One of the core parts of Player XP is the categorisation system. As explained in our platform introduction article, to assist you in identifying key insights and track changes over time, Player XP has 20 pre-set categories in place across all of its games. These categories aim to group all discussion players have when they talk online about a specific title.


Throughout the dashboard, you will see the categorised referenced by name and icon, a list of the 20 categories (and their corresponding icon) can be found below.
