Can't Log In to Build Server

  • Minecraft Middle Earth is a Minecraft community that recreates the world described by JRR Tolkien and his writings. Everyone can participate in organized events in which we collaborate to create major landmarks, terrain, caves, castles, towns, farms and more.

    To get started, visit The New Player Guide
  • This weekend 20-21 April the website will be unavailable for a few hours for a scheduled upgrade and maintenance. Estimated time that the site will be unavailable will be around 3 hours.

  • This community does not generate revenue and relies on its members and financial contributors to keep it running.

    For a complete month, we would need around 235 USD for a break-even situation.

Hey, y'all! It's been a very, very long time since I last joined the server. For some reason I can't make any connection with the server, and I have no idea what's wrong. I've disconnected/reconnected, uninstalled/reinstalled Minecraft. Maybe I'm black listed? Idk, anyone think they can help?

Hey Fro, no you shouldn't be banned or blacklisted. The server was down for an extended period a day ago, but is now back up. We are running 1.8, and as of this post it is up.

The ip is build.mcmiddleearth.com, not arda.mcme.co like it used to be. I don't know if that's what you're using - just making sure;)

That is a client side error. Have you tried relogging (closing and reopening your minecraft)?

The connection refused part leads me to believe that you do not have the correct address. build.mcmiddleearth.com should get you on, if the problem persists try connecting to the ip with 5.9.85.67

If none of that work try a trace route on mac or windows.
Best of luck @Starpro747 ,
