The best you could do is something similar to bowling or golf where you have a ("for fun") league where people play with point spreads (point handicaps).



eSports and Profressional Gamers, and sports in general, are standardized. Creating variations would not be beneficial for the players (who have no control in the rules) or the sport itself - especially if there's money involved.



Cheating is fair only for the person needing the cheat and nobody else. Games as sports aren't meant to be fair. People have different skills that unbalance the play field. That's how people win and others lose - which is the purpose of the sport in the first place.

> Hi,

> I have a question about eSport and cheating.

>

> For some people cheating brings them on the same level like the other gamer.

> They need this "cheat". With this cheat it is much fair.

>

>

> My problem is: how can it be defined who should be allowed a certain cheat?

> Is it not too difficult to find out what should be allowed and what not for a certain person?

>

> Or are there some disability where it is clear that they should be allowed to use a certain cheat?

> = how to find the right balance?

> I am sorry, it is very difficult to describe. I hope you can understand it.

> Background why I write:

> Turtle Entertainment organise some Leagues. And they have know a tool that will help a gamer

> to organise everything. I think this can be a possibility to allow some cheats and to control

> what cheat is used. An admin could configure everything on the profile of the gamer.

>

> But this topic is too difficult for me. Is there someone who has enough knowledge with this topic?

> Is there interest to add such functionality? Would it be too much administration work?

>

> Maybe I can connect with the person who is developing this Tool.

>

> Best regards,

> Sandra
