GB per Player Help

  1. how much GB do I need for around 300 players??
  2. If you expect 300 players on a server, expect a lot of plugins to come with it, unless it's custom coded. But including plugins I'd say 12-15GB

    Generally, I'd not recommend going above 200-250 players on a single Spigot instance, unless you know what you're doing, and have a decently optimised environment setup (IE; proper tools in place, not just blindly following guides). However, if you have all of that, as well as have a decently powerful Dedi with a nice CPU, I'd advise around 10GB, you'd very rarely need more than that anyway; plus, also, allocating a lot of RAM can also cause issues with the GC.
