Conan Exiles is becoming a joke in game community

Sony and Microsoft stance on security does not allow .db access, a core need to work around certain aspects that do not have sliders. So as long as those 2 behemeths say no access, Funcom (or even GPortal) can’t really help.

I will have to look thru some of my posts…i have suggesetd some simple mechanics and sliders that really only touch on stat tables. Be surprised how much can be done by tweaking a few mor micro controlled numbers.

AGREE! The games official servers are being taken over by toxic players. Great job Funcom and good luck retaining older players and getting new people to join your robust servers! The servers have a cancer and seems to be terminal.

As for harder core, everything has a decay value for number 1. the minute you hit 60 on an official, you are literally just stock piling mats. Even on PVP, the joke is it is easier to farm mats than to raid for them. The time it takes to make 1,000 bombs, i can stash 10,000 foundations worth of mats. And both can be put away in body vaults until needed.
With decay, it would add to the need to actually play the game more constantly once you have your chests of loot. And make a better claim system, at least some sort of slider. Being able to spam 1000 sandstone over an are at level 60 and oils is ridiculously easy.

the secret is to type it after 180 replies when everyone is bored of reading the same stuff over and over again to the point that they don’t care anymore.

Thnx for the tip, keep that in mind.

Maybe that will help :slight_smile:

Sorry to hear that, man. I’m almost there myself :frowning:

Each week, it’s getting harder to find the motivation to refresh my stuff.

Sometimes I hate being right, but for me, the biggest problem with all online games has been - other people. Conan Exiles, being available as a Single-player game too, presents me a refreshing exception to the rule in that I can play the game without being bothered by others.

Whether it’s griefing with existing game mechanics or outright cheating, the problem at the bottom of this all is in the players. Funcom, unfortunately, is unable to stop providing them tools, but I’m sure those same people would find ways to be annoying jerks anyway. This problem won’t go away with mechanical fixes. The only solution is being able to choose who to play with - whether that’s as Single-player or on a private, moderated server.

Honestly, I doubt I would’ve bought CE if it weren’t for SP because MP isn’t really my thing. CE singleplayer is an amazing experience.

I get that they’d probably prefer us using servers for MP but being that SP/CO has a 4 person invite limit, it’d be fair to get rid of tethering for that mode so that you could have the same MP experience that you would on officials, just with a smaller group of people.

Least for console. As I understand it, PC has the ability to run a custom server without going third party route. Console users like me don’t get that option.

I read alot of ppl posting that ppl with legitimate complaints are “whining”…but most players dont find out funcoms stance on admin intervention until it is too late…if funcom was straightforward about the games issues, then ppl couldnt complain about it…if you told me the water was full of sharks, and i dove in than thats on me…but if you waited to tell me until im in the mouth of one, well, thats on you…

Well peoples, it would seem that Funcom has been taking stock of our discussions regarding the behavioural problems on Official Servers, and have recently revised and tightened up the rules surround official server use. Most of you will now see this at the top of the Forum’s list of threads:

It is good that it was linked, apparently, it was there for 3 days but because it is pinned under the conan exiles’ main section, I didn’t even notice it. They should pin it here under “general discussion” which is the most commonly used section. The community guidelines should be moved here as well instead of being pinned under “players helping players”.

Same here. This is at least a sign they are hearing the legit community. So will stand corrected on some of my latest posts about them not caring.

In all honesty, these rules were in the process of being developed and finalized on the 14th. They were only made public this morning. The moderators were given a heads up on this yesterday.

@WhatMightHaveBeen and @Narelle I am SO glad they they decided to to do this. Something had to give. PvP especially was in a bad way. Which wasnt their fault of course, but rather that of the cheaters, undermeshers and griefers who were ruining the experience for everyone else on officials. Even if there is some initial backlash, I believe with with all of my grim grey heart that they have made the right call.

Funny thing is, at one multiple people asked for this mainly, a list of what is and is not acceptable on officials. That at least takes ammunition from cheaters who would say “There are no rules”. now, at least when i see something, i can use reasoning to sas, hey that is on the list of no-no’s. Contact the clan first, and let them know. just in case it was an accident/or not known. If they are trolls, they will be belligerent. Then i can report, knowing I at least warned them of the possible trolley infraction before hand.

Phewwww…thought i was being a jerk for 2 days while this was out there, when in reality, I was just being…well a lesser jerk lol.

Exactly, this is the second unseen layer of benefit which accompanies these changes; it has just empowered and in a sense also ‘deputised’ the honest players. The genuine players can warn them what will happen if such behaviour continues, and they are then more likely to think twice about breaking the rules before Funcom even needs to interveen. This may sound silly, but we may well witness the rise of the ‘Minutemen’ here on official servers if you catch my drift. ie-good players will work together to circumvent bad ones. Although without Preston Garvey thank goodness. :laughing:
