Diablo 3 Theorycrafting Study

  • #1
    The Cultural Research in Technology Group in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University is researching the role that theorycrafting plays in shaping online gaming experiences. We would like to hear from players of online games, especially MMOGs like World of Warcraft and Diablo 3, who have participated in theorycrafting activities.

    We are interested in many theorycrafting activities, including the following.
    • Do you browse forums or websites for information on your character?
    • Do you use spreadsheets or simulators to calculate character damage or other values?
    • Have you built any spreadsheets or other tools to assist in your theorycrafting?
    • Do you use any game addons to help maximize or theorycraft about your character?
    We want to hear your stories about theorycrafting and how it is has impacted your gameplay experiences, so please consider participating in our study. Your participation may involve an up to 2 hour interview conducted through Skype or Google+ Hangouts. As part of this interview, you may be asked to share your screen (thru Skype or Google+) to show us the types of tools or resources that you use while theorycrafting and how you use them.

    For more information on this study and details on how to participate, please read the study information sheet at the following URL.


    Thank you for your time and we look forward to your participation!
