    Quote from TheCobalt»

    Here is my opinion. I have played this game for around five years, started around late alpha or early beta. The game was amazingly fun back then, it was mysterious and interesting. Any of you who have played it know that mobs where to be feared back then, regardless of armor.I actually tired Alpha. All I needed to do was keep some food handy, then spam click the monsters to death. Very scary I'm sure. Over time the game got more and more amazing, with sudden updates that made you go "Whoa there is a new update, what do we have in store"? I can't say that Beta was the absolute best because although some features were better back then (world generation), I had an amazing time through 1.2.5-1.6ish. They started to fix some of the horrible things that 1.8 changed, and added many needed features. Although snapshots ruined the fun of surprise updates, it did somewhat help with bug issues (I would still love surprise updates, it was enjoyable to wake up and see a new update)Mostly agree, except for terrain gen. I still don't see how people enjoyed that.. Around this peak time, servers were still fun, especially original Tekkit servers. 3 years ago my server was at peak activity, with large factions, conflict, and general fun reeking thought the small 30 person server. Then came the things that have killed Minecraft for me. The rise of minigame servers and network servers started to kill the small community servers that made up multiplayer. Then came the idea that if your over 10, your a loser and idiot for playing Minecraft. As the older, respectable, small, and original community diminished, the newer generations came in with there immaturity and short attention spans who supported the massive network servers.How is millions of people logging online killing a game? Sure, they may not be appreciating all it has to offer, but this is a sandbox game. Final blow was the breaks between updates. Updates are what kept the game alive, and without them, especially now, the game becomes stale and like a routine. I remember when modders complained they didn't have enough time between updates, *sigh* those days. Now they take over a year to make, 1.9 has taken forever and is being delayed till 2016! 1.8 came out in 2014! Has it occurred to you that perhaps this update took a while to make? Revamping a combat system isn't exactly easy.Anyways all of this has killed the fun of the game personally. For some this is the beginning, but as a older community member, I can say we are leaving it behind us. I now walk the empty streets of my server nearly alone as all my friends and community members left with the occasional person here and there... I am not asking for you to agree with me, but personally the game really died after 1.6.

    posted a message on Whats your stance on hacking?

    I'm assuming you mean people who use modded clients for multiplayer. I don't support "game changing" mods like speed, aimbots, kill aura, etc. I'm fine with cosmetic hacks though. But if someone is using modded cosmetics, he's likely using aimbots as well. On the whole, I don't support them.

    ", sans-serif">Press "Save changes" and go to your profile without entering any info again, that seems to work for me.


    I'm having a similar problem. What exactly do you mean by this? Click Save Changes, then click it again? Or click Save Changes, go to a different page, and come back? Either way, it doesn't work.

    "I'm gonna carry my egg around with me, sure I could die and lose it permanently, especially in multiplayer, but it makes me shiny!"


    No support.


    How is that a reason not to use the egg? It's the players own choice, it could just as easily be stolen if it's sitting in a vault.

    Support from me!

    But it barely freezes anything, absolutely useless and boring.

    You clearly haven't read the thread. This was designed for redstone applications.

    What? What is the point?


    Aside from freezing patches of water? Not much, I suppose, but it's certainly a nifty gadget.

    Hello fellow Minecraftians!


    My name is Mark Reins, I'm an avid gamer, Minecraft nerd and a lover of anything writing, marketing or YouTube. I'm the Founder and Chief Editor at a community-based server hosting review site (link is in the bio - I don't feel like being a Sp4m L0rd just yet). I've been playing Minecraft for probably 5 or 6 years now - I've ventured heavily into the technical-type modpacks, I LOVE redstone and thoroughly enjoy building systems that run themselves.


    I'm excited to be here! I've been a lurker for a long while, but this is the first time I've made a public appearance, and I can't wait to build awesome relationships with you all.


    Let me know if I can be of any assistance! See you in game.


    Ahh yes, the fellow Giver fan. Welcome!

    I'd also recommend not signing the bottom of your posts.



    I find it odd that people call out users for signing their posts, yet Sunperp, a Moderator, signs a lot of his posts and I've never seen anyone criticize him for it.

    That being said, Support. I love these small suggestions, they're just so dang awesome, and this one's pretty handy as well.
