SMP Minecraft

Introduction


When it comes to the many ways that Minecraft can be played, it goes without saying that multiplayer has some of the largest arrays of options at your disposal. This is especially the case today with the rise of SMP. For those that don’t know SMP stands for Survival Multiplayer and in this article, we shall go over what exactly that means, why it’s become so popular and why it’s so relevant with Minecraft in general.


What is SMP


As the name implies, this is a category of gaming in Minecraft’s multiplayer that hinges and focuses on the survival aspects of the game, but it takes the format of single-player survival and enhances it with more players online. This idea has multiple sub-categories that are under the umbrella of this idea that is made popular by Minecraft Youtuber Dream.


What is SMP


Let’s go over a few of these subcategories to truly understand the different ways you can play SMP.


Vanilla


Vanilla is exactly as it sounds, as it brings forth the most basic form of survival Minecraft and just shifts it into a multiplayer direction. A nice and safe mode for those who like the simplicity of such an idea.


Vanilla


If you like having players who are in the for the long haul and don’t care for or need modding, then this is the game mode for you.


Factions


This is a mostly PvP style of survival multiplayer on Minecraft where players will separate into groups and claim large swathes of land, which said groups will often compete over.


Factions


If you like teamwork and nation whilst managing resources, this should be right up your wheelhouse.


Anarchy


There are no limitations as to what you can do when it comes to the Anarchy version of SMP. Mods, lack of rules, cheats, you name it and it has it.


Anarchy


There is absolutely little to no structure when it comes to what you can pull off in this game mode, and people will take advantage of that with a great amount of fervor and gusto.


Skyblock


This game is all about being on a small sky island quite high and the sky and scrounging up what little resources you can with your friends to survive your unfortunate circumstances.


Skyblock


This is for the true survivalist, and for those that like to work with few items or literal ground at your disposal.


Conclusion


All in all, this SMP is something that is rising in popularity and for good reason. The options that you have at your disposal make it a category where almost anyone can have fun with it due to the many ways that you can play. Take advantage of such variety and play a game mode where you can enjoy yourself!
