    posted a message on Mojang is adding too much to minecraft

    Minecraft was good before 1.9, i remember playing 1.6 and 1.8 as a kid, those days were awesome. The relaxing music, the sound effects, the semi-good textures and the singleplayer world was so much fun. I Always tier up when i remember the good old minecraft music. After the combat update, i stopped playing as often as i used to. THe only good part about the updates are the new command blocks, easier to set up and more possibilities. I Would remove. It's just annoying taking you 1.5 seconds to hit, if you want to deal damage, and waste 30 levels of enchanting for the "3rd" grade enchantment. Whoever thought of those definently doesnt know anything about MC. Why do you even need the bookshelfs to get 30 levels of ehcnanting when you waste al,l of your levels? And why did they change Clay for a block uglier than diorite. I Mean, its getting too mainstream.


    Are you talking about 1.8 Beta? Because the enchanting system was changed so that you'd only ever use three levels. And clay hasn't changed at all.

    As for the 1.5 seconds, it's actually 0.8 with a diamond sword, if I remember correctly. It's a negligible amount of time to wait.

    A simple skin change.

    Given that a player would only be able to vaguely look like one, as the model would be different, that wouldn't work. A player's behavior is entirely different as well.

    No. I'm sorry, but first of all let's go over the name. Twitcher. I originally thought it was called this because the twitcher was like a shadow- it moved and "twitched". However, looking at the picture, I realized it was called this because of Twitch. This is a huge no-no in my eyes, making a lot of players angry and there is probably copyright and legal work to put this name in. It just seems like a advertisement to call it that.

    Also, it really just seems like it has no use. You can't throw a mob in a game just to throw a mob in a game! It has to have some purpose other than being a hassle. I think you imagined this as a fun challenge, or even just a challenge, but really, it is just a bother. I don't like the idea that I have to leave the game to continue to play normally.

    The entire point is that it's realistic. All of the things you're putting forwards as no-nos? Those are entirely accurate to real life. You see those things as negatives, but if it were implemented, you could just ignore it, as you do in real life... right?

    You're highly overestimating what a "real" minecraft player looks like. You couldnt tell the difference between them and these twitchers.

    It seems pretty easy to me. It's not like Minecraft players are able to imitate these things.

    I like the idea, however it is implemented. This has my support.

    Very creative, but... its looks, mechanics, and uses are a bit out of place for Minecraft. Even considering things like the Guardians.

    Hm. Well, annoying things attaching themselves to the Minecraft playerbase is realistic, to be sure. I know I don't normally support due to realism, but I'm quite tempted to now. I'm sure that a majority will say that you can just ignore it, but as with any suggestion, just ignoring it does not fix the problem. Which is quite excellent, because this is obviously designed to be an annoyance. Very realistic. It's also probably easy to code and implement. There couldn't possibly be anything else to fulfill the role it does while also not being annoying, if only the programmers took time to put effort in. No, that's silly talk.


    This has my support.

    I don't know why this thread keeps getting revived, but that's besides the point. The comment you replied to was already low-hanging fruit, and going along with change you can't agree with will not make anyone feel better.

    The thread keeps getting revived because people need an outlet to complain and the last thread complaining about a specific version was so old that I believe the mods locked it. If this thread died, or was locked, a new one would spring up.

    I'd prefer making more logical and less emotional assessments to change, but that's just me.

    I feel like I should say something profound, but I'm not going to.

    The first 50 or so times I found diamonds it was a magical feeling. Now that feeling is nothing short of void because the idea of discovery and exploration on your own terms was never cultivated, never expanded.


    I'm pretty sure that's just you getting bored. I still have fun discovering and exploring, and quite a few things from recent updates factor into that. It's still a magical feeling for me to find diamonds. You say the game should be focused on some particular elements, but without any sort of logic to back it up, those are just things you want.

    ...Though I'd like to talk even more about this, I have a feeling that a discussion of what Minecraft should have prioritized or which direction it should go probably needs another thread.

    It's amusing that the only argument used is the "vocal majority" fallacy. Is there really nothing better anyone can come up with? Because that's the only thing I've seen, and it has no logical value.

    "Only argument?" That's the first time anything like that has been used that I can see. Are you reading everything?

    I know my fallacies. The one you think I'm using is called "silent majority." I am not. What I'm actually doing is asking you to verify that you're looking at a majority of the people who are not silent. I don't care about those who don't post. So let me clarify:

    Of those who do post, are you looking at a majority of reddit posters on r/Minecraft, or are you looking at a vocal minority on the site? Are you relying on the availability heuristic, anchoring, confirmation bias, or some other cognitive bias to reach your conclusions?

    If they listened to reddit they would scrap most of the 1.13 plan

    The plan as we know of it at this point consists of two things: command changes and texture changes. I'm pretty sure that the few things you saw would not result in scrapping "most" of anything. You also need to ask yourself: Is this really the majority, or just the loudest group saying these things?

    Microsoft*, I really think every update messes up something, and adds little, just my opinion, but I still play on 1.8.9 for the most part, I do still have a world on the latest version, I always will. But people have been saying these things for a long time as far as I know.

    Mojang*, Microsoft has no bearing on what Mojang does. Out of curiosity, what changes would get you to play on the latest version? Do you think they need to add more of something? Less?

    If they listened to the community there would be far more underground content, but no, they even made it less interesting in 1.7 (there are suggestions to add more content on Reddit, the only place Mojang actually reads, and all they said is that it is "impossible" to even add customization even though it only took me a few minutes to hack 1.12.2 without using MCP so it almost perfectly replicates 1.6.4, just by changing a few numbers). They sure seem to have forgotten that the game is called "Mine"craft.

    "Less interesting?" To me it's "not nearly as daunting/annoying." I'm part of the community too, you know. That said, yes, customization and content would be good. But how many people are actually asking Mojang for something consistent in that area? Is it really a significant enough number to catch their attention?

    MogMiner, who no longer works on the game, said it was "impossible" three years ago? What is that supposed to demonstrate?

    It's just a name. Taken literally it'd be a quite different game.
