Started playing on official servers…Facepunch Seattle. 3 server crashes in 20 minutes. DDoS attacks or just crappy server racks? Anyone know if they’re all like this?
long story short, play community servers over official servers for a more stable experience.
the official servers are more in line with testing the current development of the game, where a lot of community servers focus on hosting a stable, playable server.
The Official servers, except for the Rustafied servers, have many more hackers on them - because there are no admins to ban hackers. So generally a bad idea to play on an official server - unless you don’t mind a hacker coming to your base and taking every piece of loot you have.
The Off. servers also often don’t get updated quickly - again no admins on them in general.
