The fifth german esports survey

Through the first four eSport studies, we were able to gain important insights into the training/sleeping, nutrition, health behaviour and pain of esports players. You can see the results in the research findings. However, a lot is still unexplored and there is still a great need for research in esports to structure eSports even more professional and social accessable. Therefore we have developed a new eSport survey with the topics of posture and physical complaints.
