Aim Lab & DarkZero collab to Change Team Training
Aim Lab gets onboard with DarkZero Esports in an innovative and collaborative effort to change training programs for the future. The advanced platform by Aim Lab will enable the Rainbow Six Siege team to customize their training to player-specific focus and analytics.
With AI deeply embedded into each player’s unique style, strengths, weaknesses, and area of expertise, the Aim Lab program creates highly customized and targeted training. DarkZero’s GM, Brandon Carr, already has plans to use the combined platform to recruit and prepare new players to contend for titles in Rainbow Six Siege.
The future looks bright for the esports team and player training. 2021 will see DarkZero release education, training, and coaching initiatives in collaboration with the Aim Lab Academy for players. It will be an exciting development to watch for future betting odds, and one has to wonder if we can expect handicap odds to be affected by such programs.
