Fans of Knives: Special Edition

It has been a long while since we’ve had a Fans Special Edition, but here we are. What, you might ask, is deserving of a Special Edition? Is it something neat from Blizzard? Is it a spectacular return of a beloved fan resource? Nope, it’s academics. The opportunity to learn about IRL from our amazing other lives doesn’t happen every day and Kermoondia is giving us the chance to do just that.

Hi everybody! I’m a data science student, and for my Honors capstone I am researching motivations and play styles in WoW relative to demographics, play style, and socialization. Have you ever wondered how a person’s IRL characteristics correlate with who and how they play in-game? That’s what we’re trying to find out! The results of this study are to be presented at a national conference as well as published in a peer-reviewed journal. We appreciate everyone’s participation, and we would especially appreciate trying to spread the survey as far as possible! We want as diverse a group of players as we can get. As of right now, we have over a thousand respondents from all over the world, and we hope to continue to grow that number! 18+ only.

So what do you say? Let’s help a fellow Azerothian out. Here’s the link:
