Lately, we have seen a large amount of anger from the community for what has been added/changed in minecraft. This game that has gathered all of us together has become the center of many flame wars due to the adventure update. For those that don't remember, 1.7 was going to be the full adventure update, but you guys were too annoyed that it would be a long wait for a single update, no matter how major it would be. Had we not done so, we would have a "better" game at the moment. What I'm saying is this: WE ruined the adventure update by demanding so much out of these coders, making them work quicker and less efficiently. It is our fault that minecraft has "gone to shit", not Notch, nor Jens, nor Aron, nor Jon. I believe that those four can go and do whatever they want to their game without putting the community into consideration, as quoted by one of the employees of mojang:
Mojangsta in the minecraft documentary said:
This means that they want to shape games to their likings, why stop them? What would their motivation be to make a game if they personally didn't like what was in it? I'll tell you: nothing.
As far as I'm concerned, the minecraft programmers should not listen to us until we learn to PULL OUR HEADS OUT OF OUR ASSES and learn that you shouldn't bite the hand that feeds you. By which I mean, if you fuck with the programmers and tell them what to do all the time, they WILL decide that enough is enough and push back.
If we didn't bug them all the time, the adventure update would have been infinitely better. Yes, that means 1.7 would probably have been released in October or at minecon, but it would be more polished and filled with content, instead of three rushed updates. I would gladly wait even a YEAR for an update if that meant mojang would work at their own pace and/or produce something spectacular.
Yes, I would choose to wait a year without updates if that meant that Notch, Jens, Aron and Jon were able to go at a reasonable pace to even make an update WITHOUT spectacular features.
Let me explain the poll for you guys just so you don't accidentally make the wrong vote.
YES: You agree that by demanding so much from mojang, they won't be able to your expectations. You also agree that the demand for them to code quicker will result in them needing to rush and skip out on some important features, bug testing and feedback from the community before removing the features crashes everyone's saves.
NO: You agree that mojang is at fault for not making the game to your liking, and/or you wish they would finish the updates faster, regardless of what they need to skip out on.
EDIT: Wow, 60 votes for 'Yes'! That's heartwarming, knowing that I am not alone!
