Mobalytics is a platform that promises to deliver visual analytics to competitive gamers so that they can find out their weaknesses and adjust accordingly.
Believe it or not, competitive gaming is an industry that is consistently evolving and surpassing all expectation it has. Gamers are constantly trying to up their game and become faster and stronger. Just to put things into perspective, the e-Sports industry is expected to hit almost half a billion dollars in 2016.
Recently, the company launched a beta of its project out of TechCrunch Disrupt SF‘s Startup Battlefield.
Mobalytics is targeting League of Legends, a hugely popular MOBA (Multiple Online Battle Arena) to conduct their initial experiment to optimize their analytics engine. Usually when an athlete needs to level up their skills, they require coaching. For LoL players, that is only available to top competitive gamers. Mobalytics is hoping to change all that by providing the data that gamers need via visual analysis in order to gain fast insights both before and after matches.
The platform’s main feature is their Gamer Performance Index or GPI. The visual map cues users into distinct areas of their gaming skills that vary with the game title. For example, with a game such as League of Legends, those areas would be fighting, farming, vision, aggression, survivability, teamplay, consistency and versatility.
The GPI also helps you quickly identify your individual strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of competitors. From a visual perspective, the developers are planning to implement a series of icons and badges that players can easily call when checking on the skills of their competitor before a match.
Mobalytics is aiming their service primarily toward gamers looking to add to their skills and break into the upper levels of competitive gaming. According to Bogdan Su, Co-founder, the company is not interested in focusing on the top tier gamers as at that level, the differences in gameplay are a lot more difficult to separate.
The company also has plans to expand to other big eSports titles such as Overwatch, DOTA 2 and Counter Strike. Needless to say, with almost 13,000 sign-ups for the beta, it’s clear the interest is there.
