Most Disliked Since 2015!
Have an issue with minecraft? Vent about it here.


All issues welcome (bad development, no demos, the cows look ugly) literally anything you want to complain about do it here! (instead of while playing on the server)

So I'll go first.

I really dislike how Notch prioritized game content as opposed to fixing the MANY bugs that minecraft has during development.

I didn't need magic introduced when I'm still recieving out of memory errors when placing dirt blocks...

I hate that fact that I have to read about how many other people gets diamonds and I can never find any.

I hate at the lack of spheres in the game...

I hate that a half step exists in the game and you can't put stuff directly on top of it.

I hate that I STILL can't make gravestones

I hate that sheeps don't grow their hair back

I hate it when I'm about to break an obsidian block and accidentally let go of my mouse a second too early.

Okay your turn.

One thing in mine craft that I'm not fond of is the steps you go through to install mods. Its not hard to install mods but I think Notch/Jeb and the Mojang team could implement something into to the game that lets you just drag something like a zip file into a mods folder.

Minecraft Wiki said:
Shearing a sheep will produce 2-4 Wool (1-3 as of Minecraft Weekly Build 11w49a). As of week 49 snapshot sheep can now regrow wool by eating grass turning the grass block into a dirt block.
My rant? lack of multiplayer server support for programmers/server admin. I mean seriously, we have to rely on a 3rd party (bukkit) to even manage a basic server.

My rant? The lack of plot. Okay, so we have some potions, some enchantments, two different dimensions, but WHY? Why are there creatures from a mysterious void of no light in the real world, and why do they hate me so? Why do they resent pumpkins? Why are there villages that the villagers IGNORE me?

Why am I alone in a planet made of blocks? Why do green phallic creatures charge me and explode? Why are there flying jellyfish that spit fire?

Why does ANY of this make sense!?

Also, why doesn't Notch Mojang/Jeb introduce more diverse content? I'd like to see stuff be possible that isn't just fantasy/medieval.

It's a sandbox game, and I wish they would realize that some people prefer a bit more modernism (Definitely not cars or planes, but technology outside of that).

i hate the fact that I'm running out of ideas, most worlds bore me, that MC doesn't have much difference between players (honestly the wealthy man wins), i wish you could collect ice, i also wish there was slight technology rather then this weird magic powder that is just electric because it can, i wish that there where more unique and dangers mobs, i can't really say more then that.

One of the "original PvP terrorisers"
I dislike:
Enchantments and Magic
It now has a story goal and an ending
You can't do two player without first setting up a server. I want a LAN sort of thing.
Brainless NPCs. Either none or helpful, fun to interact with ones.
Lack of war machines and proper mob defenses.
Mobs can't attack fortresses. I love making fortresses but only if the mobs are going to attack them.
Those weird doors that are placed open rather then shut.
Far too time consuming walking and mining etc.
No cats.
Wolves.
Paintings take forever to become the one you want even though it does the one you hate the most a dozen times in a row.
Strongholds aren't strongholds, they are ruins and should be named accordingly.
And more......

So, you dislike Minecraft as a whole?

I actually agree with NZ on this one for once D:
Everything that was added in 1.0 I dislike.
I also hate that almost everything notch added lately makes multiplayer more difficult. NPCs, sure, be careful though, anyone can kill them. Oh, the end? well you need to find a stronghold first, good luck with that on a big server. XP farms lag the server, and lets face it people hate grinding for XP, great idea notch, add the worst part of every MMO out there! Enchantments are silly as there should be a risk involved, i.e.e enchantment totally ruins sword like in roguelikes. I also hate that the end and nether are so boring, fine there are new (slightly more annoying) mobs, but give me a load more ores, make me mine in these places.

I just ignore all of that stuff. I don't like it either.

if people have a problem with unattractive pc's might i suggest the Tale of Kingdoms mod? the pc's at least talk to you when you right click them. you can also buy items instead of having to go out and collect everything, so having to mine for 32 diamonds to get a full set, pick, and sword can be bought easily with about 21k of gold, with are dropped by mobs or you can sell items to the blacksmith. (BTW bricks sell for 800 gold a piece). and all you need is mod loader and then the tale of kingdoms mod.

It also adds the option to make your kingdom once you complete this contract thats basically go out and kill mobs, rescue people, and the mobs they add in are hard to kill.

What i hate about it is, for your city it will take a really long time to build if you don't use TMI to get the logs and cobblestone
the new mobs teleport and pretty much kill you if you don't have full diamond armor
the farmer only gives you one bread for each session you do
when you fix the guild or make your town all the guild NPC's disappear until you save and quit.

this doesn't have to do with the mod but i also hate the fact that mobs can't really hurt you in full diamond armor.

(sorry if this seems off topic)

I'm assuming you're referring to Ghasts when you talk of jellyfish, right? That's wrong! D:
They are giant flying tofu cubes with short tentacle things underneath. :D
When you think of it that way, it makes the game a little more interesting.

I definitely agree with the add-on of some modernism and technology. <3

I'm out, come find me elsewhere.
1. The fact that we are on official release and I still get memory leaks.
2. True creative mode SHOULD allow us to make a map have customizable npc shops, be able to set paths and tasks for npc, and then allow us to save it in survival format so that we can share them as adventuring/story maps.
3. Why can we still not write books? Seriously, it's a fracking pop-up screen that looks like a book, cant imagine its that hard to implement.
4. Redstone is crap. We need to have two seperate kind of wires (blue and red maybe?) that way you can lay circuits directly next to or on top of each other.
5. Water and lava are broken. The physics are horrible. Install the Finite Liquid Mod, and then make a new map. Thats the way water ought to act in minecraft.
6. NPC Towns ought to be able to sell you things, or building in proximity to one keeps monsters away, etc etc, it has potential.
7. I would really like to see some kind of "mount"(for lack of better word) like a horse or something that allows you to travel faster, maybe you would have to feed it wheat or something to keep it going.
8. Why has aether not been incorporated into the actual game? It's amazing, it adds more depth than nether ever did.
