    The last time I reviewed PacketEvents, it was a bit buggy and inefficient. However, taking a look at 1.6.7 vs 1.2 (or something like that), the API has become my favorite packet api out there. It has so many new features like dynamic wrapper creation (being able to read packets directly and create wrappers while using them), protocollib support (it literally uses protocollib if its present to maintain support with other plugins that use protocollib, which is very good ;D), event system and more. It is also extremely fast and optimized and I myself have even ran extensive stress tests against it and it still ran great.

      Thanks a lot for using the API, really appreciate it.
      Will be looking on 1.16.3 support once Spigot releases 1.16.3.

      Thanks a lot, use 1.6.5, 1.6.5 should be able to perform well on servers with hundreds of players without any problem.
