[2024/03/24] Strike against Sunrise Station: Falsifying player count on the hub

We have issued a strike to the server community Sunrise Station for violation of the following Space Wizards Hub Rules:

  • 1.6. Do not send false information to the hub.

Sunrise has two strikes remaining before their servers are removed from the server hub. This strike will expire in one year (Sunday, March 24, 2025).


We have received player reports of Sunrise servers manipulating player count figures reported on the hub. After investigation we were able to confirm multiple examples of manipulated or inconsistent player count figures reported by their servers. We have compared these results against other game servers on the hub to rule out possibility of a wider-spread error.

We have contacted Sunrise Station’s host through Discord and they have stopped manipulating the figures. We were also able to confirm this fact ourselves with our own methods.
