What convinced you to try Velocity?

We are very interested in knowing what convinced you to use Velocity. If you’re running Velocity right now, please share why you are doing so! Feedback is crucial.

Well the main reason for me is because velocity actually has a chance of succeeding, without making the same mistakes as Bungeecord or alternatives. Making a proxy is no small job, and it takes the right person to do it while being successful. Many have tried, some with minor success, but they’ll likely never get anywhere further since the developers don’t have the reputation or the skills required. Then you came along, finally someone with the reputation and skills to actually make a project like this succeed on a larger scale than alternatives.

It’ll be an interesting journey for sure, and I look forward to seeing Velocity progress over time.

Funny name and it’s a new piece of software like me on this forum :wink:

I like new things. Your project fixes a lot of mistakes BungeeCord have. So I decided to give it a try :grinning: I hope Velocity will evolve and will succeed because it has a great potential

The recommended tag on Yive’s Mirror:joy:
and Velocity is a new proxy having a better information forwarding than BungeeCord. I liike new things(especially software) becausethey usually having a better performance and more bug fixes:tada:

Why I am trying velocity? Well… I like to try out new software and to see cool things happening with such projects

I basically just saw that luckperms supports Velocity. Saw the website and because I was setting up my bungee network at the moment I replaced it with Velocity

I decided to use velocity, because it was more secure than BungeeCord, it also uses less resources and allows better performance for not only me, but the users who play on my server.

I switched from Bungee today and I was pretty heavily engrossed in that ecosystem in terms of plugins. I kept hearing about the modern player data forwarding (no more IPWhitelist) and high efficiency. I took a chance on Sponge for a modded server and I am surprised I didn’t do it sooner, this is how I feel about velocity! Cant wait to try out the forge support soon!

I’d been using Waterfall for about 2 years now, but I had to upgrade my Forge version to the last 1.12.2 update and I just couldn’t get Waterfall to forward the connection to the Forge server (I tried going back to BungeeCord as well), it worked perfectly fine for vanilla servers though.
I thought ViaVersion might have been causing the issue, so went to check for an update there and saw a new proxy added to the supported list. I just kept on with the update though hoping it would work, but no bueno :expressionless:

So I thought hey, might as well give that Velocity thing a shot :man_shrugging: and it worked straight up without issue :grin: So thank you for your previous work on Waterfall and now for this amazing proxy that just works. :+1:
