Faith and trust in the World of Warcraft : A study based on WoW player's perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien behandlar vilka interaktioner en användare behöver tillämpa för att den ska kunna finna eller skapa ett förtroende inom en guild i spelet World of Warcraft. Det övergripande syftet är att se om dessa interaktioner tillämpas på olika sätt beroende på vilken guild en användare är medlem i. Studien har främst utgått ifrån tre guilder och ett antal WoW-användares egna perspektiv, erfarenheter och tankar där undersökningarna har byggts på kvalitativa metoder. De kvalitativa metoderna inkluderade enkäter, scenario, observation och semi- strukturerade intervjuer. Analysen har till stor del utgått ifrån teorierna socialt kapital teorin och flow-teorin. Studien har även granskat hur WoW’s design och funktioner kan påverka en användares interaktioner både i och utanför spelet.
