The Rust craze could return to Twitch with the return of the ever-popular OfflineTV server. However, there is one big change that will change the dynamic – more role-playing. Good type of.
Rust and GTA RP have swapped places over the past few months as a must-see variety feed title on Twitch. Everyone from Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel to Sykkuno to Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar, and many others in between, have jumped in between.
While the OfflineTV Rust server was originally a hit in 2020, it died out before 2021 as streamers returned to GTA RP. However, he’s coming back soon – but there’s one big change that might confuse some people.
New OfflineTV Rust Server Rules Move to “Vanilla PvP”
The administrator of the ‘BaboAbe’ server has told players that the new server will be less about role-playing than old-fashioned Vanilla PvP.
“The server is PvP / Vanilla Rust oriented. You can RP, PvP, just socialize / be yourself. However, just know that you can get killed at any time, ”Abe said in the comeback announcement.
Abe promised a lot of “chaos, death and tears” with the server relaunch a bit more hardcore than older RPGs. However, the same rules for stream sniping and meta gaming – do it and get banned.
The administrator added in his update: “I know it can be tempting, but if you are strongly suspected of doing it, you can be kicked out.”

The server’s return has many people excited, as it will likely reduce much of the drama that plagued the former.
However, some members of the OfflineTV team are concerned.
Sykkuno said so in May, with the hugely popular Twitch streamer admitting he’s not a fan of people “killing each other for no reason” on a non-role-playing server.
When does the OfflineTV Rust server return?
The OfflineTV Rust server will launch on July 5 at 12:00 p.m. PT / 3:00 p.m. ET. Many streamers have already received invites to participate in previous OTV Rust campaigns, but otherwise it’s a pretty closed ship unlike NoPixel’s new open servers.
xQc himself has said he’s on board for the comeback, so expect to see plenty of Twitch giants jump into the action on day one.
