Do the bartle test

http://www.gamerdna.com/rails/quizzes/take/bartle-test-of-gamer-psychology

And find out what you are.

 

 

Personally i think the game suits anything thats high on Exploration or killing for a very very long time,  THe sociallising part totally depends on your server/guild, i am very happy with mine. But i foresee that many of the archeivers will sooner then later leave the game behind only to return at the next Expansionpack.

 

I am an ESKA 80% 53% 53% 13%  and thats why i adore this game, it fits my playing style really really well.

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

That trivia makes me look more balanced that I probably am. I'm also entirely focused in GW2 in the activity I"m not supposed to be, ie PvP.

67% achiever, 60% explorer, 60% social, 13% killer.

 

What does that mean?

Also: Some of the questions needed a "neither" answer for me.

E-87% S-47% K-33% A-33% according to that strange test that goes way over 100%

But yeah, I love GW2 and the answer is "in the E"

The game can appeal to any type equally - because the test can not accurately account for actual in game personal experience which is not strongly tied to a simple Bartle test.

our likes and dislikes are far beyond the scope of the test.

Explorer 80%, socializer 73% Achiver 23% killer 20%...

But yes, the achivers are the ones hardest hit by GW2, while there are some epic hard to get items like legendary weapons there arent that many compared to many other MMOs.

I'm mainly explorer in every MMO, but I can't stand GW2, so this theory not working in my case. ;)

What a shitty little test. Apparently I'm K (87%) A (53%) S (33%) E (27%) which is completely wrong. In reality I'm a balanced ESKA. You can be ESKA and a PvPer you know. (oh, and I didn't like GW2)

Your gamerDNA is:

EXPLORER

Result Signature

The Explorer motto:"No stone unturned!"

Description:

It's not so much the wandering around and poking about, but that euphoric eureka moment the Explorer strives for. The joys of discovery do not necessarily involve geography, real or virtual. They may derive from the mental road less traveled, the uncovering of esoteric or hidden knowledge and it's creative application. Explorers make great theory crafters. The most infinitesimal bit of newness can deliver the most delicious zing to an Explorer.

Secondary influences
  • Explorer Killers enjoy seeing the world, meeting interesting people...and killing them. EKs love all discovery, but finding an edge over the competition is best. Always seeking new opportunity, an EK likely knows the ten best places to find certain types of opponents, as well as ten different ways for taking them down.
  • Explorer Achievers have been there, done that and have the t-shirt...in fact they have a plethora of t-shirts, badges, trophies and other rewards. EAs are the completionists of the gamer world. They like to find new places, quests, easter eggs, unlocks, maps etc. and check them off as have, visited or beaten. Like real world travelers, EAs enjoy collecting memorabilia that helps them relive their experiences later.
  • Explorer Socializers are the glue of the online world. Not only do they like to delve in to find all the cool stuff, but they also enjoy sharing that knowledge with others. Explorer socializers power the wikis, maps, forums and theory craft sites of the gamer world.
 
I was never an achiever. I may be a 40/100 killer, but generally I don't play MMORPGs for PvP. If I wanted competition I'd play Street Fighter, or DotA.

MMORPGs are no longer about the mass multi-user anymore *sadly*

10/03/12 9:41:00 AM#15

E 73%, S 53%, K 40%, A 33%

Does this mean GW2 is the perfect match for my MMO needs..? :p

Exploration is the primary reason why I'm playing games, MMORPG in particular, however, GW2 totally fails in this matter. The maps were too small, most of the spots were already marked on map, I found this game to be first and foremost designed for casual players mostly focused on killing and achieving and very little on exploring and socializing.

REALITY CHECK

The bartle test isn't a valid test, i.e. it does not (necessarily) measure what it purports to be measuring.

 

The FIRST question on it is basically "When a new MMO opens up, do you rush to a new area eager to explore it and learn the story, or do you rush to a new area eager to acquire powerful gear?"  The test thinks it is testing you to see if you are an explorer or an achiever, but it just as well is testing whether you consider the story in MMOs to be worth learning in the first place.

 

And yes, it is partly true that you might have a tendency to achievement over exploring just because you don't think the story is worth your attention. But it's also true that the story might just be plain crappy, as it is in many MMOs as evaluated by many players, so people answer "gear" over "explore" because they know/believe there is nothing worth exploring to begin with... not because they actually prefer to acquire gear over exploring worthwhile places/stories.

The test really has little to do with this.

i am  87%A 80%K 20somethingE and like 7S - and I always roll with my RL friends and love MMORPGs.

like I said there is a LOT more to us humans than this test can account for.

I think bartle scores do very poorly when used as a factor to figure out if a specific person will like a certain game - it doesn't work.

Did you find most of the hidden places in all maps already ? They are not marked at all.
