Conan Exiles - Time To Mount Up

It is time to mount your steeds and ride across the plains of the Exiled Lands. One of the most sought-after features since Early Access launch is a reality: Mounts are now available in Conan Exiles!  You can engage in mounted combat and level up your pets and thralls, so they grow more powerful the more time you spend with them.
MOUNTS
Getting a mount works the same way as getting a regular pet. You will first have to find a foal, then bring it back to a Stable to raise it. Stables work the same as Animal Pens, but are for horses only.
Like Pets/Thralls, horses will grow stronger as they level up. Raise several different horses to find one with the stats you like.
Once your foal has grown into adult horse it can be placed in the world, like a regular Thrall/Pet. To ride into the sunset like your favorite cowboy you’ll need to equip your horse with a saddle, which can be unlocked at level 20.
Saddles will have different effects on your mount:
Cavalry Saddle – Fast acceleration, maximum speed, minimum defense, minimum maneuverability Scout Saddle – Long sprinting time, medium speed, low defense, maximum maneuverability Warhorse Saddle – Slow acceleration, minimum speed, high defense, low maneuverability No matter which saddle you choose, using a horse to get anywhere is significantly faster than running on foot.
MOUNTED COMBAT
With mounts we’re also introducing mounted combat. Shoot your enemies from afar with a bow and gallop away before they know what’s going on. Grab a sword, axe or mace and swing away from the comfort of your steed.  Equip a pike or a spear and attack your enemies by stabbing at them or equip a lance and tear through your opponent’s defenses with a mighty charge.
We think mounted combat is going to add a whole new level to Conan Exiles’ PvE and PvP gameplay and we’re excited to hear what you think.
PET/THRALL LEVELING
We’re also adding a leveling system for Pets and Thralls that can follow you. Leveling a Follower grants them increased stats and special bonus Perks.
When placing a Follower, they start at level 0 with a base set of Attributes. Faction and Tier determines growth rate and base Attributes, to make sure similar pets and thralls won’t be exactly the same. You can check your Follower’s Attributes by selecting “Info” from the radial menu.
Killing enemies when a Pet or Thrall follows you will grant them experience points. Crafting, exploration and other activities will not. Pets/thralls will only gain experience points when they are following you. Pets/Thralls will gain perks as they level up, which will further enhance their capability and grant bonuses to Attributes. The more specialized the Perk, the greater the bonus.

Amazon's MMO New World Release Date.

Amazon has delayed its upcoming open-world MMO New World from August 25th to an undefined spring 2021 date.  It sounds like Amazon may be taking a more cautious approach to game development after early feedback from testers that the games weren’t quite what they hoped.
The New World team wants to add “more features and content before we share it with a wider audience,” including “plenty of middle and endgame experiences,” studio director Rich Lawrence said in a blog post that was also shared on Twitter. “We want our players to feel completely immersed in the game, and know that our studio stands for quality and lasting gameplay you can trust — and that means added time to get things where we want them before we fully release.”
Does New World require a subscription?
No, there will not be a subscription fee to play New World. You only need to make a one-time purchase—it's $40 for the standard edition—though there may be expansions or other things to spend money on in the future.
How to play in Beta
If you signed up for the beta on or before July 9th, already pre-ordered the game, or are a current alpha tester “in good standing,” you’ll be able to participate in a “first-hand look at New World” beginning on the game’s previously scheduled launch date, August 25th, according to an FAQ on the New World website.
If you get access to that first look, you’ll be able to play the game “in its current state” and for “a limited period of time,” according to Lawrence.

A&M and the SEC

Recommended Posts

Boy has the info been flowing out the past few days that A&M will be joining the SEC maybe in 2012, but for sure in the 2013 season. Well from the info that I have gotten, A&M will announce on or before 8/22 which is that date that the BOR meet. The topic isn't on the agenda yet, but they have till 72 hrs to post it, so look for that very soon. All I can say is I am finally happy that this is happening, GIGEM AGGIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Man this has been a great day and a great past few days!!!

 

To recap, Texas A&M BoR have announced a meeting for 8/22, what has happened since then:

 

Ok since then, and I am not sure about the dates but will try to be as pressies as possible.

 

Thurs. the Committee on higher education announced a meeting for Tues.

My note: They have no buisness sticking there nose in what the Texas A&M athletics does, they need to focuse on more important things.

 

Thurs. or maybe Friday morning:

The SEC announced a Prez. meeting for Sun. around 10am to vote on expansion. Also, it has come out that t.u. has hired a PR firm to start the campaign to smear Texas A&M and it is evident on the tv and tweets now.

 

Then Friday around 3pm (this is great, what a great check mate!!):

It comes out that the BoR meeting was changed from the 8/22 to Monday at 3:30pm!! The agenda was set, its item "15) Authorization for the President to Take All Actions Relating to Texas A&M University's Athletic Conference Alignment, The Texas A&M University System"

 

Also there is some stuff coming out about the Committee on higher education that they have been funded by the same PR group that t.u. has higher. Also there is no Aggies on this committee, but the head of this committee is funded by the fine folks at b.u..

 

I will post more tomorrow on the on going items before Texas A&M moves to the SEC.

I really wish SEC would of agreed to expand. That tu cable channel is going to ruin recruiting.

 

Basically they will, but they don't want to be seen as the one who raids an existing league. So what we saw on Sunday with the no vote is they are covering there ass legally and put the ball into Texas A&M's court. So that was phase 1 of several phases to go in this expansion. Monday the Texas A&M BoR voted unanimously to give Prez. Loftin the right to search for our next Conference, that's phase II. Now Texas A&M needs to get there legal stuff in order, they need to find out there exit fee and other stuff before we can move onto Phase II which will be maybe an app to the SEC. From what I hear, we will be done before Sept. 1st, but if not, then it wont happen till after this football season :cray:. We will see within the next few weeks.

TEXAS A&M NOTIFIES BIG 12 OF CONFERENCE EXPLORATION

NEWS RELEASE - August 25, 2011

 

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M University today officially notified the Big 12 Conference that it is exploring options related to the institution's athletic conference affiliation. Texas A&M also requested that the Big 12 outline the process to be followed should the university elect to withdraw from the conference.

 

athleticsFacts.jpg In the letter to Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe, Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin indicated that if the university withdraws from the conference, Texas A&M would do so in a way that complies with the Big 12's bylaws. Additionally, Texas A&M would be supportive of the Big 12's efforts to seek a new member of the conference.

 

"As I have indicated previously, we are working very deliberately to act in the best long-term interests of both Texas A&M and the State of Texas. This truly is a 100-year decision," said Loftin. "While we understand the desire of all parties to quickly reach a resolution, these are extremely complex issues that we are addressing methodically."

 

"Ultimately, we are seeking to generate greater visibility nationwide for Texas A&M and our championship-caliber student-athletes, as well as secure the necessary and stable financial resources to support our athletic and academic programs," Loftin added. "As a public university, Texas A&M owes it to the state's taxpayers to maximize our assets and generate additional revenues both now and well into the future."

A&M receives letter from Big 12 confirming mutual waivers of legal claims, taking next step toward possible SEC move

Texas A&M officials received a letter today from Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe, outlining withdrawal procedures according to the financial provisions of Big 12 bylaws and mutual waivers of legal claims.

 

The letter, received in response to A&M’s Thursday request for withdrawal procedures, should help expedite A&M’s apparent move to the Southeastern Conference.

 

In a statement released today, A&M president R. Bowen Loftin stressed that it is “not our intent to prolong our conference exploration for an extended period of time.” Sources at both A&M and the Big 12 have suggested that, because of the mutual waiver of legal claims in regard to a possible A&M move to the SEC, an announcement in regard to the school’s application for SEC membership could occur by the end of the week.

 

In Monday’s statement, Loftin said: “I certainly appreciate the discussion among the Big 12 presidents/chancellors (during Saturday’s teleconference) and the expression of their desire for Texas A&M to remain in the conference. We all agree that Texas A&M is an extremely valuable institution; thus, it is incumbent upon me, as the president of the university, to ensure that we are in a position to enhance our national visibility and future financial opportunity. While this is a complex and long-term decision, it is not our intent to prolong our conference exploration for an extended period of time.”

It was reported today that the SEC has unanimously agreed to let A&M in as the 13th barring any legal action. This was decided after Big 12 sent a letter confirming there was none. However, today it is reported that there is a legal action as the Baylor Bears are threatening to sue A&M if they leave.

Yes Gaylor is trying to sue A&M if it goes to the SEC. How pathetic they look right now, really Gaylor, Really? It was a week or so ago the B12 and the Schools said they would survive with out A&M. It dosnt matter anymore, A%M will not be in the B12 in the 2012 season and Gaylor's crap is going to bit them in the end, no one will want them after the B12 implodes.

Statement from SEC Commissioner Slive:

 

"In the 78 year history of the SEC, the conference had accepted the membership applications of only two institutions—Arkansas and South Carolina. Texas A&M is now the third. We remain optimistic that Texas A&M will be a member of the SEC and have started to look at schedules for 2012-13 involving thirteen teams.

 

"As I said over the past year or so, the SEC has had no particular interest in expansion. We were, and are, happy with twelve teams. If Texas A&M’s President, Dr. Bowen Loftin had not called me in late July, we had no plans to explore adding an institution.

 

"However, when President Loftin called we became interested. Texas A&M is an outstanding academic institution with an exceptional athletic program, passionate fans and wonderful traditions. While the SEC wasn't thinking about expansion, it was impossible not to be interested in Texas A&M. As you can see from the unanimous vote of our twelve Presidents/Chancellors, we would very much like to have Texas A&M as a member of our conference.

 

"When Texas A&M joins our conference, we don't have immediate plans for a 14th member. We aren’t thinking in terms of numbers. We think about the strength of the SEC and the attractiveness of Texas A&M as an institution."

LoL, just LoL!!!

 

 

What has just been reported and happening is so funny.

 

 

t.u. got rejected by the PAC 12, I love it, ESiPN and them made a bad bed that they cant get rid of and no one wants that crappy lhn. How do you like it now t.u. fans, oh wait, no one can see lhn anyway.

 

 

Kinda surprised that the PAC 12 wouldn't take OU and OSU, they were on the up and up and are a good school, I do understand t.u. with that crap network and having to bring tech with them, but WoW.

 

 

Today has just helped out Texas A&M to the SEC with out gaylor pushing the crap they they tried to push.

 

Oh gaylor fans, how do you like this billboard on your way to the stadium?

Its a good billboard, I tweeted it a couple days ago. I'm betting if OU and OSU were to go to Pac-12, without any mention of tu and tech, they might of had a chance, but since everyone was grouping them together, no one wants to deal with the ego of tu and LHN(I am sick of seeing the ads for it on this website). It was mentioned that the PAC12 didn't want to have rules for 15 colleges and another set of rules for tu. Was also mentioned that the whole revenue sharing was ok with tu except for anything from the LHN which made it all unequal since they are listening to NCAA about showing HS football games on it and there was one more item that NCAA said they couldn't have on it, but they were going to do it anyway.
