You're out hunting for Endermen, hoping to make it to the End in your hardcore world. Zombies are attacking you, and they've gotten you down to 6 hearts. Jumping off a small cliff to avoid them, you lose another heart to fall damage. There's a bright green, glowing creeper off in the distance, but Minecraft's got plenty of bugs, and it's probably too far to see you anyway, so you ignore it. It notices you. You start sprinting to your door, hoping to make it to your safe room before it explodes.
It explodes, with the force of five charged creepers. You're down to half a heart, but there's nothing you can do to get any health back. The explosion's destroyed all of your food chests, blown away your farms. Your potion room no longer has a floor, and the creeper uncovered a ravine under your house. You build a bridge to get across it, but you forget to hold down shift and you fall to your doom.
You cannot respawn in hardcore mode!
What I'm saying is that your nuclear creepers are OP. If there absolutely must be a giant explosion (apart from the Wither's explosion when it reaches full health) it should be a new, crafted, expensive explosive.
I had fun reading that. BTW, No support.
