TSL - Lag Reduction
Our Rift and Items Dimension are TSL powered. This means you get reduced lag and faster join times. Our items dimension ensures you get your own private space so the chest area won't be covered in players and you won't get annoyed by people swinging weapons. Best of all, it won't lag at all server-side, providing you with a fast and lag-free experience.

Balanced PvP
Our server's pvp is like no other. We've worked to ensure that PvP has a unique balance by taking control over the defense and damage multipliers of armors, weapon's damage, and more. This allows PvP to be interesting, exciting and balanced. Our server-sided protections ensure limited impact from client modifications of damage and god mode.

Why should I join this server?
We are at the forefront of development. We were the first public server to provide mobile compatibility when mobile clients were able to join via IP, we were the first server to produce a free and publicly accessible proxy that allows other servers to enjoy a multi-world environment and we were the first server to build our own lite implementation of the server software to provide a much more scalable and smooth experience for our players. We constantly improve on our existing services and build new ones to accommodate our users. When enough people request something or another server provides something you would like here, we build it, and we make it better.

What would keep me here long-term?
Our community is one of the most significant factors. We have people that have been around for years, the kind of people you will make friends with and have fun with for years to come. Further, because our server accommodates different preferences, there's always something for you to do and people around that enjoy those same things. We also take suggestions seriously and work towards improving the parts of the server that our users love whilst also adding completely novel aspects.

What's different here compared to other servers?
It's an underlying goal of the server to do what others have not. The owner, developers and other staff are active within the community. We're always evaluating user feedback and potential areas of improvement. For example, people started complaining after 1.3 that weapons were unbalanced and pvp wasn't fun anymore; well, we fixed that. We didn't just ban a few weapons and call it done, no we went all the way; we developed a system that allows us to alter weapons damage, velocity and more changes to come, and appointed a council to oversee the balance and make changes where necessary, with the goal of making as many weapons useful as possible.

How do we support the server?
Primarily through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/darkgamingterraria
Over time we hope to increase the value of our users' pledges by providing more exclusive features and access whilst having no compromise to the experience of those that have not yet pledged their support. Your money goes directly to covering the costs of hardware and networking services that facilitate our experience, and you can feel comfort in knowing that you are responsible for keeping our server fast, stable and fun!

If you're not in the position to support us through money, you also have the opportunity to be a part of building and maintaining our server with us. You can apply to be a Moderator to enforce the rules and keep our server safe, or you can apply your building skills to build new maps for our gamemodes. If you're particularly technical, you can help us maintain the software itself.

And that's it. The rest is history, which is yours to make.
