CLUSTER INFO

Small Tribes offers a more PVP focussed experience compared to the other clusters that we run. Our PVP/Small tribes cluster offers 24/7 raiding in a fair and balanced environment. By removing certain items from the in-game shop we have allowed for a more difficult experience, along with the removal of the quest system means everyone is on the same playing field.

Our tribe rank system helps smaller tribes keep up with larger ones by increasing harvesting/taming/XP rates etc depending on tribe size.

Everyone has the ability to come back into the constant fights using our new Rebuild servers! These Rebuild servers feature increased rates and loot quality to allow you to match other tribes more quickly!

Each tribe is assigned a rank based on the number of players within the tribe. Gaining tribe members will be reflected instantly, but removing a tribe member will take 24 hours to update. A tribe rank will be reflected in chat by a unique colour and grants bonus multiplier.

Solo, duo and trio tribes must have been established for at least 24 hours to gain the bonus. The base rates are multiplied with the bonus.

The harvest multiplier setting also applies to loot from boxes and kits

Example: (Harvesting) 5 x 2 (Multiplier) = x10 Harvesting

Chat Commands:

/tribetime - Check time for current tribe status

/triberank - display current tribe rank info

ORP may not be used in any restricted area! [See 4.2 Trike-by-foot Rule] Enabling ORP in these locations will result in it being removed and you will be subject to a Punish Rank

Command Description
/setorp < name > sets orp to current player location.
/orp Will give a message saying if you are inside your own ORP or not, will also tell you if your target has active ORP or not.
/listorp Gives list of current ORPs
/removeorp < name > Removes ORP

Turret Balancer

Adjusts the Turret Damage based off the number of players attacking compared to how many are defending.

If a tribe member of the defending tribe logs out the defender count will remain the same. However, if more members log on or an alliance member is detected within range the count increases. If no PvP activity is detected within 30 minutes the defender count will decrease.

The number of attackers is based on range and updates at set intervals.

Turret Damage Example:

Tribe A = 4 people

Tribe B = 2 people

Tribe A attacks Tribe B with 4 people. Turret Damage = 150%

Tribe A withdraws a member and it becomes 3 vs 2. Turret Damage = 125%

Tribe A withdraws another member making it 2 v 2. Turret Damage = 100%

Tribe Ranks

Tribe Ranks are assigned based on the number of players within a tribe. Recruiting new members will be updated instantly but removing a player from the tribe will take 24 hours to update. Tribe Rank will be reflected in chat by a unique colour and name tag.

Bonus multiplayers are calculated by the size of a tribe and are multiplied by the server rates.

Additionally, the harvest multiplayer setting is applied to loot from boxes and kits.


Example: Server Rates (x5), Tribe Multiplier (x1.5) = 5 x 1.5 = x7.5

Mod Complete List Open List

We have assembled a rebuild kit, to keep the motivation going after being raided.

If you have already played in the current season and return after a while, you can sign up for the Gamma Kit. In this case, only the playing time will be considered.

To obtain the rebuild kit, you need to apply on our discord server, to prove that your base has been destroyed.

There are 3 levels of the rebuild kit:

Gamma Kit

Beta Kit

Alpha Kit

Your Base was made mostly out of metal

Your Base had ateast 20 Auto Turrets

Your Base had basic items such as Fabricator / Grill / Smithy

Chat Command: /rebuild gamma

Your Base was made fully out of metal

Your Base has atleast 100 Auto Turrets

Your Base had atleast 50 Heavy Turrets

Your Base had basic items such as Industral Forge / Industral Grinder / Industral Cooker.

Chat Command: /rebuild beta

Your Base was made mostly out of metal with some Tek items

Your Base had atleast 100 Heavy Turrets.

Your Base had atleast 10 Tek Turrets.

Your Base had basic items such as Tek Generator / Tek Replicator / Tek Teleporter

Chat Command: /rebuild alpha

Please note Alpha kits will not be available for the first 2 weeks of a server wipe.

Please also note to qualify for the correct kit, the correct evidence must be shown in your support ticket showing how you meet those requirement.

Simply meeting one criteria such as "Your Base had atleast 100 Heavy Turrets." but you did not have the "Your Base had basic items such as Tek Generator / Tek Replicator / Tek Teleporter" means you will not qualify for that rebuild kit and will be given the suitable kit.

PVP RULES

[1.1 - No Insulting]
Keep it civil. A bit of competitive showboating/taunting (aka "BMing") is fine, but don't descend into hurling abuse at one another.

[1.2 - No Advertisements]

[1.3 - No Spam]

[1.4 - No Cheating or Exploits]
Cheating in all forms is a bannable offense - including but not limited to: glitches, undermeshing, meshbiting or leaving the map. No excuses. This also includes admins who abuse their access to console commands (or other server features) for reasons other than performing their support duties. Any unintended mechanics as a result from a plugin/mod that gives unfair advantages can be deemed exploitation at the admins discretion, and can result in punishment.Admins have the final word. Included in this is using exploits with friends to get to the top of our achievement lists. It is being tracked and foul play will be punished.

[1.5 No Insiding]
Joining a tribe with the deliberate intent of sabotage, or sabotaging your own tribe as you when you leave to join another is considered a form of cheating. This includes stealing property, turning off turrets, disclosing pin codes or leaving containers unlocked. Insiding your alliance is forbidden. Recruiting an inexperienced player who gets your dinos killed or forgets to close a door is not considered to be insiding Everything belongs to the Tribe Owners! IF YOU MERGE, THE NEW OWNER GETS OWNERSHIP RIGHTS TO YOUR THINGS!

[2.1 - Tribe Name and Player name]
You are not permitted to raid under an alias. You are not permitted to impersonate another tribe. Your Tribe and Player name must not contain symbols/letters the game won’t recognize, or contain profanities. Tribemembers have to be in the same Tribe on all Maps.

[2.2 - Tribe Limit & Alliances]
The Tribe Limit is 6 Players. Exploiting the tribe limit is considered a form of cheating e.g. having a log-out room. No abuse of the tribe rank system is allowed! Alliances are limited to trio’s and below, with a maximum of 1 alliance. The two tribes may not build close to each other. Turrets from 1 alliance half must not in any way be in the way for a raiding party against the other ally!

[3.1 - Raiding]
Bloody Ark defines raiding as attacking a tribe's base or Teleporter Station.
Hatchframe protected Dinos or fully armored Dinos are forbidden and can be deleted on sight and have further punishment. This also includes the Tek-Skiff, any build that protects the skiff from beeing shot from all sides are not allowed and will be deleted on sight. If a turret would have severe difficulties in getting a target lock due to the platform design, it is not allowed!

[3.2 Wall-up strategy]
Due to how claim range works in ARK, only some structures will actively “claim or interfere” with hostile structures. Walls isn’t one of those. This has lead to the rise of a new meta where you build a foundation far below/above a base and then freely build walls into other ppl’s bases, bypassing their defences.
https://prnt.sc/qhszuu Example photo.
Bloody is now taking a stance against this strategy, and usage of this is now against our rules, and will lead to punishment of equal degree to meshing or glitching, as we find this to be an unintended building mechanic that is easily exploited. “Similar” standard siege strategy that builds towers close to make a ramp for a soaker will still be allowed at range, it is specifically the “cheesing” that will be punished.

[3.3 - Open-world PVP]
Active at all times. Placing Turrets in open pvp is only allowed if you're picking it up or turning those off afterwards. Dont use glitches or exploits to cage ur Enemy.

[3.5 - Teaming & Snatching raids]
Teaming is allowed for Solo up to Trio Tribes with their alliance for defending and attacking. Teaming is not allowed for Squads or higher and for Tribes that are not in an alliance.
In the case of a triangle scenario (Griefing a raid, counterraiding):
Should a third party attack a raiding group, the third party MUST commit to the raid should they succeed in driving the original attacker away. This means the third party group has to finish the raid on the attacked tribe.
Sniping players in an active raid is not allowed if you dont want to take over the raid
If you’re not intent on stealing the raid or are legitimately defending, stay out of it.

[3.6 - Imprisonment]
You cannot hold another player prisoner for longer than 3 hours. The exception to this rule is during a raid, in which case players may be kept imprisoned for the duration of the raid. Imprisoned players must be released after 3 hours of the raid being declared as over. If all attacking players are captured, the raid is classified as over.

[4.1 - ORP Settings]
Offline Protection Settings during week
- Structure Damage (e.g Turrets) = x4
- Structure Resistance = 90%

Offline Protection Settings during weekend (Friday 20:00 - Sunday 20:00)
- Structure Damage (e.g Turrets) = x2
- Structure Resistance = 50%

ORP may not be used in caves, ratholes, pillars, pearl caves, rafts, oceanplatforms , underwater bases (open, cave and bubbles) and all areas not reachable with a trike. Enabling ORP in these locations will result in it being removed and potentially further punishment.

[4.2 - Trike-by-foot Rule]
Every spot that isn't fully reachable by a walking trike is not allowed to have ORP. A Trike has to be able to walk from the FoB to the targets Mainbase on land. No jumping from high above(significant fall damage). No cryopodding. On foot from the start.

[5.1 - weapon exploits]
ANY mechanic exploit that make weapons, tools or creatures behave in an unexpected way, WILL result in heavy punishment! One of the ways we can point specifically towards, is snow owl interactions. We want to disable content as a last resort, so play fair and don't use exploits or glitches.

[6.1 - Banned Areas ]

  • All Maps: Obelisks and fair range around them.
  • Island: Ice Cave
  • Ragnarok: Wyvern Trench, Lava Golem Cave Entrance
  • Valguero: Wyvern Trench
  • Aberration: Shadow Cave
  • Center: North Ice Cave, Lava Pearl Cave
  • Genesis: Mission Zones, HLN-A Teleport Location, Magmasaur (Volcano) cave
  • Crystal Isles: Wyvern Cave/Scar

All building, including turrets are not allowed in banned areas and will get deleted on sight without warning. Players that build or place turrets in a banned area will be target of a punish rank.

Unintended building areas that wildcard did not intend but messed up. Key features include but are not limited to: crawlspaces and mesh troubles, inability to get inside without sleeping bag/tranqing or other foul play. As well as the inability to bring a soaker into range of the entry point. Building in these will result in instant base deletion at no compensation should it be deemed a banned area.

By Violating a restricted zone's ORP rules, Admins will remove the ORP without any warning and you will be subject of a Punish Rank. If you're absent for 3 days or more please open a ticket so we don't remove your base.
