Essay:Archon Arcana Survey Results June 2021
In June of 2021, in an effort to make sure Archon Arcana was adequately serving the KeyForge Community, we conducted a survey. Below are the results and conclusions.
How often do you visit Archon Arcana?
Of the 58 responses received to the survey, 40 responders said they used Archon Arcana often or very often.
What are the main reasons you use Archon Arcana?
Respondents were able to answer this in a free form manner, and the responses were then categorized to align to the features of the site. Cards (36) and Rules (24) were the most commonly mentioned features.
How satisfied are you with the following features or sections of Archon Arcana?:
53 of the participants said that they were satisfied or very satisfied with the Card Pages. Considering the work that was done a while back to re-template the card query and include the rulings and related data, this was a very nice response to see.
49 of the participants said they were satisfied or very satisfied with the Card Gallery. Again, a lot of work was put into the design of the gallery, so it's nice to see that we seem to be hitting close to the mark here.
While 21 of the respondents were satisfied or very satisfied with the Deck Search, 16 of the participants were unfamiliar with the deck search feature and 18 users were neutral about it.
23 of the participants were unfamiliar with the Essay feature, 18 were neutral.
21 respondents advised they were unfamiliar with the News/Calendar feature. Admittedly, during the pandemic, there has not been a lot of news from Fantasy Flight, so this may be a result of that.
18 respondents reported they were unfamiliar with the Organized Play feature. Again, this may be a result of the pandemic, as Organized Play is just now resuming.
47 respondents reported they were satisfied or very satisfied with the Rules feature.
39 responses indicated users that were satisfied or very satisfied with the Spoilers feature. Spoilers are a very work intensive feature to maintain, so it's nice to see that the work is appreciated.
Artists were spread pretty evenly between Unfamiliar (14), Neutral (11), Satisfied (15), and Very Satisfied (17).
New Player Guide
18 respondents were unfamiliar with the New Player Guide, those that were familiar, were predominantly neutral (17).
Master Vault Statistics
32 of the respondents were satisfied or very satisfied with the Master Vault stats.
