Version Support Update
As mentioned in our previous update post, due to a recent multiplayer authentication change by Minecraft, players have been unable to join The Hive when playing on versions below 1.20.
As a result of this change, and in the interest of the safety of our players, The Hive has now discontinued support for versions below 1.20.
Whilst we are aware that some players have been able to join on older versions using modified clients, we cannot verify the safety of such modifications, and the files used to achieve this. Continuing to support these versions would encourage players to seek out these methods, and potentially put them at risk of downloading malicious content.
Whilst we regret the way this change was pulled forward, we are now able to fast-track the use of features and blocks released in Minecraft versions newer than 1.18.
Please note we are not accusing any existing modifications and/or clients of being malicious - we are unable to check every such modification, and even if this was possible, we would be unable to ensure that future updates to these modifications remained safe.
