Rust is dead to me now, and I think dead to many, many players who have just moved on. We loved the game when it first started, but the daily/hourly hassle of contending with cheaters has utterly destroyed it, and any chance of enjoying it.
There is a special place in hell for those people.
My server will shutdown at month end, when the subscription runs out. Thank God! What a nightmare. All day dealing with players getting cheated, and cheaters trying do as much damage as they can before getting kicked. Then of course once you kick them, they try and get your IP or your server IP or both, and DDOS the crap out of you. There seems to be a bottomless pit of scumbags on the internet. Psychopaths who get joy not from gaming, but from stopping others from gaming. Still no idea why that is fun for anyone, but it is what it is.
I choose to not let them aggravate me any more. Rust has honestly been one big nightmare and I’ve had enough. Buh bye Rust, and thanks for the one or two pure days of fun play I got before you let all the cheaters in. =)
PS Garry… recommend you just abandon this project… by the time you have anything even remotely complete (Say in 2018ish) no one will be there waiting to play it.
