    While I dislike this, I realize there is not much we can do to stop this. But anyways, if it is only for 1.9.3+, then I'm fine with not updating... :3

    Mojang just can't make the right choices now a days.

    Hey Mojang! Idea! Make a service for servers, and any server that wants to not go by the EULA, can pay for their server. Forget using mcprohosting or whatever, and use their service.

    What exactly do we lose? Anything NOT cosmetic.

    This being
    • Kits
    • Perks in any mini-game
    • Enchant & fix (?)
    Cosmetics
    • Fly
    • Disguise
    • Pets
    • Gadgets
    • Special islands (?)

    It seems like a lot of you guys are worried that you won't have game advantages that you get for paying money anymore.
    Most of these advantages, like having /fly in survival or getting prot 4 without any effort, are unfair to players who can't pay or don't have access to their/their parent's credit card. Plus you get way ahead in the game without putting in any effort.

    Where's the fun in that?

    Enforcing the EULA means you need to play the game to get ahead, instead of just buying your way to the top. It may not be favorable for some, but the game wasn't meant to have micro-transactions.

    You can't just buy your way to the top in the real world. You need to work in order to have money. You should need to work to get good armor in factions.
    If you don't want to play the game without buying your armor with real money, then maybe you shouldn't play it.

    What I'm concerned about is that despite the game being fully playable without micro-transactions, donations are going to slow down. Meaning server is at risk of losing the funds it needs.
    I have two ideas for this:

    • Lower the prices of some of the remaining store items permanently, which will encourage people to buy them because they're cheap, but if people do not buy them may lead to less profit.
    • Make the prices higher, which will net the server more money with each donation, but people will be less encouraged to buy them.
    Of course, it's not ultimately up to me.

    Also, question for Harry in particular: Seeing as you guys do monetize your Youtube channels (I asked Jerry about this some time ago and he told me yes. Go to the fifth or sixth page on his profile if you don't believe me lol) are they profitable enough for you to put some of it away to keep the server running if worse comes to worst? I don't know what you guys use the money for but this could be a good investment if you don't already do it.

    I just wrote a thread about this.... darn you XD

    anyway, like I said in my thread (http://itsjerryandharry.com/threads...about-the-eula-please-read.91265/#post-868237)

    this is why it should be removed
    why buy the game with no intention of playing it??

    this is a game, you brought it to play it and get to the top
    not pay someone else to stick you up there
    what the point in the game then??

    Jerry , Harry I have a way to use the resource pack for running videos i.e. advertisements.Tried to see if Google wanted to make use of it but no reply. So you could use them only in areas where cost needs to be offset. Players going to a so called pay zone would only see the ads as they went to it.

    One other question would selling my island and/or plots to me as a download go bad with the Micro$off EULA?

    Thanks for running a GREAT set of servers.

    For once, a long plan of mine is to make the server fair for everyone, I've no idea how many times people has left due to being unfair and I can agree on it, by us donators we get a boost if they're comming new mini-games or resets, making us faster then defauls, I'm honestly happy for J&H to change it become not Pay2Win anymore, making it more fun for non-donators, as I've seen it too often, and people disagreeing on it, let me say this, do you want a game where you must pay to win things? like pvp fights or getting better gear? you don't? well that's the thing with the eula making it so you've the same chance of everything to win or lose, and now we've too relise to make it nicer to people that can't spend money online or won't due to they think it's unfair for defauls having their eyes on them, and I want to prove that most communitys are also changing to make minecraft a whole not "pay4win" more like "play4win" and we can't change that thing but that's my honest opinion about this thread and the new eula and their rules, only hope J&H will earn enough money from buying non good things.

    Eyy? no I don't think it is as it's more like pay4win as you can use it on skyblock etc making it easier to do other things as building and using it to other things, though I've to point this out, fly isn't cosmetical they said themself in the eula thread.

    Fly is cosmetical because you can travel more faster and yea it's useful for building but it's not pay4win. And one of the moderator already stated that /fly is cosmetical.
