The-Wild Survival 1.16 Minecraft server

Almost-vanilla 1.16 Minecraft survival server, with Grief Prevention to protect your builds and avoid griefing. PvP is enabled. Small, friendly, long-term community - some players have been here for 8+ years, but we welcome new players.

Long-term stable server - up since 2012, and we don't do map resets. Map is huge, no world border, several sub-spawns to spread out, and all-new superb world spawn in new 1.16 generated chunks with Nether portal for all the Nether Update goodness - Basalt Deltas, Crimson Forests, Soulsand Valleys, Warped Forests, ruined bastions with piglins, hoglins, striders, respawn anchors etc.

Come play now - server hostname the-wild.tk port 25565

We have a small, friendly community, and a helpful team of long-term staff. If survival Minecraft in a friendly community is what you're looking for, then come give us a try, we'd be happy to welcome you!

What do we mean by "almost vanilla"? We want the game experience to be as close to playing vanilla Minecraft as possible, so we don't just install every plugin we can find like some servers. We do use some cheat prevention tools, and use Grief Prevention which allows you to "claim" areas of land, preventing other players from building/breaking blocks there (unless you give them trust to do so). We have a Dynmap-powered live world map. We also use some custom code to protect new players from PvP while they get settled in, and automatically protect players from PvP after a certain number of deaths to avoid the frustration of being killed over and over - although you can opt-out of that if you're a willing participant. Some players are keen PvPers, and some are builders who never PvP, so whichever your play style, you'll fit right in.
