With the release of 1.9 came a lot of hate, because of the attack cooldown system. The first 1.11 snapshot was released recently, and as Logdotzip says; "Minecraft is going to be a lot harder.". What's your opinion? Do you think Minecraft is dying?

This is legit the best explanation of how Minecraft has slightly declined in the interest of many.

Razzberry_PieMinecraft has been dying. I personally haven't played for years and just started again for the purpose of being staff on a friends server. I know the game, but will all of the updates i feel like a noob.
The reason? The player base. When it was first released the player based ranged widely, but one can safely assume many were pre-college or pre career. After a couple years, the players started to have other responsibilities and couldn't play the game much anymore. They then realized how the player based has changed, Team Crafted began to take over, and now the game is more for people under the age of 15. Thats what happened to me and many of my friends at least.

Ugh, "IS MAINCREFT DAYING?" No kid, it is not dying. People that create these threads are below the age of 3 or have some mental issues.

Google Trends sure thinks so.
At its peak in 2013, where you can see it had 100%, at current point its only at 80 - and looks like it will continue to go down.

I agree with the people who are saying redstone, hunger etc etc killed Minecraft, and I couldn't agree more. However, nostalgia does take us over to some degree, but personally I think that some new changes are good, but some are terrible.

Not every change minecraft makes everyone will like or everyone will dislike. In my opinion all the changes are amazing, people are just to picky. They also forgot they can just go to an older version of minecraft. Idiots..

It seems that there is always a cycle for when a big game changing update comes out.
First lots of people hate on it initially and then about a week or so most of later those people usually end up thinking that the update isn't so bad. Then the next big update comes out and the cycle repeats.

I personally think that 1.9 is awesome. I use axes, and it is surprising how fast you can WRECK players if you hit immediately after the cooldown ends. I get hackusated practically 24/7 at this point xD

I think people just feel that it's dying because they're losing interest and just assume that everyone else is too. Minecraft's been around since 2009… Someone born in 2009 may now be starting to play. Yeah, that was seven years ago, so I bet you feel old now.

*Redstone in Alpha killed minecraft
*The nether killed minecraft
*Hunger killed minecraft
*Sneaking killed minecraft
*Sprinting killed minecraft
*Enchantments killed minecraft
*Potions killed minecraft
*The end killed minecraft
*Beacons killed minecraft
*The wither killed minecraft
*1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 1.8 killed minecraft too
*1.9's combat killed minecraft as well
*1.10 killed minecraft because people feel like it

Minecraft has supposetly died a bazillion times, so no, minecraft did not die while you were sitting on the toilet a few hours ago. It will not die before you weak up tomorrow, and it will not die in the middle of this week when a sack of rice falls in china. Stop. Complaining. For. God's. Sake.

I couldn't agree more. There's just a few noobs who feel they have to complain about everything. It's good that the game is getting harder. It'll make it more challanging for super pros and keep them from leaving, and kick off the 6 year old trolling noobs who always call "hax"

Minecraft is not dying, and based on the hundreds of thousands of players who play on several popular servers, it most likely won't die for AT LEAST 10 years unless they shut it down theirselves. Minecraft is not dying and you're only talking about the servers? Maybe the server is dying, or maybe everyone plays at a different time? Not to mention there are still players that may be in solo mode. Minecraft is not dying, and there was no reason to bring this up. Also, if you don't like new updates it's your fault, not minecrafts. They aren't going to change just because of a small handful of players.

MaxResolutionHowever, Mojang shot themself in the foot when they updated their EULA and it prohibited people from using real-life currency to purchase things in-game that give you an advantage. Honestly, the thing that made Minecraft fun was buying awesome stuff to get better gear than your friends ! I sense socialism in Minecraft. You're only allowed to purchase things (excluding cosmetic items) that give you an advantage as long as EVERYONE gets them. Where's the point in that? Mojang, congrats, you shot yourself in the foot! If multiplayer dies, so do you!



Have you ever played on Kit PVP servers where not paying gets you access to nothing but leather armor and a stone sword, but you can pay $200 to get full P4 diamond armor, S5 Fire 2 diamond sword, P5 Flame Infinity bow, 64 notch apples, and everything else you could possibly need to 1 hit everyone who doesn't have access to their parents credit cards?

Minecraft wouldn't be "dying" I don't see any point in discussing this topic. Minecraft would "die" if it was a living person. Minecraft would "die" if it was an animal. So the answer is no. Minecraft isn't "dying"

Minecraft is just coming to settle out of a huge pickup. Do any of you seriously think that an update is ruining Minecraft to the point where people just quit? Minecraft, like any other game, can get tiring after awhile. Less people play it for awhile, then some people go back. Etc.

I think Minecraft isnt "dying". I think its trying new things, and trying to base slightly more towards the kid fan base.All these people saying 1.9 or what ever update killed the game. I do agree that its getting kinda packed though.
If anything, Minecraft is evolving. (Basicly what I just explained, ik)
Its adapting to its enviorment. The fan base is growing by the thousands.
You can't please every one.

I do hate Microsoft is trying to get rid of the java aspect of Minecraft.
I think people are still paranoid do to the fact Notch left.

I think minecraft is dying in another way. it has nothing to do with updates i think. the game is just getting older. and less and less people are playing it. all the big servers i used to play with 500+ players. they don't exist anymore or got very few players. just the minecraft forums and pmc have alot less activity than it used to have. even more bigger people on pmc have become less active. for example grey remnant who used to post something on pmc everyday and responded to almost all my submissions and those of alot of others hardly comes online anymore his last submission was 4 months ago. pmc has 2 mil members and only 6 or 7k people online. alot of people have felt probaly theyve got to old to play it. and alot less new people are buying the game these days. Servers are getting emptyer aswell except for the few big ones like mineplex and the archon. But alot of other servers that used to be quite big are now dissapearing.
Its a slow death ofcourse.

These threads are completely pointless with their clickbait. No Minecraft is not dying, more people are buying it by the minute. Sure, some people may have left because of 1.9 and 1.10, but they are ultimately replaced with many other players.

It was so popular for awhile, now everyone just needs a break.
Watch paulsoaresjr's "1 Million Soarvivors" video. It talks a bit about this, but mostly how he began to drop from the game.

No, I honestly don't think Minecraft is dying. You may have started playing MC with your friends years ago and then they suddenly begin to get bored of it and leave, like my friends, however, keep in mind that the game is still extremely popular and hundreds of thousands of new people are joining all the time.

However, Mojang shot themself in the foot when they updated their EULA and it prohibited people from using real-life currency to purchase things in-game that give you an advantage. Honestly, the thing that made Minecraft fun was buying awesome stuff to get better gear than your friends ! I sense socialism in Minecraft.

no thats not the point of it. i don't play multiplayer with my friends, and i could never win anything because everyone else bought stuff making it impossible for me to win. The top kit on one server was $200! it basically becomes pay to win, and if you go cheap, you lose. i don't think it should be removed comepletely as bonuses are nice, however lots of servers went overboard on it. i think the eula was a good thing because now those annoying p2w servers can't charge you for winning their games or having op gear.

Here we go again with the EULA issue.

They updated and started enforcing their EULA to prohibit corrupt pay2win servers and people profiting off their content.

Minecraft has been dying since it was born. That's how the cycle of existence works.

Debating if it's dying when there is an active community on it is a rather silly thing to discuss in the first place.
