  • The server centers around a village that acts as a sort of safe zone for friendly players.
  • Survivors band together to protect the village from griefers.
  • The location of the village is constantly moving so the only way to find it is by meeting or contacting people in-game.

Another unique server, Iron Curtain has an interesting way of balancing loot hoarding and base mechanics.

  • All players on the server are given tents based on their group size. The main objective is to protect this tent.
  • Bases are indestructible except for on Saturdays so players can make time to protect their loot.
