How to Play Minecraft Multiplayer

Microsoft has kept its long-standing promise by adding in Minecraft support for a cross-platform game between Windows 10 users on PCs and mobile devices on iOS, Windows Phone and Android.

Now, within a single server, users of Minecraft: Pocket Edition and Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta can play together. Also, there is support for local multiplayer for five players. In this case, the “server” is one of the participants.

Also, in the mobile version of Minecraft improvements were made: new items were added and weather conditions were improved.

Find the game server. In order to connect to the multiplayer Minecraft game, you have to find the appropriate game server. Servers cannot be found from the Minecraft game itself – it’s done via a web browser. There are several sites on which lists of servers are laid out, and many popular servers have their own websites. Here are some sites on which you can find server lists:

1. MinecraftServers.org.

2. MinecraftForum.net Server section.

3. PlanetMinecraft.com Server section.

Find the IP address of the server. It looks like this: “mc.wubcraft.com” or “148.148.148.148”. Sometimes it also specifies a port, for example, like this: “:25565”.

Determine if this server is suitable for you. You need to choose a server by some parameters. Different servers can vary, but most of them have descriptions that you can read. Look at the following important points before choosing a server:

  • Type of game. Many servers offer to play in the standard Minecraft, but there are servers with all sorts of game modes, from “capture the flag” and ending with “role playing”.
  • Whitelist. If the server has a whitelist, only registered users can connect to it. This means that you need to create an account on the server’s site to connect to it.

How to play Minecraft with friends

The number of players is the number of users who are currently connected to the server, as well as the maximum number of players. Keep in mind that in fact, you cannot play with all these people. Servers divide large groups of players into smaller ones.

Player vs. Player (PvP). In this case, players can fight against each other. It will be difficult for you to play on such a server if you are new to this game.

The running time is the time that the server is available. If you plan to play a lot, find a server with a running time of at least 95%.

Copy the IP address of the server to connect to it. The IP address can be found in the list of servers. The IP address is a group of letters and/or digits separated by periods. Select the address and copy it to the clipboard.

Check the game version on the server. Very often, servers offer to play in the old version of Minecraft, because the server needs some time to update the game to the latest version. Remember/write down the version of Minecraft on the server you selected.

Before you start the game, run Minecraft Launcher. Note the version of Minecraft displayed in the lower right corner of the screen. If it is different from the version of the game offered on the server you selected, edit your profile so that you download the correct version.

Click Edit Profile (in the lower left corner).

In the drop-down menu, click “Use version” and select the version of the game offered on the server. Click Save Profile to save the changes.

Think about creating a new profile designed specifically for playing on the server. If you want to connect to several different servers that support different versions of the game, you can create separate profiles for each of these servers. This will greatly simplify the connection to the servers.

How to play Minecraft multiplayer

1. Launch Minecraft and click “Multiplayer”. The multiplayer menu opens.

2. Click Add Server. The “Edit server information” window will open.

3. Insert the IP address of the server in the “Server address” field. In the “Server name” field enter the server name (you can enter anything, but the actual server name will help you not get confused).

4. Click “Finish” to save the information about the server. The added server will be displayed in the list of games. If the server does not appear, verify that its address is correct.

5. Select the server and click “Connect to server”. Minecraft will try to connect to the server and download the game world. If you receive a message stating that the server supports a different version of the game, make sure that you have selected the correct version in the menu of your profile.

Start playing. Most servers will initially display a welcome screen. On it, you will find rules and instructions for using the server, as well as information on how to join other players.

When playing on a public server, do not destroy what is done by other players. This is considered a rude behavior and you will most likely be denied access to most public servers.

Observe server rules. You will enjoy the game if each user follows certain rules. The rules vary from server to server, so read the information on the screen with a greeting or on the server’s website.

Communicate with other players. To do this, press “T”. A chat window opens, where you can enter your messages. Remember that playing on public servers, you communicate with strangers, so do not give out personal information.

How to play multiplayer on Minecraft PE

On your device, start the web browser. You can play Minecraft PE with other people by connecting to Minecraft PE servers. To find these servers, use a mobile web browser. Such servers support different versions and game modes. On the following sites you will find lists of popular servers:

  • Minecraftpocket-servers.com;
  • MCPEstats.com;
  • MCPEhub.com/servers;
  • MCPEuniverse.com/pocketmine/.

Compare server settings. On most sites with server lists, you can find detailed information about each server, including game modes, number of players, server location and much more. Use this information to find a server that meets your needs.

Pay attention to the version of the game supported by the server. Minecraft Pocket Edition does not allow you to independently set the game version, so you can connect only to those servers that support the version of the game installed on your device. Most servers are updated to the latest version within 24 hours.

Pay attention to the server address and port number. The server address is a group of letters and/or numbers separated by periods. The port number is separated from the address by a colon (:).

1. Open the Minecraft PE application and click on “Play”. A list of your game worlds will open.

2. Click “Edit” (in the upper right corner).

3. Click External, and then click Add Server. This will allow you to enter information about the server.

4. Enter the server data. This should be done in certain lines. Then click Add Server to add it to the list.

5. Enter the server name (whatever you want) so you can easily identify the server.

6. Enter the IP address.

7. Enter the port number. The port number is located directly behind the server address after the colon (:).

8. Click on the added server to connect to it. Minecraft will try to connect to the server. Once connected, you will be taken to the welcome screen.

If you cannot connect, the reason for this may be several different factors. You cannot connect if the server is full, and you will not receive any message informing you about it. If the server is not available, you will not be able to connect. You also will not be able to connect if your user name has another player already connected to the server.

You can change the user name by opening the Minecraft PE main menu and clicking on “Settings”.

Log on to the server if necessary. Some servers will ask you to register before you can start playing. Follow the on-screen instructions to register your email address on the server. You will need to open a message sent from the server to your email address.

How to play multiplayer on Minecraft PC

1. Make sure that you are playing on a high definition television (HDTV). In order to split the screen, the TV resolution has to be at least 720p; also you need an HDMI cable.

2. Create a new game world or upload an existing one. Uncheck the box next to “Online Game”.

3. Click “Run” on the second controller. The connection window opens.

4. Select the profile of the second player. If not, create a new profile.

5. Repeat the process described in the case of other players. You can play with four players at the same time (but no more).

How to play Minecraft multiplayer survival

Connection to servers with the mod Survival Games

Register a Minecraft account. To connect to servers with the Survival Games mod, you need a licensed version of the game, bought in Mojang. Pirated versions, hacked accounts – this all does not help. Search the network for tips on how to buy the game.

Find the IP address of the Survival Games server. Without this, you will not be able to connect to the server. A list of all servers that support the Survival Games mod can be found on the Survival Games website.

The servers are listed by geographic location. Select the server closest to you.

Many servers can be full. You need one where there are less than 24 players.

Copy or write down the server address. American servers are called “us1.mcsg.in”, “us2.mcsg.in” and similarly. European sites are called “eu1.mcsg.in”, “eu2.mcsg.in” and so on.

Launch Minecraft. Log in and start the game by clicking the “Multiplayer” button, then selecting “Add Server”.

Enter the server information in the appropriate sections. In the Add Server menu, specify the name of the server (you can write anything here, just easy to remember). In the “Server Address” field, you need to insert the copied server address. When done, click the “Done” button to add the server to your list of servers.

Update your list of servers. There are all chances that the added server will be packed to capacity. Update the list of servers until you find somewhere free. Go to the server and start the game.

To start the game, you will have to wait until the end of the current round.

Survival

Take something from the chests as soon as possible. When the game starts, think about what kind of initial loot you need. Many players try to get loot from the Cornucopia chest at the beginning of the round. Decide if you are ready to take risks, battling the crowd for this loot. If not, grab something else and hide.

Do not immediately put on all that you get, otherwise, you will be killed and robbed immediately by other players. Save valuable items for important battles that will take place later.

If you decide to get the loot from the Cornucopia chest at the beginning of the round, then grab as much as you can and run as far as possible. Soon near the chest of Cornucopia will begin a real massacre – and do you have to come across the brutalized bloody players?

Look for the chests hidden on the map. In most of them, there are a lot of useful things. If you know where this or that chest is, run there. This will not only help you get hold of the right loot but also help to organize an ambush on other players.

Stock up with food. Food will not let you starve, and this will not reduce your stamina. Stock up with enough food not to starve and walk with low health.

Play in a team with other players. Despite the fact that “there is only one left”, you can stretch out longer if you nail the team. Relations in it can be, so to speak, symbiotic – mutually beneficial, increasing the chances of survival of all team members. And in combat, it will be easier together.

At a certain stage in the team will begin discord and civil strife. Do not yawn, always expect a blow in the back.

Quite often, invitations to join a team turn out to be traps. Be careful when you receive such an invitation.

Pick up the loot that fell from the dead enemies. When killing someone, be sure to take everything that was in his inventory – perhaps there is something very useful to you. Maybe you’ll even find elixirs that will allow you to live longer.

The sense is that you take the loot of a slain, and not someone else.

Take care of the craft. If you have a lot of materials, then you can create something more powerful and useful that will give you an advantage in the battle. Nevertheless, the craft is dangerous – you can be killed in the process.

Battle

Learn to move correctly. “Correctly”, in this case, means “strafe in a circle.” Otherwise, you will not survive the first fight.

Strafe in a circle means “move around in circles around your opponent, using the traffic keys sideways”. This will allow you to continue to beat your opponent, while he unsuccessfully tries to catch up with you.

To strafe, press the navigation keys left and right (A and D, if you did not change the settings), and move the mouse in the opposite direction. This will allow you to move around in a circle around the target.

Surprise your opponent. You will get a huge advantage if you attack unexpectedly. If you manage to sneak up unnoticed, then you will have the opportunity to inflict enough damage to the enemy before he even sees anything.

If you are attacking in close combat, then jump when attacking. A jump increases the chance to deal a critical strike, which deals more damage. In addition, getting into the jumping target is much more difficult.

Attack from a far distance. Bow and arrows will serve you faithfully, as they will allow you to kill, being safe, or at least to remove the approaching enemy a few points of health. You will even have the ability to kill players without giving out your location.

Remember that sometimes it is better to retreat. Sometimes you will not have an opportunity to win the battle. Maybe, you are surrounded by superior enemy forces. Maybe, the enemy is better armed and protected. Whatever it was, but you have only one way out – to retreat, and not just to retreat, but also to hide from the enemy.

Try to get the player chasing you to another player. The pursuer may be distracted by a new prey that will allow you to be saved.
