My story: Not a happy ending

The date, November 14th, 2017. I’m ecstatic, This amazing game i want to play comes out today and the 34.99 is burning a hole in my eWallet. PURCHASED it says! HORAAH! I Download the game and its everything i thought it would be, im in love. so what, you DC once an hour, its early access and i know what that means… but then it happens… the day i started to hate funcom. HUGE update rolls around promising to fix the bugs and connection issues. YES! Twitter goes crazy! I’m crying im so happy! The update installs, i log in, then i play for 10 seconds and CRASH! straight to desktop. it happens no problem. i relaunch it. open, join, CRASH! this goes on for 2-3 hours! I go to twitter crying, i put in help tickets. all i get told is “reinstall” like i havent done it ten times already. FURIOUS i try over and over for about a month to no avail. no help, no resolution, no enjoyment from my brief 40 dollar purchase. fast forward 1 and half year later, tired of playing ark, i figure “they have to have it fixed by now!” I DL, I launch, I join. CRASH! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i cry but it happens, i try 10 more times CRASH CRASH CRASH CRASH! Defeated and humiliated i uninstall conan swearing to never waste the memory space on it again. Fast forward. September 17, 2019. Enter DomSolami “Yo heartlesz Conan just went live with a pretty update to boot” now in this past two years i have grown into a skeptic so i think “yeah and im sure theres magic by now to” sarcastically. But ONE MORE TIME i tell myself. I DL, I Launch… I RUN TO THE RIVER KILLING EVERYTHING IN SIGHT! its amazing the game was so much better, the graphics, the new combat controls, among hundreds of other tiny little changes. YES! I ■■■. I invite all my old friends, GOOD FRIENDS IVE MADE FROM THIS GAME that i still play other games with. they all download it! we rush level 60! We take back our old base location! WE WAGE BLOODY WAR as we do, IT WAS GLORIOUS. Im in love, it has always been my favorite survival game (when it works) . Tiny time skip. October 1st 2019. after pillaging and raiding all the tribes around us they banded up and raided our base. it happens we will get them all back we figure! rebuild the base. October 2nd, 2019. we get them back. AND ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE! suicide bombers destroying what ever they can get to (because they couldn’t get me in the hands) this goes on for two hours. me and one mate against 4 people. me killing and protecting my mate, him crafting sandstone as fast as possible to plug up the holes that are appearing in the base from the repeated Kamikaze. RAID TIME IS ALMOST OVER! i yell to him KEEP CRAFTING THOSE ****ING FOUNDATIONS! 9pm HITS WERE SAFE! no loot lost, all gear and thralls safe, while we didnt win the war, we survived the battle. i go to bed content. Happy even. THE most fun i have EVER had in a survival pvp war. ecstatic to get off work tomorrow and put in the gameplan we came up with the night before…i get off work…i get home… i turn on my xbox… I launch… I join… CRASH! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NO ****ING WAY i yell. i sign into another account to see if its my account CRASH! I go upstairs and use my buddies Xbox CRASH! CRASH CRASH CRASH! WHY FUNCOM DO YOU TEASE ME SO! WHY DO YOU ONLY LET ME LICK THE TEET OF THIS GAME AND NOT GO IN FULLY RAW! GIVE ME YOUR LOVE!

Popcorned. :laughing: You’re my kind of player, welcome to the “got stuff for now” crew!

Not sure if you’re aware, but there is a work around for the crashes on Xbox. Just load single player, offline, before starting a session. Fixes the crashes for me 99% of the time.


I also had crashes in EA but after launch, it was fixed. It runs without flaws now.

I don’t know buddy, but your PC/System seems broken/corrupted. Check your drivers, check your settings. Do a clean OS reinstall, swap hardware. Etc. etc.

yes my buddy was having the issue. something with the map loading and crashing the console. ty for the tip though!

Ill stay as long as we got stuff lol

Sit beside the river for long enough and eventually your enemy’s body will float past you.

There’s always booty for you to loot! Let us know if your xbox makes any progress.

Good old Sun Tzu neglects to mention that the wait will be considerably shorter if you hire competent assassins.
