With the problem statement “How can the Information Architecture on e-sports tournament websites be designed in such a way that it accommodates the users’ interaction needs with the content of the website, specifically in regards to navigation, organization and labeling?”, this focus of this thesis is on the users and how these users can be a part of the design process. The case that is examined in this thesis is an e-sport tournament website in the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) genre, more specifically the game Heroes of Newerth. The website is called HenTour.com.
In the thesis the Information Ecology is examined with special considerations to context, content and users. The methods applied are Heuristic evaluation, card sorting and a web survey. The analysis results in a list of recommendations for the case website and on a more general level it gives a means to easily evaluate and redesign a website with particular focus on the users.
