Where's they hype for Conan Exiles? 
Seriously? 
The game looks mad good and it's by FUNCOM and I barely see any mention of it on what is "supposed" to be an mmorpg site. Instead I see Minion Masters and Wizard 101. One piece and Pokemon... christ guys. You're part of the reason the mmo's are dying. You're pandering to whoever puts enough gold in your purses. This is what's wrong with the world. Money trumps all. 
It's early and I haven't had enough coffee yet but I really expected more from you here than this.

    There's been a lot of coverage, interviews, videos, etc. Here's two.

    http://www.mmorpg.com/conan-exiles/interviews/the-inside-story-on-official-and-private-servers-1000011486

    And the live question and answer as well. You will see that in the forum area.

    Although I am looking forward to watching some RP twitch streamers play it.

     Not that it's surprising I would side with Suzie but… You really should check out the entire list of Conan exiles articles before you cry Wolf.  I'm glad others have already pointed that out to you. 

     I might however agree that we sometimes post too much news that a lot of the important stuff gets knocked off the front page very easily.  This could change in the very near future  as we make changes to our coverage.

    Try to be excellent to everyone you meet. You never know what someone else has seen or endured.

    Maybe not wanting to search and work for something and expecting everything to be handed to you because you show up is what's wrong with the world and why MMOs are dying... B)

    Hey I'm pretty critical of this site but they have done a really good job keeping us informed about Conan Exiles...they can't (well could do a better job IMO) keep the riffraff out who complain nonstop about the game on every thread though.

    There has been plenty of hype on this site.  If you want to know why more site members aren't excited, well, I quoted the reason.

    Of all the things to try to call out MMORPG about, Conan Exiles coverage can't be one of them. #fakenews

    Just to rub additional salt in the wound, there is more coverage here than there is at both IGN and Gamespot combined. So shame on them for not covering the game!!! It's left up to an MMORPG site to cover it :)

    There are 3 very good reasons this site has already given more coverage to this game than it deserves:

    1. Its a survival game... notorious for small and dwindling players base

    2. Its Funcom.... notorious for small and dwindling players base

    3. Its a Conan IP game... notorious for small and dwindling players base

    Not sure what Funcom thinks they can do with this game, but if two wrongs dont make a right, what does 3 mean? Pure gold, right guys? Guys?

    I shall never be chagrined and you're right! It is more of a survival type game. I didn't realize all the games on this site were. Oh wait.. they aren't? Shit my bad. Let's flood the front page with bullshit from two weeks ago and ignore the game that's getting launched today. Totally right. Hey ... maybe you can hype some kickstarter projects and trick people into purchasing things that will never get completed? I'm sure that will earn you a new pool. 

    So no... I didn't go back through all the posts about Conan Exiles because the main page always irritates me to no end. I'm a very important busy man, you see... I can't be expected to click two or three times to find what interests me. I expect it NAOW streamed live into my dreams. 

    I will admit I jumped the gun but I won't apologize for this, or any other, rant I may spew.

    Oh good I was wondering how long before someone came in here crying about funcom...

    Its rather strange that people like you who think a particular game gets "more attention then it deserves" always find their way to that games discussion to complain about it. If it gets to much attention in your opinion you would think the logical thing to do is ignore it...

    The national pastime with MMO players is being outraged/offended by something when they're not too busy waxing poetic about the death of the genre. ;-)

    This place gave up covering games that actually had a chance to release a long time ago. They now cater to the hype train projects that have less than 50% and in most cases less than 25% of a chance to release.

    Thgose links the provided actually hurt their argument more than it helps it. THREE 'articles' and theyre all from this month. Maybe 10 'news' stories and the oldest one was right before Christmas. Now obviously they have been hot and heavy the past few weeks because the hype train was going full speed so they sent them out on a daily basis basically.

    This game got some hype around June or July last summer. Had it been a project run by guys with a kickstarter page and 50 cents in donations it would have been wall to wall coverage of anything and everything related to it. This place would have told you the kind of toilet paper they were using.

    But its one of the last AAA studios doing it with a tried and sort of true IP behind it therefore they had to see how exciting it was.

    Also the excuse that its a survival game or not an MMO. Yeah that is a legit excuse look at the games this place has been promoting and hyping for the past two years.

    Now with ALL that being said I am probably not going to play it for various reasons I just like to point out the shenanigans and fake news and offer alternative facts.

    Posting 10-12 items the past couple weeks really isnt  hyping. They were posted BECAUSE of the hype.
