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.
