Okay, this may sound weird, but… Think this way- take 1.7 Beta, add all the features until now, except the RPG elements. I feel like this is what i get when i play 1.9. Remember the basic combat strategy? No sprinting? Thanks to the whole attack cooldown thing, plus shields, it gives you no incentive to look the other way and sprint. Get a skelly shooting at you? You’ll have to face him to block and attack, in this pattern- Forward, attack, backwards, block, rinse and repeat. This is EXACTLY how you would have played beta minecraft, without the blocking. Also, then there’s the world generation. Anyone remember 1.7.3, where the world generation was fun, wacky, and there were tons of mountains? This update in a nutshell. The world gen was changed again, and i love it. Then the elytra, the soon-to-come launcher, and all that stuff. Anyone agree with me?
