I will admit that I find myself thinking far too much about my favourite wargame, Flames of War. I love seeing people’s views, on Facebook, Instagram, and at events. This got me thinking; Do we hear from a wide cross-section of the hobby or just more ‘committed’ players who do the tournie circuit? Are some of the issues people talk about on the FB pages that bad, or do we just not hear from those who think everything is fine? Is what a FOW veteran thinks about the game the same as a newbie?
For a while I had been thinking that it might be interesting to get some actual hard stats/evidence of the views of the community on the game hence I started work on the ‘FOW – Player Survey 2022’. Its aim is to allow some analysis of players, their gaming habits, their view of the game and also their thoughts on some aspects of V4.
Firstly general interest for us, our readers and the community. Let’s learn some more about our community and how they feel. Secondly, there are some questions there of interest to Breakthrough Assault in terms of preferred content which will help inform us what our readers would like to see. Finally to help inform BF with real evidence and in a constructive manner about how the game is played and perceived.
I will stress that BF has not requested this survey, it is not in partnership with them. That said they will receive the overall results and my hope is that it may be useful to guide some future developments of the game we love.
Let’s Do it!
The Survey can be found here:
All questions are multiple-choice and the survey should take no more than 5-10 mins.
Thanks for taking part. I will leave the survey open for a month and then do some write-ups with some analysis and a breakdown of the results.
