Minecraft’s block-carrying Endermen: “A horrible idea”

Those scary new Endermen that were only just introduced to Minecraft have already had their powers turned down a notch (ha. Geddit?), which shouldn’t make them less terrifying, but will make them less annoying. Subtle difference, that – but a crucial one.

“By the way, I will nerf the endermen block carrying. It was a horrible idea.” So tweets Notch, who – let’s face it – really is the only person who can say these things.

The Endermen, introduced as part of the recent, massive 1.8 update, only come out at night, and were created to remove some of the player’s “sense of control” in the game. It looks like they had a little too much control, however – their pesky block-removing habit leaving unsightly holes in player-constructed designs.

We’re guessing the feature – but not the mob – will be amended in the upcoming 1.9 update.
