I don't understand this accusation. This thread has been shockingly troll defecient. A troll would post: "YOU ARE NOT PREPARED" and leave it at that. Read the forum rules and note that the mods don't even approve of accusing another person of being a troll... you troll.

You're acting like the only part of the game worth anything is the multiplayer aspect. Single Player Survival is a very polished part of Minecraft, and it going into Beta seems perfect to me.
You, sir, make an excellent point. Think about all the great games that are released (as finished products) and the multiplayer is glitch-tastic. Minecraft isn't an MMO. SMP is an additional feature, not the main game. I'm sure some people will say that they buy games (for example an FPS game like Black Ops) just for the online play but if they never play the single player they're basically ignoring 80%+ of the game itself. Minecraft is different, in that there isn't a story mode or levels to complete, but the same is generally true. "Survival Mode" will always be less survival-esque with multiple players if there is any cooperation between them at all.
I see what you guys mean there but multiplayer is the big thing nowadays. If you look at the whole picture multiplayer accounts for a much larger percentage overall. If SMP wasnt here, IMO, it wouldnt be nearly as successful as it is right now.
minecraft not an MMO? have you not been on many servers? the only thing holding this game back from being a true MMO is the server performance issues and/or lack of a giant dedicated server clusters that are able to hold 1000 clients. IMHO it has chance at being a great MMO due to the fact at how customizable it is ATM.
so from notch's standpoint...who cares if people ignore 80% of black ops? both types of people paid ~$60 for it right? who is more likely going to get expansions and bonus content?
I agree that Minecraft has potential to be very MMO-esque and I sincerely hope Notch continues development in that direction (minus hosting public servers and charging monthly access fees). But it is not currently, and might never be, worthy of the MMO genre label. I don't think Notch has said anything remotely close to this subject so no one really knows. But let's take another game, which is very MMO-esque as an example. Neverwinter Nights is D&D RPG for PC and it's users enjoy flexible online play as an additional feature to the solo game. The online play offers world building options and is, to this day, still enjoyed by many die hard fans of the series; many of whom play online campaigns. However, Neverwinter Nights is not classified as an MMORPG. Even if Minecraft was updated ad infinitum, to the point where it is as complicated or more complicated than Neverwinter Nights, it will still not be re-classified as an MMO. Die-hard fans like myself (I admin an SMP server) will play it as obsessively as an MMO but that does not make it so.
Herp derp, I promise a lot of stuff and deliver only few things, from which only even less work correctly.
I say modding is bad and do all I can to **** up the modder's work with every update.
I think 6 million bucks are not enough, so I am raising the price to 15$ AND will demand even more money in the future.
herpa derpa I can't deal with money
protip: 6 million bucks are enough to live from interest alone, giving you several thousand dollars per month.
Lets just face it, he is a lousy coder with a MASSIVE ego. Feels like a hero working soooo hard on that serverside inventory; I bet 6 million imaginary bucks that any skilled coder from this community could get this working in ten minutes if he had access to the code. You dont need a hotel room for every employee or a fresh new office or spend hundrets of thousands of bucks just to get a f*ing java game running.
lol i somewhat felt this way about the push to beta but didnt want to be the first to say it. $6 million is not necessarily that much money unless you live somewhere where the economy is that good or if u plan on living in an apartment and drive a used car where i live.
