    Better Game Design through Data Mining
    David Kennerly

  Players spend millions of man-hours selecting optimum strategies
  in a massive multiplayer online game (MMOG).  They are getting the
  best return on investment (ROI) on your MMOG.  Are you?  In this
  talk, learn how to:

    1. Balance the economy.
    2. Catch cheaters.
    3. Cut production costs.
    4. Increase customer renewal.

  Learn when, what, how, and why to optimize player performance from
  a MMOG designer who analyzed millions of player-hours during
  several years.
