Researchers discover friends make you play better online

first_imgFriendships are difficult to quantify. But sports analysts often comment on the “team dynamic” or “team chemistry” as an important factor in order for a group to succeed and win.Researchers at the Stevens Institute of Technology and University of Colorado may have the evidence to back up the round table claims. Winter Mason and Aaron Clauset studied the behavior of over 100 Halo: Reach players that participated in a survey, studying 2,445,617 games by accessing player’s individual game and user summaries through Halo’s Stats API available online.The premise was to see if friends playing the competitive first person shooter online would be able to better anticipate and coordinate the team’s needs over a group of strangers. They took note of both individual and team performance, and compared who they played with: friends in real life, friends met online, and complete strangers.The researchers found that individual and team player performance increased by the variable called friendship, and that there was a stronger effect amongst teammates who were offline friends than those that formed bonds via online only. Mason and Clauset even found that when friends were separated on to opposing teams through online matchmaking, there was a higher amount of betrayal rates—something I’m sure all of us have either been a victim of or done ourselves.The friendship factor, however, isn’t that surprising. Anyone who has played a first person shooter online knows any form of communication a team will have can decend into racist, misogynistic, and/or homophobic slurs. It’s rare to find that perfect matchup of guys (and maybe girls) who will actually say, “Hey, heads up, there’s a guy sniping in the tower on this end of the map.”via Technology Reviewlast_img read more
