    Actual post - here

    So... I'm not entirely sure if this is the right forum or place to post this, or even if this is an appropriate topic to bring up since it's all about a seperate server, but I stumbled upon this news while browsing YT today. It appears that the Hive, once a top-tier MC server, is shutting its doors on the java edition side of things. This is crazy because, some newer players may not know this but Hive has been a staple in the MC community since practically the explosion of it on Youtube with content creators like SkyDoesMinecraft among others. I personally have many memories playing on this server, games like The Herobrine being a very fond one back when players could only join through specific ips, and others such as Trouble in Mineville, Cowboys and Indians, even their survival games.

    I think this goes to show that times are changing. I know I posted a thread with a differing opinion that minecraft is not dead. And I think that's true, the game as a genre and as a brand is not dead, nor is it dying. But it isn't in the place it once was in a time's past. The landscape has changed immensely - and if HiveMC shutting its java edition doors doesn't show this, then I don't know what will.

    I will be forever grateful for the Hive. I was never a staple in their community like I became here when I applied and was accepted as a staff member, but I did play on there numerous times since my dad bought me the game back in 2012. This really is a bittersweet feeling, knowing that the end is near. It makes me wonder how I'll react when this server eventually shuts its doors. Defo gonna be rough.

    But hey, Hive will still be on bedrock. Though, it's not the same, and I don't think it ever will be. But we'll always have the memories we make with those along the way.

    it has been microsoft's goal to kill java edition from the moment they acquired mojang so they can push their shitty microtransactions on the bedrock edition, first by bundling minecraft with windows 10 for free, then the EULA. microsoft can suck my ass shoving their shitty apps down everyone's throats, just like how windows 10 comes with so much crap bloatware such as xbox gaming bar, bing maps, microsoft edge, forcing bing search in windows search, etc. which all literally can not be removed. why tf do i need xbox gaming bar when i have never owned an xbox and never plan on owning an xbox. meanwhile all the apps they push are complete garbage compared to the competition. windows 10 mail is the slowest and buggiest mail client i've ever used. i could go on all day about all the problems i have with windows 10. windows 7 was better in every regard. they're trying to create their own version of the "apple ecosystem" except they're utterly failing at it because their management is too incompetent to make good software

    anyway now that a legitimate top tier minecraft server hivemc is closing maybe people can finally stop making shitty suggestions on how to revive this minecraft server

    been saying this for years now, (just look at what i said on your previous thread)

    watch as next week some new guy makes a suggestion thread calling for the return of x minigames, advertise more, "lazy owners", etc.

    there have been many servers that shut down already and many more to come, we will be one of those

    I never really played on many servers, but the hive was one of the first ones I did play on. Some of the minigames were really enjoyable, but I understand why they are closing now. With Microsoft pushing the bedrock edition more than the java edition, it is to be expected that java versions are closing.

    I mean yea... the cross platform ability and imo the much better server quality and their ability to have unique things without having to download like 12 mod packs. It's all just... there. Some of the mechanical aspects are also better. A decent number of redstone things work better on bedrock imo.

    Dude, I grew up with this way before I joined this place. Just to see it shut down like that makes me sad, always appreciate what you have because you never know when it'll leave.

    However, if this is the best decision for the owners then we'll accept that it's gone and we all had fun on it, but still, it will hurt. Will miss that place, practically raised me before I even joined here.
