Hey guys, just wanted to share my Rust experience thus far.
I’ve played the game for a week now, and I think i’m done until it’s in a more finished state and/or they fix the griefing in this game.
As it stands right now this is a PVP FPS game with some wooden huts. Not at all what it was originally, nor what I thought it was when I plunked down the cash. I want a survival game.
This game is full of KOS players, and people who abuse their capability to grief at the expense of other people’s fun. It’s like a form of bullying, yet it’s okay… and there are no consequences built into this game for doing so and it seems encouraged.
I have spent days building a house, securing it, only to lose it all the next day to a griefer. Every single player (save a couple) have shot me on sight, even if i’m naked holding a rock.
This playerbase is rancid, and until that changes i’m done; and I know i’m not alone.
edit: The most frustrating part is this game has SO much potential, and is far and away the best survival game out there – except when you add in all the other KOS kiddies who have every piece of equipment in the game… kinda sucks the fun out of it.
