  1. 4 megabits per sec and implying it's bad?! Shit, I remember back in the day when I was happy to see 100 kb/s download rates. I distinctly remember finding out one day that our rates moved up to 300 kb/s -- o baby what a day that was.
  2. I'm looking for a good central server that has monthly wipes and a high-ish maximum amount of players on. 300 or even 350 would be amazing, but with the official list that I've seen, 200 might have to be settled on. I think New York 2 fits these requirements but if you guys know of any other good official servers, let me know.
  3. I was sometimes skeptical of Face's additions to the server but even when I might've sounded like I disagreed with their balance, I've always been fully supporting of them. If anyone remembers the months of War3 prior to when Face joined the ENGie crew, they'd remember the War3 population slowly dying off -- our full 28 server population per night went down to a max of 10 players and that was only if the server wasn't completely empty for the night. Most of our regulars had reached the endgame (if there even is one for war3) and were simply hanging out; that lasted only a few weeks before people started getting bored and leaving. The game was honestly feeling stale since we were so used to new races being added every few weeks and our devs then were slowing that down to months. Face's first addition to the game was refreshing and over time I honestly believe it was due to his consistent content creation (and recreation, fuk Blademaster =[) that breathed life back into our server. Thanks for everything you've done Face! Hope the experience and projects here have given ya something to use irl.
  4. 0, unranked. People still play and care about comp ranks in 2017 wutface
  5. I was hoping to get this thing started next official wipe, which would be the following Thursday, February 2nd.
  6. I honestly don't believe we need a specified leader tbh. I don't see any positive effects to having a single person back at main camp saying we need more rockets, we need more walls, pls go gather, here's who we're attacking tonight, etc. Input on what the village needs next is definitely important but I feel like that's something everyone can chime in on. If any disputes do happen to break out, I'm sure I and other neutral players like Trav and Junzou can mediate them. I do agree on needing raid leaders though and our more experienced players can fill that role. Zerging gets chaotic real fast and we're totally going to need shot callers. I once teamed with Karma and some inexperienced players for a 10 man raid and teamspeak was awfully loud-- just imagine having 30+ people in there (which reminds me that we'll need to do some raiding boot camp before raiding [= ). Raid leaders can totally help alleviate that problem. Gathering in my ideal camp would be done by everybody. With zergs back on sG Rust, I'd simply say how many rockets I gathered and made, another group would next, then the last group: from there we target the largest base that we believed we could take on with the pooled rockets. Splitting up loot has never been an issue as usually there's so much stuff to go around and I feel like this system would work on official as well; splitting up loot shouldn't be an issue at all since we're all on the same side now tbh. As for the small stuff like components+materials, I feel like gathering squads would be the best way to go (unless you're just bored and wanna wander around gathering of course). With how populated official servers are, if you take more than a few steps outside your door then you're 100% going to find someone or someones. We can Walking Dead that shit: watch eachothers backs while they're gathering; safety in numbers. I'm not opposed to a dedicated gathering squad, but make sure at least one of you can kill people [=. As for base defense, I do feel that if someone wants the walls of the village done a certain way then we can definitely have a base defense team that works on the wall design. Getting the village walled up will be a major milestone and the sooner we can get on that, the less time we have to run around trying to find a spot to settle without getting absolutely dicked on. We definitely need a person focused on the walls from the get-go -- it can even be with high ext. wooden walls since they're amazing in early game official.
  7. That was what I was thinking of myself if one big building wasn't favored, since we can still have our own small groups if we wanted with this set up.
  8. Then they're getting voted off the island [=
  9. I was wondering if anyone was interested in starting up a compound on an official server after a wipe. Rather than us shooting eachother, we can all group up and take a world together as a huge zerg. It honestly sounds fun raiding with 20+ people, or chilling in a huge base that we all work on and sleep in together. We don't even have to be on at the same time: visiting the sG headquarters on an official whenever we're in the mood sounds dope AF. Mabey you're in the mood for official but don't want to start up solo -- our base would be the perfect home for anyone in this situation, which I personally have had in the past. Some players on our servers prefer to hop in, build for a few, then hop off; others like to constantly farm and raid. An sG base on an official server would work great for both playstyles. I know some people who play on our server are also playing on official on the side -- I think it'd be awesome if everyone instead banded together and ruled a server. The one and only downside to this might be a small loss of playtime on our server, but like above, some people are already spending time on two servers so it might not even be a loss at all. Even if you don't have the time: I've seen plenty of people chill on our server until other groupmates pm that it's raid time on an official server -- a call to arms system like that should let you play on both servers just fine since being on for raiding time or defending a base from rockets are where the major fun of Rust is at. It also means people don't have to choose between playing the two servers and can just hop on the official server whenever something's going on. Rustafied (major official server host) has monthly wipe cycles as opposed to our weekly ones -- that's plenty of time to play on our server as well as an official one imo. We've all been shooting at eachother for weeks now and there's been a lot of grudges growing between our own community members and friends. Others have 20+ friends shared on the map but aren't technically "teamed" with them (since we don't want 30 man clans on our 50 pop server). With everyone suddenly on the same side and our small world invading an official's, we can definitely mend some bridges and have a damn lot of fun while doing so. Leave a message below w/ your thoughts or if you're interested so we can get some beds going if we do decide to have a base on a server. EDIT: We're likely going to start up the sG village base next official wipe, which will be February 2nd (Thurs). The server is still being decided on -- if you'd like to recommend one then please post below.
  10. We have races that are restricted from buying scrolls of respawn? Why, when they cost so damn much already lol.
  11. I felt like everytime I died to this I was just imagining excuses as to why I lost the gunfight but wooooo this shit's finally fixed! I know @DerpyPwny lost a handful of fights before quitting due to freezes right as a gunfight started up, mabey the game's actually playable now. Ayy new gun [=, the magnum revolver being added next week.
  12. Embrace the weeb. Your next step is to buy a pillow with an anime girl on it.
