Towards Deep Player Behavior Models in MMORPGs

Johannes Pfau, Jan David Smeddinck, Rainer Malaka
2018 The Annual Symposium on Computer-Human Interaction in Play Extended Abstracts - CHI PLAY '18  
We discuss their potential application in personalized challenges, autonomous game testing, human agent substitution, and online crime detection.  ...  Due to a steady increase in popularity, player demands for video game content are growing to an extent at which consistency and novelty in challenges are hard to attain.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We would like to thank all participants, as well as the private Lineage II server Imoriath for advertising the study.  ...

A Survey and Analysis of Techniques for Player Behavior Prediction in Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games

Brent Harrison, Stephen G. Ware, Matthew W. Fendt, David L. Roberts
2015 IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing  
We discuss the strengths and weaknesses that each technique provides in the MMORPG environment using desiderata that outline the traits an algorithm should posses in an MMORPG.  ...  We hope that this discussion as well as the desiderata help future research done in this area. We also discuss how each of these classes of techniques could be applied to the MMORPG genre.  ...  Discussion of other possible applications of player modeling in MMORPGs (such as for bot detection or cheat detection) is beyond the scope of this paper.  ...

Improved Mitigation of Cyber Threats in IIoT for Smart Cities: A New-Era Approach and Scheme

Semi Park, Kyungho Lee
2021 Sensors  
Experimental results using random forest show that our extracted features based on a game bot can achieve an average F1-score of 0.99903 using 10-fold validation.  ...  Consequently, data-driven security systems for analyzing massive amounts of data generated by smart cities have become essential.  ...  In analyzing a user's behavior, agents behaving abnormally are defined as bots. Bots and GFGs exhibit different patterns from normal users.  ...

User evaluation of virtual reporting agents

Neil Madden, Brian Logan
2010 Proceedings of the Intelligent Narrative Technologies III Workshop on - INT3 '10  
In this paper we present the results of a live evaluation study performed using an instance of the online role-playing game Neverwinter Nights augmented with witness-narrator agents to provide in-game  ...  Many persistent online environments such as Massively-Multiplayer Online Games (MMOGs), feature weblogs and/or live reportage of participants' activities in the world.  ...  These coverage test were entirely automatic, using scripted bots to generate events which match as closely as possible those generated in an environment with human players.  ...

Procedural Puzzle Generation: A Survey

Barbara De Kegel, Mads Haahr
2019 IEEE Transactions on Games  
Puzzles constitute an effective technique for improving gameplay by offering players interesting problems to solve, but the use of PCG for generating puzzles has been limited compared with its use for  ...  A particular challenge faced by such games is that the content and/or gameplay may become repetitive.  ...  In simulated-based evaluation, an AI agent attempts to solve the puzzle, implying that automatic solvers are sometimes used in puzzle generation.  ...

Modeling the efficacy of persuasive strategies for different gamer types in serious games for health

Rita Orji, Julita Vassileva, Regan L. Mandryk
2014 User modeling and user-adapted interaction  
We then explored the differences between the models and, based on the results, proposed two approaches for data-driven persuasive game design.  ...  Recent years have witnessed an increasing number of such games, which treat players as a monolithic group by adopting a one-size-fits-all design approach.  ...  Although attempts have been made towards personalizing persuasive games, game player models have largely been ignored as a dimension for distinguishing different types of users.  ...
