Hey there. I don't know if they should be banned, but let me give you a little background on what I'm bringing up. I didn't know about this site - save for the rules - until today. A friend from another ARK server suggested this server to come to when we decided as a tribe that our previous server just wasn't gaining enough people to not die out over time.Other: --
Anyway, that said, we got here two nights ago onto the 10xXP 3xTame etc server.
The very first night we were raided. That is against your rules, but when I brought it up, it was brushed aside. Apparently the tribe that did the raiding - the "Freemasons" - had some falling out with their membership. Okay, we have no problem with being raided, but we have an issue with people who clearly don't follow the rules. I asked about admins, but was told the issue was "handled". Fine, we're new to the server, figured no one knows us, best to just keep working on building etc.
So night two comes - nothing happens, I inquire about the raiding, people say "it's PVP get over it" essentially. Again, I have no issue with being raided, I have an issue with it being raiding clearly new players - we were in cloth and some pieces of hide and had 0 dinos. They took the only thing of worth in our base, which was a blueprint we got out of a drop. Big whoop. Just don't like that there's rules that state this shouldn't happen and did happen.
Night three - tonight - we put down an outpost finally, and get some walls in. It's on a cliff, there's no way it's blocking anything off. Freemasons - AGAIN - ask us to let them into our outpost. I say no, because there's no reason for them to be there and it's a dead end. Then this guy Dakota (Godsdownhill) and all his tribe start talking about how they'll just blow the thing up then. I tell them to go ahead, waste the explosives for no reason, because it's not blocking off anything. If they want a reason to use their explosives on new players to the server, they don't really need to concoct one.
So we go up there to see if they decided to blow a hole for no reason, they didn't, instead they had people on top of the base with an assault rifle to shoot at us. They were shooting at someone in cloth armor. LOL. If that isn't griefing new players, I don't know what is.
My point is this: Freemasons already broke the rules one time, now it's a second time for griefing new players. I don't really know if it's that interesting for us to bother to stay on this server if this is the impression we've been given in our first couple nights of being here.
Thanks for reading this thing that probably needed a TL;DR section, but I felt it needed to be brought to someone's attention, administration-wise.
