Subsistence PvE Server Rules

All rules found here will pertain to all of our current and future Subsistence Servers. Please read and familiarize yourself with them. UPDATED 11/01/2022

1. COMMON SENSE Guidelines

  • The PACK Gaming has several different game platforms and servers. These come as a free service to all our players but come with certain rules and strict enforcement. We are unable to provide any refunds to persons or clans for loss of items, resources, in-game properties and so on, regardless of the reason.
  • These rules are available in each of The Pack server’s Global posts most of the time. Ignorance of the rules will not be considered during intervention and does not give grounds for an appeal.
  • These rules are not comprehensive and use of loopholes to violate the spirit of these rules is subject to enforcement. Failure to follow these rules will result in being removed from the community! Please follow all of the RULES found here!
  • We reserve the right to modify these rules in any way we deem necessary and at any moment, at our own discretion, it is your responsibility to check for them. We will put a note in the Message of the Day on Specific servers when there are significant updates.

2. Personal Responsibility & Tribal/Clan Membership

  • ❝Your presence in this server implies accepting these rules, including all further changes. We reserve the right to modify these rules in any way we deem necessary and at any moment, at our own discretion, it is your responsibility to check for them. ❞
  • Please read through and consider the spirit of the rules, not just the specific wording. And make sure your clanmates are also aware of them as their actions can affect you. Any infraction by a player will most likely have repercussions for the entire clan. If you’re not sure your clanmates will abide by the rules you might want to reconsider your membership in that tribe/clan. And if you do not plan on playing on a specific server any more it is often best to also leave your tribe/clan there.
  • Admin Involvement in Tribal Affairs - Admins rarely get involved in intra-tribal(things going on inside a tribe) issues and or inter-tribal(things between two tribes) issues. UNLESS the altercations escalate to the stage of griefing or harassment.

3. Infractions

3A. We work on a "3 Strikes Method"

  • Strike One: You and your Tribe/Clan get a warning. This can be Slept tames to Us removing the offending objects or tames. And a Sign informing you of the offense.
  • Strike Two: We have to talk to you about a new rule or you broke the same one again. You can have creatures or buildings removed up to a Temp BAN. Temp Bans are 3 to 5 days without access to the servers.
  • Strike Three: We are done, and you are Perm Banned.
Furthermore, If someone is a participant of our Discord, and/or a Player on our Servers, A ban on Discord may also be pursued on the Server Cluster. We do not issue warnings ahead of Admin intervention. Hacking, or using Exploits and other situations deemed as extreme will be met with a permanent ban on the first offense.

3B. Reporting Infractions
