This is STILL going on. I am renting a server for the first time, and trying my had at the whole admin side of things. I'm having this same issue, I came here looking for some answers to my problem, but I see this has been going on since before May. Seems a bit ridiculous. Poor product, but what is one to do if you want a Conan server right. Not sure who's issue it is, G Portal or Funcom, but someone needs to address the issue.
Fix it, Fix it, Fix it.
