Due to a fire that broke out in OVHcloud’s data center, multiple Rust Servers were destroyed. Here is everything you need to know.
Let’s start with the most important piece of information on this: nobody got hurt during this fire. Servers were destroyed and 12-year-olds got their feelings hurt, because “they spent hours on this game and now everything is lost,” but I think we collectively agree when I say: nobody gives a rat’s ass about those poops.
Here is the statement that Rust has given in regards to the fire:
Update:— Rust (@playrust) March 10, 2021
We've confirmed a total loss of the affected EU servers during the OVH data centre fire. We're now exploring replacing the affected servers.
Data will be unable to be restored.
Are Rust Servers Down?
However, despite this horrible thing happening, Rust was quick to get their servers back online and has been working hard on getting all of them up and running again.
A total of 25 servers have been destroyed in the fires, yet Rust has already managed to bring 21 of them back online.

So to each and everyone that is currently complaining about Rust not having back-up servers and that they wasted so much time on the game for all their stuff to be lost now:
Let’s all just be nice for once and be glad that nobody got hurt in this fire. Restore our faith in humanity today, alright?
