We know that it is not possible for two people to play using the same computer. To play multiplayer you need two or more computers, that is, each player will have to have their computer or cell phone to play.


1 – Play over the Internet

This multiplayer game format allows you to play with any player anywhere in the world, as long as those players are connected to the internet. The technical term for this network structure is called WAN.

THE WAN covers a great physical distance.

the internet is the biggest WAN of the world.

Routers connect Local Home Networks to a WAN.

We are not going to use technical and difficult terms, for simplicity let's just call it INTERNET, or play over the INTERNET. If you want to know more about what it is WAN and other types of networks Click here.

2 – Minecraft Server

The server will be the main machine, the reference machine, the main Minecraft where all other players will connect to it.

For example, let's say that João and Maria want to play together:

John says
-Maria, let's play together? Let's build something together.
And Mary says:
– Okay, but I'm in another city! How can we play together?

John then says:
-Maria is easy, let's play through a server on the Internet

As explained in the post Minecraft: Networking with Friends in Multiplayer Mode > Home Network, João can be the SERVER for home/local networks.

For João to play with friends from another city, a game will be needed. WAN, but in this case it is not recommended to use John's machine as a Server for the following reasons:

  1. You will need to perform more advanced settings to open the machine as a server on the Internet
  2. As it is the Internet, the machine will be open to the world, consequently it will be vulnerable to hacker attacks (DDoS)
  3. Through the Internet many people in the world can connect to the computer and you will need a machine with a lot of resources

What we recommend in this case is to use public servers to play Minecraft in MultiPlayer mode over the Internet.
