This Topic should have been taken up long time ago but i guess i need to be one of the first.
I’ve seen people changing a lot because of the what i call “Server Owner Effect”.
They usually start of with friends and want to make a server together but after a certain amount of time they change over time, this may be because they became successful or because they were unsuccessful.
I’ve seen the successful people hammering down on the unsuccessful “victims”.
The people that start a server(s) start with a reason. That may be just for the money, making a brand new community with friends or just to meet people and etc (there is to many to name)
There is many reasons why I see the “Server Owner Area” is starting to become toxic.
The more Successful Server Owners I’ve seen repeatedly harass the lower end server owner’s making them not feel welcome, just wanna stop hosting or just stop playing the game.
I’ve seen them destroying communities and raiding other communities repeatedly. They adapt strategies and even go so far as becoming/hiring an “undercover developer” to destroy the servers from inside out making them loose all data.
These people should get removed or resolved from the community ASAP. But how we can do that is another question. These types of people doesn’t help the community at all
Everyone should be able to play Unturned and do whatever they want to, its a free game for everyone to play for mature or younger audience(s)
It’s not me saying that the successful people doesn’t deserve the “fame, glory and popularity” since everyone have been working hard to make it successful. But there should be a limit what stuff
From my Host Experience the last 3-4 Years. I only had one of these experiences.
i have experience having someone destroy my community that I’ve been working so hard on is devastating, after that i wanted to just quit but i kept going until i could reach the very end. so i myself are one of those “victims”
The point of why i am writing this topic is To STOP Server/Community Raid’s and the harassment that affects the lower end communities
Tips from protecting yourselves from these people
• Do NOT hire/recruit any server developer(s) - try to do everything yourselves you can stay
• Try avoiding going with any sketchy “Partnerships” - Well if you know what your doing, go for it and if
• Do NOT accept “out of the blue” BOT Developers - The dc bot can do whatever they want. So be
aware of this
• My main tip is to stay independent. Making your data and everything safe. How to setup servers alone and
more i guess. (This can be stressful so please don’t overwork yourself)
(This is what i found out and i am not the best with researching about this stuff)
From my research I’ve come to the conclusion from using https://unturned-servers.net (03.03.2019)
about 2150 (Not Exact) Server’s goes offline after their first month and the rest of the remaining 2300 servers stays up longer than a month. so about 40-50% of the servers just close.
this is just to show basicly “server survival rates” so about 1/2 of the server closes.
