With the recent and controversial (?) event of Microsoft buying minecraft, Alot are saying that microsoft is going to ruin the game. Now my personal thoughts are, well, no. Microsoft didn't spend 2 billion on a game just to ruin it, there not stupid. And with tons of rich nerds carrying minecraft the games most likely never gonna die now. Also, screw notch for selling us out. Hope he chokes on that 2 bil.

Well Microsoft didn't really buy minecraft in a sense Mojang is still updating and developing it, what is really going on in Microsoft now has a significant share in and now makes a fair bit of profit from it. Mojang is still handling the updates to the game and how it is sold but now Microsoft has a little bit of say in the progress the game is going to make.

I personally think the game is going to be fine for a very long time (I mean eventually the game will stop being updated and the modders will stop making mods) and the recent developments are likely to be not too big of a deal.

I agree with you, all of these dumb rumors of "Microsoft is going to add in Monthly payments" is absolutely absurd. Microsoft knows what makes Minecraft the game it is, and really, you may not see any difference at all. And also, Notch wasn't working on Minecraft when Microsoft sold the deal. He passed on leadership to jeb a little bit before.

tbh i think minecraft was going to die with mojangs hands anyways.

if you spend a lot of time on the bukkit forums, you will understand
