Currently in Rust, it is always difficult, normally impossible, to find a server with your preferences.
The current filtering system in the game really doesn’t help anything at all, but it would be a massive quality-of-life improvement if admins of servers were forced to set and enforce rules such as:
- Max Team Limit
- Map Wipe Schedule (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly)
- BP Wipe Schedule (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly)
- Exact Number of players
- Certain ping or lower
- Map Size
- Type of map (PGM, Hapis, Barren, Other)
- Vanilla, 2x, 3x, 5x…
- Primary Language of Server
There are more but these are the main ones that I can think of.
It’s mildly frusturating that many servers have no description or minimal information, and the worst case scenario is when they don’t tell you the wipe schedule and just erase all of your progress whenever the server dies out to try and repopulate it.
