Worst Rust PvE Admin Ever

So yesterday I spent maybe 8 hours on and off coming up with a plan for (thanks for the help Ollie!), and configuring PvP zones on certain monuments on the PvE server, just to add a little interest for the players there. I discovered something interesting about the way you could identify zones which should make it relatively easy to add the same monuments as PvP each wipe – I think about 20-30 minutes total.

In other words I was doing what admins should be doing.  Testing, tweaking, making the server better.

Then.  While I was still working on it.  This tit.  Note that he has over 3,000 hours on Rust, so should know better.

(20:49:19) | [Better Chat] {Admin} PPlank: I mean PvE is a LOT easier then PvP…
(20:49:28) | [Better Chat] {Admin} PPlank: Well he’s banned.
(20:49:36) | [Better Chat] {Admin} PPlank: Lifetime across all servers.

Look.  To anyone reading this.  We say quite clearly in the rules both on this site and the in-game rules…  “We don’t take sides.  We don’t get involved.”  It’s because we’re busy doing REAL admin work to make the servers better.  We’re not running a fucking day care center for special snowflakes.

And we REALLY have no time for idiots like this.  Things didn’t go the way he thought they should, and he immediately started crying for mommy.

Yes, we are here to listen, give advice, and help.  But…  Do your bit too…

Read the rules.

Do not accuse or whine about other players without good reason or proof.

Or we WILL ban YOU.

Oh. I’ll just add to this that the work I was doing to add the PvP zones included at the launch site where the Bradley spawns. This means that in future he would have been able to defend his kill by shooting anyone that tried to loot the Bradley he’d just destroyed.
