We're 80 or so hours into Conan Exiles (and not done yet, only level 46, just had our first purge), and the color palette alone makes me want to play this game. Wonder if a dedicated server w/ some adjusted rules could make for a fun PVE LAN game for 6-7 people.
the faction system might be good. Since solo players are automatically in a faction, and allies best interest is then in aiding/protecting them.
The pvp systems in these survival games tend to be incredibly pisspoor.
yeah, not being interested in PvP, all the ways you can specialize it seems like I could just focus on base building, resource gathering etc. and just turtle during the PVP stuff. Basically just support all the people that like the pvp and not do it myself, lol.
