➡️ 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. Any item or BP will never be replaced due to too many people falsifying what was lost, please don’t ask.
➡️ Newbie Protection system only works inside your ORP/OGS radius.
➡️ Tribes who have protection on a map are not allowed to raid those who dont have protection on that map. Raiding while your tribe has protection will result in immediate removal of said protection and potentially further punishment. Please make a ticket if you would like to forfeit your protection in order to raid.
➡️ You may not attack tribes who have protection. IE Drain turrets, PVP tribes at their protected bases, set up a FOB before protection expires, etc.
➡️ Tribes with protection may defend their base within render distance of their base. IE clear fobs, destroy turrets that block them from leaving, etc.
➡️ Insiding is IP 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.
➡️ Your in-game name must be alphanumeric - no symbols or smiley faces.
➡️ Ferox level of 500 is the maximum allowed used in ANY PVP. Anyone caught via tribe log or video proof of them using any Ferox above level 500 will result in heavy punishment for the whole tribe.
➡️ Two bases per tribe per map. (This is two separate locations, within same vicinity, multiple buildings count as one) includes all dino pens. Any third base found will get automatically deleted without notice. A base is considered any structure, including teleporters, greenhouses, etc.
➡️ Absolutely no building within the mesh. Anyone found built within the mesh will be admin wiped immediately.
➡️ No building whatsoever @ any of the following locations:
- Wyvern egg nests, scar, Magmasaur Egg spawns, or wyvern cave
- Castle on Ragnarok near Viking Bay
- Player spawn locations
- Pearl Cave (Both Ragnarok and The Center)
- Lava Golem Cave
- Ice Queen Cave
- Lifes Labyrinth
- The Lair Cave

You must not block underwater drop spawns or preventing players from obtaining them(including where they spawn on Lava Island on The Center)
Any bases/structures found in these locations will be removed immediately.
Building in caves not specifically listed above is permitted.
➡️ 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, looting drops etc. Turrets are permitted to be placed during OSD's and Element Veins on Extinction. These turrets must be removed following the OSD/Element Vein.
➡️ 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 within 20 Foundations of a Base/Turret Tower or FOB.
➡️ 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. Air-trapping water dinos is considered outside of intended use and will result in punishment.
➡️ No building in water cracks. The underwater map spots where only a player/small dino can only fit.
➡️ 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 such as knocking yourself out, tek suit/glider suit access only, ptera c-spin at just the right spot, ziplines etc.
➡️ YOU MAY ONLY HAVE ONE FOB AT A TIME. This means an attacking tribe can leave their fob up at your base if they were raiding you, but cannot setup up a new fob on someone else until it is taken down.
➡️ NO teaming to raid a tribe or to come to a mutual aid defense of a tribe at their base. Raiding fobs, or attacking a tribe's fob is fine. You CAN leave your tribe and join another tribe so long as you do not exceed the current tribe limit.
➡️ On DUO servers, NO disrupting anyones raids in any fashion. No attacking fobs, sniping fobs etc.
➡️ 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 the structures being used do not create turret line of site shielding for the DINO itself. AKA dino needs to take damage from all sides. No making a "box" around a Dino or down the sides that is greater then 1 regular sized vanilla wall or ramp in length. Don't manipulate the rule to your liking. For example, placing dynamic pillars with behemoth hatchframes hanging off to create turret line of sight, or building a tunnel (poker) with a door at the end for placement of c4, is not considered legit.
➡️ NO Tunnel/Poker builds.
➡️ Tokens are limited to use/redemption before set stat limits, which increase throughout the season. Each stat can be tokened individually so it is possible to use HP, Stamina and Melee tokens on one dino. Any means to circumvent the current limit will be punishable, however if methods are reported via our Discord server, rewards may be given.
➡️ 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.
➡️ 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.
➡️ Punishments can include warnings, reduction of damage/harvest for your tribe, temporary ban or permanent ban (including HWID ban).

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.
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.
