In the beginning (enter Optimist Prime voice)
It all began in the spring of 2016 out of the inability to find a server that, 1) did not allow PVP, 2) had great mods and most of all, 3) did not have admins who took advantage of their admin credentials.
How do you fix that? You start your own server.
So we did. We rented a server and then learned of all the limitations that came with rented servers.
How do you fix that? You buy your own server to run your games on.
We took the leap and made a moderate investment into our own server machine.
This journey began with Rust and then, over time, eventually expanded to other survival games. It didn't take long to realize we needed a centralized hub in which to communicate with each other. The PVEGAMING domain was secured and a website was formed on the enjin platform. This would eventually have it's limitations so, just like we did with the game servers, we got away from enjin and we went to our own ground-up website. PVEGAMING had finally come into it's own and we have never looked back.
We were finally truly liberated and 100% self-reliant with our own games, configured the way we wanted them. We could now do everything we wanted to do with our servers and now, our website. We would eventually get on Discord and utilize that system for our primary means of communication. So far, Discord has had far more capabilities than we could dream of. So we don't predict that we will be starting our own chat/messaging program anytime soon 🙂
So what is PVEGAMING?
We are a community of gamers who primarily play open world, sandbox-type survival games. These games typically start you out with nothing, leaving you to make important decisions along the way that will have a direct effect on your ability to make it in the harsh environment. Along your journey, you will have to collect the various resources that will give you the ability to craft the tools, weapons and building components that will be key to your long term survival.
These types of games are primarily PVP, meaning "Player Versus Player". This means that not only do you have to survive the elements, but you also have to survive other players. This has both good and bad aspects to it. The notable downside of PVP is the toxic encounters that plague most of the servers out there. Many players are turned off by this style of gameplay, often times abandoning the game all together.
This is where we come in - We host many of those same survival games, but only PVE, meaning "Players Versus Environment". This is a game mode where players focus on surviving only against the environment around them and not against other players. This is typically controlled by internal game configurations or 3rd party mods that prevent player on player damage, meaning player a can try to hit, shoot or bludgeon another player and nothing will happen. This game mode allows players to really experience all the game has to offer, without having to constantly look over their shoulder. This creates a very laid back and chill gaming environment that many people have come to enjoy.
We proudly host a large selection of the most popular survival games to the public, on our own equipment and infrastructure. All absolutely free. As with any large community, we do have rules and guidelines. We hold the conduct on our servers at a very high standard. Our servers are for players of all ages. Our active admins & moderators ensure that the game is always running and updated, as well as keeping check on the conduct of the players who play on them.
