Oh, Lars and Penates! Kao, how could you ever allow University of Denver to start posting surveys again?
OP -- not no, but hell no.
They won't go away; this is how they resume these "Research", the 579 of them.

. As found in this study, World of Warcraft ranks high in levels of motivation for the elements of immersion, achievement, and socialization, and these are what drives gamers to play World of Warcraft and continue to play. However, as stated before in the introduction, the area of motivators is broad and expanding for World of Warcraft and other videogames and there are still answers out there to be researched.
The study shown here is only a small part as to why this is the case; there is room for more research to find out more answers
as to why the specific qualities of World of Warcraft keep gamers so interested.
