Yesterday we reported that a 15-year-old kid won a For Honor tournament in Japan that raised a lot of controversy. JCG Director has issued an apology and confirmed that it is now a rule that players under 18 can’t participate in any tournament in Japan.
The apology reads:
We deeply apologize for the inconvenience caused to the participants, viewers, and related parties without establishing the agreement on age restriction at “JCG For Honor” operated by JCG Co., Ltd.
It was a mistake made by the management. Even in the final match of the For Honor tournament held at “UBIDAY 2017”, the age of the competitor was not confirmed. I am very sorry for this inconvenience.
In the future, we will revise the participation age in accordance with the age classification mark of CERO.
