Russia Updates Esports Training Standards Amidst Ongoing Ukraine Conflict

In a recent and significant development in the esports sector, the Russian Ministry of Sports has revised its training standards for esports athletes. This move, occurring against the backdrop of Russia’s ongoing military involvement in Ukraine, introduces a unique and rigorous click-test for gamers, alongside comprehensive physical training requirements. Adding to the significance of this development, President Vladimir Putin has endorsed the establishment of an annual international esports tournament in the Far Eastern Federal District.

The Introduction of the Click-Test

A key feature of the new standards is the mandatory click-test, focusing on the left mouse button. The criteria are challenging: “boys and girls” must achieve 180 clicks in 30 seconds, while “young men” and “young women” are expected to reach at least 220 and 210 clicks, respectively. Each athlete is given three attempts, with the best one being recorded.

Putin’s Endorsement of Esports Development

Amidst these changes, President Vladimir Putin has taken a proactive stance in promoting esports within Russia. On 12 September 2023, during the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, Putin announced the organization of an annual esports tournament in the Far Eastern Federal District. This initiative is seen as a move to enhance the popularity and development of computer sports both in Russia and internationally.

Contextualizing the Change

The timing of these changes is significant, as Russia continues to face international scrutiny over its military actions in Ukraine. While the Ministry of Sports’ decision is primarily aimed at enhancing the skills and competitiveness of Russian esports athletes, it also occurs in a broader context where sports and politics intersect, especially in times of national and international tension.

Beyond Clicking: A Comprehensive Training Regime

The new standards extend beyond the click-test. Athletes are also assessed on their visual-motor reaction to colored light signals. This is part of a broader approach that includes physical training, emphasizing speed, endurance, and coordination, reflecting the physical demands of high-level esports competition.

Esports Training in Russia: A Brief History

The Ministry of Sports had initially established training standards for esports athletes in 2022. The latest revisions, however, come at a crucial juncture, aligning with President Vladimir Putin’s directive to develop computer sports in various regions, including the Far Eastern Federal District.

Physical preparation, which accounts for up to a third of the total training process, is a significant focus of the new standards. The introduction of the click-test is a shift from the previous norm of “squatting without stopping,” indicating a move towards skills more directly relevant to esports.

Esports in the Shadow of Geopolitical Tensions

Russia’s early recognition of esports as an official sport in 2016 positioned it as a pioneer in the field. However, the recent enhancements to training standards, amidst the ongoing conflict with Ukraine, add a layer of complexity to the narrative, intertwining the realms of sports, politics, and international relations.

Looking Ahead: Russia’s Esports Ambitions

These updated standards, while subject to debate, highlight Russia’s commitment to maintaining a competitive edge in the global esports landscape. The move is seen as part of a broader strategy to foster national pride and showcase Russian talent in the international arena, even as the country navigates complex geopolitical challenges.

Esports Washing: A New Chapter in Russian Esports with the Formation of ARKI

The landscape of Russian esports is undergoing a transformative shift with the formation of the Cyber Sports Infrastructure Development Association (ARKI), another initiative for ‘esports washing’. Industry giants, led by Langame, a developer of specialized software for cyber clubs, are uniting to advance the sector. Dmitry Lukin, the founder of Langame, and Pavel Golubev, the company head, have pioneered this initiative.

Esports Washing in Russia ARKI | ELN

A Unified Front in Russian Esports

The Russian esports industry is witnessing a significant transformation and another step in esports washing as major players unite to form the Cyber Sports Infrastructure Development Association (ARKI). Spearheaded by Langame, a developer of specialized software for cyber clubs, ARKI promises to redefine the esports landscape in Russia.

Founded by Langame’s founder, Dmitry Lukin, and company head Pavel Golubev, ARKI is already gaining traction with prominent cyber club networks like Colizeum, True Gamers, and CyberX, as well as EZ Katka and F5 Cyber Sports Center, joining as members. This move signifies a united effort to bolster the industry’s growth and address the challenges it faces, including taxation and regulatory recognition.

The establishment of ARKI marks an era of proactive engagement for the industry. With 460 clubs under Colizeum, 114 arenas across Russia and CIS under True Gamers, and 220 clubs with CyberX, the association commands a significant presence in the esports sector. ARKI is not just for club networks but is open to hardware suppliers, software developers, and representatives from gaming industries and esports organizations, reflecting a comprehensive approach to industry challenges.

Navigating the Tax Jungle

One of ARKI’s primary goals is to advocate for the inclusion of cyber clubs and esports arenas in the patent tax system, a move that would simplify the tax process by allowing clubs to pay a fixed sum based on their specific type and location of operations. This system could replace the traditional tax declaration and payment process, offering a streamlined approach beneficial for smaller entities.

“The introduction of a tax system tailored for esports arenas and cyber clubs could significantly ease the bureaucratic burden these entities currently face,”

a Langame spokesperson explained.

Redefining Esports as a Sport

In addition to tax reform, ARKI aims to work on the legislative recognition of computer clubs and esports arenas as official sports venues. This recognition could transform how these entities operate and are perceived within the wider sports and recreational sectors.

The move towards forming ARKI is seen as a logical step in the evolution of the esports industry, which has already surpassed movie theaters in revenue generation. Many clubs are privately owned and categorize their revenue under equipment rental, which aligns with ARKI’s interest in patent tax utilization, indicating a strategic move towards financial optimization and regulatory compliance.

Moreover, Vasily Ovchinnikov, head of the Video Game Industry Development Organization, supports this initiative, highlighting its potential to dismantle barriers and foster growth. He notes the complex nature of the current system where computer clubs are taxed similarly to entertainment segments, which ARKI could address through its advocacy for beneficial tax positions and legislative recognition.

Esports vs. Traditional Entertainment: A Financial Juggernaut

The formation of ARKI is not merely a business maneuver but a reflection of the esports industry’s growth trajectory, which now outpaces traditional cinema in terms of revenue.

“The esports industry has evolved from a niche entertainment sector to a major economic entity, necessitating a formal structure like ARKI to advocate for its interests,”

noted Vasily Ovchinnikov, head of the Video Game Industry Development Organization. However, this rapid growth has not been without its challenges. The existing tax regime, tailored more towards general entertainment than competitive gaming, imposes a significant financial burden on club owners, who often categorize their revenues under equipment rental to mitigate tax liabilities.

Interestingly, the Russian Esports Federation (RESF) of Russia, established in 2016, has also been active in promoting the interests of the industry, achieving recognition of esports as an official discipline, and advocating for benefits such as military service deferments for esports athletes. However, ARKI’s formation signifies a broader coalition aiming to enhance the structural and regulatory framework of the esports industry further.

Sporting Venue or Recreational Facility? The Ongoing Debate

The distinction between recreational and sporting venues becomes particularly poignant in locations where alcohol sales can coexist with esports activities, as in shopping centers.

“The coexistence of alcohol sales and esports competitions in the same venues complicates their classification and requires careful regulatory consideration,”

Ovchinnikov added. This situation necessitates a clear regulatory framework to distinguish between purely entertainment-oriented clubs and those that genuinely foster competitive esports.

The Future of Russian Esports

For the industry, the stakes are high, and the potential is immense. With esports clubs seeing a 15% revenue increase in 2023 alone, reaching 23 billion rubles, the formation of ARKI could be the cornerstone of a new developmental phase for Russian esports. This unified approach could not only address immediate financial and regulatory challenges but also pave the way for a sustainable and recognized esports ecosystem in Russia.

Russia’s Esports Strategy

While the strategic formation of ARKI highlights the potential of Russian esports, it also casts a light on a broader tactic often seen in Russian governance: leveraging emerging industries like esports to project a modern, technologically advanced image while possibly overlooking deeper systemic issues such as regulation and international perception. This ‘esports washing’ raises questions about the sincerity of efforts to nurture the industry organically versus using it as a facade for enhancing national prestige.

Takaze’s Take: Free the Agents – Sexism and Misogyny in the Esports Business

This new format of an article (Takaze’s Take) explains how an eathlete can file a discrimination lawsuit in the USA. This article also discusses women in sports.

Published

on

Takaze's Take: Free the Agents

On 28 February 2024, Josefine Jensen, a member of Astralis’ Women’s Counter-Strike team, took a stand. She Xed a letter to Valve Corporation, demanding a change in their business practices. Specifically, she urged them to make female agent skins free to use in Counter-Strike. This issue, she believes, is not just about Skins but about the deep-rooted sexism and misogyny that pervades the esports industry. 

The esports world has a rich history of mistreating women.[1] However, women in America do have a way to counterattack. For example, suppose the misandrist is someone you work with. In that case, you can file a Charge of Discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).[2] 

The EEOC enforces “federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetic information.”[3] If you sign and file a Charge of Discrimination, you are “asserting that an employer, union or labor organization engaged in employment discrimination.”[4] You must file a Charge of Discrimination with the EEOC before you can sue your employer for discrimination.

Takaze’s Take

Filing a Charge of Discrimination is not your only option. In fact, as the war against Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) intensifies, the EEOC may be unable to protect you. Unfortunately, your enemies intend to compel the EEOC to enforce the status quo.[5] If DEI is important to you, then a showdown with your adversaries may be inevitable. 

Mr. Monopoly’s Wisdom

Your opponents view DEI as a zero-sum game. Fear and insecurities are at the center of the conflict.[6] We ought to celebrate your accomplishments.[7] Instead, your adversaries recognize that these fears and insecurities make their followers susceptible to viewing your success as a threat.[8] Mr. Monopoly can help you understand the schism. Until recently, your enemies owned the entire board. Their rule was ruthless and absolute. Over time, your foes’ forefathers were forced to make half-hearted concessions. Your forebears were given Mediterranean Avenue—Connecticut Avenue. Their adversaries expected them to be content. 

Those whose shoulders you stand upon continued to press the issue. You landed on Atlantic Avenue, and your sights are set on Boardwalk. The last seven to eight years in American politics should have clarified one thing for you: Your enemies consider your desire to own Boardwalk wholly unacceptable.

Their Strategy

Your enemies are clever.[9] They copied the tactics of Civil Rights activists.[10] Now, your opponents are erasing them from your history books.[11] Their recent legislative and judicial victories show that your adversaries are reaping the rewards of their efforts.[12] Your enemies likely believe their victory will be absolute if they can expunge the history of your forebears.

The Counter-Strike

The sports and entertainment worlds have not acquiesced to your enemies’ demands.[13] As we enter the next phase of the streaming wars, alienating marginalized groups is a surefire way to lose.[14] You can leverage the pursuit of profits to your advantage. For example, working at the FDIC was a never-ending party until the Wall Street Journal arrived.[15]The author hopes that soon, every woman will feel safe in the workplace. Perhaps your enemies feel secure because the esports world is not mainstream. The author hopes you show them that they are misreading the tea leaves.

The spotlight is shining brightly upon the women’s sports universe. The WNBA and ESPN plan to capitalize on Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese’s fame.[16] The NWSL is expanding.[17] Private equity firms are investing heavily in the sports world.[18] The NFL is arriving fashionably late to the dance, but their dance card is undoubtedly full.[19] The esports world claims to be unhappy with its dependence upon the Saudis, and the business model needs to be tweaked.[20]Investors not chosen by the major sports leagues will need a date. If DEI is important to you, now may be the time to press the issue. 

Advance your token to Boardwalk.
