Greetings Slap Gamers!

For over a year now, the Slap Gaming server has been running on a pretty decent physical server, with some quite impressive specs.

However, over time, our demands for performance have increased.
We've gone from a small server, with 1 single survival world, to a server with 6 Different Survival Worlds, A Creative World, A Minigames World, A "Hub" World, and 2 hidden worlds for project work.
Combine that with the host of very advanced and technical plugins such as our very own StouxGames, ArenaPvP and SlapHomeBrew and the server gets put under a bit of pressure!

So we decided just before Christmas that we would upgrade to a new high performance server, and for the past month have been preparing to migrate to that server!


Today, we carried out the migration to this new server and it is now running live for you to all enjoy!
A huge thanks to Stoux2 and Hungryhomer for all their hard work in setting up the server and performing the migration!

Hopefully you will notice a considerable performance increase and smoother game play!


*NEW* Slap Gaming Minecraft Server Specs
> CPU: Intel® Xeon® E3-1270 v3 Quadcore Haswell incl. Hyper-Threading Technology
> RAM: 32 GB ECC RAM
> HDD: 2 x 2 TB SATA 6 Gb/s 7200 rpm
> Connection: 1 Gbit/s-Port




To Clarify: It is the physical server that has changed - all of your content in-game will remain exactly the same!

** IF YOU TRY TO CONNECT TO THE SERVER AND GET TAKEN TO THE OLD SERVER - PLEASE TRY CONNECTING TO: NEW.SLAPGAMING.COM **
This is because your internet providers DNS server has not updated yet!
