As we wait for the official release of Minecraft 1.17 later this year, Cubic Worlds has recently activated Chaos Mode as we have some fun on the bleeding edge of vanilla snapshots! You can find more details on our Discord inside the #chaos-mode-info channel.
Just today we’ve updated to put ourselves on snapshot 21w14a, and at the same time, I’ve switched us over from using our main host into a temporary spell of hosting the server myself.
Given that we are only running a simple vanilla server with no plugins, the amount of lag being experienced over the past couple of weeks has raised my suspicions. This period of selfhosting will let us make a comparison so that I can better understand the situation.
So, with that in mind, make sure that you don’t use the play.cubicworlds.net shortcut to connect – use the new, temporary IP of 18.104.22.168.
