The League Championship Series (LCS) recently announced it has teamed up with esports analytics firm Mobalytics. This comes as part of an effort to help grow the LCS’ amateur esports ecosystem.
“I’m excited about the LCS’s commitment to the amateur scene. Working with so many passionate players, staff, teams, and organizations have been invigorating,” said Matt Nausha, the Head of Amateur and Scholastic Play for LCS North America. “As we move forward, we’ll continue to assess how we can better our processes and further the league’s development.”
As part of the agreement, Mobalytics has launched an updated version of its esports analytics website. This site was designed to help team scouts and fans track and follow amateur action through statistics, rankings, insights, and other services.
According to a press release, the partnership aims to support North American esports organizations’ high demand for League of Legends talent at the local level. The collaboration is expected to create new methods for LCS teams, tournament organizers, and sponsors to support the growth of regional amateur competitions.
