Berlin-based eSports startup DOJO Madness announced the launch of Shadow.LoL, a SaaS platform providing analytics and data visualizations for professional League of Legends teams that will dramatically improve how teams prepare for and analyze matches. Leading the team is Tim “Magic” Sevenhuysen, the world’s foremost League of Legends statistician.
Shadow.LoL was built in partnership with Team Liquid. Each feature and function is specifically designed to help pro teams win games, as well as help broadcasters tell more advanced data-driven narratives. Shadow.LoL offers powerful, efficient ways to track teams’ performances on stage and in scrims, monitor players’ champion pools, scout opponents’ tendencies, prepare strategies and drafts for upcoming matches, and dive deep into statistical analysis, all in one place.
“League of Legends is a highly complex game, and the fact that most teams are basing their analysis on simple spreadsheets and gut feelings is insane. We worked closely with Shadow during their beta to make sure their tools and data will enhance the work of our coaches, analysts, and players. We see Shadow as essential to our long-term success,” said Team Liquid Co-CEO, Steve Arhancet.
Tim “Magic” Sevenhuysen, the creator of OraclesElixir.com, is leading the team. Tim married his background in statistics and research with his love of eSports to become a leading voice in the creation and application of LoL analytics. In addition to providing data to broadcasters, journalists, and coaches around the world, both directly and through his website, Tim also served as Statistical Consultant to Fnatic during their 2015 summer EU LCS championship and run to the World Championship semifinals.
“DOJO Madness has an unmatched foundation in both League of Legends statistics experience and data science. Every feature in Shadow LOL is designed and refined to add real value for coaches and analysts,” said Shadow LoL Team Lead, Tim Sevenhuysen.
DOJO Madness was founded in December 2014 by Jens Hilgers, a twenty-year eSports veteran and Founder of ESL, Markus Fuhrmann, co-founder of food delivery unicorn, Delivery Hero, and Christian Gruber.
