Manual & Console Game Data Processing

GYO has implemented automatic data collection for many titles, but we don't have data collection for all. Sometimes this is because we don't have it yet, sometimes the game publisher doesn't make it available.

However, the Combine is a unique opportunity that many want to participate in, and we want to support their titles. Therefore, we have implemented a manual process to try to support more games for players.

In the future, we will have desktop applications to automate this process for us as well. Stay tuned!

For now, here's how it works.

Step 1: Prep Your Stream

Scouts need to see the games you play. The easiest way to do this is to setup a YouTube/Twitch/ account and stream your Combine, then submit links to the recorded videos to us.

We recommend using to record highlight clips that you'd like to utilize for your combine analysis. This allows all of your clips, highlights, and gameplay to be stored in one organized location. You can download on your mobile phone, console, or PC desktop. Here are some helpful links to get started:

Whatever your method, make sure you setup and configure your account to record your stream permanently, not just stream. After the event, you will need to send us links to these matches.

Setup Auto Recording for: Twitch | YouTube

While we do not require you to use a webcam if you don't have one, we do recommend you record your audio for your team communication. This is often a factor scouts like to evaluate.

Note: If playing your matches in a LAN center or computer label, check your location's policies on streaming from their systems. Some may have dedicated machines that allow for streaming. Always check with your venue on their preferred setups.

Manual Titles

Step 2 (Home Play): Click START

For automated titles, we need to know which games you want us to include in your Combine. For manual titles, we need timestamps to match against your videos, to make sure you're reporting the correct content.

For both of these cases, you begin by going to your Combine Status page and clicking the START SESSION button to begin your Combine session. When you're done, return to this page and click END SESSION. This will help us identify which matches you want us to analyze.

Step 2 (Venues): Verify Your Attendance

Prove you were there. This is where the venues come in, as your venue operator will need to provide you a receipt for the play time you purchased, and verify your attendance.

By default, some centers may not provide receipts because many customers don't request them. Make sure you do! And, importantly, make sure there's a timestamp on the receipt. This verifies your presence in the center during the Combine, and allows us to authenticate your play.

Step 3: Know Where to Get Support

Our dedicated team of support techs and analysts will be available to assist you with any questions you may have. Keep in mind that we will be receiving, reviewing, and inputting your scores... manually. This process will be a grind, but we're happy to make it work.

Use the Support Chat widget in the bottom right hand corner of the screen to reach out anytime!

Step 4: Await the Processing

Once all your scores are manually tabulated, your results will be displayed on your Combine page and sent to our partner scouts, universities, and organizations.

And with a little luck and of course a lot of your skill, they'll reach out directly to you for next steps.
