I have played MC on and off since beta. I got back into MC in the past couple months. I resurrected my own realm and tried to get some players to join my realm. Seems like everyone who joins my realm leaves after less than an hour play time. So I decided to try other realms out. All the realms I played on were deserted and had much smaller towns than my person realm. I have looked around for a server to play on, but they all seem to be very far from vanilla. I don't want to play a modded version of MC. I want to play a multiplayer version of MC that is as close to vanilla as possible.
Does anyone know where I could find a good community of vanilla survival players? Are there any servers recruiting that are similar to minecrack? I am looking for a community that is active. I am not looking a bunch of people who play for an hour never to be seen again.
