    In the lobbies it's cosmetic, but in Survival it isn't because:
    • It allows you to build very high up without having to use the "vertical tower" method.
    • As long as it's enabled you don't take fall damage.
    • If you fall in lava you can fly and get out easily.
    etc.

    So /fly probably won't be removed from the store, just no longer usable in Survival.

    I'm gonna make myself very hated upon and say that I support the EULA changes.

    Not because of this server, not at all. I have just seen the abominations on other servers. hoo boiii
    BUY THIS AWESOME RANK NOW FOR JUST 1000 BITCOINS AND GET ADMIN ON THE SERVER XDDDDDDD

    Donations should be and always be what they are called: Donations. Not perks.
    Everyone should be able to enjoy the game to it's fullest, and if he decides that the service deserves support, he can donate to it.
    TLDR: Minecraft =/= EVE Online

    This is going to be a major loss for people who don't have any perks. Minecraft is already making money but why can't owners make money off the server? It's only fair.

    They still can make money, only with cosmetic items.

    That's nice how they added the cosmetics to still get some of that money.

    Like you said, someone bought it from you. Nothing to worry about. You just don't know who it was which you will eventually find out.

    It's not that they can't make the right choices 'now a days'. It's that they let this go on for years and did nothing. Whether they looked the other way or completely ignored it, they did nothing. Now they expect the community as a whole to be okay with it. Chances are servers will find a way around it because a good chunk of the community will figure a way.

    I know people are getting tired of hearing that 'the game will die' because of this decision. If it's fully enforced across the board membership everywhere will drop. We get used to playing a certain way and now we can't do that. The game will be boring. Imagine all the ADHD kiddies (myself included) that play this. Can't keep their attention, won't be able to keep them playing.

    Cosmetical means that it doesn't affect gameplay at all. /fly definitely does, as well as the creation of different islands in skyblock, more plots in creative, better kits in KitPvP, buying power in factions, etc.

    All of this directly changes the way the player acts with the primary theme or gamemode of that server and is NOT cosmetic by any means. That being said, it's pay to win, but not nearly to the point as other servers. I think mojang would most likely have let this run for quite a while, but ItsHarry and ItsJerry are making the smart move and playing it safe, just in case.

    Edit: Lots of argument about /fly being cosmetical or not. First, let's look at what cosmetical means: Purely for looks, aesthetics, or anything similar. It doesn't affect the gameplay at all. Flying in lobby is cosmetic, because it doesn't change anything. Players can still get to the portal just as fast using the compass, and there's no reward for being able to fly around anywhere. Now, in survival and skyblock, it's game changing. Say you live up high in survival, and you fall off. Now, if you have /fly, and it's enabled, you won't take ANY damage. If you don't have fly, you die. This also allows players with fly to easily navigate the terrain much easier than any player could just by walking or by boat. Much faster, much easier, much less threatening. They can fly right over the enemies at night and be able to get around without problem. There's no way that fly in survival and skyblock can be "cosmetical". In lobbies it's fine, however.
