How to Report a Minecraft Server for Breaking EULA

Have you ever wanted to report a Minecraft server for offering p2w services, items, or even ranks?

To report a Minecraft Server for breaking the EULA created by Mojang, you can submit a Report a Concern form, anonymously, and get the server taken down. However, this form works only for online servers, as Mojang cannot interact with offline ones.

What Minecraft servers break the EULA

Thousands of Minecraft servers collect funds by selling a wide variety of digital items for real-world money. However, they are enforced to strictly abide by the Mojang EULA. It’s a terms of service page, which gives strict rules on how server owners should use their Minecraft server software, and what is forbidden.

In that case, selling items digitally is not forbidden in any kind of way. So is the creation of server plugins and other software. However, if server owners decide to sell items that could be acquired by real-world money only, break the EULA. With that said, Mojang does not allow servers to have P2W (pay 2 win) elements, inside Minecraft. One of the sneakiest ways currently available is through selling crate keys.

Since crate keys contain powerful items, server owners can easily sell them, since players can then exchange them for in-game money, and defeat the p2w purpose.

On the other hand, most servers such as Hypixel try to sell you cosmetics, such as prefixes, ranks, and other non-p2w items.

Submitting Report a Server in Minecraft

What happens with the reported server?

If the reported Minecraft server is indeed violating Mojang’s EULA, it will get shut down from service. However, this works only for “online servers”, or in other words, works under the Mojang API. If a server “mode” is set to “offline”, the server will not respond to Mojang’s API, so it may not be taken down instantly. However, Mojang/Microsoft have been fighting against other servers for violating.
