All the new year's hipe is all over and we are well into the new year. We took some photos of the bases that survived until the end of the wipe. There were some interesting designs and ideas use in building bases. Lots of bases where build to protect their precious loot but there were some that build to look good and to use all the fun items of rust.
This was also the first month that we implemented the PVP - PVE Schedule and it was well-received. The idea here is to stop the 3 am weekday raids

New Ideas to keep Rust fun and experience all that rust have to offer.
Off-line Raids and KOS
We have been working on a way to stop offline raids during the early hours of the week. You all know 3 am in the morning is the best time to offline raid. The new schedule system will be implemented from the serverside no admins required to activate the time slots.
Halloween is done and dusted and the players build some amazing bases during the October 2020 wipe. With old rules are back and we saw some of the old players return back to the server.
Perfect Rust Wipe with action, salt and roleplaying. We also experienced the biggest Rust party thanks to the Rust party masters Woemboe and Warlock it was well planned and build. Sadly we had to remove the stream due to the social media publishing rules.
The biggest discovery in April was that horse poo is gold. Converting Poo into fertilizer and selling it for scrap. There were some big ssscrap farms on the map.
Well all we can say this is Rust. It seems like everyone on the server had a common enemy the enemy was a well-oiled opponent with lots of allies willing or not.
It took a lot of farming and planing for the big Riad. In the end, the riad was successful and the enemy was defeated. The Players involved had lots of fun and yes there was a bit of salt but it would not be Rust without the salt.
After a short poll the server was wiped with a new map and no blueprints.
Here are some images of the bases left standing at the end of the half Wipe.
The first month with the new rules is all done and over. It has been interesting the server lost some payers but gained new players. In the end, everyone still build big bases and big raiding battles took place.
Please share your thoughts in comments.

It’s is almost the 3-year birthday of the Voodoo Rust SA server. Is has been an exciting 3 years. With lots of fun and challenges during this time and it was all worth it.
The last couple of months have been very hard to keep the peace on the server and enforce the rules. Some groups found ways around every rule and group size rule. This made it very difficult for the players playing by the rules of the server.
So, I have given up and removed all the noob-friendly rules and unbanned all the players banned not following the rules.
There will be no moderators available any more on the server. You are now on your own and if there is a hacker online report the player to FacePunch in-game.
Maps will be picked at random on wipe day.
Decay Rate 8000 (No Change)
Date: 6 February 2020
Time: Any Time from 21:00pm (GMT +2)
If there are no active players on server, we will close the Rust SA server down and move the resource to another country or game.
The silly season is over and so we ended the December 2019 wipe. It was Rust with all the farming, building and PVP. The wipe would not have been a wipe without drama and offline raids. But most of us always return for more wipe after wipe.
There was no game update other than the Santa clause event during December. This will be the same for January 2020 but there are some big updates planned for 2020.
Thank you to all the players that played on the Voodoo Rust server for the wipe. We hope you had fun and wish you all an exciting new year of gaming.
Here are all the bases that made it to wipe day.
September Rust wipe has been a long and very interesting wipe. Spring is over and Summer is upon us here in South Africa.
Thank you for being part of the wipe.
There was some amazing bases built and some of the players found new ways to use electricity to power up the turrets.
In the end, Lobo's iceberg base survived the no limits end of wipe Raid. The VG Team and friends won the raid against the Toxic Team and friends.
The poll has been running for two weeks and the sentiment of the Voodoo Rust SA player base painted a very clear picture. There will be no changed to the rules of the Rust Voodoo SA |Noob Friendly server.
How we measure the sentiment.
The where some interesting suggestion and we will look into how and if we can implement it on there server.
The good news is there will be more purge events where the KOS rules are suspended during the event.
Thank you for taking part in the Poll it really helped to settle the discussion. The server rules and setup might not be for everyone we never intended to make the server for everyone.
The server is for the noobs, weekend warriors and for the advanced players.
If everyone follows the rules it would be possible to Learn, Farm, Build, Raid and experience all the feeling’s Rust will make you experience.
The Hapis island has been a different experience but, in the end, this is rust and there was some amazing bases and a lot of raiding during the wipe.
The Voodoo Server also had a nice constant population every day that made things even better for interaction and game play.
Thank you to all the players for making this a fun wipe.
We took photos of the bases that survived until the end.

Once every in-game day an easter egg hunt will begin. You'll have 3 minutes to collect as many eggs as you can. The top 3 players are given special eggs as a reward. These eggs can be cracked open for various types of loot ranging from scrap all the way up to an M249!
If you don't make the podium, that's okay. The painted eggs you collect can be upgraded to Bronze eggs once you collect 10. If you collect 10 bronze eggs then you can upgrade to a silver egg, eventually all the way to gold!
There are various items available to help you during your hunt. The Easter Basket will allow instant pickup of eggs and the Bunny Onsie and Ears will provide you an advantage via Egg Vision.
Lets see the Photos of all the Onsie’s out there!!!!!
All the farming, raiding and yes, the salt of the new year is over. As usual here is some images of some of the bases found on the server. There are some amazing designs out there.
The biggest story during this wipe was the successful shop managed and run by Moxi and QUIET but this is rust and the shop was raided.
The Next wipe brings server and client improvements and some new toys.
