#KOFSurvey Final Analysis

Hello everyone, Reiki here!

After a few months of pooling through the data, Fatacon and I have finished our analysis of all the data collected during the #KOFSurvey. It took as a while. However, with the brand new changes just a few days away, we wanted to publish this asap. Special thanks to all the collaborators who helped with translating, sharing, and giving so much advice. A very special thanks to KPB|Zidiane who acted as the editor for the final product. Please note: This goes over the English survey data and uses figures from them. We may make a comparison analysis at a later date.

#KOFSurvey was a community initiative started on October 6th, 2016 and ended formally in January 2017. Users entered in information on their general experience with “The King of Fighters XIV” at that time as well as what they would need to watch, learn, and play more KOF. We successfully gathered more than 4,000 unique entries spanning over 7 different languages such as Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and even Turkish!

For the tl;dr – Our whole community has to step up and work together. We have so many communities spanning over the entire globe; we can accomplish so much when we’re all on the same page. My next goal is to make that collaborative.

Dream Cancel’s Featured Player of the Month – Ignant Rizzy

Hello and good day to all the readers out there,

For our player spotlight, we are highlighting a man whose excitement for KOF is pure, exciting, and infectious.

A content producer that I’m excited to shine some light on is Ignant Rizzy. Rizzy is a fighting game enthusiast that has been producing KOF content since the initial announcement. His reaction videos, for this author, were entertaining and refreshing. Since launch, he’s been posting videos of his adventures online playing KOF and improving. Ignant Rizzy has a talent to treat his viewers like you’re one of the gang. As a listener, Rizzy treats his viewers like good friends and speaks his mind genuinely about every topic.  There’s so much enjoyment to be had in watching someone have fun, and Rizzy has a LOT of fun playing KOF.

If you’d like to watch his reactions to the KOF trailers or if you’d like to see some of his latest play time, check the vid and the links below. Be sure to watch his vids, drop a like, follow him on Twitch, Youtube, and all the things. This is Reiki, and I’m out! Peace!

KOF Interest Survey 2016 Results

The KOF Interest Survey that Fatacon and Reiki-Kito created a month ago is now closed and complete!

Here is a quote from Reiki-Kito:

This data is being shared with the hope that responsible and eager members of the community can make a change. We also hope tournaments and events that cater to our community use this information to see further growth.

The survey is complete and we will do a follow up in mid 2017. The follow up will see how perceptions have changed.
The Spanish, Korean, and Japanese surveys will be up till December.

Here is a public copy: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1x-IMB2tk5VP1hAQ6y6BPdJ6v4bgSkf63oEhT0__xVUw/edit#gid=236739004
