Minecraft Mob Vote 2023: A disappointment waiting to happen?

Poster for Minecraft Mob Vote 2023

As this year’s Minecraft Live comes right around the corner, it once again brings the awaited, yet always controversial Minecraft Mob Vote; which already has people throwing hands over which one to choose.

But for many years the minecraft community (me included) has been almost unanimous on one thing: Just add all three.

If you had to pick between increased action range with a crab’s claw (PvP OP), sturdier wolves with armadillo scute armor (horses fine with normal armor), or a penguin making your boat faster (def not dolphins 2.0), knowing that whatever loses will be scrapped forever. – This is 2023’s minecraft mob vote in a nutshell.

Why make a Minecraft Mob Vote
Fr why not

The Problem

In paper, minecraft’s mob vote sounds great: more community input, gathering everyone together, making Minecraft Live more engaging, etc.

However, the vote has instead become infamous for the division that it causes within the community, and it being an excuse for half-assed, minimal updates. But most of all: for wasting the game’s potential for future updates.

Many of the ideas and features that are teased, are ditched and never implemented, leaving a sour feeling in the community; to the point that 318.000+ players have already signed a petition on Change.org to permanently end the Mob Vote, and instead call upon Mojang to add atleast 3 mobs per update.

Stop the Mob Vote. Give us three mobs each year. If unpaid modders can add your mobs to the game within days after they’re announced, the least you could do is keep up with the content frequency that made Minecraft famous.

⬤ Summed Up

Minecraft is far off from being indie anymore, and Mojang seems to deliver less and less, even though they have the team and resources to do better. Sadly, the Mob Vote is only the tip of the iceberg, and Mojang doesn’t seem to listen.

Anyhow, catch you in Minecraft Live!
