Here is my experience with this server. I have been on it since they launched it a few days ago pretty extensively. Per this forum post because they stated: 1. That it had just been wiped and it would not be wiped anytime in the foreseeable future (also stated this many times in game via chat spam) and 2. Because grieving and hacking would be dealt with immediately.
Now that being said, after three days of hard grinding they had to restart the server for the new updates from Oxide to be put on. So they do that and come back and 3 airdrops go down on consecutive days with roughly 20 people online. It was a glitch from the restart. So one guy starts complaining saying that he’s going to leave if they don’t fully reset the server due to too many people that are “going to have C4 now”. One other guy agrees with him, and based on this alone they reset the server. After all the advertising about it wasn’t going to happen. Needless to say over the next couple hours many regular players logged in and were pissed (verified through global chat)and never came back.
Now onto how they deal with hacking here. A friend and I had a guy show up to our house using an obvious aimbot. The guy would face away from us, and 180 snap back to us and kill us the instant we opened a door, or popped up the open staircase at the top of the house we had started building. He camped us like this for roughly two hours. Until we said screw it and logged off. Come back the next day and the guy had grief built all around our house locking us inside. I put in a ticket with this guy’s name on it and what he had done. I got a response asking if the ticket was serious the next day?? The guy logs back on later that night and the instant he got on I started PM’ing a mod telling them hey this is the guy from the ticket. He hacks hard, please watch him. He comes and finds me later and instant headshots me in the dark. I spawn at my base and the guy comes flying over that way, and instant head shots me again, in the dark. Nothing happened to the guy. Also, same day, had a guy killing me from outside my house (through the walls) while I was standing dead in the center of it. I started blowing up about it in global chat and was told I would need proof to get anything done. Then told I needed to record my play sessions. I must have missed that bullet point in their advertisement above.
The same mod was who I dealt with for all of this and his name was GTFO(something). His final words to me were that I wasn’t being helped because of my attitude. Which in the end didn’t exist to anyone until after everything I typed above happened, and nothing was done about it. When you tell me I need to provide proof of hacking, disregard my ticket, and let people continue to grief I daresay I’m not going to be too pleased about that. Maybe some of you are better men than I. Anyway this is my experience on this server. Needless to say I won’t be back on it.
In the end the only thing I’ve seen that isn’t falsely advertised by these people is that they have zero lag. To their credit it is the smoothest server I’ve seen, but it doesn’t really mean much if you get your items wiped every few days and hackers can grief you endlessly with impunity.
