Data from Shanghai Jiao-Tong University Advance Knowledge in Information Technology (The evaluation of massive multiplayer online role-playing games based on expanded dependency graph)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- Fresh data on Information Technology are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Shanghai, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Evaluating massive multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) before purchasing and operating them is of paramount importance to earn high profits. Dependency graph (DG) is fit for modeling and analysis of the MMORPG as it is relatively easy to understand and conductive to the synthesis between different networks."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Shanghai Jiao-Tong University, "However, the conventional DG cannot describe how or to what degree events depend on each other. Therefore, we propose an expanded dependency graph (EDG), where logic operations are introduced to describe how events depend on each other, and colored tokens are adopted to represent to what degree events depend on each other. Based on EDG, MMORPG can be evaluated in a quantitative manner using three measure indexes: complexity, sociality, and game balance. Furthermore, the measure chart is also adopted to standardize the three measure indexes and deal with the multi-criteria decision problem."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The proposed method is tested with the real word data and experimental results indicate that our method shows competitive performance over other methods."
