InPvP and Lifeboat are two of the most popular server networks within the Minecraft: Pocket Edition community. They both feature fun mini-games for all ages, and strive to provide friendly, positive communities. So the big question is, which one is better?
To answer that, no one server is truly better than the other. It’s all, clearly, opinion based. Let’s very briefly compare the two.
Lifeboat Network: Survival Games, Capture the Flag, Bounty Hunter, Sky Wars, Frontier, Teams, Spleef, & Fleet
InPvP Nova: Block Hunt, TNT Run, Sky Wars, & Build Battles
Support (via Twitter)
Lifeboat Network: A response from their support team usually takes between 1-2 days (or longer) due to the high amount of tweets they receive from customers/players. This isn’t very good, though it could easily be fixed with additional support representatives.
InPvP Nova: You can expect a reply from their team usually within 12 hours.
Lifeboat Network: Offers purchasable ranks within their Lifeboat+ app on the iOS and Google Play store, as well as a variety of different kits for their game modes.
InPvP Nova: Since their revamp, InPvP no longer offers any ranks in the meantime, kits, or any purchasable products (for now).
This is all good information for a comparison, but it isn’t enough to really determine which server the community prefers. The only reason these networks, along the thousands of others, still exist, is because of their player bases.
We decided to ask around the community to see which server each person enjoyed playing on the most, and why. Here’s what they said.

Okay so I personally prefer Lifeboat. My reasons being since there are more players found on LB, games can start quicker without having to wait too long which I found to be a problem on InPvP with game modes like TNT Run. Lifeboat has more game modes and has cool features like pets and things to interact with (e.g: the signs that you can tap to get food. I thought that was cool.) Lifeboat’s lobby is massive and they have many places to explore even if it’s just in the main hub. Lifeboat has English speakers so I can actually communicate with people (though most are kids that are trying to hook up ?), as soon as I joined InPvP I couldn’t understand a thing anyone said in chat because of the language barriers. So LB allows me to communicate better with the players. Lastly, Lifeboat’s support is alright because they actually respond (I tried tweeting to InPvP but they never responded so that sucked.)

I’d say InPvP is my favorite of the two. While LBSG has been one of the longest running servers with a pretty good selection of mini games, (I give them mad props for it), InPvP is an equally big network that exploded in popularity and provides a fresh selection of unique games and really cool server themes. Space is pretty epic.

Well I really enjoy InPvP network because they are very responsive they do what us the players ask them if we want a new game too and their spawn is absolutely amazing. 🙂

InPVP is superior. I like Blockhunt.

I like InPVP Nova better because it doesnt seem as pay-to-win as Lifeboat, also its a lot less laggy and doesn’t crash as much.
