You can't deny that running off of a server causes a RIDICULOUS amount of bugs. As it stands single player isn't even playable (obviously), but even if the major issues are sorted out we would still have to deal all of the synchronization issues.
The Server-to-Client architecture needs to be completely reworked and optimized.
In case anyone disagrees with me, please ride in a boat in singleplayer.
Whether or not these issues will be fixed remains to be seen, as we have heard nothing.
I completely agree, everyone seems to assume it will be fixed by the next snapshot, Mojang has had years to fix these multiplayer glitches, yet people expect them to fix it in 2 weeks?
