"The Electronic Sports League, a company that organizes e-sports competitions world-wide, said Thursday it soon will start randomly testing players for use of performance-enhancing drugs at many of the hundreds of events it runs annually.

ESL said it will test for drugs prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency, including the active agent in Adderall, a substance that a former professional gamer recently claimed to have used in a tournament. ESL, which says it has always banned performance-enhancing drug use, doesn’t plan to investigate claims of past use but says it takes the matter seriously."
