Female players and gender equality story in esports

Still know gender equality in esports is important, but between male gamers and female gamers there are very basic differences.
Last November, Xiaomeng “Liooon” Li became the first female gamer to win a major championship from BlizzCon and Hearthstone. After the championship, she advised the girls out there who want to succeed with esports to believe in themselves and completely escape from gender stereotypes.

Despite saying that, it is not easy to do so. According to research from Michigan State University, women’s ability to engage with games is influenced by many external factors, but mainly from the negative actions of male colleagues.
That makes the girls’ trust and motivation easily impaired. In addition, research has also shown that male gamers are better able to endure and rotate pressure, while female gamers often experience reduced gaming performance when experiencing psychological problems.
At the end of February, the all-female team of Vaevictis Esports had to disband because of its poor performance. While the levels of these 5 girls are below the general level of the tournament, their adaptability and progress are also limited by psychological gender differences.
According to a recent survey by Amnesty International, women make up 37% of people appearing on the internet, including female gamers who are insulted, harassed and intimidated, greatly affecting the their development. The small number of female gamers is also a problem when not all girls are really passionate and pursue a career of gamers to the end.
