Who wants to mess around wasting durability off their flint and steeligniting creepers when you just walk up and explode it? I mean by the time you get into the reach distance they are already exploding automatically! I see it as a useless feature and should be removed. Although I couldnt care less because i would never use it in my life.
If you get into reach distance, but walk back they don't explode. But if you get into reach distance and light them then walk back they explode.
They don't automatically explode in reach distance, plus they're just basically walking TNT so it would be logical that you can light them up with the same tool to light up TNT.
Sorry I havent been posting. Internets REEEEEEEEAAAAAAAALYLY Sloppy. I guess it is a good thing for mining. But if you were deep it might blow up diamonds or iron or something like that because some of the blocks they blow up dont drop. Same with TNT I guess.The_BritishCrafter because I was just expressing its uselessness.

Does anybody See my logic? Certainly not. Well, I see it, it's just stupid as heck incorrect.
My main argument is in bold.
Also, notice that the statement in red completely contradicts the statement in green.
EDIT: To the below post, they are working on that stuff. It was probably very simple for them to quickly code something else to ignite creepers while doing so.
I am so mad at the Sky fanboys who are like "ADD BUUUDDDER TWO MINCRFT CUZ BURDR Z SP ASWUM ND STUFZ BUDDERBUDDERBUDDER :D:D:D:D" that I am dedicating my signature to stopping them. I had gone into more depth, but the stupid signature limit stopped me. Oh well.
The thing that annoys me is that they should be working on something else, like redstone or minecarts and boats. No pressure on them, though.
They are working on redstone and minecarts. I'm not sure on boats though, you would have to look at the official MCPE Updates thread in the MCPE Updates section. (Look at the first post in the thread, not the last page.)
As for the feature, Minecraft139 already made a pretty valid point. Why bother to remove a feature you won't use, when others will? The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few (in this case). Besides, the feature is to make creepers easier to kill, and I'm sure they mean when it's a fair distance away. If it moves towards you, you can always move backwards and keep hitting it with the flint n' steel until it dies. Actually, I've yet to use the feature myself, though I might soon.
TO: GMO27 I guess you are right, I have heard that they are working on that stuff. Its just that i never use it, and I just wanted to see if anybody else thought of it the same way I do. looks like not many people do, but dont worry. Im not the type of guy that takes these posts the wrong way.
