Those who love to tune into the OTV server’s action regularly will know the likes of xQc, Valkyrae, Pokimane, Myth, and more have been mainstays.
The action players have been enjoying is about to be shaken up, but, as a new server update is being rolled out. For many of those wondering how it’s going to look when the dust has settled, but this post has brought together most of the confirmed details for you all in one place.
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.
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.

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.

And when he does collaborate with them, it leads to drama more often than not. For example, he clashed with streamers like Pokelawls and Myth on the OfflineTV Rust server before quitting. Then, when he moved onto GTA RP, he got banned multiple times following clashes with other streamers like MOONMOON before moving on. Heck, he even rage-quit from a Monopoly game. But interestingly enough, butting heads with other streamers isn’t the reason why he’s now “done” with collaborations. It turns out that something else bothers him much
