Wizards of the Coast has released a new survey. It is a fairly comprehensive survey of player interests.
I’d encourage people to complete this survey, so that they get an accurate response from real players.
Some of the questions are very interesting… I’ll let you come to your own conclusions as to what they are testing here:
- Being a powerful hero that defeats villains and monsters.
- Leveling up my character as quickly as possible.
- Campaigns with elaborate narratives and plot.
- Being disruptive and contrarian to make things more interesting.
- Learning about the different cultures/customs/locales in the campaign world setting.
- Creating unique characters that express my individuality.
Towards the end, there is a question regarding “would you recommend D&D to others”. Afterwards is an opportunity to enter free text for “why did you answer this way”. I’d encourage others to submit how they feel as well (whichever way you feel, positive or negative).
