Out of curiosity, what version is the server?

I've seen some reports that 1.13 with a 1.12 server is slower, but that
regression has since been fixed, and the change will be available in
1.14. Though if you can upgrade the server to 1.13, you would have an
*even better* result already. (We optimized some things for 1.13 <=>
1.13, and didn't realize it slowed certain things down for 1.13 <=> 1.12.)
