I've made a brand new 1.17.1 SMP server. It's open to anyone who does NOT have malicious intent (very important). The server will be opening TODAY (10/15/21) at 5PM EST where the borders will be opened and chaos will ensue.
If you're interested please visit our discord server: https://discord.gg/FMVQ68QG.
Thank you! I hope to see you there!
