Hey guys!


Been listening to the podcast for a while and got super excited when I saw a new episode this morning.


Do you think bows will become obsolete when 1.14 drops?


I personally feel like that unless bows get a new use (they will be underused compared to crossbows.) Maybe they could be made into grappling guns or something like that?


Love the podcast and videos and as always: keep up the good work!

Hello Joel and Pix!


I’ve been listening to your podcasts all the time during my Minecraft sessions.


Do you think every mob should have a purpose?


Surprisingly, not many people talk about the usefulness of each mob. A recent trend is that the new mobs don’t really have a purpose in survival: Polar Bears, Foxes, Pandas etc. These mobs don’t drop a resource that advances your survival, unlike cows dropping leather, sheep providing wool, or phantoms dropping membranes. I’m a firm believer that every feature should have a purpose.


Are mobs added only for ambience and immersion worth updates?
