I and a few others have noticed an issue with manas servers regarding lag, and its that they have wayyy too many unnecessary servers that almost nobody plays on. Mana has 9 different gamemodes and of which 4 have less than 50 online players (some like creative have like 4 players) and we think thats a waste of money for dacon and it just makes the other bigger servers laggier for not that big of a reason nor do those servers usually generate enough income anyways. So my suggestion is that they remove Earth, Factions/Kitpvp, Creative and Islands from mana to invest more time in other bigger realms like SB, Oly, and Survival. And haters gonna hate but i think this is the best for mana in general


And theres also the staffing issue which i forgot to mention where new staff join these barely played realms instead of joining the more useful realms that need them

remove creative, anarchy and factions, merge islands with skyblock - earth with survival.

the main realms don't get enough attention and aren't working properly on their own well enough to spread resources onto 10 ( !!! ) different realms

not the issues causing the lag :) sorry. the hardware the server uses was super upgraded not too long ago. its not 'how much its processing' but rather 'how/what its processing'. as the game goes through new updates, plugins and such need updates, this is bound to cause optimization issues. but dont fret cause mr cullanPp n others working on it

All realms have their own isolated servers

When there's network-wide lag, it's caused by things unrelated to any specific servers

well theres still a staffing issue, some new mods would go on and staff these barely played realms instead of the larger ones, now im starting to notice a lack of survival and maybe even prison staff

Yeah honestly I agree tbh I'd keep KitPVP and Factions as those still get a few players but realms like Creative, Earth, and Anarchy barely get any. With what Shleep said, I'd merge Earth with Survival and Islands with Skyblock as they're basically the same thing then remove the ones that have died over time.

Asking for gamemodes to be removed can spark a lot of hate for the people that actually play on the gamemodes that are voted for the most.
I suggest to end this thread as Dacon has responded already that there is no issue with having the servers still run, and luckily he knows how people will feel if he does go along with it: anger, sadness, etc. I play on Creative now and then because it's my "home" — I played it the first time I joined and I would feel so upset to see my work and my friend's work suddenly deleted just so people with a bad connection request to have something happen that won't even affect their connection after all is done.

Thank you Dacon for being understanding, even if it might not be for crates and bundles, you still have the priority of what the player wants for these types of things. There is still good in the world and it's nice to see mana still has that

and yet, there are actual whole servers getting deleted because it's not worth keeping up anymore.

One of my favorite servers actually, which symbolized the same thing for me as the creative realm does for you now. It was first removed about a year ago, now whitelisted for staff to get a full revamp, which is the exact way I'd see those smaller realms getting figured out as well.

But I also see how staff is reacting to this, and how the small % of people who actually play on those realms think about it. So I think this is a hopeless case and not worth putting effort into from the players who want ManaCube to change for the better

To address this issue, all of these smaller realms still have quite the dedicated patron following. Those players still donate lots of money to not only their home realms but other realms as well. Lots of these players play multiple realms in the meantime between resets and in turn not only help their home realms stay supported in a large share but the larger realms you play on as well.

Certain realms have a smaller following and that is something that will always be a thing on any server. This is not just a Manacube specific issue. These realms are dynamic and do change. While some at times overlap and might share some features that make them similar it usually does not last long. Although you see it as a "waste" of resources lots of these realms feed into larger realms and help you in the long run. By helping to test new features, concepts, ect in real time. You are only seeing a small taste of what actually happens. I am always 100% on board to improve things and make things better. But simply declaring certain realms a waste and useless is hurtful to the players that spend thousands of dollars and hours playing and enjoying those realms. I'm just trying to keep a positive outlook and support all players that love it here. I not only still play my smaller realm and staff it but I support many other larger realms as well. Lots of us wear many hats here and support realms equally. Just remember most of us here are volunteers trying to help all of you the best we can. I do not see any of this discourse as a hopeless cause. I understand what all of your are saying. I just wanted a chance as a staff member and a player of one of those realms to show how important lots of these realms are for your benefit.

There is actually quite a few active players on Earth; I'd say maybe 20-30. That isn't a lot by any means but I think that's enough to justify keeping Earth.
