If there is one thing that never stops amazing me, it is the Minecraft community. I don't just mean all the incredible Youtubers, modders, mappers, server owners, animators, and artists - I mean the entire community, every single player.
The second day of Minecon was just as busy as the first; as soon as the doors opened, everything immediately went into high gear. Lots of amazing panels were packed to capacity, Jeb gave us a look into the future of Minecraft, and so much more. (If you'd like to see all the events directly, check out the link at the bottom!) In the end, what stuck with me was everyone who came, and how much they brought with them.
There was a moment when I stopped and looked around the convention hall, and realized just how diverse a community we are. People from all walks of life, and from every corner of the world, coming together to share in their joy of just one amazing game. In that moment, I didn't see people from just one country, or just one group, or anything like that - I saw Minecrafters. There were nearly eight thousand people, all in one place, sharing their favorite game, every single one of them an incredible person to meet, hang out with, and talk to about Minecraft.
It dawned on me that all of these people were just a tiny fraction of the entire Minecraft community, nearly 30 million strong, and every one of them just as awesome. I think it's safe to say that all of us are a part of the best game community in the world, and I wouldn't trade being a part of that for anything.
In the coming days, I will be sharing tons of video, pics, and content from amazing people I met at Minecon. In the meantime, you can check out the link below, and see many of the best events at Minecon, Day 2. Enjoy!
Hey, out of 7,500 people, that's not bad. Heck I'm surprised no one tackled a Mojangsta.... No one tackled a Mojangsta, right? Oh also, maybe we can KIT, Sach. Just followed you on Twitter as Auron Shale or something.
I remember when I went to the first Minecon there was a facebook page for it and some other sites with tons of photos from the event. Right the the minecon page on mojangs site has limited photos and few of the actual event floor. Is there a plan for a photo page or anywhere I can see a big collection of the photos from this years event. Any info or links would be much appreciated.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I had a blast running around in my costume I got to really enjoy it more on Day 2 cause I could actually get out of costume and not bump into people or knock people over from my giant wings Lol! (Also Hey CraftPunk still got that good music playing?)
Skydoesminecraft was there along with Antvenom, CaptinSparkles and iHasCupcakes (along with the host MinecraftChick) at 12:40 PM.
Now I wished I could come to Minecon to see the groups like Mindcrack and see Lazertester and the modders who make the magic happen. Sadly, the next Minecon I'll probably go to will be the one in 2019 or 2020.
