So I just loaded up Minecraft (it had an update for every version it seems) and have noticed that a lot of the servers on the blacklist seem unreachable. These are the servers I have tested: TheArchon offline GotPvP offline PhanaticMC oflline Also the player bases on these servers are unusually low right now if you check out player counts on .org. Then I looked at PrimeMC who have disabled their web store and they are online. Also, DesiredCraft are online and are using a .xyz domain but if I am correct this is a new switch? So after looking at all of this I came up with one solution, Blacklisting is happening.
