    This plugin just doesn't work at ALL. People from 1.8.9 can't even join, and people for 1.16 gets KICKED all the time (EVEN with native transport set to false). Just got for another plugin, no support or anything. Just bad plugin.
    Here is an example:
    User protocolsupport.protocol.utils.authlib.LoginProfile(name: cnl_sequence, originalName: cnl_sequence, uuid: null, originalUUID: null, onlinemode: true) (/ has disconnected, reason: Kicked

    I love the fact that this plugin just works all by itself. When using ViaVersion, ViaBackwards, and ViaRewind - plus a patch for ladder hitboxes and potions, thats 5 potions I need for 1.7-1.16 support... which sucks. ProtocolSupport however is just ONE plugin that works with 1.4.7-1.16. Unlike ViaVersion things like scoreboards don't cut off, and nametags that are colorized don't crash older clients for being out of bounds thanks to the hardwork that was put into this plugin to make sure it worked perfectly. Thank you very much! Excellent plugin.

    This resource deserves a four star, but not quite a five, due to a variety of reasons.

    The developer maintains the resources; however, there are many inconsistencies with some basic cosmetic utilities. An example of this can be particles not displaying on arrows, which have been fully, “charged.”

    I’ve been made aware that some users don’t report these issues, and some do, though the developer has been represented that he/she doesn’t have the interest in repairing some of these issues.

    A note to users creating large networks:
    If you want sufficiency and stability, then ViaVersion is the way to go.

    If you’re creating a 1.7+ server, don’t consider using this, just because it has 1.4-1.6 support; nearly no one uses these client versions anymore.

    Thank you for creating a resource that was very sufficient in the past, and hope to see major updates arise from this resource someday. Until then, I feel best, sticking with ViaVersion.

    ProtocolSupport is just no longer as good as it was before. I've tried it on 1.15 and 1.16 servers, and it's just unreliable, laggy, and stuff... When I switch worlds, or load new chunks, whole servers lags - on i9 9900K dedicated. That's just unacceptable. In comparison, I've installed viaversion, viarewind, viabackwards, and had faster server load and no lag at all.

    Now, I understand those are beta builds, but you're calling everything from 1.12.2+ as "beta". There were no stable releases for three years.

    I do truly recommend everyone to use viaversion + viarewind + viabackwards instead. Believe me or not, those three plugins will load faster than ProtocolSupport and will have about 5x less impact on your server performance. If you're having a open-world server (such as factions, survival, kingdoms, creative), you should stay far away from it, unless you're using it on 1.12.2, which was actually the last stable, and the last great and reliable release. For everything up, it's truly unacceptable.
