As you may have noticed, over the last few days, survival has been almost unplayable due to the lag. This is down to the software which we use to run the server being very unstable on 1.16.4.
We have tried and tried to resolve it over the last week, trying methods which both myself and Fred have never had to try. We eventually brought it to a poll on the website. The poll asked whether people would prefer to deal with the lag, or have a new, temporary map until we can fix it.
As you can see from the graph below, players have voted massively for having a temporary map.
At some point at midday tomorrow (UK time), the current survival server will temporarily be swapped out for a mostly vanilla experience. This means there will be a fresh world, fresh inventories, and fresh statistics. THIS DOES NOT REPLACE THE CURRENT SERVER. This server will be in place until we can safely call the lag issue resolved.
We really do hope that we can resolve this quickly, but in the meantime, we would rather a smaller server that people can actually enjoy rather than a full-feature one that is too laggy.
- We're swapping out survival for a temporary, vanilla server.
- Inventories, builds, and levels will not transfer.
- This update is TEMPORARY. The full feature server WILL return.
- The same rules apply.
- You can expect this change after midday UK time.
Of course, we've still got creative, and the brand new parkour server!
