Do not inflict any form of misconduct such as attempts at dictatorship or blackmail. Stay away from language that is harmful, unlawful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, homophobic, racist, sexually explicit, or ethnically offensive. Encouragement of self harm will also not be tolerated. Yes, this is PVP, and yes ARK gets toxic at times, but if situations get out of hand and start discouraging people from playing on the cluster, the situation will be reviewed and dealt with accordingly. Keep your trash talk in the proper channels and game-oriented.

3.4 No Insiding
Insiding is strictly forbidden. Be thoughtful when choosing a tribe leader as you may not leave a tribe and take items without tribe leader’s consent.

3.5 No Popcorning/Despawning
Do not popcorn/despawn/destroy/demolish during raid, especially when facing imminent base destruction. Preventing tribes from any deserved loot is forbidden.
3.6 No Teaming

Trading or public teleporting is also prohibited during raid scenarios.
3.7 Open World Third Party Rule

You are not allowed to counter raids. All raids must be 1 tribe vs 1 tribe. Any attempt to grief or counter an attacking tribe while a raid is active will be considered teaming. You are allowed to watch without interfering and you are allowed to attack the attackers’ other bases. If there is PVP around someone’s base, do not interfere.
*Note: If a fob is inactive (not rendered) for longer than 8 hours, it is no longer an active raid and can be wiped.
*Note: The only way to enforce this rule correctly is to submit recording of the third partying tribe. So if you want to be 100% safe, record your raids.
3.9 PVE Teaming Rule
PVE is considered Boss fights, missions, reaper impregnating, and PVE teaming IS allowed. If you are actively PVE teaming with other tribes and a 3rd party occurs, you are allowed to team and defend yourselves together.

3.16 No ORP on FOBs
You are not allowed to put ORPs on any fobs that are in render distance of any of the target’s structures. You ARE allowed to put an ORP on a main fob IF it you don’t render ANY of the target’s structures, spam included.

3.18 No PVP-Timer Refreshing
You may not keep a tribe’s ORP on cooldown without active pvp. You must actively be raiding or griefing, and trying to progress in PVP. Tagging a dino/structure to keep a tribe on PVP timer is strictly forbidden. If someone does it to you, please record and submit ticket.
3.19 NPP/Raid Protection Rules
You MAY NOT grief players who have New Player Protection active. Griefing consists of but is not limited to; using building tricks to mess with new players, sniping new players outside of their base, killing new players’ tames at their base, not allowing new players to come outside of their base, placing turrets by their base, etc. Open world is always fair game.
NOTE: Players under NPP, it is YOUR responsibility to let the griefers know you have NPP and ask them to leave. If it happens to you, please submit a ticket with proof (recording/screenshots).

3.22 No Disallowed Dinos on Aberration
Any tribe caught using dinos on aberration that are usually disallowed on ab will be punished with a full map dino wipe without warning. It is a very rare bug that will immediately be punished if abused. If you see any non-aberration dinos, please report them immediately.
3.23 Merged Tribe Break-Up Rules
When a tribe decides to break up, the tribe leader must ALWAYS give the previously merged tribe enough time to take ALL of their previously owned dinos, items, and structures. If there is ANY confusion or mediation is needed when merged tribes decide to split, please contact an admin. If a leader simply kicks all the merged players without giving the players the fair time or deserved loot, it MAY be considered scamming.
3.24 NO Titans in ORP
If you tame any titan, you MAY NOT put them inside an ORP. That includes Extinction Titans as well as Titanosaur.
3.25 No Mesh Biting or Hitting
No biting through mesh with dinos, or hitting through mesh with meks or titans.
4.1 Three Limited Spots Per Tribe
Limited spot list can be found below. Alpha of the cluster is the only exception to this rule, and is allowed to have 4 limited locations. Upon raiding a limited location, you are allowed to attempt to sell the spot for the next 48 hours. After 48 hours, you have to pick up your fob and all structures around the Limited Spot.
4.2 No meshing/mesh building
You are not allowed to have any structures inside of the mesh or in any areas where building isn’t intended. A part of the structure must ALWAYS be visible. You are not allowed to enter unintended game world areas via any mesh method.
4.3 No building in spawn points, nests, wyvern scars, mission zones, or banned locations
You may find the list of banned locations below. Do not build at any spawns, dino egg nests, mission zones, gen 2 mission areas or banned locations, UNLESS actively farming or utilizing the location for PVP. Any structures found on these points will be removed without warning and may lead to punishment. Please make sure you pick up after yourself.
Note: Building at gen 2 terminals OR mission zones is strictly prohibited.
4.4 No blocking characters with structures
You cannot place structures on top of you or another player, making the character model completely concealed, immobilized, or invulnerable. This rule does NOT apply to dinos.
4.5 No illegal racers, quetzals, or other illegally built platform dinos or skiffs
You may not completely conceal your dino with platform structures to stop them from getting shot by turrets from more than 2 sides. Hatchframe dinos are still allowed.
4.6 Rat Hole Rules
No building in locations where a player is required to KO, use a chair, use a dino, use a zipline, or anything along those lines to enter. Simply put, if you can’t walk or swim into a spot, don’t build there. If there is any doubt about a spot, please submit a ticket and ask before building.
4.7 No Team Building
You may not build bases close enough to other tribes where you provide mutual defenses to one another. An example would be building in the same cave, or having both tribes’ turrets covering the others.
4.8 Spam Rules
IMPORTANT: For a base you need a minimum of 26 structure (not counting ORP structure). Then you have a normal decay of 16 days. Anything less than 26 buildings in a radius of 10 foundations will decay more quickly.Fast decay = 2 days
Turret towers can extend spam by 20 ground foundations , this way several can be placed
This way we can keep our servers clean, and avoid as much lag as possible by cleaning up
4.9 NO ORP Without Full Base
You are NOT allowed to ORP base locations unless you are ACTUALLY actively building a base. A base must have turrets, crafting stations, all the essentials, as they are easily available even to new players. You are not allowed to simply GATE off locations, put an ORP down, and log off. Holding a spot without an actual base will result in the location being dev wiped without warning.
