It is not allowed to raft raid with turrets.

ORP

-ORP (offline raid protection)
-Max 2 orps per tribe per map
-If a tribe logs out during PvP, the ORP will become active after 5 hours (1 minute with no PvP). ORP protection is 75% in combination with 5x turret damge.

NPP

In case of a successful raid, the defending party is entitled to 3 days NPP. This must be requested from an admin or the support who will assess the case.

CAVES

-Building is allowed in all caves except the Titan caves on Extinction.

*NOTE: A maximum of 2 caves per tribe per cluster may be claimed.

RAT HOLES

It is allowed to live in rat holes unless the following applies to the rathole in which you want to live:

-If you have to sit in a chair to enter.
-If you need a sleeping bag to enter.
-If meshing is included.
-All other glitches to get in to a rat hole.

SPAM

-It is allowed to place spam around your own base.
-It is not allowed to place random spam all over the map for no reason.
-It is allowed to place spam during a raid. This should be cleaned up after the raid, just like the fob.

Note: Random spam will be removed.

SWITCHING FROM TRIBE

If you want to leave a tribe, or switch to another tribe, you must first report this to the staff.

f you do not do that it will be seen as insiding in any case. This will make sure that you can split the resources fairly between the two parties involved. If a tribe isn’t able to split it fair, staff will intervene and assist in this matter. We are changing this because lately we had two cases of insiding were the core issue was that the person that left didn’t notify the tribe and just took some random items they thought belonged to them but the tribe disagreed but couldn’t do anything because he/she already took it.

FOB

-It is not allowed to place ORP on FOBs

REFUNDS

In previous seasons we had a refund policy in which we would refund players their items/tames if for a glitch/bug reason they lost it.
Sadly our goodwill was abused multiple times as people asked for more items than they lost.
On top of that multiple people in the game were against the policy and so a vote was cast.
In this vote the majority of our community voted to abolish the refund policy, therefore NO REFUNDS.
Messages regarding refunds will simply be ignored from now on.
