Microsoft turned minecraft into a better product. Which is Honestly good for the game. Minecraft is run now by MICROSOFT. Arguably the most powerful company in the world, people claim microsoft is ruinging minecraft... And thats it, Usually no reasons. Microsoft isnt breathing down mojangs neck to ruin the game. the devs are still the same, and doing there own thing, Now they just have a huge big brother too watch over them, Minecrafts in good hands. Look at Minecraft bedrock edition, (which doubled the minefraft playerbase from roughly 3m to 6m, Source: Gamerfacts article, and microsofts official statement... which may be biased so grain of salt.) It took minecraft from Okay so xbox here. Phones here. And pc there. (Which split up there recources making updates come slower) and brought it too the 21st century, now i can play with my freinds on the same game from my phone, pc, or xbox! (My ps4 however is throwing a hissy fit.) Microsft is only improving minecraft. Dont like bedrock? Well isnt it neat thanks to Microsoft litteraly gifting 2 BUILDINGS TO MOJANG. (Same sources) they were able to double the java edition team, along side adopt 4J studios? Yah. Microsofts totally ruinging mc.
I quited MC and MCPE cuz we can only join servers by signing in Xbox live after that we must change our privacy settings that i do not know how to change so i quited MC and MCPE

TheAtomicEmerald YT (7 days ago)
i really hate all the Paid Server hosting companies right now. i wish Mojang could've just simply told them to make the servers free or sue them. but Nope. there greedy selfishness personalities just didn't want to. there selling something in Minecraft for real money currency. which could be a violation of copyright laws.

So this is why minecraft is dying, I guess because it needs to login Xbox live to join servers, oh well notch sell minecraft to trash Microsoft/developer

Oh my God... Poor Notch... I didn't even know anything behind this story well I only know that Notch now lives in THE MOST EXPENSIVE HOUSE in whole Manhattan. But this is a huge offense to his whole character. In this World, since the dawn of social humanity, doing something right had only a slight chance it would pay out...

WARNING: LONG COMMENT! I remember 2013 Minecraft. With the old music. Me and my cousin would play together for hours on end I remember me and my cousin made a world called 'Cousin Land' My cousin and my 'Boyfriend' (We were both seven lol) Built me a love heart and a house made out of diamond blocks and emerald blocks and they wrote on a sign "We love you Amy" I still have that world. This makes me so emotional. I have this feeling of nostalgia. Like how Mario music is nostalgia to me. I grew up with Mario and the wii My brother was 19 when I was born {30 now and he is getting married soon :D} Anyways this is off-topic. I played on the xbox 360 I think my brother got it for me on my 7th birthday. The first update I remember coming out is the horse one. I was devastated when they changed the music (I think I cried a little) This is just so peaceful I can't describe it. My cousin goes to middle school (Grade 8 year 7) And I am homeschooled (Due to bullying) I was classed as weird at school. I thought of it as unique, but others said I was weird. Long story short my brother walked in on me crying, walked out and told mom, and now I am homeschooled! The cool thing is there are other bullied people too c: anyways my cousin is at school and she acts all grown up and I am still a kid (Like I am supposed to be) Like I will play on the park and everything but people still do tell me that I am mature for my age. Anyways to be honest my cousin isn't that nice to me. She isn't like mean mean but she calls me a Mong and a retard and stuff. Anyways It's fine cause I went through harder stuff at school. I still love Minecraft but It is just not the same. Thanks for reading xx

Minecraft is a game about survival, not flying with fireworks and having dragon heads on you’re wall. I will never forgive Microsoft for buying it for such an irresistible price.

The only bad thing about Microsoft is the microtransactions which arent mandatory obviously but theyre still kinds annoying. Still think minecraft is a great enjoyable game.

Captain's Vlog (26 days ago)
I see both sides here. Servers can't get money without selling something, but also, as a consumer, I'd like everything to be included in the cost of the game. It's a lose-lose situation.

TheDeadCraft (27 days ago)
I'm glad mine craft is dying so that Microsoft can die with it. At least notch isn't with his game to see it die. I'm glad Microsoft has ruined minecraft. This is a lesson to never sell your fames to Microsoft. *EPIC GAMES sells fortnite to Microsoft* Microsoft: New update!!! Add your Microsoft accounts! Pay to play though....

Minecraft is a good game it's just that all those kids and YouTubers ruined it, not that everyone is blamed, there were some good YouTubers like Dan and some others too, I like the game and at least it wasn't bought by EA, oh and a nother problem is the people these days, one tries to play and you got 3 to 7 people laughing at you but I don't mind that, thanks for your attention :v.

Why Microsoft... thats why there's minecoins
AmazedKevin618 (1 month ago)
I think they should co-op, but nope, it's sold and it's not coming back. Notch should have change the rules slowly over time, from not allowing servers to sell $100+ advantage stuff, then no permanent kits, then no $50+ advantage stuff, and eventually, slowly promoting suffixes and Nametags, etc, and banning stuff that buff players. He could even just ban stuff that give players an advantage, and hide under Dwayne Johnson for a bit. (get it) And Now the stuff that give players an advantage is banned anyways, so what the heck, people of the past?
