Dangit people, some of y’all just can’t resist an exploit, can ya? Apparently an exploit with avatar tokens in Conan Exiles is causing such problems that the whole system’s been disabled while Funcom sorts it out.
“We’re aware of a current issue that some players are using to obtain and store avatar tokens in unintended ways,” Funcom writes. “This is being abused by a few players and clans to create unfair situations in some official servers. Our team is aware of these methods and are working on a fix thanks to the collaboration of our community. However, we do not have any estimate times regarding the launch of this fix. After discussing it internally over the past few days and examining the situation many of you have reported, we’ve decided that the best way to proceed until this issue is patched live is to disable Avatar summoning on all official servers, all platforms, in effect immediately.”
On Reddit, a player specifically asks about the “server reset dupe with the taking out and reapplying inventory into vaults in the last seconds before restart,” and a Funcom rep confirms that’s “exactly what [the studio] is fixing right now.” Duping gods. It’s come to this.
If all this sounds familiar, that’s because avatar summoning was disabled over a totally different exploit earlier this summer. Come on.
Incidentally, maybe think twice about exploiting in the future: Funcom promises it’s cracking down.
“We’ve also been increasing our security measures to make sure players who have been negatively impacting the game via exploits, cheats and other methods cannot keep circumventing any sanctions applied to their accounts on PC.”
