Predictive Analysis 

eSports organizations through AI-powered technology can analyze player performance, predicting whether a player may win or lose a match. Data gathered using these tools can also be used to determine if players will stay with teams or leave soon. is one of such tools to help with analysis of this kind as it also does that for aspects such as automatic clips and event detection. This analysis helps organizations to know who to keep in the teams rather than playing guess games.

Data Analysis

With analysis appearing twice in the text, one may ask how this is the case. Well the points showing as two different things should be the first to notice. Also data analysis in eSports centers more data gathered from competitions, players and their respective teams. Because this comes in large amounts, there is the need to have tools to be able to help players and teams find insights and improve on their performance. Through the use of AI tools such as SenpAI which provides in-depth history of players, this can be used as a guidance to improve one’s game.

Data mining is used to  gain insights by finding hidden patterns and applying those patterns in new situations; predicting the turnout of events due to similar instances witnessed earlier. Some data mining tools that can be of assistance include MonkeyLearn, Knime and RapidMiner


Quite the number of aspects covered huh? And yet there is more to be explored because gaming will continue to experience changes through updates and other modifications that will make the gaming experience more realistic than ever.
