As detailed in a new blog post, it’s a pretty standard affair. Here’s the meat of it:
“Among other things, the Code of Conduct requires that team members and owners:
- observe the highest standards of personal integrity and good sportsmanship;
- compete to the best of their skill and ability at all times;
- comply with all applicable laws at all times;
- not engage in any activity or practice which brings him or her into public disrepute or scandal;
- not engage in any form of harassment or discrimination;
- not place bets on any games, matches, or tournaments involving Overwatch;
- not make any false, defamatory, libelous, or slanderous remarks, comments, or statements; and
- not use or attempt to use any bugs or exploits in Overwatch.”
While it’s great the Esports league’s Code has been posted, it’s been sorely needed; already, a player has used homophobic language when speaking of another player. Thankfully, he was suspended for his actions, Code or not.
Overwatch League’s second stage is about to kick off, with a rematch between the Stage One finalists, London Spitfire and New York Excelsior.
