Pvp servers = dead by people double teaming you lmao

PVE 40 players on server barely see anyone or.hear them.

Mite aswell just play solo with custom settings.

Btw i play this game solo and dont have any interest in team up with any random online.

Learn more of the game, building designs, and find otherwise interesting build locations to consider when server hopping.

There is indeed little point to go online for PVE IMO, unless you want a more lively world. I've noticed some servers have all their population up north and some have populated newbie rivers.

I sometimes play on PVP servers for the avoidance challenge. I'm not judging the people who go to the river for the explicit purpose of pointlessly killing newbs, any PVP game is going to have people going for the low hanging fruit.

They usually don't follow you further then is convenient for them, so running away is a perfectly valid tactic. If they do follow I allow myself to be killed. They have to walk all the way back while I simply respawn, meaning I am assured of them not being close for a while.

Still, there will always be people who get a kick out of trying to annoy you as much as possible. Can't be helped. Just unfavourite servers where this is so common it becomes annoying. Or just play solo / co-op.
Kept you waiting, huh?

To each their own, but official servers are always so damn full, so there are plenty of reasons for a lot of people. I do both online and offline myself.

Lol yeah. People always try to talk to me and I just jump around because I don't hear them.

If you don't know, this game's voice chat is proximity. So you gotta be within a few foundations to hear someone.

Ditto on what the above poster said. I've played 10 different online games so far and haven't met a single human player yet. And for the last few games I didn't even try to build anything. I just ran around trying to find some, anyone. lol

Adding a chat box is debatable. But for PvE at least, there is no reason not to show the other players on the map.
