Hosting a Conan Exiles server (EU), all welcome!
« on: February 17, 2019, 08:27:04 AM »
Hey guys,

Despite the fact that I *think* its not a very popular genre here and most people hail from the other side of the big pod, Ill try just in case someone might be interested and would have proclaimed: By Crom! If only I would have known, dog!  :)

A mate and me are hosting a Conan Exiles server. Its EU based with a ping limit of 140 to protect pvp combat latency.
Its called Realm of Seasons and its our attempt at trying to solve a catch 22 many survival games suffer from: on the one hand you need action to keep things interesting and exciting; too little action drives people away. And on the other hand the fact of the matter is that people get attached to what they have built and do not like having to start from scratch all the time.

In order to keep the threadmill going many servers have clean wipes every now and then, but that means starting over.
We believe its more fun to have an alternate take on this and this is where the Seasons come in:
-Normal server state is called Season of Reflection and lasts 3 months. Normal rules apply (see below)
-Then comes Season of Reaving where the Avatars awaken from their slumber and the raid restrictions get lifted and the land plunges into chaos for half a month.
-After this Season of Mending arrived where players lick their wounds, rebuild their holdings and choose targets for the next Reaving. The Gods return to their slumber again until the next Reaving.

This hopefully ensures a great, albeit controlled, ruleset in normal state while incentivising all out war in Season of Reaving, perhaps like a partial wipe depending on destruction.

For players wanting a more hardcore experience we also have a War Dec feature where clans can opt to not have to wait until Reaving to wreak havoc on eachother while keeping other players out of it.

Please download and review the rules here if youre interested: (feedback is welcome!)

Its a 20 slot server at the moment.
Direct connect:

However, if pilots would need to do daily what they are capable of doing, nobody would dare to fly anymore.

Sounds cool, unfortunately I don't have Conan at the moment.  One of those games i have wish listed for the next sale but never get around to it but on my list for sure.  I'll keep this in mind.
