Looking for better Minecraft servers can be a little demanding. You will find thousands of alternatives by searching online, but how can you get the best? You can find good servers, know the fun and uniqueness you will get, and understand its meaning.
Scan the lists of servers
There are websites that you can see on the lists where it has hundreds of Minecraft servers for you to look at. And because the lists are being arranged by their popularity, it is better that you have to look for active servers. Sometimes, servers are paying to be on the higher list. You have to look for servers with a “sponsored” or a star next to them.
Choose the cooperative gameplay.
When you look at the tags or the server descriptions, it needs to describe what the server will be all about. You quickly recognize it when you are playing on the popular servers before.
Check its population
The lists display will show how many players are playing as it shows the name of every server. When you like to look for a place to play minigames, or you want to have a more significant project, you have to look for a server with only a least 100 people logging in. However, when looking for a small community, you have to look for a server with fewer or 50 people online.
Look out for grief protection.
One of the favorites by players outside PvP is the feature where it is hard for the other players to ruin your buildings and items. The survival servers reveal it in the description but not all the time.
Search for any technical info
Sometimes you can find the info in the description of the server or search the tags that the server lists use to manage their servers. When you see that there is no info, you can visit the server’s website, or you can log in to the server and look in the chart for the following:
- Minecraft version
The active servers are updating their latest versions instantly. When the version number is lower than yours, you can change the version you are using with the “edit profile” button. It will be visible once you open Minecraft.
When you like to play using your mod, you can try to look for a server that lets you use it. There are servers that you need to install a mod before joining.
- Online-time percentage
It lets you know how many times a server is online and few websites are on the list.
It will depend on how fast or slow the server is. It will be hard to tell without logging in, and when you see in the server forum that there are posts about complaining about how lag it is, you have to stay away.
Check out the server.
You have to check the server for you to look for something more. When you are on the correct server, there have to be admins or mods online to assist with any problems you will encounter and know about the server’s rules and features. And you can join the games and conversations and see whether you are enjoying it.
