Hi all!

My name is Janne Parkkila and I am a researcher at Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland. I am currently researching interactions between multiple games and would love if some of you guys would take 5 minutes of your time to answer to the survey.

If you wish, you can also participate in a chocolate raffle by leaving your email at the end of the questionnaire.

The survey can be found from:

Sincerely Yours,

Replied. A well-thought out survey, I thought. The questions were designed to actually gather thoughtful and useful information. No "Rank these things that I know about, and assume you also know about, and gave you the option of preferring ketchup or mustard on them."

Most of it was non-applicable because CCP failed to integrate the games more.

I was also ready to lambaste you for being yet another kid that thinks EVE would make cool home work but that was a decent little survey.

CCP - Building ant hills and magnifying glasses for fat kids

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

I have completed this survey, although not sure how useful my data will be, as I have never played Dust, will never play Dust. and am in fact disgusted by the very existence of Dust (not only the game, but actual Dust as well, makes my skin itch).

The Pro Synergy Pilot is not just a fighting man, he is a salvage expert. If it is lost, in the blackness of space, he will find it. If it has been destroyed, he will loot and salvage it. If it is in his way, he will move it. If he is lucky he will be podded 20 jumps from home, for this is the closest he come to being hero.
