Rust in 2021 is more popular than ever. What went right?
>>
Streamers got bored of no new games, so someone planned a huge server event for popular streamers.
>>
>>202904
Agreed, but it stands up a lot more as a social game and not just a survival game with all the stuff added to the game since I last played
>>
>>202901
Probably paying big streamers to come stream their game.
>>
/vm/ server when?
>>
>>202988
this
>>
I don't like the PvP aspect too much, because I don't want to farm something for 100 hours and then have some shit-talking 16 year old with no life steal all my shit...

I see there are some PvE servers which sounds cool. But why do they have to wipe so constantly? Are there servers that don't wipe/reset every single month? (Some saying twice a month.)
>>
>buy Rust
>be forced to be retarded looking nigger with small penis

Why does life hate me so.

spanish fag here

70 of the most famous youtuber and twicher of SPAIN and SHOUTH AMERICA make a server called EGOLAND.
they are playing in TWICH in live.
all at the same time
800.000 viewers in twich for this server
>>
all the recent twitch/youtube popularity has made me interested in the game again since i havent played in years, but it's so time consuming to find a good server with a decent community (some tense trading/alliances and pvp but not annoying griefer shitters). also the base gathering rates are abysmal, need something that gives like 3x resources to be playable because spending hours hitting trees/rocks is boring as shit. does anyone who still plays regularly know of a server that's worth joining? or maybe it'd be worth it to get a /vm/ server going, not sure on how many players it'd draw though
>>
>>203181
Unfortunately, no. Even if a server owner didn't wipe himself, there's always a monthly force wipe
>>
>>203046
Bunch of autists sperging out, over who does what. Fags who are too scared to use a mic and someone thinking they're top kek le epic troll, after saying shitty le edgy reddit meme.

No fucking thanks.
>>
>>202901
Small YouTube clips of people having fun. Not showing the grind the game is and the defeat you feel when you bases is raided and destroyed for no reason
>>
>>203181
>playing rust without pvp
lol why? there's zero challenge without it
>>
Like >>204636 said, surviving in Rust is turbo easy, there's no challenge at all without the pvp. Servers are force wiped every month and most servers wipe weekly, that's just how Rust works. It's not for everyone.
Seems they're paying streamers recently to play it, today's update even says:
>Additionally, we've teamed up with Auronplay, Jacksepticeye, lilypichu, ludwig, Myth, pokimane, shroud, Sykkuno and xQc to bring you special unique drops which can only be earned by watching their channels - Learn more by clicking the Link

Meh
>>
PVPVE, base building&raiding, tech, vehicle, pub mic, no class/roles
>>
No idea what I'm doing but I just rented a 50 slot for the month, gonna make some videos with my friends (I get like 10 views a video but I love the editing) then I might drop the name in here after a week or so.

Anything you guys really like to see in a vanilla-ish server, willing to change some stuff up but wont do anything too crazy.
>>
>>205383
Roaming rideable horses and maybe minicopters, I think since stables got added by default they no longer spawn in the wild. Personally I don't mind a slight gather buff like 1.2x or something. Drop the ip anon.
>>
Getting back into this game after a few years.
How do I get item skins? Item Store has like 9 crapy things to choose from, and WorkShop doesn't seem to have a choice to download/buy from there, all I can do is view them?
>>
I just wished I had people to play this game with me, otherwise it's an exercise in sadomasochism.
>>
>>203181
I play on an official server and it's not too terrible. Pick a large server (with a large map obviously) and try to make your way as far away from the spawn area as possible. I usually find a spot in the desert with nobody around and gather resources for a small starter base and go from there. I went the last couple wipes without being fucked with too much just by staying away from monuments and not fucking with people. Managed to build a pretty big hemp farm.

/vm/ rust clan when?
>>
>>206005
I'd be cool with joining one.
>>
>>204173
Sounds like any other server to me.
>>
>>206005
If the interest is there, I could make a discord server. I think it'd be cool to play with you dudes.
>>
>>205757
I fell for this meme. I got 3 friends on and thought I was about to epicly zerg the tryhards, turns out they can easily 1v4, so I just lost 4x the loot.
>>
>>204173
Lol worst case scenario is just a normal public server. Nothing to lose
>>
>>207170
>>206307
id join one for a wipe. i've been doing solo for 2 days and it really is a grind to get anything decent
>>
Competent and dedicated dev team puts out weekly updates for years, managing to make the game more broadly appealing without killing the magic of early experimental.

This is probably the beginning of the end though.
>>
>>207287
I don't know, I'd prefer a random server, than a /vm/ server - Which will be filled to the brim, with 4chan users.

2 will be arguing about politics and economy; 4 will try and troll everyone and the rest will either be mute, or will be screaming down their mics.

I don't play Rust nor do I have any interest in playing open world survival autism simulators, but I have played multiple different games with /vm/ anons at this point and it's been pretty good. Though I don't care much for the /bant/ servers desu. If you're so adverse to meeting 4chan faggots in game then why are you here? Best case scenario you meet people you like and have fun, worst case scenario you leave and ghost anyone who tried adding you.

Streamers streamed it and people are sheep that play whatever FOTM game mr.popular streamer is playing.

Rust isn't anymore successful then among us or fall guys.

The fact this games been our for years and no one gave a shit till the popular kids starting playing is a testament to how pathetic the majority of humans are.

Chess also became more popular thanks to streamers, this has nothing to do with Chess the game itself and everything to do with 12 year olds on twitch imitating their fave streamer.

Wouldn't be surprised if rust devs are actually paying all these streamers to advertise their game.
>>
>>204636
Dude I play all three of the big survival games. Ark, Rust and Conan.
All three of these games are literally pointless if you dont have pvp, and yet, these retard faggot pve mmo skinnerbox addicts inevitably ooze their way into the community and begin to whine about pvp...
Stay in fucking WoW is all I want to tell them, because we all know theyll drop whatever theyre doing to resub to WoW the moment a new expac hits.

I really dont understand these people.. And they get infuriating.
They claim pvp'ers ruin their fun, and yet theyre the ones demanding and whining to be catered to.
JUST PLAY SINGLE PLAYER IF YOU WANT TO AVOID PVP. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE GAMES SUPPORT SINGLE PLAYER MODE!!

Anyone reading this can join. Hopefully IF we get enough people we can decide on a server to join.
If nothing happens with it then whatever.

7days is better for PvE, singleplayer, basebuilding and pretty much everything else
>>
>>207998

No, /vm/ is.
>>
>>208107
Let me guess, you lost your stuff and are salty
>>
>>208016
Also, Rust is a way more polished game with better mechanics. 7dtd just has the feeling of some FPS from 2005
>>
i've never played one of these survival autism simulators before and I am straight addicted now. Nothing better than griefing the shit out of someone. or even more exciting: making it 2 weeks into a new server, dominating and raiding regularly, then getting raided while you're offline and coming back online to find you've lost everything you worked so hard.

good times
>>
>>207965
Rust is a KOS PVP game. 7dtd is PVE (single or co-op).
>>
>>208118
>t. another rust sociopath

>>208133
I prefer 7dtd because it has much more content and freedom. Rust is a game for sociopaths, but a polished game for sociopaths.

I feel like Survival Multiplayer games like Rush and Ark need friends to play. Also you need to put in some hours and shit and for what? There's really no end goal unlike an MMO where you do it to play end game content, its just so you can get m ore powerful gear and spank low level noobies

I try Rust every now and again but just can't get into it. The original version they had was better especially for new players. It needs some sort of faction mod where the server has 2 or more factions that players join and fight against.
>>
>>202988
only if it's the largest possible map size
>>
I know it's better now, but I genuinely had more fun in the old version, I don't know why, I think the new one is too 'balanced' maybe?
>>
>>209630
It's because the game was less of a grind so you could actually have a life outside of it, also people where generally more friendly in legacy so you could have fun interactions with people instead of just pvp

I mean you can try the reddit rust lfg

if you are getting into it go on modded servers most of the mods are for admins to catch cheaters, some are heavily modded but you can find vanilla servers in modded category because its all for admins use mods. official and community are full of hackers

because you are a newfag and they don't want newfags you are obviously looking at the wrong groups on the wrong servers.

Maybe all those shit games you play could be improved with in-world challenges like npc raids or something, instead of relying on the easy route of incentivizing niglets looting your shit while you're logged off.
>>
I had a double door entrance with two doors after that. One lead to the inside of the base where all my shit was, the other, a shotgun trap and two flame turrets.

A fellow who invades my base has 2 C4s. He takes out the double doors. He has a 50% chance of getting in. He picks the trap room.

Unfortunately, he either dodged the shotgun trap or just had enough armour to tank it because he managed to get out. Thus, we were left in a stand-off. He did the whole fake goodbye thing and everything as if I couldn't check for a door camper with a camp fire. Eventually I just logged off.

i have 50 hours and it's easy.
build a 1x1 box and honeycomb the walls with stone in a hard to find place. put the toolbox and bed in it. you can pick up workbenches and research benches and put them in a storage box when not in use. then all you do is hunt nakeds with a bow and armored with a crossbow until you have guns and then you doorcamp other peoples bases with a gun. i highly recommend calling everyone you kill a fucking fagget retard shitter who sucks more dicks at this game than their mum does in real life and tbagging them after every kill for maximum comfy.
>>
>>217017
there are no 'roleplayer friendly' , 'quality of life' aspects added to this game, therefore there won't be the incentives for RP community to over-run the KOS aspect players other than the few servers with rules making it that way.

There is no reason to hoard loot in rust. Take every risk you have a chance at. It's ultimately pixels on a screen you're losing. If you do nothing they will still go away. If you don't want to get raided and lose everything, build multiple bases around the map. I do this and use it to fuck with a specific clan the entire wipe. Zergs are used to evicting one or two solo/small group bases. They don't know what the fuck to do when facing an autist with 20 sheet metal bunkers.

I see alot of ot has to do with the twitch drops. Looks like facepunch made streamer stuff and you have to go and watch the streamer for so long before you receive the streamers free drop. Only obtainable by watching. Jacksepticeye alone bring 33k viewers from YouTube to twitch just for the rust drop for like a week. So all the big streamers are getting in on it. The popularity will drop. You also have role players role playing and bringing their base kinda like the gta 5 resurgence acouple years ago. It will die down too.

I've never really been raided on official, you just gotta have a stone base and metal doors and your usually good
