It’s a known fact that there are a number of issues with Conan Exiles - exploits ranging from max stats in all attributes to duping of explosives and equipment, lack of moderation to address extreme racism and harassment, and flat out bugs resulting in structures completely disappearing or players being randomly reset to nothing.
All of these issues are simply minor annoyances in a world where leveling is easy -
Being harassed on a particular server? Funcom Customer Support even acknowledges that the only way to address this is to move server.
“If the behavior of other players continues to be a persistent issue you may want to consider playing on another server.”
On a server where clans are abusing exploits? move to another server…
Basically - you could attempt to address all the existing issues by starting up again on a new server in hopes the community on that server was more mature and had more respect for the game/genre.
The POI experience nerf killed this completely. Funcom has basically taken no responsibility for all of the existing issues, instead putting the weight and burden of having to deal with these issues fully on the backs of the playerbase. Moving servers was not a big deal when you could level to 60 within 2-3 days of POI Exploration and Journey farming. Now - leveling is a grind, worst than most modern MMO’s, and the only real choice for anyone dealing with a bad situation is… to leave the game completely.
To put things in perspective - official server #1597 had one clan running around named No Asians, another clan Shady Nasty and their sister guild Nasty Shade constantly spamming chat with how Germans are the N-word of Europe… and wiping out bases, telling the server noone stood a chance as they were duping bombs and resources.
My 3 friends and I originally planned to simply move to a different server. The exp nerf hit the next day, we tested out the new exp… and now have simply quit the game.
Funcom, I’d suggest reconsidering your decision, as you’re currently shooting yourselves in the foot by not providing a path to green for players plagued by shortcomings created by you.
