I love my new Minecraft Bedrock dedicated server! I prefer this over realms any day! I dont have to invite friends. Just send the IP and connect! I wish there was more Bedrock plugin support, but that doesnt fall on Shockbyte at all. My dedicated server is never down and always has the latest updates, so ☆☆☆☆☆ to you! Thanks again!
Well... I can sum this up in a few words; Shockbyte is fucking horrible.
Let's start with me ordering, it was quick-ish. Took 15 minutes to process, I was okay with that. I go to check the server out, I like it. I order more RAM, upload my plugins it's running smooth. Timings with 5 players online had the CPU at 2%, and the RAM was only at 30-50% usage.
I check the console to check for any errors, spammed with the error that my server does not support Java 8. This is where I start getting pissed off. I contact their support, they responded quickly, said it would take a few minutes and asked which of my servers I'd like to make Java 8 when I stated that I wanted all my servers switched to Java 8 in the original ticket statement.
I am annoyed at the stupidity, but that isn't what'll really piss me off. It took ONE WEEK & 3 tickets to transfer me to another node, which took them 20 MINUTES TO DO! I was pissed, just beyond fumming. I calmed down and decided to just write this off a one-time error.
3 weeks later... I had 4 servers running under their services. I upgraded the RAM on all of them, then their AMAZING billing serviced fucked up. It had already created invoices for the current month, and I had to pay, I was happy to prepay for a month & upgrade(I had the money to). At the due date for the invoices that I ALREADY PAID for, I was charged again.
I contacted support again... They owed me over $30. It took 3 days for a reply to ask for the already provided transaction IDs. I asked for a refund, it took them TWO weeks and 4 support tickets to get it. Except, instead of getting a refund they give credit on their services.
I was like, fuck it, this is the last straw. This month, so far, I've gotten $500 in donations so I thought to buy a dedicated/VPS server. I'm currently waiting for the Kimsufi KS-4B. Anyways, back to the topic, my server crashed. It was a MySQL connection issue.
LiteBans & the MySQL server caused an internal DoS attack. I had 30 players online... it was difficult to get and keep those players. They were active, chatty, nice, and I had no punishments to dish out. Then I ban someone and it the server lagged out.
The console went offline and I was about to pass out from rage. It took 30 minutes to get it back online. At first I thought it was caused by LiteBans and not the MySQL server. Only 12 players ever came back.
It happened AGAIN! This time I had 25 players online and lost all but 14 of them. My community grew really fast and my players got sick of getting disconnected from a server, so they left. This happened today... I connect to the MySQL manually, takes 60 seconds+ to go page to page. It took literally 10 minutes to delete 3 tables, and another 5 minutes to download a copy to transfer.
If you're going to use ShockByte, don't use their MySQL or you'll get boned.
My timings with ShockByte:
