  1. Here's the full summary of updates we've introduced to our community & servers during the summer of 2019! Discord Rewards went live, and you love them! [2019-07-31] In order to stimulate community engagement we've given players an incentive to join our Discord. The reward can be claimed upon following the instructions after entering the command below in chat. Players who link their account receive some RP and a mystery item as well as being granted the @Rust | 2X Vanilla+ role in Discord! Making space for the new Giant Excavator pit [2019-08-01] Map size increased from 3500 to 4050 Facepunch changed the way the procedural maps generated which made maps smaller than 3500 in size lose monuments. We looked at some seeds for 3500 and even that looked really tight with little space to build on, so we bumped up the size quite a bit to allow for the best experience. Tweaks! [2019-08-01] Tool Cupboard stacks 2X again Caves are no longer excluded from griefing rules Voting Rewards went live, and we're smashing it! [2019-08-05] We all know our server is the one and only at making monthly wipes great. So now we want other's to know as well! We've listed the server on voting sites and allowed the community to vote for rewards. Players who vote receive some RP and a gift. It's super simple to vote, you can do it here. Results (1 week of votes) After about a week of you guys voting, we're already smashing it! Our server is #1 (Page 1) on TrackyServer.com with 122 votes. Our server is #46 (Page 2) on Rust-Servers with 151 votes. Thank you all for the votes! Let's keep this up and we'll have a smashing wipe in September as well! Updates to the new NoobProtection system [2019-08-15] A few days into the august forced wipe we introduced a new system we call NoobProtection. This is a system that will allow players who join the first time on the wipe to be protected from only PVP (that means not PVE, animals will still hurt them) for 2 hours. During that time the protected player may not damage, loot or kill any other player - likewise they can't be hurt by other players. The idea behind this is that new players will be able to get a peaceful start and make a small base before getting wiped off the server potentially hurting the overall population. Note: The protection is fully optional and for those who think they're fine without can simply opt out immediately by using the command /np end We noticed some new players started using it a bit differently than it was meant to, so I've further developed the system to restrict a protected player from abusing it. NoobProtection players can no longer loot recycler. We've had instances of protected players stealing items from other recycling players. This is why we can't have nice things and its why it will now be blocked. NoobProtection players can not equip and use high tier weapons Basically only bows and spears are allowed, however they may still store weapons in their inventory. Penalty for damaging other players while being protected has been increased to 30 minutes. This means any protected player will lose their protection almost instantly when trying to hurt other players. NoobProtection players will now have an orange text above their head saying "NoobProtection" So that you no longer need to waste your ammo on supposedly hostile nakeds. That's all for this time, there is more to come really soon!
  2. Updated for July Wipe, minor edit: Raidbases/Caves/Quarries are excluded from rule §2.1 to §2.3
  3. Updated rules 2019-06-06, disallowed alliances. Fixed some typos. The general content is the same.
  4. The forced wipe is for all servers by Facepunch Team due to the monthly Rust client & server update. We don't know the exact time for the wipe as it is depending on when the FP Devs are done, it can be anything from early morning to almost midnight. What is wiped? Everything! Map wipe Blueprint wipe New map seed
  5. Updated rules 2019-04-04, particularly reworked group limit rules to make enforcing more clean cut. General clarification on other rules. As always, have any doubts - just contact @Rust Staff ?
  6. Hello community, It's been a while since I've posted an update here, been a busy month! However now it's time to let you guys in on where we are and what's going on with our server and community. Steadily we're building a larger Staff team, and it should soon show result. New Staff members on trial! Default Welcome Default who will be joining us from today starting as a trial moderator. He has an extensive background with running servers, communites as well as developing plugins. I'm sure he will be a great fit to our team and contribute with his experience. XioNaYa* Welcome XioNaYa* who will be joining us from today starting as a trial chat moderator. He's been a long time loyal player for several wipes and know very well how we run things and has shown interest to help out with keeping the chat moderated. Server crashing Due to the somewhat instable update it seems that some servers experience sudden crashing. This happened to us today 2019-02-12 around 11:04 CET. It led to a restart with a slight rollback. Affected players have been refunded and taken care of. The Facepunch team has now also released fixes for this as can be seen in these tweets. Happening since January wipe Map Size back to 3500 from 3200 due to popular demand Max Population stays at 200 @Samsie & @The Locksmith resigned from Chat Moderation. @arichi formally resigns from Rust Moderation and will be a backup Discord moderator (Global Moderator), since he is no longer actively playing Rust. Big thanks to all of them for their great effort in helping out. We let the community vote:And have revised our rules, it is now more vanilla - you can wall in quarries as much as you like to. However, monuments will still be disallowed (for obvious reasons). Discord Rust category now features an extensive Frequently Asked Questions channel to keep new and illiterate, uh needing players of our community That's all for this months update! See you in-game
  7. Updated rules 2019-02-07, took feedback in account in the poll we had last wipe about walling quarries. It is now allowed again.
  8. Welcome fighter.3 nice to have you here! Rust is a great place to practice your ability to not give up. Get back up and get revenge ?
  9. Deleted 2 fake accounts who voted No (from same IP adress), they now show up as Guest in vote list but their vote is not counted. User who did it has been temporary banned from the site.
  10. You wanted a vote for this, so here it is!

  14. Hello MrGlad! Welcome to our community and our Rust server. I'm sure you will enjoy it here, if there is anything that doesn't work out for you feel free to reach out! We take care of our people here :) Enjoy your stay!

  17. Join our Staff team! We're now looking for Moderators for Rust! It's about time for us to consider opening up for another member in the Staff team. Me and @arichi have barely been able to keep up the past wipes. There's been a lot to do, as well as griefing to take care of. This wipe is the first time we've needed to go as far as to IP ban 2 players permanently. Good work I'd say, but I'm sure we've missed some things, and that is not how we want it. How am I as a player affected by this? We make sure our servers are staffed so that rules are enforced and the well being on our Rust servers are kept high quality. If anything, this should increase the good experience for the players on our servers. Do staff members get compensated/paid? No, not yet at least. A moderator position is purely voluntary, you do not get any compensation as of now. Later down the road we may start with some compensation if you do a really good job. This is also highly depending on how much support the servers get by donations. Servers have expensive bills and covering them is the main priority. How onboarding of a new Moderator is done We care a lot about quality and we will make sure any new staff members will understand our standard. We've outlinted a process that will allow for the responsibility to be given at a managed rate. Week 0: You get selected by us to start a trial position. Week 1-2: You work as a Trial Chat Moderator Week 3: You get promoted to Chat Moderator / Or you can get rejected. You may stay as Chat Moderator for as long as you want. Week 4: You can start as Trial Moderator Week 6: You get promoted to Moderator / Or need to stay longer on trial until experienced enough General Requirements Good communication skills, written or spoken Got lots of time to spare to go into Rust Mature and capable of taking responsibilities seriously Able to take criticism and feedback from the rest of the team Preferably experienced with Moderator duties from before Apply for Moderator Have any questions? Feel free to reply, PM/DM me here on the site or Discord.
