    I appreciate the kind words. It means a lot to our whole team. We try to provide the best environment and fun we can, so it's nice to hear some appreciate that. As for the increasing slots, there is a few reasons we try to avoid messing with them too much. Every time we adjust the slots of a server, it can easily be noticed by many players and they talk about it. People are naturally against change. So when they see the max players on a server going from 200 -> 250 -> 300 then log in the next day and it's back down to 200, it can seem pretty strange/off. Furthermore, a lot of people pick servers based on their max slots. So if you are constantly changing a 200 to 300 slots and people start to notice a pattern, then they won't see an issue bringing their 12 man group to a server that normally has 6 man max. All of a sudden you have a bunch of people that played there for the small groups getting wiped by this large group. We want to avoid that. Lately, especially with it being summer, we have been messing with the max slots of our servers more than usual to try and accommodate as many players as we can. Last week we raised Medium to 250 on wipe night due to there being a 150+ queue and knowing that server can handle it. Yesterday we also raised the max pop on Hapis to 200 and we fully intend on raising that even higher with this new update since we can rely on the hardware to perform with the increased load. Lastly, we also raised the pop on Main to 400 with the newest update. And it maintained its performance like a champ. It will be exciting to see if we have a queue large enough to push that even further next week and really see what the new server update can handle. Lastly, we can't deny that it also is about money. Our server costs are NOT cheap. Especially when we have a server like Hapis that has not payed for itself since the day we made it. Luckily our other servers fill in and are able to cover that cost so that the Hapis players are able to enjoy the server type they enjoy, but it comes at a cost. So being able to have that queue and the demand for VIP is exactly what allows us to keep our community running. Without that there isn't a chance in the world we'd be able to afford to keep us online. Anyways, I'm sure this is more than you were looking for and I'm sure you won't read it, but you caught me while I was on the road so I figured I'd write something up lol. Hopefully it gives a little bit of insight.
  2. Already answered you in Discord, but for future readers: we do not have a public ban list and do not plan on making our ban list public for various reasons.

    To be perfectly honest with you, most of the players on our larger servers are pretty hard core. I'd recommend checking out our Mini server if you're new. Just until you get on your feet. But remember, Rust is always better with friends! Hopefully that friend that convinced you will hop in with you some time! Good luck out there.
  5. @Ognennyy As the programmer who wrote our back-end and manages our VIP sales, what these guys said is exactly right. VIPs do not actually reserve a slot out of the max 350 players. It just simply lets them connect regardless of if there is a queue or not. So the first 350 players to join at wipe (regardless if they've bought VIP or not) will get in to the server and then any more connections that do not have VIP get put in the queue and the VIPs just raise current pop over the listed max (as Code explained). Also, you mentioned that you were 100 in queue while the server read 100 online. This is because the player count on the server browser only says the number of players currently connected. It doesn't count the number of players that have been approved to join but are still loading in. So in reality it was 100 "connected" and 250 "joining" which makes up the full 350 slots. While I know it seems crazy to get put in queue that fast, yesterday the server had 390 players players joining and 200 in queue within 45 seconds of being online. It was pretty nuts. Hopefully our 3 replies clear it all up. Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Sigh. You do realize who Errn works for, no? Regardless, it doesn't matter where the second ban is from. Our rules are the same if it's Rust or your favorite VR Anime girl game. We don't care. You need better friends. They're not very nice!

    Report what to valve? That you we banned you from OUR server for breaking our rules and being a repeat cheater? I look forward to my discussion with Gaben.

    I'm game. Let's make it happen.
  11. This guy is going to lose his shit during boom party. xd On a serious note, it is indeed 2 days before forced wipe. We like to have fun and fuck around. We're not hurting anything and it's not like he was running around with god mode and an M249. He was just flying around. Whoever hops in can do w/e they want. It's not like Wojak was intentionally flying people to each person on the map so that someone could get all their shit. It was just wrong place at the wrong time for that guy. God forbid we have a bit of harmless fun every once in awhile. All I'm really saying is if you're seriously this upset about something this silly then you might want to find a new place or that stick up your ass is really going to start hurting tonight.

    I mean tbf they do still have 1m peak players every month. That's pretty wild. Probably need to delete the forum for it though.
