I personally see Conan Exiles as it’s own niche catering to a specific community and it keeps me coming back even after spending hours on other survival type games.
Now, I believe that shaping the game to match others (“popular” titles, etc) will just make it another clone. But, I do have some feedback for improvements that may benefit everyone and should not change what this game is about.
Please feel free to add your own suggestions.
In no particular order:
Server issue reporting (down/lag/etc) and player reporting improvements. An example is the crash system on PS4, it makes a video, takes screenshots and sends all console logs (most not accessible to the player) directly to the developers. Benefit: An easier to use system that gathers all required information to take action quickly, replaces zendesk.
“Test Live” for consoles. Possibly through the “closed beta” type system that is already present on these systems. Benefit: Get patch feedback to make changes before it is deployed to the affected platform.
Major update/Patch schedule, designated “hot fix day”, regular and predictable maintenance window. Benefit: More communication and setting expectations.
Public Community Severs. This would be a hybrid of official and private servers, the community contributes monetarily for FC to provide a neutral active admin. [this needs it’s own topic really]
LAN play. Self hosted, local server app for both PC and Consoles, without the need for an external connection or service like FCLive, PSN, XBox Live…etc
Offline (single player) and LAN Play map travel to/from EL, Siptah, and future maps.
This would be actual travel and NOT the limited transfer (and loose your stuff) of update 2.5.
Note: I do have game-play related feedback, but it may end up new topic.
Thanks for reading this wall of text.
