As much as I love to play video games on my own to relax, I’m constantly in search of good multiplayer games to either play with my family or to play with my community on Twitch. It can be hard to find games for my community on Twitch since not only do we all have very different tastes in video games, but there are also a good amount of games that do not support enough player slots for everyone who wants to play.
More recently our community has become much larger on Twitch, so I’ve been looking for games that can be hosted on Dedicated Servers as not only do I need games that can host a number of players, but our community is so global that running servers off my computer always has a bit of latency and lag, even though I have a decent build and phenomenal internet. So, I was very happy to see that V Rising supports dedicated servers and that my choice for host Nodecraft, actually hosts those servers.
Though most players will be using GPortal as that is the promoted host on V Rising, the servers are pretty up and down and I’ll be quite frank, there have been times where I literally could not kill a single mob before the server completely lagged and became unplayable. So, if you’re in the same boat and are looking for a new Host, I strongly recommend using Nodecraft. For information on how to set up your server settings when using a dedicated server please check out this post.
Now, to get my scatter brain back on track let’s delve into how many players can play on a server in V Rising!
HOW MANY PLAYERS CAN BE ON A SERVER IN V RISING?
While a lot has to do with how good your server is, players will be able to host a maximum of 60 players in V Rising at a time. Note: Due to the fact that players are technically always loaded into a server, even if they are offline, you cannot have more than 60 members of a server unless you kick a previous player out.
Due to this, players will want to make sure that they are regularly checking up on whether members are active on the server or not so they can kick them off the server.
HOW MANY PLAYERS CAN BE PART OF A CLAN IN V RISING?
Whether a player is on a server filled with 60 players or is on a server that has fewer, players will be able to set up their server to allow a maximum of 20 players in a single Clan. While Clans are extremely useful for allowing players to team up together to gather resources together or kill bosses, Clans are not absolutely necessary as players can still team up with each other even if they are not in the same Clan.
Players who are looking for a non-competitive play-through of V Rising should always load their game in PVE as soon as the PVP setting is on, you may get into situations where players may try to loot each other’s Castles or destroy bases.
Realistically both versions of the game are very fun, it just depends on what gets you more excited. The fear of being taken over or the simple progression of V Rising.
