Hi,

So I am new here and currently starting to work on my bachelorthesis. It is about the prediction of success of a game by looking at the amount of sentiment used per couple. My problem is how I should calculate the amount of sentiment and what statistical model I should use.

Example data: social game consists of pairs with n = amount of turns, s = sentiment used in turn, and y = success of game having two levels, yes or no. (t = total amount of sentiment per couple which I don't know how to calculate)

Let's say couple A has 200 turns with 200 detected sentiment, couple B has 100 turns with 100, obviously couple A has higher sentiment score here. Should I factor in that it is twice because 200 is 2 times 100? Another example: 200 with 125 vs. 300 turns with 275, then couple B has higher sentiment but how should I calculate this? Let's say the sentiment used each turn is equal. I just want to know how to calculate t = total sentiment with different amount of turns. T should be my predictor for success.

Is there any way to calculate this in R?

I got some information about hierarchical models, does this take care of problem?

As y has two levels, yes or no, I think I want to use a binomial logistic regression, but not sure either.

Thanks for reading!
