Recently, people began to talk about how Mojang's new EULA began to ruin Minecraft.

What is the EULA you speak of?
In case you havent heard of it, Mojang's new EULA is their revised End-User License Agreement, which now more explicitly states that servers may not sell items in any way, or force players to donate for game-changing perks. This means kits, items, and anything else that changes the gameplay for everyone. This causes players to actually donate for nothing in return, or so that everyone may gain something from it, or that there is a chance that anyone can get it. (Network Boosters, randomly-spawned chests, etc.)

Why it makes everything better.
Like I said before, it forces players to actually donate, in which they don't in particular get anything game-changing. While yes, this does completely and utterly crush a lot of servers, this filters out all the ordinary, boring, mediocre servers that isnt good enough to receive real donations. The ones left standing? The good, well-made and moderated servers that are fair and fun for all. 

In Conclusion.
In conclusion, the new EULA makes all minecraft servers much better, filtering out the mediocre ones from the actual good ones. This makes it more enjoyable overall, and should be seen as such.

Would be a good blog, if it were true. Problem is, most players don't care to donate. When you buy freeware, how many players do you think actually donate? Close to zero

Oh, and those may be the "boring" servers in your opinion, but many do enjoy haveing a simpler, place to just enjoy playing Minecraft with other people.

There are many smaller servers, where there is nothing to win, or no pvp except for events.....For these servers the EULA has really made things harder for them.  Donators may get some things but nothing op, nothing that would make them op during any events either.  It is a shame some of these servers won't be able to survive possibly because of this.
Personally I am glad that the Eula has been updated.  With the state of its previous version it was hard to actually tell whan could be done with THEIR game and YOUR server.  Honestly we cant get mad at them for finally updating it, and making it clear.  With all the complaints they got from angry parents, or other people complaining about money spent on the servers, it wasnt Mojangs problem when someone spent their parents money on a server, and with hundreds of complaints towards them, they had to finally update the Eula.  At least with the new one set, we wont see servers over using the "Donation" aspect of a server.

The EULA sucks even mojang put on the minecraft mulitplayer realms and singleplayer selections u will see (if ur lucky) Minecraft's EULA sucks
Not sure if you meant this , but players are allowed to purchase effects that boost everybody's game. Such as , a person buys Strength for 24hrs , then everybody on the server in that time gets that boost.

It won't make anything different. No one is going to follow it, if they do they are stupid.

If they enforce it it's going to kill multiplayer. It won't make ANYTHING better.

If they don't agree to it they'll be reported, pmc is one of the groups where you can report servers for disobeying the eula

I agree, but even if the good servers are still stand, the amount of donations are still low now, because most servers will have that default rank, and now none of their players can get above that default rank. The "good servers" still may stand and get donations from the people who donate to keep it up and not the ones who donate for ranks, which is around 90% of a servers donation base.

This might cause servers such as Mineplex and Wynncraft to change a lot.
On the servers I play, people still have ranks and perks, you just can't buy them anymore. It sucks bc on PvP servers or CoD servers and stuff like that some players are to OP. The other players have no chance of winning.

It sucks that other people get better kits on a lot of other servers and use them as advantages.

  Personally as someone who has already donated to many servers and spent probably around 1,000 dollars doing so I hate EULA.
I hate it too! The whole point of ranks is to keep the server running, and to give perks!! If you don't get anything, then servers like Mineplex could shut down because nobody would buy ranks! Even though Mineplex probably will never shut down, it's always possible!

Deal with it, the point of a game is that you're not suppose to make money off it. Every game has a Licsense agreement, if you don't follow them, then you're banned from playing.
Yeah, but hosting servers isn't free.

As you say above "How is he wrong for having an opinion" so leave my personal opinion be rather than being rude about it.

Not a bad thought at all. Keep in mind, to get a point across you may need to make things like these longer.

If it helps, you could even try essay format, even if you're not a fan of it.

Other than that, you are good at getting your point across with the explination, and not side-tracking at all. Keep it up, this is the kind of stuff I don't mind reading.
