Important Notes:

    ADMINS ARE ONLY REQUIRED TO ATTEMPT CONTACT W/ YOUR TRIBE IN DISCORD when issues arise requiring communication between the Tribe & Admins.
    • It is recommended that you request a Tribe Discord "role" (via the proper Discord channel) at the minimum. Tribe text & voice channels available upon request.
    • Without a Tribe 'role' at the minimum,   Admins will resolve any issues without your input,  at their discretion (provided attempts to contact you fail).
    Tek is unlocked for all players at Level 100.
    • No bosses required.
    • Element is craftable at level 100.
    Offline Raid Protection (ORP) provided via Offline Guard System (OGS) mod - engram available at level 1.
    • Tribes may have Two OGS pillars that can protect small areas.
    • OGS pillars will Auto-Decay 96 hrs after the last tribe member logs off the server.  Log in or lose the protection.
    • OGS does NOT stop enemies or wild dinos from entering the protective bubble.
    • It is recommended that you enable your turrets to stay on during the ORP buff period - toggle turrets via OGS pillar menu.
    • You must pick what you want to protect. Structures & Dinos in the bubble are immune from offline raiding.
    • Anything outside the bubbles can still be offline raided, so plan your defenses well.
    The Hope Map does NOT have any cave loot.  Only the outdoor beacons.
    • Outdoor beacons are NOT modified to provide cave loot.
    • Our other maps have cave loot.

the community

PvP in our community does NOT mean 'official server' PvP.

Our community is more focused on long term gameplay vs seeing who can wipe who first. World PvP is highly encouraged. Raiding is expected and welcomed but our community does not support the complete and constant wiping of tribes. Offline raiding is also part of the game, but his highly frowned upon by the majority of this community.

Server Rules

GENERAL RULES
Any Tribe that starts with [ADMIN SAFE] OR [ADMIN OWNED] is 100% off-limits to be raided by anyone.  
  • These are Tribes that admins have temporarily taken over for various reasons.
  • Attempting to falsely use these tags, or impersonate an Admin, will result in a complete Tribe wipe and ban.
  • Violating this rule will result in a complete Tribe wipe by us.
Any exploiting, duping, botting, macro farming, etc will result in a ban on all of our servers.
  • Any form of glitching (hiding inside rocks, plant X, hiding or building inside any waterfalls/rocks to build or shoot out from) will result in you being banned.
  • Bases that are built under the mesh or build inside glitched areas (holes in the waterfalls on Center, Glitched rocks on Ragnarok, Metal boxes/artifacts on Aberration etc) will result in all tribe structures being deleted when found by a script.
Griefing / harassing new low level players will not be tolerated.
  • Repetitively killing the same new player(s) over & over will be viewed as griefing.
  • If logs indicate you kill new players more than you change your underwear, it will be viewed as griefing.
  • Not allowing new players or tribes to progress by constantly obstructing their ability to farm & tame will be viewed as griefing.
  • Allow new players room to grow & become competitive. Killing the competition before they can compete is cowardly & lacks gamesmanship.
  • Any form of griefing new players will result in severe consequences,including up to a permanent ban.
Tribes voted 'toxic' by the community will have ZERO protection & no cooldowns to protect them.
  • Being overly aggressive in Chat or discord will likely get you designated toxic.
  • Raiding defenseless bases continuously will likely get you designated toxic.
  • Enjoy the game. If you want to be an asshole to everyone in game, go to official servers.
Tribe names must be the same on all servers in a cluster & players must belong to the same tribe across the cluster.
  • Non-matching Tribe names within the clustered maps be considered as intending to hide.
  • Changing Tribe names is allowed, however it must be done 48hrs prior to PVP / Raiding, or 48hrs post-PVP / Post-Raid - and updated across the clusted maps within 12 hours.
  • Changing names with the intent to hide who you are will get your tribe wiped.
Tribe and Dino names are NOT permitted to be changed if you PvP or raid.  
  • Changing names within 48 hrs post-PVP or post-Raid will be considered as intending to hide.
  • Changing names with the intent to hide who you are will get your tribe wiped.
You may not cage / incapacitate any player for more than 15 minutes.
  • If you are being held captive, you should post in GLOBAL CHAT when you are first being caged.  This gives the admins a timestamp to know how long you have been held.  Without any solid basis for knowing when you were grabbed, the admins will not intervene.
  • If you have been held longer than 15 minutes, AND you correctly posted when you were first grabbed in chat, you should then contact an admin in Discord.
  • Catch & release or kill them.
  • Repetitively caging or incapacitating the same player is considered griefing - mix it up with different targets.
No boxed in or armored platform dinos. No covered riders on any platform dinos.
  • Platform dinos must keep the front 1/3 of the platform 100% free of any structures.
  • No structures may be built down from a platform.
  • Ramps used for transportation are okay, but still must NOT block the front 1/3 of the Platform.
  • Platform dinos in violation of these guidelines at any time will be killed without warning.
  • Platform dinos in violation of these guidelines during a raid will result in severe penalties to include any combination of: tribe dino wipe, forfeiture of all tribe inventory (items, mats, BP's), a minimum 48 Hour ban of all tribe members.
Any player joining a tribe with the intent of sabotaging them for another tribe (aka 'insiding') will be permanently banned from our community.
  • Everything earned within a tribe, belongs to the tribe.
  • If you chose to leave a tribe, you do not get to take items or dinos you feel belong to you.
  • Admins will NOT replace anything lost to an "insider" - set tribe permissions, do not recruit unknowns.
No foundation spamming is allowed.  You can not claim any land you can't occupy with players and dinos immediately.
  • You can not block off an entire area of the map because you might 'someday' want to build on it.
  • We expect your base perimiter to be in line with your current or short term abilities to expand.
No blocking access (via building, dinos etc) to any obelisks, loot/artifact caves.  
  • Do NOT attempt to build bases in or store/breed dinos of any kind in any kind of loot/artifact cave.
  • Admins will structure wipe your tribe if you're structures are found in these zones.
  • Admins will dino wipe your tribe if your dinos are found in these zones.
Tribes are NOT permitted to use dinos as vaults.
  • This is to prevent the need to kill every dino during a raid to find loot.
  • Tribes caught doing so will forfeit all of your items, BPs, etc.
BASES & OUTPOSTS
Tribes may ONLY have one Main Base, one Outpost (about 4x4x4) & one Water Pen per map.
  • This is to keep structure lag down on our maps.
  • Turrets on outposts must be located ON the structure (hatchframes are fine) or on the ground directly next to it (within one foundation).\
  • We limit the amount of stuctures within range to reduce lag on our map. Our settings are 2500 structures within x range.  Plan accordingly.   (Note that this does NOT mean that you have a hard limit of 2500 structures TOTAL.  It only limits how many in rendering distance, like turrets).
You may not leave any taming pens, spikes, traps etc out in open world (Anything not at your base or outpost).
  • Admins have no responsibility to warn tribes in violation of this rule.
  • Tribes in violation of this rule will be structure wiped.
  • You may report Taming pen violations in Discord, under the Ark Server Support channel - you must provide debug camera coordinates and map name, or your report will be treated as spam and deleted.
TURRETS
Turrets are permitted at bases, outposts & rafts only. NO turrets may be placed or used in open world (pvp & taming).
  • Turrets can NOT be used in open world to tame/farm wild dinos (including milk/egg farming).
  • Turrets can NOT be placed in open world for World PvP.
  • Turrets on outposts must be located ON the structure (hatchframes are fine) or on the ground directly next to it (within FIVE FOUNDATIONS).
  • ANY OUTPOSTS BUILT WITH THE INTENT OF BEING USED TO FARM WILD DINOS (E.G. WYVERN MILKING) WILL RESULT THE COMPLETE WIPE OF YOUR TRIBE.
  • ANY TURRETS IN OPEN WORLD WILL RESULT IN THE COMPLETE WIPE OF YOUR TRIBE, AND THE POSSIBILITY THE WHOLE TRIBE BEING BANNED.
raiding
Tribes are permitted to raid once per 24 hours. Pick your targets wisely.
  • The 24hr cooldown begins  AFTER  your raid ends.
  • ANY destruction or damage at a base/outpost/water pen is considered a raid.
  • Sniping dinos at any base/outpost/waterpen is considered a raid.
  • Violation of any raiding rule will be penalized severely; Penalties may include any combination of: tribe dino wipe, forfeiture of all tribe inventory (items, mats, BP's), a minimum 48 Hour ban of all tribe members.
YOUR TRIBE & Tribes within YOUR ALLIANCE can NOT raid the same tribe twice in 72 hours unless they counter raid you.
  • The 72hr cooldown begins  AFTER  your raid ends.
  • You and your allies are  100% RESPONSIBLE for communicating WHAT TRIBE & WHEN  they were last raided by someone in your alliance.
  • AGB provides TRIBE and ALLIANCE text & voice channels in AGB Discord at your request - we suggest using them.
  • Violation of any raiding rule will be penalized severely; Penalties may include any combination of: tribe dino wipe, forfeiture of all tribe inventory (items, mats, BP's), a minimum 48 Hour ban of all tribe and/or alliance members.
Our community frowns upon complete wiping of tribes. Doing so may get you designated as a 'toxic' tribe by our community.
  • There is generally no reason to kill every dino a tribe owns (dinos are not allowed to be use for vault storage).
  • Farming dinos in particular should be left if they do not impede upon a raid.
  • Violation of any raiding rule will be penalized severely; Penalties may include any combination of: tribe dino wipe, forfeiture of all tribe inventory (items, mats, BP's), a minimum 48 Hour ban of all tribe members.
A raid may not exceed 8 hours total

  • Raids start the MINUTE you are seen setting up an FOB or engage any pvp at/near the target tribe's base.
  • If you are being raided, and see an FOB being setup, your best course of action is to post in GLOBAL CHAT, then discord (screen shots always best) so that the admins have a timestamp to know when the raiders were spotted at your base..
  • We will use that timestamp to define the start.  Without that information, admins judge the start of a raid based on the first entry in the logs.
  • Violation of any raiding rule will be penalized severely; Penalties may include any combination of: tribe dino wipe, forfeiture of all tribe inventory (items, mats, BP's), a minimum 48 Hour ban of all tribe members.
When PvP or progression stops for more than 10 minutes the raid is deemed over.
  • Come prepared to raid for the full duration. You can not leave & come back to continue the raid.
  • Any and all PvP between the attacking & defending tribes is considered progression.
  • Soaking turrets is considered progression.  However, If there is no pvp between the raiders and the defenders, we expect to see destruction logs quickly.  20  minutes (as an example of time ONLY) of soaking turrets with no pvp or logged destruction tells us you are not actually soaking non stop and making progression. Be warned.
  • Violation of any raiding rule will be penalized severely; Penalties may include any combination of: tribe dino wipe, forfeiture of all tribe inventory (items, mats, BP's), a minimum 48 Hour ban of all tribe members.
Any FOB's used for raiding MUST be removed IMMEDIATELY when the raid is over
  • If you are counter raided and driven off or wiped it is still your responsiblity to remove any remnants of your FOB.
  • Turrets are allowed at or near your FOB (within 20 foundations).  Turrets can NOT be used to fully encompass a tribes base in an attempt to 'trap' them.  Turrets can DEFINITELY be used offensively as part of a raid, but it must be a part of your FOB setup.  Simply put, do not attempt to put 50 turrets around someone's base to surround them.  Use them to help you progress into a base from the area where your FOB is stationed.
  • Violation of any raiding rule will be penalized severely; Penalties may include any combination of: tribe dino wipe, forfeiture of all tribe inventory (items, mats, BP's), a minimum 48 Hour ban of all tribe members.

tribE warfare groups

A tribe warfare group is a group of 2 or more tribes that are at declared war with each other.
  • Tribes in declare war with others will have the tag " {w}" at the front of their tribe name.
  • Tribes must have a discord role on our server and ALL members must be in that role in order for you to participate.
  • Tribe warfare can ONLY be approved (or forced upon you) by admins. Until it is posted in discord officially for all to see, it is not real.
