I took only this one as an example as I always tend to be lengthy and become unclear
Halcyon seems to want to demonstrate that “the only right way is official servers”.
I just wanted to show that whether you play alone or rent a server has the same value. If you rent a server you’re the admin and choose how it works. Even the right to cheat, even the right to stop the server to avoid problems, like offline purges happening due to a bug.
I only play SP : I don’t want (in fact I hate, strongly), barbaric (unstructured) war in games (real life shows enough wars, everyday !) while I like contest (structured) fights (these are sports as you can play with honour). I so don’t play PvP in Conan. As I player single player mode, I can cheat, but why should I ? Playing a game is just a way to enjoy free time. Some people even like enjoying their free time to behave like bas…ds in games. That’s their way, not the only one.
Wanting to be recognized has nothing to do with Conan or even gaming. Eg : a musician who plays greatly in public will also be recognized for this. Being able to do something never means having to do it and even having the right to do it. This applies everywhere, not only in Conan, not only in gaming.
