There was a patch around the time Soul Calibur VI released for Conan. I basically had stopped building and basically playing completely after our last purge, because I knew we would be dedicating time to that game, and now Red Dead Online and I hated the thought of being “stuck” playing Conan all night, every night, waiting on the purge to come.
And then, that patch broke purge meters completely.
Let me tell you, our group has not had so much fun with Conan since the pre-release, pre-purge days. We can actually play when we WANT to play. We log in, make sure all the timers are reset and thralls are fed and we just do what we want- build, explore, what have you. Not feeling like logging in to guard against purges has turned a chore back into a game and for the first time in a LONG time I actually hop in and play during non purge hours.
The reason this is in suggestions: Please, for the love of Mitra I beg you to include some way to manually trigger a purge before fixing the purge meter. Giving us control over it will let us keep this feeling, that we had during EA, that your game respects our time. Personally, I could live with the meter never coming back but I know other players like the mechanic. We don’t. And a way to manually get rid of purge meters when we want to do other things is the best compromise.
