When you think about, how much has Minecraft changed? It went from little things like wolfs to bigger things like hunger bar and enchanting. People from Alpha and early Beta can understand. People from Beta 1.8.1 onward wouldn't see to understand as much. But really. It went from Classic, the non-stop building and dying, to survival with plugins and things like Hardcore mode. Survival was always the way to go. Then Creative was released. The vanilla community went down dramatically. Although Creative seems like a great way to express creativity, I really think it separated the Minecraft community. Everyone wanted to switch to Creative for non-stop building. Survival people stayed strong because Creative got boring eventually. What side or you on today? Creative or survival? In my own opinion, I am a Survivor. To me, creative grows boring without the action of hunger, fighting players and monsters, and much more. Survival is just fun to me. I have to go into the wild, hide from others, create a temporary/permanent base to live in. It just seems intense after a while. And creative, I mean, it's fun to do every once in a while to get some creativity out there. But still, what happened to Minecraft as we know it? Will the community be broken up during each Minecraft update? Or do you think after all of the updates, our community is still intact and ready for anything? Well....opinions?

I have been a Minecrafter for quite long, started in the early alpha stages. Really miss the old world generator, you could choose what world you wanted. Like "small-medium-large" "snow-sand-hell-forest", or just the normal one, where they are all mixed together.. Kind of miss it, it was so fun! I remember when beta came out, and when i discovered texturepacks, and when i first discovered the power of redstone! Haha, happy days! :)

I think I prefer Survival :) Creative is cool for getting ideas done, but survival takes talent.
Wow. A lot of you started out early! :D

I prefer both. Say i make a world. Well since I am a modder I just go and get too many items mod. Then i build my home in creative mode. Building should reach to the ends of your imagination. Then once done i switch into survival and get my supplies. Playing in survival is fun, building should be done in creative in my opinion.

I'm not a classic Minecrafter, I only started with 1.5, but I have seen the game changing. You are totally right about the creative mode, because survival is much more fun. A diamond for U :)

I've been a blockhead ever since 1.4. 1.7 was my favorite. 1.8 and onward was never the same. I still like it, but just much less.

I'm on the side of Survival-Creative - aka I play both, have fun on both, and I don't think Notch is ruining Minecraft.

I started in the days of 1.2... I remember getting the 1.3 update, trying to sleep during day, ah... the good old days. And then those retarted noisy wolves started running everywhere and teleport-attacking your friends who accidently hit them...powered and detector rails were pretty good... but did Notch HAVE to add rain? And snow... seriously? 1.7 came, the golden days of pistons and shears.... picking up TnT... And then 1.8 came upon us.

I'm from alpha 1.2.0 Halloween update I still play survival alot but creative is only when I do some huge projects like on a superflat map I join villages and make a huge country and build all that kind of stuff. But I'm a survivor really. MC Is awesome! But I think they should change creative a little bit.

I'm from beta 1.3. I like survival alot more. I really miss how on servers we could just play and have fun, who CARES how our buildings looked? We just built, and had fun! Now, building have to look good, and it's no fun having an ugly house. I wish that creepers were just as scary...

i like both really sometimes im in a survival mood and sometimes in a creative mood... mainly do creative building tho because i like to express my creativity with large builds not limited by things like resources etc but it does get abit dull after a while i know what you mean... but then i play survival for abit or maybe some other games and then i get back into it :)
from beta 1.4

favorite was beta 1.4 because i built the simplest but most epic hosue ever. And i didnt know how to mod so i had to be vanilla

I miss the more plain biomes of early Minecraft.
I'm not an elder to the game.

But I have been around since 1.4 release.

I loved those old days with just a health bar. Oh the glory.

I started in classic for a month. By that time I think Beta 1.3 came out.

I'm a multi-worlds guy. I switch from survival to creative world or creative to survival world in this server.

I'm both. I loooove creating, but sometimes I feel like playing survival. I think Minecraft was at it's best when it was 1.7. I miss 1.7 so much. It wasn't too complex, but it wasn't also too plain. Creative was a good addition to Minecraft, but all my frends play is creative. They have never playd survival. Seriously, they say they hate it.

I came in alpha...I still like to think about my early days of Minecraft and how I never went past that mountain because there was suspicious snow xD. I also remember my first time finding a pumpkin patch. Those lovely days.

THIS IS SOOOOO TRUE!!! Came in 1.3, miss 1.3. The simplicity of harvesting in the day, trying not to die in the night. I have thoughts that are pretty much this exact blog so many times. You, friend, are doing good getting it out to the community. Have a diamond, to support this cause. And favourite. Oh yes, I have seen your other blogs aswell, soooo... You just earned another subscriber.

I'm also a survival person :)
but I think the community is still working on minecraft alot.
Here, This is my forum on minecraft's future - www.planetminecraft.com/blog/minecrafts-future/
I agree with sed11 about more updates and awesome stuff will be added :)
Hard to say about some awesome updates. I hope they implement some of the ideas I wrote on my blog. :D

If you don't like the new stuff in the updates...avoid them....

Also you don't even have to do creative mode I thought we were past this :/



Also that was BETA AND BEFORe the real minecraft came in 1.0.0 and still more updates are being added with more awesome stuff.
Although that's a good point, Mojang implemented them for a reason. To use them. So... ;P

I never said you said I had to use them. I just said they were implemented so you CAN use them. -.-
