Minecraft Servers are a popular feature in Minecraft. Millions of players use them on a monthly basis.
Servers enable players from all over the world to play modified versions of Minecraft together via server-side plugins. Every server will have a different set of plugins which makes for a unique gameplay experience.
Cracked servers are somewhat similar in gameplay to regular Minecraft servers, but they have some key technical differences.
Cracked Minecraft is an unofficial copy. Although it is illegal to obtain Minecraft, cracking Minecraft is very popular. Some estimates suggest that millions of Minecraft gamers have not purchased the game.
TLauncher is the most downloaded version of "cracked Minecraft", with over 1,000,000 unique downloads. However, players using any version "cracked Minecraft” cannot play on regular Minecraft servers such as Hypixel and Mineplex. These servers are only open to players who have purchased the game legally.
Instead of playing on "Cracked" Minecraft servers, players must use "Cracked Minecraft Versions". These servers were specifically created to bypass Minecraft account security checks. They allow players to join even if they don't have a valid Minecraft account.
Servers that allow cracked clients generally have lower quality servers than regular ones. Hypixel is an example of this. It is the most well-known Minecraft server and has the highest quality. Hypixel won't accept crack players to join.
As mentioned previously, it is not recommended to use illegitimate or unofficial copies of Minecraft. This is probably why cracked Minecraft users see this message when they try to join regular servers.
Many Minecraft servers default to the "Failed login: The authentication servers are currently down" message when authenticating Minecraft accounts. Tlauncher must not be used by players who see this message.
While this question is open to debate, players should opt to purchase a legal copy. The best servers will allow players to change their skins and support the developers.
Servers that have been compromised will require players to create passwords when they join. Cracked servers can't authenticate or distinguish unique players and this is why they are so difficult to crack.
When playing on the cracked Servers, players should not use any passwords from other services. It is best to create a unique password that does not matter if it is exposed.
