Learn and follow all rules

At ArkNerds.com we try to stick towards the core of the game mechanics. This is a PvP server. However please be respectful of our rules and community guidelines.


Insta-ban will be given for:
Any form of racism or discrimination.
Any form of hacking / cheating / exploiting.
Any form of inappropriate character or Tribe name

You can build anywhere ON the map. You CANNOT build under the mesh. If caught building under the mesh or meshing in general you will be permanently banned from ArkNerds.com and we will recommend a battle-eye ban. You are only allowed to build in places that are meant to be built in. If you have to manipulate the game to get into a spot then you are not allowed to build there. (If you have questions about the spot in question please contact an Admin)

This is a PvP server but please be respectful of new tribes and players just getting started. An established tribe going and raiding new players will result in corrective actions. Give them a chance to build a proper base and defend themselves. Stone bases or bases that do not have turrets are off limits unless they have been given ample time to build up. (You should have turrets up as quickly as possible)
Do not make personal attacks against other members. It is okay to talk shit but personal attacks will not be tolerated. This is a game, don’t make it personal. If you make personal attacks on someone you risk being banned.

Open world PvP is fine but ”Griefing” and repeatedly killing a Bob over and over is not allowed. (This rule does not protect people provoking others to attack them)

No mesh hitting or biting through walls or surfaces with the intent of destroying things on the other side illegitimately.

Maximum cage timer is 24 hours. (Rule does not apply if you are raiding, you can keep a player caged during the entire duration of the raid if it exceeds 1 day.)

Do not “popcorn”, this means mass dropping items from your inventory into individual bags. This includes throwing out all of your cryo-dinos at once, unwanted loot from raids or dropping loot when you are facing imminent death or base wipe. The “Drop All” function is allowed.

”Insiding” is frowned upon but not forbidden, it is up to you to judge the character of your Tribe-members. Servers will not be rolled back no matter who you are in cases of insiding.

This is a PvP server please concentrate on building a base and defenses as soon as possible before breeding and taming a bunch of Dinos. It is not against the rules to have your dinosaurs ”Meat Ran” make sure you can defend your Dinos before taming a bunch of them. You lose admin protection if your provoke other players to attack you.

Please remember that this is a game, we are all here to have fun. Don’t be toxic, be respectful and Join the Discord for additional information and to contact the Admins/Owner.

ArkNerds as a community reserves the right to ban any player for any reason.
