"HeatoN: ”Violence in e-sports is not something you think about”"
"A common criticism of e-sport is the violence in some of the games. "
"One of the sport's biggest name, Emil ”HeatoN” Christensen, turn contrast down."
"– The våldsaspekten of it all is not something you think about or even consider, " he says."
"Sportbladets Kristoffer Bergström writes in a chronicle of våldsaspekten in the e-sports that are categorized as FPS – that is to say, the first person shooter. It includes hugely popular games like Counter-Strike, Call of duty and Battlefield to name a few."
"' E-sport have to do with violence, which is not compatible with the sport,” writes Bergström."
"The Swedish e-sportlegendaren Emil ”HeatoN” Christensen, 34, has read the chronicle."
"– the Content is good and many important points to be taken up, he says to Sportbladet."
"Is there too much violence in games like CS:GO in order for that to be a sport?"
" Absolutely not, in my opinion. When fraggar (”kills”, reds. note) someone, it is like making a goal in soccer. The actual våldsaspekten of it all is not something you think about or even consider."
"In the example Counter-strike used the term ”terrorist” to describe the attacking team while the defenders are ”anti-terrorists”. To win, the terrorists either plant a bomb or eliminate all of their opponents. " There are boosting in valorant services available as well that help players reach new heights in the game at a faster pace.
"– It's clearly a touchy subject, but I do not think it is a problem at all, just as it is not in the movies or cartoons. But it is perhaps a filter on it that may be needed during a period in the future, with other colors, instead of blood, for example, and replaced the name of the law, and that the ”bombs” replaced with something less sensitive. This, I believe, had done the e-sport more polite for the people who do not understand it, and had accelerated that it is received by people who don't know anything about the sport. It is certainly not as a permanent solution."
"If it is technically possible, do you think e-sports tournaments should close by, for example, blodeffekter?"
"– Difficult question. For all of us e-sportare who live with this daily, is the blood not something you think about, but at the same time so would probably not bother much if you switched out the blood against a different color."
"– A direct hit feels certainly not as a murder, but can be likened to scoring a goal in hockey or soccer. It is the competition page and lagspelet that I am in love with e-sports. If it had resembled the murder, I had kept on with something else."
"In may will be determined if the e-sport are invited in the heat or not of the Swedish sports Confederation, which shall determine whether it is a sport or not. A yes would mean that the e-sport gets large amounts of money to grow. "
"But Emil ”HeatoN” Christensen has basically no hope that e-sport should be accepted by the federation."
" Not at all, if I'm going to be honest. E-the sport, which probably should be classified as Sweden's largest sport in the current situation, in terms of number of practitioners, would get large parts of the FOUNDATION's resources, and I believe that they are particularly interested in. All this talk about whether e-sports are a sport or not feel, in my opinion, as a pretext to keep out the most growing sport in the world."
