Why is there an age restriction of 17+ ?

The decision to limit eligibility in the Championship Series to players 17 and older isn’t based on any Oceanic standard. The Championship Series is a pro sports league and its players will be training and competing for most of the year. Pro players in some instances will be living with their teams, traveling extensively and making an adult commitment to eSports. They need to be able to make decisions and sacrifices that require a high degree of maturity. Going pro is now a full-time job and one that requires a great deal of commitment. We believe that 17 is the appropriate minimum age for a player to operate at this level.
