Server Hardware Upgrade Planned

  1. 4 months ago

    We were hoping to see a major performance improvement with the release of 1.16, however, it seems like Mojang has let us down once again. For the last 6 years, we have been running the best hardware money can buy, we think that AMD is now able to provide better performance so we are going to give them a try. We want you over the next few days to closely observe the differences, is it better? worse? can you not tell?

    In order to inconvenience the least amount of players the upgrade should happen tomorrow morning around 6 am PST, 9 am EST, and take about 15 minutes to 1 hour. During this time we will stop the server, migrate the map, and change the DNS. You will experience a temporary outage while your DNS takes time to update. Nothing should be lost during the upgrade.

    We hope this upgrade will reduce lag and make the overall experience better for all. If you have any questions please ask me.
