North American esports organisation DarkZero Esports (DZ) and AI performance platform Aim Lab have collaborated to build a Rainbow Six: Siege training program.
This partnership continues an ongoing collaboration between the two organisations, including the DarkZero x Aim Lab Pro-Am Tournament in 2020 featuring the first Aim Lab Combine for Rainbow Six: Siege.
DarkZero will work with Aim Lab to design new Rainbow Six: Seige training tasks and scenarios. One of the team’s founding members, Brandon ‘BC’ Carr, recently came back from retirement to coach for DZ. Carr will create video content and Siege-specific tasks and tutorials for Aim Lab users.
Carr said: “Aim Lab is integral in our esports program; we train and warm-up daily using Aim Lab tasks to isolate specific aiming mechanics. I’m looking forward to officially cementing our partnership and to continue designing Siege related tasks and creating tutorial content around them.”
Future integrations will include exclusive Aim Lab skins designed by graphic artist and DZ Art Director, Wayne ‘iamdeadbird’ Peacock, as well as a custom training map designed after the DarkZero headquarters in Las Vegas.
Zachary Matula, CEO of DarkZero, commented: “Aim Lab is one of the most innovative companies in the world and we are excited to grow our partnership with such an amazing group of people.”
Dr. Wayne Mackey, the founder of Aim Lab, added: “We are excited to partner with DarkZero to develop training programs and scouting tools that will support DarkZero in continuing to be one of the best teams in R6 Esports.”
According to a release, the esports organisation will continue to partner with Aim Lab as it expands into more esports titles.
Esports Insider says: It’s interesting to see how the esports industry has become so open to new talent. Just 10 years ago, the only way to ‘git gud’ was to practise on your own. These days, organisations and universities are teaming up to change that, especially when it comes to underrepresented groups.
