Video: ‘Play Nice: The Science of Player Behavior’ Talk

Justin Reich from the EdTech Blog has posted a video of the "Play Nice: The Science of Player Behavior" talk given last month by Riots Games' Jeffrey Lin (lead designer of social systems) and Carl "Status" Kwoh (the producer for the player behavior team) at Berkman Center for Internet & Society (at Harvard). The talk revolves around Riot Games' system for making players in its popular game League of Legends play nice with each other and features an interesting discussion afterwards with those who attended the talk.

Kwoh and Lin outline a number of different methods to achieve player harmony over the past year, with an emphasis on the game's Tribunal, a player-run judicial system.
