Making esports safer

Healthy Player ONE

 

 

Educators, students and parents alike are increasingly concerned about two substantive challenges regarding esports that prevent it from being both a healthy and inclusive environment:

Bullying/HarassmentBullying/Harassment – Gaming communication “can be hostile” and “misogynistic and hurtful.” Women report being routinely subjected to “nasty comments about their abilities, knowledge, appearance and tone of voice.” Codes of conduct can only go so far to change this behavior.

Health & SafetyEye fatigue (56%), back/neck pain (42%) and wrist/hand injuries (36%) reported among college esports players. While no data currently exist for K-12, once such information is published, it could create fear among school officials and board members to cancel esports.  PDF Source: Managing the Health of the Esport Athlete
