Back in August, we announced that the Rust division would be closed down indefinitely due to several issues with performance and many other factors. After a long break, I am delighted to announce that the division will be returning, led by @Baconator, from its break on the 17th of December at 5:00 PM CST!
One of the biggest issues we faced before the division took a break was our server's performance issues, with quite a bit of lag and stuttering plaguing the experience. Over the past few months, efforts have been made to maximize performance across all of GFL, with significant improvements seen across the board - especially in some of our most demanding communities like CS:GO Surf and GMod CWRP. We hope that our newfound performance gains will prevent the performance issues faced by Rust in the past!
To start, we will be launching with a single server: a Modded 5x server!
IP Address: rust5x.gfl.gs:28015 (126.96.36.199:28015)
Launch: 17th December 2021 - 5:00 PM CST
As we make progress with this server, we will be looking at community feedback to see what we can bring to the table next, so please join the discussion in the GFL Rust Discord: https://gfl.gs/rustdiscord
A sincere thank you to all involved in making this possible, and we hope everyone enjoys the server! The sub-forum for Rust will be opened upon launch, so in the meantime, join the Rust Discord.
