In today’s live stream I started to analyse the behaviour of BossConstructor players based on the metric tracking I implemented in one of the latest patches. Since I have only data for four days so far there is not a lot I can conclude yet, but there are still some interesting statistics on what type of explorations players choose to play.
While about half of the players play on the normal galaxy size, some players seem to enjoy the huge galaxies.
Currently the speed based Alpha ship seems to be most popular with about 250 games started.
This descriptive analysis is only the start of what I intend to do using the data I have collected but it is already very insightful to me. Apparently the game is very challenging to many players and maybe I will need to decrease the difficulty level a bit.
As I collect more and more data, both the quality of these analyses and the the number of questions I can answer using it will increase. I will keep you up to date!
