- Aim Lab and DarkZero Esports have come together to make a Rainbow Six Siege training program
- It will test and improve competitive players' skills through various tasks
- The program is a part of the ongoing collaboration between the two parties
DarkZero's field experience and Aim Lab's technological solutions will complement each other for the creation of a new Rainbow Six Siege training program.
Were Tech Meets Experience
The popular AI performance platform Aim Lab will be working together with the DarkZero Esports organization for the creation of a training program for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The tech-savvy of Aim Lab will come together with DarkZero's field experience to create a training course unlike any other.
The two parties will design all kinds of new tasks that test and train the players' ability to react quickly and make viable decisions in-game.
The development team will be aided by the years of experience of DarkZero's member Brandon “BC” Carr. BC had previously retired but returned to support the team as a coach. He will now create videos, tutorials, and tasks for the training program. Not only that, but BC considers Aim Lab as a crucial tool for the team's success. The coach shared his excitement for working with Aim Lab on the program:
“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.”
BC isn't the only one who is excited to collaborate with Aim Lab. The CEO of the DZ organization, Zachary Matula, also expressed joy in working with the performance platform:
“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.”
The wholesome emotions aren't one-sided, as Aim Lab's founder Dr. Wayne Mackey also had a word:
“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.”
The details don't stop there as the two parties have planned even more for their program: DarkZero's art director Way “iamdeadbird” Peacock will be designing a whole set of skins and eventually a whole map that is modeled after DZ's Las Vegas hub.
Working Together for the Future of Esports
This isn't the first time DarkZero and Aim Lab have worked together. In 2020 the two of them hosted the DarkZero x Aim Lab Pro-Am tournament.
Aim Lab is named as the official partner of Rainbow Six Siege but also covers other games. It recently made several custom maps for the training of aspiring VALORANT professionals.
In any case, the initiative by Aim Lab and DarkZero is a welcome addition to the esports community. As esports is fairly new, there aren't a plethora of ways for people to get familiar with the esports world. Aim Lab aims to fill that gap. Other initiatives, such as Team SoloMid's recent University initiative, are being established to help people learn more about the industry as a whole.
