It is not allowed to use a VPN- or proxy service on The Hive.
You will not be banned for the use of a VPN- or proxy service, however, we automatically reject logins from most services.
Why are VPNs and proxies not allowed?
We receive very little legitimate traffic from players that use these services; meanwhile, a lot of problematic players use them. As such, blocking these services results in a better experience for regular players.
I need to use a VPN/proxy to access The Hive - how can I join?
If you have a valid reason for using a VPN to access our server, please contact our support team to see if we can assist you. You can email us at
email@example.com or use the chat box at the bottom right of this page.
Please understand that every case is judged individually, and our team reserves the right to deny or grant exceptions at their discretion.
I am not using a VPN/proxy but can't access The Hive?
If your kick message mentions VPN/proxy services, but you are not using one, please contact our support team. You'll have to include your username and the IP you are trying to access The Hive from in your email, as we can't see this for privacy reasons. We will remove this data after your support request has been handled.
You can find out your IP address by Googling "what is my ip" or visiting https://whatismyipaddress.com/ - we'll need your "IPV4 Address".
