I am sorry that I have to take the local issue of one single official server to FP again…However I saw no hope in finding any other better option:
The situation has gotten way out of hand.
First of all, nonetheless, I would like to thank the devs for the new updates——It allows me and my friends to actually gather and build. And we are able to make some new friends everyday. And we really love the new scenic landscape as well as the new bed respawn system. And people are gathering to fighting up against the dominating Koreans in the game (which I think the problem is kinda solved, and actually turn into somekinda daily server war.) (The high-jumping hack still haunts every player though.) We are having a much more enjoyable time thanks to the development team’s full dedication to the game. And I would like to represent every one of my friends to thank you for your effort and time.
However, this would only be a brief “peaceful” time before our nightmare comes again. Me and my team took a deeper investigation in the server. And we found the problem is even bigger than we thought:
[Long paragraphs warning]
First of all, it is the bullying issue. Now the whole server is turning up against the Koreans, it actually became a fun to enjoy.(Yeah, the bed system really got people all over the world gathered) However, the cyber-bullying part, on the other hand, is getting way more serious. And it is not only due to nationalities any more.
Here is an example[sorry it’s in Chinese(I would give a translation if requested):
Me and my team was targeted by this player and his group. Just because we killed his men in pure self-defense. They defamed us for robbing them in public chat, which in fact, they are the one keep using C4s and blowing our base up.
No matter how we clarify our cause(which is peacefully building and surviving), explain ourselves,
They will just keep coming.
But that’s only a small part of this kind of anti-social behavior:
We can’t even play without their harassment.
We have a lady from the U.S. and we had our base filled with misogynistic insults for hours. They would shout with mic with worst words you can imagine from a thug’s mouth.(e.g.s*** my d***, b****, I wanna c** on ur face) as well as other kinds of sexual harassment from them. They would humiliate our family, insults our parents, our relatives, our friends, our nationalities, 24/7 none-stop. (even when we chat properly with English among friends, they would laugh at us with that)
Clearly this is NOT acceptable in ANY situation, in ANY server or in ANY GAME. I suspect such is a violation towards human rights and more specifically, women’s rights. And we suspect this kind of sexism should not be tolerated at any degree.
[Here are the group and the guy’s profile for reference][If I have violate any policy of FP by providing them, please tell me, I will delete them at once, upon request]
[And we have this guy keep calling her as his girlfriend]
For the record: our friend left this game due to them.
In my last post, I might have not made myself clear enough in my post——I have to apologize that I’m not originated from an English-based society, and my points are probably messed up…(And a guy marked my former post as “dumb”…)
Nevertheless, the issues I mentioned here, I suppose, is not how Rust meant to be. Rivalry is a part what makes Rust special to all of us. But when it turns into completely bullying——the fun is gone.
We can withstand attacks from bandits.——But having direct verbal insults? Sexual harassment? Discrimination? And being hunted by a large group of players with no proper reasons again and again?
I guess that is just too much for me and my friends. And these kind of actions are not what the developers want to promote, are they?
In conclusion, players, especially ladies in HK official server are having a very depressing time at this very moment.
I hereby kindly request a ban on this group and these specific individuals as soon as possible for the sake of the healthiness of Rust. I reckon the action will work as a warning sign to other players who attempt to do the same as well as a signal that the official server is maintained and cared by the developers. Not to mention that this act will protect the female players in the game from being further harmed endlessly in Rust.
Once again, I have to thank both the devs and the community for their efforts and time to make Rust better and better by every per update. And I am sorry that I have to bother you once more for such kind of, perhaps trivial, local issues in an official server.
We hope you understand that we like Rust very much, and are willing to tell our friends and neighbors about it. But before such horrifying issues are solved, we cannot but hold this thought for the moment.
