The new ESIC rules come into effect in the League of Legends Superliga
Liga de Videojuegos Profesional (LVP) continues its quest for constant professionalisation in its competitions. In League of Legends’ Superliga Orange, the Official National LoL competition in Spain, a further step has been made with more solid and transparent rules based on the Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC) Programme that provides all possible safeguards to the participants.
ESIC is an international organization which LVP joined in early 2018 whose aim is to protect the integrity of esports. TO address this challenge, ESIC formulates codes, educates the participants in the esports ecosystem and resolves conflicts that might appear in esports competitions.
In this latest Superliga Orange Summer Split this new Programme came into effect. The Programme consists of three key components: the Code of Conduct, dealing with players behaviour (especially cheating), the Anti–corruption code, dealing with the impact of betting on esports and the potential for match-fixing, and the Code of Ethics.
To make sure all the teams and players have the necessary knowledge of the Programme, they will have to complete ESIC’s Anti-corruption online tutorial, translated into Spanish thanks to LVP and which is available for all the players in world competitions linked to ESIC.
LVP has also introduced a new disciplinary procedure with the purpose of making public how investigations will work and how conflicts will be resolved if the arise in competition. Also, and for a greater transparency, match reports are published after each Superliga Orange match. Here you can see an example of one of them dealing with the 5th match day between KIYF and ASUS ROG Army.
ESIC offers the structure so that LVP takes a further step towards improving resolution of conflicts and cheating both in live events and in online competitions. This makes sure the League, the teams, players and the rest of the staff are connected under a solid new regulatory structure consolidating LVP as a world leader in esports governance and integrity.

The Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC) was established in 2016 to take responsibility for disruption, prevention, investigation and prosecution of all forms of cheating in esports, including, but not limited to, match manipulation and doping.
