Hi all,

I am a graduate student at Teachers College, Columbia University, NY. I am conducting my pilot study on reasons and effects of customization in MMORPGs (especially in terms of enjoyment, engagement and motivation to play) with DDO, WoW, Lotro, and CoX. The study is approved by Institutional Review Board. This survey is conducted entirely for academic research purposes, and it is not affiliated with Turbine, NCSoft, or Blizzard. If you would like to fill out the survey please click the related link provided below. Also, there is more information and a consent form that you can read before you start to
fill out the survey.
