Game update = Hard work erased?

So my question is, when the alpha version is updated for Rust will all of my metal buildings and research get erased and reset too? Please only respond if you are certain of your answer.

If it’s a bigger update and a wipe is recommended, yes.

Don’t get attached to anything in alpha. Especially alpha + addon servers. Wipes o plenty.

That pretty much sums it up, keep in mind this is still a fluid project and still in Alpha there could be updates and recommended wipes at any time.
