Mojang has recently announced their new plan to unite all non-PC platforms so they can all join the same servers. This is a slap in the face to anyone who plays PC edition as a player, server owner, or developer. While currently this does not include currently the PC edition, they are trying to make it so new players play the Windows 10 Edition, instead of the regular edition. Their goal is to make the current PC version obsolete, as the sales of all other versions of the game are much higher. Why does this matter? Why don't we just switch to the new version? The new game is written in C#. Not only will mods and plugins be written in a new language, but all existing plugins will become useless because the Bukkit API will be no more. Server owners will have to create servers without any of their current favorite plugins. Some will be ported, others will be forgotten. Developers will have to port entire networks to a new language, with a new API, a new game that may not even allow for what was previously possible. They must cater to developers to make servers transition without fragmenting the community. This change would not have been bad in 2011, even 2012. However, at this point, it's too late to do something like this. There are a few non-optimal solutions PC servers could have: - ProtocolSupport adding non PC support (Probably the best option, however laggy) - Mojang adding a way to write plugins in multiple languages, Java, C#. (This will not keep current plugins working, but it will make transitioning easier.) On top of this all, Mojang has the audacity to put sponsored servers on the main menu. This is some dirty monopolistic garbage they're up to. Ultimately, nothing says they can't do this except the community. The community needs to decide whether a move like this is the future they want for Minecraft. Make your voice heard. Source: https://minecraft.net/en-us/article/all-news-e3 What do you think? Is this all worth it for a better game?
