    Oh yeah!
    It would also mean I could invite many of my friends to try it out!

    THIS IS AWESOME I’m so excited for the possibilities of this, and I know you and the team can pull it off if you really want to! Good luck!

    You are right. I am a ninja bridger, and after a ton of practice it is easy to pull off on Java. The main worry if I am correct is the easy god bridging. Zombie plays bedrock and he said it’s so easy to god bridge on bedrock.

    You are correct, without 1.8 combat is the reason for combos, and with 1.9 combat people focus on powerful crits rather than combos, making pvp that little bit more normal.

    If BE gets added, would speed bridging be allowed? And also what about wall bridging? (Jumping along walls by placing blocks on the edge)

    The moderators will address these questions with time, but it's a work-in-progress and will probably be quite a while until BE is playable by all on the Sandlot. And to answer these concerns, there will have to be much discussion among the moderators, however don't take this idea for granted. As c0w said in the beginning post of this thread, they're just testing this, but don't know if it actually will happen. Much is undecided so far, as has been stated.

    May I ask what software you are using for the cross-play support, just out of curiosity?

    Bedrock edition support on the Sandlot would be amazing! This server would have a lot more people if it supported Bedrock Edition as some people have to play on devices such as phone, tablet, ETC.

    I have a concern about JE and BE servers running together. Will only JE players have to buy Bedrock Edition of Minecraft? Otherwise, thank you and a very happy Halloween to y'all!

    If you want to play BE and you don’t have it, the only way to play Sandlot on BE is to buy it. So yes, JE players with probably have to buy BE.

    To clear up any confusion here, you won't have to buy Bedrock if you're a Java player. This is just for anyone who owns Bedrock to be able to play with Java players on the Sandlot.

    This is exactly right @Mariocrity. Thank you!

    Think of the Sandlot as a playground (my favorite analogy, btw). We've always had one gate into the park -- Java Bedrock Edition. That gate works fine, and there are plenty of people who can get to that gate. IF we are able to support Bedrock, we'll be adding a second gate into the playground so that people who couldn't get to the first gate can now join us.
