Opinions of Indonesian Esports Athletes on the Meaning of Youth Pledge

The development of Indonesia cannot be separated from the role of young people. One of them is the Youth Pledge which played an important role in Indonesia’s independence thanks to the participation of young people from various ethnic groups and cultures throughout Indonesia.

It doesn’t feel like the pledge of youth has entered the age of 90. Of course as Indonesian youth, we must help the Indonesian nation to become better. One of them is esports which is dominated by young people.


Indonesia itself should be proud because its achievements in esports have been able to bring the name of the country to the international arena. So, we asked esports athletes about the meaning of the youth oath.

There is a reason for the selection of these athletes. In addition to their achievements, they have or will bring Indonesia’s name in the international arena. I myself choose esports athletes from different esports backgrounds.

“Regarding the oath of youth, I think it is a reminder of youth to maintain solidarity for the sake of Indonesia’s name everywhere, one of which is in youth-dominant esports activities.

Especially if you have brought the name of Indonesia outside, do not have the prestige of anyone who wakilin, we must support as much as possible to make the name Indo as well, right?

“The meaning of the youth oath today is how do we continue the spirit of ancient warriors to make Indonesia proud. In the past, youths made Indonesia proud by liberating Indonesia. Well, if today’s youth generation can make Indonesia proud by achieving, being creative

There are now many esports competitions on an international scale. In terms of the Indo esports team, it will definitely carry the name of Indonesia. Indonesia can even qualify for the international scale, in my opinion, it is already amazing even though they lose. If you win it is also good because the name Indonesia will definitely be carried too “

“In my opinion, it’s easy, to fight as much as possible in any activity that already involves the name and dignity of the Indonesian people.

For example, if we represent the name of Indonesia, we must do our best to appreciate the determination of millions of other youth groups who may not have had the opportunity to represent Indonesia. “

“In my opinion, the essence of the youth oath is unity. If I look at the Indonesian esports side, until now there are still many who have “ethnic groups” and pride themselves on their respective tribes and sometimes even demonize other tribes.

Even though we are basically the same as “Indonesian Youth”. So in my opinion, for Indonesian esports fighters, continue to excel according to our respective fields and expertise. For supporters, keep supporting Indonesian athletes who are already achieving especially at the international level, regardless of the end result “

– Andika “Ramstig“Rama Maulana – Player Simracing who represented Indonesia and was the only one from Asia at the Mercedes-AMG eRacing Final in Hockenheim, Germany.
