I am not really interested in arguing the difference between biology and the status of gender identity norms, but it's very clear there isn't any tangible biological advantages for males playing video games over females, so sex discrimination and sex specific privilege makes literally no sense at all.




While I agree with everything else you have said, this part could not be further from the truth.

https://www.quora.com/Why-do-women-have-slower-reaction-times-than-men

Plenty of scientific studies show women have far slower reaction times to both visual and audio stimulus than male counterparts.

They are at a DISTINCT disadvantage when it comes to gaming.

For that reason, like most other competitive environments, the separation of males and females is appropriate.

I see where you are coming from but the difference really is nominal. When you take into account the fact that the average difference in reaction times is less than the difference in players pings it really is quite an insignificant number.

On a related note to that, there is at least one (probably more) study that suggests the apparent gap between male and female reaction times is steadily reducing as females are becoming more active and involved in activities that promote RT improvement.

I am not dismissing the results of the studies because they obviously hold truth, but I am really skeptical that these marginal differences can really be considered a quantifiable disadvantage...

I could make the opposite argument that females are more academically bright than males, or that females can focus longer than males which holds significant importance in a mental game like CS.

Baha fucking all of you guys are so sad, you are all mad at some 3rd party organisation investing their own and sponsors money into an event rather than getting mad at the major platform for eSports gaming in Australia for having an:


  • Underwhelming prize pool for its Professional division.
  • Allowing obvious cheaters to continue to play on their platform.
  • Allowing claims of corruption and favoritism to be put against their admins



PREACH!

100% this.

Not sure if srs?

The differences are hardly anything note worthy especially when you consider the gap in the standard deviation.



Would you think it be viable for an employer to not higher women because they are looking for people with the 'highest' reaction times? No.

Fuck we might as well segregate everyone into physical reaction times levels (like boxing with weights) and have the 250ms Championships, 200ms Championships, 150ms Championships because its obviously such a factor in CS:GO.

I could throw this one in there and say Girls>Boys at learning and as such have a distinct advantage when it comes to learning and understanding strategy or they are better at multitasking and as such can handle the various things going on in a game > than men.

This is coming from a guy who has nothing against lower skilled girls competing for good amounts of cash purely because of their gender. Good on them, if i was in there position or an investors position looking to make easy cash i would too.


This man hit the nail on the head I can almost guarantee this was purely a business decision more women in the industry= bigger market which in turn = more sales.

lmfao


well anyway at the end of the day you could put it down to a vote and i think from a viewers POV seeing pro players scrim for major money is more intense and you can learn alot more than watching females at a cga level play.

We understand you're salty cause you probably had the biggest fall from grace than anybody in the scene, but none of those are the reason you're garbage now.

Try caring about the actual game itself and becoming better rather than the arbitrary reward at the end.
