Research reports to add on research section.

New section is coming up nicely (recycling ftw), and I could start taking suggestions for reports to add on this section. At the moment it is pretty much the same as game tools section just with different context, I might change it to be bit more compact tho.
I know there are quite many already there somewhere but I was hoping you guys could dig them up for me and post here :v.

Requirements:
  • Title for the report
  • Author (doh).
  • Description (What/How/Where, results etc.)
  • Few word description on what game it relates to / what it is based on (eg. "Battlefield 4", "Based on player database of BF4")
  • Date when report was originally posted (if possible).
  • Link to forum post / file / page

Allowed subjects of reports (suggested report should go to one or more of these. Feel free to suggest more subjects):
  • Statistical/Empericial analysis done on anything related gaming (game mechanics, players, etc)
  • Mathematical calculations / Theorems on game mechanics (Should be somewhat advanced, like 3VN's T100)
  • Bigger reports on different statistical values, like "what's the most commonly used weapon". (Something that is not available elsewhere.)

Other "requirements":
  • Must be based on something rock-solid / commonly accepted! No personal opinions / assumptions except in the ending (when interpreting the result).
  • While not absolute requirement, one should ALWAYS cite sources. Google fu exists, but it's author's responsibility to ease reader's job.


That should be it. Naturally I might have forgotten something so please punch me with a reply if you see something wrong with this list above.

Alright added that to the list (assuming 3VN doesn't mind :v). Where are all the rest researchs/analysis?
@pmax
At least you did one, but not sure about adding it to anything before I get answer from you.

Bumping for attention as I am back on doing this thing. Needs more "reports"

@3VerstsNorth
Maybe adding the game mechanic analysis you did?

Also do you guys thing "Analytics"/"Analysis" would be appropiate term for reports that are not really under game mechanics nor statistics category? (ie. t100)

Shooting mechanics would fit there well I think. The T100 and click rate analyses should be redone however, because the framing changes everything.

Do we have any vehicle research and reports that can be added?
