MMORPG Games

Here you can see the example of the game analysis. Additionally we will see the reports on what you should pay attention when analyzing a game of the MMO genre.

User level is the main indicator of the user's progress in the game. The player constantly raises his level, improves and achieves new skills and currency. Therefore, we should look at the all in-game economy reports in the context of levels.

First of all, it is worth analyzing the in-game currency, the dynamics of its spendings and savings. Let’s go to the Virtual goods & purchase report. We can see the most popular products in terms of levels and time.

It is also important to know what the players’ shopping basket consists of and how it changes depending on the level. We will go to the Purchases structure report.

Let's see how the demand for certain products varies at the given levels or in time:

Let’s analyze which products’ prices we can change. Let's move on to the ABC/XYZ-analysis for our virtual goods, it allows us to identify categories of goods where we can easily change the price (sub-segments BY, CY, BZ, CZ).

The report shows that the goods bomb, picker, XBomb are bringing to the game the most money and they have the most stable demand, it is better not to experiment with them. On the other hand, you can experiment with pricing and stocks on products from the CZ segment.

In addition to analyzing data, in the main reports, you can integrate custom events to track and analyze specific user actions. You can use custom events to get an insight into how users use the application, which quests they accept, how often they interact with each other, which offers they open, and so on. You can also analyze custom event data in the Custom event report. You can build a funnel and analyze conversion rates at each stage, for example, you send an event every time a user enters an in-game shop, clicks on an item, buys an item. Based on these events, you can build a funnel and check the conversion rate at each stage in the Conversion funnel report. Below you can find examples of events that may be useful to you.
