload of "strengths" lol. It's how one shooter trained from the very beginning to be a Olympic bronze medalist. Seriously, research this shit more and stop making stuff up. Now let's see again how CS GO people train to be a pro. Aim - Yes Muscle memory - See above Mental - Of course. Team work - Yes Competition - Yes BTW: Look at this article and its comments. Same argument, but Shooting instead of CS GO (eSports). firearmusernetwork.com/2012/01/13/is-sho.. BTW2: Your argument is like "Hey mouse is lighter than handgun" lol
2017-12-05 19:37
bahahahaha you are so triggered i served in the military for 9 years and ive shot more weapons and more rounds than you can probably imagine... if you shoot for long enough periods of time (outside of a .22LR i suppose), you absolutely get sore all over your body and certain muscles get tired and worn out. competitive shooting, not just target shooting, involves moving to your targets and an element of physical ability to quickly and effectively engage your target within the rules of the particular event sitting in a computer chair moving your hands around on a mouse and keyboard is not even close to the "physical exertion" that is involved with traditional sports... ffs bowling is more of a sport than playing video games.... calling it a competitive team event is one thing, but calling it a sport is completely different

I don’t understand why some people want to see esports considered sports. There are and will always be things that won’t allow that, like Valve having the monopoly on rule-setting in CS:GO, or sketchy anticheat measures (esp. online), or no consistent tournament schedules (and consistent invite/qualifier systems with that), or ownership control, contract ethics etc etc etc. While for some esports some issues are solved, in general it’s a shitfest. But there’s nothing bad with esports being in their own niche and not having to adapt to standards they can’t uphold. It’s dumb to seek validation of esports this way.
