I'm fairly new to Minecraft and the forums and wasn't sure where to put this thread, so I just took a shot in the dark and hoped that this was a fairly good place to post this.
I was wondering how I can play Minecraft "online". By online, I mean joining other people's servers that are not LAN. I heard in the Alpha phase, you needed a premium account to play online, but I'm not sure if this is still valid. If it is, how do I make a premium account?
Thank you Epic. I have recently bought the game and have fallen in love. Although fairly new (5 deaths later and I found out that to make planks you use 1 wood), I plan to hone my building skills and branch out into creating structures and other buildings full of goodies.
