In this session, the game director and data analyst for 'Rainbow Six Siege' explain how they managed to successfully keep their game in a healthy state by using data and shifting their design process to incorporate scientific methods. Key metrics are carefully engineered to fit the issues at hand and provide the most relevant information for each problem, whether it's been raised by data analysis or community feedback. Through concrete in-game examples, they will show the impact and results of this method.


This presentation highlights the benefits of a close collaboration between data analysts and game designers. With the abundance of data available, it is often hard to pinpoint the right information. Designers' knowledge of game mechanics and analysts' statistical background ensure that hypothesis can be safely tested and confirmed through data.

Intended Audience

While this presentation mainly targets game designers and analysts, anyone involved in the production process of live features would be interested in this presentation.
