Thanks for fixing Star Metal - Now what about EVERYTHING ELSE!

more you become experienced with this game, more you will notice there are bunch of bugs here :wink:


So you expected them to fix everything in a week? You know that would not happen, they fixed first what they considered more critical, but we should I expect more things fixed very soon

Let me tell you a tale.
A tale of ancient times, when fishing traps and presses would be considered magic. Behold the dark time, when ancient people only had water to drink. When they had to pick fiber by hands, when they had to hunt for each and every single drop of ichor. When people had to venture into crawling caves, filled to the brim with spiders - oh beware of these endless spawning creatures of the dark! …
Ok. Enough with the fun part. :joy:

A potentially good source for ichor are spiders. I always forget wether it was the axe or the pick…

I agree on rhinos, however elephants are funny to slay. I love the two handed sword when fighting them!
Hm. I rarely have issues with teleporting enemies. But I am playing on lowest settings, as my machine isnt as strong as I wish it to be. However, enemy players might teleport because of eighter being desynced or whatever else reason.

Mh. Yes, it leaves a bad taste if they push out whats “ready” (even more if its not, as it can be seen when looking into forums) because it has been done by someone who isnt part of fixing stuff.

People like me are looking forward to fixes and are hungry for new stuff, other people are less willing to wait until stuff is fixed.

Stuff should be properly explained.
Marketing should start to learn from what has gone wrong the last year.

There have been several times - the newest ones being the summer break which isnt a thing for the majority of the world (except for summer break in school!) so it needed to be explained and before that, why exactly the first pve-c servers have been turned into pvp.
Why is it players who have to explain stuff to each other?
Where is the reason to have someone who stands between the company and the players if that person wont properly explain stuff?

If someone from Funcom would actually explain certain things…
Instead its players who explain stuff to each other.
It’s been other players who found out about norway and july.
It’s been other players who found out that gportal had literally zero capacity forcing you to decide wether pve-c players should be allowed to play pve-c or allowing more pvp players to join official servers.
And you? You just said pve-c is being deleted. Only after a huge rage (including myself having been super salty) you said there will be new pve-c servers.

There have been enough examples of with how much passion people burn and try to incinerate the forums…
I am sorry for kind of insulting you guys, but I really think this stuff creates so many unnecessary problems…

No, most players expected to buy a complete and stable game by paying full price for it. Is it naive to think so? If Funcom does not have the ability to fix the game in a few weeks and still insisted on investing in other platforms, this developer prioritized money to the detriment of consumer satisfaction and transparency.

Ah, now it’s all a matter for the player to wait and fuel hopes for this vague and uncertain future. It remains to be seen what is the validity period for those same hopes to remain alive and if Funcom has a reliable reputation as to the repair of this game.

It is also important to not forget that players can also be very forgiving especially when a good patch comes out like for No Mans Sky.

NMS doesn’t compare to the success of A Realm Reborn.

But I think CE will likely see most of the issues fixed. They ought to delete any post/thread that says they aren’t dealing with the bugs. Since they obviously are.

Sometimes bugs take months, or in some rare cases years to fix. I know in my development team it took us 3 months to fix a bug involving a feature.

That is true as some bugs can be pretty stubborn to fix.

Because shutting down a player’s ability to vent his frustration is a great way to foster good will among your player base. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

If Funcom wants to see less griping about fixes they could start by one simple step:
Someone from FC (someone on the dev team, not a community manager on the forum) needs to come to this forum and say “We screwed up. We are Sorry. We are going to fix it.”

That alone would go a long way to assuaging the anger, buy them some good will, and make the players willing to be more patient.


The anger is a cultural bias against corporations. There’s no way to appease them. Best thing to do is just ban them and take only constructive bug reports. Discard the rest.

Here’s how to fix the real issue:

  1. Ban the Malcontents.
  2. Drop the Official Servers.
  3. Release the new Modloader system.

They’ll have a 50/50 review on Steam for a month and then jump up to 70-80% once the whiners get bored, then they could drop another DLC and make bank.

Wow. Just… wow.
I honestly can’t decide if I’m being trolled here or not.
Your suggestion sounds like a good way to lose half your customers.

And while I’m sure “cultural bias against corporations” may well be a factor in some few cases, I hardly think that accounts for the majority of complaints.

If I sell Mrs. Jones a techno-widget, then release a software update that causes the widget to stop widgeting properly, and she calls me to complain. I don’t say “Screw off, I’m on vacation and will look into it in my own good time.” Then block her number so I don’t have to listen to her complaints.
I say “Very sorry Mrs Jones, I will make it right.” It’s just good business.

It’s not “anti-corporation” and it’s not “whining” to expect a product you paid for to perform properly.

Sadly, I actually think you are right in a way. Following your model would turn this forum into a perfect little echo chamber of fanboys and FC would probably be just fine in the end, with fewer players, but less headache.


You’re best off ignoring Taemien, just a forum warrior that types WAY too much.


I don`t think they are a form warrior, as to me calling them that is a silly way to discredit someone.

at first i admit i was kinda worried when i saw it starting with “let me tell you a tale” but actually i enjoyed this tale, and it’s good to remind players that we don’t go in caves anymore (or at least i don’t, and you nuria probably too).
That part of the exiled lands adventures has kind of disapeared from the game with all these “improvements” as we might call them.
But, just to take the defence of other players complaining about fish traps and stuff, it’s also true that at this “stone age” :wink: you describe nuria , oil was not so greatly needed for insulated wood… Ichor on the other hand was important but the drop rate was ok, you just had to make a specific ichors/ silk run for this very purpose (which was great imo)
so now with the new cost of insulated wood, fishes are much needed and if i count on seeds for that matter, i wish me good luck and good patience then ! So with fish traps still bugged (i’m glad i play in SP now) i can def understand why so many players are complaining.

And i also agree with you nuria about that noise around the vaccation in Norway. this was not needed and was not constructive at all.
Some old issues are really bothering me in conan exiles, but a worker has the right to go on vacation at some point. This must NOT be discussed

True. But some might need a reminder how the devs pushed out hotfixes at like 3am in norway. And it seems they had that cruel time not for weeks, but rather for months!

The only thing I was really unhappy with - as I stated above - lies in those guys never really explaining. Sure, some would still have made noises if they knew those guys probably had a 3 hour long rest per night during that time - at least those would be obvious … :zipper_mouth_face:

By the way: If you leave one spot filled with fish (i.e. the exotic, as that one has the worst fish to oil rate), those traps will continue to work. However, one should obviously encase those traps to hinder other players from breaking your traps.
However, this wont fix traps on sp.

No. Simply no.
You dont even get how many players this might piss off, do you?
You and the other private server lovers… stick to your servers.
And if those servers go down in player numbers, dont go and try to kill the game by letting devs “drop the official servers”.


i tried that too at some point after having created this thread some time ago Fish traps always empty and unfortunately it never worked for me (on a multiplayer PVE server) but it’s old infos and things might have changed i guess.
on the contrary, my fish traps DO work now on SP, that’s why i’m glad that i have switched back to SP.

Hm, ok?
As far as I have experienced it - if a trap has once been bugged, it needs to be replaced. If then the trap is being left with one slot at all times, its just fine. (Works on our few dozen traps just fine.)

When I loaded my safegame after new dlc, all my fish traps broke. :smiley:

makes sense then.
i guess my traps were already bugged. hard to be 100% sure since it’s old stuff.

i agree, although i’m more inclined to play on private servers, one thing i noticed while chating with a friend playing on officials, is that there is this unique thing only official can provide you :

-No cheat, or at least less than on private.

-it’s free

And this is by far the most important point imo:
-a lot of unknown players from every country to meet, more than on all the private servers i played on apparently (sure there will be trolls and idiots among those, but like on many others servers)

Don’t think that, people was smarter than most people often expect. But that’s not the discussion, nor the point here.

The fact is that there are fish-traps in game, and that they have to trap fishes to make oil and ichor, maybe been eaten, used in some dishes.
Especially with the new way to make insulated wood, where you need oil right now, they still more important. Fishes are or should be trapped, oil pressed out if them while you’re doing something else.

Of course there are spiders, and other creatures giving this stuff, and people will still also kill them and get them. Just fish-traps are an important add for most players. And the fish-trap bug is now plaguing many of us for long time.

So i think, we can espect a fix, and well working traps, may they be historically accurate or not. :grin:
Buy the way, it’s a fantasy game, and Conan isn’t historical nor as i know. :rofl:

Not even. Try it ingame. Filter by official and add up the number of players by sorting from highest pop to lowest. Then do the same for non-official.

When the game released, and all 300 (number of official at the time) official were full. They still only made up less than 15% of the playerbase. I’d wager they are less than that now.

As for the others replying to me, the fact that you all are going for the ad hominem approach only proves what I said correct. I’ve made suggestions in many threads on how you all can get your issues fixed. Suggestions garnered from my own personal experience in how to get bugs fixed in this game.

Instead many want to stamp their feet and act juvenile by throwing insults are dev and player alike. So I am going to repeat what I said before in several other threads, and this will in this thread at least show everyone’s true colors.

If you want this game fixed, and Truly want it fixed and to be happy playing and don’t simply want to insult devs who work for a company. Then get together. Make a thread or several (depending on the issue you want fixed). Find out what you all have in common. Because many of these bugs, many players aren’t seeing. And if we’re not seeing them, its likely Funcom doesn’t either.

This makes it hard to see fixes when all you do is stamp your feet. During EA I ran a testlive server and reported many bugs that myself and others on the server were experiencing. Almost all of those bugs were fixed before launch.

I’m not blowing smoke here. They WILL fix the bugs. But if you act like jerks in the forums, act like one of those entitled “I want to see your manager types” it slows the process down to a crawl.

So you all have a choice. Are you going to be part of the solution and swallow this ridiculous entitled principle, or still be an obstacle? Because if you’re going to be the latter. Why shouldn’t Funcom silence you? Doing so will let the constructive posts be easier to see.
