Minecraft server problems

When Minecraft server problems strike they can come with a range of error codes and messages, which in most part depend on the platform you are playing this block building game on. The PS3, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 consoles have their own status messages when servers run into issues.


Mobile platforms have a dedicated Minecraft Pocket Edition app with Windows Phone, Android, and iOS being most popular. The Minecraft PE game will hit server problems on occasion, also these can arrive during maintenance or by surprise.

Common issues include no games being found and not able to get online with both console and mobile devices. If the Minecraft servers are down today, then status updates should arrive every few minutes below. Leave your feedback, especially if you have issues and detail the platform, as well as the part of the world you are from.

We also welcome reports about glitches with the game on any platform, which mostly happens after DLC and updates release.

    Does the Block Launcher Mod Installer for Minecraft 1.8 allow you to NOT run out of ammo?

    All servers are down, there is no way to join them until they’re up again unless you’re a server owner which then you can communicate through the “error” messages.
