Our server gets low pop (around 20-40 players) and all of a sudden my server isn’t showing up on the modded tab or favorites anymore. I open a support ticket with Facepunch and get a very short reply from Holmzy “Servers were showing fake player counts.”
I emailed back and said this is not a possibility and it must be some sort of error and that it’s a bug if this is an automated system, and if not automated it was human error.
And then no response.
I am on a dedicated box with my own IP addresses and have had this IP for years. There has never been a Rust server on it besides the one I have.
Has any one had this issue? I want to prevent this happening again but don’t know how. I’m afraid my new IP is going to get blacklisted as well. I have my AFK kicker turned off but I dont think that would trigger it, the server ranges from 5 to 10 people at night and then 20 to 40 people at day. (well not anymore since the blacklist)
(conspiracy theory lol: If you’re not a big monetized community like Rustoria and you start gaining population does Facepunch blacklist your IP?)
