(Do take note right now, this is my first attempt at writing a blog, and I am open to constructive criticism. All opinions are mine, I do not mean to shove anything down your throat.)

Hello, I am IAMAPENGUIN, an avid Minecraft fan. I have been playing since about halfway through the Alpha stage of Minecraft. Here I am, almost a year later, anticipating version 1.8 of the Beta. Full release is approaching, and as soon as you know it, our beloved Minecraft will become the mainstream.

But today is today, and we must make the most of it.

But that's not what this article is about.
I am questioning the reasoning behind the confirmed mob, "Enderman". An obvious reference to a creepypasta (Slenderman), this mob is said to take blocks away from your house, and do something similar. Also, you can not look at the being directly (pointer over the mob), as it will become angry, teleport quickly to you, and begin its assault. Sure, sounds a little bit scary and fun, but this mob is taking away more then it should. For one, you cant help but where your blocks go to and are used for. Also, this is a big no-no for newer players. If they don't know about the ability to set the difficulty, what happens? Their house gets taken away, and thus, they toss the game (or not play it), and there goes someone who may have bought the full game. Also, hard work is removed into oblivion, as you may never see it again. So my question is, why add a silly mob that does nothing but do stupid things like this that is based off a frigging creepypasta.

Disclaimer: These statements may be proved wrong as of the 1.8 updates for various reasons, such as Endermen being on the Hard difficulty level only.

Peace!

1 i think they should be called farlanders because if you walk really far on every world (im talking like really far) you come to a place were it is all streached, sort of. (look it up if you dont know) and i would think that they are the kind of things that would come from there. 2 Dose anyone know what it will drop? the block that it is holding, or something diffrent... or better both! 3 this dose not matter for new players because it is more of a suprise if they house parts are missing also the enderman spawns in packs of about 1-5 (im gessing from the piture) and i think they can only hold one block. 4 when has minecraft been soft on new players (:P) you start with nothing. 5 it IS notches game, he can choose where he takes it. you may not like it but other people may.

Thank you for reading my long comment! :P

i agree with you. "Endermen" should only be on for people who like stuff like that. i also think the same thing with the food bar where you frequently have to eat. sure it makes it more realistic but it just adds another thing to worry about.

It does more than stupid things, it gives a fear factor to Minecraft. I honestly wasn't scared of a creeper blowing up my house at all, but Enderman disecting it and killing me scares me. It's not a silly mob, this is going to be my favorite mob in minecraft being a Marble Hornets fanatic.

i thought it was as soon as you put your cursor on them, they teleport to you and your dead. They have to make a way to defend yourself. like maybe they have one weakness that is like kryptonite to them.

well you forgot the fact that theyre actually part slenderman & part Weeping Angel (doctor who). slenderman figure, but weeping angel personality. look at em, dont blink or turn away. if you do, THEN they get angry and teleport and run really fast to attack you. Otherwise good blog type thing. :P
