Markus Viljanen, Antti Airola, Anne-Maarit Majanoja, Jukka Heikkonen, Tapio Pahikkala
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Statistical tools based on the MCF allow game developers to determine whether a given change improves a game, or whether a game is yet good enough for public release.  ...  Player retention and monetization in particular have become central business statistics in free-to-play game development. Many metrics have been used for this purpose.  ...  Note that the censoring time often varies by player; a method that handles this is able to pool the data from users arriving on different days.  ...
