** Jeb reintroduced the concept of armor protection being dictated by durability. After complaints and discoveries of full diamond suits [[GameBreakingBug being worse than]] ''[[GameBreakingBug leather]]'' [[GameBreakingBug at half durability]], Jeb reverted the change. He also says it's due to finding that it prvented individual armor values being an attribute.

Its distorted shape and downright terrifying face, as well as the fact that it ''sneaks onto you with a SSSS sound followed by your death'' - and probably a heart attack - make it one of the most original and frightening enemies in modern videogaming history.

** The announcement of [[TooAwesomeToUse enchanted golden apples]] being nerfed in 1.9. Fans in favor of this say that this is a good thing, because the methods of killing a player under its effects (spamming attacks and the Sharpness enchantment) have been nerfed, making the enchanted golden apple a true GameBreaker. Those against it argue that it takes far too much effort to either find the 72 gold ores required or set up a Zombie Pigman farm in the Nether and killing more than a thousand Pigmen for the apple to give less than its current effects, as well as the achievement for crafting one being called ''[[PurposelyOverpowered Overpowered]]''. Some critics of the nerf would've much rather taken a nerf to gold farms, a change that the developers didn't want to make.

Some Nintendo fans think it's too late, while others think it's better late than never.never. ** One of the later 1.9 snapshots partially reverted the nerf to "spam-clicking", so that attacking rapidly would no longer do ScratchDamage. Good news for combat for pros and noobs alike, or a return to brainless flailing around?

** After beetroot was introduced to the Pocket Edition, a picture of Jeb in-game in the PC version was found, but it turned out to be fake. A fan asked if beetroot was ever going to be in PC, and Jeb said it wouldn't. Apparently, the dev team didn't get the memo, because beetroot's going to be in 1.9.

The fans say that this will alleviate the problem of "spam-clicking"... in a way that kills fast-paced PvP. They also say it'll push PvPers away from Minecraft, and that the update called the "Combat Update" will ironically be the one that [[RuinedForever that ruins combat forever]]. However, some are hopeful that this change will justify the need for dual-wielding weapons, a feature many wanted and were upset wouldn't be in the update.

* BrokenBase: Any suggested feature or change will RUIN THE GAME FOREVER. Unfortunately Minecraft is about as good at causing conflict as a harmless [[Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Babelfish]], despite destroying many barriers of communication between human beings. Almost every update somehow breaks the fan base into smaller and smaller pieces.

** What else is good with water? Boats? The feature that's really hard to control and breaks into a smaller fraction of the pieces needed to make it? Mojang finally heard the pleas of the fanbase and started fixing boats in Minecraft 1.9. But one snapshot (specifically 16w04a) went so far as to accidentally make boats rideable on land - at the ''exact speed'' with which they would travel in water. That's right. As of that snapshot, Minecraft boats act almost exactly like Minecraft cars!

The annoying vehicle that glitches out and ejects you several blocks away from where you should be upon dismounting? Actually they are pretty good. Mojang finally heard the pleas of the fanbase and started fixing boats in Minecraft 1.9. Now they are nowhere near as annoying. But one snapshot (specifically 16w04a) went so far as to accidentally make boats rideable on land - at the ''exact speed'' with which they would travel in water. That's right.

** The game itself suffers from this- being one of the most popular games ever let's played (Especially by LetsPlay/Yogscast and AchievementHunter) has turned some people off, while others think that "It's a lot of noise made over glorified LEGO."

*** Duplication was also possible in the PS Vita edition if you had a Playstation 3 as well. Namely, when you saved in the Vita edition, the world was saved, but your character placement and ''inventory'' weren't. By uploading your save and making your inventory on the 3 be a bunch of rare materials, you could then place them all in treasure chests on the Vita, save, then exit. When you reload the world, all the materials are both in the chest ''and'' your inventory!
