GENERAL RULES 

-This is a NO WIPE cluster. 

-We enforce all rules found in Arks Code of Conduct found here: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/code-of-conduct/

-If you lose your body or dino due to a glitch or any reason at all, the admins will not be able to assist you in retrieving them. This includes falling through the map.

-There are glitches in ARK. Exploiting these will result in a ban.

-Cheating & scripting is not allowed; it will lead to a player and their tribe being banned.

-No teaming or counter raiding for another tribe. Stay out of render of an ongoing raid unless you’re one of the two parties involved.

-If you capture an enemy player, they are captured until you release them or their tribe comes to free them. Ideally you should release them after a raid is over or before you log off but that's your call if you want to be a total dick.

-Do not move characters back and forth between multiple tribes or attempt to circumvent the tribe member limit. There is a 60 minute time lock where you will be unable to join a tribe after leaving one to help prevent this.

-No insiding. If you take items you purchased with points and leave the tribe, THIS IS NOT INSIDING! We define insiding as someone intentionally joining your tribe to sabotage it. Example throws everything on the ground and demos the base. Leaving the tribe and then taking some breeding lines or weapons with them is not insiding. A tribe has shared ownership of everything regardless of who does what. TRUST THE PEOPLE YOU LET IN YOUR TRIBE!

-Intentionally crashing the Moonlight Gaming servers (through DDoS or otherwise) will lead to players being banned.

-Do not build on player spawns.

-Do not build turrets or towers with the intent to block resource spawns.

-No Random turrets, turret towers or traps that are not affiliated with your base.

-Do not block or build with intent to block access to or from the obelisks. PvP at Obelisks is allowed. No turrets or structures.

-Dinos must be able to be shot by turrets. You may not enclose your dinos. "Shielding" dinos in order to walk up to turrets is not allowed. 

-You may place a foundation over your dino drivers.

-Blocking access to nests is not allowed and could result in your structures being removed without warning.

-Meshing of any sort is not allowed and will result in a ban if abused. Please use our ticket system if you believe someone is meshing.
