Hi! I need help! For my school math project I'm doing a study of the revive ability and who in guild wars 2 uses the ability the most! If you'd be willing to answer these questions:
1. Age

2. Gender

3. Whether or not you like the revive feature. (Yes / No)

4. # of revives performed. (Heroes panel -> Achievements -> Category: Community -> Bottom Panel)

5. Hours played. (Type /age in chat bar)

That would be really great!
You can mail me the answers in game on guild wars 2! My character name is Signa Talon. If you people could help me out with this I would be forever grateful have a good day!

Huh. Well I mean I'll do it, just because I'm actually interested in seeing my own numbers, but I worry that this isn't exactly appropriate for an actual real life math project. But hey, good luck either way. I'm hopping on now to check my numbers.

Thanks a lot, I realize its a strange subject but the point of the project in itself is to be able to take data, apply it to mathematical equations, and then explain your results so it works for me.

Sent. You going to post the results (if it shows some nice curves) when you gather all the data?

Not at home at the moment but will send it later this afternoon.

Would be interesting to see the numbers when you are done.

Yes in gratitude for your responses I will post some of the anonymous graphs that I will make from the data. Thank you all so much!

As promised here is a correlation graph of the data you all helped me to get. Thanks to your support my math project is now complete :) This graph has an x variable of the number of hours played and a Y variable of number of revives performed. The graph has a moderately positive correlation and upon further calculation my correlation coefficient turned out to be .76 which means that it can be concluded that how many revives a player has performed does depend on the hours they played. I don't have a graph for the other variable but when using frequency tables I found that players around the age of 37 are more likely to have over 500 revives completed than other ages. Again thank you for all your support and heres the graph!
