    I find it rather interesting that all the people who want this thread to end are those who like the combat updates.

    True, but I do think this thread has served (and is serving) its purpose namely that we now know what others think about 1.9 combat. Debates like this are good and even if your views don't change in the least it's good to see what other peoples arguments are and the reasoning behind them.

    I absolutely DO NOT like the 1.9 combat style. As some people have already stated, it is harder especially when fighting mobs like creepers in small spaces. I also don't see why axes should all-of-a-sudden have tons of attack damage, however slow they may be. I also don't like the absence of blocking, suppose you don't have a shield? What then? If the purpose of this update was to make combat more realistic then why take out blocking? Way back in 1.8 it was possible to run up to a creeper and kill it with three quick hits from an iron sword, now it is necessary to hi the creeper, run back, hit it again and repeat, sometimes hitting it more than three times. Or take peaceful mod as an example, imagine you're in a forest and you need some food, so you go toward the herd of pigs nearby, you hit one and wait for your sword to charge up, in the meantime the pig in question, runs under a tree with only one block of clearance between it and the ground, now you have spend ages breaking the leaves and hit the pig again provided it hasn't come out from under the tree and run off somewhere else. In an older version, say 1.7 all you would have to do is hit the pig a couple of time and there you go.


    Need I say more...
