It’s Conan, RolePlay gamers got their updates, hardcore PVP-ers won’t visit this forum that quick while RolePlayGamers do because the scene should be more fluent and work better because of de audience and for Conan this is promo.
Choices of these devs are clear to me.
Mounts update was for RP gamers in general, they have their movement and downgraded PVP skills and focussing what is not important in terms of general gameplay of checking their own updates en playing their own game (only for stream, which is not really real gameplay but more of a show off).
People are hyped atm beause of the mounts, will take some time again when you realize this game is throwing your time and energy away when a new concept patch will released on live, happening entire lifetime of this game, but devs still see money and no reason to change internal strategy, only when it’s to late (already to late, stitching wounds atm for example the mounts update, their focus was bigger on mounts instead of making this game more stable first).
In time you gamers will see you are just an experiment and your time that you spend building something up, they will throw it away like it’s nothing and you are the testcase and don’t listing to you unless they have a reason (fixing).
Yeah, hate me being realistiq (most of the time).
Your timeframe at the moment:
Conan got many people back, in my opinion short terms.
Most PVP players before this update like myself tested the new patch and made my conclusion in just 5 minutes with so many bugs etc. movement that is CORE BUSINESS, all the months work is just almost for nothing. Can continue in details but it’s not fun anymore.
Accept that this game is not a game, but a concept game while changing every update you get a new game back with new and old bugs (was fixed, but back again in the new patch, great).
I don’t play anymore, been like almost 30 days. Keep tracking what has been put on the forums and I see history repeats itself and in this case you will stay outside in the rain later on.
Trying to find reasons to come back to this game again because I loved this game so much, but I accept that Conan for me will not be “The Conan” anymore.
Best luck in 2020!
