OfflineTV Rust server return time/date

As confirmed by BaboAbe on Twitter, the new server will go live on Monday, July 5

The new server is scheduled to go live at 12pm PDT / 3pm EDT / 8pm BST / 9pm CEST.

Just like all the other times, it may take a few minutes before everyone manages to load into the server, given that there’s plenty of interest. So, tune in your streamer of choice at the time, wait a few minutes, and things should start to get underway.

What’s changing?

Dexerto says “Those who have been watching along with the previous iterations of the server rules might be in for a bit of a shock this time around.

Last time out, there was plenty of focus on roleplaying instead of the typical Rust experience of just dominating others with guns and in fights. This time around, there will be a bit more focus on PVP.”


As outlined on the rule changes, players will now be able to group up into teams of 8 again, and can partner with other squads for any fights. However, there will be a serious clampdown on claims of metagaming and also stream sniping – something that is in pretty much every game at the moment on Twitch.

Another huge change sees players being able to offline raid an enemy’s base. Last time out, this was very frowned upon, given that a team could lose all of their gear and not be able to fight back.


Some streamers such as Sodapoppin and Sykkuno have raised concerns with the focus being placed on PVP – “with Soda suggesting that it won’t be too fun if a lot of full-time Rust players get involved as they did last time.”

The changes to the server might not be super favored by some viewers, as the original was uber-popular, but only time will tell if it’s an improvement.
