    Our ARK Survival servers are PVPVE. This means that we promote a PVE existence and handle infractions such as raiding, bullying, theft and trolling by banding together as a community and solving the problems with professionalism courtesy AND PVP. Death and destruction with a smile! Trolls and Griefers may be banned without warning.



    Code of Conduct for Purple Frog Global


    Here at Purple Frog Global we strive to make sure everyone is having fun and is safe. Community is an important thing to us and we try to protect it as well as possible. We have set a few guidelines for you as an Ark player to follow so we can keep our community fun for everyone to play. Any person/player who does not comply with any of the following regulation will be punished accordingly.  




    PFG wants to keep a clean uncluttered server. In order to do so we like to only have active members. Any absences from Ark should be reported to an Admin so we know you have not left the server. If we can not get in contact with you we will clear your base and tames so other active people may occupy the space.


    Player Interaction


    Player safety is important to Purple Frog Global. Please treat fellow players with courtesy and respect no matter what the situation. If there is a person being rude, disrespectful or abusive to you or anyone in the PFG community please notify the admin team immediately.


    System or Game Server Abuse


    Please do not exploit any in game bugs, glitches, or errors. Report any of these issues to the admin team as soon as possible and keep it confidential until the issue is fixed. Please also report any people who are exploiting these issues to keep our server happy and healthy. Failure to do so may result in the same punishment as the violator.




    1. Please use intended channels for ark correctly (Tribe for tribe talk, Local for people nearby, etc)
    2. No spamming global chat so much that it blocks people from talking to each other.
    3. No disparaging against race, sex, religion, political groups, nationality, sexual orientation, or any other beliefs, identities or lifestyles.
    4. No attacking any community members verbally with name calling, harassment or threats of any kind.
    5. No obscenity, profanity, vulgarity that is inappropriate for anyone under the age of 13 by general standards of decency.




    No illegal discussions such as drug use, hacking, terrorism or acquisition of unauthorized copyrighted material.




    Please cooperate with any instructions a staff member gives you. Any decision made by a staff member is final and should be treated as such. Do not claim admin abuse unless you have hard evidence that there is. We take admin abuse very seriously in PFG and have strict guidelines that admins have to follow.


    PVPVE Rules


    1. Any tribes wanting to pvp with each other will have to be approved by an admin before engaging each other.
    2. PVP must be agreed upon by both/all parties before engaging.
    3. Any unsanctioned PVP actions will be met with community retaliation with admin supervision.
    4. If unsanctioned PVP continues you will be kicked from the server for the appropriate amount of time. To be determined by the admins.


    General Server Rules


    1. No building on spawn points.
    2. No intentionally blocking drops.
    3. No blocking large groups of resources.
    4. No blocking artifact caves.
    5. Do not spam build all over the map.
    6. Do not build near someone's base with the intention of blocking them from building
    7. No pillaring or saving spots to build. Building is a first come first serve situation. (If its a second or more base, little stone/metal huts do NOT count. You must be actively building in area)
    8. No sharing taming pens/wyvern catchers open for others to use. (So when trolls come out we know where they are getting there animals from)
    9. Do not sell bigger, harder to tame animals to tribes who have not progressed far enough to get their own first. (including wyverns, quetzals, large water tames, etc) This also prevents trolls from making major attacks before we identify them.
    10. Taming pens can only exist for 3 days. Please pick up after that time period or they may be deleted. Thank you for you for keeping our server clean for new players.

    I agree with Raven, and not so sure about spawn kills either.  That is just poor sportmanship.

    So I have a suggestion for PvP rules, to try and reduce collateral damage to players that don't wish to participate in PvP.

    This is actually quite simple:

    • Place big white flags on the base and it's perimiter fence where possible to show that you are not participating in PvP; This enabled players within 1 tribe with seperate bases to exclude themselves from PvP, when others from the same tribe are participating. This also prevents bases being attacked on accident because they belong to a tribe that does PvP.
    • No defensive measures against players when you're not participating in PvP; If you don't shoot and kill anyone (or your turrets) people don't have a reason to attack you. This also prevents people who are not participating in PvP to cover bases that do participate, and there also is no reason to defend when you're not supposed to be attacked. If you wish to build defenses like turrets, set them to Wild only. This also prevents people from being killed by your turrets and then wanting to raid your base to get their stuff back.
