The server you select in Cookie Run: Kingdom indeed counts. Your server selection may limit your ability to play alongside friends. It may also determine the level of challenge posed by the opponents you face in the Arena Mode. For example, many novices favour the Hollyberry server, which is reputed to feature less demanding adversaries in the Arena Mode. Therefore, one’s choice of server in Cookie Run: Kingdom can significantly mould their gaming experience.

Currently, it is not possible to switch servers in Cookie Run: Kingdom. This often requested feature allows players to play with friends who are on different servers or switch to servers with different difficulty levels. Despite the frequent requests from players, the developers have not announced any plans to introduce this feature.

You need to uninstall the game, reinstall it, and then create a new account to change servers in Cookie Run Kingdom. After reinstallation, the game will prompt you to choose a server.

You will have three server options to choose from: Pure Vanilla, Hollyberry, and Dark Cacao. Remember, creating a new account means starting over from scratch so ensure you’re alright with losing your current progress before selecting this option.

In our ‘Can You Change Servers?’ section, it was mentioned that Cookie Run: Kingdom currently does not support the option to switch between different servers. The game developers didn’t provide an explanation as to why they opted not to include this feature, which would allow players to swap between different regions. No further details beyond what we’ve already covered are available, leaving us with no specific insight into their decision.

Can You Change Servers on Cookie Run: Kingdom?

Before creating your account, you must go through a short server selection process. Here, players are given a few opinions, such as:

  • Pure Vanilla
  • Hollyberry 
  • Dark Cacao

However, the developers have built a reputation of frequently updating the list and adding new servers. 

How to Check What Server You Are On

How to Check What Server You Are On in Cookie Run Kingdom

To check what server you are on in Cookie Run Kingdom, begin by opening the game. Before the screen which asks you to Touch to Start, your server’s name will appear in the top left corner.

It’s a well-established fact that some servers are better than others. Depending on your skill and situation, you might want to pick a different one from a newbie. Regardless, we analyze which server is better by weighing their respective PROs and CONs.

The Pure Vanilla Server

Pure Vanilla Server

Arguably the most well-known server, Pure Vanilla, was the original—the first. When Cookie Run Kingdom was first released, this was the ONLY server available. 

As a result, this comes with the added benefit that most players can be found on the Pure Vanilla server. In turn, this also means that these players are better as they have had more experience with the game.

Depending on what you are looking for, players wanting a competitive experience might want to pick this server. For example, pick Pure Vanilla if you are looking to compete against more challenging players. However, select either of the two other servers for an easier time. 

The Hollyberry Server

Hollyberry Server

The Hollyberry server has built a reputation in the Cookie Run Kingdom community; it’s much easier than the alternative servers. Its recent release in September of 2021 has impacted the type of players found on this server. Only new players were able to join it because existing players aren’t able to switch between servers.

For example, it only takes 200k team power to reach Masters 5 tier in Arena Mode, which rewards players with 15000 crystals at the end of every season. Players can spend the crystals gained from this on Gacha to unlock new characters and upgrade their existing cookies. As it only takes about one month to achieve this, this server is appealing to players looking to progress through the game quickly.

The Dark Cacao Server

Dark Cacao Server

As the latest of the three options, the Dark Cacao server comes with many added benefits. Noticeably, it has the fewest number of players (experienced and in-experienced), which makes Arena Mode a cakewalk.

My testing confirmed this, which found that the players are MUCH easier to compete against.

Keep in mind that you can not change servers once you have picked one. In addition, players on different servers cannot connect. For this reason, it’s dangerous choosing the Dark Cacao server. Suppose you have friends playing Cookie Run Kingdom. In that case, they are more likely to play on Pure Vanilla or Hollyberry. If you intend to join them at any point, you will have to opt for either of the two other options.

The above Cookie Run: Kingdom Server Selection guide demonstrated how to change servers in Cookie Run Kingdom. In addition, we explained the difference between the Pure Vanilla, Hollyberry, and Dark Cocoa servers. Finally, we explored which server is better.
