Today we discuss how to build a secure base on a Minecraft PvP Server

On almost all Minecraft PvP servers, raiding and griefing is allowed. With this addition to the server, comes the worry of “how to make a base that wont be found?”, and today we will answer that. In this post, we will tell you how to make a nice and scure base on your favorite Minecraft PvP Server. There are a few types of bases you can make on your Minecraft PvP Server

Mining on a Minecraft Survival Server

Minecraft UHC Server: What is UHC?

In this post we talk about what a Minecraft UHC Server is

Ultra Hardcore, more commonly known as UHC, is a popular gamemode on a Minecraft UHC Server in which players or teams are put into an arena with limited borders and are supposed to use the environment around them to gather armor, weapons and other resources to fight the other players or teams.

Health and Potions on a Minecraft UHC Server

One of the major features of this gamemode is the addition of no health regeneration, meaning that you have to gather gold from mining and craft golden apples, or you need to travel to the nether and brew some potions. After you die, you cannot respawn and you are out of the game. With this in mind, you must consider every move you make so that you do not die to something silly like suffocating very early in the game...
