Minecraft is a phenomenon that has grown much larger than its original purpose and there are entire communities and content creators devoted to the platform. With this in mind, Mojang has decided that making money off their game using Minecraft Servers will no longer be illegal, but now that every player has the opportunity, there will have to be some new rules.
Rules that will eliminate any sort of tiered service model built into servers and limit microtransactions to cosmetic changes only. Server hosts can still accept donations, sponsorship, and even in-game ads; but you cannot pay-to-win. Many current server hosts are pissed at this idea, claiming that even with all those monetization channels, they simply won't be able to afford to keep the servers online. All servers are expected to comply with the agreed upon EULA ruling by August 1st.
Most gamers hate the pay-to-win model, but in this case it seems to be something fans want... What do you think about the debate? Let us know in the comments.
