  1. Hello! I have a server hosted on version 1.16.5, the problem is that it cannot support more than 30 players. We currently have 16 GB of RAM. I don't understand, does anyone know what equipment I need to accommodate 200 or 300 people?
     
  2. What hardware is your server running on at the moment and what type of hosting is it (shared Minecraft, VPS, dedicated etc)?

    Can you also share timings reports?
     
  3. It is a dedicated server
     
  4. What type of hardware does your machine operate?
    Have you completed a timings report and looked at the root causes of potentially performance loss?
