    Seriously, how can you get get this to 3.97 seconds?! How?! I mean, I was seriously bad in math in school, and still am, but not even I can get that as high as 3.97 (practically 4 seconds) between two hits?! If this isn't extreme case of fan boyism over the old combat system, then I don't know what this is? Either that, or then you are very successful troll. But I guess, that haters gonna hate.



    I'm talking about 1.7.10 which is what I'm playing on. This 1.9 decreased damage wait until it regenerates thing is driving me crazy. Its just wait and hit... wait and hit... wait............. and................... hit... and I'm not a hater. I dislike this aspect of minecraft, and wish it was never implemented. But I don't HATE it.

    I am not a PvPer anymore. I mostly play Pve. And you don't need to smash your mouse to do it, it's not like you are going "BANG BANG BANG" on it. The new combat system is just pretty much slower spam clicking. It is boring and for me, requires no skill. I would bet that if these changes had never been implemented nobody would be complaining about it.


    I agree with this comment. I would not mind, and might have continued playing if they hadn't done this. It is too slow.

    Spam clicking mindlessly isn't particularly unique either lol, almost every combat system you can think of has been used before. Read my previous posts on this page.


    The vibe I'm getting from you is that all you care about is something being unique, not if it's useful or interesting. You've stomped on dual wielding not because it isn't useful or agreeable, but simply because another game or mod has used it. Heck, even everyone else who dislikes 1.9 on here doesn't mind the dual wielding. It isn't a combat feature, it's a utility feature, and it's 100% optional to use.


    If I were to make some horrid feature that was unique, it sounds like you would approve of it simply because it's different. This planet has a population of 7 billion, you're not the first to ever think of an idea. You can think you are, but it doesn't mean you are.



    First off, You don't get good at the older version by spam clicking. Second, I don't only care if it is unique. It only supports my argument. Unique can improve the view of something, sure, but don't fix something that isn't broken.


    Also, many games now are becoming alike. Games adopt stuff that was famous and then every things the same. Look at Destiny. Black ops 3, and Titainfall adopted the very similar movement.

    I hate the PvP aspect of this game now. This thread is about why people hate 1.9, and I responded with my bias opinion. Terraria is a 2d game and PvP in that game is more simplistic no strafing, no flint and steel. It seems like a 1970s Nintendo game. And Like I said. Duel wielding with a shield isn't unique. Look: Oblivion, Halo 2, Dark Souls, Assassins Creed, Tom raider, and every western game ever created.



    Beds are still a thing, the player is very fast compared to any other mob and mobs make little effort to pursue you. If you don't want to fight mobs, build a wall around your base or light up the areas around your home, just as people would before. The idea combat is now the primary thing that the player now must do and there is no way to opt out is simply not true.

    Here's the thing, I love to get on a super flat and slay every mob I can find until they give up spawning. PvP and PvE was, besides building, my one of my favorite aspects of the game.

    Unique?! In what way that brainless hack 'n slash everything that moves was unique? If you want to play hack 'n slash game, you go play hack 'n slash game. Now I don't say that this dual wielding mechanic or new combat system is perfect, but it surely is way better than what we had.
    Of course everyone have their own opinion, but claiming, that the old combat system was unique is utter bs.
    If you use shield with your main weapon, is it sword or axe, you still need to switch to whatever item you want to use next quickly, while blocking oncoming attacks with the shield. You haven't noticed that?

    And for those who miss the blocking with the sword: That mechanic was stupid. Seriously stupid.

    I think you misunderstood. The definition of unique is: being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else. Not cool. The brainless hack and slash is exactly what made it unique. Name another game like it. more game aspects doesn't make a game unique. The game Oblivion was a huge fail for me, and had these same fighting mechanics.

    No, hunger did not at all make the game harder

    I disagree with this comment. It still did, however, bring more use to food. (I used to play alpha all the time. And I always carry food.)

    I do not think that 1.9 made minecraft "Harder", it made it easier. Some aspects of the game I have not yet gotten over. 1.9 Can't block with a sword, 1.7+ only few zombies break doors, etc... I most certainly CAN except the fact that minecraft will change, but I feel as though it isn't being "improved" as much as ruined. Sure, most change is good, but like i said... All bias opinion.

    You are making my life very tedious. I do not spend all day on forums like most people which is why I keep repeating these comments that "make my argument weak". Do you think, however, that Battlegear is going to be big with just axes and shields? Custom npcs has all of that! (Which will probably be adopted next). On a pvp server, jumping around with duel wield diamond swords against first timer, wooden sword, leather armor noob is going to be crushed. Classic was bad enough. Mo creatures was a bad argument and i apologize. But, 1.9 is too far of a change... If somebody wants duel wielding, get battlegear, but who is going to make a single wield mod? I just think, that all us minecrafters who didn't prefer it is stuck with 1.8 as everyone else gets 1.10 and 2.0. I guess its our loss then eh?

    Have you even tried the new duel wielding mechanic? It's a little confusing at first but it doesn't take long to learn and it makes so many things more efficient. And it's not OP at all. Even if you have only one weapon, you can hold a potion, a stack of blocks, water, lava, ender pearls, etc. It all depends on your strategy. You could argue that it puts more favor into whoever gets these items early on, but that's always been how PvP works. Whoever gets the best stuff early on usually wins.

    Plus, the only combination of weapons that is actually beneficial is a sword and bow. You can only attack with your dominant hand, so holding two swords is a waste of space and will likely just get you killed. I only mentioned Halo 2 to show that it's not just a "mod idea." Comparing MInecraft's dual wielding to Halo's isn't accurate at all. The only similarity is holding two items at once, same as any similarities between the Minecraft dual wielding and any dual wielding mod out there.

    You're definitely entitled to your own opinion, but I'd strongly suggest learning the new features and getting used to them, or else you're simply never going to experience anything new from vanilla Minecraft again and if you ever do decide to check it out, you'll probably be completely overwhelmed with a massive burst of new things.



    Did even you here what I said?

    Also, In don't want this to become a battle in any way, and I'm sorry if you didn't like my posts.


    None the less, yes I have played the duel wielding mechanics, for over a week mind you. I never will like a duel wielding aspect unless it is balanced, such as the Call of Duty games. I'm sorry, You will have a tough time convincing me.

    I do apologize for the use of False Analogy Fallacy.

    I myself don't like 1.9. I liked the traditional aspect of minecraft, and now with the odd aspects of the pvp and badness of the second hand... Just... No. And, I disagree with what mojang is doing. They are taking aspects from the best mods (e.g Mine and Blade Battlegear) and discontinued any future work for that modder.
