In case anyone wants the other side of the story:
Bankai and his two buddies were built up in Next Valley. That’s where I was planning to build, so I go over there, and of course they all decide to fight in a mob, because, well…it’s Rust. After a few times at it, I’m finally able to get a little 2 story tower up to defend in and Bolt Action them. They get frustrated and put up a 3x3 wall to block my line of fire to their base, which I found pretty amusing. So, with /remove available, to ALL players, I pick up my shit and go, with a farewell message along the lines of: “Farewell kiddies, I’ll be back tomorrow. Get nice and fattened up for me.”
So, the next day, we’re roaming around causing havoc, because, well…it’s a PvP with Kevlar + M4 starters (who takes that seriously?). We see Bankai and his friends coming up on the kill messages a few times, so I say to the team “Oh! Those kids, let’s go troll them again.” Let’s face it…everyone loves trolling on Rust; be it a little, or a lot. We head over and do some damage. They retreat and one of the players blows into the base with his own C4. (They can say what they want, it’s conjecture in any case, because you guys weren’t there.) After doing a raid on their stash, one of the players says, “Hey, guys, I’m going to lay down a sleeping bag where they had theirs and suicide in later.”
Let me explain a few things that will help:
Our server has no backpack drops on death, unless killed by an animal. Our server also has, well, had I should say, a TPA plugin. (It was found to cause lag, so was removed just today.)
Continuing, our buddy suicides in, finds that it’s owners are out being bandits, and says, “Guys! TP to me quick!” So, we come in and they got “rekt” again. This leads them to believe that I had used my admin powers to get in their base, and, well, you get the rest.
During this time they tell us over mic that they don’t care, because Andy already gave them everything back. Now, Andy, of course, is a sweetheart, and probably heard their story, and was feeling bad, so he gave them a bunch of stuff to appease them, and let them continue playing. But, I’m not gonna lie, that ticked me off a bit, because it took some time, C4, and ingenuity to do the damage we did. Well…oh, well.
Kung.fu, server owner comes on, who was with us during the initial raid, and I tell him that Andy gave them all their stuff back plus 2000 planks (that’s their claim). They also claimed to have built a new base with it. Kung.fu, also being a nice guy, gave the player that used his C4 some satchels back to compensate and be fair. He also goes to check out the base that got raided and sees that it’s been vacated. So, he tears it down. The guy cries incessantly to kung.fu, was disrespectful and eventually got a ban.
So, that’s my side of the story. Believe what you may. As I said before, the facts rest in the past, and both sides can tell you their story; the rest is conjecture.
On a side note, we capped out the 100 slot server today, and still maintain a steady population of at least 30 players during normal hours. Are those 15 you claim to have removed from our community missed? Maybe. Some of them probably built up some friendships on the server with players. Ultimately, though, it’s a server that someone who is NOT you, paid for. It’s open to the public, but…and I’m sure you’ve heard this before, “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.” If a player doesn’t feel this is the right server for them, they also have the right to leave and find another community. I think anyone who’s been an admin for any game server anywhere can agree: complaining, and disrespect get you nowhere, fast.
ok thx bye!
