    EliteArk Server Rules

      Rules can be added and changed or altered at any time, be sure to check up frequently.
      Repeated attacks on fresh spawns will get you banned without notice.

    Game Rules

    ➡️ No hacking or abusing any game bugs and exploits or plugin/mod bugs and exploits. Excludes Mesh Biting.
    ➡️ You are only allowed to change tribe name once per map per wipe cycle.
    ➡️ No head glitching using structures. You cannot build so you can shoot without being vulnerable to being shot yourself (i.e. crop plots, fridges, ramps, etc.)
    ➡️ Bases that have not had a tribe member render them within 72 hours get auto-decayed. No exceptions.
    ➡️ One character per player per cluster. No second accounts.
    ➡️ Any dino lost due to patches, lag, mods, bugs etc. will not usually be replaced. Dino replacement may be considered on a case by case basis. An admin will assess the situation and determine if it will be replaced via Discord Ticket. Any item or BP will never be replaced due to too many people falsifying what was lost, please don’t ask.
    ➡️ ORP can only be placed at your base, never at a fob. During the first 48 hours of a freshly wiped map this rule is not enforced.
    ➡️ PVE only works inside your ORP radius. You must place/set your ORP to benefit from PVE.
    ➡️ Tribes who have PVE on a map are not allowed to raid those who don’t have protection on that map. Raiding while your tribe has PVE will result in immediate removal of said PVE and potentially further punishment. The tribe leader can type /pvp in-game to end the PVE early. Once your PVE is disabled you cannot receive it again unless your tribe is badly raided.
    ➡️ You may not attack tribes who have PVE i.e. Drain turrets, PVP tribes at their protected bases, set up a FOB before protection expires, etc.
    ➡️ Tribes with PVE may defend their base within render distance of their base. IE clear fobs, destroy turrets that block them from leaving, clear structures that stop them from building, etc.
    ➡️ Insiding is HWID bannable across our network. Substantial evidence must be provided to show that insiding has taken place. WE DO NOT REPLACE ANY ITEMS STOLEN OR LOST DUE TO INSIDING. YOU INVITED THEM, YOU TRUSTED THEM. The tribe leader must give permission for you to take anything when leaving your tribe, even imprinted tames.Everything farmed, looted, tamed and bred while in a tribe belongs to the tribe.
    ➡️ Your in-game name and tribe name must be alphanumeric - no symbols or smiley faces.

    Building Rules

    ➡️ Three bases per tribe per map. (This is three separate locations. Multiple buildings within the same vicinity count as one). Any fourth base found will get automatically deleted without notice. A base is considered any structure, including teleporters, greenhouses, etc.
    ➡️ Absolutely no building within the mesh.
    ➡️ NO meshed structures or turrets. This includes meshed foundations, pillars, ocean platforms, etc. Your structures must be easily destroyed by an enemy placing C4 onto it. Mesh turrets are any turrets shooting through terrain (i.e. inside a cave to outside the cave). It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY that none of your turrets shoot through the mesh.
    ➡️ No building or aggressive dinos whatsoever @ any of the following locations:

    •  Wyvern egg nests, scar, Magmasaur Egg spawns, or wyvern cave
    •  Obelisks/City Terminals
    •  Player spawn locations
    •  Ragnarok Pearl Cave
    •  Ragnarok Lava Golem Cave
    •  Ragnarok Ice Queen Cave
    •  Ragnarok Lifes Labyrinth
    •  The Center Jumping Puzzle
    •  Genesis Volcanic Cave
    •  Crystal Isles Honey Cave
    •  All entrances and exits to caves listed above
    •  Extinction World Border (e.g. unfobbale locations above King Titan Terminal)
    •  Extinction OSDs or Element Veins
    •  Aberration surface and green surface entrances (red surface and blue surface entrances are allowed to be built in)
    •  Genesis - Mission Zones (including base locations ABOVE mission zones)

    You must not block underwater drop spawns or prevent players from obtaining them (including where they spawn on Lava Island on The Center, entrances to the Valguero deep sea and Crystal Isles tunnels)
    Any bases/structures/dinos found in these locations will be removed without warning.
    Building in locations not specifically listed above is permitted.
    ➡️ NO teaming through building. One tribe per cave. If your tribe's base is benefitting from defences of another tribe then both tribes will be punished (i.e. only one tribe in Center North Ice Cave)
    ➡️ No placing turrets down while looting drops or for any potential spawning drops. No placing turrets down to protect yourself in open world pvping or while taming dinos. IE Farming, taming, looting drops, OSDs, Element Veins, etc.
    ➡️ No placing any structure or turret to harass enemy bases (when raiding is not happening), future building spots. Random buildings/turrets found will be structure wiped from the map on case by case basis. If you invite someone new to your tribe, please make sure of the above.
    ➡️ ZERO SPAM OF STRUCTURES UNLESS AT BASE AND FOB. NOT IN OPEN WORLD PVP, RANDOM ETC.
    ➡️ Spamming of structures is only allowed at a base or fob. Base/Turret Tower spam is allowed in a 20 foundation radius. A turret tower must have at least 40 turrets to count as a turret tower for extending spam radius. Fob spam is less strict but must be reasonable. A fob must have at least 10 turrets and be within render distance of enemy structures to count as a fob. EXCESSIVE SPAM will NOT be tolerated. Admins will deem what is excessive.
    ➡️ No using vacuum chambers on land. Furthermore, no using them outside their designed intended use to be able to build underwater or to block radiation damage on the Aberration map. At least one side of the vacuum must remain closed so the chamber can be legitimately damaged/destroyed. Floating vacuum structures underwater are allowed as long as they are FULLY underwater. Air-trapping water dinos is considered outside of intended use and will result in punishment.
    ➡️ No using any building exploits in order to gain foundational support from anything other than the terrain itself.
    ➡️ No building in areas you need tricks to get into. Tricks include knocking yourself out, tek suit/glider suit access only, ptera c-spin at just the right spot, grappling hook, ziplines, only megalania/pelagornis/ovis access, etc.

    Raiding Rules

    ➡️ YOU MAY ONLY FOB ONE TRIBE AT A TIME ON EACH MAP. This means an attacking tribe can leave their fob up at your base if they were raiding you and intend to return to the raid, but cannot set up a new fob on someone else until it is taken down. Fobs for any purpose other than attacking an enemy base will be removed without warning.
    ➡️ Tribe name and tribe members must be the same on all maps. Trading, PVE (i.e. OSDs/Ascensions/etc) and open world PVP with multiple tribes is allowed. If you wish to raid or defend with a different tribe you must leave your old tribe on all other maps.
    ➡️ NO teaming to attack or defend a tribe at the same base at the same time. Raids are 1 tribe vs 1 tribe. Any interference by a 3rd tribe at a raid is considered teaming. Proof of interference can include screenshots, clips and/or tribe logs. It must be clear the interference is at the raid.
    ➡️ NO counter raids. NO disrupting anyones raids in any fashion. No attacking fobs, sniping fobs etc. You must have a fob placed to benefit from this rule (At least 10 turrets within render of enemy structures).
    ➡️ During the first 48 hours of wiped maps Teaming is enforced less strictly in the context of fighting for a base location.
    ➡️ NO tunnel builds. This includes building foundations below or above a base in order to build walls up/down and then tunnel with ceilings and walls to the base walls in order to avoid turrets while negating enemy building radius AKA the exploit that allows you to build next to an enemy building when you aren't supposed to. Building a tower/structure next to a base for the purpose of soaking turrets is permitted.

    Platform Dino Rules

    ➡️ You may block the rider provided your structures do not create turret line of sight to prevent the dino from taking damage. The only structures allowed on platform dinos are:
    - Foundation, Walls (1 high only), Ceilings, Doorframes, Doors, Ramps, SS Vaults
    No making a "box" around a Dino or down the sides that is greater than 1 regular sized vanilla wall or ramp in length.
    ➡️ NO Tunnel/Poker builds. Tunnel builds are where the structures on a platform dino let you destroy structures without being shot (i.e. with a door or picking up a wall/ceiling - NOT when you can safely dismount and place C4). Poker builds are where you ride a platform dino into enemy structures using explosives to destroy their structures.

    Other Rules

    ➡️ Destroying structures through the mesh is forbidden. This includes using Meks or Titans. Using Gigas or other dinos to attack tames/players is fine. Build in rat holes or easily mesh hittable locations at your own RISK.
    ➡️ Stacking dinos is forbidden. This includes using snow owls, transmitter, raising babies on top of each other or other methods to place many dinos on top of each other due to the lag it creates.

    Punishments

    ➡️ Punishment for breaking the rules is at the sole discretion of the Admins. Punishments will differ based upon the rule you broke, your intent and if you have broken rules before.
    ➡️ The whole tribe will be punished for an individual's actions when the person responsible is unclear.
    ➡️ Punishments can include warnings, reduction of damage/harvest for your tribe, character deletion, admin dino/structure wipe, EliteArk currency wipe (points/lootboxes/coins/etc), temporary ban or permanent ban (including HWID ban).
    ➡️ False reports, especially ones that waste significant admin time, will lead to punishment for the reporting player.

    Notice Someone Breaking These Rules?

    For enforcing the rules the Admins rely on:

    • information provided by players in tickets;
    • information provided by plugins such as Mesh Police; and
    • information they collect themselves such as via Spectator Mode.

    If you notice someone breaking a rule please make a Ticket via Discord to report it. For your ticket to be actioned quickly it is vital that you provide as much evidence as possible to support your claim. For example, screenshots or video showing what the player is doing. A screenshot showing the in-game name of the offending tribe/players. Etc. If insufficient evidence is provided the admins often cannot take any action so please provide to much information rather than too little.

    Been Banned?

    If you are banned it is only after significant evidence has been received by the admins. Bans are not made lightly and very rarely by mistake. If you wish to discuss a ban please make a ticket via Discord including your Steam ID and the admins can discuss it with you.
