So, I cannot join Cubecraft because of this... @Tacosbefriends @halothe23 @Lucariatias
I have the exact same problem
Well uh... I'm not really sure why you tagged me lol
Cubecraft occasionally doesn't let new players join. I'm not 100% certain on why this is, but my guess is it's either a measure to reduce lag when working on new additions (/house, new minigame maps, etc.) or it's a problem with Mojang's servers (though it only seems to be Cubecraft that's affected by this.)
Here ; http://xpaw.ru/mcstatus/ I think they're all down
I tagged you coz yours smart with coding and servers and stuff ;3
If you refresh every so often, you can see the number of players online is slowly decreasing, meaning no new players are getting on.
You can also check here for server statuses: http://xpaw.ru/mcstatus/
Also, when i try and join any other server with 200+, it has the same :/
Well now I feel silly for not refreshing the page before posting.
D'aww, I'm flattered. <3
Yes, the login servers have gone down. Please just be patient for them to become back up.
OKAY BAE <3 XD
Problem resolved, Locked.
No, we aren't the ones stopping people from joining. The session servers hosted by Mojang are the ones that allow any server to authenticate you as a player, else everyone could steal anyone's username, which we don't want. If those servers are unavailable, we can authenticate you as "tacosbefriends" and to avoid users being able to get that name even if they are not you, we simply stop anyone from logging in when those servers can't be used to make sure its you.
And, by far, we are not the only ones affected by it. Every MC server that does this authentication process (online mode) will stop letting you in when they cannot authenticate you.
(And, yes I know the thread is closed. But screw the forum settings.)
