Important [B] This is currently on hold. We have cancelled the server for the time being due to lack of admin tools to properly implement our idea.

I wish I had fucking thought of this hahaha, Amazing idea dude. I expect it will work out well! :)
I really hope so. We were cautious as to whether to release the details now or wait until the rust team allow us to automatically change the server from PvE to PvP on the server + other options (right now its done manually each evening). Our developers are hoping for more configuration on the rcon files. However, we decided to release our plans now in order to build up our player base up for tomorrow night. (sunday evening= peak time) Looking forward to our first purge tomorrow night at 18:00 GMT :) Maybe we can have a good old Jesters vs Facepunch communtity, if they are still willing :) [video=youtube;jN87zsqqfn4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jN87zsqqfn4[/video] :) c'mon Rust Facepunch guys- represent- The Jesters are looking for a fight!
Yeah great idea, plenty time to build up defenses and resources before all hell breaks lose....... COME AT ME B I T C H E S !
come at me bro!
i get the idea put it seems so stupid that there is rules for the day that seems like it would suck. Im sorry but i give it a thumbs down.
[B]rules during the day[/B]= a chance for the newbies to get setup instead of getting instapopped by two guys with m4 + full Kevlar. The Jesters were active when there used to be only 1 rust server. We used to be 20+ guys with M4's and full Kevlar and we used to shit on all the newbies (as you can see in the below video) [video=youtube;5woJnhbSd-8]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5woJnhbSd-8[/video]. + We quickly realized the flaw in the game that totally shit on new players and would destroy activity on a server. + Hopefully our server will create an environment that lets newbies start off and prepare for an evening of chaos. + For the more experienced players: many will leave and forget our server during the day- but come 18:00 GMT- lots of the more experienced players will log on to defend their shit and create chaos in the daily purge.
[QUOTE=awwwDangit;42813414]i get the idea put it seems so stupid that there is rules for the day that seems like it would suck. Im sorry but i give it a thumbs down.[/QUOTE] Can you elaborate a little further on how this seems stupid and how it would suck? In the Jesters we've been on both sides of the story that we have been the raiders and the guys being raided... On a lot of the servers there is a KOS attitude which means a lot of people cannot get "started" in their rust experience and actually get any further thaan running around naked in the middle of nowhere. In this version you have 21 hours of peace and 3 hours of complete and utter madness when the clock hits 18:00 GMT it's a free for all, defend or attack at this point it's your choice. we are giving people time which is one of the things that is not balanced at the moment, you get Kevlar Klans running around kicking the crap out of every other person on the server
I've updated our rules, more details and Future Roadmap 3 players have been banned for hacking and wall glitching
PvP will be turned on in 3 hours. Hope the new newly settled players will be ready :)
Dumb question.. how do I connect?
some old footage from the dupe time
[QUOTE=.sQuiF;42818672]Dumb question.. how do I connect?[/QUOTE] If you can't see it in the server list, During main menu, Press F1 to bring up console, type net.connect 84.200.193.110:28030 and hit enter.
Ah, thanks. I kept typing "connect 84.200.193.110:28030".

i think i remember you parrot, which updates are you specifically waiting for? I've started playing again after a long break and the introduction of VOIP really makes this game. -- Purge update: I only caught the last 30 mins and was glad to see many new faces logging on. It was funny to see some guys logging on after the purge and asking is it over! A member suggested that maybe we should spawn one or two more airdrops during the purge which i will probably implement. It's also worth noting that for balance Jesters aren't teaming up in one massive group, we've split up into groups of 2-3 killing other Jesters. We don't want to steamroll over small groups and noobs as it won't be fun and it'll ruin their experience of the game.

Interesting.. I might log on this coming up weekend.

[QUOTE=mariusp;42825534]Make sure to add the server on our list on indiecomm.net[/QUOTE] Will do mate, cheers :)
Best Rust server. I like this!
[QUOTE=shootergamer;42826787]Best Rust server. I like this![/QUOTE] Thanks for your kind words! Hope your mate comes back lol
No shit, I had that idea also, but my idea was not a daily purge, it was a weekly purge on sunday :) I like you concept... hope your players will have much fun. :)
I got one question is this a sleeper server, And are there any clans I can join on there
[QUOTE=Hezek;42829514]I got one question is this a sleeper server, And are there any clans I can join on there[/QUOTE] Hi Hazek, Yes this is a sleeper server. This is to encourage people to log on and defend their homes. We do have us, the Jesters group to join however there are many more individuals looking to team up, we do have teamspeak facilities for small groups to use as well.
*If you look at our Future Roadmap we are trying to cater for clans and small bands of players, at the same time ensuring that none of the clans or gangs grow too large.
Do not join, they invited me and kicked me out the next day...
[QUOTE=Apricosomoso;42831497]Do not join, they invited me and kicked me out the next day...[/QUOTE] guilds clans do that all the time... if you dont seem to fit into their thing.. boot

[QUOTE=Apricosomoso;42831497]Do not join, they invited me and kicked me out the next day...[/QUOTE] Are you sure it was our server? may i ask when this was? I've been on since 6pm GMT and don't recognise your name. All people wanting to join the jesters apply here [url]http://www.jestersnc.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=85[/url] And of course i don't see your application post [editline]11th November 2013[/editline] [QUOTE=mariusp;42831830]You left the post on IndieComm.net unpublished btw[/QUOTE] Yes mate sorry about that, i was at work at the time had to close the screen lol.
