Rust (The Game)
on: August 17, 2022, 07:39:42 AM
Anyone play this or across this?
It really interests me. Gets regular updates, you got PVP and PVE aspects as well as building.

But the thing that has stopped me getting it is how server reset. Either on a regular basis or by the developers with updates. Everyone basically starts again each "Wipe" so achievements mostly lost etc. Just does not trigger with my achievement goals.

Thoughts?

I don't know how its grown but there used to be roaming gangs on there would go around naked pillaging others work and stealing their stuff. That's the impression I got anyway from YT vids. It looked kind of fun but Ark seems like a more developed and well rounded game with a lot more going for it.

There are different servers. Solo, Duo, Quad etc. Bigger can have clans and there are people who just raid bases, make trap bases etc.
I not really looked at ARK but there are a few of these games where things constantly reset. You may keep blueprint knowledge or some things but the start over with no constant progression I am not sure is just me being old or a new thing that is fine or if others agree etc?

I thought the whole server reset thing was just while these games were in active development and once released that wasn't going to be the case, maybe its stuck around because people like it for whatever reason? Maybe its controlled on a server by server basis

No, it is a core feature.
Any time the game developers release an update ALL servers have a forced "WIPE" so all have to start fresh.
You can have base game servers or custom servers (Allow more items to stack, custom maps, skins etc) but they all have a scheduled wipe system in place.


It is just a concept I can not grasp still. Progression I thought is what triggers the brain. Seeing numbers go off, seeing damage numbers, getting gear, looking unique and seeing your stats and how you sit.
