5. PirateCraft

We all like servers with a designated theme, right? Well, I certainly do. In this server, you can become a pirate and strive to rule the seas with your crew. There are a lot of ships, and you can even build your own ship and sail with it to the sea. I don’t know how that’s possible in Minecraft, but I guess it is.

You can also install cannons to your ships and fight with other ships and this server experience has definitely been the most enjoyable Minecraft server experience for me for a long time. Definitely give this one a try.

What’s awesome about PirateCraft:

  • You can build your own ships and sail it! Is there anything else I need to add?
  • Okay, if I have to add one more thing, because of the amount of players on the server is not too high, the experience is more intimate, and I usually tend to enjoy servers that don’t have ten thousand players in it at one time. Also, there is almost no downtime for the server.

Server Details:

  • IP: mc.piratemc.com
  • Player limit: 50
  • Uptime: 97.2%

Probably to best server to play Pixelmon Reforged, this is a great server with a long list of players and a whole lot to do. Even if you are bored with Pixelmon, there is Skyblock, Survival, Fanctions, Creative, Prison, and more!

If you don’t want to install Pixelmon on your client, there is also a vanilla version of the server with a lot of different gameplay types and minigames. A lot of things to do, if you give this one a try, there is a high chance that you will find something to do that will be really fun for you!

What’s awesome about Complex:

  • With the newest version of Pixelmon, you can catch over 850 Pokémon with your friends and other players.

3. Hypixel

Okay, you’ve seen the player limit. If you haven’t, please look at it. Okay, deep breaths. With a server that is the size of a small country, I think it’s fair to say that you can find something to do here. Our favorite adventure map creators created this server some years ago and built a lot, and I mean a lot of different minigames for it.

You can play Megawalls, Warlords, Blitz:SG, and over 35 unique games in the server. One of the largest servers in Minecraft, there are some minigames that cannot be found on different servers. Definitely give this one a try if you haven’t already.

What’s awesome about Hypixel:

  • With over 35 minigames, there is a lot to do here. For some minigames and games, you can’t even find them on other servers. Some of them are completely unique to Hypixel.
  • With 200000 player limit, I don’t think you will be waiting in a queue anytime soon. Also, it’s quite impressive that there is no downtime for a server this big. Definitely a plus!

  • Player limit: 200000

2. 2B2T

Here is an interesting server. One of the oldest servers (it might even be the oldest Minecraft server still standing) in Minecraft, this server is difficult to get into. With an 80-player count, you will be waiting in a queue for some time, the server lags a lot, there is a high chance you will not be able to leave the starting area, and the server crashes a lot.

Okay, what? Then, why would anyone want to play here? Well, because of the chaos. The server is a no rules, everything goes kind of server with the same map that is almost a decade old. Everywhere is desecrated, you can’t protect your builds, there are no plugins to ease your play.

This is a social experiment of what Minecraft players could do in a no-rules place in a decade. Well, turns out they do a lot.

What’s awesome about 2B2T:

  • Chaos and the most bare-bones vanilla experience, if you can get out of the spawn zone, this is one of the most fascinating Minecraft servers out there.
  • With the no-rules approach, you can use scripts, cheat, dupe, do everything you want. Anything goes in the server. So, play at your own risk.

Server Details:

  • IP: 2b2t.org
  • Player limit: 80
  • Uptime: 95,8%
  • Check out their website here: 2b2t.org


1. Mineplex

One of the most well-known servers in Minecraft’s history, Mineplex is one of the few servers that are officially partnered with Mojang Studios. Yes, the developers of Minecraft! Crazy. Well, it is for a good reason.

The server has been around since 2013 and has millions of unique players monthly. The list of minigames is too much to get into. If you like to, you can look at the minigame list yourself. Overall, it would be fair to say that you will definitely, and I mean definitely, find something to do here that is a perfect fit for you. Or maybe you will find a few dozen of them, who knows. Here is the list:


What’s awesome about Mineplex:

  • You can play dozens and dozens of different minigames in Mineplex. With different minigames that require different skills and things to do, there is something for everyone here.
  • With millions of different players, the community is extremely large and there are even designated wikis for the server. Probably the biggest Minecraft server ever, this is the best place to start, for sure.
