Session Name:

Esports Summit: Skill Progression, Visual Attention, and Efficiently Getting Good at Esports


While repeatedly playing competitive games will make you better at it, there are many ways to make gaming skills develop more efficiently. These ways come from understanding how skills are developed, such as mechanical and cognitive skills. A central and often overlooked aspect concerns awareness and attention, to see what is happening and what to do. Using a novel approach to trainers and metrics, by being aware how and where to look at the game, helps players maximize their performance.nDr. Anders Frank and Thomas Papa explain in their talk how to consider skill development and how product offerings can be created to both esports pros and a large audience thirsty of stepping up their game. Drawing from examples from theorists, research, studies and ongoing MOBA esports training development they will share their vision to make players game more efficient.
