Conan Exiles’ Joel Bylos talks about butt sliders and blunders

If you’re looking for candid and enthusiastic answers to burning questions to all things Conan Exiles, you can do no better than hit up Creative Director Joel Bylos with your queries. Bylos tackled another Q&A session on Reddit, talking about everything from butt sliders to the team’s biggest blunder on the project so far (which, if you’re curious, was a failure to clearly define certain features that later required more fixes).

Bylos said that combat and artificial intelligence has been the greatest challenge of development so far: “A lot of the polish needed to make a combat system ‘feel’ right is missing, but also much of the depth that makes combat interesting. It takes a lot of iterating to nail that stuff.”

He did say that he was looking forward to the climbing skill, thrall settlements, and the sorcery system in future updates. Bylos confirmed that hitboxes are in development but declined to give specifics about how this will work in the combat revamp.

Meanwhile, the latest build on Conan Exile’s testlive server is dealing with several more exploits and beefing up character feats to include more “placeables.”

The title kinda sounds like a bad pickup line at first: “Heeeeyyyy baybuh, slide yer butt on over here, why don’cha?”

Or maybe I’ve just spent time in some really awful bars? :-)

They’ve lost around 90% of their players from their first few weeks’ peak. I don’t see their being able to recover adequately at this point and given the poor state of what I saw with their SW reboot, just ugh…

Does anyone force you to repeat the same thing on each Conan Exiles news? That’s annoying…

Silly replies for the win? What I mean is hyperbolic much George? I’m sure no one is forcing Ceder to post their opinion and no it’s not annoying. Your post is annoying though in my opinion. Since what you’re basically alluding to is that Ceder shouldn’t post their opinion of what they’re observing. On a website that exists to talk about mmos no less. (stares off into space)…

You still are missing the point of my reply to your pointless reply to Ceder. Carry on though. Btw I’m often amused by the concept that being a “white knight” is supposed to be an insult.

That said, I’m not sure why it’s white knighting (whatever that is) to point out that you’re doing exactly what you claim Ceder is doing.

Pattern not found. Well, I tried. Btw, it’s not about allowing or not others to post their finding. But when you write exactly the same thing in almost every news about a game, well, you are annoying *IN MY PERSONAL OPINION THAT I SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO POST*. And internet devil’s advocates are annoying too *IN MY PERSONAL OPINION THAT I SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO POST* . Bye.

It’s called viral marketing.

I guess that means they are actively working on improved combat? If so splendid! It would be a blast.
