I purchased Conan Exiles this morning. Played for about an hour. Maybe it’s because I am familiar with the game world (as opposed to dinos with lasers) but so far I prefer it over ARK. Although I will admit the game is very similar to ARK right now.
I might be interested in renting a server for Strats use. If you buy the Barbarian Edition there’s a nice incentive of 25% discount if you rent from Funcom’s preferred host.
Please post in this thread if you would be interested in playing on a Strats official Conan Exiles server. Right now I am uncertain if I would select PvE or PvP. I would like to research the benefits of PvE. It might be possible that NPCs will attack your base.
