Our friends at the University of Colorado at Boulder are conducting a scientific study of Halo: Reach players on team dynamics within the game. The idea is to sort out, for instance, whether younger players are better lone wolves than older players, what impact playing on a real team makes on your overall in-game performance, etc. To do this, we need your help. Do it for Science!

Here’s how it works: you visit the web survey and answer some questions about yourself (demographics), about the way you play Halo: Reach and which gamertags you play with. The whole process takes about 10 minutes. After that, if you care, we’ll show you how your Halo: Reach service record stacks up against the universe of 1,000,000 other Reach players. (This is similar, but more general than the Halo Charts comparison.) If you’re interested, we’ll send you the results of the study when it’s completed.
The survey does ask you to create an account on the study website, but you’re free to create and use a throwaway email address (at yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc) specifically for this purpose. You need a valid Xbox Live gamertag and you need to have played some Halo: Reach with it (preferably your primary Halo: Reach gamertag) because part of the web survey involves information derived from your game history.
