- A list of blacklisted servers was released (my thoughts are contained below with the assumption that the people decoding the list did so successfully.)
- Mojang is finally enforcing its EULA with serious but non-litigious force (not suing).
- Mojang has officially blacklisted a modded server for the first time, many speculated that modded servers would not be effected by any of this, clearly that’s not the case.
- NOTHING will change for us, we have been compliant for a very long time, and wish to strive to provide the best experience possible, but in order to do so we need your support, you can either visit our store at https://enderplay.com/store or sending a direct donation to firstname.lastname@example.org via PayPal.
Evening friends, Ender here with a community update and my thoughts regarding what is going on in the community right now. You’ve probably seen this image making the rounds in the Minecraftverse:
It is not my intent to blast non-compliant servers here, only to inform our users and provide some anecdotal feedback regarding the situation. We’ve had a very long time to prepare for this, and I doubt any of us will get it right the first time, so please be patient as we try to find a balance between pleasing you guys our amazing players and paying the bills.
Wait you said ENFORCEMENT, not just warnings right? Correct, they are actually denying players access to the servers running the newer version of the game that are not complying. Some servers have outright come out and said they have no plans to comply in the future and would rather just cash out over the next few months and then die.
At the end of the day it’s all about what you, our players are willing to buy, so amidst this crazy situation I want to ask every one of you, what would you pay for, what would you enjoy, what would make you want to support us, what would excite you. When you start taking a game too seriously its no longer fun, so lets keep it light and have a civil conversation about moving forward, because looking back won’t do any of us any good.
Side note, can we all agree that #MicrosoftSaveMinecraft like Microsoft isn’t aware of the whole situation is just absurd, they want to clean it up so its safer for education and better for our youth, if it was your kids, you’d feel the same way.
I can assure you all this, as we take our next steps we do so with very careful thought regarding how it will affect our awesome community, we really love you guys 🙂
Goodnight everyone, and as always,
