I posted this originally here: http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/7415154504. A few people replied so I wanted to see if I could gauge the interest of mapmakers from my favorite place for SC2 mapmaking.
Hello, I wanted to know if anyone has requested any form of analytics from Blizzard for mapmakers.
Right now I feel like I have no connection to the people who play my mods outside of social media and forums. Also, because my mods are not played as much as the more popular ones, it is harder for me to get feedback and know about the types of people that play my games. Would it be possible for Blizzard to implement analytics that show data about people who are playing our games?
Examples of what I would like to know... -How someone got to my game -Click-thru rates -Bounce rate on Arcade info page -Keywords used in the search of Arcade to find my game -Amount of time played -Time of day the map was played -Country of players -Language of players
I feel like this will allow me to create optimized Arcade pages and make a better mod. Obviously, this is a way lower priority than creating an awesome game, but, if the data is already in place, I wanted to know if it could be released. Are any other mapmakers interested in seeing this type of data?
