I woulnd't mind creepers if they didn't spawn INSIDE my house.? I have a light level of 9 at the darkest spot in the house, yet there he is in the basement exploding his load right on top of my chest-o-goodies.
This is not an isolate event. In my creative world where I play around with houses, every time it rains, multiple creepers instantly spawn, some of them inside the lit houses. Fortunately it's creative so they don't explode, but still they should not be there.
"everyone's favorite green monster"? Who is this "everyone"? Frankly, I wish they either remove them from the game entirely or give us the option to disable them. I could happily play Minecraft for many more years without ever seeing another creeper again.
get a mod to remove creepers
also i dont think creepers will be removed they are kinda the face of minecraft now.
