Here’s the crux of the article in video form:
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on April 20, 2022) follows:
Minecraft is a successful survival, building and adventure game. It is currently available for multiple consoles and platforms in different versions (Minecraft Java and Bedrock).
Recently, Minecraft received the 1.18.30 stable update with some tweaks and changes. However, it seems that the update also brought serious performance issues on certain platforms.
More specifically, many Minecraft players on Nintendo Switch are experiencing issues such as freezing, severely long load times, and server crashes. However, other platforms may also be affected.
Minecraft 1.18.30 update brought freezing and performance issues on Nintendo Switch
what they did?
Since the last update in switch everything just go wrong, the loadings screens are longer, the game freezes when autosaves and the popping is a mess loading for long time and walking in the literally nothing, the game runs well before the update and now is an unplayable mess
I can’t get into my server
I’ve never had an issue with this until now, but whenever I’ve tried to get into the server it’s stuck on the “locating server” and but it just freezes on that screen. Plus my friend says I’m on the server when this happens.
Other platforms could also be experiencing performance issues
The vast majority of reports on the matter come from Nintendo Switch users. However, there are also some reports from players on other platforms (such as Xbox and PC) describing similar issues.
Is anyone else’s game completely broken with this new update? (Bedrock, Xbox One)
I play with my friend on switch and already I’ve noticed this new update has completely broken Minecraft.
The main menu takes an absurdly long time to load now, and when you try to load in to a world the menu starts having a stroke for 10 minutes before letting you in. We’ve only been playing for an hour now and we’ve already noticed that /fill isn’t working and command blocks are being super weird as well. Is this just on our ends?
Nah this update took a giant shit on like every console version. Just scroll through the posts on this sub lol
Now my Switch version has 200% more screen freezes than normal!
There is still no official acknowledgment on the issue from the developers. We will keep our eyes open for new related events that arise in the future to update this story.
