The 13 Phases of the Minecraft Infection
Through my career as a Minecraft player I have recognized several basic stages an average player goes through when “infected”. I have a feeling that you will recognize these How to set up your Minecraft Server stages.
The Infection: Almost no one discovers Minecraft on their own. Most Minecraft players are introduced to the game by close frineds, or they here about it on the internet. I myself, discovered it after my friend and I played it at his house for hours. Many people are also “infected” by means of YouTube.
The Arrival: Now that the player has seen Minecraft, he will want it. Badly. Either by pirating (shun them) or by buying the game, the player will acquire it.
The Begining: The player will play Minecraft for the first time. The game will suck. The player will not know how to do a thing! I myself had to watch six YouTube videos just to figure out how to open up Minecraft and start a new world.
Who likes survival mode?: When a Minecraft player first starts he almost never plays survival. In his mind, survival is boring and hard, but creative is exciting and interesting. You can do anything! You can fly! You can kill creepers! You can make full diamond armor!
Creative gets Boring: The player has been playing Minecraft for about a week now. All he really does is build dirt houses and kill creepers with full armor and enchanted weapons. Its kinda fun… Well actually it’s getting really boring. The player isn’t very good, and there is no challenge for him. Its time to try out survival mode, right?
The Start of Survival: After getting bored of creative, many players will turn to survival. The player uses the internet and finds out how to play.The survival phase lasts for about a year.
The MADNESS: This is one of the worst stages of the Minecraft infection. When a player is well on in a survival map and dies chaos insues. ONe characteristic of this stage that will help you identify it is classified as the “engraged maniac howl”.
First Break: After dying and losing diamonds a player will often spend up to a month away from the game.
Cheating: After taking a break from the game, the player choses to try it out again. He will pretend he had never died, and hack his items back.
