Quick notice/clarification for those this may affect:

So in order to earn drops from viewing streams, it looks like you’ll need to use a browser or the mobile app and not an app from your TV or console. Thank you @Rollotomozi for the heads-up.

I am going to assume this is current information given it’s from Twitch’s own site, so please be aware of this when viewing streams!


Thanks for reading! Replies are open; feel free to comment or drop your Twitch channel below!

Thank you @AndyB ! This is a great start with the notifications on what to expect for each day and drop time requirements. Please keep this up it is more important than you think.

Also, since you asked…h3rb1x on twitch…

Will this be the only time we can get these or will they be available in the future?

As far as I am aware, the current plan is that these items are exclusive to this event.

Hello @AndyB, Do streamers also get the drop?

Just need to know if I need to budget my time accordingly for both streaming and watching. :wink:

Edit: Also, any footwear for this new armor?

Thanks.

I’m all for using a promotion like this to expose players to new content creators, but…REALLY!? spreading the content out so that a player has to watch 10 HOURS of Twitch to get these drops. And they are available no other way? Sounds to me like you guys REALLY don’t value my time. Imagine the mods I could work on in 10 HOURS. I love this game and, as a completionist I’d like to have all the items… but seriously. Requiring a person to dedicate more than a full work day to beef up your game’s publicity? It’s personal opinion, and non-objective, but it feels REALLY sleezy to me. I will do it, because I love the game. But I want to make sure that you guys over at Funcom know that I disagree with this move and would have handled it differently, such as:

As a repeat customer of Funcom whom has put over 3000 hours into your game (many of which were grinding away to make a small bit of progress) and bought all of your DLC’s, and additional copies for my friends as an excuse to support CE, I urge the ENTIRE FunCom team from upper management down to the design teams to be more considerate in general of their player’s time. Otherwise, as much as I love Conan Exiles, I will have to go elsewhere. Players shouldn’t have to no-life the game to be part of its community. Just because I enjoy video games doesn’t mean I don’t have other stuff to do, unfortunately we can’t all be unemployed college students (man I miss those days).

Enjoyment and Engagement are not the same. Stealing people’s attention for profit is evil in my eyes. Let me come back to the game because the game is fun, not because I am compelled to play catch-up. Please consider this with future promotions. Spread things out so that people don’t have to forsake real world obligations for 5 DAYS to participate in a community event.

#RantOver…

P.S. The team did a great job on the rewards though. They look awesome.
Also P.S. I’m not trying to bash you guys, but I am expressing distaste for the decision to require 5 consecutive days of twitch to get these items, some of which we don’t even know the stats on yet. I also want to make it clear that I fully support the IDEA of Twitch Drops, just please be more considerate of time requirements and maybe space things out so it’s not a 1 or Nothing thing.

Wow, no other way to get the drops is pretty crap. I work 50+ hour work weeks and don’t have the time to watch twitch. And even still would much rather be playing Conan than watching someone else play Conan with what little free time I have. I really hope y’all reconsider keeping the items as a twitch exclusive. Almost feels like a slap in the face to anyone who has purchased everything y’all have put out and continually supported the game.
Will the items at least be spawnable in a single player session or private server @AndyB

Hello @The7thCrest I understand where you are coming from but, to be honest the method is much better than other drops I have seen.

Since it’s open to all streamers with drops enabled (like me) you will have 24 hours to accumulate the needed 2 hours, for each of the days, on any Conan stream.

Compared to another developer that has the drops only on their channel, and you need 30 minutes for a drop but, they only stream for one hour so, if you are late, leave, lose connection, etc…the item is no longer attainable.

I’m still probably gonna start dragging myself out of bed early all next week in the hopes that a stream is going before I have to leave for work, but I gotta say I’m kind of relieved that that armor set doesn’t look like anything I’d actually want to wear and the placeables don’t look or sound like anything I’d really want, so I won’t feel as bad if I miss them.

(Oh who am I kidding, I’m still gonna be unreasonably upset if I only get a couple armor pieces and then miss out on the rest, because my brain is broken like that.)

Just put it on in the background and do something else…

I fully agree with you. However, I would like to say just because the rest of the industry does it WORSE, doesn’t mean it’s good.

Warning… Clarification + life story incoming:
I am personally very picky on these sort of things myself because I fall into a common demographic of compulsive players, but I am also a game developer myself, and partially disabled (of which my condition leaves me with about 6 hours a day less than the average working person). I just find that, in general, the games industry–like social media–often pushes for “Engagement” over “Fun”/“Enjoyment”, and in the process of pursuing engagment instead of the latter leaves people regretting the time many people spend playing their video games.

What a lot of companies don’t realize is that if a player is not ENJOYING the time that they are engaged with your game–even after the step away and the game is out of focus–they will eventually come to resent you and stop playing your games entirely in favor of games that make them feel good.
Pursuing “Engagement” makes sense if you make money every second that a player is playing your game (like on social media where ads bombard the user constantly); however, Conan Exiles, as well as many other video games, makes its money from game sales and DLC (+MicroTrans, +Subscriptions for other games).

User Engagement is GOOD, but only to a certain point. If your users are ENGAGED, and ENJOYING IT (i.e. having fun), then congratulations, you have done your job as a designer well. However, once users feel like they have to ENGAGE even when they don’t want to–IDK say… like a solo Conan player on a PvP server with no clan mates during a 6hr raid window that would like to go to dinner without risking their entire virtual fortune and in-game progress–then they start to dread the experience… then they quit, and then resent the company making the game. Pursuing engagement without pursuing enjoyment/fun turns “Is this game fun?” to “Is this game an efficient skinner-box”

While many mentally healthy people can easily toss some of these games aside, others–such as myself-- have a hard time disengaging and don’t take kindly to these forms of games, as they can be disastrous to our mental wellbeing. To some of us, it’s why we refuse to gamble–and why we hate games that include random reinforcement (i.e. Gambling) into monetization schemes.

If your game is good. People will want more and will engage with it. Seeking engagement for engagement’s sake is a huge turnoff for me when it comes to games AND game companies, and I avoid like the plague companies that I know do this. This twitch drop instills in me the same sort of ugly feeling of pursing engagement for the sake of engagement, and I don’t like it because I don’t want to have to drop Conan over things like this (because I legit love the game), but if it doesn’t I may have to part ways with my favorite game.

Going back to monetization, Conan’s monetization is based on DLC. If I am enjoying the game (I am) I will buy the DLC (I have). If I am engaged, but not enjoying the game I will quit and not buy the DLC. Conan’s monetization is based on people enjoying the game and buying more content for it–A great business model, IMO. There is no real business need–unless FC is somehow making money off of constant engagement (ex. ads, etc)-- that players should have to excessively engage with Conan (Note: I define excessive engagement as >~15hr a week) in order to enjoy the experience in ANY mode of the game (Including Solo PvP).

I say all of this to explain WHY I am so agitated by the handling and scheduling of the drops. This is a long response because it has something that has been bothering me with some of game design elements of Public PvP Conan, and I have tolerated it because it seems the design team has been moving the game in a positive direction. However, this announcement was from the business side of the team, and I just want to make it very clear that I–as a loyal customer–do not like.

Who has 2 hrs a day to watch twitch?? Borrowing my kids iPads, set and forget is what I’ll be doing lol :laughing:

Not everyone can multi-task like a champ. But it is what I will do. But for me, I sometimes have an attention deficit. For this reason I’ll have to mute it the whole time.

Also, not everyone has the luxury I do of being at home on their computer 90% of the time.

Some people get off work and wanna play Conan for 3 hours… some people have dinner plans after work…maybe they have kids… what if the kids get sick? Does that person have to miss out?

The common answer would be “yes”, “s*** happens”. To which I would say… fair. However…

Why make it less convenient for people to get involved in your community event? Why not space things out so that people have more opportunities to engage rather than “YOU HAVE TO BE HERE FOR 5 DAYS IN A ROW FOR 2 HOURS” or you’ll miss out. Instead of “Between the 27th and 31st, watch 10HR of Conan Exiles streams”. Same time commitment, same rewards, flexible time schedule.

Its free stuff.

The argument is not free vs. paid content. It’s the fact that the only way to acquire said items is by using a platform that is not the actual game to acquire the items. Combined with the ten hours of watch time across multiple days when most people have jobs that they have to do at those times.

Not trying to be a jerk here… but… if I make 7.50 an hour… 10 hours is $75

Good = Good. I was comparing drops to drops, because I collect them (even for games I don’t own), but I refuse to get the ones that provide one random loot box drop per day, after “watching” (I use the term loosely here) for only 15 minutes since, it may just give you 2 plant fibers. :joy: So, we do agree on the gambling.

I appreciate your explanation and providing your feelings on the matter, thank you for the clarification and insights.

Regarding engagement, well, there is none of you don’t want to engage. Turn on the stream, walk away (work or code), claim the drop whenever you want, it will be in your twitch inventory.

I don’t mind watching others play (mainly to see if a game looks good before I buy it), but that’s just me, it’s not for everyone and that’s fine.

Regarding monetization the ads on twitch only benefit twitch, but, that’s a whole new thread.

About the business side, well, it’s “free” advertising for the game without paying the streamer.

The drops are an incentive for a streamer to play the game to show it to their community, and an incentive for viewers to stay and watch for a bit (here’s some “free” stuff).

Funcom now gets new eyes on the game, with the possibility of turning that viewer into a potential customer (who know what the twitch turn over is, but I would guess small).

This is not for everyone, only for a targeted audience section.

For example, I never pre-order and I don’t have Conan’s Royal Armor or Conan’s Atlantean Sword. But, others do pre-order and they have the bonus.

I probably won’t even get all of the items on the announced drops, but, someone else will and that’s fine by me.

But, since this is important to you how about the “set it and forget” option or even asking a friend to turn it for you while you code and work, there are other options.

Thanks for your time.

But you can just turn it on and literally do something else… go eat a burger, take a nap… anything else. No one will know… and most importantly, no one will care.
