Hi long time fan of rust here but a problem I consistently run into is finding a server with a good ping. I live in the northwest of the US and most official servers seem to be eastcoast based and even facepunch west server are so far south I I get 120~ ping I get the same ping on most central servers and get 150+ on eastcoast servers. If you were to host one or two facepunch servers in say seattle or portland I think it will make the game more accesible to a lot of northwesterners like myself.

Honestly jump on to a community server, there is barely any difference at all between a Facepunch server and say Rustafied or a vanilla community server.
The only difference is the higher chance of waiting in a queue…
