The World’s First AI-Based Esports Coach is a Global Success
– Press Release –
Budapest, 6th December 2018 – Hundreds of Overwatch gamers were waiting for the launch of the world’s first AI coach system, from which the first hundred packages were sold within 26 hours in a special pre-sale offer. Besides providing statistics, the unique coaching software also offers a complex training package for both casual and competitive gamers, giving them the opportunity to improve, for less than a real e-sport coach would cost. The international sale starts on 7th December, the developers are expecting the highest demand from the USA, Canada, Germany, and France.
The biggest demand for the pre-sales coaching packages came from the United States, Canada and Great Britain. From December, Omnicoach will be available worldwide, helping the improvement of casual and competitive gamers in a unique and practical way. ”Our relationship with the first hundred Omnicoach users was very intense. After the success of the first coaching packages and the initial user feedbacks, the Omnicoach team has decided to add additional features to improve the service for the international public launch. A recently released hero Ashe has been added to the coaching engine. Also, the development of a navigation panel is in progress, which will contain all the necessary information of a gameplay, presented in a very practical and compact way. The panel will enable users to review the key information of their VODs in a blink of an eye. The Omnicoach engine has more than 2000 individual, situation-specific tips. Exclusively for the launch we increased the pool of tips with an extra 400 and will continue to add new tips and exercises on a daily basis” said Alienteavend, Lead Overwatch Coach of Omnicoach.
The first hundred users came from 13 different countries. ”We expect that the biggest number of users will come from countries that are traditionally strong in e-sports such as the USA or Germany. From the early access launch in November, it became clear that the intention to improve is more and more popular in many countries. Our software provides a great opportunity for gamers, since it helps boost strategic thinking, encourages faster reactions and contributes to improving team play which is highly important in games like Overwatch” said IronDan, Co-founder of Omnicoach.
The reliability of the system (statistics, tips, and exercises) is ensured by the two-pillar analytical environment of Omnicoach: the software combines traditional image recognition with ongoing learning, therefore it is able to give very detailed personal suggestions. The benefits of the software are listed on the demo website. The international sales of Omnicoach is starting from 7th December. As for the future, the team is planning to expand the concept of the AI coaching for other popular games.
