Hello, It has become apparant than mineplex bedrock is losing players. For example, on sunday mineplex should be booming with players. Hive hit 30k. Mineplex was at 7k. Im going to give my ideas on how to up the player count but first ill explain why mineplex is dipping in player count. Can't Join Games Bug / Can't Go To Hub Bug / Can't Invite Friends Bug This bug has been around for a while, and is really taking a toll on the player count and player experience. I have had so many people ask "why cant i go to hub" or "can one of you guys leave so i can invite my friend" or "I cant join a game" and my answer is always "its a bug, spam click it". I know how to report, but its such a known bug at this point that i think QA know about it already. This really discourages players from staying on mineplex, most people wont even ask in the chat, they'll just leave. This bug needs to be fixed asap, its one of the main things that drives new players away. Creative Housing Being Neglected There are many people who play creative housing on the reg, and the insane lag, random plot resets and the random game crashes makes players leave on a sour note. Its a shame, i love creative housing, its a unique game. It normally has 500+ players, but people like me who have had their hard work swept away wont rebuild their creations a million times, they'll just not build things / only play others houses. When will creative housing be fixed? Survival Survival is, well, a hot topic at the moment. One of the main topics is the reset. Players like me do not want a reset, because of a few things. A reset would ruin all our hard work Some players i know have put weeks into their builds, and the outcome is magnificent. I have seen bases so big that i can't see end to end of the base and my render distance is 56 chunks. Most people who build these sometimes invite me to their base, and i have to tell then about the reset. I tell them to make a forums account and state their opinion. I dont know how many people acctually listened to me, but i just hope they do. The principle of a reset If they reset, then whos to say that they wont do it again? this kind of reasoning drives players away from building cool things. You might say to this "well, another server resets every few days, and they're doing fine!" but players who came to mineplex, probably came because they didnt want resets constantly. It would kill survival. because all the experienced players that keep survival alive would probably leave (based on their replys to other threads). And there would be no motivation to play. The player count would be lower than ever. The Lag You know what im talking about, the crazy lag in the lobby and, recently, in games too. Other servers at 40-50k run smooth, mineplex is struggling at 7k. My game freezes every 30 seconds while in the lobby, and my friends tell me how im tping around when fighting people. Its not my internet, other servers run fine, and whn i lag, everyone says in chat "is everyone experiencing lag?" sometimes relogging does the trick, but its not reliable. Dont even get me started on survival lag. I can litteraly travel faster than my e pearl, crazy lag. Most of the issues' solutions are based on dev time, and i understand that theres not a lot of it. My idea for this is that we could have a road map of when updates are happening so players dont lose hope. Java Seemingly Getting More Attention (i went of on a bit of a tangent but you get the general idea lol) Java seems to be getting so much more attention compared to bedrock, more events ect. And one thing i have noticed about most subteams is that you are required to have java, but bedrock is optional. Or you need java and bedrock, but its never just bedrock. (not that i have seen). I feel like we should have subteams where one plat is the main focus. Like for QAT, instead of java and bedrock having to be required, what about bedrock QAT and Java QAT? This would encourange player without both platforms to join, and still be able to make an impact. There was 1 thing holding be back from applying for QAT. I dont have java (and i dont have discord but that can be easily fixed and isnt relevent here) That really was a sad day. I am proficient in bedrock but i dont have java, and for this reason i think that there should be a bedrock and a java version of, subteams that require you to have both. People who only play one plat might be more proficient than people who play both. I still love mineplex, and im not hating on it, if i hate mineplex, would i make such a long thread compiling ways they could get more players? I feel like theres more that i havent mentioned, but these are the things that came to mind when writing this thread. I will update the thread if i get any more ideas. If you agree with me, like and vote! Have a good day!
