I really want to know what the subscriptions will be like. Minecraft has grown even further. It started out as a small game, but it has expanded widely. Sure it may take a few hours to complete (Probably 2), but there are so many things you can do, such things as getting all the wool colours, getting all the ore blocks (y u no add coal block?), getting the music disks and even beating both bosses. They've also done some sneaky things. It's pretty expansive, yet it is kinda linear. To get to the ender dragon, you have to get wood, then get stone, then iron, then diamond, get obsidian, go to the nether, find fortress, blaze spawner, blaze powder, kill endermen for ender pearls, make >12 eye of enders, find the stronghold and of course, beat the ender dragon. It's not a game that is meant to be short. But that's just singleplayer stuff. Multiplayer adds SO much more! It's singleplayer WITH FRIENDS! HOW AWESOME IS THAT! Multiplayer started pretty bad (I think) with lots of weird bugs (worldholes, nether portal bug, etc), but now it's gone from crazy buggy to crazy worldwide! Even though we have other servers, I think Minecraft realms holds a lot in one hand. In it's other, it's got the space for more. Now something I want. I want it possible to connect one world to another in singleplayer, and not just MCedit, or anything. Same for multiplayer, and in vanilla (or at least an awesome mod). I see a lot of cool things coming from Minecraft realms and I will most likely get a server just so I can play with my friends and possibly people from around the world on my own little Vanilla world.
Probably get some TL;DR's in here XD
With plugins, you can already connect worlds and even transfer between servers through portals.
