Women Banned from Hearthstone iESF Tournament
The Internatonal eSports Federation has rolled out a strange and contreversial rule that is unique in the world of eSports. This rule bans female players from participating in their Hearthstone tournament.
The reasoning behind this rule is that IeSF is attempting to emulate traditional sports competitions, and that in many traditional sports competetitions there is gendered division. IeSF has drawn criticism for this decision considering that gender does not grant any type of advantadge in eSports.
