Released in 2009, Minecraft has stood the test of time and has proven itself an excellent source of entertainment for millions of gamers worldwide.

A common trait between games that accomplish this sort of longevity is that they allow gamers’ creativity to run wild, which often keeps the gameplay fresh. Each Minecraft server gets shaped by its owner’s will, and Dream survival multiplayer (SMP) server is one of the more unique ones out there.

Created by Dream Team, a group involving three Minecraft YouTubers, the server is home to many more content creators. The server’s hectic lineup turns it into an excellent source of content when different personalities clash under a set of exciting rules and endless possibilities for new scenarios.

The server has been up since May 2020, and a lot happened since then. There were multiple wars, festivals, and rebellions. If you’re a newcomer to the scene, keeping track of what may have happened before in the server may be quite challenging.
