It is a sad day for any OG Minecraft player. Mineplex, one of the most popular servers is now shutting down after running for 10 years. The server was created in 2013 by Gregory Bylos and Spujel, and has served as a meeting point among many players.

Mineplex's shut down had been announced on their Discord server, stating that they regret having to close the server and that they wish things had been different.

It was one of the top servers for Minecraft and also one of the few official partners of Mojang. In its peak, Mineplex had millions of active players and even set a Guinness World Record in 2015.

We all associate this server with very nostalgic memories, be it the countless rounds of Masterbuilder or the servers' classic Skywars. Believe it or not, this was a place where lifelong friendships were formed. With all that... Mineplex will always be treasured in our memories.
