Rust Wont Start. Need Help Quick.

Hello guys, i have a HP laptop and i have played League Of Legends and other games with high quality settings and it has sometimes lagged, but now my friend told me about this game RUST. I got the files from my friend and now every time when i try to go play it just stops at Facepunch logo and stays there a lot of time. I have tried everything but it is still not working. So could you please help me?

Validate the game files in steam and let it update. Try playing then.

I think this is your issue

-oh, never mind, I don’t support pirates-

You have to install the game through steam retard. It’s not freeware that you can share with your friends.
