How to Switch Lobbies in Mineplex?
Mineplex is a minigame server for Minecraft which has an official partnership with the developer of the game, Mojang Studios. Even though the server has lost its fame. But many players remain loyal to it. At its peak, the server used to have around 20,000 players almost any time of the day.
And with 34,434 players in 2015, Mineplex made the Guinness World Record for having the most players in any Minecraft server at a time. The record was broken again by Hypixel the same year. And the popularity started decreasing simultaneously as more and more servers were competing.
Right now, you will hardly find any playable multiplayer game with sufficient players. In 2019, the European server was dead. And players were redirected to the Mineplex US servers.
As of today, around 500 or more players are available in the Mineplex server of the Minecraft Java Edition. And for the Bedrock Edition, you will get about 5000+ players. As there are not a lot of servers and popular game modes for the Bedrock edition comparatively, you still might find some active lobbies.
What is the lobby, lobby menu, or lobby selector?
A lobby can be explained as a place where you get spawned when you join any server. There might or might not be other real-time players with you in that lobby. If you are alone in any lobby, the server might not have a lot of players active. So you can switch lobbies from there.
There are 5 lobbies and 1 staff lobby in Minecraft central. Also, for minigames, you will see 3 different lobbies.
In the main lobby, you will see NPCs and portals that will help you to see the sub-servers and take you to the minigames. And you can not escape the main lobby because of the mountains and World Borders. However, you can use the jump pads to travel faster. And if you are a donator, you will be able to fly.
When it comes to the minigame lobby, these are the lobbies that serve all the purposes that are related to the minigames. These lobbies were first introduced in 2021 along with the concept of the minigame itself. As we have mentioned before, there are three minigame lobbies there.
Now, if you are going to play with your friends on Mineplex servers, you might face a common problem. Sometimes, you and your friends will not be in the same lobby while you wait for the game to start. And mostly that is not what people want.
What you can do in such a situation is to switch to your friend’s lobby. If you are on Mineplex on the Java edition of the game, then just right-click the clock from the inventory. From there, choose the same lobby number to be in the same lobby.
But if you are on the Bedrock edition, you will have to manually type a command which is ‘/server lobby-(lobby number)’. For example: /server lobby-10
This command will work on the Java edition as well. Once you type this command, you will be teleported to that lobby immediately.
Other options to switch lobbies
Apart from that, there are other ways to switch lobbies. For instance, you can send messages to other players on the server and see if they let you join in their world or not. If you are on a server, just send a message saying ‘/can I teleport to anyone?’ And you should find people interested in it.
If that player responds to your message positively, you can click and teleport to their world. To buy stuff from other people (if they have any shop including that product), this method can help you.
How to switch to a survival server?
Sometimes, you might want to teleport to some other lobby in some specific game mode. For example, if you want to teleport to a specific survival game server on Mineplex, then you can not do it manually by typing the command ‘/server SG-16’.
Whatever the version you are on, these kinds of commands will not work. To switch to a specific game mode, you will have to look for a player who is on that server. And then you will have to teleport to that player to be on the survival server.
How many lobbies does Mineplex have?
In Mineplex, there are around 110 lobbies and each of them can allow up to 80 players. But you will see only the first 54 of the lobbies. Because the game will not allow menus of more than 54 spaces. To be on the rest of the lobbies, you have to teleport manually through commands.
How do you get back to a lobby on Mineplex?
To get back to a lobby, you have to either find that lobby from the inventory or teleport to that lobby by typing a command manually. In the Java edition of the game, right-click on the clock from the inventory, and from there choose the lobby and get teleported to it.
But in the bedrock edition of the game, you will not have such advantages. You will have to type a command, for example ‘/server lobby-15’ to teleport to lobby 15. You can use this method in the Java edition as well.
How do you teleport in Mineplex?
To teleport to a different world, you will have to depend on other players. And that player must accept your teleportation request. For that purpose, you can either rely on your friends or ask in the server chat for permission. With the /friend command, you can see the list of your friends and teleport from there.
And if you want to teleport to some other lobby, just teleport through the /server lobby(number) command on both Bedrock and Java edition. And in the Java edition, click on the clock from the inventory and choose the server from there.
How do you play Mineplex with friends?
You will have to be on the same server, the same version of the game, and in the same lobby with your friends. If all these are okay, then enter a game. You will be in the same lobby in the first place if you are lucky. But if you are not, then you will be in a different lobby and you will have to teleport to your friend’s lobby manually.
