Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of Minecraft survival servers. There are many versions of Minecraft survival servers to choose from, not just basic survival mode.

This list has good vanilla (no mods) survival servers, faction survival servers, PvP survival servers, PvE survival servers, and overall popular survival-capable servers. Some of these servers get many more players than others. Generic vanilla survival servers actually tend to have very few users, servers with 50+ players can be difficult to find.

Multi-purpose Minecraft servers tend to get the most players, with some reaching up into the 1000's even. While numbers are nice, they're not for everyone. Minecraft survival servers with too many people can be awful for people who just want to find a secret location to build with friends.

This is a Minecraft survival server that players almost expect when first looking up survival servers. This server has a neat starting area with one parkour section, a teleporter to get players out to a random far away location, a store, and more.

Once out and about, away from the starting area, players can start picking up blocks and creating houses. Be careful, on this Minecraft survival server players are allowed to grief and destroy any building other players have made. It might not be okay to harass just one player, but in general PvP destruction is allowed on this Minecraft survival server.

Other than that it's a great generic Minecraft server for survival. To not get griefed, try building a house underwater, in the sky, or at least use a secret entrance. Get thousands of blocks away from the server spawn, hide the base, and get started building.

The teleport takes players out a few thousand blocks, it seems kind of random. Be sure to swim to top and bottom of the teleporter if it doesn't work. It's possible to float to the bottom of the teleporter and not go anywhere. If this happens swim back up to the very top.
