You know what I hate? OVERDONE SERVERS! There's too many servers of the same kind! I've had enough of it, and I love ranting, so here is my rant on OVERDONE SERVERS!

I hate it when I search "Towny PvE," and all I get is "FACTIONS PVP MCBANS GREFFING RAID MINEZ ZOMBIES SECUROM KAIZO DORA THE EXPLORER STARFORCE PLOTMII SAFEDISC TERARIA ROBLOX HUNGER GAMES TURBO 3D EDITION | JOIN NOW!" I'm SICK OF IT! I just want to play on one of my favorite server types, and I find one, then they turn into PvP and add Factions the next day. True story. Also, I hate how the titles aren't titles, but rather listing the type of server, and the overblown amount of PLUGINS on the server. They also usually have bad moderators, owners, and buildings.

An example is PlotMe Creative Servers. PlotMe is a Creative Plugin that gives people certain plots to build on. These servers are all the same thing. You build on a small plot of land, and you can check out others' builds. Why don't people make creative servers that are.........CREATIVE? Granted, PlotMe isn't the most spammed, and I've found a few with a lot of good builds, and it's not overdone to the point that it's boring, but still, it's over-used to a degree.

Next, Pixelmon servers. These are servers that use Pixelmon. There are too many of them. What is my problem with them? It is the fact that Pixelmon isn't ready for servers yet. It's too un-polished. It lags the server. On top of that, there are plenty of mods that would work better on a server (still waiting for multi-mod server, Mine Little Brony server, and Portal Gun server.) If I wanted to play Pokemon, I'd play FireRed on an emulator, or pop X in my 3DS.

Also, Hunger Games servers. As much joy as they used to bring me (Before there was too many,) they are, again, ALL THE SAME THING! You kill people, and search for supplies, and go to the arena in the end. Often times, they even copy the map from another Hunger Games server, or even Survival Maps online! and Skyblock Hunger Games...*shudders* Some of them have classes, but even those don't really feel like new servers. Overall, Hunger Games servers are overdone, overrated, and DOWN RIGHT UNORIGINAL.

Then, there's MCMMO servers. I never liked these servers, especially the PvP ones. You level up, and that's it. These servers are boring because they have nothing to do, because most of them have a custom map with too many buildings to have interesting terrain. In the case of PvP MCMMO, half the time, someone suffocates you and they can because they built up their acrobatics skill. If they don't do that, they will kill you with their level 9,000 archery skills.

I'm also sick of every PvP server being grief and raid-enabled. Although PvE is my favorite, I play on PvP sometimes. But not anymore, 'cause griefing and raiding annoy me, but there's no non-grief non-raid PvP servers around. I don't like being griefed or raided because getting stuff takes a long time to get. I want a PvP server that you gain items from others the honorable way: through head-to-head combat.

But the worst, most overdone servers are.........FACTION SERVERS! I go on PMC Server Page, and all I see is FACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONS FRACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONS FRICTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONS FLICKTIONS FACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONSFACTIONS SHOOTERS SHOOTERS SHOOTERSFACTIONS FACTIONS FACTIONS.....*Takes Breath* AND MORE BUCKING' FACTIONS! They all have at least one overpowered faction full of VIPs, and are no fun when said faction has members on. That means: I can't go on the server until 1:00 AM, because that's the only way to avoid overpowered factions. Also, a lot of servers mix Towny and Factions, and it just doesn't work.

In the end, just come up with creative server ideas, and don't use over-used plugins, unless you have something new to add.

Bucking xD. It's true though. And then, someone makes a server that is original and no one joins.

Yeah, I remember that a server turned from Faction PVP into Towny PVE due to this blog's popularity, and it shut down a month later.

Hah "I find one, then they turn into PvP and add Factions the next day" My server is doing the exact opposite going from factions to towny :P

You know what sucks?! When you type in vanilla minecraft servers (so servers without plugins) and all of the servers say "no plugins, join now, 100% vanilla!". But when you join them they all have a million plugins and factions
