This goes to all the people complaining about the game being difficult as a lone wolf.
In an ideal world survival would be easy, resources would be plentiful and war would be non-existant, however this is not an ideal world, this is rust as such conflict is inevitable, resources are both limited and gathering them is risky whilst also time consuming.
Rust was by no means meant to be an easy environment to survive in, that doesn’t mean you cannot survive it though. In order to be successful you must be strategic, organized and make use of that brain that you were born with.
My play style is also lone wolf this is not because I am unsociable I just know that me, myself, as a player I’m pretty good at what I do. If you are not good at what you do then did you ever consider that maybe, just maybe the lone wolf play style is not best suited to you as a player and to put simply maybe you just suck at SURVIVING all together, after all this is the purpose of the game to survive by any means possible and that might just be having some sort of companionship with other players.
To put it short if you can’t handle the game as a lone wolf and playing as a group does not meet your needs then consider playing a different game, this game is not aimed at lone wolves it is aimed at survivors if you fail to survive then you are not a survivor, it is not fair on every person to dumb down the game because then the game just becomes terrible, in fact at that point the game does not become a survival sandbox game the game then becomes child’s play and everything is spoon fed to you.
This game does not cater more to a specific group, it caters to everyone but sometimes you have to go beyond your usual protocol to survive, as a president of the united states didn’t once say, We choose to play rust, not because it is easy, but because it is hard.
