Corsair Expands Gamer Sensei Game Coaching Service

Gamer Sensei, the premier esports coaching platform, today announced the launch of the new Team Coaching service to expand its acclaimed esports training and curriculum for aspiring pros and seasoned veterans alike, alongside several key enhancements to the Gamer Sensei website. Designed in collaboration with the world-renowned coaches that form Gamer Sensei's leading talent, Team Coaching was created in direct response to user feedback to address the needs of a rapidly growing amateur esports scene.

Team Coaching has arisen out of specific requests for coaches to train and work directly with fully-rostered teams. Team Coaching focuses on the complex strategies needed to succeed in group settings vs. playing alone, with its own curriculum that addresses the different dynamics that emerge in tournaments and similar environments. As with all its products, Gamer Sensei Team Coaching coursework was built with all players in mind. Whether your team wants to conquer pubs, triumph at a local tournament, start the journey to becoming Pros, or polish their skills to the finest shine, Team Coaching lets you level up together.
Alongside Team Coaching, the Gamer Sensei site and its core training have also been upgraded. Booking a coach has never been easier thanks to a streamlined scheduling process and video conferencing that's now directly built-in to the Gamer Sensei website, while the price of skills assessment has dropped to a new low flat rate. To ensure the highest quality of services, Gamer Sensei now also offers career development for new coaches, from onboarding and beyond - assisting them in their own personal journeys and building an unparalleled community of esports educators.

Oh. Wow. They even have a "30-minute skill assessment session", e.g. I have to pay $20 so that someone can tell me personally that I suck at Dota2.
Not a single mention of any famous or accomplished players being on their coaching team, plus anyone can apply for a coaching position (supposedly after vetting, but just like with job interviews - you can wing it just the same).

Humans are very disappointing creatures, blinded by short term greed, so you are probably correct.

I think it's just that everyone believes they are pro-material but feel they need just that one more skillset to get sponsored. The fact that this is a Corsair-sponsored service means it will inherently be overpriced.

yeah short term greed and short term ego are interchangeable terms in my book. lol

it's kind of sad to see Corsair giving false hope like this.

Some teams are already running "bootcamps", summer e-Sports camps etc., nothing really new here. The idea is ok.
The thing is, most people that attend this coaching service are no different than people taking guitar or painting lessons (even prices for 1 on 1 sessions are comparable). 99% of them won't become the next Rapha or Clawz, but realistically 99.9% of arts and crafts school attendees won't become the next Bach or Rembrandt either (or even pursue a career as an artist, for that matter).
My beef with this "sensei" service is mismarketing and misrepresentation.

they would be better off going to community college, getting something in demand like welding or electrician or plumber. Welders in Austin, TX right now are in desperate demand and paying 80-90k a year. very cheap to go to community college for welding, electrician, etc.

anyone that wants to change their stars in America doesn't need to hope to make it big in gaming or art, take out some student loans (again community college is much much cheaper than regular university), study plumbing, electrician, welding, or something else that is very much in demand) within 2-3 years you will be making 60k+ as long as you are willing to move around for work.

semi-truck drivers also make 50-60k and they train you for free no school needed. my cousin is younger than me, and drives a semi-truck that hauls recycled plastics, he makes 90k a year doing it, he could have made over 100k if he chose to haul oil instead, but he didn't want to move country for the extra 10k.

there is literally nothing stopping anyone from changing their stars with a new path in life. but if kids want to keep wasting their time thinking they will be next big shot gamer esports team... then they can do so. its not smart or logical though. /shrug

lynx29hey would be better off going to community college, getting something in demand like welding or electrician or plumber.
I wholeheartedly understand, but what society needs is usually not what generic off-the-street people want.
Kids want to be musicians, lawyers, pirates, photographers etc. Some can even develop the skill and roll with it, some may use acquired skills as a weekend hustle, but the majority end up with a degree in arts or social studies and end up working in a supermarket or call center.
Adults are no different. I know quite a few people of my age and older who in their spare time instead of doing something useful decided to pursue their new dreams of becoming "social media influencers", or "full-time crypto-investors". I'm not talking youngsters, I'm talking middle age fully-grown and mostly competent f@#$ adults! :D :D :D
At least eSports can get you in college, unlike YT and hand-drawn manga :roll:

I have a relative who went to community college to become an electrician at age 19. he is now around age 24 or so, making 70k a year cause his job is so in-demand. no debt.

wish I could rewind the wheel of time for myself and do the same path he did. no one ever told me those paths existed, they just said go to uni like everyone else. should have never listened to that pyramid scheme.
