The server wipe is here to stay due to technical reasons forcing our hand. We stated before that we want to do as little wipes as possible, that’s still the case.
Here’s the explanation by our Rust server provider.
The most recent Rust update released by the developers have caused severe performance issues when using old saves. To correct this issue, we will need to wipe the server’s save data folder “myserverdata”. Our control panel will go into maintenance mode at 6:30 EST. During the maintenance, all Rust services will be restarted. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
