Market for Rust servers is too saturated, there’s just too many servers for a new one to potentially take off. Not enough interest amongst members in the community to boost it. I’d recommend benching the idea for now.
Think this could be a cool idea. As logical said above, I think a 2x server with quality of life mods could have a chance of taking off. Though, since there are so many rust servers, they are hard to organically populate.
