Rust Rules

Player Rules

Rust is an extremely dynamic environment, and every possible situation cannot be spelled out in black and white.
If you find yourself in a situation which is not listed but feels wrong, please reach out via TDAGaming Teamspeak, or
Many of these offenses will receive a warning first, but some warrant outright bans.

1. Hacking
If reporting a player you suspect of this, please try to supply as much evidence as possible.

2. Ban Evasion
Players caught circumventing a ban will have their new account(s) banned unless the original ban is reversed.
Hacker/Banned Player association

If a player is game banned or banned from TDAGaming server for any reason they are not allowed to evade that ban and play again on a new account.

When we catch players doing this they will be banned again for Ban Evasion.
Associating with these players on a new account, can and often will result in a ban for individuals or an entire team, depending on the circumstances.

We do not expect people to know the complete history of every individual they play with at any point.
However, when clear and indisputable proof of players helping others evade is available to moderators, the involved player(s) will face a ban from all TDAGaming servers as well.

3. Toxic Behavior & Asshattery
Aggressive behavior is a part of normal gameplay in Rust, toxic behavior is when this crosses the line into actions that go above and beyond.
A prime example of this would be repeatedly using racial slurs in chat.

4. Offensive Material
Offensive material is a very subjective arena. Signs depicting bigotry or offensive slurs can potentially be removed by Moderators without warning, and potentially; further action(s) may ensue.

5. Glitching
Glitches may happen in any game, and as such, we do not police most glitch exploitation.
The only currently enforced ongoing glitch is the building of bases inside of rocks.

6. Real Life Threats
To know the severity of the threat, it is important to understand the context behind the statement.
For example, if someone says they’re going to “f*** someone’s mom” in all chat, it’s obvious that’s not a real threat.
If the player is talking about tracking them down in real life or swatting them, please report them.

7. Doxing
Doxing is the act of releasing the personal information of another player.
This can include any real life information such as names, addresses, phone numbers, etc.
Players found to be doing this will be evaluated as to the severity, but ultimately, offenses of this nature are grounds for an immediate ban.

8. Server / Admin Hating
We take pride in the vetting of our staff however mistakes do happen.
When suspicions of abuse arise we want to address them in a productive manner.
Ranting in all chat does nothing to address the problem and may result in Moderation response.
If you suspect admin abuse, please contact a member of our Owners team via email
All reports of abuse are kept strictly confidential regardless of outcome.

If you’ve been banned and would like to appeal, send a mail to, you might be asked to join Teamspeak.

9. Whining

Never ask staff for items, VIP packages, sometimes we might give some items or a VIP package. Mainly on server events.

We choose who we want to have in our staff. Don’t ask for a staff position.

10. Stached below foundations

It’s not alowed to place a foudtion on top of a loot container. you can’t remove the foundation.

11. Advertisements

It’s not alowed to make any advertisements on the server unlease an admin or owner has approved this

Staff Rules
TDAGaming staff rules apply to all active Trainees and Moderators, regardless of tenure.

If you feel a member of TDAGaming staff has abused their power in any way, email

Moderators are here to help
First and foremost, moderators are here to maintain the context of the server and help players. This includes answering questions, engaging with players in positive ways, removing toxic players / hackers, helping out fresh spawns, and running community events.

Playing as a moderator
Aside from community events, moderators on TDAGaming servers do not participate in normal gameplay on their moderator accounts. Instead, we ask that moderators use an alternate account to experience the full range of Rust gameplay.
