You may have noticed that over the past few hours that some of our servers have been either laggy or randomly restarting, resulting in an unpleasant experience. We know that this is frustrating, but we can assure you that it's all worth it!
Today, we're happy to announce our new proxy system! Our lead developer, Dries, has been busy working on this new system, which allows us to transfer players extremely quickly from one server to another. It eliminates the long wait/getting stuck on transfer screens and giving you more time to play the games you love.
Note that for the proxy to work, you must join NetherGames through the main IP (play.nethergames.org). If you're connecting to one of our servers using a direct connect IP (e.g. sw.nethergames.org), the fast transfer system will not work and you will be forced to use the old transfer system (loading screens & long wait times).
Our new proxy is still running in beta, which means you may experience some issues. If...
In the afternoon on Easter Sunday (21st April 2019) Australian Eastern Standard Time our Discord server suffered a minor security breach in which a former server developer's account was used to prune roughly 1800 members from the server.
At this point, we can confirm that no user information has been leaked, stolen or used in a damaging manner as a result of this minor breach. It does not affect any in-game or forums players and users.
New users who have registered on our Discord server after 4pm AEST are not affected by this incident.
We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this incident may have caused to our Discord users. We are currently conducting a full investigation into this breach and taking necessary steps to prevent a similar incident from reoccurring in the future. We urge everybody who was previously a member of our Discord server to rejoin using our Discord invite link - ngmc.co/d

If you're reading this post, it's most likely you have a question about the NetherGames + HappyBedrock merger. That's okay - we're here to (hopefully) answer some of your questions.
Here are a few of the questions the community has asked us the most, and the answers to them!
I have a paid (VIP) rank on my account. Who do I contact to get it transferred?

VIP - No rank, 5 crate keys reimbursement

Bedrock - Legend
