Okay, so I decided to humor you and a couple people on Discord and did Froggy Keep, Foundry, the Nether, Block World, and the Tower in 1.8.9 as instructed with normal gear (probably weaker than normal, actually) and made it through all of the five areas without dying. I avoided the mobs as instructed and made it all the way up the tower without once switching it to peaceful.
My rating stays the same. It's still mob spam with the added carpel tunnel from spam clicking mobs but with the added effect of just standing around while food ever so slowly heals you. The mob is not hard. Adding more and more mobs is a lazy way to up difficulty. All it does it grind everything to a halt and encourage bridging over everything since you can't make it through there unless you abuse mob despawning mechanics.

Well, the forums aren't dying, and neither is my map series on Java.
