I’ve noticed that there aren’t as many cloud servers with people on it. Some worlds just have 1-4 players connected, and some others just have no players. I randomly joined around 20 servers, about 5 of them either had hacked items or content, or inappropriate content. About another 7 servers had only 1-4 players on them, and there was not really any chat going on, on any of those 7 servers. The other couple were just more abandoned and didn’t have any admins/mods on it.
Also, when you type one space into the server search, you see the most popular servers. The first 5 servers shown had 9-16 players on servers. The last 5 servers shown had 3-9 players on servers. A while ago, 5 servers had 16 players on the top server list. Compared to this, there are hardly any people on these servers. 5 servers on the top server list have 3 players on it.
So if I were to estimate how many public/searchable servers have people on them, it’s approximately 50. I know that sounds like a lot, but other days, when I joined random servers, I joined around 25 different ones. Unlike today, where I even joined one server with people on it randomly, twice, maybe even three times! In the past, there have been literally approximately 100 servers that are public/searchable, that have at least 1 player on each server.
Now the problem with all this, is that not many users are joining on servers. People may think that “it’s not a big deal”. But it honestly can be! Just for example, if not many servers are being joined, and not people aren’t adding time crystals. Could that mean that more people aren’t spending money on time crystals? This may not be true, because Singleplayer servers are another deal. However, tc piracy is already a problem, more people not buying time crystals, this could effect some things, too.
But for another example, without many people joining servers, this could effect the community in general! Not many people joining servers, could possibly mean more people are leaving the community. Again, Singleplayer is another deal, but multiplayer can be important, even in the ways people don’t expect. Time crystals in crafting are only used up to 200 in an item, that’s one dollar of time crystals. But when people want to make servers, this could be around ten dollars, or even adding credit would be ten dollars!
It’s unfortunate that not many servers are active. It can get more active during different times, but it still isn’t the same amount of people! This “problem” isn’t everything, maybe it’s not even a considered problem. But in my opinion, this could be an issue.
Version 1.7 could also either have an increase in players, a decrease in players, or stay the same amount of players. I hope it increases, or at the least stays the same amount.
But to solve this problem, people could buy more time crystals, and make more servers. That could at the least, help people in the community increase, and Majic Jungle can get more money.
I appreciate you reading this, I hope we can work together to have servers even more active!
Edit: Noticed the top server names aren’t okay, I somehow didn’t realize this at the time.
