    Nothing much to say, I just think this server has a lot of US players and it would be really good to have a US proxy. It would greatly decrease the laggers on the server.

    Rip can't edit the poll mod please change the poll to "Should there be a US sister server?"

    Also, can everyone who voted no please explain why they disagree.

    You know that CubeCraft Games is based in the U.K., right?
    I dont think Cubecraft is ready for that. CubeCraft's Motto: The More people on the server, the better, so why make two?:)

    The reason there should be a separate server so us players actually get decent ping and don't have to ruin your games with 900 ms. Ranks, bans, mutes and stats would stay the exact same between the 2 and anyone can play on either if they want. The main reason why cube hasn't done this yet is because it costs a lot of money, but if they were to do it I think it might make more players want to play.

    What do you mean by "proxy"? A proxy server is a server that only forwards player packets to the actual game server. If they only add a proxy server in the US without separate game servers, that wouldn't automatically solve the lag issue. Maybe they could slightly improve latency by some network trickery, but US players would now have the delay to the us proxy in addition to the delay from the proxy to the game servers.

    I think what he meant is a new sister server in America, yes I understand that that is what a proxy is.

    When I wanted to vote yes, this happened: https://gyazo.com/984377490742087ca3f90de66c4d01e7 :p
    I get your point, there are many players playing in the US, so there should definitely be a host in the US. People from the US should ge tthe same in-game experience as European players.

    if you want a proxy see magnificantspam's post

    if you want another server then lol no. There wouldn't be enough players on that server, and because a half or quarter or whatever of the CCG players have gone to the US server there wouldn't be enough on the main server either and then everyone would leave CubeCraft and CubeCraft wouldn't get donations and then CubeCraft would shut down and that would be the end of CubeCraft. ;)

    Hold up I will need to leave my computer for this

    This decision on whether I should support it or not will take some deeper thoughts

    *hmm to set up a host (assuming it is what you mean instead of proxy) you would need someone to move to the United States to then set it all up... while also needing to make sure someone doesn’t hack into that side and shut down that hosting however the server is from the UK*


    After a nice shower I have decided no

    (P.S. I know they aren’t referring to proxy based on what Spam said so I am only guessing what they do mean, pls nobody hate me if I am wrong about what they mean)

    This is what I meant.

    I think you may be misunderstanding me. Im not saying cubecraft should make an entirely new server I'm saying they should have a sister server to connect to. They will have the same exact playerbase, it is NOT an entirely new server. It's simply a second place for Americans to get faster ping from.
    I'm sure they could figure something out. The likelihood of their host getting hacked is quite low too, nothing to worry about.

    They technically don't have to fly to the USA. There could be someone they email or make plans with via the Internet. Also a plane ticket here is the minimum of their worries, paying for server hosting is quite expensive I'd think so unless they get more money by selling ranks, then this wouldn't be beneficial. Their server I'm France hasn't been hacked yet, what makes you think a different one will be?

    What is meant is the exact same copy and pasted server with all attributes attached to each (bans mutes ranks). Just hosted in a different region so others can get better ping.

    Ussually you can connect to the other server while still on the server, this way everyone can experience better internet connections so us Americans don't have to be pinglords, the best my ping ever was is 149. And I have Ethernet. It would be awesome if I didn't need to pinglord you to death and I can actually experience good connection.

    I’m very confused. You’re suggesting they copy and paste CubeCraft into a server connectable from CubeCraft hosted in the USA? Can you explain again please.

    I would love it if they hosted a sister Cubecraft in the USA. My ping is always over 150-200+, so I think it would make the lagg a lot less.

    I'll try to explain it as basically as possible. Currently, people from the US have a connection averaging 200ms (otherwise known as ping) which is annoying to deal with. Having a sister server does nothing to split the playerbase or the community, it just shortens the distance for packets to reach the server. So what used to be 200 milliseconds of delay shortens to about 60 milliseconds of delay on average, a huge improvement.

    Yes and no. Yes because that way players in the US could get better ping. No because it would split the community like the 1.9 update. Not saying 1.9 is bad, I like it, its just that having both 1.8 and 1.9 completely split the community and players still today trash talk both versions. Minus the trash, it would kind of be the same with splitting the server a lot more.
