ABSTRAKT

Under de senaste åren har det släppts flera onlinespel inom genren MMORPG och deras popularitet har ökat. Vid vår litteraturstudie framgick det att tidigare forskning visar på att spelare av MMORPG spel utvecklar olika kompetenselement genom sitt spelande men tar inte upp spelares uppfattning kring detta. Därför har vi undersökt spelares uppfattning kring sin egen kompetensutveckling i ett MMORPG spel samt vilka spelmoment som kan bidra till detta. Vi utförde en netnografisk studie med enkät, intervjuer och deltagande observation i World of Warcraft. Vår slutsats är att spelare uppfattar en utveckling av sexton olika kompetenselement.

ABSTRACT

In recent years several online games in the genre of MMORPG have been released and their popularity has increased. Our literature review revealed that previous research shows that players of MMORPG games develop different skill elements through their game play but does not address the player’s view on this. Therefore, we examined the players’ perception of their skill development in a MMORPG game and the game elements that can contribute to this. We performed a netnographic study with questionnaire, interviews and participatory observations in World of Warcraft. Our conclusion is that the players perceive a development of sixteen different skill elements.
