Hello All, It's I, Bear. I just want to start somethings off with this blog. Firstly And Most Importantly, an explanation to what has happened with rusticles in the past week.
Salt, Lies & Deception.
Many of you have wondered why rusticles has maybe lost a few players, or why the
rusticles.info page takes you to a gay porn website.
Well. One of our staff went completely berserk at a joke and ultimately ruined our discord and forwarded the website to a porn site. Bear in mind this was because someone said he had a small dick; Ultimately we all had to pay the consequences, But we do have a new site; as you can see. We also have a new discord, so you should probably join.
Please keep in mind, that we DO NOT own rusticles.info the domain belongs to shuckeh and only shuckeh.
That's all from Bear this week,
Stay Furry ;P
Another update was released last Thursday, this wasn’t one of the more “massive” ones. Although it came with some small features that we owners do like to see. Rust dev team is currently working on to getting the flooding protection improved.
Last update did come with a few changes to skin rendering and optimizations.
What is going on, and where are all the players?
Holiday are what’s going on at the moment, steam summer sale and loads of people are doing vacations, over all rust player counts have fallen the past 30-60 days as well. I’ve noticed that even high population servers (modded) are having population problems, so it seems overall.
Changes to the servers:
First of I’d like to say that not all of these changes will be permanent, some are for testing and some are here to stay, more about this later though.
We added a forum, which could surely come in handy, as we will be setting it up as a community board and help desk. This is still not set up 100% yet, and will be formed into something that we find useful and “User friendly”.
To use the forum you would have to sign up, which currently is pretty easy to do – as we use a light weight forum plugin, that saves NO information about the user (Signing up only requires Email and a password, change username in profile after). Its only to show who posted what.
I’d like to note that any personal information shared on this forum will get you banned, not just from our site – but also from our community – which is servers/discord/steam group.
Server will be wiped every 10th day instead of 14th, this is to prevent the last 4-5 dead days of the wipe that have been for quite a while – it will also help it out with bringing more and new people. It’s sort of to get people that like 1 week wipe schedules to join as well. The server will not be changed into a 1 week wipe, lowest will be 10 days, which would fit perfectly into the “30” days in a month (Some wipes might be 9 or 12 days, this can’t be prevented). This change will be put into use from next forced wipe, which is July 6th.
Maximum levels in will be reduced, as well will the total gain from each level – as it being a 5x server, then there should not be a way to actually reach almost 10-12x gather with use of that plugin, this is a fast way for some of the bigger clans to gain really many resources fast.
Maximum levels in will be reduced, as well will the total gain from each level – as it being a 2x server, then there should not be a way to actually reach almost 5-6x gather with use of that plugin, this is a fast way for some of the bigger clans to gain really many resources fast.
Maximum levels in will be reduced, as well will the total gain from each level – as it being a 10x server, then there should not be a way to actually reach almost 20-25x gather with use of that plugin, this is a fast way for some of the bigger clans to gain really many resources fast.
There won’t be many changes for the vanilla, as we can't really do much. It’s going to be active for a while, so hopefully it will get a higher player base over time!
