I heard that there’s coming a remake of the Purge system.
We did not get it yet but it all sounds like the Purge is about to be made an optional thing and one can opt out of it simply by not building the treasure room and not gathering treasures.
This is a very bad idea in my opinion and I would like to have it made other way.
Just leave the existing Purge as it is, there is really not much going on in Conan, entire world is static, not moving, does not feel alive. And the Purge is the only occurrence when the world, the NPCs show to be active and come to the player.
I run my private server for over 2 years now and nobody complains about the purge. Our settings make it that it comes to every player around 2 times per week.
This filling up bar is a source of excitement, the Purge is going to come soon etc. It’s more fun because it’s inevitable.
For us every Purge is fun event, players go help each other, capture new Thralls, rare opportunity for entire server to do something together.
We have it set to maximum difficulty and I never seen a player unable to defend even solo.
We want it to stay as it is… it’s fun!
Developers could leave the old Purge - some vagabonds attacking player’s stronghold.
And add new mechanics linked with the treasure room - Stygian Army(?) coming on hard, with trebuchets, cavalry(!) and a sorcerer casting spells.
Just make it an optional, harder Purge and leave the one we know as it is.
