When you buy this game, you must aggree to the terms and conditions that most, if not all people skip over in any program. Well, approximately 20 months ago, Mojang introduced a new End User License Agreement, or EULA, to the terms of Minecraft. This new EULA brought changes to how multiplayer servers could be run. Before these changes, many people made an empire, and a fortune, off of a server ran by themselves so players could play Minecraft together. The new EULA was brought into effect with changes such as:
In essence, this means no more "Pay2Win" server structures which many servers rely on to survive. These changes will lead to the death of many servers because of lack of monetary support if servers become EULA compliant. If Mojang finds any server that is non-compliant, they will be blacklisted so that players cannot connect to them. It leaves people scratching their head and with a "Network Unreachable" error.
These developments are sparking both outrage and happiness in the Minecraft community. I am wondering what your opinions are, so let me know below!
