The Russian eSports President and athletes have taken a prominent place in the world, despite the political situation, Maxim Fler, the Moscow eSports Federation, said in an interview with Metaratings.ru.
Fleur said that the organization supports domestic cybersportsmen and holds tournaments at its sites.
– In observed situations, there is an exceptional risk of suspension from teams and rarely seen players. We, as an organization that develops our sport, continue to support Moscow and Russian athletes in dealing with foreign organizations. Sports competitions are also continuing, in which representatives of any teams and countries participate. In general, we are convinced that esports is coming to Russia.
the region and its actors can change a lot, in the near future we will see a new structure. This applies not only to players, but also to the interests and capabilities of sponsors, who are also currently reconsidering approaches to work. We must remember – the audience that esports, teams and athletes have not gone away. Still, this is a young sport, and it visits athletes.
Russia is one of the representatives of the big eSports world. The choice of a major international LAN-tournament such as Major in Dota 2 or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, our country can count only in a few years, but I hope that our athletes will take part in international competitions. We also count on the fact that the Games of the Future are participating in Russia, as well as major players for the players from the SCO/BRICS,” Fleur said.
Earlier, the international eSports organization Electronic Sports League allowed Russian Natus Vincere players to play without showing their national broadcasts.
