I’d like to get an idea of what Conan is to different people. There is no right or wrong answers. And i’d prefer to keep debating to a minimum, as this is a way for people to express how the game has affected them, no matter how minor or major.
For me Conan is a pick up game of basketball. I have a love for basketball (i am 6’5" in RL) and am generally above avergae (or was, age is MFer.) When i started this game, i really never liked playing online. I was a solo campaign guy, MG5, GoW, Some Skyrum and GTA. Games where i could escape and relax with. Then came Conan. I started on a PVE, 15 minutes on there, and nope wasn’t for me. I gave PVE-C a chance. 1 week, but the Borg cubes started destroying the scenery. So i ventured to PvP officials. About 3 days in, met a guy that was learning the ins and outs as i was. He was from Ark. We kind of gelled like Pippen and Jordan. My first teammate on the courts!!! We built, and found another guy. Wow, i actually like these guys i don’t know Then we got offline raided. But the baller in me said nope, i was going to retaliate for my teammates. Met up with the Alpha. Got into a war as there ally. Merged. More teammates. Some quit the game. Raided a clan that was trying to inside us. Kicked them off server. Got into another war. Insider clan returned, but no hard feelings. More of my clan quit. Merged with the insiders. And now i have been holding down court until recently (basically 25 plus in game years of this dynasty). This game has been a visit to the past for me. I can’t play basketball anymore (severe back and neck injuries from playing prevent that now). But i still get to ball with my pick up team and hold the court. Thanks, Funcom. You let me ball again!!!
