The Cog Lab Will Enhance Esports Players’ Cognitive Preparation and Promote Mental Wellness
FRISCO, Texas — May 16, 2019 — Complexity Gaming, one of North America’s most elite and longest standing esports organizations, today announced the launch of its proprietary Cog Lab through its partnership with Mamba Sports Academy and HyperX. Located within Complexity’s highly anticipated new headquarters, the GameStop Performance Center (GSPC), the Cog Lab will focus on the development, training, and improvement of core cognitive functions for esports athletes.
“At Complexity Gaming, we’re taking a holistic approach to cognitive health in order to help our esports athletes unlock and attain peak in-game performance,” said Kyle Bautista, Chief Operations Officer and General Manager at Complexity Gaming. “We are working hand-in-hand with Mamba Sports Academy and HyperX to continually develop an exclusive program for our players and to give them an unprecedented training experience.”
The Cog Lab will feature six interactive stations designed to facilitate team and private training sessions under changing environments. The esports-specific protocols are designed to push users to the limits of their performance around cognitive speed, accuracy, and focus under loads and stressors. Training sessions are tracked, analyzed, and reviewed by a cognitive scientist to update players on their improvement throughout the training process.
“In esports, every millisecond counts so it’s important for teams to provide cognitive training,” said Jason Sada, CEO of Mamba Sports Venture Lab. “Our training has been validated by the world’s most elite athletes across Formula 1, MLB, NFL, and NBA, and esports is a perfect application for our programs. Now, this proprietary training software and equipment will be used with Complexity athletes to boost their performance.”
In addition to the advanced cognitive training equipment provided by Mamba Sports Academy, Complexity players will use award-winning HyperX Cloud Alpha headsets while practicing gaming protocols. During training, audio loads are added to customize the difficulty of the reaction time and accuracy modes of the app. The Cloud Alpha’s sound distinction with its dual chambers will ensure that Complexity team athletes are in the best environment to achieve their full potential.
“We are thrilled to be a sponsor of the GameStop Performance Center where gaming fans will have hands on experience with HyperX products that match their gaming lifestyle,” said Wendy Lecot, head of HyperX Strategic Alliances. “Experiencing great audio at the state-of-the-art Cog Lab in conjunction with the Mamba Sports Academy Cog Lab helps bring a whole new level of peak performance experience to esports athletes.”
Along with best-in-class equipment, the Cog Lab will be outfitted with rubber flooring for yoga and other recovery activities. The core programming and protocols within the Cog Lab include cognitive performance assessments, private training sessions, team-based training and competition sessions, and personalized data reports.
