I really like and dislike Rust for the same reason.
Not being bound by rules, people tend to show their true nature and when they can’t be directly punished, they will annoy/grief a lot.
This gives a ‘common enemy’ to protect yourself and your friends against.
A big fun part to it that you can recognize the more decent players, or the players with more style. (ie. not going for the easy glitches, but arranging backstab events;)
I am astounded a lot by the behaviour of online players, but in this case, I think it adds a certain gameplay element to it.
Haven’t played for a while (no idea how long, as my perception of time is non existent) and now I can see experimental branches / undeveloped main branch.
Would like to rent/buy my own server for dedicated hosting, but I am unsure wether this is actually a proper idea.
I don’t know, but I assume, it’s possible to host the server in the experimental branch.
Does this mean every new update can possibly include a wipe, therefore everything constructed on the server will be temporary?
Or, is it still viable to host a server on the undeveloped main branch?
Ie. will this branch live long enough to enjoy playing/constructing, or is it better to wait for it to get deprecated?
Or, very much possible, there is no clear indication to answer any of these answers?
I am looking for a wipeless lifespan of about 2-3 months.
