 These rules are in place to help maintain a healthy PVP Community.* ​​


ABSOLUTELY NO RAIDING FOR THE FIRST 72 HOURS OF THE WIPE
PLAYERS BREAKING ANY OF THESE RULES COULD BE BANNED

USING ANY EXPLOIT ON OUR SERVER WILL BE GROUNDS FOR AN IMMEDIATE BANNING WITHOUT ANY EXPLANATION.

ADMIN ADVICE - In some cases Admins require screen shots or video of players breaking our rules in order to punish/ban a player/tribe, although this is very helpful in proving your case it isnt always 100% guaranteed the evidence you give us will be sufficient enough to prosecute the offending player/tribe.

General Behavior

Attitude
We really are glad to have happy players. But if you convince us you would be happier somewhere else
by verbally attacking the server or admins, we will help encourage you to find somewhere else with a
friendly ban.Please remember that having a cooperative attitude to the rules works better for everyone than arguingwith or trying to go around them.

Speech and Names
Don’t spew derogatory (e.g. racist, sexist) language on the server. Pleasecomments directly from an admin.

Griefing
No griefing is allowed in any form. This is a pvp server; but you shouldn’t make people's life hell withoutreason. Admins may rule excessive, repeated, and/or hostile actions to be a form of griefing.
Similarly popcorning items in now against the rules. It is up to players to prove to the admins that
popcorning happened. If we don't have conclusive evidence (in our eyes) we won't take action against
them. Lastly, missing loot you expected to find is not conclusive evidence. People can hide stuff.

Over encumbering Tamed Dinos
Do not over encumber a dino by grappling to it while you have an excessive amount of weight on you
due to the fact your wearing a back pack from the donation station, we are aware of how much weight
a player can put on themselves if they put every point into weight. Any player breaking this rule will be
subject to an immediate ban.

Abusing Glitches
No abusing glitches of any form. If you find one, talk with an admin about it. In particular, please do not
clip structures on a platform or a raft through another structure. Further, some mod effects are clearly
not intended. Don’t take advantage of them without asking first. Significant abuse will result in an
immediate ban.

PvP Rules

Open World
Everything outside the confines of a base and outside the warzone in an active raid counts as the open
world. Dinos in a non-enclosed dino pen are considered outside the confines of a base, unless the base
has raid protection and said dinos are behind signs.

Raid Rules
After the first 3 days of the wipe date, raiding may begin. You may raid up to 3 tribes in a 24 hour
period. A raid is removed from the raids you have done based on when you finish it, not when you start

it. Repeat raiding of much weaker tribes will be considered griefing.
This server considers raids to be an attempt to get goods inside structures at a base. Being sniped at
base, picked up and carried away, having dinos get killed from a distance, etc. do not count as raids.
Unless both raiders and defenders gree otherwise in public in game chat, 12 people may take part on
either side of a raid. (Total 24) This includes non-allied participants joining in the fray.
Raid as you want to be raided. Don't wipe someone and then cry about being wiped yourself. Do not
wipe a base completely unless you are looking to take over the land they have built on.
Structure spamming is not allowed in a raid by either side. Attackers and defenders may have up to 2
fobs for their side at once. If a fob needs moved, remove the beds from it and disable turrets to mark it
as being deconstructed. Only one fob may be in excess deconstruction phase at a time. Rebuilding
structures is not possible within a radius of a destroyed structure for 5 minutes.
All fobs and structures placed in a raid must be picked up when the raid is over. Begin doing so as soon
as you announce that you are finished raiding. Once you announce the raid is over the defending tribe
must allow you to remove the fob, if they dont provide the admins with proof that they continued to
attack you after you announced the raid was over, you may leave the fob up if they continue to attack
you after announcing you are done raiding.

Passive Dinos
Passive dinos do not have special protections on this server. But the status of dinos is considered when
looking at griefing. (Aggressive dinos are less significant than passive ones). Put your dinos in an
enclosure to avoid them getting sniped.

Raid Protection Rules
Raid protection will now be given for up to 5 days.
New Players, and Tribes that surrendered or took extremely serious damage during a raid at their
only/main base may request raid protection for the remainder of the purge period. This consists of signs placed around a base warning players that they may be banned for attacking whatever is behind the signs. Only a single base maybe protected at a time and no stuff from another tribe may be in that base during raid protection. Further protected tribes may not raid. If you are comfortable raiding, you don’t need protection. Lastly, by making a comment in tribe chat, taking down the signs, and personal
messaging an admin in discord you may end raid protection early.
Tribes may move the signs or bases during raid protection. They may not change their tribe name,
protect more than one base, land grab with the signs, or post anything other than the text on discord on the signs. (You can copy paste). You must take signs down when raid pro is up.
Raid protection does not apply to open world. You may PvP but if you attack someone first they may
follow you back. If they attack you first, getting to base is a successful escape.
Boats are not bases and will not be given raid protection. An enclosed dock area however may be. Boats may be destroyed during the building period.

Building

Structures
Tribes are allowed 2 land bases and one water base (may be on the shore). More will be considered
spam. We do not allow spam unless its edible and served in the Hawaiian fashion.
No undermeshing intentionally. No structure Glitching. No unreasonable structure spam.

Platform Saddles
Platform saddles may have one ramp, otherwise no building down. The driver and riders must be
shootable and pick-up-able by flyers, drivers and riders can not be covered, no more then 1 wall high
around the driver or rider and no more then 3 walls around the driver or rider. We may kill dinos in
violation of this rule and ban repeat offenders. Please ask if you think you have a clever build or don’t
know if it's in the rules. It just takes a screenshot. Only up to 2 manned turrets are allowed on platform saddles.
No raid dinos or rafts that block turrets from shooting at the driver. You can park them outside turret
range as a FOB if you so choose. In other words you need to tank turrets while raiding! No using
structures to get around that. Tek Shields, Teleporters, Transmitters and the like are not allowed on platform saddles, dinos or on rafts being used to raid.

Turrets
Turrets are only allowed at bases and fobs. Anywhere else will be considered random. If you are
assisting an ally attack or defend a base the tribes owning the fobs and the base should place the
turrets. This is to prevent confusion. You may not put auto turrets of any form on a platform saddle. Boats are ok.
Turret spam is not allowed because it causes lag, you may have a few hundred; but if it causes problems an admin will ask you to take a few down or will remove them themselves.

Other Structures/Spam
You are not allowed to spread structures outside your base to prevent fob placement, resource
respawning, or dino spawning. You are not allowed to leave teleport shacks around the map. If you have You must take down taming pens. Admins will if you don’t. Repeat offenders will be warned.

Tribe Rules
Tribes are now 8 players, you are however allowed to have 1allie per tribe with you. Tribe ORPs cannot
overlap, but you may build near each other. 200 foundations should keep ORPs from overlapping .
Shields from different tribes should not be stacked either. Each tribe is allowed 2 bases on land, and one base in the water (or bordering the water). You will be asked to remove excess bases and small shacks that do not function as bases. Should it be necessary for a tribe to split. The leaving members are entitled to a reasonable fair share ofgoods. The majority of players should keep the base. Leaving players should get most of their dinos,
some of the bps (not necessarily all the best or only the worst) and crafting structures to help set up a
new base. Raid pro is lost when merging into a tribe without raid protection. Raid protected tribes may not be merged into. Further allies and traders need to stay outside their base for the duration of raid
protection. Storing goods for an allied tribe will nullify your raid pro. Pretending to have it will get the
admin to oversee a surrender of your base.

We are adding a 200 dino tribe limit to reduce lag. Dinos may be placed in a vivarium (level 100 engram
[and cheaper than normal - no element]) to remove them from counting against this limit. They may be
taken out at any time. Dino inventories are destroyed NOT
DROPPED when storing them, so be careful. Dinos come out exactly as they were put in (minus stuff), so breeding timers and stats will be the same. Getting Admin Help and Donating You can get admin help in game or in discord. Please type instead of using voice and be direct. You don’t
need to ask if you can ask a question. We may be busy and we may be waiting to get you at a time we
are both on. The admins do run a PvE trading post on the server. It sells dinos and sometimes resources for other in game items.

Donations can be sent via paypal to [email protected] . Please include your in game name with the donation. We give small rewards to donators. $10 is worth 1000 coins (double the week of donating, 1000 per wipe for three months after). Coins can be used to buy blueprints, items that increase carry weight while equipped, and dinos. 1000 coins gets one of them. All items can be gotten through raids or taming wild dinos.

Banned Base Locations
Bases may not be built to block significant resource spots, obelisks, artifacts, or bosses. Also, do not
block cave/underwater loot drops. This includes a few in the deathsands region on Ragnarok. There
should be a good safety zone for people to get those drops.
