What If I Don't Like The Rules?

If this playing style does not match what you are looking for, we certainly understand and would rather you play on another server.


Can We Place Stuff When We Raid?

You are allowed to place doors,TC and stuff to secure the raid from the base owner and counters.

when you have finished moving loot all the locks and doors must be removed.

we allow up to 2 hours to move loot to your base.


WHAT is KILLING FRESH SPAWNS and NOOB FRIENDLY BEHAVIOR?


We have a lot of experienced Players on the server and we welcome all of you. However, we are seeing (first hand) a lot of fully geared players (armor, AK’s, etc.) killing players on sight who are farming with nothing but rocks or stone tools. We are getting flooded with complaints from players who can’t step out of their wooden 2×2 bases to even chop a tree, without getting killed by a fully geared player. This is happening to new players repeatedly and they often leave the server as a result.


The intent of RUSTY ZONE has ALWAYS been to have the proper balance, where new players as well as experienced players can have fun. We WILL NOT compromise on that goal! If PVP is your main desired game play, there are plenty of experienced and fully geared players to PVP with on this server. You don’t have to look far to find them! However, the fresh spawn hitting a tree with a rock, trying to build a wooden 2 X 2, has nothing you need. Quit using them for your personal target practice!


We are not saying “don’t kill naked players” and we will not make a rule against that. After all, you may be involved in a PVP battle or Raid and someone could be running back fully naked trying to get to their body. Someone could also be running between bases loaded full of loot and be fully naked, we get that and this is not what we are talking about. We are specifically talking about fresh spawns who are obviously just starting out and have nothing you need. You obviously know before you pull the trigger, what the specific situation is.


Here’s a clue, if someone is using a rock or primitive stone tool to farm, they are very likely a new player just getting started. Instead of killing them, how about throwing them a couple of upgraded tools and helping them out. Why? Because that new player you help out today, will build a bigger base, collect more loot and give you someone to PVP or Raid later on. Also, they will return to the server next wipe and help to keep the population growing.


I appreciate all of you on this server, but want to be clear that the admin team WILL continue to spectate and WILL be warning and/or removing players who are unwilling to operate within the spirit of gameplay that is healthy for this community. We WILL NOT allow toxic players who think it’s fun to KOS fresh spawns, to ruin this server or hurt the population. If you or your player is guilty of this, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!


I leave you all with a thought and question I have repeated many times, it takes a great community to make a great server. How much fun will you have if this server is empty? Do your part!
