    @ Lehjr


    If mojang abandons the "java version" it will most certainly fall into other hands (which can be its own can of worms either way).

    @ Geneo


    I was certainly not convinced by a certain screed that brought me here, but both sides have strong cases. If they must absolutely have the mobile / console versions above the "java version" I would hope they keep it around for people to play and take the authentication servers out of the equation, handling player names, skins, and what not in a different way. Whether or not they update it after this point is entirely their case.


    Let's be honest. I never expected an official update to have more than vanity additions or nerfs anyway. I think the best thing we got recently was the observer which has been kind of useful alongside certain mods. Second fo llamas of course.

    I got a chuckle out of "greedy pc players".


    Simply, if they rename minecraft I wouldn't care one bit. I don't even look at the name in the first place so it's fine. I have a hard time believing this will effect the game in anyway. It's not going anywhere. As for minecoin, so what? People getting paid for their content? Ohnoes. The only thing is people who no longer make "java version" mods unless they get paid (psst you can already do that its called patreon). So no more mod updates? Okey dokey. Not a likely risk but it doesn't bother me either.


    If java version does "end" you can still play it with mods. So put on your burlap cloak and play with and improve what you will be left with. It doesn't have to be a bad time.

    The off topic section is tertiary so it shouldn't really be bothering you what so ever. Think of it as an outlet of small topics so they don't turn into digressions in the main topics.

    I guess eating biscuits would be my favorite thing aside from sleep. Since my day usually breaks up into job, minecraft, sleep, biscuits.

    posted a message on What keeps you playing minecraft?
    Mods. I can't rely on mojang to add anything good to the game because they are caught up in fixing thousands of bugs that are created every time a single new block comes out.

    Everyone, please, recognize what section this thread is in: Forum Discussion & Info.

    What began as a discussion about forum rules has devolved into an argument about how we should live our lives! Please, keep the topic on whether you think swearing is appropriate for this forum and this forum only. If you want to discuss life choices, use the Off-Topic section of the forum.

    Thank you!


    As far as I know the discussion is still about forum rules. We are discussing why a ban on swear words is completely stupid and they are using hard arguments and fallacies to defend themselves.

    posted a message on [Poll] Do mods improve minecraft?
    This is a research topic and should not be deleted.

    Do mods improve minecraft? In my opinion, yes they do. They will be what keeps minecraft alive long after the developers move on. They are the future of minecraft.

    I personally cannot wait for the mod API.

    But what do you think, minecraft forums?

    Medieval is vastly superior to modern war. It doesn't destroy the environment and people actually have to have this thing called skill.

    Quote from platypus1130

    I don't think players will be able to legitimately acquire spawners in Survival, because then they could get a bunch and make a super XP farm that would be game-breaking.


    You know what else would be game breaking? Modders having to add content to minecraft because the people at mojang take waaay too long to give like 3 things wrapped up in 9001 bugs.

    I don't see how mining spawners would ever be that game breaking.
