Railway model

Railway model(Tetsudo Mokei) is a certainScale-GaugebyRailway car-line OfmodelSay


From objects that are sized to be pinched with your fingertips to objects that are a fraction of the actual size and can be towed and straddled by a passenger trolley, general train models that operate like the real thing and the surrounding scenes It is called a "model train".Of course, besides the size, there are also differences between the actual railway and the model railroad.For example, the difference from the actual railway line is that while the curves of many tracks in the model railroad are monocentric curves, in the actual railway lines, transition curves are often inserted before and after the curve.[1]..In addition, in the case of train models, there are differences in the power supply method.

Initially it was an expensive hobby, but as it becomes more popular, small-sized models tend to become more popular, reflecting the housing situation of the common people.Long time agoTinplateMade oftoyAlthough the boundary with was ambiguous, the vehicle and gauge were gradually determined by the scale and gauge.Layout-DioramaThe standard for collecting and running on the railroad tracks to enjoy the scenery of the railroad has come to be set.

A product that is manufactured in 1/3 the size of a real railway at amusement facilities and can be used inside a passenger car (UK:Romney Hythe & Dim Church Railroad, Japan: Shuzenji, IzuRainbow Town) And full-scale prototype mockups of railway vehicles are also models, but these are not generally called railway models.Also,Plastic modelTrain models that cannot run, such as railroad models and figurines, are also distinguished from model railroads.

Unlike other types of models, the special feature of model railroads is that they arelineBecause it is a thing that runs on, it is with a vehicleGaugeIs always paired.ScaleThe size varies depending on the type, but it is summarized to a certain number of scales.This is to make it possible to use ready-made products by setting standards on a scale.

In the latter half of the Meiji era, Kikuya in Ueno and GinzaItoyaModel locomotives from Japan can now be lined up in[6], From Germany or America2,1,O gaugeEtc. were imported and gradually spread mainly to enthusiasts.Department stores in the Kanto and Kansai regions began to focus on model railroads, and the transformer (manufacturing Kanden Electric Mfg. Co., Ltd.) included in the domestic model railroad set sold at Mitsukoshi was painted with the Mitsukoshi logo mark.[7]..As a manufacturer before World War IIAsahiya (Osaka),Seki Denki Seisakusho,Nishio Otokichi Model Factory,Chiyoda Keiki KosakushoAnd so on, and is still openKawai modelIs.However, the model at that time was a luxury item and an expensive toy for the wealthy children.[Annotation 1][Annotation 2]..Seki Denki Seisakusho was exporting to the United States and the United Kingdom.[10].

First published in 1924, "Children's science』To Kiyoto Homma[Annotation 3][Annotation 4]Serialized model making articles such as how to make an electric locomotive and the layout of a garden railway.Then Ichiro Yamakita[12][Annotation 5]Serialized articles on electric locomotives and electricity-related productions.And the Children's Science Agency (laterScience teaching materials company[13]) Started selling parts of model railroads such as motors, wheels, rails, transformers, and held a children's science exhibition to contribute to the development of model railroads.[4]..Kiyoto Homma advocates "50mm gauge" in "Children's Science" magazine[Annotation 6]This was the forerunner of the standard gauge of model railroads in Japan.Although it is a scale of this era, the products released are about 1/40 of the suspension and pantograph,CouplerWas 1/20, and the car body was not unified from 1/21 to 1/30 according to each person's preference. "Scientific pictorial"How to make a model electric locomotive" was written by Ken Kasai on 1/30.35mm gaugeIs adopted. The electric locomotive of this standard won the highest award at the 1927st Model Country Exhibition hosted by Children's Science held at Nihonbashi Mitsukoshi in 1, and attracted attention.Railroad (magazine)』Promoted this gauge[4]..Manufacturers have come to follow suit and release products[16], 35mm gauge became the mainstream of Japanese model railroad standard before the war.A model club called Mitoikai (played 35) was founded, and the venue was rented for frequent public driving.News movieWas taken up by[17].. on the other handO gaugeSome enthusiasts enjoyed producing the 32mm gauge of origin at a scale of 1 / 40-1 / 42, and the finished product was also on sale from Chiyoda Keiki Kosakusho. 1938 "Model Railroad"[Annotation 7]Ichiro Yuyama in the magazine[Annotation 8]Announced "Standard Gauge of Model Railway".In this article, if you use an O gauge with a gauge of 35 mm compared to the 32 mm gauge that goes on a road unique to Japan, you can run on the same track for the American type, British type, and Japanese type (although the scale is adjusted).[Annotation 9]He explained the advantages of the O gauge and recommended 1/45 for the Japanese scale.However, the backlash from 35mm gauge advocates created a conflict between the two, which continued until Japan lost World War II.[18][Annotation 10].. Also"Science and model] To "16 gaugeRegarding Japanese standards "Yoshiyo YamazakiWas also under attack with non-national thieves[20].

At the end of World War II, American officers who loved model railroads came to the model stores to order elaborate and expensive models, and the model stores became booming.EventuallyO gauge,HO gaugeBegan to export and tried to earn foreign currency[21].Tenshodo,Katsumi model storeHas been highly acclaimed for its high-end brass products for the United States.In addition, Toby model stores' products for Europe had a good reputation for details, running performance, and beautiful painting compared to the plastic products that were mass-produced in Europe at that time.OtherFujiyama, United = Joint,Kumada Trading, Orion and other foreign-type specialized manufacturers[22].1960 eraTo become and16 gaugeBecame popular mainly among enthusiasts[Annotation 11], Japanese-style vehicle products are mainly exported by manufacturers.

For model railroads, scales, gauges, and electric ones電流-VoltageThere are various standards such as, and they are commercialized based on those standards.Also, if you make your own, it is often made to meet those standards.

The standard of the model railroad is the manufacturer and the group of lovers of the model railroad (NMRA,MOROPSince it is decided by (etc.), there are differences depending on the country / region, manufacturer, etc., and although there is commonality, they are not completely the same.The standards of each region are generally the same except for the difference between the metric system and the imperial system, but the names and scales may differ from each other.In this paper, we mainly use the names, gauges, and scales that are commonly used in Japan.

The name of the standard is called gauge in Japan and the United Kingdom, and scale in the United States (NMRA standard, etc.).

As a general rule, each standard is realStandard gaugeIt is a reduced gauge of 1435 mm (standard gauge model).In addition, there are narrow gauges that reproduce narrow gauges narrower than standard gauges and broad gauges that reproduce wide gauges.

Initially, it was represented by the distance between the centers of the two rails that make up the railroad track, but now it represents the distance inside the head of the rail.

If you shrink the real thing, you can decide the gauge as you like, but in reality there are a certain numberGaugeIs aggregated in.

Standard gauge and narrow gauge / broad gauge

As a general rule, the standard gauge of the model is the one that is reduced based on the actual standard gauge (1435 mm).Although many narrow gauges are found in the actual products in Japan and South Africa, the models on the market often have standard gauge specifications.In Finland and Ireland, the actual product has a broad gauge, but the models on the market often have standard gauge specifications.

  • Narrow gauge: A general term for standards that model the actual narrow gauge railway (narrow gauge).There are relatively many railroad tracks and vehicles on the market.
  • Broad gauge: A general term for standards that model the actual broad gauge railway (broad gauge).There are only a few railroad tracks and vehicles on the market, and very few enthusiasts adopt it.In addition, the European NEM standard treats broad gauges up to 1700 mm as the same standard as standard gauge.
  • Narrow gauge and broad gauge standard notation
In European style, "XXm","twentieth","XXi (XXf)","XXp".The correspondence between these names and the actual gauge is as shown in the table below, and there is no one-to-one correspondence with the actual gauge.

Course and fine

Meaning "coarse".Since the model railroad was developed from toys, it was one of the indispensable conditions that it was difficult to derail.Therefore, it is expensive compared to the real thingFlangeWith thick tiresTurnoutNeeded a flog with a wide flange way. Since the "course" is not a toy, but emphasizes running performance (practicality), it often becomes the standard for model railroads.
Meaning "fine".After that, some people wanted a "fine" model.A group of models made of wheels and railroad tracks, especially points, as if they were made smaller, is called a fine gauge.A term used in all scale and gauge model railroads.Although it involves precision work, it often comes at the expense of driving performance in lightweight model railroads.It may include work to bring the gauge that is too wide closer to the scale.O gaugeIn the above, groups such as Proto48 are active.HO gaugeThe following is quite difficult, but groups such as Proto87 are studying.

Toy train tin plate

In one field of model railroad,Scale modelIs a term for.Many of the early model railroads were of this type, especially in the United States.Originally a high-class model, around 1936, when the era of mass consumption for Christmas gifts arrived.LionelAfter presenting a system that could be developed, it was popularized as an American standard model at once.Literally "tin plate" is a term that refers to a tin plate model railroad and is synonymous with the word hi-rail.It is a toy model railroad that uses tall hollow rails, and is designed to run high-flange vehicles, and the central three-wire current collection method is the mainstream.Recognized as a hobby not only for young people but also for adults, a large-scale exchange meeting and swap meet will be held for several days.

In the case of O gauge, the scale is about 1/64 to 1/48, but it is not constant.If you make it small, even a large machine can run with a small radius, so some products have a scale of 1/58.Although the tin plate has many O gauges,American flyerThen there is also an S gauge.This has adopted a two-wire system from the beginning.

Similar products in Europe and Japan are sometimes called toy trains or tin plates.In Japan, O gauge and 16 gaugeShortened type (shorty)The product is considered to be applicable.

AC method

Märklin,LionelThe central three-wire system is adopted, but the AC system does not necessarily mean that it is a three-wire system, and although it is a small number, it is an AC two-wire system or a DC three-wire system (described later). There is also a model railroad.1930 eraIs efficientrectifierAnd powerfulpermanent magnet For consumerIt wasn't on the market, soSeries winding motorelectromagnetThe combination with the direction change device (reversing machine) was adopted.InsulationWheelIt is still very popular because you don't have to use.

With the progress of electronics, the number of users who prefer the multiple control method (described later) has increased.Alternating currentThat saidSine waveThe number of AC-driven models that are not is increasing.

DC method

To get direct currentStorage batteryOr smallrectifierNeeded.automotive industryIn the developed United States,Selenium rectifierHas begun to be marketed for consumer use, so the standard "DC 12 V" was established by diverting this.Normally, a DC two-wire system that collects electricity only from the left and right rails is used, but there are a few DC three-wire model railroad models.TricksThen, there is a DC three-wire system "Trix Express" as opposed to a DC two-wire system "Trix International".

In the DC two-wire system, there are many products that move forward mainly when positive electricity is flowing through the rail on the right side when viewed from the vehicle.[30].

The advantage of the DC method was that it was possible to freely choose forward and backward without a mechanical reversing device.AC methodSeries winding motor OfFieldIf the magnetic field was set to a unidirectional magnetic field with an in-vehicle rectifier (this is called Polarized), the direction of travel could be switched with a single switch at hand.Second World WarLater Thepermanent magnet OfFieldAnd this isSequel motorAlthough it is not the most suitable type of motor for driving model vehicles, it has become widely used.

  • Series winding motorAt the start of the motor vehicle電流In proportion to the square oftorqueIs generated, it is easy to reproduce the actual departure (starting) situation, the current value decreases when cruising, the rotation drops on the uphill, the current value rises, and the traction force increases.On the other hand, with a permanent magnetFieldIn the motor with, the magnetArmatureBy sucking, even if you turn the wheelgearBecause the motor does not rotate through, the actual railroad vehicle惰行I can't reproduce how I do[Annotation 16].

In the current most advanced drive system, the rotation speed of the motor is driven by an acceleration / deceleration curve that imitates the real thing by electronic control, and Bemf (back electromotive force) is measured to keep the rotation speed constant.Also, it is not attracted to permanent magnets.Ironless core type motor (coreless motor)AdoptReverse drive worm gearPush and move in combination with (Free-rolling mechanism ) Motor vehicles have been put into practical use.

The voltage of 12 V is as mentioned above.automotive industryIt was a standard derived from, but when the track becomes longElectric resistanceCan no longer be ignored, and there is a debate about increasing the voltage, which can reduce the current value and reduce the voltage drop.1980 eraIt started in. There was also a move to boost to 24 V, but with the adoption of an efficient motor, that voice disappeared.O gauge,G gaugeThen.LayoutDue to the large scale of the 12 V car, 16-18 V may be adopted in some cases.

Multiple control method

It is a general term for a method of individually controlling a plurality of vehicles on the same track.Not only driving a vehiclehorn,Headlight-taillightBlinking of is also included in this concept.1960 eraFrom around that time, direct current was mixed with alternating current and flowed.frequencyAs a method of identifying byGeneral ElectricAstrack (Automatic Simultaneous Train Controls ,ASTRAC), And although there was a method of flowing alternating current and direct current at the same time,analogThe method was limited to controlling several units at most.There was also a Märklin delta system that used three-wire tracks.デ ジ タ ルIn the formulaHornbyThere were ZERO-1 of Märklin and Märklin Digital of Märklin.There was also a digital type called CTC-16.Both are dedicateddecoderIt was not possible to run on the same track as a conventional vehicle except for some parts.

2000 eraLaterDigital command control(DCC) has become a global standard, and vehicles equipped with connectors that are presumed to be equipped with DCC are becoming widespread in Europe and the United States. In theory, DCC can issue commands to 10 units at the same time when the address length is 1024 bits.

Drive system

When the model railroad appeared, it was designed to be pushed by hand.With the progress of the times, it became possible to drive the royal fern and run on its own by steam, and finally it became possible to control it from the outside by electricity.

It was an evolution to a smaller electric model that could be enjoyed indoors, rather than steam-driven, which had to be left unattended when humans had to ride and control it or start moving.Of course steam driveLive steamAlthough it has evolved specially as a model, the electric model has moved to a smaller size.

Wind-up drive

In the early model railroadMainspringThere was a power thing of the formula.They were called spring motors.It is still used in some tin railroad toys.

Method using steam engine

Initially, there were many things that combined a simple boiler and a single-acting oscillating engine, and once they started running, they continued to run until they ran out of water or fuel.In the meantime, a model that had a structure exactly the same as the real thing and was driven by a vehicle carrying a human became the mainstream.This is the same as the real thing in water supply, bonfire, operation, turbine generator andInjectorSomething to equip has appeared.In addition, a model has also appeared in which an articulated locomotive put into practical use in the United States is connected by the same ball joint air supply / exhaust pipe as the actual one.In addition, a model that uses a steam turbine to generate electricity and runs on an electric motor has also been prototyped.

It was temporarily obsolete due to the spread of electric models that can be easily driven, but the hurdles for realization are lower than before due to the entry of some enthusiastic enthusiasts and new manufacturers supported by them from the mid-1970s. It has become to.In addition, driving events have been held in various places where enthusiasts gather.

In addition,MärklinExisting manufacturers such as are also releasing new products.Advances in electronics have made it possible to radio control small models.1 gaugeThen many people have come to enjoy it. In the 2000sHornbyからOO gaugeThe electric steam locomotive was released, and the finished product that can control the whistle from the outside was also released.They areLive steamCalled,Garden railwayIt is enjoyed as one of the fields.

Method using an electric motor

The electric model started at the same time as the power distribution to the home.At the timePower InputIs because the performance was low for the high price.Alternating currentIn some areas before the start of power distribution to homesDCIt was distributed at.

Electrification was realized by adding a third rail for current collection to the steam engine or spring-type two-wire track that was initially adopted.To adopt the two-wire systemWheels and axlesTheInsulationSince I had to do it, I had to modify the vehicles that I had sold so far, but if I learned from the real thing and collected electricity from the third rail in the center, there would be no inconsistency with the previous products.In Japan, there was no real central three-line railway, so this type of current collection method was disliked as a toy, but in Europe and the United States, it was accepted as being the same as the real one.

at firstSeries winding motorMade by myselfTransformerorResistorWas controlled by.Some resistors used saline solution.SmallmotorAfter it was released as a model, the size of the motor vehicle that houses the motor was decided.In other words, the miniaturization of the model size was also the history of the miniaturization of the motor size.FieldMove the coil to the extension of the shaft, make a double-axis motor and make an axleTrolleyThe ingenuity at this time is remarkable.

The field iselectromagnetThe series-wound motor rotates with both AC and DC, just like the real thing.Locomotive,Electric trainIt had characteristics suitable for driving.At startup電流Starts in proportion to the square oftorqueIs generated, and the current decreases at the same time as the rotation increases.speedGradually according toVoltageIf you raise the value, you will be able to drive realistically.However, in order to reverse the direction of travel, the polarity of the field had to be reversed.Lionel,MärklinEt al. Operate by momentarily interrupting the currentrelayEtc. were developed and put on the market.HoweverTurnoutMay malfunction when passing through, due to the rotation of the motorCentrifugal forceA malfunction prevention device using the above has been developed by some enthusiasts.

1930 eraAt that time, an attempt to drive DC began.In some areas it was distributed by direct current, but in most areas it was distributed by alternating current.The United States of AmericaThen.motorizationByAutomobileSmall forrectifierWas released for consumer use, and the field current was changed.Selenium rectifierIt was devised to rectify with and reverse the polarity of the traveling current to reverse it.In addition, 12 V for automobiles was adopted as the standard voltage.

1940 eraTo become andpermanent magnetWas made into a fieldMagnet motorIs now on the market.It's small and lightweightpower consumptionThere were few, butMinute winding characteristicsIt was a thing that had a given voltage and the number of revolutions was directly proportional.Then, control by voltage control by electronic components is preferable to current control by resistance.this isTransistor controllerPromotes the development ofLeostatWas expelled.

In the magnet motor, cogging (called teething in English), in which the field attracts the armature and makes it difficult to move when stopped, was unavoidable, and the locomotive could not be pushed and moved by hand.If you turn the shaft of the magnet motor by hand, you will feel that it is caught in a specific position as if you were rolling a dice, but if you press the locomotives of Lionel and Märklin that used a series-wound motor by hand, you can press it against the rail. The motor rotates.Also, recently, there is no cogging and you can get more torque with smooth running.Coreless motorAnd cogging, but can produce stronger torqueBrushless motorIs also becoming widespread.

For power transmission from the motor to the wheelsWorm gearIs often used.Spur gear,Bevel gearIs rarely used, but some high-end models are a type of worm gear.Coasting gearThe use of is also permitted.That is one step (less) in the formerpartsIn) bigGear ratioThis is because it is very convenient in terms of space saving and motor arrangement that the motor shaft and the drive shaft are orthogonal to each other.HoweverBraking deviceSince many worm gears used in model railroads cannot be driven in reverse from the viewpoint of safety, they are special.clutchA method of automatically disconnecting gears using the method has also appeared.However, this method was transient and was not a specification of the character reflected in the product.on the other hand,Coasting gearThe problem of reverse drive has been solved in the model using.

A coreless motor, a type of magnet motor, does not have an iron coreMoving coilWith a type motor, if you decelerate it with a spur gear, you can create a motor vehicle that pushes and moves.However, the gears that can be stored in the limited space had a gear ratio of about 1: 4, the traction force was too weak, and the maximum speed was too fast.1984The coasting gear was developed in Japan, and a motor vehicle with both high efficiency and quietness was realized.

In these electric models, all motor vehicles move in the same way on the same track.[Annotation 17]..But then unsatisfied enthusiasts head for multiple control, which isDigital command controlWas realized as.

Method using internal combustion engine

By some enthusiasts and manufacturersInternal combustion engineA model railroad equipped with is manufactured.It is produced in small numbers but has been handed down by enthusiastic enthusiasts.For internal combustion enginesgasoline engine,Glow engineLike a real gas-electric transmissionGeneratorThings that are driven by an electric motor and propelled by an electric motor,DeceleratorThroughDriving wheelThere is something that drives.AlsoReciprocating enginenot onlygas turbineSome enthusiasts also make things that are powered by.

Sound system

1940 eraMore electricgramophoneConnected to the rail and mounted on the vehiclespeakerThere was a structure that made a sound from.Then improved,1970 eraOf steam locomotivesrodMakes a blast sound in synchronization with the movement ofPFM soundHas appeared.Also, the audio signal from an external sound sourcewirelessIn-vehicleReceiving machineThere was also something that was received by and played back from the speaker.1990 eraThe ones equipped with digital sound sources became widespread. Since the 2000s, in addition to the DCC decoder with sound function, there are also things that use conventional analog controllers such as Quantum Sound and MRC Synchro Sound Box, and output sound from the in-vehicle digital sound source according to the voltage change of the vehicle. It became so.

How to enjoy

There is a way to enjoy putting a train model on a railroad track and running it like a real railroad car.Small models can be easily handled on a table or floor, and these are called "zashiki layout" or "floor layout".Large models can be enjoyed by laying them in the garden like a "garden railway".
Also with a sceneLayout・ Vehicles may be run on the diorama.Although layouts are often produced and owned by enthusiasts themselves, some model stores open the layout diorama provided as part of the service to customers, and the layout is rented for an hour for a fee. To doRental layoutThere is also.
Furthermore, in recent years, it has become possible to enjoy driving while watching the scene from the driver's seat by installing an ultra-small TV camera in the leading vehicle and combining a monitor TV and a controller that receive the video wirelessly. It was.In this case, you can enjoy the scene from inside the layout diorama tunnel.
There are many commercialized vehicles, even if they are Japanese models.There is also a way to enjoy collecting this.There are various ways to collect vehicles depending on the person, and collect vehicles by deciding the theme such as your favorite country, region, age, railway company, model maker, vehicle type, train, type.However, in addition to simply purchasing the finished product and viewing it, in the case of a model railroad, there are cases where the desired vehicle is modified or made by yourself, and there is also a way to enjoy running the collection by creating a layout diorama that matches the theme.
Build a vehicle
Model work is one of the basic ways to enjoy model hobbies, including model railroads.There are many different types of vehicles that can be manufactured in one bite, but the finished vehicle is meticulously processed to make it more suitable for the actual vehicle, vehicle modifications that create different formats and specifications from the original vehicle, brass, etc. It is roughly divided into scratch builds (all self-made) that build vehicles from materials such as plastic and parts.
Make a layout diorama
Another model work for model railroads is the production of a layout diorama with a scene.A group ceremony with members in the model railroad club (Module layout) And split layout diorama.Even long trains, which are difficult for individuals to realize, are relatively easy to realize with this method.
participate to the event
There are ways to enjoy it, such as observing events held by manufacturers and clubs, exchanging impressions about products such as workmanship and usability, and participating in exchange meetings and second-hand markets called swap meet.

Standing position as sports

Computer gamesSportsIt is controversial to classify as[66][67][68].. Some have pointed out the growing popularity of esports as a legitimate reason to qualify some games as sports. On the other hand, some argue that the game will never reach "real sports" status.[69].. But popularity isn't the only reason: "Careful planning, precise timing, skilled performance.[70]”Is the element to classify as a sport, arguing that all traditional or non-traditional sports do not require physical exercise or an outdoor playground. In 2013, I laughed at the topic of "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel"[71].. 2014 Technology Conference Asked About Twitch AcquisitionESPN Of(English editionThe president (at that time) described esports as "not a sport ... a sport."[72][73][74][75][76][77].. 2015,International eSports FederationHosted by the World Championships, a panel was invited to invite guests from the international sports industry to discuss their perception of upcoming esports as a globally legitimate sporting activity.[78].

China was one of the first countries to recognize eSports as a full-fledged sport in 2003, despite concerns about addictive computer games at the time. The government has encouraged esports and said that participating in esports will also “train the body for China”.[79].. Furthermore, by the beginning of 2019, China willHuman Resources Social Security DepartmentEsports player is recognized as a formal profession in its recommendations, and not only players but also operators[80].. Based on this, more than 2019 people have registered as professional gamers by July 7, and the department expects to have more than 10 million people in such professions in five years.[81].

In 2013, Canadian League of Legends player Shiphtur (Danny Le) became the first professional gamer to get an American P-1A visa as an "internationally recognized athlete".[82][83].. 2014,トルコMinistry of Youth and Sports started issuing esports player licenses to professionally certified athletes[84][85].. 2016,FranceThe government started working on a project to control and recognize esports[86].フィリピンThe Games and Entertainment Commission of the United States has begun issuing competition licenses to professionally qualified athletes since July 2017.[87][88].

In order to popularize esports as a legitimate sport, several esports events have been held alongside traditional international sports competitions.2007 Asian Indoor GamesFor the first time, alongside other sports competitions, it was noted as an official competition where esports competitions were held. After thatAsia Indoor GamesAnd successorAsia Indoor Martial Arts GamesTherefore, esports competitions have always been held as awards for medals and exhibition events.

In 2018 and 2019,World sailing (English editionHeld to show that major sports federations are accepting esports[92].

Recognized as an Olympic sport, and adopted in 2021

OlympicIs also seen as a potential way to justify esports. In October 2017International Olympic Committee At the summit held by the (IOC), he acknowledged the growing popularity of esports, saying, ``Competitive'esports' can be considered as sports activities and the athletes involved are those in traditional sports competitions. We are preparing and training at the same level as," but concludes that the games used for the Olympics must follow the "Olympic rules and regulations".[93].

The world of sports is constantly changing, and with the start of hosting events at the IOC, esports has grown significantly. IOCThomas BachAccording to the chairman, there are two issues left to make esports an Olympic sport, one is the need to limit violent gameplay. The other cites the lack of an international governing body to fine-tune esports.[94][90].. On the issue of violence, Bach admitted that modern sports were born out of real fierce combat, but "sports are a civilized representation of such battles" and "if so-called murder games, the Olympic Games. Different from the values ​​of[90].. IOCNBA 2K series,FIFA seriesIt was proposed to approve esports, focusing on games that simulate real sports, such as[95].

The issue of esports does not prevent the IOC from exploring how and with what potential esports will be incorporated into future Olympics. In July 2018, IOCInternational Sports Federation (GAISF) isepic Games OfMark Raine,Blizzard Entertainment Of(English edition, Esports player TLO (Dario Vunsch) and(English edition(Jacob Lyon),(English editionInviting e-sports leaders such as (Kim Se-young), “to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of esports and the potential for future development, and work together for the mutual benefit of all sports in the coming years Symposium on how to collaborate on methods"[96][97].. Therefore, the IOC has examined the possibility of esports through the exhibition of games.IntelWas sponsored by the IOC,2018 Pyeongchang OlympicsBefore "Starcraft 2" and "SteepOf the eventsponsor5 Korean e-sports athletesTorch relayparticipated in[98][99].. It is a similar exhibition(English editionIt is,2016 Rio de Janeiro OlympicsIt was held in parallel with, but not supported by the IOC.

In Japan, it has been evaluated as a major base for the game industry,2020 Tokyo OlympicsSince then, lawmakers and groups have become involved in boosting esports.Although e-sports in Japan was not popular because it imposes restrictions on game tournaments with high prizes due to the balance with the prize labeling law, gambling and crimes related to lottery (criminal law).[16][18], Efforts to solve this problem began in the latter half of 2017[17].. For the 2020 Summer Olympics,Tokyo 2020 Organizing CommitteeAt the suggestion, four esports organizations will work with Japan's leading consumer organizations to exclude esports competitions from gambling crime regulations.LDPBelongingMember of the House of RepresentativesIsTakeo KawamuraIs an online game/esportsParliamentary LeagueWas launched,Japan esports federation (JeSU) supported and promoted esports in Japan[100].. As a result, professional athletes from other sports in Japan are now able to obtain exemption licenses that allow esports players to play, as well as the mechanics required to play professionally.[17].. This license allows athletes to participate in many esports competitions and, for the first time in mid-July 2018, allows dozens of players to top 7 players via tournaments held by some computer game publishers. It was issued[100].. In addition, the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee plans several esports events by the 2020 Games.[17].

2024 Paris OlympicsOrganizing committee discussed the need to include elements of esports to maintain a relationship between the Olympics and the younger generation, and discussed with the IOC and various esports professional bodies on esports events during the Games.[101]..

Play over the internet

The easiest way to play esports is via the Internet. To determine the exact outcomecheatThis method is often used for entertainment or practice, although there are problems with how to deal with behavior and network delays.[105].

Each player needs a means of communication.IRCIs popular because it not only allows you to create separate channels for teams, leagues, and other game-related gatherings, but it's also easy to find.(English editionWas originally a first-person shooterQuakeCreated for online play, but also used for other games, making it the largest IRC network.From there, the competition will be held on each team's server according to their own rules.Collaboration with other players is essential in team-based games, and when using voice communication to collaborate within a team,DiscordlikeVoIPApplications are also used[106][107].

Reasons why Japan is behind e-sports

The origin of e-sports is the "LAN party" that was born naturally in the United States.In South Korea, around 1997, the Korean government began to focus on the IT industry and established a high-speed network in the country.As a result, the number of Internet cafes called "PC Bunch" in Japan has increased rapidly. Online games are available in "PC Bunch", and the strategy game "StarCraft" was a big hit. From around 1999, the term "esports" began to be used in Korea, and the director of the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism also called the game "esports." In 2000, the world's first international esports event "World Cyber ​​Games" test competition was held.The total prize pool was US $ 20 and 17 players from 174 countries participated.With this tournament as a trigger, "e-sports" developed rapidly in South Korea and became a pioneer of "e-sports". In 2008, the International Esports Federation, which controls e-sports around the world, was established in Busan, South Korea.In Japan, there are game centers and home-use game machines, and the place where game lovers gather is the game center, which does not require a "LAN party" or "PC bunch", and because home-use game machines were widespread, PCs I'm not familiar with the game.Also, due to legal issues, the big prize money competition could not be held.For that reason, it has become an e-sports underdeveloped country.[174].

Controversy over high rewards

In Japan, there are restrictions on the holding of prize-winning competitions due to legal issues, and there are the following recommendations regarding this issue.

At the event, Hamamura argued, "The professional licensing system is the result of repeated discussions with the Consumer Affairs Agency."

Problems with esports

Olympic esports issues

Aiming to enter the Olympic industryInternational Federation TheInternational eSports Federation (IeSF). IeSF is stillInternational Sports Federation Although I could not join (GAISF), in July 2018, an event called "IOC-GAISF eSports Forum" was held. In 7, the Asian Games were held in Jakarta, Indonesia, and esports was held as an open competition. From these movements, rumors such as "Are you considering e-sports for the Olympics?" were reported. I visited the eventInternational Olympic Committee (IOC)Thomas BachBut esports are inconsistent with the Olympic values ​​and can't be accepted at the moment (because "Killer Games" promotes violence). As a result, Takashi Kiso of the International Casino Research Institute said the rejection was confirmed. But on the other hand, Bach said, "as is." In addition, Takashi Kiso cites the reason that the copyright of the game software maker becomes a problem as a reason not to be adopted for the Olympics.[178].

Asian Games Issues

In 2018, the Asian Games were held in Jakarta, Indonesia, and e-sports was held as a reference competition.The sport is "Winning Eleven 2018(Konami), "Starcraft 2" (Blizzard Entertainment), "League of Legends" (Riot Games), "Hearthstone" (Blizzard Entertainment), "Clash Royale" (Super cell), "Arena of Valor』(Tencent Games) 6 titles.However, when I opened the lid, 6 out of 5 titles were Chinese companies.TencentIs a title that involves, and has become a competition for Tencent.[179].

Problems with JeSU (Japan eSports Union)

*JeSU is not the only e-sports organization in Japan

The lie of the professional license system

When JeSU was inaugurated, it said that it issued a professional license to realize a tournament of high prize money, but the view of the Consumer Affairs Agency is different. Shinji Omoto, Director of Display Countermeasures Section, Consumer Affairs Agency, said, ``If esports tournament participants work to attract the audience with excellent technology and get prize money as reward, the prize money will be "It doesn't correspond to the "freebies" in the law.", and the prize money can be received and there is no problem even without a professional license.[180].

From the perspective of the Consumer Affairs Agency, some companies are opening their own game tournaments in such a way that they do not join JeSU. For example, in the esports program "YUBIWAZA" on the Mainichi Broadcasting, a "YUBIWAZA CUP" tournament with a prize of 100 million yen is held, and it is specified as a participation condition that you do not have a JeSU authorized professional license.[181].

The Consumer Affairs Agency gave a suggestion from JeSU about the pro-licensing system, but simply replied, "It may be easy to understand," but has never recommended that the Consumer Affairs Agency create a pro-licensing system. [182].

eSports does not require a professional license system

The 2019 JeSU activity report & presentation was held at the Tokyo Game Show, and the results of the response form to the pre-confirmation procedures for the application of laws based on the non-action letter system were announced. Among them, regardless of whether they are professional amateurs or not, they get the prize money and get the answer that they "do not violate the view law and criminal law".[183]Is the answer that Consumer Affairs Agency has been consistent with for a long time.

In this announcement, Takashi Kiso, an international casino research institute who had pointed out that the explanation of JeSU's professional license system was a lie, has said that JeSU himself has proved that "the professional system is unnecessary".[184].

Pro-licensing policy issues

JeSU's professional license is given when you get a good result at a JeSU official game competition. However, it is written in the agreement that if you have this professional license, you will be disposed of in an unofficial competition with a prize (a competition that ignores the so-called wind management law, where game centers and internet cafes give prizes from stores sponsored) There is. Takashi Kiso, the director of the International Casino Research Institute, says that as long as the Internet cafe is operating properly, it is basically an industry outside the scope of the wind management law, so it is a wind management law to hold game competitions and provide prizes and products. JeSU has criticized that he does not understand the entrepreneurial law because it is not a violation[185].

At the official World Championship “Capcom Cup 2018” of “Street Fighter V Arcade Edition” sponsored by Capcom America in the US, Momochi, a professional gamer, was ranked 7th and was expected to receive a prize of 50 yen. However, the "Capcom Cup" has suddenly become a JeSU official recognition tournament, and Momochi does not have a JeSU license (from the standpoint opposite JeSU's pro-licensing system). For some reason, I could not get the prize money for some reason and it was reduced to 10 yen. Previous Capcom Cups have been held in the US, and JeSU has nothing to do with it, so they have received the prize money as is, and JeSU and Capcom have been criticized for this response.[186].. Isn't it possible for EVO JAPAN to be reduced due to this kind of turmoil? I was worried, but I have won the winning prize of 150 million yen as it is.

The winning prize of 2019 million yen "Puzzle & Dragons" was held at TGS500, and the middle school student "Yuwa" won the championship. "Yuwa" has a JeSU "Japan, eSports, Junior License", but is treated as a semi-professional by the rules of JeSU and cannot receive prize money only with trophies and supplementary products. JeSU has a stance of entrusting it to the tournament manager, as there is no problem in getting tournament prize money even when younger. It is not a mandatory rule. According to Yukio Noyasu, a game journalist, there are junior high school professional athletes in other real sports, shogi and go, so there should be no problem with junior high school professional gamers and winning prizes. But wasn't it supposed to be a rule to get a prize? Said that it cannot be escaped[187].

JeSU is an e-sports organization that does not exist worldwide

JeSU has many game makers and people involved in CESA as its members.Japan esports promotion association Mr. Aoki of (JEF) says that developers of esports games, which are gaining popularity all over the world, rarely join the national esports associations abroad. It points out that there is basically no esports organization with an operating system like JeSU overseas.[188].

Problems as a profession

Since esports players are unstable in their profession, the reality is that it is quite difficult to eat only with prize money unless they continue to win and become famous. Also, if it is a popular game and the population is not large, the prize money is small.Part-time jobThere are also many people who are active. Although it is a small number,Game distributionSome make a living by.

Short career and life after retirement

Esports games are generally said to have short player lives because quick reflexes are required.[189][190].. There is also a view that athletes lack the necessary social skills for post-retirement activities.[189].

Problems with Japanese esports

Low interest in esports

In July 2018, MyVoiceCom announced the results of a questionnaire survey on e-sports. 7% of the respondents answered that they know e-sports specifically and have heard of their names.On the other hand, 43.9% of the respondents answered that they were not interested in e-sports or not so much.[191].

In February 2020, AirTrip announced the results of a questionnaire survey on e-sports. The popularity of esports was over 02% for all generations, but the majority of 8% answered that they were not interested in esports.[192].

Galapagos competition title

The world's most popular e-sports title is the PC game with a user population of 1 million.league of legends","Dota 2There is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) such as ", which is a popular genre, but the population is small in Japan.In particular, "Dota 2" is a title with a total prize pool of over 30 billion yen, but it is not well known in Japan. At the TGS2019 e-sports booth,Puzzle”Is forming a line, while there were only about 2 people including the interview team in the audience seats of the“ Dota 10 ”Japan national team deciding match.[193].
