READ THE ENTIRE POST, AND THIS ISN'T A HATE THREAD.

I've had enough of this. Has anyone else noticed how people have been buzzing around like flies saying "BRING MINECON 2013 TO <country name here>"? Seriously, Mojang chooses where minecon 2013 should be. It's very annoying seeing people whining for minecon to be somewhere ridiculous, like their unheard-of hometown or their backyard. The people who actually want minecon 2013 to be in a well-known city are all just suggesting it to be near somewhere minecon has already been, such as some American city or London.

The threads that have been made to vote for minecon 2013's location are just centered around bringing it to America or Europe again. I've seen two threads that originally or STILL ARE suggesting to bring minecon to America AGAIN. The logic I've seen in people is so stupid. It goes like this:

Quote


Yeah, my home country America is SOOOO awesome it deserves to have minecon again! All those countries like Australia and China are so poor and swarming with diseases, so America will have minecon again because it's so awesome!


The people with the quoted logic are usually children with absolutely no knowledge of any other countries economy. Besides, if minecon was brought to Europe or America again I would be willing to bet a large sum of money that some American kid is going to start a topic saying "Bring minecon 2014 to America!" and the whole process will repeat itself. Calling me a liar? I have examples. These go to show how people want minecon near or at where they live and how selfishly they are thinking.

Spoiler:

Now I know that someone might say how I'm singling out Americans, but it's everyone who is doing this. The problem is that 99% of the people suggesting the location for minecon 2013 are suggesting the country that they live in. There's no point of listening to a community suggesting like that so Mojang is definitely choosing where the next minecon is for themselves.

Please, I myself am not suggesting where minecon should be (Anymore at least) and I beg for everyone else to do the same. Suggesting a country that isn't yours? Good for you! An unselfish act. Suggesting that it should be America AGAIN just because you live in America and you think it is so grand and mighty? Stop living in your dream world. I know there are people who are saying "But I can't go to minecon if it's not in America/Europe!" well tough luck. Should've saved up at the time and went. Just because you didn't go doesn't mean that minecon should come to your country all over again.

Now, Mojang will pick at random a country that hasn't had minecon before, so they don't look racial at all. Stop trying to make America have minecon again just so you can go or show America off in front of the world, you'll never get minecon there.

Now, just to clear things up. NO flaming or whining about minecon. No yogscast debating, no racist posts on how you think your country is better than others, just simple agreement/disagreement. That's all I ask for. No immature posts saying "IN MY BACKYARD IN AMERICA PLZPLZPLZ". Besides, this thread isn't for suggesting locations. DO NOT SAY "You lost your temper over 2 threads?" because I'm not angry, just tired of people wanting minecon to be in the same country twice when it will never be. You can't maturely justify minecon being in the same country twice with iron-hard supporting points (Don't even try).

Post your opinions below.
To all of you people who think Notch is still working on the game, he stopped working on Minecraft in late 2011. Get your facts straight and stop spamming his twitter about Minecraft updates.

I'm not really one to try to fight where a con is, I'd rather put my focus on saving up and being prepared to go wherever it decides to be. So when it's announced, I'll be ready to purchase the plane ticket (If it's far away or overseas)

I have to fully agree with you on this topic, most people posting in the threads about where Minecon should be (it's already stupid that there's more then one thread out there on this) are heavily suggesting that it should be close to where they live. People are naturally selfish in this behavior it seems.

I recall I commented in the one topic that it should be Japan cause it would be hilarious if it was called Mainukuraft Con, I myself live in Europe so I would never get to visit Minecon then, nor does that really bother me.

Mojang will surely pick a suitable place for their Minecon, and no doubt people will whine and complain when it is not anywhere near them, well I agree with the tough luck comment, you know Minecon is coming, you can safe up long before it is announced, so you got sufficient finances when it's far away, and extra pocket money when it's close by.

So in short, stop being selfish people and just safe up for it when it comes.

Some people are just kidding. In my opinion the next Minecon should be in a continent they haven't yet been to, Asia probably has the most Minecraft fans then Oceania, Africa and S. America, so that's my suggestion, not because I live there.

I think you've blown it out of proportion, or you're just trolling. There's always going to be some idiot who asks for Minecon where they live, I think it's better not to feed them with your raging. I don't see it as that much of a problem, everybody would love Minecon where they live, however illogical that might be.

Yes you are very right Mojang does decide where ever Minecon will be hosted

People need to stop complaining they decide not you


Australia does not have disease who ever said that is very wrong, also America isn't the most important country in the world but people think the world revolves around America......

Really people should stop making assumptions about countries

We know Mojang picks, everybody has been suggesting places it could be. Whether Mojang listens to them or not is their choice.

To be honest, trashing other countries is how the host bidding works in a lot of competitions. "Qatar can't host 2022 World Cup because it's tiny, Spain can't host the 2020 Olympics because it's poor." I think it's stupid too.

I don't think the fact that Mojang picks is not an ultimate reason why debates about the 2013 Minecon should stop, there's debates for the Olympics and World Cup and there are trolls in them too, just because the IOC and FIFA pick where it's hosted doesn't mean people shouldn't talk about it.

I agree with this thread. I don't understand why people think that just because they live in a specific location they are entitled to have Minecon near them. The fact of the matter is if Mojang is smart, they will put the convention in places that are easy to access, or at the very least, where there is a large amount of Minecraft players.

I agree 100%. If any of what I'm going to say is offensive, I apologise in advance.

Well wherever it goes it will help with that country's tourism, like with 2016 Olympics in Rio, 2022 FIFA in Qatar, 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. This year it's helping to promote Disneyland and Paris. People who go to Minecon this year will probably go sightseeing around Paris (If they haven't already).

Selfish Americans think that our country is poor? Excuse me, America had to go through a recession because of the GFC, and are probably going to go through ANOTHER one (I don't know much about American economy - just acknowledging that fact, I may be wrong). Australia pulled through the GFC. Guess what, no recession. I could keep rambling on.

Those who put up posts like that are completely immature (problably racist, as well), have NO idea about other countries' economies and they want everything for themselves. 2012 isn't in America, tough luck. I can't go either. See me complaining about that? I don't.

Also with people saying that Minecraft will die next year are completely wrong. It might die in like 20 years time (who knows?) but not next year, come on! I say it will probably die when Pokemon dies (again, who knows?). There are some people who like old games (I personally like Space Invaders and Asteroids). Again, I can keep rambling on (I'm only 17).

Overall, Mojang will pick the next place. It'd be nice if it was in Australia or New Zealand next year, but it's their choice, not ours. Did anyone suggest Disneyland to them? I don't know. It'll help with the tourism.

It should spread around the world, so EVERYONE gets a chance. I'd also like to see the Pokemon World Championships come down south, as well. Doesn't have to just be America & Europe who get stuff. Pokemon is worldwide, and so is Minecraft (look at me, comparing Minecraft to Pokemon, how crazy is that?)

People should really stop whinging. I don't mind the suggestions about where it should go, but I don't like people who are completely immature, ignorant, and up themselves, putting up immature, ignorant, and selfish posts. Those who do that shouldn't go to Minecon, that's that.

To get a ticket to Minecon this year would cost me $2794USD.

That's money I don't have, but I'm OK with that. Little kids however want EVERYTHING. They expect it here and now. It's kinda frustrating seeing how ignorant they are. Even if it was at their back door, I bet they would be begging their parents for the money to get in the front doors of Minecon let alone a ticket for a plane.

Whilst you're right, people who pay for Minecraft do have some sort of 'right' to give suggestions to where Minecon 2013 should be. Whether Mojang listens or not, different story.

People will always want to take the shortest path to success when they want something, any Minecrafter will want to take a chance for a piece of Minecon action, heck I want the next Minecon here in Asia, but as you said, Mojang chooses not us.
Hey guys, I have an idea! let's be negative and a total ass towards the game developers! that will make them listen to us!
Note the sarcasm.

I may have gone a bit overboard in what I said. People can suggest where it can go, but my point is: Do they have a valid and logical reason behind it? Taking Minecon to somewhere like Asia or Australia would not only get people from there to go, but it would make Minecraft grow even more (there's my valid reason).

If it goes back to the US, whatever, I don't care. It's Mojang's choice. Still, did anyone suggest Paris to them? Or was it Mojang themselves?

In today's market that would cost you around $3500NZD.

Meh, I'm fine with an intelligent discussion about suitable Minecon locations (I think Sydney, Australia, my home city, would be a good choice, but I wouldn't be too angry if it were somewhere else), but I agree, those American kids are really annoying.
No, there has never, ever been a sandbox game with a story or ending... except Grand Theft Auto... and Saints Row... and Red Dead Redemption... and Crack Down... and Assassins Creed...

i mean you are so right no one should whine about minecon 2013 being in some middle of nowhere place with not enough room to host it. But you do need to think that they are just suggestions, nothing bad is gonna happen because of simple SUGGESTIONS!!!

How about Mojang listens to feedback on Minecon?

Have a couple of different events or something, maybe one in US/Canada, one in Europe, one in Asia, and another wherever they want. AND LOWER THE GODDAMN PRICE! $90?!

I don't need to justify it, it justifies itself. Maybe you see it as the Minecraft World Tour, but that's not true. Mojang should totally hold Minecon in the same country twice if it's the best choice based on all the other criteria they go by. "Giving everyone a chance" is a nice thought and all, but face the truth. Everyone wants a piece of Mojang, and the number of Minecraft fans living in whatever country you want next is dwarfed by the number of people who don't live there, yet still want to go to Minecon.

Also, I notice your Location isn't there, but I have a sneaky little feeling it's not the USA or Europe and the reason you're so angry about this is because you want your country to have a better chance.

I think the price should be higher. When tickets can go on sale and be sold out almost instantly, that's a very good reason to think they're charging a lot less than the tickets are really worth to people. Which, in turn, encourages the disgusting practice of ticket scalping.

Well, I half agree. I don't think it should be in the same place twice. The people who want it there again already had the chance to go to Minecon ( they already got the chance to get an EPIC cape!) I don't think Mojang will do it in America or Europe anytime soon. But also they might listen to suggestions ( just not America and Europe ones) because they want it where more people will go. So if lots of people suggest  they want... Canada for example that would mean lots of people who play Minecraft live in Canada. And if they need help choosing where to put it Minecraft fourms is really popular! I think they want to make it more accesible by putting it somewhere where most people live. Also they want to give others a chance to go. Im 50/50. Just no America or Europe probably.

You're just as selfish for saying "NO DON'T HAVE IT THERE AGAIN" as the people asking it to be near them.
If mojang wants to hold it in paris again, they will, if they want to hold it in america again, they will. If they want to hold it in timbuk-freaking-tu...they will.
They will put it wherever they godamn please. And it will most likely be somewhere with good transport links so it can be reached by as many fans as possible. They aren't going to pay the slightest consideration to the vocal minority on a forum.
