Why are people surprised when they put a call out to people to come and join their low pop servers and then when people do, these same people immediately start raiding these new starts in full kev, m4’s, c4 etc, when they only have bows and/or maybe 1 pistol amongst them, that these new people then leave the server?
I love Rust, and have no problem being raided to oblivion (more so if it also features a cool firefight), but i wonder if the people doing this to new start groups realise that in the end, they will have no one left to raid/kill, except themselves. Our group of 5 joined a server (with a pop of about 10 before we joined) that had put a call out to new players, and after maybe 2 hours of trying to get setup, got rammed by 5 fully kitted guys who blew holes all through our half built house and camped there killing us for about 30 minutes. Not surprisingly we all bailed and now have a new server we call home. My point is, what is the point of all that gear if your server ends up being just your group? When we get established on a server we tend to help (well at the very least not hinder) new starts so that hopefully in a a few days we’ll have some better battles, and…well…they might have some better loot that actually makes the risk/resources worth it.
Can anyone explain this phenomenon to me?
