RUST is under attack

The game RUST was created by Facepunch Studios and inspired by games like DayZ, Minecraft, and Stalker. Rust aims to create a hostile environment in which emergent gameplay can flourish. Well someone took “hostile environment” a little too far.

For the past few days the networking library called ULink, the host Facepunch Studios uses to handle 300 people on a single server, has been under attack by “script kiddies” DDoS’ing the ULink service. This has caused players to be unable to play the game they paid for.

As someone who has become addicted to RUST, I can honestly say I’m very disappointed with the people responsible for the attacks. I can’t fathom why someone would DDoS a game that is still in the Alpha stages of development. Facepunch apologizes for the interruptions and promises they are working around the clock to resolve this issue.
