Which three are the most important/fun to you?

Exploring. Worlds, structures, dungeons. Give me loot and secrets to find!
Combat. Getting the best gear so I can kick the most ass. Give me a challenge!
Hoarding. I'll strip mine the world if I have to. Give me a use for all this stuff!
Community. Working with others is what multiplayer's about. Give me incentive!
Creation. I want to build great things. Give me more features for my builds!
Redstone. I want to do science. Give me more game mechanics!
Goals. Earning achievements, reaching the endgame. Give me more of that!

Poll #3: What Does Survival Mean to You?

Post by haxxorzd00d » 04 Aug 2017, 10:45

My third and final poll to help shape the future of Escapecraft!

People play Minecraft for all sorts of reasons. Aside from mini-games, even players who play "survival" have a number of motivations. I'm trying to figure out what they are and which ones are peoples' priorities.

You can choose three of the options from the poll above. Choose your top three, the three that are the most important factors to you - the aspects of multiplayer Minecraft that you enjoy the most and that you would to see more of.

I chose 3, 4, and 5. But TBH 1, and 2 would make great additions assuming interest, time, and that 3 - 5 were properly sorted first. IMO at least.

1, 4, 5 for me. Exploration isn't much of a factor in vanilla, but there are modpacks that have really cool dungeon stuff to them that i enjoy. Community is obvious, when i was on a lot i spent half my time just standing around and chatting. Never really did many builds with other players though, other than working on the TNA spawn and doing a tiny bit to deri's castle that is used as Horizon's spawn. Creation is the main reason I bought MC in the first place, collecting resources is just a means to that end. I've never enjoyed the actual process of farming/mining.

Going with community, creation, and redstone. I like building things and making puzzles and contraptions. But I never really got into all the work of survival. However, lately as I've come back to the game I've been finding myself enjoying mining more. Who knows.

Community always was and still is the biggest factor for me though.

Exploring, Community and Creation (Redstone a close 4th). I'd pick all the options if i could. Speaking of Redstone/mechanics that tekkit server we once had was a big hit at the time, another modern world/map for that stuff could be great.

Exploring, Community, Creation! Let us all work on the greatest world together. I am not much of a PvP player myself. I will probably die a lot so let us instead work together instead of against each other. I always liked the different dungeons and puzzles around the world, hopefully there will be more for me to beat. I will challenge anyone to play against them in a puzzle. If it is possible maybe add something to keep track of that progress. Like using the advancements to give rewards when beating a dungeon. I am sure that that will stimulate more players to go in them.
