Chaos makes for nice content material, however Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter is taking duty for the griefing drama within the OfflineTV Rust server and laying out penalties if it continues.
Rust is a survival multiplayer recreation and, as such, susceptible to PvP (Participant-versus-Participant) shenanigans — particularly when OfflineTV companions with over 50 high-profile streamers in a dedicated server. Whereas Valkyrae claims to have personally loved these antics, she acknowledges that issues could have gone too far following drama with Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s introduction to the OTV server.
With xQc (and his infamous chat) stirring up the pot and unnerving fellow streamers, Rae has spoken out and brought possession for persevering with to ask probably antagonistic creators to the unique server.
In a two-pronged tweet, 2020’s “Content material Creator of the Yr” let or not it’s identified that she shall be far more cautious about invites transferring ahead. And, ought to the untoward habits proceed, she is going to think about shutting down or resetting OfflineTV’s Rust server.
To be extra particular, I actually benefit from the chaos and the pvp facet of the sport however the best way persons are Negatively interacting with eachother is the difficulty. That’s all! Hoping issues flip round immediatelyAdvertisement

“The drama, folks suing me. I’m on TV speaking prefer it’s simply you and me.” Just like the lyrics to Kanye West’s “Can’t Inform Me Nothing,” drama can ensue when one treats the general public realm like a personal interplay. Whereas Valkyrae has personally loved the meat and spice in her server, she realizes that, as its invitees develop, she must take some public possession and rein within the…juice.
Most prominently, that juice turned bitter when xQc lashed out at a comparatively smaller streamer, ‘Ash_on_lol,’ who then clapped again with an much more profanity-laden response. A number of f-bombs and a request for xQc to not be “a f**king piece of s**t” later and Ash reportedly obtained demise threats from the Quebecois streamer’s passionate followers.
That consequence was seemingly sudden and prompted an apology from xQc, through which he promised to now not deal with folks within the server, significantly non-PvP creators, so poorly. And, whereas Valkyrae took no private subject along with his habits (as indicated by her response to his tweet), she later determined it was time to nip the drama within the bud.
I don’t assume killing is impolite, it’s a part of the sport :p the chaos has been enjoyable lol

As Valkyrae signifies in her totally different responses, she doesn’t discover the killing to be “impolite” and agrees that “the chaos has been enjoyable.” However she acknowledges that different views matter, particularly as a result of she’s the one who “wished to ask extra.”
As such, Rae has apologized to her “buddies who didn’t take pleasure in enjoying” and threatened to take motion if folks proceed to misbehave.
Based mostly on different replies in her Twitter thread, it seems that a full reset or shutdown of the server isn’t on the horizon simply but although. As a substitute, the group is trying to set up a PvP open world with devoted protected areas for these not feeling fairly as spicy.
