WE…are the CONAN community who respect the author and creator of the genre to keep it pure to what he had intended it to be.
You may have processed the information but your lack of respect of the core material and selfish opinion have prevented you from seeing the bigger picture. I was subtle last time I said this so allow me to be blunt…
IF YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT THE LORE GO PLAY A DIFFERENT GAME AND STOP WASTING THIS COMMUNITY’S TIME.
Hopeful I made my point a bit more clear this time.
As a paying customer I speak my mind what I expect from this game. I agree with OP and stated my opinion on the matter. I still don’t care about the books, and I’m here to play a video game just as much as the next player.
Why would I make a video game with fireballs, when Conan Exiles is already close to that. Maybe Funcom will collect the valuable feedback I’ve provided and add offensive magic, or just a reskin for bows and arrows. I expect the next update after 3.0 will put the cannon into glass cannon.
I’m not making the game worse for everyone. It’s up to Funcom to make the game they want for their audience.
As far as opinions go, put the effort to say something original for once.
Uh oh…hyboryan age has no fireballz…angry noises …is not an opinion.
I’ll vote with my wallet like all the 100k+ concurrent players did when the game launched and we were promised a road map with offensive magic in it.
Lore won’t save the game. It’s the actual money that people will spend. What a shocker, right?
Hey, that’s not a bad idea. I’m actually impressed. I like that. Video games should be video games not the reenactment of a book. Sure, we can have some lore stuf, but in the end it’s about having fun.
Back to Conan Exiles, being able to create a frozen bridge but unable to sling an ice pellet, seems a bit unrealistic, even by Robert. E. Howard standards.
I absolutely, unequivocally and fundamentally disagree completely. Some of us actually enjoy a cohesive story and use our brains for more than shooting things. Again, maybe this game isn’t for you. Might I suggest something more your speed like Fortnite?
The Exiled Lands are not canon with the books writtent by Robert E. Howard. Neither are those events that are about to be added to the game. A surge with souls flying? A green egg oozing with magic that absorbs human souls? An ice bridge? Adding offensive magic would be the next logical step.
Funcom can also make spells cosmetic. Just imagine, blue fire balls, green fire balls, pink fire balls. I would spend money on that kind of thing and give Funcom my support.
