We understand the fustration from players.
My suggestion is open the idea on developing the server host option for players to host their own game of Play Rust. While they are hosting the server, they should have the ability to assign moderator and ban people.
This will also give them the freedom to choose server host that offer DDOS protection.
When they host the server, it should be listed on PlayRust.com server list. Once it rolling, we should be able to see sharp turn around for population to buy the game and enjoy it. In Medieval, lords of the castle have to maintain order throughout the land. The order to prevent DDoS is give server owner ability to find a hosting service that protect from such invasion.
Once its developes, we can count on Garry to continue working on server update.
