Amazon has been working hard to become a strong competitor in the gaming industry, as Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently partnered with Riot Games to join the esports community. Things look bright and optimistic for Prime Gaming. But not long ago, in March, Amazon shut down the GameOn platform after only two years of operation.
Riot Games and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have announced a new partnership to bring Riot eSports content, including mobile exclusive title League of Legends: Wild Rift.
AWS provides Riot with many cloud services, including artificial intelligence. Going forward, AWS will enhance Riot’s esports broadcasts for Wild Rift Esports, League of Legend Esports, and Valorant Champions Tour.
The aim is to provide experience and in-depth statistics, such as those found in broadcasts for major sports leagues. Key data will be displayed before, during and after the broadcast, for the purpose of educating and informing fans.
AWS Analytics to assist with ratings using AWS analytics for review, collected data will be used to generate the AWS Global Strength Rankings, near real-time rankings of the top professional teams in each league.
Riot and AWS may integrate into the development of the Power Rating System through a hackathon to be held this fall. The companies will jointly develop and build the initial platform, then provide participants with the data and AWS capabilities to complete the project.
