Rules


This Server is set for mature audiences. Ages 16+ Required.



PvP Disclaimer:


  • This is a PVP server, raiding is an essential part of a Ark PvP Server, ultimately it is your responsibility to survive (it’s not the admin’s job to play the game for you). Excessive Harassment of a Tribe or Player will not be tolerated. Have fun, but don’t make your neighbors quit the game entirely.
  • In order to keep Odins’Ark fun and competitive, if you are constantly running players off a server that the community is trying to build, you will be asked to leave, no exceptions.

GLOBAL CHAT


  • EXCESSIVE HARRASSMENT IN GLOBAL CHAT WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
  • Talk of politics and religion in any of the chats is prohibited. This is a place to play Ark, and discuss Ark.
  • Racial Slurs will NOT BE TOLERATED IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM.

RAIDING / PVP


  • Greifing and Harassing new players is not allowed. Please allow new players to get on your level before trying to raid them.
  • In order to keep Odins’Ark fun and competitive, if you are constantly running players off a server that the community is trying to build, you will be asked to leave, no exceptions.
  • If a player messes with your tame, then you should not have been lazy and protected your tames (build a fence, bring a dino, stay with it, etc)
  • Raids are considered over after 30 minutes of no offensive activity.
  • Fobs’ (Forward operating bases) Must be taken down once a raid is concluded.
  • Griefing of Bases/Tribes is not permitted.

This includes and is not limited to:


  • Killing tames without making a raid attempt. (Killing tames and leaving.) We understand shooting and killing a tame as an act to provoke someone, but excessive killing with no raid attempt is against the rules.
  • Camping entrances of tribes preventing players from playing the game. (Such as placing turrets in the entrance to their cave outside of an active raid.)
  • Sniping/Killing Tames or Players for the reason of ruining the players/tribes gaming experience, or preventing them from playing the game.
  • Excessively and uneccessarily killing “Sniping” passive tames. This means that an act that kills an excessive amount of passive tames for no other reason other than to be a “Dick”
  • Full tribe wipes (foundation wiping) are occasionally necessary, but be kind to other players and to the server pop. If you want to play on a populated server, don’t run people off.

  • Repetitive wiping of innocent tribes can been judged as cancerous and ultimately result in permanent bans.
  • You may not cage / incapacitate any player for more than 30 minutes.
  • Raided tribes may apply for Raid Protection. Do so by following the rules stated in the #raid-protection-rules

Tribe Info


  • Max Tribe size is 8, Anyone caught with more than 8 will be punished by the Admins.
  • Tribes may be allied with up to 2 tribes, (2 alliances per tribe, 1 tribe per alliance)
  • Tribes are Allowed 3 bases (PER MAP)
  • Any tribe found to be building a structure near another tribe to intentionally block them from being able to farm resources will simply be removed by admins.
  • You may not change your tribe name, or any dino name within 24 hours of doing any world pvp or raiding.

Dino Info


  • No Completely boxing your platform dino. The dino MUST be built to be able to take damage. Anyone caught going against this rule will have the dino removed.
  • The rider may be covered, but the dino may not have any structures built downwards in attempt to “Armor Plate” the dino.
  • The only exception to this is ramps to get your gatheres onto your dino (AKA a ramp to get your anky onto your quetzal)

General Rules


  • Players caught dropping any wild eggs (Wyvern/Drake/etc) in the world to block spawns, will be penalized.
  • Players must try to stay clear from building in resource rich areas. If you choose to build in a resource rich area, you risk upsetting players that will now put a target on you
