Rust is a fantastic game and being able to play with friends makes it so much more fun. But with no grouping system when we die we spawn in middle of nowhere and then cannot play together. Maybe in new patch make it so you can respawn next to your party member.
They’re never going to add that.
They have stated before they are not going to add this sort of feature. If you want to play with friends you need to learn the map. It takes some effort, but is far from impossible
just get a house and put sleeping bags next to eachother?
Simple use skype to chat with your friends.
