Minecraft server issues

It can happen to you when the online game Minecraft freezes on you, the screen turns black or you get a total outage. The popular textured cubes game where you build constructions has taken the world by storm, but the 3-dimensional world does encounter problems.


Gamers have said in the past that their Minecraft connection timed out, streaming frame was a nightmare and that they had login problems. What we have noticed is, Minecraft ‘is not responding’ or ‘connection refused’ are two of the main things people search for when things are going wrong, then they look for answers or a way of venting their anger for others to read what they are thinking.

If you have suffered a Minecraft service outage or any other problem, please do share them with ‘Is Down Right Now’ as this will help others understand if they are having the same issue.
