(1) General Rules

This includes but is not limited to language which is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, homophobic, sexually explicit, or racially, ethnically or otherwise offensive. This is PvP, trash-talking is okay but if it gets out of hand the situation will be reviewed and dealt with accordingly.
1.3 You must always use a legitimate character, tribe and dino name(s). It is forbidden to use any symbols not found in the English alphabet. You also may not call your character "Human", "Survivor", "Player", "123", "321", "OneTwoThree", "□□□" or anything similar and no use of emojis under any circumstances.

2.4 Insiding is completely forbidden, this includes but is not limited to; leaving a tribe and taking items with you without tribe leader consent, disabling defences to allow entry to another tribe or causing destruction from within the base prior or after leaving the tribe. Whoever the tribe leader is has full ownership and can do with the tribe belongings and its roster as they please. It is your responsibility to ensure you are in a trustful tribe.
(3) Building Rules
3.1 All structures you place must be visible and able to be damaged via a legitimate method.
3.2 Do not block access to, build in, on or near the following points of interest unless actively farming, utilising or PvP'ing; if any structures are found in these areas with a render timer more than 1 hour old, they will be removed without warning.

- Artifact Caves on Crystal Isles #2 & Crystal Isles (Beginners) only.
3.3 The abuse of no collision building and placing structures or items on top of yours or another's player model making them completely concealed, immobilized or invulnerable is forbidden. This rule does not apply to dinos.
3.4 The use of unintended building mechanics raid method utilising foundations, pillars, ramps, walls, & ceilings to build tunnels and enclosed pathways into enemy bases bypassing enemy defences with the intent of destroying them from close proximity. Clarification: This rule DOES NOT apply to platform saddle creatures or to rafts & motorboats.
3.5 Players are not permitted to place ORP on their FOBs or spam when raiding. ORP is intended for defensive main bases only.
(4) PVP Rules
4.1 You are allowed to open world "popcorn" this means mass dropping items from any inventories or containers into individual bags you have access to. The only form of popcorning that is forbidden is despawning of items during raids and facing imminent base destruction, essentially preventing the attackers from receiving any deserved loot.
4.2 Tribes are not permitted to "team" when it comes to PvP. This includes but is not limited to things such as; Joint raids against one or more tribes (8 v 4 etc), defending a tribe from another tribes attacks to provide mutual defences, coordinated attacks and more.. PvE Teaming, however, is allowed. Please see rule 4.4 for PvE Teaming engagements.
4.3 You are allowed to third party PvP engagements and raids as long as you are actively engaging against all involved tribes evenly and your tribe log proves this. If your tribe log is found to be overwhelmingly in favour of one tribe over another - this will be considered teaming.
4.4 If you are PvE teaming with another tribe and a 3rd party tribe engages you in PvP, you are allowed to defend yourselves together.
Rules are subject to change at any time and it is a players responsibility to ensure they are up to date on our latest rules when playing on our servers.
