only thing i miss in MC is some purpose :/ smarter mobs would be cool either. surviving usually means dig hole and u are safe (i mean 'normal' mode, not survival)
I wish he made it so that you can't just put a block of dirt back into its place but instead had to construct a door or wall etc... Also companions!!! this game would totally work within a battlezone scheme.

i suggested on MC forum to make these SSSSSSSS mobs blow up near ur crib to make hole for another mobs. so u need to 'upgrade' ur crib with better blocks (whats the point of so many block types if they are used just for sandbox, just to get different color ? :/)
ppl didnt like it coz it would make game too difficult >>
same about backpacks (reducing ridiculous inventory size)
same about more mobs
what a pussies

After some more research I've decided I'm not going to buy this game even though it looks fun. Mainly for these reasons:
A) it's made in java B) community it attracts is mostly on the level of a facebook/myspace hybrid C) these "pay for alpha get whole thing later" games seem like a scam to me, developer has no obligation to finish the product. Looking at other games with this model like f.e. Cortex Command it's clear that this fact is here.
Maybe if it manages to reach a stable stage that offers more gameplay than plain worlds with random monster spawns. And smoth, don't even bother asking me to stop posting in this thread. It's about minecraft and I wrote something about minecraft.

I had the same stance originally before I tried Minecraft. But it's good enough to pay for already right now. It's not like most alpha games which are blatantly unfinished unplayable shit, and they're like "LOL! GIVE US MONEY FOR POOP!" Minecraft is ALOT of fun already. Like, steal a small portion of your life fun. I have a problem with paying for a game and getting a half finished tech demo and the promise that it will one day be a game, I don't have a problem paying for a good game with the promise that it will one day be better than it already is.
Minecraft isn't finished in the eyes of the developer, but most indie companies would have already shipped it. It's more in a beta development cycle so he can release patches that suck, and when everyone says "OMGZORS! YOU BROKE THE GAME!" he can say "BETA LOL!" The patches are somewhat unstable, but they get fixed after a few days usually, and meh, the game's in beta, what are you gonna do?
A is arbitrary, what language a game is coded in has no bearing on gameplay.
B is untrue. There's a giant Xchan player base, team liquid has a large player base, something awful has a nearly 1000 page thread about it. There are facebook/myspace retards that play the game, but you don't just wander into some random multiplayer server and deal with whatever's there, there's no server browser yet, you have to find a community that runs a server before you can even play. Just be more discretionary on who's server you'll join and you'll never encounter those types. I play primarily on the team liquid server, you have to PM the owner for access, and retards get banned in short order.
I didn't play a huge amount of Clonk, but in my experience Clonk is better for giving you clear objectives and ambitious goals, where as mine craft is better for raw creativity and compelling exploration. With Clonk I never really felt like "wow, I wonder what I will encounter next", not to say it wasn't strategic or fun, just, mine craft is better for that element of things.
I find dwarf fortress has a level of depth that neither game has, but minecraft is more relaxing and chilled that dwarf fortress is, and the interface with the world is much much smoother.
anyways yeah i agree about more dangerous enemies, or even just more variations of enemies in general. im optimistic though, im sure more dangerous things will be added in future (personally i think it would be awesome of pumpkins attacked at night)
