MEGA places were games whose servers could hold up to 50 players with a reduced amount of lag than normal due to increased capabilities of the computation power with additional players. MEGA places used more of ROBLOX's server resources, and were only allowed to be created by Builders Club (BC) members. MEGA places were officially released in August 2011 after several periods of testing with 100 players on ROBLOX's game testing sites. MEGA places were removed some time in 2014, most likely July 28th (that date was once stated on this article talking about how that was the day NBC users could start using MEGA places, but it was not proved with a source, and NBC members were actually never able to use MEGA places, but could make places that allowed up to 50 players after the removal of MEGA places). After this happened, all users were able to make places that could have up to 50 players.

Personal servers, which were also a feature limited to Builders Club members, were automatically made a MEGA server. After an unknown time, they removed the picture symbolizing that it was a MEGA place. They did create, and keep the picture that shows that a game is a Personal Server. Then the Personal Servers themselves were removed June 8, 2016.

Groups often made their places 'Mega' as they could hold much more members of the group than a standard server.

Famous Mega Places on ROBLOX

  • Shedletsky's Telamon's Big World was once a MEGA place. It could, and still can, hold up to 120 players.
  • Matt Dusek's Balance place was once a MEGA place. It could, and still can, hold up to 255 players.
  • Shedletsky's Crossroads 1024 - WIP was once a MEGA place. It could hold up to 50000 players. This is the highest player limit that any game on ROBLOX has. It was changed in 2017 to have only a max amount of 100 players. This was likely because the servers would not be able to handle upwards of 100 players and soon crash from overloading.
  • Alexnewtron's Meepcity was once a MEGA place. It could, and still can, hold up to 120 players. This is the same player count as Shedletsky's Telamon's Big World.
