    People complain because they do not like change. The PVP'ers like the old spam click PVP cause it is exciting and fast paced. The 1.9 PVP is more bow oriented and slower paced with the change in the click rate. I like the 1.9 combat because it adds a challenge in survival. I cannot spam click because I have lag so the new pvp helps me even though I am still bad at it. I have watched pvp battles that last forever because of constant gaps/pearling/pots. I would rather the battles be shorter and more strategy oriented with bows and melee combat. Any new updates receive criticism since people are more likely to vent rather than praise. Its just the way social media and the internet works for people. I read tons more hateful messages than positive ones. We should be thankful Mojang has done what they have with this game we love so much. It could have stopped back at the survival/nether update but they decided to keep updating. Mojang gave us a launcher that allows us to play the old versions if that is what we like. I see many servers that use parts of 1.7 (cannoning physics) mixed with 1.8 and they make it work for the community. Mojang gives modders codepacks that allow them to make add ons and minigames galour. This is a game that is still popular after 6-7 years of release. There isn't many other games that can say that after 1 year much less 5 or more.

    I can always find something that is not in a game and complain about it. The wonderful thing about minecraft is that if you want it in the game, you can mod it and add it in. I personally cannot do this, but have seen some amazing mods/resource packs etc.. that put tons more blocks in the game. I like trying to figure out how to make things work with the given blocks rather than say that I don't like it because it doesn't place vertically( like the slabs). I have seen some creative people use stairs in ways I would never think of. Some of the detailed builds are like amazing and completely vanilla. I think the enchantments can be modded fairly easily since I have seen servers with all kinds of enchantments that are way more OP than vanilla. I tend to play minecraft in different ways when I get tired/bored with it. For example, I have been playing faction servers lately (saicopvp) and (mafiacraft). A favorite server of mine will reset their skyblock soon( AWNW.net ) and I will grind on skyblock for a few weeks or so. Survival servers will be reseting to 1.9 when all of the plugins get updated and I will play survival. You can play any minigame imaginable on many different servers or just build in creative with friends. Each time I get into a rut and am bored with it, I just quit for few days or play a different "version" of minecraft. Thats why the game has been so popular even if some fans are complaining about it. It is the only game I have on multiple platforms (PC, XBOX, IPAD) I would get it on Wii U if they will support the gamepad local multiplayer so one person can see their point of view on the TV and other through gamepad. I have donated to servers to support them and I see thousands of others doing the same. I don't think everyone is unhappy about minecraft but you will always hear about those venting online.
