Server Rules

Our server rules

last updated: May 2, 2023

Our ultimate goal is to build a local ANZ community of like minded and friendly players. These rules are to help build a healthy community. 

Community won’t happen by itself – we need you!
If there is something that you don’t like, or would like to see changed: please speak up and let us know

The rules are subject to change without notification, though I will do my best to ensure that major changes are communicated clearly via the Kewee.NET discord server.

Failure to abide by these rules can result in the admin removal of your structures/items/tames, or your account being banned from all Kewee.NET Servers. Action taken is at the sole discretion of the admin.

This list is not exhaustive but represents clear guidelines for players to adhere to when playing on our servers. For something you’re unsure of, please use your best judgement. When in doubt, please reach out to @TheKewee on discord or in game.

online multiplayer games thrive with community spirit, and are way more fun with others please don’t ruin your experience by driving others away!


#1 Don’t be a jerk
those that just want to cause trouble – please go play somewhere else

Please refrain from using any bad language, cursing, racism, or hate speech.
This is a family friendly community – any insults, threats, harassment, or disrespectful behavior towards players either in game or on our Discord channels are unacceptable and will result in an instant ban.

No offensive character, tribe, tame names, or signs
You will be asked to change if the admin deems them inappropriate.

Admins will not interfere with gameplay
Admins play the game too, and will make best effort to help resolve unexpected issues (stuck dinos/players, structure/tribe ownership issues, etc. )

Wildcard’s official Code of Conduct applies on our servers
The official code of conduct applies on our servers. Please review the guidelines here:

PvE Stealing/looting is not allowed
Structures are locked by default. Please check with the owner of unlocked structures before taking any contents
Player corpses and death bags remain the property of the owner

Help other players without affecting their progression/sense of achievement
Giving lower level players items & dinos above their level doesn’t help their game progression and sense of achievement. It’s much better to help and guide them to progress to the next level using the tools and tames available to them. Players that are given everything early often give up early because they haven’t learnt the game basics and haven’t set progression goals


Each tribe may build 1 main base per cluster
Exceptions for large tribes may be arranged with admins in advance

Keep your base area to a minimum
use some common sense and think about how your build might impact others using the servers
If your fencing needs foundations randomly placed to stop things spawning within, then maybe it’s too big
If your structures take ages to render in, or you can’t render one side to the other – then it’s definitely too big

No land claiming
blocking building/spawns with Foundation/Pillar spam is prohibited

Building in restricted areas is not permitted
Restricted areas:

  • player spawn points
  • loot drop locations
  • artifact caves
  • obelisks/city terminals, paths
  • explorer notes
  • wyvern trench and immediate area
  • all high value resource areas

Temporary structures and abandoned bases should be removed immediately after use
This includes all trap and protection structures used when taming

Oil and Gas collectors must be unlocked
These structures produce more than enough resource to share

SAP Taps
Tribes may claim 1 tree for SAP tap collection and install as many sap taps and structures or tree platforms as will fit on the one tree.
we recommend unlocking SAP TAPS when you’re not actively farming them. These respawn 1 every 10 mins – so every 4 hours they’ll be full. S+ sap taps collect 90 per tap

Beaver dams – Please take everything, or drop what you don’t need 
Beaver dams won’t respawn until emptied – no-one wants to open a dam only to find just your unwanted wood inside!

Do not use structure exploits
Basic test: if it defies gravity or immersion – don’t do it…


Please cryo any dinos not currently being used, breed, or egg producing
Cryofridges should be used for long term dino storage.

Do not leave tames breeding without player supervision
Always disable mating/wander when breeding session is complete.

Do not leave tames on wander without player supervision
Tames found on wandering causing nuisance will be admin destroyed without warningRepeat offending will attract a tribe dino wipe.

Do not use flyers in any artifact caves
if you can’t fly in the cave entry then you shouldn’t be flying anywhere in the cave. Caves that you are able to build in are not artifact no fly caves.

Use the S+ gun to kill unwanted tames
Do not unclaim and or give away unwanted dinos

CAUTION: Always make sure your Cryofridge is either S+ or powered before opening. ARK has a known calculation issue when opening unpowered fridges.


Support is best effort
Please contact @TheKewee or @admins on discord for urgent support, or to report abandoned bases/rule breakers.


Cheating, griefing, and intentionally using bug exploits will lead to a permanent ban across all servers.
punishment is up to the discretion of the admin

examples are not limited to but can include:

– Dragging another player not in your tribe while they’re offline
– Intentionally using wild creatures to destroy a player’s assets/tames when not in a tribe war.
– Structure Spamming – placing structures down for the purpose of disrupting others gameplay
– Leaving tames inside of caves or on obelisk teleportation platforms
– Intentionally filling the server tame limit via spamming tames (such as Dodo, Jerboa, or easy to tame dinos) and/or rafts
– Blocking access to important resources (ie. charge nodes, gas nodes, Extinction City Terminals, etc)
– Obstructing pathways or waterways for the purpose of denying another tribe access
– Blocking access in/out of a tribes base
– Blocking in other tribes dinos

“A griefer is a player in a multiplayer video game who deliberately irritates and angers other players within the game, often using aspects of the game in unintended ways.”

– using third-party programs such as in-game automated bots, ESP, Aimbots, and Game Engine Modifications.

– Attacking from, travelling through, or building in unintended game-zones (under the mesh or above the map)
– Duplication of tames, items, or characters
– Unintended building mechanics (such as floating structures, using the world barrier as a snap point)
– Building a box on a platform saddled dino to completely prevent it from taking damage
– Modifying your game files to remove key graphical components (water, fog, etc)
– Attacking or blocking players through the terrain with dinosaurs
– Intentionally crashing users or servers (through DDoS or otherwise)
– Placing excessive quantities of C4 to prevent hostile C4 from being placed
– Stacking multiple creatures inside each other’s models via raising babies close together, teleporting them near each other, downloading them, etc (ex: multiple brontos in a 1×1 foundation area)
– Floating structures or structures that extend past normal building limits on platform saddles or rafts for PVP purposes
