What is a Rust Forced Wipe?

As the Rust development team continue updating and improving Rust they release fixes and features every month, during this update server owners and players need to update their versions of Rust to take advantage of these fixes and features. As there’s often a lot of changes the servers are forced to wipe their map data so, as its a time consuming nightmare to restore backed up player data onto a wiped map, on most servers all players will wake up naked on spawn beach with nothing but a rock and a torch after a forced wipe. Blueprints are not always cleared by default on Force Wipe, however many server owners choose to wipe these too to keep the gameplay fresh.
