Rust Academy.com has been around for a couple of years now and over that time we have been up and we have been down. We have tried various combinations of Vanilla servers, 3X, 5X, 10X and 1000X. Our population has also been up and down, lately down with a few fanatical players (You know who you are!)
We are going to give it one more try – lately we have had hosting issues, but that is not unusual. Our population dropped off significantly and I don’t blame them. It is good to be able to come to a stable server that is always up and running. One of the things we have done in the last two weeks is created another server on a different host and we are syncing them, so if one host goes down, we move Oxide, maps and such, change the name and we are back up again. The plan is to test this cutover process in the next two weeks.
I appreciate you playing on our servers. Thank you.
