The VGCritic Minecraft Server is Coming Soon!

Hey guys, Rolo here! I am here to tell you all about some very exciting news. As of right now, we are currently creating an official VGCritic Minecraft Server! In this short article, we will tell you what you can expect to see on the server when we open it up to the public for all to enjoy. We will also post screenshots at the bottom of this page to give you a closer look. The server will be running on 1.8+. Keep in mind this project will take a bit of time, so expect to hear more info about opening day around November or December.

A  Basic Layout

Our main goal is to make the server fun for all ages by having a bit of everything. The server will mostly have mini-games, from Classic Minecraft Games, to Original VGCritic Favorites! The server will also have a bit of extras, such as creative plots, a donation center, contest entries, and so much more! Keep updated with VGCritic to hear more!


We have all sorts of mini-games for our fans to choose from. Here is a quick list of just a few mini-games that will be on the server:

TNTRun: This is one of the classic minecraft mini-games. All player start on the same level of the arena. If the players don’t want to fall, they must constantly run as the block behind them disappear. The last minecrafter standing wins.

Blockhunt: This is another great minecraft classic. Blockhunt is a ‘hide and seek’ type of game. There is a hunting team and a hiding team. The hiding team must seek, or slay, the hiding team. If a hider is found, they move to the hunting team. The last team standing wins.

Build-My-Thing: This is an original minecraft game. Think of this game as a 3d pictionary. Each player has to build the word they are given. At the end of the game round, the player with the most points wins.

Mario-Kart: This is probably going to be one of the funnest games on the server. This remake of the mario kart franchise is guaranteed to be a fan favorite. Players will race on a course and try to finish in first. However, there will be items to make the race a lot more diffficulty. The person who finishes in first wins.


The ‘extras’ area will have more stuff available to all fans. Here is a short list of what you can expect in the ‘extras’ area:

Creative Plots: This area will be for all fans to express their creativity on their very own plot. Build by yourself, or with friends!

Donation Center: If you have experience with owning, or running a server, then you probably know that hosting costs a bit of money. If you would like to donate, you will be able to buy one of our VIP Packages. VIP members will have special perks above regular members. VIP members will also be able to have access to special game maps. Keep in mind, these perks will not altar gameplay.

Contests: Contests will be another fun way to interact with others as well as competing for prizes. There really isnt much to say about contests for now, so be sure to check on VGCritic for more info.
