    Hi everyone,

    Over the past few days, we have seen significantly increased numbers of players across our network. Over the weekend we consistently peaked at over 22,000 players across both our Bedrock and Java platforms.

    We understand many of you are now out of school, isolating, or otherwise stuck at home. We have been working over the weekend and alongside our suppliers in order to increase capacity as quickly as we can to ensure that you all can continue to play during these unprecedented times.

    For those who are interested we are:
    • Increasing the number of nodes in our database cluster to help handle the increased load from both the players and Skyblock
    • Increasing the number of frontends to support more concurrent connections across Bedrock and Java
    • Increasing the size of our game server pool. We have actually used up all the available stock from our provider so are working with them to replenish the stock or to switch the model of server we use.
    As a temporary measure, we are increasing the party limits across all ranks by 2 on the Java network and by 1 on the Bedrock network.

    Some more stats:
    • Our egressing bandwidth has doubled to 7Gbps - that’s 1,400 HD Netflix streams at once!
    • We can now support another 1,500 games running after getting a load more dedicated servers.
    • We've added a total of 4TB of RAM so far!

    It really isn't our position to advise on anything related to Coronavirus and COVID-19 however the following organisations have provided resources for members of the public which we would like to draw your attention to:
    Stay safe and the team here at CubeCraft wish you the best of health to you and your family!

    Thanks for that, it might even help with my recently high ping!

    Additionally, to everyone who are staying home due to the virus spread, please remember to stay as safe as possible by remaining in clean environments and avoiding crowds etc!

    I'm situated right next to China (HK), and after many months I know first-hand how difficult it will be to live with this spread imminent. So good luck and much love to everyone <3
