Minecraft Servers By Types

On this page you can find all the different game types that are currently available on the server list.


Will you hunt, or be hunted? With players divided into two teams, the hunters try to find and kill the hiders before the time limit is up!

Blockhunt Servers

Invade the enemy teams' base, take their flag, and bring it back to your base! With 13 classes and over 30 maps to choose from, this team based gamemode turns any Minecraft Server into a strategy based PVP warzone!

Capture The Flag Servers

Prison escape, Minecraft style! One cop vs an entire jail full of robbers.

Cops And Robbers Servers

Creative mode is one of the three game modes in Minecraft: Survival, Adventure & Creative.
The primary objective for the user is to build anything they can imagine.
Combat functionality is largely disabled so the game mechanics that normally disturb the player during their play session are no longer occuring here.
This allows you to focus on whatever you're building, it however also takes away the thrill.
Because who doesn't like their hard work being blown up by a creeper? ;)

Creative Servers

Introduces a virtual economy to a Minecraft Server. Use custom currencies, buy/sell from player owned shops, and own land!

Economy Servers

Factions is a very popular Minecraft minigame where the primary objective is to capture land and then build out your own base to protect yourself.
To protect your bases servers are often equiped with griefing protection plugins, but make sure to check before you lose your hard work.
If they don't list it on their server page, simply ask the operators ingame.
The Minigame is essentially small scale warfare within Minecraft, you can gain control over vasts amount of land and financial resources(coins) and you can make friends and enemies!

Factions Servers

In these servers you can play with guns. Think of various pistols, rifles, etc.
It is required that you install a Resource Pack from the server to be able to see these items though!
Usually this process is completely automated and all you will need to do is login.

Guns Servers

Hunger Games is often refered to as Survival Games too. They are slightly different though.
In Hunger Games your primary objective it to be the last man standing. This will likely involve PVP'ing as your opponents aren't likely to drop dead by themselves. Prior to starting a Hunger Games match the players are situated around chests while the countdown occurs.

Once it hits 0 the players all rush towards the chests to claim whatever valuables there are inside there. It's immensely valuable if you can obtain some weapons and equipment at this point as of course the main point of the minigame is surviving.
After the users have been to the chests they usually start attacking each other right away, and some may choose to try and hide as far as they can while they gather more resources.

Hunger Games Servers

The Lobbies have portals to each sub-server and signs to join Minigames. There are high mountains surrounding the spawn and there is a World Border around the spawn to prevent escaping. The Lobbies have jump pads that make travelling faster. Players get Speed III, Jump Boost III and Night Vision II potion effects to speed it up even more and to make the Lobby brighter. Players receive a Server Selector, Lobby Selector, Stats Book, Cosmetics Chest and Donator Emerald which gives you information about the Donator ranks. There used to be a bone with which you could choose mounts. The positions of the items in the player hotbar have varied a lot. When players teleport to a Minigame, they can see a Merchant in the middle and on the right and left sides their own statistics.

Lobby Servers

Popular mod which includes three different types of minigame - gliding mode, tumble mode, and battle mode.

Minigames Servers

Parkour is one of the oldest and most known games in Minecraft. You've likely done a parkour lap in real life too! In Minecraft the goal is to jump from block to block without falling down. Server Operators have become extremely creative and built beautiful parkours for you to enjoy. There are different types of parkours, such as Ice Parkour, Ladder Parkour, Fire parkour andsoforth.

Parkour Servers

Prison Servers usually take place in an isolated space where the players are in "Prison". This does not neccesarily have to be a closed door prison, there are open mines for example. In a Prison Server the objective is to mine/collect ores and then sell those to a shopkeeper mob to obtain money. The more money the player obtains, the higher they will rise in the Prison ranks. As you progress the levels start gaining slower and slower. When you get better you usually progress into different maps/levels within the prison and eventually you will be able to obtain freedom. This is usually the end of the fun on that server though, so servers tend to make this process very slow!

Prison Servers

Work together with other players to build, fight monsters, and quest! Most PVE servers focus on teamwork as opposed to PVP.

Pve Servers

PVP is short for Player Versus Player. Anything to do with PVP means combat related activities between two players in multiplayer mode.
Each player equips themselves the best they can, using various armour and weapons to try and inflict as much damage on their opponent as possible.
This is a rather broad category, usually for a more refined search we recommened using one of the minigame sections such as the Skywars one.

Pvp Servers

Quakecraft is a free-for-all, first person shooter game. The first player to get 25 kills wins. The only weapon you have is a hoe, known as a railgun. You can shoot one fast-moving beam at a time with an upgradable cooldown. To confirm you hit your target, a firework will shoot off and a death sound will play (depending on your selection in the shop). Different maps have different numbers of players ranging from 7-12 depending on the size of the map.

Quakecraft Servers

In Roleplay Servers the objective is totally different than in other Minecraft Servers, roleplay servers are typically the ones where you play for a long time.
Your character levels up, there is a system of progression, there are plugins in place to protect your assets such as your buildings.
Usually the communities on these are very friendly too. The downside of these servers is that they are usually pretty small.

Roleplay Servers

Skyblock is a minigame that can be played with a very small amount of players.
The concept is simple, you are placed on a small island (3 blocks in each direction) with limited resources.
Now your objective is to make use of the available resources as best as you can to eat, build & survive.
Be warned though, at night things get really dangerous!

Skyblock Servers

Skywars is a pvp based game that is usually played in larger teams. The different teams will all be deployed in different islands to start.
Each Island will have a couple chests and some resources on it to get the players going.
The players then try to visit each other and start building towards each other to cross the gap between the islands.
The team that remains alive the longest wins.
In the central point there is usually an island with loot too, with more valuable items than on the spawn point, therefore timing is key to get there as soon as possible!

Skywars Servers

Minigame for Minecraft Servers where the last player standing wins! Stay alive while players mine the ground from beneath each other.

Spleef Servers

When playing Survival Mode players are challenged to the ultimatum, they have to to collect food to keep their hunger under control. Construct the greatest buildings to survive and fend off all the aggressive mobs that may cross their path.
It is important to note that while in Creative mode for example you obtain things for free, this is absolutely not the case in Survival mode.
You have to collect everything yourself, craft everything yourself and fight for everything yourself.
Survival is definitely not for the faint hearted.

Survival Servers

TNT is an explosive block that can be placed and be activated by Flint and Steel, a Redstone current, spreading Fire or Lava, a flaming Arrow, a nearby explosion (such as from more TNT or a creeper), or by a Dispenser.

Tnt Servers

In these servers the goal is to play with man-made maps (created by players). Gameplay is somewhat limited compared to regular Minecraft. Users are unable to destroy or place blocks with any tools, this limitation is put in place to preserve the maps the users built. Interaction is only possible with computer controlled mobs, paintings and item cases.

Adventure Servers

McMMO is a plugin that allows players to earn experience and rewards for using certain tools and doing certain actions. For example, players would earn experience from using a shovel, or a bow, or taming mobs. Buildup of experience from these activities will result in double or rare drops, and ability enhancement.

Towny Servers

Tnt Run Servers

The difference between Cracked Servers and Normal Servers is that the Cracked ones do not speak to Mojang's login system to authenticate.
This also means that your session is not connected to your "Minecraft" account, everyone can choose any name because no one is verifying wether the account actually exists.
Consequentially this also results into players who haven't actually bought the game being able to play regardless, because in Minecraft the Login system also serves as a license verification system.

The Cracked server owners solve this problem by doing in game authentication, so you will have to register ingame for a password. Offline mode servers is another name for Cracked servers, it's a common misconception that these type of servers are illegal. In fact the opposite is true, Mojang purposely introduced this option into the server incase their servers had login problems.

Cracked Servers

Pixelmon is a game type that requires you to use a Modded game client.
