    posted a message on Why does Minecraft lag in the first place?
    So why is it the only game I have ever played that lags?

    Not that easy to answer because it could be related to a lot of things. For starters; your Java version, any optional custom settings you use in Minecraft, Java system settings which could be changed, etc, etc. Example: Minecraft 1.8 is extremely laggy for me, close to non-playable. But the previous version 1.7.10 poses no problem at all. Also; the latest 1.8.2 snapshot (at the time of writing 1.8.2-pre6) works a lot better for me as well.

    As to the game being simple... Careful there. It may look simple, I fully agree, but I think its also fair to say that Minecraft is one of the more underrated kind of games where complexity is concerned. I mean... One simple example; it allows you to build pretty complex digital circuitry and some players have taken this to such extremes that they even managed to build CPU's, calculators (somewhat the same, I know) and even whole computers within Minecraft.

    So with that in mind... No, I don't agree that it's a simple game. Simple looking, that's for sure.

    posted a message on POLL:about mobs
    Nice poll!

    As to herobrine; I don't see the problem here. We all know he doesn't exist (or did it; considering that they removed it in 1.8 according to the changelog :P ) so heck; in the end it's simply a funny jest. I like it!

    My favorite hostile mob. is definitely the creeper. For the simple reason that when you go mining or walking in the main land you'll always have this guy in your mind because of the sneaky way he attacks. Also because he's pretty often to be found close to a skeleton. Usually the first thing on my mind when fighting a skeleton is "ok, watch out for the creeper... doh, where is it?!".

    I like cats in real life so obviously that's my favorite passive mob. Funnily enough its a bit related to my hostile mob preference I guess, considering how it can help me scare off creepers.

    Unfortunately I couldn't vote on the boss anymore so figured I'd share; definitely the wither. Not merely because of the mob itself, but also how you can fight it. I mean; the Enderdragon is usually a one on one (or many) fight; you can bring other players with you on a server (or lan game) but that's it. The wither otoh. will also easily start attacking other (passive) mobs which gives you a lot of extra advantage to fight and kill it.

    And I know; usually you'd create a smaller environment so you can fight it in relative close quarters which gives you even more advantage. But yah; I also like fighting it out in the open at times to add a bit off extra suspense. And the first time it immediately went after a couple of sheep had me laughing soo badly ;)
