Rust’s streamer server shows the pitfalls of 50 roleplayers each having their own audience



Rust recently exploded in viewership on Twitch due to dozens of popular streamers flocking onto a single server to play together. The streams have been very popular, but not without drama. It turns out that a crowd of big personalities all performing for their own audiences at the same time can quickly turn into a disaster, at least from a roleplaying perspective.

Above is a clip of streamer Sodapoppin, who recently logged into the Rust server and headed to an arena to perform musical introductions for a number of 1v1 combat sessions that were scheduled. Also due to take place (at halftime) was a political debate and election to determine who should act as the server’s mayor. These events didn’t exactly get off to a flying start.
