I think we should give Rust a try as an ops night game. This is why:
The server we've been on has a large population and almost everyone is a dick, thus they are all targets. I feel this would be good for those of you who like to indiscriminately kill other players in this sort of game.
The more of us, the more raiding we can do of the other big bases. There are currently at least two large groups, one of which ran us out of our previous base and who need some serious comeuppance. The second large group is going to mess with us eventually and will need some preemptive comeuppance sooner rather than later. The latter group is apparently just 4 guys, who apparently never sleep. Or work.
The server wipes in various ways throughout the month so eventually things get reset, but not all at once. This adds variability to gameplay and prevents certain large groups from being overpowered.
