VPN Usage
A VPN is an add-on client that you download in order to ‘scatter’ your IP. It allows players who may have connection issues (due to IP syncing, WIFI routers or blocked areas) to be able to join the server and play without the limitations that they once faced. We use VPN-blocker to stop evading, so if you have an issue with connection please make a ticket in our public discord!
