If you want some randoms to play with, your best bet is to check the Meeting Room subforum along the right side -->; Alternatively check the Servers section.

Originally posted by Early Access Blurb from the store page: What the developers have to say:
“7 Days to Die thrusts players into the aftermath of the fall of civilization with only their wits and bare hands to survive. In this continually evolving title currently in alpha stage development, players must explore the open world alone-or-with friends to build tools, weapons and shelter against the dangers of the reanimated dead, infected wildlife and the world itself.”

Originally posted by MetalMastodon:That is pretty literally the definition of Griefer, though.

I feel that the standard for what is considered a "griefer" now a days has been put wayyyyy too low. Coming from Rust and being called a "griefer" just for KOS or offline raiding..... the term literally has no meaning anymore. It used to be that a griefer meant you were literally harassing someone, not leaving them alone for hours or days on end. Now all you need to do to be a griefer is not let people live. Sad

I get enough stress and action from zombies beating at my door and the time crunch of the next horde night without also having to constantly worrying that I'll log back in to my base having explosion holes in it, and all my chests emptied of anything valuable.Originally posted by Shurenai: That is pretty literally the definition of Griefer, though.

The definition from Dictionary.com:
an online game player who intentionally spoils the game for other players
So yes, To a player that does NOT enjoy their base being offline raided, and who does NOT enjoy getting killed at random, A player doing those things to them spoils the game for them; Ergo the offending player is a griefer, from the perspective of that theoretical player.
It is absolutely a subjective term; That I will not contend. But it very much falls within the literally accepted definition of the word.
