Ark Cluster Rules

-Players come in all ages, keep that in mind when talking in Global. (Be appropriate, no excessive use of bad language, etc.)
-Generic names such as Human, 123, etc. are not allowed. You will be asked to change your name by an admin. (Or a name will be chosen for you if you do not wish to provide one)
-You must have the same character and tribe name on every server in the cluster. Tribe hopping is forbidden and bannable. (Tribe hopping is temporarily switching tribes and then joining back with your original. Joining a new tribe permanently is fine.)
-Joining a tribe to steal items/destroy/wipe their base will result in a ban.
-NO ALLIANCES ALLOWED – You don’t have to attack everyone on sight, but teaming up for raids/bosses is not allowed.
-Interfering with an active raid IS NOT ALLOWED
-This is a common decency thing, but apparently must be said for some – POPCORNING IS BANNABLE. (Popcorning is when you drop your loot while being attacked/raided to prevent the attacking team from getting the loot).
-No Exploiting glitches/bugs. (Mesh biting, mesh turrets, duping, etc.) This includes platform saddles/rafts extending into buildings with C4.
-It’s PVP and we are all here for a good time, but griefing the same tribe over and over does nothing but encourage the playerbase to thin out. Avoid raiding the same tribe repeatedly. Give them a chance to rebuild and continue playing.
You must wait 48-hours after you have raided a tribe to raid that same tribe again.
-A clean server runs better! Remove unnecessary traps and FOBs when you’re done with them. Every piece of building adds to server load.
-Do NOT give out player base coordinates in chat!
-No building BASES around obelisks or in artifact caves. Bases in these locations will be admin wiped. (Updated 6/18/2021)
-Extinction city building: ensure you are not directly blocking a city terminal and that your turrets do not shoot people at terminals. PvP at these locations is definitely allowed.
