Mojang literally said "**** you, single player lovers. We're going to deliberately make your experience worse. Why? Because we're dicks. Basically we're pissed off that multiplayer hasn't been getting the attention we think it deserves, so we're going to screw over the people who play single player. If multiplayer players can't have a better game, then no one should. Again, we're dicks. What's that about Notch? No, he can't help you. Notch has moved on to his next project and handed this one over to Team ****. You fell in lava? Good, because we hate you, paying customer."
