Since january 2017, the day the servers went online, I log in to enjoy this fantastic idea Funcom had, the game of my dreams, and have been playing since then. Unfortunately, not all ideas/decisions from FC are player friendly, and games are supposed to be fun, not a job, I’ll explain.
Offline Purges, seriously developers, whose idea was this? I came back from a long trip after november to december, lost all my stuff to decay, started over, all over, lots of things, just to discover today at the moment I logged in, a purge was happening in my tree house, all gone! Decay is already a pain, but understandable, but Offline Purges??? really? and I played today 20 min before the purge happened, just logged, and saw the end of it, everything I did since when I came back from the trip at the start of this month, a beautiful T3 Kithan tree house… gone! (funny thing, I bought the Khitan DLC days ago to start support the dire times this game is facing, I feel naive).
In a PvP server, if this was by a raid from players, but no, an offline Purge, I know this can happen with everyone, but never happened on houses I used to build on trees, just once, its enough for me to give up on this game, even loving it, spending hours and hours a day, going to sleep late at nite, I can’t accept this, because this is no fun, this is NOT a friendly System, this is NOT an enjoyable feature where you play so much, to be wasted happening when you’re NOT playing, the purge should happen when you’re ONLINE, not offline.
It feels like a job, having to do everything again, hours and hours and hours again because of a troll system, yes, I say troll, because you feel like a clown playing doing all that grinding, to be wasted by a damn offline purge, thats it, I can’t stand this.
With all my heart, I wish you success Funcom, I really do, this game is unique, with tons of potential that you know, I’ll continue checking the progress and comming here on the forums to know whats going on, opining, but I just can’t spend more time playing repetitive things because of a feature that I consider wrong for a casual (even hardcore) play. I have a life, and I don’t want to waste it here doing exactly the same things because of a troll decision, im sorry, I don’t want to sound rude, but this decision is wrong, and you will still lose players because of it. I may be back when (if) offline purge is not a thing anymore. And no, I won’t play on private servers.
Have a good New Year’s Eve, may Conan Exiles and your next future games prevail, and watch out carefully your decisions.
