Re: Cya later.

Wait, so Minecraft on PC is stopping with development? Is this why they added so many things to 1.8, so that we have something to enjoy before they quit?

Or am I just misinterpreting this? I mean, eula sucks, 1.8 servers suck, and as far as I know minecraft on the xbox is the "poverty sellout" version of minecraft. I'm scared now. :(

re: cya later

calm, calm. no one is even hinting that development on minecraft is stopping. people hate microsoft for a variety of reasons, so there's a lot of vitriol and fear around based on this decision, but other than microsoft buying mojang and notch, carl & jakob leaving, no major changes have been announced or probably even planned. the actual main dev team is staying. microsoft will take time to complete the purchase and evaluate what they want to do with their new toy.

it should also be noted that microsoft's upper management has changed from what it used to be in the old days. they've expressed, among other things, a desire to get their products working on other platforms. i'll believe what i see, of course, but there's potential, at least.

if you're so opposed to microsoft that you have to leave, that's your call; we'll miss you. me? i'm not here for mojang or for free software or to spite microsoft. i'm here to have fun and cuz trey and this community are cool. i'm stayin and watchin the chaos with equanimity.

There is no reason to worry :)

I do agree with Trist. Will they make online cost money? Probably... How else would they make back the 2.5 billion but as far as changes go, I don't think there will be many until later on. Enjoy the game, there is no reason to be stressed, even if there are chamges we will get through it.

For the meantime, I have no plans on leaving. Microsoft bought mojang? No big deal to me. Wait and see what happens. Could be good... or not.

Lest it ever happens, we must still stick together!

I'm pretty sure we're ok for now. Funny how they've released Windows OS 10, maybe we we'll get Minecraft 3 soon.

Well...

Well...they did skip Windows 9.

Logically: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 9...but no, Microsoft has to skip 9 and release 10 instead.

So why not MC3? xD

It's crazy, but

They're skipping 9 to mark 'a leap in the progress of unifying computing and mobile devices'.

It's what they tried to do with 8, and failed.

Crazy, right?

Fail

How could something fail so badly that it didn't make it out of alpha, and if it did fail like that, they just skipped it because it was such a failure? 

That has to be *really* bad to do that

Heh, I was just speculating

Heh, I was just speculating for comedic effect. There really isn't any logical reason. It was likely a decision by the marketing department.

Heh

I still like the idea that something failed so badly that they decided not to continue it and skip ahead to the next number.
