    Whenever you join the server, you spawn in a 'hub' that has nothing in it besides scenery. However if you're like me and only play one specific thing, this can be quite a burden to you since you have to go to the compass, choose your desired destination, and then you have to run all the way over to the sign that takes you to the game that you want to play. Since the whole 'cubecraft 2.0' thing, the one thing that players hated the most about the update was how far you had to run to get to your favorite gamemode, and how much more difficult it was than the simple system that we had before, especially since the server has grown since the old cubecraft, and how much laggier the server is now when you're changing lobbies.

    Here's the suggestion;

    Let us choose which lobby we spawn in whenever we join the server.

    You could make this a donators perk or something, and it'll be decided via the settings menu. The next time you join the server (lets say for example in the settings menu somebody selected the arcade server), they won't spawn in the boring lobby with nothing in it, but instead they'll spawn in the arcade server! :)

    What's everybody else's opinion on this; do you like the idea, or does it just sound like something that only lazy people will enjoy? I think we've all gotten used to the changes now and how long it takes to get to your desired location, but it couldn't hurt to make everybody's lives a little easier and save them some time when they join the server every morning.

    Great idea for the lazy people. Too lazy to write more.

    I like the idea. :)

    Just the way our system works servers constantly "move". Meaning that servers "move" to wherever we need them the most (Arcade, Skywars...). So Idk if that would cause problems if players could choose their spawnpoint o.o
    And I do not think that anyone would even want to spawn in hub then anymore. For what even? There is nothing there but the portals to the games you can easly tp to with your compass. The builders would´ve build it kinda for nothing then :/

    I wouldn´t have to walk "that far" then anymore though. It is basically just two clicks, then 3 jumps and one more click till I am in Skyblock. But it could be nice to just spawn in the Free Build lobby :D

    It wouldn't want the builders to feel as though they built it for nothing, but this refers to the point on how there's nothing there anyways. People only go to the hub because they have to; not because they want to.

    That said, it could be used for testing new gamemodes, or could be an alternative spawn to the snowdown game that is supposedly being re-added next christmas :)

    What's the hub gonna be for? Don't agree, there's a hub for a reason.

    To choose your game? Like I see your point here, but the hubs kinda made for tons of people spawning in at once, which the other servers don't have so many slots.

    The hub doesn't choose your destination, the compass does. Nobody 'hangs out' in the hub, they all go to skyblock or creative, it just makes sense to make it a little more convenient for them.

    I've seen plenty of people jumping about in the hub for over an hour.

    I don't see anybody complaining if they could set where they spawn when they join the server. It'd save everybody a lot of time in the long run.

    Having this on bungee would be quite complex, I love this idea though. +1

    Maybe it could be coded by Rubik, or a developer idk...

    Not everyone would have to change their spawn, only if they wanted to. Everyone who disagrees dosen't have to use the feature if they don't want ._.
