We are researchers at the Cognitive Science Lab at SFU conducting a large-scale study on the development of expertise in SC2. This is done by taking replay files and measuring key variables such as Perception Action Cycles
for a more detailed overview of our research objectives. Please also view our interview on the Daily Planet
Thanks to the online community, we received over 4400 replay files from players during our first data collection period. During this first collection period, we asked players to submit a single replay file along with his or her respective in-game ranking. Here
are some interesting findings from the data so far!
For the data collection period on now, we are aiming for a more accurate picture of skill development by measuring skill development at a more individual level. To achieve this we are looking for players who have kept a large collection of personal replay files (300 or more).
We need your help in collecting these replays. Please spread the word and encourage players to submit replay files to http://skillcraft.ca/
