Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose Paranoid

Zergs suck - seriously. Nobody likes going on a server, facing a group of 10+, and getting owned. Our Solo, Duo, and Trio servers have restricted group limits.

Doing this levels the playing field for you and your teammates. No more getting decimated with unfair numbers.

Take, for example, our group limit rule on the Solo/Duo/Trio Servers.


  • 3 Players MAX: in any base, clan, or roaming group.

  • You can rotate out members IF one of your members is offline. Meaning a player who is solo or from another clan can join your ROAMING GROUP ONLY. You are not allowed to bring them to your base.

  • IF a player has stopped playing for the wipe, you MUST kill the sleeper, kick them from your clan, remove their bag, and clear your TC/Turret Auth.

  • Being caught with four or more players, you will be either banned or given a final warning. If you receive a warning, you will receive a longer ban than someone who received the initial rest of the wipe ban.


We encourage community spirit on Paranoid, but, if you are breaking the rules by PVPing or Raiding as more than the intended group limit, you risk being banned.

When is wipe?!

Wipes times are Server Specific! If it's the forced/developer wipe (the first Thursday of the month) it will be shortly after its release and will replace that weeks Friday wipe. After that, it's every Monday and Friday at 03:00pm (15:00) Local Server Time.
  • - Amsterdam (EU)
  • - New York (US)
  • - Chicago (US)

Server Rules

Our server rules are enforced by our community administration team. You can find an exhaustive list of our rules on our Discord. These rules are the players responsibility to understand and follow. Our rules are always subject to change at managements discretion and may be changed without notice. We kindly request all players to ensure they regularly check server rules and if they're unsure about server rules, to contact our staff members by means of the Support Bot in our Discord Server with any questions.

General Rules

  • – No Racism/Hate Speech.
  • – No NSFW Content.
  • – No Discussing Cheats in Any Form.

Global Server Rules

  • – English only in global chat.
  • – No Doxxing/DDoS threats.
  • – Players with an EAC of 60 days or less will not be allowed to play.
  • – Walling off large & small monuments (Dome, Oxum's etc.) is not allowed; Quarries Excluded.
  • – No more than 3 layers of high external/wooden walls around your base.
  • - Abusing any exploits will result in a ban.

It's not hard regarding group limits. No more than the specific group limit and players must be in a clan to play together. Raiding/Roaming with anyone who is not part of your clan is NOT allowed. 6 Max - No more than 6 players in any base or raiding/roaming group. Trio - No more than 3 players in any base or raiding/roaming group. Duo - No more than 2 players in any base or raiding/roaming group. Solo - EVERYONE is your enemy. There are no excuses.

Group Limit Rules

It's not hard regarding group limits. No more than the specific group limit and players must be in a clan to play together. Raiding/Roaming with anyone who is not part of your clan is NOT allowed.

6 Max Server
  • - No more than 6 players in any base or raiding/roaming group.

Trio Servers
  • - No more than 3 players in any base or raiding/roaming group.

Duo Servers
  • - No more than 2 players in any base or raiding/roaming group.

Solo Servers
  • - Every player is considered to be your enemy. There is no viable excuse for being found with another player.
  • - Peace treaties are not allowed with other players. This includes agreements not to kill eachother.
  • - You MUST use our /trade command to trade with other players.

Swapping out Players (Non-Solo Servers)

You can rotate out members ONLY IF one of your members is offline. Raiding/Roaming with anyone who is not part of your clan is NOT allowed.

If a player has stopped playing then you MUST do the following:

  • – Kill the sleeper.
  • – Kick them from your Clan/Team.
  • – Remove their sleeping bags.
  • – Clear TC and Turrent Auth.
  • – Change ALL CODES.

EVERYONE BUT YOUR TEAM IS YOUR ENEMY. This also does not mean you can roam with an AFK player in your base (They still count as an online member of your team). If you are caught with 4 or more players you will be either given a last warning or you will be banned. If you continue to break our rules even after warning kicks from our staff you will be banned for a longer period of time than a player who is outright banned for teaming



Rules have been updated as of June 2022.

Do admins play?

We believe Admin being allowed to play servers they have power on is a conflict of interest.

Our admin cannot unvanish or even interact with anything in the world - they are spectators, here to monitor and nothing else.

Terms and Conditions

By purchasing one of our products, you agree and accept that you have read and understood our terms of service. If you have purchased any of the following: VIP, VIP+, MVP. You will receive 50% of the total shown on the store in each of your two uses of the /kit command of which will reset every wipe. Kits are per server - we will move your kits between servers once per 30 days. We delay access to some kits after the server has wiped to help with server balancing. We will not offer any refunds after you have claimed your kits, once these items are in the economy of the server they cannot be reclaimed. Shop points will wipe once a month on the developer forced wipe. This is always on the first Thursday of the month; please keep this in mind when purchasing points. Please be careful where you spawn your kits, they are split in two to lessen the blow if you lose them. However, we will not replace anything lost in-game due to death caused by any means, nor will we replace due to being raided. We block certain kits and items for specific amounts of time to balance the server between paying players and non-paying players. We reserve the right to ban you without refund from the server for breaking server rules, having a previously EAC or Developer banned account with a ban less than 60 days old, defamatory, abusive, hateful, threatening, spam or spam-like, likely to offend, contains adult or objectionable content, contains personal information of others, risks copyright infringement, encourages unlawful activity or otherwise violates any laws. Bans are subject to the full discretion of the server admins and rules can be changed at any time. Refund requests due to issues concerning lag, game glitches, delayed delivery, or any other issues are subject to the discretion of the Paranoid team. All purchases are usually delivered within 10 minutes. However, this can be delayed in rare circumstances for up to 48 hours. We reserve the right to alter, update, or remove perks, privileges, permissions, services or products at any time. All products and services offered by Paranoid are timed unless otherwise specified. These terms may be changed at any time without notice. All official communication must be done through our Discord Support Bot or through our Support E-Mail Address. If you do not agree with these terms, please do not use this service.

Why is my kit only giving half?

Donation kits are split in half on redemption to prevent total loss in the event of an unexpected death at the hands of another player. They are separated by a 900-second timer, which makes claiming them both very simple.
