I get that Conan Exiles is a game. If one has a meeting in the afternoon with friends, one should just chance an offline purge, and enjoy an evening out. No big deal right?
Theoretically this feeling of forebooding doom that a purge chance can evoke is suppose to be exciting, and it is at the beginning.
In PvE, the more time you invest in Conan Exiles, the more attached you become to the game, and the more you feel compelled to maintain and protect all that you’ve built. Suddenly priorities change. You are so nervous about purges ruining your hard earned base and thralls, that you are compelled to re-think the evening plans…
When purges rarely happen for 2 weeks straight, it becomes an unhealthy routine of hoping for a purge that never happens, wishing you’d have gone out with those friends who invited you…the invitations becoming rarer and rarer due to continuous declines over “a silly game.”
My request and suggestion is that a “Purge me now” button get’s added, so people can trigger the purge when they are at 100% purge meter threshold. This also allows the purge to be triggered UNTIL it actually works, as opposed to finishing itself 10 seconds later, without resetting the timer in most cases.
