Because he's one of the few betas not bending over for smug alpha douches.
Yeaah, paid more and will probably pay more in the future. Then again, the extra cost could've been covering the full game that we'll get.
We paid more than alpha buyers while the game was still unfinished (and could still easily be left that way), still struggle through bugs like the alpha buyers and yet we pay more for DLC is out? Doesn't seem fair. Don't bring up the "life isn't fair, dealwithit.jpg" argument because major advances in history were the product of someone thinking "**** it, this isn't fair. I'm changing it"
Well maybe you could ask him to revoke those privileges, then? Seeing as it's creating a pointless rift within the community, sparking flame wars, etc. And you don't really even want the special status, right? Riiiight?
Yeah, thought so.
Go away. You're acting like a four-year-old.
That rift? Those flame wars? You're talking about the ones that you started, right?
I can't speak for the other Alpha buyers when I say this, but if I were in your position I would just shut the **** up and continue to enjoy the game.
Why can't this thread just die? Jeez. Beta players who ***** about this all have some sort of persecution complex (this would also explain why they think Notch/alpha buyers believe themselves to better, etc), and without professional help won't ever get over it. There is absolutely no point in arguing.
i bought this game in beta and if the dlc includes unicorns farting out rainbows or mo creatures and more creeps and weirdos implemented ingame then i will get it but i probably will not buys the dlc because quite frankly i dont caree for it

I doubt it is oing to be expensive. I bet it's going to be just pocket change, anyways, maybe $5? You can still play Beta mode you just can't play adventure without the pocket change. A lot of other games are doing this, too. Just think of it as a sequel.
Wow, 19 pages of this? I read through the first page of posts and thought I might be getting close...
I've got a question - what the hell is DLC?
Given what I read on the first page, I have this to say: I started playing the game in Beta 1.5. If earlier players are getting something for free that future players are not, good for them. Paying a few dollars for something I play so much wouldn't bug me. However, if you think you're special and DESERVE something for free because "you were there first", then you need to be punched in the face. There will ALWAYS be those people, wherever you go... irl or online - the world runs on it.
I would've if I'd known about it. I didn't. How's that fair?
Answer: It isn't, and the only reason Alpha buyers are able to be so smug about it is because they're getting something other's aren't. They're quite literally Minecraft's nobility, enjoying elevated status and privileges they did nothing to earn, and they're certainly acting like nobility. If the roles were reversed, they wouldn't be whining any less. If they had their status stripped now, they'd whine way more than we betas ever have.
Notch had no idea how large Minecraft would become when he first started it. He just pretty much said one time buy, you get it all. Once the real player-base came out he jumped on the opportunity. It's not wrong of him at all. It's his game, he can do as he wishes with it. If you don't like it, quit. It is not going to suddenly alter all of Minecraft.
Farkraj, you are king among trolls! Congrats, this is your new elevated status.
Let's think of it this way. If Notch didn't have his original customers/supporters, the game wouldn't have gotten off the ground. Likewise, if he didn't have his FUTURE customers/supporters, game development would have eventually halted. Sounds to me like the last purchaser is just as important as the first.
Just like your usual people. Acting like they're better than others cause they bought the game earlier. Reminds me of World of Warcraft when people would **** on others just cause the one person's guild could kill a raid boss that another person's guild was not able to.
You don't deserve any sort of special treatment - if anything we should all be treated fairly.
Either make us all pay for DLC's, or make us pay extra.
Who is acting like they are better for buying the game earlier, here? The most people have done was point out that they got the benefit because buying earlier supported Notch when he was still a small-time developer, no one said they were BETTER for it. They were just explaining why NOTCH gave them that benefit.
Really, it seems to me like you are projecting your biases on others. You EXPECT alpha buyers to act that way, so you imagine that they ARE acting that way.
I bought the game before Alpha. So Alpha Buyers if u think you are nobles - STFU.
Poor Beta Buyers, you are worse than us, you are mass of newcomers and players who know minecraft because its popular. IMO you should pay for every update notch release, i hope he will think about it soon.
Too all players who bought minecraft before Alpha!
Remember who you are!
Remember that you are nobles of this community!
Remember the Beta Buyers are just peasants.
Have respect to Alpha Buyers, they ale close to us.
No. Just no. Please. Now get the hell out of here. Beta players aren't all 'bad,' many good ones started in Beta.
But, how do you define if a Minecraft player is good?
I also don't agree with making Beta buyers pay for updates, and I am an Alpha buyer.
And really, Notch should only make Beta pay more if he feels he needs even more money. Hes already set, finacially for life. At this point, it is somewhat greedy to still try to make more money off of people who have already given you more than $20.
