    Thank you for an explanation.

    Also does this mean creating a bunch of useless threads actually worked? :eek:

    Its nice it's being updated but it's no use, you're not going to gain players anymore, you're main fanbase was built of the old sg community now that, that died along with sg classic, and the hype regarding return of sg I see no increase.

    Player count isn't everything, at least for us. We care more about making a good, clean and fun experience over everything else.

    That being said, our overall (online) playerbase has been growing over the past few months. Granted this is over the summer period, but I think its proof that players new and old are still wanting to try The Hive: Java out, and it will be awesome when they can login to a brand new experience.

    The hive isn't just made up of sg players either- the games still have players because Hive makes it fun, you think the couple thousand people are all there to play sg classic? I've never even played it and I've been on Hive for years, I'm sure its the same for many others too :c

    Can't wait to see the new and improved Hive. Thank you for listening to the community feedback, and continuing to support Java Edition instead of giving up on it. We appreciate you guys ❤️

    Maybe with this new hive you can just get rid of SG 2.0 and keep SG Classic with the old Classic stats, maybe add some features from SG 2.0 into Classic that were actually useful and just fix minor issues with SG Classic, then maybe SG players would come back as well.

    nice, great to hear an update at least. of course I feel the lack of new stuff or updates has been problematic, but also just the lack of communication, so i'm glad to hear an update on what's going on behind the scene.
