Connectivity Issues

Our provider is experiencing connectivity issues, which may prevent you from joining our servers. In-game chat may be unresponsive during this time. Our support and API websites may be unavailable.

We expect this to be resolved soon.

Update: Inventory Crash Bug

We are trialing a fix for the inventory crash bug on our SkyWars gametype (all variants, all regions). If this trial proves successful, we will have this fix deployed to all of our games today.

We are aware that inventory opening is delayed in 1.16: this is due to Minecraft 1.16 making inventory opening server-sided, which incurs a delay based on your latency (ping) to the server. We have submitted a request for this to be reverted in a future Minecraft update.

Inventory Crash Bug

We are aware of a crash caused by opening your player inventory, which mainly happens on high latency connections. 

We are working on a fix.

In the meantime, you should be able to prevent this issue by only pressing the Open Inventory button once at a time.

Platform Update 23/06

Currently, this post only applies to our NA network. EU and AS are to follow soon.

As the Nether Update starts rolling out today, all our networks are being updated to our newest platform version. Here are some of the notable changes included:

Tweaks

  • Tweaked block-placement logic to reduce the number of failed placements when speed/jump bridging
  • Modified teleport logic to help improve a client issue that would cause a player to fall through the world
  • Improved internal packet handling for faster performance and lower latency

Features

  • Added support for R16 emotes. Emotes cannot be used during a game.
  • Fall damage is now calculated server-side
  • Block cracking is now properly updated when changing player state

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed player inventory becoming unusable in rare circumstances
  • Fixed avatars on podiums not rendering correctly
  • Fixed door placements on slabs and stairs
  • Fixed vine placement
  • Fixed auto-jump not being allowed on the server
  • Fixed potion effects persisting when switching servers



"Half-Disconnection" Bug

We have identified the cause and are preparing to roll out a fix for the so-called Half Disconnection bug, in which players stop receiving any movement and game changes, but don't get fully disconnected.

We will be rolling this patch out region-by-region over the next day.

Dynamic availability of game queues

To help players find full lobbies better at off-peak hours, we are trialing the automatic enabling and disabling of specific game queues.

Based on the total amount of players playing any variant of a game in a region, certain variants will be unavailable at off-peak. For example, if the total amount of players playing Survival Games drops below 100 players, only Survival Games: Duos will be available.

We are currently trialing this on our Asia region, which has the biggest difference in peak- and off-peak player counts. Over time, this will be rolled out to all regions.

Single variant games (Hide and Seek, DeathRun, Murder Mystery) are always available. At least one variant of multi-variant games will always be available at any given time.

Players are free to switch to other regions, that may have more queues available. If your party is big enough, you can also make use of the queue command to jump into a variant not shown in the hub menu.

Version Support Update

Minecraft 1.16: The Nether Update releases Tuesday, June 23rd.

We currently support:

  • 1.14.3
  • 1.14.6
  • 1.16.0

We will remove support for Minecraft 1.14.3 on Tuesday, July 7th. We will keep support for Minecraft 1.14.6 until at least the start of August.

Minecraft 1.16 brings improvements to skin loading and player movement for multiplayer servers, and we recommend updating from 1.14 when it releases.


Minecraft 1.16 support

With it's release approaching, we have started the rollout of support for Minecraft 1.16 (The Nether Update).

We currently have 1.16 support enabled on our Europe and Asia regions. North America will follow in the next few days.

We will keep supporting 1.14 for a while after the public release of 1.16. However, we will be dropping support for 1.14.3 shortly after 1.16 releases: upgrade to at least 1.14.6 to keep playing! 

With the 1.16 server update, we are also enabling the skin filter for ALL supported versions: learn more HERE.

Europe Region Maintenance

We will be redirecting traffic from Europe to the North America this (European) night, whilst we perform backend maintenance on it.

When it returns, you'll be able to enjoy Just Build Solos: Extended.
