Player Dynamics is a particular mentality at Riot Games that has helped the company create amazing, player-focused multiplayer experiences. But how do you convince your team to adopt such a mindset, when you have so many other priorities?
In this 2020 GDC Summer session, Riot Games’ Weszt Hart breaks down how Player Dynamics works at Riot Games, and how “fair play” can be a useful measuring stick for how effective a Player Dynamics team is performing at a studio.
If you’re the kind of developer who wants to implement a fair play policy at your studio, you can watch Hart’s talk in the video above or for free on the GDC YouTube channel.
In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault and its accompanying YouTube channel offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent Game Developers Conference events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers.
Those who purchased All Access passes to recent events like GDC or VRDC already have full access to GDC Vault, and interested parties can apply for the individual subscription via a GDC Vault subscription page. Group subscriptions are also available: game-related schools and development studios who sign up for GDC Vault Studio Subscriptions can receive access for their entire office or company by contacting staff via the GDC Vault group subscription page.
