Hey, I play minecraft. I'm not all crazy about, I'm not a 'hater', I just play minecraft for fun. Spend my free time playing with my friends on Minecraft Classic. Maybe when I get older and get some money I'll buy premium, but for now, when I can't afford to pay for it (I'm 14 years old..) I'll stick to Minecraft Classic. I'm glad I got WoM just in time because I would've been clueless on what to do when I saw that the Minecraft Classic server list was gone from the main page. I would've used common sense and remembered that the URL for classic is www.minecraft.net/classic/list but at first like all new players I probably would've been baffled on what to do. I played Minecraft during beta (I remember it was cheaper than what it is now) and Minecraft Classic was actually there, where you can go and play on it to try out the game and have fun. Minecraft Classic is a perfect way to get new players to come and see what Minecraft is like, then buy it and have fun! On the Minecraft Classic server I go on, they have their Premium ip up on the server and they got new players to play premium all the time. So instead of enforcing Minecraft Classic and see that it actually helps get new buyers, you try to take it away. I bet you guys didn't anticipate the servers to crack the email code to allow new players to play on Classic. Well the server I go on did, and that got us a ton of new guests and our server still thrives. I don't think the petitions on all the websites will change your minds, and I don't think my small topic on a large forum page won't do much, but all I ask is think about it. Think about what I said, how it's been benefiting premium. As I built up the ranks on Minecraft Classic and finally reached staff, I really learned something about respect and leadership. One day when I get premium, I can hope to get staff on a premium server and benefit premium as well. But if Minecraft Classic goes, along with all my memories and online friends, then I go. You'll lose a lot more than you think.
Thanks for reading and I hope you at least take what I've said into consideration!
