  1. Exactly what Blau said. With a server pop of 300/300, someone with VIP would become the 301st person on the 300 pop server. Then when someone leaves, pop goes back down to 300 and no one else can join until pop goes back down below the 300 max. VIP members are the exception, they can log in at any time.
  2. I'll answer your primary question first. Each server has a small amount of VIP slots made available for purchase that allows the VIP to bypass that queue. Those VIP slots allow for us to afford the costs associated with running some of the highest end servers, website, and occasionally getting me a Diet Coke or 2. Now that I've explained the basics of how the world works, as-in things are not free, I think I'll explain how your "pay-to-win" concept is incorrect. At any time of the day or night, you can see how many players are on and connecting to any of our servers https://moose.gg/ssm/ You can even see who is actually on with a service like https://www.battlemetrics.com/servers/rust?page[key]=11%2C2141915&page[rel]=prev&page[count]=1 So you're belief that we have 300 slots on the server and that we "hold" 200 in-order to "push" VIP sales is wrong. If we were trying to push VIP sales, do you thing we would be constantly sold out? Wouldn't we make more available to "juice" every cent? Just something to think on. And about the whole "I wouldn't find this so strange except that right before the restart each time there were fewer than 100 players online." part of your argument. Fewer people like to invest time in any game, whether it's Rust or not, just before they know the server is about to reset, deleting all their progress. So the fact that people are actually playing minutes before a reset is amazing. But comparing the number of people on the server 5 minutes before a wipe and 5 minutes after wipe doesn't even make sense. People get ready to log onto the server just after wipe since they know we have set times for wipe. If you have more questions on how we operate, don't be hesitant to ask. Send me a DM or something on Discord. But please don't try to call us "trash" in our own forums because you think you've found a conspiracy. The only conspiracy here is that Code404 is best Admin.

    There is no specific time for wipe on the first Thursday of each month. We wipe shortly after Facepunch releases the update. That can happen anytime during the day. It's been as early asa 11AM EST and as late as 7PM EST before. Join our Discord where you can get a notification in the #announcements channel> https://discord.gg/moose All other wipes occur at 5PM EST on each Thursday. More details for each server can be found either here (https://moose.gg/ssm/) or in the #whens-whip channel in Discord.

    Welcome to Rusty Moose, Just a heads up. This is still Rust, people are assholes. But we do try to take care of harassment and other similar issues. You'll probably still get some KYS messages from time to time, but if you get repeat offenders let us know. You can report people here https://moose.gg/report/

    @Speckmuetze We do not have any modded or 2x servers anymore. Blau is retarded and reversed that. Rusty Moose Accelerated 2x is no more. We have replaced it with Rusty Moose mini.

    @DutchNo one was playing the Accelerated server. While I agree with you that was my favorite server, the last 2 weeks of the server had maybe 20 people on it at anytime.

    We do not want people on our server that have been found to be cheating or exploiting. It makes our lives easier. Rusty Moose is a hobby. It is no one's "job". We are banning the person. Just because you make another account, that doesn't mean you didn't cheat somewhere else. Yes. We will ban all of your accounts. Check out our rules page. https://moose.gg/rules/

    Try verifying your Steam game files. Also, holly crap! That's a couples FPS.

    We only just opened a European server a couple of months ago. At this time we do not have plans to open any specific locations. But there is always a chance, no matter how small, that we'll continue to expand.

    Did you come to our Discord? https://discord.gg/moose That's where you can get immediate responses. The website is for more long term discussion/info. And just like all other servers, the first Thursday of the month is totally dependent on when Facepunch releases the update.

    Sooo.... you're recruiting players from our lovely Rusty Moose community to go play in a cancer zerg/clan on ANOTHER server? Hmm...
  13. Just fill out a support ticket and we will get that refund to you. As long as that VIP was purchased recently. https://moose.gg/support/ We do not have the ability to transfer VIP.

    Did you try restarting Rust and see if that continues?

    We do not refill VIP slots manually. They become available once a current VIP slot is not renewed. Check out the Discord server. We have a bot that posts messages whenever a new VIP slot becomes available. https://discord.gg/moose
