The Psychological aspects of champion role choice in MOBA games

Atay, Aydın
Multiplayer features of video games increased lately due to increasing quantity of social gamers. Playing together for a common goal and having different roles in a team play is one of the favorite multiplayer properties. In MOBA games, players can take part in various roles rather than simply fighting with the enemies. This thesis investigated the probable effects of player personality to the role selection in this type of games. For this work, fairly experienced MOBA players are subjected to personality measures and exploratory tests. Whether character selections of participants are affected or not is determined via questionnaires. Results showed that there are several significant associations between personality and roles.
