Editor’s News Pick of the Week

League of Legends is one of the few competitive games that managed to get a P1 North American visa for its players in the past. After William “Leffen” Hjelte, probably the best Super Smash Bros player in the world, was deported from the States because he held a tourist visa instead of a work visa, eSports fans held a petition to make the government consider the competitive video-games scene as a legitimate sport. To get a response from the White House, the petition needed 100.000 signs by the 29th of May. As of today, the petition stands at 116,815 signs. White House has to deal with the matter, and in the case of a favorable decision, the eSports scene is heading for a major recognition.
