Playgroup is working together with information visualization researchers from INESC-ID and the University of Lisbon, Portugal to create the ultimate data visualization tool for EDH players and they need your help! If you have the time please fill out this survey.

You can find their entire announcement post below:

Hello, all! We are a team of information visualization researchers from INESC-ID and the University of Lisbon, Portugal, who have partnered with the founders of Playgroup.gg to develop a dashboard to visualize data collected with the app. Playgroup.gg is a companion app to track Commander games, a format of the Magic: The Gathering card game. It collects game and deck statistics to allow participants to build their stats.

We are currently in the initial phase where we need to understand the needs of Commander players. What are useful insights? Which player knocked out the most enemies but still lost? Who did the most damage? Did that one player really take 10-minute turns? How does your performance compare to the rest of the playgroup? Are other players performing better with your commander than you are?

Let us know by filling out this questionnaire: https://forms.gle/7nar1yR9KwbUfowR8. Data will be processed anonymously and used to inform the designers of the needs of Commander players. If you want to keep track of this project or be part of the future focus group, we suggest you join the Playgroup.gg Discord and look for the “project arcane” channel.
