On the 17th of November, Sandbox Game introduced the Alpha Pass to its community members. This is a play-to-earn event that will run from 29th of November to 20th of December. It went on smoothly till there were some issues on 29th of November. At 13:22 GMT, the game made an announcement via its Twitter handle indicating that the glitches came to its notice. It was not long before the Sandbox Alpha Pass Restored.
Probably nothing 👀 Even the Metaverse needs a break. We'll be back online shortly!

Prior to that announcement, members of the Sandbox community were already complaining via social media. According to them, the game was already stumbling despite just taking off. This was not encouraging to them and it made them think that Sandbox did not prepare well enough. While some players were able to get online, others were still having issues doing so.
Sandbox Alpha Pass Restored
It seems as though the issue was due to a server overload. This explains why some players were able to sign in while others could not. However, a server overload is not something to be fixed within hours. Monsta Infinite once experienced server overload and its platform crashed. Whatever the case, Sandbox did not state what exactly went wrong.
It only made an announcement saying “Probably nothing. Even the Metaverse needs a break. We’ll be back online shortly!” True to its word, the game did come back online just hours after that announcement. Players were soon able to partake in the ongoing event. Some even took to social media to show their support for the event.
