Thanks again for the response, Jens.
I agree with you that a lot of the chatter I hear from people that like this genre (Conan), are thinking this to be AoC 2. I think some of us already see the writing on the wall, that "survival" games, are the "New" MMO. That said, there are a lot of them out there at this point and some of these (what we see as) small things, could really set Exiles apart.
I only have one more request from you and the dev team. Some kind of regular official response. Things have been so quiet from you guys until this thread, aside from your screenshots on reddit, etc. Even the small team at 7 Days to Die gives a weekly blog from the lead developer of everything he is, was, or will be working on. Until we see and hear things from you guys, our brains will imagine great things, in hopes that they will be there.
