Here’s my two cents. There are 6 main types of players. Every single content update falls under one of these categories.
Explorers - people who love open ended games and exploring them and finding treasures and secrets and unique builds or structures. Always expecting or hoping that if they keep exploring they’ll find something truly amazing.
Builders - people who love to build, chisel, craft, and create everything and anything. Can spend hours just working on one build and find great satisfaction with their time spent. They don’t even need to leave their immediate surroundings because they’re having so much fun simply creating.
Hunters - similar to explorers with the exception that they’re specifically looking for creatures, animals, bosses, and dungeons. They want a challenge. They could spend every gaming minute shooting things and be perfectly happy and content doing so.
Social seeker - these players aren’t as concerned with normal aspects of the game as long as they can play with and communicate with other players. It’s the social aspect they desire and are happy as long as they feel like they’re part of a community and/or team.
Merchant - this type of player is drawn to games with a detailed merchant system. They love buying and selling. Making money in game gives them enough satisfaction that every other aspect of the game is simply a bonus. They log in just to check their shop. Whether it’s for selfish prestige or providing a service to the community, the merchant absolutely loves the shop scene.
Greifer - these players are drawn to games were they can cause grief and trouble for other players. They look for ways to cheat, scam, and kill other players. They get satisfaction seeing other players suffer at their hands. They feel superior when they successfully take something away from another.
An then of course there’s the type of player, who make up the majority, that play as multiple or all of those types.
The point of this post is to request content that will satisfy as many of these types as possible. Minus the greifer. Obviously releasing content for those 5 main types is difficult to do but if possible would literally make everyone happy.
