    Apparently Minecraft now has a license check that tells if your copy of the game illegitimate. Java Edition forces you to sign in to your Mojang account but now normal Minecraft checks if you've bought it. Thoughts?

    Firstly, Java Edition is normal Minecraft. Secondly, it's pretty much always had license verification, originally making you sign in to your Minecraft account (which is what you actually pay for) and more recently your Mojang account.

    Java Edition isn't Normal Minecraft anymore. Normal Minecraft is what was Pocket Edition, Windows 10 Edition, and the new versions of the XBOX One and Switch. Before you could download apks online and now license check is a thing

    No, because the Windows version still uses Java, and Pocket Edition is still Pocket Edition, and will be for a little while yet.

    Yes - the betas, but not the release. 'Java edition' still refers to the PC version, as of 6.8.17 (or 8.6.17 whatever).

    PC Minecraft came first. It has the most features, it has a full release, and is the most used. That qualifies it as being normal.

    Minecraft died for me so long ago. Microsoft bought it and it became trash then.

    You mean crossplay and playing with friends for free?

    Playing with friends was great before you had to sign in to stuff, now it's annoying.

    You never could play with your friends online without servers or third party services

    a) Plug PE was only like £2 b) you could play local multiplayer which was all that mattered for me because I suck at arranging things like that

    1) That's a third party service, and 2) You can still play locally, who ever told that you couldnt

    Erm... On the topic of the OP, and not the random Java vs Windows 10 argument going on... I don't understand why anybody would complain about something as simple as being asked to sign in. Aside from the pirates of course, but eh. Game devs shouldn't exactly be catering for them anyway.

    Every time they switch it up, forge has to redo how they avoid logins, whir he delays molders.

    Sounds like it's 3rd party.. Which means it's not important.
