“Social Elements in Games”

Community management is a crucial aspect of any modern videogame
release and its relation to game design and development is complex and
interesting in many ways. Seraphina Brennan will share her insights and
experience working on titles such as The Lord of the Rings Online and
Trion World’s ArcheAge and discuss how game design impacts community
management – especially when players can scam/steal from others, politic
their way to power, and manipulate social constructs to receive tangible
in-game benefits.
