Hello NetherGames players!

First off, the Executive Team wants to thank each and everyone of you for supporting us in 2019.
We've grown exponentially over the past year, breaking our concurrent network player count and setting a new one (over 500!). Our games have undergone major revamps and we've brought back a few of our old games.

Recently (and by that I mean in the past few days) you may have been suffering from connection problems, or we may have pulled the servers down for "maintenance". What we've actually done during this time is abolished the EU and US region split that we introduced earlier this year and redesigned our server infrastructure again.

There is only one 'proxy' or server that you will now join, which you can connect through the main IP play.nethergames.org.
All minigames (i.e. Bedwars, Duels, Murder Mystery & SkyWars) are now run an upgraded server located in the United States (east coast) that is more powerful than the old Canada server, while Creative and Factions will be run on the old "EU region" server in Germany.

The reason for this change is because we didn't like the split between the two regions, which ran like different networks. What we've done now is similar to what we used to do, having one proxy that handles all player connections. From a player's point of view, you won't have to change any connection details as the former region IPs have been directed to the new proxy server.

We hope that you find the new setup better!

CHRISTMAS UPDATE

Along with abolishing regions, we've also added the following:
  • Touch only queuing: You can now choose to only queue with players who use touch controls. Simply enable the feature in Profile Settings -> Preferences while in the lobby. This may extend the waiting time.
  • Low FPS mode: Experiencing horrible FPS issues from particles and the like? Enable this mode in Profile Settings -> Preferences.

THE YEAR IN REVIEW

2019 has been a big year for us. Like I said earlier, we've pushed out some new games, taken some down and revamped our existing ones. Here's some key achievements:
