    Suggestion Title:
    Overwrite their stuff
    Short Description:
    Keep the network like it was, but release a server blacklist bypass mod.
    Long Description:
    It should be possible to make a mod that replaces the server blacklist library with some random garbage. Then it could be put for download on the network website and download automatically with any modpack in the MyM launcher.​

    While this is possible, even legally (by run time patching it), is that really what we want?

    im gonna be the voice of reason here and say this is most likely illegal it would be considered a "ddos attack" and could led to more legal issues then the situation is rn

    It would not be a ddos attack, it could be considered illegal in some jurisdictions, but I think it would fall under the same legality as mods, but it could in theory be taken as bad faith in the unlikely event that legal action were to take place.

    This would still require players to install the MyM launcher to play MyM packs, and also involves antagonising Mojang, neither of which are ideal options.

    AFAIK all launchers support adding java options. (I only got MultiMC & legacy FTB to verify)
    * Download mod
    * Add java argument in launcher
    * Profit

    Since Mojang (conträption?) wants to use a load of legal mumbo-jumbo to shut down servers for earning peanuts,
    then my moral says it's ok to use every legal loophole to bypass it. Someday they have to wake up and realize that
    their shiny dollars all come from the community, no community - no dollars...

    If this is legal I believe that it is a good thing to keep in mind if the worst comes to pass

    Still involves a lot of work that new players won't touch.
