Esports in The Olympic Games
Lithuania andy_ 
Should esports be featured in The Olympic Games? A lot of unconventional sports have been added to this event recently, so I think esports could succeed there as well. Share your opinions on this

Yes man. Would love to see proper national teams in esports!

still it would be pretty frustrating to see only one team from countries like; denmark, ukraine, sweden, when there are teams for example from signapore, macedonia, venezuela trying to compete against them.

No. Too much randomness. There is no 100% skill defined game. While other sports require actual skill and effort.

It is skill, ofc there will be luck involved but all sports have a random element.

Most sports do not have a single percentage of randomness.

No. But esport version of Olympics with all relevant esports would be nice. Serious one of course, not another crappy shit organised by another shady Chinese org.

I think the level would be low considering they'd have to be unpaid national teams

No, of course not. Firstly because Olympic games don't allow the use of any sports that relies on electronics or engines, for example car racing, motorbikes and others. In order to be in the Olympic a sport has to be 100% "man-powered", which is the case with all such as swimming, racing, marathon and now skateboarding and surfing, which will be featured in 2020. And secondly because Esports aren't actual sports. Its players being called athletes is one of the biggest bullshits I've ever heard. Esports require no physical effort whatsoever, requires no physical training, seriously, you could be a 200kg fat dude and still be called an "athlete", like wtf? (inb4 you mention fighting where there are big guys who fight in the heavier categories, nice try, but they actually undergo a lot of physical training and diets to maintain their weight to not be 'relegated' to a lighter category or vice versa). And inb4 [two] you mention chess. Yeah, that was a mistake, a mistake that was already corrected, and hopefully will never be repeated again.
