UPDATE (July 11, 2012): We’ve added 5 honorable mentions to the list, and will continue to update this page periodically as servers fall into and out of favor.


While Minecraft can provide endless hours of singleplayer sandbox fun, sharing that sandbox with other players opens up an entirely new set of possibilities, such as mega-builds, player-versus-player battles, and roleplay — the RPG type, not the bedroom type. Although…

Here’s a list of Minecraft servers you should check out if you’re a multiplayer miner.



10. Herocraft Online

Herocraft strives to be the ultimate MMORPG experience for Minecraft, offering an ever-changing world with danger at every corner. The Heroes RPG plugin is an all-in-one RPG system that transforms Minecraft into a fully functional RPG, with customizable and dynamic classes. Players are able to venture out into the world to gain experience and power by defeating not only the world’s natural inhabitants but other players.


9. Buxville

Buxville is a huge and dynamic world that seeks to cultivate a community of mature, creative and motivated players. The server is never lifeless, there are plenty of plug-ins, and it touts some of the most advanced grief and theft protection available.


8. The Lord Of The Craft

The Lord Of The Craft is a roleplay Minecraft server that consistently clocks 180+ players. Set in the World of Aegis, players embark on a dangerous existence in its troubled lands. This server has the most visually impressive website design of any Minecraft server I’ve seen.


7. Kingdom of Aeonis

This MMORPG server has players building grand structures to their allied legion and waging battles against opposing races. Humans, dwarves, demons, elves, vampires, and a whole lot of lore. The folks around there take their roleplaying very seriously, so be sure to stay in character.


6. Fallout: War Never Changes

War. War never changes.

A classic line from the classic series this server is based on. It has all of the major cities of New Vegas, mixed in with a few other creatively designed buildings, a texture pack, and a few plugins — including the Factions plugin which allows you to join the Brotherhood of Steel.

Citycraft survival shouldnt be on this list, and Muttworld should be in the number 1 spot. this list is incorrect , and full of aids and fail.

i find it funny nun of these are updated 5 hours after release yet my friend updated right after it was released

Robert, because they use plugins. Your friend has a ty vanilla server with at the most 20 players, servers with this many people cannot be updated that quick because their anti-griefer plugins wouldn’t work, and their map would get blown to hell.

@WooDogg unforivencraft is one of the worst server the admins doesn’t help, there are holes in ground when you fall you can’t get out because the territory is owned by someone, chest aren’t safe, the server is gull of griffers…

Uh I just played on Legendary Craft and it blows loads, although the biggest it’s defiantly the worst mc server I have ever seen., it Spams you with vote requests constantly until you vote for their site.. the vote request bot spammed me about once every 4 seconds. Also their economy is screwed cause they give out free diamonds for voting. The admin threatened to ban me for saying ‘Jesus Christ this bot is spamming me to vote’. Saying ‘Jesus Christ’ was too hardcore for this server. Wow. Just wow. Whoever thinks it’s a good idea to give little homo’s admin rights needs a hot nail driven into their urethra.

CraftComplex

On March 8, 2012 at 6:52 pm

CraftComplex is a survival server. There is PVP, factions, ranks, and more. The server address is mc.craftcomplex.com

@Crayola agreed! Legendary Craft is seriously the WORST server on Minecraft. They think they are the best just because they spam everyone with vote requests and give out diamonds to a inflated economy. Building on that server is pointless! They reset every 3 months because they have poor management (they get hacked). Only little kids with no brains play on that server. Any other server is better than that one, really. If you do /plugins on that server they pretend they made their plugins. Every plugin on their faked list will say “LegendaryEssentials” or “Ldisguise” witch is pathetic. They should give credit where credit is due. With the amount of donations they get, you think they would fix their crappy servers. Instead, they are sending the pothead owner to college. What a waste.

Wha…no Voxel Box? I cal BS. The Voxel box is the most legendary minecraft server out there with a very mature community. Only about 10% of the people who apply actually get a chance to be on the server, so it’s immature brat- proof.

On November 30, 2012 at 2:27 pm

I don’t even know the adresses!

It said the fallout server didn’t exist

Chloe_0805

On January 3, 2014 at 7:35 pm

These are all okay servers but I believe MuttsWorld is the best server. It has:
SkyBlock, Survival, SkyWars, Creative, Pvp, and L2D
Everyone there is friendly and nice. Donation is only $5 a month and you get that for all kinds of things on ALL the servers. :) All credit to the admins and owner. Owner’s name is mumblerit
