Conan Exiles hits 50K concurrent players, switches hosting to GameServers

Last week, Funcom announced that it was parting ways with PingPerfect as the dedicated host for both official and player-run Conan Exiles servers, and indeed, the official servers stopped operating over the weekend. Now it appears that GameServers.com will be picking up the slack.

Meanwhile, the survival sandbox hit 50,000 concurrent players on Steam, rolled out multiple bug-fixing and performance patches, teased the digital comic,

This is one of the very few Early Access games I’ve spent money on where I’m glad that I did so after playing the game. I’ve never been much interested in the survival genre of games but being set in Howard’s Hyborian Age sold it for me.

Since the patch on Sunday the server I play on has been running pretty smoothly. Much less lag overall and very few disconnects. This on a server with a player cap of 70 that gets pretty busy.

Yesterday’s update was very buggy, it’s more unstable clientside than it was last week now.

Still having some fun in it, though survival games aren’t my thing. My friends enjoy enough though. At this point I think they should put a bit of focus into tightening up combat and adding some PvE content, like dungeons.

The building, survival and PvP stuff is sufficient in the short term, but with just those things it’s pretty shallow.

How is this game not on Steam’s top seller list. Something fishy here.

You have to click one of the “see more” options and it’ll be at the top of the list for both Top Sellers and Global Top Sellers.

Not sure why it isn’t showing up in the actual tab on the front page though… especially when it’s beating out the other games.

And somehow RUST is even there. Dafuq?

The frontpage Top Sellers list was changed recently to be localised to country and also to not always show games you own.

It’s the dongs.

Don’t underestimate the PR power of those dong sliders, that it got it all sorts of mainstream gaming attention and YouTube clickbait.

Don’t forget about their wanting to add castration to the game! Haha.
I rather like this game. In fast I had a dream last night that I couldn’t find anywhere to put down my bedroll as I was being chased by a crocodile. Gah.

Yeah, a couple nights ago I kept dreaming that I was in game and starving to death. I kept waking up abruptly, realizing I wasn’t actually playing, going back to sleep and having the same dream all over again.

The game already has slave trading. Castration seems kinda tame.

It’s a nice start, but the game is in a honeymoon hype stage right not. Once the novelty of boob and dong sliders wear off, we’re going to see a lot of people realizing it’s just another crafting survival game, and the numbers will drop off. If the game settles into the 35k (as a consistent daily peak) range, they’ve got a genuine hit; but if it dops lower than that the game will just be part of the pack.

“CONAN EXILES HIS 50K CONCURRENT PLAYERS”

Reader

Every player has been exiled by the time they start the game. I don’t see the problem here. ;)

Ohh I thought it was a typo “the survival sandbox hit 50,000 concurrent players on Steam” oops ^^

Reader

It probably is a typo. I was just semi-kidding that the typo could be made to work for the theme anyway. :)

Of course the $64,000 question: will GameServers.com be able to handle the influx/bombardment?
