Hi! I am currently finding out some information about making a nice game. It would be a pleasure if you give your small time answering my small survey for this study. If you have a feedback to my survey, please feel free to comment on it so I can improve it better since it's my first time making a such study.

The character statues that you can build in My Castle are certainly interesting, indeed. I find them very useful for making my army as powerful as possible. That being said, however, I'm sure you're aware that not all of the characters' statues actually correspond to their #1 best stat, unlike the avatar's. That's why I decided to put together a project/study of sorts, on what their actual "boons" are/should be. I looked at every non-avatar/capturable unit's growth rates and stats to make my decisions (for the children, I looked at their pre-inheritance growth rates because that made the most sense to me. In truth, their stats can greatly vary and their stats with the highest growth rates may or may not be that of their represented statues). I hope you find it interesting. Here is my project Here you can find the game's character/statue combos for comparison Overall, I suppose I've concluded that with very few units having an "actual boon" of magic, defense, or resistance, that it makes sense why the developers shuffled the units around. That being said, however, some of the choices they did make were still questionable in my opinion (Keaton speed? Subaki speed? Rinkah strength? Azura magic? Come on!).
So, I've heard the American public schooling system ragged on a lot for its poor quality (particularly in math), even having seen some articles that try to explain how and why it's flawed (links at the bottom of this post). Though what's always left me confused is why students from, say, Finland (which ranks way higher than the US worldwide on education) would study abroad in America. Besides interest in our culture. I'm no fan of the public school system, myself, but this always left me scratching my head.
