Very soon in Finland, the regional Card Strategy Tournament will be held Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. This competition is part of the world championship, suitable for the so-called international federation of Ceesport (IESF) from South Korea. Final competition will take place on November 12 in Baku.
So, I did not have time to start the tournament, and the hype around him was already rising. And all because it became aware of a single cherry point in the rules on participation, according to which, to beat for the championship in Hearthstone The right have only male players. But these rules, notice, were imposed on the Finns of the IESF itself.
According to representatives of the aforementioned organization, the International Federation of Celebrations is designed to “promote the development of cyberports, despite the language, racial and cultural barriers”. In the meantime, the inhabitants of a number of European and Asian countries can get part of its participants, but only not the British with Americans.
But back to the World Cup 2014. This year, gamers compete in five disciplines, four of which are open to men (Dota 2, STARCRAFT 2, Hearthstone, Ultra Street Fighter 4) And only two – for women (STARCRAFT 2, Tekken Tag Tournament 2).
Already from this list it can be seen that girls in IesF are really not happy. And nevertheless the organizers do see that everything is completely different. Judging by the official statement, firstly, thus IESF tries to promote female gamers to a higher level. As – in any way in one team, harmful men ‘players after all will not give fragile colleagues to show themselves as it should!
And secondly, the Korean Federation is convinced that such a division – a sign of true sport. There are men’s and women’s leagues in chess, reminds IESF. Yes only the latter there are not playing checkers, but in the same chess as the first, we remind you.
