In the famous words of a Battlefield 2 Medic: "Clear! All right, you're good to go!" The ESL One Cologne random drug test results have been released and they're all negative.




Set as the biggest CS:GO event in history, ESL One Cologne was the first foray into random drug testing by ESL. This testing regime was brought in due to concerns of players using Adderall and Cannabis in order to enhance game play, something that is strictly forbidden under ESL's rules.


PC Gamer asked ESL how many players were randomly tested, but was denied an answer on the grounds that the drug testing methods will stay as private as possible.
