Hi Brave New Rust Community,
I know you will guy will be up and ready for this new patch, so I will update the servers as soon as possible, Thursday 11/3 around 1-3PM Pacific Time Zone. I hope you will enjoy the new change for Rust, and we hope it will turn out better or for worst.
So we will be starting super fresh with a big change to the game. It will be a component system so anyone can craft anything from the start. Harder components for guns and etcs will be deeper in land vs the basic items will be in different zone.
So hang on to your butts because were going to go on for a ride. Expect delays, bugs, and glitches. Expects the worst and don’t be surprise if we have a RESET. I will try my best to address the situation, and if it is really bad the first week, we can figure out something. Expect a bumpy launch, so please bare with Facepunch and the Brave New Rust Servers.
Thank you for all the patience. I will update this post as soon I get more information.

“The XP system mainly sucked because it completely changed the feel of Rust as a sandbox. It was no longer about new encounters and enjoying your time in the game world, but instead about how to level up as quickly as you can. And when that finally happened, the game immediately became boring. It was also unsustainable going forward. New items we haven’t even thought of yet would need to be hacked into certain levels, which would cause a never ending balance nightmare and item bloat (it was already ridiculous when you’d reach a level and have 12 things unlocked). Eventually we’d like to never have to wipe and just have decay and resource management take care of the server, and XP was not compatible with this goal without all kinds of workarounds and hacks forced in like some sort of prestige system. And lastly, it removed the “making lemonade out of lemons” feel Rust had, where you’d stumble across a bucket helmet and crossbow blueprint and that would be your load-out for the foreseeable future.” -Maurino Berry (Helk)
