What pissed me off is that they completelt ignoring it, twitter spammed, here tons of people, steam getting spammed and ignoring. Im avtually boiling even more about the idea that i know that IF they reverse it which I think they do when they see all platforms spammed no way it happening tonight, which means day 2 from launch (taking into consideration they been threw this shiit alrdy in EA so no excuse) and u alrdy cant play because of a major decision made in 5min. DAY 2!! And ppl alrdy getting screwed, damn i dont care if i sit spam join for 1h im used to unprepared launches but a decision making it so i wont even bother go on at day fuucking 2 after waiting months for this is making me boil even more as im typing. And again the most frustrating this is they wont do anything about it tonight, MAYBE they do the change tomorrow ”we have listened to our community and conflict is back”
What focks me over is that they make a calculated and planned post explaining they new modes they have, 3 simple modes and conflict was extremely popular, in 5min they decide to scrap it just to ”add more pvp” servers which is just filled with bases in locations not suited for pvp, grrr im raging just typing this.
Only way i can forgive this and forget is if they take action TONIGHT, not tomorrow after they go home ignoring everyone and sleep and come calm back to office ”ok lets fix this so they stop whining” fock me im pissed and the lack of communication before and after this decision is the worst thing
Add my name to the boycott petition to go back to conflict servers…that’s why so many of us chose it in the first place. Funcom just spit in all our faces to cater to the pvp players( the lowest common denominator). I want my last 34 hrs back. Raiding bases when players are offline tending to their IRL concerns is no PVP, there’s only P.
Well I know 4 players who quit instantly after this decision. Pretty sure none are coming back after this. We were looking for playing a long evening together and result is everyone else went to do something more fun and I’m here to criticize stuff as it’s my way of enjoying the situation.
Potential customers should know that their Server is at risk of being redefined/changed to a different style.
Agree. This is exactly the opposite of the reason why many players previously preferred Official servers. With Officials, there was supposed to be a feeling of permanence. When you build, your buildings might even last for years, since there are supposed to be no further wipes. They really did a taboo by changing this server.
From how it sounds, Funcom isn’t getting any additional advantages to renting servers. They’re hesitant to buy more, because they are beholden to keeping them for years to come.
They did a terrible thing by luring players into PvE-Conflict, only to dissolve that ruleset. I hope that we’ll still see a ruleset that is somewhere between PvE and PvP. There’s a huge chunk of the player-base that wants some kind of middle ground.
The ENTIRE reason that this game is MUCH better than Ark or any other competitors, is the fact that it had PVE Conflict servers. Nobody wants to spend 40 hours making a base just so that they can wake up with a gaping ■■■■■■■■ the next morning because it was inevitably destroyed overnight. Nothing about that is fun. I’ve had a day of enjoyment from release and already the entire game has been spoiled for me and a bunch of others. This was easily one of the biggest mistakes I’ve ever seen a dev make and the game JUST came out.
Please change the pve conflict servers back and just add more new servers for pvp.
Thanks for letting us know how you feel about the change. I’ll be the first to admit this isn’t an ideal situation, and I understand if you’re frustrated about it.
As the pitchforks impale me, I would like to first at least present our reasoning behind the change:
From a numbers perspective, our timeline data showed PvE Conflict servers were generally under capacity at many times, which tells us the servers weren’t as popular.
There was overwhelming demand for new servers, particularly PvP servers, which data showed were packed at nearly all times. A look at social media or the forums corroborates this!
In order to meet the demands of the rapidly-growing community, we wanted to fast-track as many new PvP servers online as possible. This included converting PvE Conflict into PvP servers.
Now, clearly, there’s some unrest about this decision. We certainly can’t blame you and we’re sorry for disrupting your gaming experience. Now, I’ll be honest: while we can’t give any immediate promises about what the future of PvE Conflict as a game mode will be in the future, I will say the team is acutely aware of the feedback you’re sending our way.
So please, keep letting us know what you think. Thanks all.
I have played 200+ hours on conan exiles official PVP servers only to get offline raided over and over again. I was done with this game and I only came back to play because of the PVE-conflict servers as I like to PVP but don’t like loosing my base over and over again while I am not online to people who live on the game and play all day long.
Unfortunately I will have to call it quits again now as I don’t feel like wasting my time again. So disappointed as I was enjoing the game so far full PVP with raiding is just a waste of time and normal PVE is just too boring. PVE-conflict seemed just right… PVP fun without loosing your base. Such a shame!
Thank you for your response. I appreciate your hard work! One thing I’d like to point out is the type of person that the PvE-Conflict server caters to. Those who work during prime time or generally have much on their plate and thus don’t have the time to play consistently seem to have gravitated to this server. I, and those similar to myself, still enjoy PvP but don’t want to see what little time we spend of the game wasted consistently! Which is why this mode is amazing! I hope sales have been sufficent enough to cater to this part of the playerbase. Thank you!
First, game search tagged them as PvP servers so you actually had to know what to look for, unlike full PvP or PvE.
Next, waiting for half an hour or more hitting refresh on favorite only list to join on the server I started building base doesn’t really feel like low population. Sure, it might be low when people are actually at work, school or whatever. You know, this concept was actually good for people that do other things than sit home playing games for most of the day.
But as you wish, best idea ever is to screw up the people that most likely has most income to spend, I’m sure.
Also I would like to point out.
PVE-conflict is preferred by a lot of people because they have jobs. Well guess what. Those people with jobs have the income to buy dlc or whatever you add to the game. I honestly think PVE-conflict with be the supreme server type in the end.
