Hi, I thought it could be fun to ask what kind of player types people here are and share opinions between us how we go about the game and such. Happened to start some talk about player types in a private group chat where each of us saying what type we are, so thought it could be fun to expand it out into the forum itself so more people can join in if they are interested :-).
The Player Types:
Achievers: One who enjoys the competitive aspect and/or completionist aspect. Seeing their overall power increasing and getting acknowledgement for their progress can also be something an Achiever likes.
Explorers: The type of player who enjoys discovering new things like story, lore, team combination experimentation. Searching for new information and knowledge can be a Explorer trait too.
Socializers: Socializers are type of player that enjoys talking and interacting with other people in the game, rather than necessarily playing the game itself all that much. Wanting play and be a good leveled player in order to support and help the community/guild can be a part of a Socializer as well.
K!llers/PvPers: The PvP type person, who enjoy playing against other player, maybe also besting them and taunt and similar.
If wanting to distinguish between wanting to focus on PvP as in like focusing on gameplay PvP like the Arena and chat spars one can say PvPer, K!llers being the type that might diminish others’s fun for their own fun.
The player types are from Bartle’s Taxonomy, although while based on old MUDs as in old type of multiplayer text adventure, but should still apply to most multiplayer related mediums.
This should be one of the original posts of Bartle’s Taxonomy:
I personally are mainly an Explorer type of player, with Achiever and Socializer as sub traits.
The type of player who player for the story and lore, want to do decently and have fun helping people improve in terms of the game :-).
So yeah. hope you all enjoy and find the Player types discussing fun :-).
Edit: Also, Pipsqueak posted a link to a Player type question test, so thought I post in the main post so that it is easier to find :-).
