One way to improve your performance in specific games is to get an esports coach gives you explains all the relevant strategies and tactics to you, practices with you, and improves your mindset. As esports becomes increasingly more popular and important for the industry, also coaching for games is on the rise.
Today, we welcome Patrick and Stephen podcast who are the managers of a coaching platform called Quackstage. The website features coaches for the three major titles in competitive gaming, namely League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and, of course, Dota 2. We’ll talk about Patrick and Stephen’s got the idea to start this project and what they aim to achieve with it.
As you might imagine, the market for coaching is fiercely contested by various platforms, so Quackstage tried to establish their own unique feature, which has, sadly, been ignored by many other providers. While their competitors don’t check their coaches’ abilities sufficiently, many self-proclaimed pro gamers and masterminds infiltrate such websites, argue the two project leaders. Therefore, they assess the capability of each coach themselves to ensure that their customers get only advisors who really know their business. This assessment involves also a background check to maintain that the person applying is not a fraud but a real pro gamer.
Not only does Quackstage supervise the quality of their coaches but so do those people who book coaching sessions on the website. Each esports coach has a rating given by current or former trainees who can give an even more reliable impression.
