Bayes Esports and Riot Games will deliver competitive esports data to professional League of Legends (LoL) Esports teams, Riot Games’ partners and the wider esports community via a new centralised data hub.
The LoL Esports Data Portal (LDP) will provide access to a wide variety of data to power teams, partners and fan experiences. Bayes Esports and Riot Games strongly believe their data collaboration will also enable long-term growth for sector stakeholders.
“We are always looking for opportunities to develop innovations that are beneficial to the entire esports industry,” said Martin Dachselt, CEO and Managing Director of Bayes Esports.
“Being able to work with Riot Games has given us a great opportunity to tailor technologies to fit the needs of teams, players, and individuals. We believe that the LDP will be the next of many steps to continue to professionalise the esports industry.”
The unique portal gives more than 150 teams and partners access to LoL data via UI and API integrations.
“We are excited to be laying the foundation and starting to share our vision for the future of esports data,” said John Knauss, Lead of Competitive Data Programs for Esports at Riot Games.
“From the beginning, our mission has been to enable our professional teams, partners, and community to revolutionise esport. Working with Bayes to develop the underlying tech to bring this vision to life has been a fantastic opportunity, and we are looking forward to continuing to push and differentiate esports in the space.”
The data will allow teams to improve their pre-match preparations and post-match analysis, thereby powering up the overall level of play across all LoL events.
Chris DeAppolonio, Chief Innovation Officer at Evil Geniuses, said: “The Lolesports Data Portal has been a fantastic resource for Evil Geniuses that has helped propel our methodology in data and analytics to new heights.
“With the LDP, we have direct access to key data points from games that have saved our team countless hours of number crunching and research, allowing us to instead put all of our effort in breaking down these insights and using it to inform our strategy and decision-making in future matches.”
Apostol Tegko, Data Analyst for FNATIC, concluded: “The LDP has provided us with a great starting point from which we’re building on top of in order to improve our teams’ performance and stay ahead of the curve. It’s an exemplary approach throughout esports.”
