Hello Spigoteers, I've been sitting with this for a while and honestly, I'm starting to get clueless. I wasn't against the EULA at all when it first came out, the idea of removing pay to win on the game to me was great, finally something to remove unfair ranks and such. Although I liked it at first, I feel like Mojang has taken it way to far. It's gotten to the point where you can't even allow voting anymore? I don't know if this is true but I presume it is since Hypixel removed their voting. That brings me to the thought of, how do they expect any server to start up if voting isn't allowed anymore? They just make it semi impossible for small servers to grow unless they throw money away on these overpriced "Advertisements" What has this game become? Honestly..? I'll just throw out my own opinion on the entirety of Minecraft in it's current and previous state. Certain servers sell ranks that are so overpriced that it should be illegal to ask that money for it. The base game of Minecraft costs what? 20$ now? Whilst some servers ask over 200$+ for a simple rank. Am I the only one who finds this ridiculous? They sell things that are available in the main game that cost around 20$ for about 10x or more as much and get away with it. Meanwhile Mojang worries about voting? I hope you get my point. I find it simply baffling that Mojang ignores what is really the bad thing. The insane prices they ask for ranks. Meanwhile those servers stay on top because they don't need voting, they keep making money and growing and the smaller servers get screwed over by the EULA a lot more than the bigger ones. And guess what the fun thing is. In order to get anywhere with a starting server you have to ALSO throw hundreds out just to get started and get a decent playerbase. Since voting isn't allowed, how else are you gonna do it? I find it a bit insane that Mojang doesn't do anything about the insane amount of money that has to be given to get anywhere in the game. How are they against Voting, but not against owners having to spend hundreds just to get anywhere? And Yes, I get this whole "They are doing it to sell more Realm server" but lets face it, that won't happen anyway so don't mention it. I have no clue what Mojang is thinking in my honest opinion. How is paying with time hard currency? Might as well close down every minigame server because you're paying with time to get coins in order to get anything in-game. My question to you all is, what is your opinion on this and what is there to be done about it? I am gonna keep my server up no matter what the playercount is or whether I get donations or not, I just want to hear your opinion on this, do you think there is anything we can do to resolve this issue? Is there a backdoor to this all? Let me know, Diamond_X Keep in mind that this is MY opinion. No need to bash me for it, that isn't the point of this thread.
