Riot Games’ Valorant Champions Tour has partnered with Aim Labs to launch the first-ever Aim Lab Combine. To celebrate the Combine’s launch, Aim Lab will be giving away prizes to players who earn the highest scores. Top overall performers who participate from April 29 through May 5 will receive prizes.
Aim Lab players can generate personal statistics on their core abilities through a series of six specialized tasks. These tasks are meant to test VALORANT fundamentals such as entering, headshot accuracy, microflexing, tracking and trigger control. This data will then allow players to compare their stats to friends and pros via sharable player cards featuring an overall Aim Lab score.
The scores on these player cards will highlight accuracy, speed, reaction time and tracking scores. While the Aim Lab Combine is open to the public, players need to link their Riot Games accounts to access the full suite of features and prizes for VALORANT. Registered players will appear on leaderboards that post top scores from each individual task and top cumulative scores.
Aim Labs and the Valorant Champions Tour
The 2021 VCT Stage 2 Challengers in North America begins on Thursday, April 29 with the Challengers Playoffs. The Challengers Playoffs is a top eight showdown to determine the two teams to represent North America at the Masters offline event in Reykjavik, Iceland. Aim Lab’s goal in VALORANT is to have players compare their scores to different pros who are also competing to be the best in the world.
“When we began our partnership with Aim Lab, one of our long-term goals was to help facilitate the development of VALORANT talent in North America,” said Matthew Archambault, Riot Games Head of Partnerships – NA & OCE. “This combine is a major step toward meeting that goal.”
A team of neuroscientists founded Aim Lab to form the ultimate training platform for gamers of all levels. Over 12 million players around the globe play Aim Lab with those numbers growing every day. Aim Lab can be downloaded for free on Steam and VALORANT can be downloaded at Riot Games’ dedicated website.
