Father Robert Ballecer, a Catholic priest and former tech blogger has set up an official Minecraft server for the Vatican.
Ballecer’s intent behind the server is to create a place for “gamers who want a little less ‘toxic’ and a bit more community.”
Unsurprisingly, within 24 hours of the server launching it was immediately DDoS’d.
However, the tech-savvy Ballacer clearly anticipated the attacks, and revealed that the server was just a test server setup to catch potentially troublesome User IDs and IPs.
The real production server will launch tomorrow.
When the server goes live, you’ll be able to visit it by pointing your client to minecraft.digitaljesuit.com.
