SOE Gives 60TB of EQ2 Data to Science

SOE Gives 60TB of EQ2 Data to Science - EverQuest II - MMORPG.com

SOE has announced they will be sharing more than 60 Terabytes server logs and data from EverQuest II academic researchers to study human interactions in games. SOE also assures us that our personal information has been removed from this data package.

We're providing our data for science! In a recent collaboration, SOE shared over 60TB of server logs from EverQuest II and additional data collected from a voluntary player survey with a team of academic researchers who hope to use the data to study human interactions through the gaming environment, connections between players and how their online networks are built and used, and more.

The server logs were scrubbed of all PII (Personally Identifiable Information) prior to being provided to the researchers, including chat log content. The team received data such as the volume, frequency and demographics of in-game chatters, but none of this information was connected to the real names or other PII of any players.
