Me and the boys after years of not playing all hopped into a vanilla Germany server, partly out of absolute boredom and partly out of nostalgia. We didn’t feel like dealing with a fuck ton of folks so we joined a server with a low player count.
And I’ve got to say, playing this game again with a group of friends after so many years was honestly really fun. We made so much progress in just one day and it was super satisfying. Already we’re constructing a metal base, we got super lucky and found raiding gear, nabbed two airdrops from a 3 man group, and we’ve got a plane and 3 cars already. And sure, this was on a half of the time empty easy server, but in the moment none of us really cared. And when a 4 man and a few other 2 man groups were on, that made it actually enjoyable. I think the best moment was recruiting two randoms to be our “scrap monkeys” and they actually went out and got scrap for us, so we rewarded them with some food and a gun (totally won’t backfire on us).
All of this aside, I’m curious to know if anyone else is going through this right now - are you rediscovering the fun that can be had in this game? What’s it been like for you?
