Liga de Videojuegos Profesional (LVP) has implemented the regulations put forth in the Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC) programme.
The official League of Legends competition in Spain, Superliga Orange, has introduced these rules to help safeguard its participants and maintain a level playing field.
LVP joined ESIC in late February and implemented its rules when the Summer Split commenced on May 25th, but was only announced on July 16th. As part of adopting this new set of standards, LVP has incorporated a code of conduct for dealing with players’ behaviour, an anti-corruption code to deal with betting on esports and potential match-fixing, and a code of ethics.
Those who compete in the Superliga Orange will have to complete an anti-corruption online tutorial to ensure they understand the fundamentals of the programme. LVP has also brought in a disciplinary procedure that will make the ins and outs of investigations known to the public, and match reports will be published after each match has concluded.
The main purpose of employing such rules and regulations is in an attempt to ensure a fair and entertaining experience both both players, staff, and spectators by making sure the integrity of the tournament is intact and there are minimal wrong-doings.
ESIC also works with other tournament organisers such as ESL, DreamHack, and UMG.
Esports Insider says: The ESIC’s mission to make esports a fair and safe environment for everyone involved will only be strengthened by big-named tournament organisers such as LVP getting involved and integrating its programme. We like the sound of the transparency between the Superliga Orange and the spectators with the match reports and open investigations.
