In the "wait, what?" category, there's this news story: link

I don't think the Ancients tournaments are divided into male and female brackets.

Some say Ritalin and Adderall could give a performance boost.

How does that affect your die rolling?

I don't understand why they are testing for it, and suspending for it, if it's not performance enhancing for the sport in question. That seems like an unnecessary invasion of privacy, and a rule that doesn't accomplish anything.

Thankfully, at least for now, wargaming doesn't need this. Since there's not much at stake there's little motivation to do anything dishonorable, and we can trust each other more readily. If we were suddenly pushing panzers for big money I'm sure some people would suddenly show up that we'd have to keep an eye on.

I do this for work and the VA so frequently that you should never hand me a small transparent cup. So, I would only have concerns based on what you are testing for. Technically, Guinness isn't a performance enhancing drug; it just makes me think I play better.

So he is a Bridge player, I.E. he plays cards for a living.
