Removal of 1.17 Version Support
As of today, The Hive no longer supports 1.17 versions of Minecraft. Players will need to use version 1.18.0 or above to play.
Support for older versions of Minecraft is removed to allow us to use blocks and features that are introduced in newer versions of the game and to improve performance for our players.
We have decided to remove support for 1.17 a little earlier than usual, this is because only a tiny percentage (less than 1%) of players still used a 1.17.X version to join The Hive.
