Where did everyone go?

Post by Gryplyp on Wed Mar 25, 2015 1:48 pm

Man, this sucks.  Nobody is playing regularly anymore.  I have a few suspicions as to why.  I'm going to point out the main one, as much as I hate to do it.  Money, money, money...  Ever since that huge sum of dollars hit the server, there was a shift in how the game was played.  Rather than gather (or hunt) for mats, many of us (yes myself included) started buying everything we needed.  Need food, buy cooked wolf meat.  Need a new gun, ok buy a new gun.  Need pants, buy Urban Pants.  Need to build a giant home, buy wood, stone, and metal frags...  See where I am going here.  The money fucked up the whole game by making many of us (myself included again) spoiled rich bastards who don't go out and earn anything anymore.  This money also had another negative side effect, building has been rampant and huge.  This is causing some serious lag in certain areas.  Just try to get near that pyramid.  Or for that matter, even my mildly huge house incurs a 20 fps drop when near it or inside of it.  Don't get me wrong, I love building huge extravagant buildings.  But something is just not right.  Maybe its shitty code writing on the part of Facepunch.  Maybe its just some messed up inequity in the server economy.  Maybe it is just a lack of fresh/perceived content. Or hell, maybe it is something else or a combination of all sorts of shit.  I don't know.

I have some suggestions however.  It won't be popular, but rest assured it will be for our own good.

1) Let's level the playing field.  I'm talking about a full on money, and server wipe.  It's time for a reset so everyone and everything is fresh.
2) The shop needs to be nerfed.  I like the idea of selling TO it.  But buying FROM it should be limited to just a few basics.  No more buying guns and ammo.  Just wood, stone, and maybe some RAW meat.
3) And finally, we should up the gather rate to no more than 3X.  This satisfies some of the gather rate requests while helping to ease the pain of a shop nerf.  

My goal in writing this isn't to piss anyone off or anything like that.  I simply believe that the current money glut created (or definitely contributed to) some serious issues which negatively affected the server population.  

Thoughts?

I got raided, Euthanasia left a calling card (but it could have been someone else blaming him) and wiped me out.  Replaced doors, changed lock codes etc. and I never found a wall down.  So me thinks someone gave him the code to enter.  My fault for giving it out to those 3 or 4 folks I gave it to.  After that, just the thought of having to go out and chop wood and pound rocks for hours on end sounded about as appetizing as Thor in a g-string.  Which is to say NOT MUCH!  I don't have a problem per se with gathering stuff, but it needs to be faster.  

AND I agree with Gryp in that the money ruined most of what Rust is.  I don't like the store at all.  I wish the store was gone altogether.  Now I know that last part contradicts what I said about gathering...but if the gather rate was increased I think that pain in the assed activity could be reduced to a more tolerable level.  I know I'd probably come back.

Im wondering if Thor took my advice and got himself an iRacing account?  If that's the case...sorry everyone!  lol

No I am still around, sorry I have been super busy trying to get my septic fixed at the house. That is finally done. Yes I am going to be doing a wipe of money and server, possibly bps. I am installing some new features on the server, one being a hunt mod that levels up your character and will give you increased gather rates. the other is a pet mod so you can have pets now. I do agree the money got out of hand plus with no really new content from Rust the game has gotten stale. I am looking for an admin to help out. Maybe Gryp you would be interested. I am still only playing rust, just been real busy and also researching NPC characters being added to server. Hoping to get this all in for you in the next week.

Hey guys,
I had some training i had to do, so was gone for a couple weeks. I guess I'm the main driving force behind most of my friends playing, so pretty much none of them logged on during that time, which probably led to less random folks hopping in as well. Also, EdSurly, that wasnt us. we dont mess with replacing peoples doors or changing locks, if anything, we might replace a wall we busted into or something.
On to the store/bank. I like it being there, but yeah, i have to say, i wouldnt mind seeing a bank wipe. my crew has like 50mil in our combined banks, making it very easy to do whatever we want. yeah, we got carried away with the pyramid area. lol anyhow. I'm back for now, and look forward to seeing more folks again. Haven't seen any of the crabs boys on since i got back a couple days ago.
cya guys.

Hello Fellows,
Sorry I hadnt been on. The money thing wasnt it at all. One of the patches caused the FPS to plummet even for nice computers like mine. I stopped due to that then CSFayt distracted me <.< >.> with things. Anyway Im back now.
         The One you all love,
