Minecraft Survival Servers are a great way to enjoy the survival gameplay that you love with other players at your side. The survival servers operate on the same principles that the offline game uses, but there are some differences as well.
Many times on the online survival servers there is an economy in place. What this means is that the resources that you harvest can be traded in at a store for currency to purchase other resources. What this does is allow you to gather the resources that you truly love to gather, and then trade them in for the items that you simply don’t have the time for.
Another big change between offline and online is the number of players playing in the game. When you get many other human players, the whole dynamic of the game changes drastically. Now you not only have to worry about the creepers and spiders getting you in the night, but you have other players trying to take what you worked so hard to get.
No longer is having a good solid house with a door enough for your security. Now you have to be crafty and hide your home in places where people won’t think to look. You have to make alliances with other players to protect what you own, and you have to be a whole lot smarter.
There are numerous Minecraft survival servers across the web and there is an especially large number of servers in server directories that you can look through. One exceptional survival server is at games.moncraft.net.
When browsing through the different servers you should look at any mods that have been applied. Read about the gameplay that you can expect when you join the server. Also pay attention to the number of players that are on a server. You can expect pretty peaceful gameplay on a server with only a few people but when you start getting into the larger servers things get more hectic than before.
While you won’t have peaceful play on a large server you will have more things to do and people to talk to. Not only that but the economy will be stronger with more raw materials floating around for the taking. Utilize all of this excess to get the materials you really need the most.
To join one of these online servers you simply go to the multiplayer section of your Minecraft game. Now enter in the address of the server as well as the port. It is important to add both details without putting a space between the address and the port. Then you simply press join and you are on your way to a server filled with people to play with. Make friends with people on the servers and join up with them regularly for even more fun.
