Heyaa! Been watching some nostalgic rust videos and I’ve had so many laughs, yet it saddens my heart as soon as I stop remembering and start up rust to play again… just to see it dumbed down, less creative and the community on the modded side is truly dying. People are genuinly BORED with rust these days, and the main reason most people still play is because they either hope or bad habits. Or both…
Why does the Facepunch team even come up with ideas if they remove them another month later? Do they play the game? No. They’re purely experimenting with what they think vanilla should be.
I miss the half blocks. They made building so much more unique and creative. I could come up with new designs on the go, making every next base I built more effective.
I miss the half stairs. They made it possible to design both inside and outside the base. They made it possible for half floors, addin COMPLEXITY to the game.
I miss the cupboards not fucking everybody up, it added to raid difficulty. Now: However people build their base, people get ONE cupboard, and then tower up to the roof.
I miss the pumpjacks. They FINALLY made the game less grindy, and clan strategies became very efficient. Large bases, large compounds. Each unique and with a purpose.
I miss the mining quarries. Nobody use them any more.
I miss looking out on what I built and feeling proud with a sense of achievement.
I miss the snow biome, that also added SO MUCH to the game. Different parts of the map required different tactics to specialize in.
I miss the raid houses filled with beds making raids last longer.
I miss the large scale wars. I miss the massive pvp side of rust.
I miss creativity, uniqueness, variation in the cycles where anything could happen.
I miss the race of resource piling, enabling massive ammounts of rockets and c4 that WAS balanced with how big the bases got.
I miss the bolt bullet drop, that made that gun actually skillful. I miss HV bullets making difference.
I miss the PILLARS having a bloody use. The process of building a sturdy building. Being able to once more, build with creativity.
I’m not going to ask why this has happened. It’s simply Gary’s law. We are players of his game, so we should play his game he thinks.
Yes, we WAS playing it. Now the large populated modded clan war servers are virtually dead, only a handful has survived this.
All around people are trying to start up new servers, but nobody joins them. So people are going from server to server, never getting satisfied.
Instead, there are battlefield servers basically turning the game into a round of counter-strike requiring nothing but boring calculations and good aim and no team play.
No plans for the next wipe, no nothing.
I PLEAD: Please make us CHOOSE how we want to play the game! How hard is it to implement a true/false value to everything I’ve written so far?
I’ve been gaming for over two decades and nothing comes close to how much fun I’ve had in this game together with the community that grew out of it.
But right now, Rust only feels like a shadow of its former glory. Nothing feels fun anymore, because whatever change they bring in now, isn’t even CLOSE to what many of us enjoyed.
Why?!?! I can’t for the love of this game understand this! This is a SANDBOX survival, and on one end of the sandbox - large clans made pacts to survive together.
Downing bases for loot wasn’t even the objective, it was a matter of POWER and HONOR of the clan!
This game is getting dumbed down by each update - and I understand why. Because Facepunch is completely screws with the majority of their playerbase, the ones that doesn’t want to play on vanilla servers.
Nor official servers without admins/moderators to take care of the community. How can they abuse their artistic creation in a way like this? They should rename the name to GRIND INFINITY. Are we even allowed to have any spare time for our real life in this little game of yours, Gary?
I just cannot understand… I mean Gary is a fundamentally a modder himself, how can he not get this? He must be so drunk with power because this is sick! I guess he sees all this shit as some sort of success. “Money talks” or something.
The worst part is that there aren’t even any matching games to go on to - they’re not made by semi-indie devs. All games today lack creativity in the name of monetarian sacrifice.
Game production companies have pretty much bought up every good titles ever made and tranformed it into micro-transaction bullshit that doesn’t even contain what a full version game should.
I get that it’s and alpha… but not only that. It is the very definition of cultural murder and it’s not even because of money this time! It’s “just because”. No explanations. Just changes for the worse.
The only good thing made ever since they started doing the 2-week update is the perfomance optimizations, making the game more playable without crashes. And some entities like the shelves and what nots… that’s about it.
How fun can Rust possibly be when there’s nobody else playing anymore. Because that is what will happen by the time this game goes live. People will have been fed up with all the bullshit, re-evaluating their ammount of fun/played hour and just drop it.
I can’t be the only one feeling like this, can I?
To get ontopic again, I’ll pass on the ball to you. What do you miss?
I miss gaming being fun. If this is how it’s gonna be, I wish I never played rust because it has made every other game feel like shit. And now also rust.
