This June marks 5 years that we’ve been in constant operation, starting with our first tiny Rust server with a handful of friends and little more than a dream of enjoying one last wipe together. Now, we’ve got multiple servers, multiple games, and we’re actively working to grow our community, our games, and our servers to bring the idea that gaming doesn’t have to be a toxic cesspool of humanity’s worst but rather, a place where we can come together, have fun together, and create positive, enjoyable memories of time spent together.
Celebrations during the month of June will come in the form of some great sales, a bunch of fun events, weekly games, and the introduction of our first physical awards. We’ll only be doing a single wipe for the month of June, but we will refresh our subscriber’s perks on the 19th, to make up for the wipe time! As an added perk for all of our subscribers, your tape amounts from your donations and subscriptions will be doubled, all June in Rust! In Conan, your subscription kits will have their cooldown timers reset and halved for the month!
– The Labyrinth! There will be a multi-level maze that you can explore and get lost in, wandering and enjoying at your convenience. Be careful which doors you open, as some will have explosive surprises behind! During the weekends, the maze layouts will be changed, and special loot will be added for brave explorers to win!
– The Scavenger Hunt! Several clues will be hidden in satchels and other out of the way places around the map. The first clue will be found at the server store, and whoever pieces together the clues and finds the prize first will score a huge cache of valuables!
– Tower Racing! Wednesdays and Saturdays, all month, we’ll be hosting our signature Rust game, where teams of 2-4 can exhibit all of their Rust skills, including gathering, building, and combat, to build the ultimate monument to their might! Each winning tower will be clad in armor and left as a monument for all to bear witness to the prowess of our winners!
– The Carpenter’s Arena! An arena for 3-player teams, featuring 2 players on each team with salvaged hammers and 1 player with a nail gun as they fight through the obstacles in the arena to find their enemies, poke them full of sixteen-penny holes, and maybe, just maybe, show them all who’s boss with the hidden chainsaw! The arena will be open and available all wipe for folks who wish to play the game at their own pace, and we’ll have hosted events with prizes each Saturday and Sunday.
– The Primitive Arena! An arena for solo players to gather primitive weapons from the floor of the arena and slaughter their foes in the ultimate last-player-standing contest of brutality! The arena will be open and available all wipe for folks who wish to play the game at their own pace, and we’ll have hosted events with prizes each Saturday and Sunday.
– The Castle Raid! We’ll be building a large, hard-to-breach raid destination for all who wish to raid, find loot, and take home spoils–or for those who want to wait for others to take the bait, and strike back as counter-raiders! The Castle will be initially stocked with low-grade loot of gear sets and tools, with more and more loot being added through the month, with juicy, juicy weapons, resources, and explosives available toward the end of the month.
– The server store will have pills and tape matched in price, allowing all players to enjoy the benefits of duct tape. Additionally, all tape awards will be doubled for our subscribers!
– We’ll be offering a limited number of lifetime subscriptions, allowing players to enjoy the benefits of different tiers of subscriber perks, across every game, every server, for as long as you have your Steam account. Each lifetime account will have a special title and role created on Discord

– We’re revealing our first piece of physical merchandise, the Raider’s Patch. Raider’s Patches will be made with sturdy reclaimed fabric and printed Serenity Valley Gaming logo, attached with safety pins. (If you prefer to actually stitch your patch onto something, there will be plenty of extra space around the edges for stitching!) Raider Patches will be available for purchase for $10 each, with shipping costs only occurring outside the US. Active subscribers enjoy a 10% discount for these purchases as well! Don’t worry! We’ll get pictures for this posted up as soon as possible!
– We’ll be hosting a screenshot contest, where users can take their best screenshot of Rust–they don’t have to be from this wipe–and share them on the blog. The best screenshot will be decided on by staff and a handful of community judges. The top 10 submissions will be featured on our blog for all to enjoy, and one lucky winner will receive a free 3-month subscription at the Settler tier to Rust!
– “Tell Us” testimonials: We’ll be giving out free months of subscription perks to either of our games for everyone who tells us about their experience! Write a 1-paragraph review or testimonial about your experience at Serenity Valley Gaming and receive a month of $10 subscriber perks on any of our games!
– “SVG & Me” Essay Contest: Write a short essay explaining why Serenity Valley Gaming is your home for online gaming. Essays need to be 1-3 pages, English, and in .txt or .doc format. Three winners will be chosen, with 2 runners-up receiving 6 months of $10 subscription, and the top winner receiving 1-year of our $15 subscription for any SVG game.
