Conan exiles has been out and playable for several years. I mean seriously, it was in early access in 2017, and I have played and ran a server from day one. Sure, I take breaks, but I always come back. However, not anymore!
Loading into game takes an upwards of 5 minutes. Nothing is optimized, this is what you get when funcom has years of development to make a smooth running game. Did you hire another company to develop the secret world, because that game was great until you neutered it?
As an unreal developer, I do know that the Unreal Engine is a pain. However with proper knowledge the player should never sit on the server screen frozen for three minutes before they can interact. The client can’t even connect directly to my dedicated server running in the same machine. To try this feat it is going to be a good five to eight minute wait for it to tell me that I lost connection. However, the server never noticed I was trying to connect in the first place. I have to connect through the internet, after the wait that at least works fine.
Seriously, my machines doesn’t suck, and I have a very solid internet connection. I have been sticking with this game so long through the ups and downs, but I just can’t take your development mediocrity any longer.
You keep putting out updates, but never update the innate problems in the client.
