Abstract [en]

The industry of games is growing rapidly. The demands for better and better games grow along with it. But it isn?t just the game in itself that fully determines if it is a success or not. There are lots of small surrounding features that also help making a difference in the tough competition. This thesis will look into one of these aspects, the online multiplayer lobby. A study on the lobbies available today will show that they can be improved. Here it will be shown what parts of the lobby that are good and should be developed further. The paper will show what players strive for when they play and socialize in the lobby. This discussion will be followed by several suggestions to show how the lobby can be improved.

Abstract [sv]

Dagens spelindustri växer snabbt. Tillsammans med den växer även kraven på spelen. Men är det verkligen bara ett kul spel som avgör dess framgång? Även omkringliggande aspekter kan ha en stor inverkan på hur spelet uppfattas och mottas. Alla små detaljer blir viktiga i denna knivskarpa marknad. Den här rapporten kommer ta upp en av dessa omkringliggande aspekter, nämligen, online lobbyn. I rapporten kommer en studie av den lyftas fram och visa vad som fungerar och inte fungerar med dagens lobbys. Spelarnas mål med att spela och tillbringa tid i lobbyn kommer också att lyftas fram. Avslutningsvis kommer ett antal förslag på nya funktioner att presenteras för att visa de förbättringar som går att göra.
