    Question A study of motivation in SMITE

    Hello, I'm a game design student currently doing some research on SMITE.

    To get some player perspectives I wanted to share a short questionnaire for anyone interested:

    https://dorkemissary.typeform.com/to/AOUere

    Generally I'm just asking:
    - What do you as a player enjoy about SMITE?
    - What brought you into the game?
    - What motivates you to keep playing?

    Feel free to respond or ask questions in the comments as well.

    Thank you,
    Alex

    Will you post the results here when the survey ends? I'd very much like to know how it turns out.

    i did the survey good luck on your project
    I know what I have become... I am the inside of this world... I taste the gore, and I smell the crying... AND I WANT MORE! I want to bathe in your flesh, I want to savor your fear. I wanna live inside a castle built of your agony, AND I WANT TO CRUMBLE IT WITH AN AXE TO YOUR CAROTID ARTERY!

    Thank you for participating!
    There is currently no plans of posting all the results as such, as it is mostly just useful for my analysis of player motivation.
    Is there anything particular you are curious about?

    Well, everything, really. I'm curious what most people's motivations for playing the game are, and how it correlates to their age group.

    hah. Aren't we all?

    you'd probably have to ask google or facebook... or blizzard. They know and they certainly didn't rely on the accuracy from the answers on a survey. Chances are, though, that those companies certainly wont tell and the players themselves don't exactly understand or know their own motivations anyway. How about some lootboxes or some preorder bonuses? Half of you probably don't even know why that simple/low hanging shit works, much less the more complicated crap they might know about that might motivate various pleasure centers in your brain.

    They know you like a casino knows gamblers.
