Before people get butt hurt, know that I do like rust and want them to continue to make the game better.
Ever notice that everyone is KOS on rust for the most part? Or if they arn’t they are someone who doesn’t have friends looking to “group”? Or if they arn’t they just don’t really have the means to kill you? That’s because there is no incentive, at all, for them to keep you alive.
A lot of the people who KOS on DayZ are usually inexperienced or stupid players. Because Smart Veteran players know that the real skill and pay off is in the “Hold-up”. Shooting people in DayZ breaks their things. Damage to location ruins items. Also Gear space is very limited, so you can’t always take everything that the person you’re trying to rob has.
In contrast, Rust, has lots of resource gathering, and no reason to kill everyone you can because, hell, even his body can make weapons, food, and resources. Nothing is ever damaged (Although, sometime things bug out) And the internet is full of jerks. Rust current game play gave the internet jerks license to Grief to their hearts content. No diminished returns, very few consequences outside of being afraid of the ‘bigger fish’, and huge gains; just pure lolz.
I can’t say I don’t KOS everything I see (When I can) because there is zero reason not to. And I consider myself a fair and practical person. Don’t want KOS-griefers? Need new incentives not to murder everything you see.
Just one Greifer’s Suggestion.
