I recently was wondering when exactly I purchased Minecraft, and why. I began my little quest by searching for the confirmation E-Mail Mojang sent me right after I bought the game. It arrived on August 31, 2011. At this time, Beta 1.7.3 was the latest version of the game. The next major update was 1.8. (the so called adventure update)
Before I bought the game, I watched a German Let's Play series by Gronkh (http://www.youtube.com/user/Gronkh) for a couple of weeks, until I decided that I wanted to play the game myself. Back then, the price was only 15$ for the beta (now it's 20$, which is still rediciously cheap, considering all the awesome free updates).
So my question is: when did you buy Minecraft, and when?
I played from 1.2.5 . A friend showed mo the game but he had mods and I was thinking NEI is in the game and I started to play it. My first day was nice. I didn't use wiki for crafting just for the bed. The rest was my imagination. I crafted just armour and tools. I was searching on youtube about minecraft and I saw a lot of songs, gameplays and animations. Then I founded technic launcher and I started to play yogbox. Then hexxit started. I was playng it and I was in the firsts persons who played hexxit and I searched on youtube for series with it. I founde a guy named wtfG33k (Lewis) at episode 1. I watched his videos and he did some other series with other guys, Andy,DooDart,Nemsun,etc. And I subscribed to all of them and they started S2 of hexxit and a another season of Utopia3. Just now 2 weaks I won a gift code and now 5 days or some days I joined Utopia3. . And when I played vanilla I was to op with all the things exept farming
I started with with MC Classic, my friend showed me. i was instantly sold. when was that? 2011 2010? i dont know anymore. This was before Notch retired of all the millions he earned , lol, they started with the cool MC Beta I love the piston update most in Beta was 1.4 i think , that was one crazy time. Everyone went totally NUTS on the pistons and the most awesome creative creations were built.
MC for life. I just love all freeroam and " decide yourself what to do and where to go" games
