Crazy Growth

Over the last few months, we've grown at an unexpected rate. Take a look at the milestones below for when we broke our concurrent player records:

Spoiler

 

1057 players - June 10, 2018

1208 players - January 12, 2019

1257 players - January 13, 2019

1275 players - February 25, 2019

1326 players - March 10, 2019

1353 players - March 16, 2019

1441 players - March 17, 2019

1516 players - April 13, 2019

1736 players - April 14, 2019

2063 players - May 4, 2019

2271 players - May 5, 2019

2469 players - May 24, 2019

3231 players - May 25, 2019

3374 players - May 26, 2019

3593 players - June 2, 2019

3761 players - June 9, 2019

3876 players - June 23, 2019

 

A year ago when SLG took over Minehut, there were 100k registered users and 1100 players. Now, we regularly have 3500 players on during the week and we broke 400k registered users last week. Even in the last month since we increased the default ram to 2gb and slots to 20, we went from 2500 concurrent users to 3500! That being said, we have to make some changes to make sure we have room to continue to grow.

 

Today's Changes

  • Our free plan is back to 1gb of ram and 10 player slots
  • If your server was started after the 20 slot change went into effect on May 20th and before this post was made, your server will have 20 slots, but 1gb of ram.
    • If you change back to 10 slots on the server.properties, you won't have the option to go back to 20 for free, and there's no way to go back from there.

The process for flagging servers to have 20 slots was automatic and was applied to 117,907 servers.

Web Panel Issues

This is another piece of Minehut that is hitting limits with how many players we have. We need to make some changes to let it run more smoothly at this high capacity. A temporary patch was applied to try to buy us some time, but we're working on doing a proper fix asap.

I can definetly see why this is needed, but what about servers that have been up years before this happened? It would be Nice to still be able to have the 2 gb Version. But there may be other technical stuff i don't understand that mean it can't be done.

😥 may have to switch to a paid host because of this 😥

I mean you can still upgrade to 2gb with us if you'd like. 2gb is a lot to be giving away for free and you can't find that anywhere else.

Nah, switching to a paid host.The server dies to like 50 blocks placed.Or 30 blocks of a block that has gravity..

Nah, byne Minehut, had a good time..

Whyyyy?

My server now dies from 50 blocks moved

We added a ton of nodes to our backend a few minutes ago to help spread out the load more. Should help with lag in game.

They weren't. You still have 20 if your server was up before this post.

20 slots isn't a purchasable plan. It goes 15 -> 25 if you're getting them with credits. The plans are listed in the top post.
