If you want to play Minecraft as it was intended to be played, you've come to the right place.

Most Minecraft servers don't really let you play Minecraft. Minigames, Factions, kit PvP, and economy servers all advertise exciting gameplay. These servers can be fun, but by piling on new features and changing how the game works, they take some of the magic out of Minecraft and end up providing an experience that in many cases has already been done better by other popular games. It can be hard to find a server that doesn't suffer from this in some way; even servers that promise vanilla gameplay are often plagued by cheaters, unresponsive/abusive staff, lag, or crashing, and often have gameplay-changing plugins, restrictive rules, or unnecessary features that don't improve the experience. VanillaEvolved does things differently.

Greetings MegaNarwhal_,

I'm new on the vanillaevolved server but I already like it a lot!

There's just one thing that bothers me; when I sleep in a bed, it doesn't set my spawn.
So I awlways end up at the spawn of the world when I die.
Maybe this has nothing to do with the server but incase it does, I'd like it to get fixed.
Thanks in advance.
