Since we all know, Mineplex is compatible with versions 1.8.9-1.17. So why is it that, inspite of being compatible with the newer versions, Mineplex is the buggiest on those versions? In fact, Mineplex is even stated as a 1.17 server in some websites. So people think they can play with 1.17 on Mineplex with no problem, and when they have a terrible experience, they think that this is how the server is. Thus they move on with other servers, forgetting about Mineplex. In my opinion, I feel the devs are simply updating to the newer versions without really checking if anything is fine or not, and they have been lying to us all this time. I would recommend to at least make the server 1.8.9 only until everything is fixed and we can actually play on newer versions without any problem. Or perhaps never update it to newer versions at all. I think the majority of Mineplex players are 1.8.9, so I don't see why we would need to play on 1.17.
