Then why have them at all?
So that you have a wide selection of places you want to settle in.
Look at my source for Tahg. It's the same thing, just less diplomatic.
It's okay, the Defenders have always been white knighting this game. It's okay, I know you love the game so I'll let you be.
Do you not know how to read between the lines? When someone says the exact sames line over and over, they are trying to be diplomatic. He quit a "golden" job to become unemployed and return to Bukkit modding. The only time people do that is when they cant take something at their current job.
EvilSeph and one other dev quit because they couldnt stand the lackluster and lazy work ethic.

Wait, are you saying that Jens is the first person to have said that? Or that he somehow expressed that simple and true, but tautological, statement better than millions of others before him?

The main issue is that people expect them to just drop any updates and work only on the Plugin API until it is done. it is not going to happen, and to expect it to is both unreasonable and flawed in logic. What do you people think Grum and EvilSeph have been doing? Sitting there looking at computer screens all day? Why do you guys thing Searge was hired? Just because they aren't giving us news doesn't mean it isn't being made. Have you ever thought that the reason they aren't giving us news is precisely because of the way this community is?

Nobody except shallow minded noobs complained about enchanting.
Quote from toddh39
Think it is a bunch of crap.... Mojang needs to fix the load errors and all the lag...instead of breaking the game for thousand of fans....
Quote from yungskittlez
Also, I feel that this method of enchantment encourages book enchants. How often does anyone here spend enchanting a stack of books? (any level of XP used) I have done it a few times as of current. Enchanting 30 level 1 books and combining them into something and then in turn combing that book with an enchantable item is quite tedious. (once I enchant 30 level 1 books, it may take another 30 to combine books and then combine that with the item you want enchanted.) Honestly how often is the book system used? I rarely use it to be honest.

Ah, I see. That ol' argument...
Well, you should take it to Mojang, Scum. Not to us. You have to tell them that you don't feel the need for them to work on balancing the game. I'm pretty sure you'll become very popular.
Quote from PopuliMinistrum
That is like saying I am gonna make a game where the strongest weapon costs 1 gold, and every enemy you kill gives 5. Then I just say "If you guys don't like that, then don't buy it!". It is always the job of the game developer to fix balancing issues. Never has it been, nor will it be, the job of the players.

Yes, because quick examples should be well written with 50+ words about how one has to explore to find a brewing stand, (For example ^^)
1. Ignoring problems.
3.I got minecraft for a survival, not for buidling stuff because i know i suck at it.
4. Did. Because i was done with ''survival' after playing for 3 hours on my world.
5. Well, i tried for 365 x2 days. still doing today. just gets boring without a challenge.
If i find the game EASY, then im a bad player, I am meh in redstone, i can make good piston doors and traps to stop zombies from breaking a door but thats useless because iron doors.
About the lose armor and use shovel, ignoring problems.
@debugman18 i read all of your post but my quote system went jack on me and after 10 minutes of trying i gave up. So here is my response:
Balance is tricky, its hard to fight the middleGround, just as you said on a big game, i just think the current difficulty is like this:
Hell difficulty (aka btw) +5
What i want: 0
Sadly i gotta update because mods update and so on.
Did i scapegoat somewhere? Pardon me if i did then. Wasn't my intension.
Well, im trying to expand SSP, Making death a thread again and so on. New players would basicly deal with it if they didn't play mc before. (Atleast that what i would do) And (Word for new players who started playing but are still pretty bad at the game) Would require some thinking and a change of tactic. I see nothing wrong in that. same happened to me in same games.
Well. Difficulty modes, i just wish (this is a stupid idea) That difficulty modes actually did some more stuff. like adding extra hazards, survivalism and so on. instead of plain buffing monsters.
Well, im off sleeping now. And im gonna focus on my java skills again. So maybe one day i can make minecraft the sandbox/survival game i can make it be ( I do gotta wait for a stable moddable version like 1.7 or 1.8, because modding 1.6 would be useless now.)
Good night everyone
