As Massively Multiplayer Online Games gain popularity, there has been a concomitant increase in size and complexity, both technically and in terms of player usage. To understand the structures and dynamics of these complex environments, game designers need detailed visualisations that expose usage patterns from gameplay data. This paper presents a quest data model devised to provide database support for evaluation tasks performed by designers of online role playing games.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
