The [P4CK] operates two clustered ARK: Survival Evolved servers, running the Ragnarok (52 player slots) and Aberration (64 player slots) maps. See the Rules & Requirements page for more information about playing on our servers.
USEFUL ARK:SE LINKS
Use the following resources to aid your ARK:SE experience! From awesome mods to the ultimate ARK Wiki, browse the list to find the tool to change your game.
ARK Gamepedia - A Wiki full of information about all of the ARK's creatures, spawn locations, maps, and helpful guides.
-RESPECT ADMIN STAFF AT ALL TIMES (CUMB, HODGEPODGE, OPBOCK, HEXEN)-
All players are expected to follow the directions given by admin staff at all times. Any player who is disrespectful to an admin, fails to follow direction, or does not adhere to a decision made by an admin will have their character removed. There is a submission form on the home page, and on the left-hand side of this page where you can submit any issue you may have with an admin. Admin staff are held to the same standards as all other players, and admin abuse is never tolerated. Please do not hesitate to submit any issue you feel you have. If you have concerns about the way a situation is or was being handled, please take screenshots and document the interaction. These make determining what happened much easier, and will ensure we have all the information when we consider a situation.
-BASE LIMIT AND LOCATION RULES-
Bases/structures are not allowed in the following areas, any structures found in these areas will be deleted:
Dragonmantle Trench on Ragnarok (Wyvern Cavern/Pit)
No blocking of cave entrances
No blocking of resources to prevent resource use
If your base blocks resources in order to gain a strategic advantage and allow you to use the resource exclusively, that is fine. If you do it in order to detract from the experience of all players, you will face penalties.
PvP Decay is enabled, but offline PvP is disabled. See the Server Multipliers & Stats tab for more information on decay timers.
When raiding, you are allowed to cage/handcuff players, but for no longer than 4 hours or the length of the raid - whichever comes first.
The Obelisks on Ragnarok and the Portals on Aberration are violence free areas, but any wild dinos or tames left on the obelisk are free game. If you are killed near an Obelisk by another player, you must have solid evidence and submit a report on the Admin Help Submission form to the left.
Do not abuse platform saddles and cover dinosaurs with structures.
Absolutely no griefing of enemy players or tribes
Griefing means continuously attacking a player or tribe every day, or on respawn. This behavior detracts from the quality of the game and is not necessary to enjoy ARK's PvP.
Admin staff will decide whether or not a given player or tribe's behavior is considered griefing, use your discretion to avoid any incidents.
We encourage members to be active on chat and keep up the good banter. Using foul language and talking trash to other players is completely acceptable, but please do not be a toxic presence on the server. This includes excessive chat spam, repeated aggressive behavior, racism, sexism, etc. is not acceptable and will result in penalties. Repeatedly doing these things will result in a kick and eventually a ban.
No using mods/game features in an exploitative manner in general
No building inside boss arenas
Exploiting boss spawns and boss arenas in this manner will result in a player or tribe wipe, depending on the circumstance.
Do not exploit structure collision
If you build your base into terrain so that it cannot be touched by other players, you will be subject to a structure wipe.
FIRST OFFENSE: Warning from an admin staff member
SECOND OFFENSE: Tribe or player dino wipe, depending on circumstance
THIRD OFFENSE: Tribe or player ban, depending on circumstance

THE [P4CK] ARK: SE TRIBE, IN-GAME MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS:
Important! Meeting these requirements is mandatory for all members who wish to be in The [P4CK]'s ARK: SE Tribe. Please note that membership in The [P4CK]'s ARK: SE tribe has no impact on your membership in The [P4CK]. Even if you aren't in the tribe but you follow the server rules (listed on the Server Rules tab before this one), you are welcome to play on the server, start your own tribe, and achieve glory!
Be social! Playing more often throughout the week and communicating on Discord will improve the chances we’re available to help! If you are only online twice a week for a couple of hours, there’s a large chance you will miss out on what our tribe has to offer. Simply put, the active will reap the benefits.
INACTIVITY & GAME PROGRESS
NOTE FROM THE ADMINS (CUMB, OPBOCK, HODGEPODGE, HEXEN):
We know life happens, and we know people get busy with work, school, family, hobbies, etc. Perhaps you've had a vacation scheduled, perhaps you want to make a spontaneous getaway - go for it, we hope you have a great time! There is no penalty for inactivity, we want you to have a life (not that we also don't want you to no-life it hard sometimes...)
Do not be absent for more than a week without notice to an admin. Note: you are required to notify an admin of any inactivity longer than 2 weeks, this is listed here because schedules change so it's better to let us know you'll be gone than come back to being tribe-less. There are also apps and bots that automatically send notices after periods of time absent, so there’s no excuse for not notifying an admin if you can't make it online. We will also send a notice to you after a week and boot you from the ARK: SE tribe after 2 weeks.
This is not a kick from the [P4CK], just the ARK: SE Tribe!
Complete one chore per week to help The [P4CK]'s primary Ragnarok or Aberration bases. Talk to an admin in-game or on Discord for more information. See the sticky post in the ARK: SE forums for a list of tasks that need to be completed weekly. Reply with your completed task to ensure you receive credit! Doubling up on tasks is fine, as long as it is not used to avoid responsibilities.
We are not going to give you a minimum time played or anything like that, but we’d like everyone to be a part of helping The [P4CK] grow!
JOIN THE [P4CK]'S ARK: SE TRIBE
We aren't going to just accept anyone, as our bases are well-fortified and our dinos are strong. We've got a large amount of resources and an abundance of firepower - we want you to join us, but we are a cautious group. Fill out the form below and we will arrange a time to meet with you in-game. You are also expected to be in Discord #new-tribe-member channel under the ARK: SE category at the time of your rendezvous, see the Mic & Discord Info tab after this one for more information.
We are people, too. The admins have lots of things to work on including website development, endgame strategy and boss runs, PvP teams and practices, etc… If we don’t respond on #general or another public channel @ or PM one of us to get our attention. We are never ignoring you!
Our Discord server is available for use by any player on any of The [P4CK]'s ARK: SE servers. However, the use of our Discord also requires registration for an account on our site and general membership in The [P4CK]. This means you will be required to post twice a month on our Forums if you wish to use our Discord for your own tribe on ARK. See below for more info.
PRIVATE DISCORD CHANNELS FOR OTHER TRIBES
Do you have dreams of crushing The [P4CK] on their own server? We welcome all challengers, and are constantly on the lookout for an awesome raid - hit us with your best shot.
We'll help facilitate this by providing you a password-protected channel in our Discord that your Tribe leader can have admin over. Please contact an @admin in Discord to set this up.
You are required to have a microphone and have access to Voice communications via Discord in order to join The [P4CK]'s ARK: SE Tribe. There are no exceptions to this rule.
We understand that this may limit the accessibility of The [P4CK]'s tribe for some players, however this is necessary to ensure we are able to communicate during various encounters.
Keep in mind not being in The [P4CK]'s tribe has no impact on your ability to play on the server as long as you follow the rules.
We also do monthly giveaways and MVP giveaways, which are sometimes microphones or headsets! At the very least, they might be an Amazon gift card worth enough to buy a desktop microphone!
Fuel Consumption Interval Multiplier: 1.5x (fuel resources will last a bit longer, but because of the harvesting multiplier and stackable resources, feel free to leave your bases powered/defended)
Players will receive enough points to unlock all engrams by max level
IMPORTANT: Weight stat will increase by 100,000 for each point spent. Weight is not to be considered a limiting factor, you should only need to spend one point in this category. The rest can be spent as you please.
Health stat per-point multiplier: 1.2x
Stamina stat per-point multiplier: 1.2x
All other stat per-point multiplier: 1.1x
Dino stat per-point multiplier: 1.1x
For example, 1 point spent in health would give you 1.2 times the normal amount.
Any other server config questions please ask an @admin in Discord or in-game.
