LIGHT - ADMIN/OWNER
Do Admins participate in tribe wars?

If asked to, then the Admin will create a raid specific base that will be constructed according to Player standards. The raid will then be held without admin commands. We like to have fun too, but want it to be a fair fight.

Why are tribes only allowed 2 bases on every map?

We want to offer the opportunity to all our players to build anywhere on the map. Additionally, we want to keep the lag on the maps to a minimum. This is why we only allow 2 bases per map. 

Why do all players have to be in the discord?

Previously the servers went password protected in order to deter rampant disregard for the rules. We decided to bring Beyond Ark public again on March 15th, 2020 after being password protected since Nov 2019. 

As discord is our best form of communication across the cluster, as well as being a central place for most server information, it is crucial to have all players from our servers in the discord. This assures that players can receive the help they need from the admin team in an emergency, allows players to make purchases from the admin shop, and also makes sure that new information is received quickly in the event of a server announcement, meeting, or vote.

Are there tek items in the drops?

There are no tek items, turrets, large amounts of element, nor crafting structures in our drops. Tek engrams will need to be earned through the boss fights on their respective maps, however some tek engrams auto learn if they are learned on a map that we we do not have in our cluster. 

How does the Tribe War structure work on PVE?

Players must agree face to face in game to the conditions of the Tribe War through the radial menu. Its much like joining an alliance. Players will agree to a set time, and once the timer starts only the two tribes in the war will be under the PVP arrangement. Meaning no other tribes will be affected.

What is the free dino area?

The free dino area in shop is a place where players can drop off over bred dinos and extra dinos for new players. Admins do not provide free dinos as starter dinos, however all dinos in the free area at shop are perfect starter dinos for new players. 

What happens when there is a PVP based event?

In the case of a PVP centered event, the Admins will open a dedicated event map temporarily that is designated for the event.

What are the Admin shop/shop vaults on Rag?

All players are required to request a vault in the Admin Shop tab of the discord. An admin will then respond privately assigning your tribe a vault. This vault is to be used during shop days. See the 'Admin Shop' tab for more information.
