My assumption after this very lame 'major' update is that 4J is losing the contract for Xbox development.
It was a huge accomplishment last year to bring the console nearly, and momentarily, even with PC last year. This year's work seems to have focused on increasing current revenue with mini games and packs, but not on keeping up with the PC version.
Whatever the reason for falling further behind, this release was a huge disappointment to me.
I hope they can at least fix the stupid teeny weeny terrain! How can fossils generate in the swamps when they are now only 10 blocks wide? I hope they can add the option to generate terrain size like pc, because on xbox one/ps4, this is not cutting it! It plain sucks!
I need to get the famous youtubers to complain, maybe then they'll listen. This crappy customer service is one reason why I went pc and will never look back. You know what really makes no sense, when you try to tell a company about their bugs and then they BLOCK you for it. That's some terrible customer service!
The catering to the popular crowd is rather annoying. There are way more of us than there are of them and we get ignored and blocked. Without us, you wouldn't be making any money at all.
I hope Microsoft/mojang take the xbox one version away at least from these guys. They have messed it up enough. And hey, if you don't like someone complaining about YOUR sucky customer service, then why don't you go ahead and censor and ban me on here too!
I opened up a bug report on mojang about the crappy terrain, which moved up into #2 most popular issues, this was a YEAR ago, and guess what? The bug is still sitting open!
Joecraft 80, it's worth noting how this was supposed to be looked into. Granted, we just barely got a bit taller mountains. It's that pre-gen fantasy I tell you. I think we all know by now, if you wanna play Minecraft just stick to pre-gen! The wonders of pitching to KIDS!!
Good, I hope 4j looses their contract and Mojang themselves take over console edition as well, 4j are as pretentious as M$ and dare I say 343. I used to ask completely legitimate questions to 4j on their twitter without being demanding or rude, here are a few examples:
- "Will it be possible to get craftable mob spawners on MC console edition in a future update?"
- "Will we see a Star Wars Mashup Pack at some point?"
- "Will we ever get extreme terrain generation for MC Console?"
Now keep in mind I'd only ask a question once about every month and a half or so, and they just up and banned me for no reason. I know they've done this to other people too, 4j no longer cares for the community that got them to where they are today and no longer deserve to work on a game with so much potential just to squander it.
Yes, they banned me too just for asking questions. I was never rude or abrasive towards them either. It really leaves you walking away with resentment. But, I will say this 4jsteve on here has always been polite towards me and answered my questions through pm's on here so I thank him for doing that when he did not have to.
I am sure they get many tweets but why block people if they ask about something? I know someone else asked about tnt cannons distance being bugged or something like that a ways back and they also got banned.
Bottom line is, many bugs have gone ignored and the console ports well, they are ok but leave a lot to be desired. I just don't see how hard it is to add the pc generation code, add the option to the menu to generate pc terrain if you wish and be done with it. Some of the long standing bugs shouldn't still be here. Why do they get ignored?
Read many of my previous topics and comments to get my full take, but to be brief, I do believe Mojang will take at least the X1 version back. Cross play on X1 just won't work with 4j's version of the games code, yet Mojang promised that and Realms (twice) by early next year.
And the upcoming update was announced by Mojang, not 4j. I don't believe that's ever happened before.
I've repeatedly asked for official response, even if it's to say I'm wrong, which has gone ignored. Which just makes me feel I'm right.
