BNR: Season XIII Patch Delay 1/5

Hi Brave New Rust Community,

Looks like there is a patch delay from Facepunch. Looks like they will be adding lots of stuff this new season and this is the first time they ever delayed a patch, so they want to make sure they get it right.

6:18pm EST – “Sorry, but the patch has been delayed to Friday.” –Devblog 142

Please come back tomorrow around the same time and we will update the server as soon as we can.

Thank you for your consideration and patience.

Preview Season XIII 12/30

Happy New Year! Brave New Rust Community,

Welcome to the preview of the New Year and we are looking forward to more Rust on the horizon. It will be a new season and there will be new things in store.

Since there has been an increase of new residents of Brave New Rust both US Servers and Australian Server. There will be more updates and changes ahead. Some of the changes is an upgrade on hardware, so you should notice less lag even with the new members coming in and playing on the server. I expect next season to cap to 75 and with the up coming data we will try to increase the cap and community accordingly.

Alykah and Ardin have been doing a great job watching over the server, and making this season feel like the best season of Brave New Rust yet. Thank you so much for your hard work and keeping Brave New Rust a safe place from Trollers, Hackers, and Toxic Players. Thank you so much for keeping the server a fun place to play.

Thanks again community for a great Rust experience!

Even though sometimes Me and the Admins are get flack from Toxic players. Other players have also came up to me and said a lot great things about, “Brave New Rust”. It is those comments that help us know that we’re doing our best to make a great Rust community. Thank you again!

Like always thank you for your support and donations! Every donations goes back to community or growth of other game servers like Ark and Minecraft. We can’t do this without your loving support, so every donation counts as we continue to grow this Rust Community!

Did you know Brave New Rust this month capped at 75 Users and average daily 26 Users at same time! Congratulation!

With that being said, anyone that keeps telling me or my servers admins that my server will die can please stop.


Please don’t private message me or my admins about how you’re going  to leave. Or that you took a poll of people, or how many of your clan will leave the server. Please, I beg you, please just leave the server, because if you do, I will personally ban you myself. So please, don’t do this…

Thank you again for all the toxic folks, we couldn’t do this without your help. We work really hard to keep the numbers at a good rate for the Rust community and do our best to get rid of all the toxic players on our servers.

So without further information, here is the Preview for Brave New Rust Season XIII

New Season, New Map and Bigger Map 4.5k:

Brave New Rust: Season XII

Hi Brave New Rust Community,

We finally made it to the final season of the year and to have a server last for a whole year has been a big accomplishment for the whole community. I know the server is not perfect, so as I start to work on new projects and new life projects. I will past the torch to Alykah so next season or future season will be updated smoothly.

As we wind down to the end of the year. I hope you all had a good time in Brave New Rust. Its been a long year for me and my life. Creating this server means a lot, and took a lot of grinding work. As I finish up this year, I will work on other servers such as Minecraft and Ark and I plan to do the same to those games as I did to Rust.

Thank you for a great community!

See you Next Year!

BNR: Server Update 11/17

Hi Brave New Rust Community,

It seems that the server has been growing really fast and the game has picked up back to where it started. I feel that this new patch has changed the game for the better and with everything, still there are things that need to improve and grow. With the new numbers of people joining the server, it seems that the server is growing. Thanks again for joining the server and I have updated the description on the server to better inform on the wipe dates.

BNR: Discord Channel 11/7

Hi Brave New Rust Community,

I might as well share and open a “Brave New Rust” Discord Channel. Please use it, so we can start making more of a Game community and a ways to communicate on the Server or other games. Maybe even form a group to play other games like Overwatch or League of Legends. Group up and share your ideas in chat or hang out.

Or post in the channel about how you got ban for nothing. Cool Stories!

Either way, more forms of communication for the game community. Yay!

Cheers, talk to you guys soon.

Season XI: Brave New Rust 11/3


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.

Stay Rusty,

“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)

Last Week – Season X: BNR 10/28

Hi Brave New Rust Community,

It is the last week and to go over the new changes… Everything that Facepunch had been working on is going to Hell, and it looks like were going to a new system next week.

It looks like they will be revamping the map to a component system and saying GOODBYE to the XP system.

Which means everything that you guys all work hard on is going to be gone. I’m sorry to say this but this game has been a roller coaster. As the Owner of Brave New Rust. I have honestly been burnt out from all the changes but still trying to manage a good Rust experience. I have been gone for work the past few months and from the look of it, the game experience is looking from bad to worst.

I can hope for the best but we’ve been in Alpha for a very long time. I been hearing a lot of concern on the new patch, and if you don’t come back to the game or server, I totally understand. I will keep the server open for the Vanilla Rust Experience.

Anyone on the server, should respect the Admins of the server, if you are banned then it is with good reason. If you’re banned most likely you’re being a smart ass, trolling, or doing something obscene to annoy people. Please respect everyone and understand you’re a guest on my server, you can leave anytime you want, so please don’t threaten me or any of my admin.

You will be banned and get a salt shaker in the forums if you cry more.

Overall, I appreciate your time here in Brave New Rust, and I have seen the rise and fall of this game. Hopefully Facepunch can get their shit together, and as a fellow gamer I’m starting to work on other projects on my Twitch Channel. So I will probably be just monitoring the servers. So enjoy the next season, be marry, and stay Rusty.

You can catch me online or on my Twitch.

Stay Rusty,

Preview to Season XI: BNR


Hi Brave New Rust Community,

I’m finally back from the Desert Trip and I have finally start settling back down to my old computer where all my work has been. I apologize for last season, I wasn’t available to watch over the server. I appreciate Nitro and Alykah for stepping in for me and maintaining a presence online. I definitely couldn’t do this without you guys, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Overall, this server has been up for close to 11 months now, and this server has grown to become at least one of the top community Rust server that is available online.

That is because of you and everyone that comes in and out of the Brave New Rust community. I understand if you guys play different games, or if real life happens. I hope to continue to maintain this server so people can continue to play Rust. Even though I’m sure some of you guys are pretty burnt out from all the weird “ALPHA” changes, I’m sure the developers are trying their best.

Even though the server has been through the ups and down for the Rust development, the population of the servers, all the SALT or toxic players. We some how still continue to have traffic between 20-25 people on any given day.

Thanks again for playing on “Brave New Rust“, As we continue to play Rust, we hope Facepunch can finally get things balance and get this game together. Until then, here is what we have in store coming soon.

New Map on 11/3/2016, Map doesn’t wipe until 12/1/2016

No Toxic Player or Cheaters or you will be ban.
