Unlike Ark, somebody could steal your thrall out from under you while its in your wheel, something that cant happen in ark. Nobody can steal the thing you worked for. They can only kill it.
I guess you haven’t played awhile. You can steal dinos with Cryopods. Like Pokemon. Its actually way worse than conan for stealing tames. You watch someone with a high level dino, wait for them to crypod it, quickly kill them, and their Dino is now yours forever.
The reason why I say its not fair to compare them, is Ark is a Taming game, with some Exploring and “dungeon” if you can call it that, elements.
Where as Conan is a Exploring/Dungeon Game, with some Taming elements.
Two different big focuses. I play both. I ran out of Content for Ark, and so I moved to Conan till there’s more Ark content.
