Beasley Esports, the parent company of Overwatch League franchise Houston Outlaws, has announced a partnership with the FPS aim training platform KovaaK’s.
As a result, KovaaK’s has been named Houston Outlaws’ official training platform throughout the 2022 season.
In addition to providing training tools, KovaaK’s will also host multiple aiming events throughout the season. This includes the Dead Eye Showdown aiming event, which will allow fans to compete against Houston Outlaws players.
Moreover, KovaaK’s will also introduce the Line of Site feature, which spotlights match highlights on Houston Outlaws’s social media.
Lori Burgess, Chief Operating Officer for the Houston Outlaws, spoke on the announcement: “We are dedicated to providing the highest level of training for our players in our quest to win while delivering unique and memorable experiences for Outlaws Nation. Our partnership with KovaaK’s will help us achieve both goals.”
First launched in 2018, KovaaK’s 2.0 is an FPS training software that offers a variety of FPS training tools. This repoedly includes guided training, performance analysis, realistic physics and more than 15,000 training scenarios.
Duncan Haberly, CEO and Co-Founder of The Meta, the team behind KovaaK’s, commented: “We’re fans first and foremost, so it’s incredibly exciting to support the Houston Outlaws with our best-of-breed KovaaK’s training and analytics tools — and be a part of the Outlaws journey to the OWL Championship!”
Esports Insider says: Partnerships with training platforms have become a standard among esports organisations, as well as tournament organisers, so it’s not a surprise to see Houston Outlaws team up with one before it kicks off the new Overwatch season. Thanks to this collaboration, which will also see KovaaK’s featured on Houston Outlaws social media channels, both the team and the platform will be able to further expand their reach.
