‘Minecraft’ announces voting poll candidates for the next Mob

'Minecraft' announces voting poll candidates for the next Mob

Mojang’s Minecraft is getting ready for its live event this Saturday, which will involve an interactive segment from its fans to choose the next Mob.

The crowd-chosen mob Phantom will finally get a successor as Minecraft relives voting polls for its next Mob. The new addition to the gameplay will come as the game’s next major update, says GameRant

Minecraft continues to be a well-loved and “most most-played survival game.” Due to the game’s “limitless possibilities,” players are kept interested for more than a decade now.

Its fanbase community is vast but still closed-knit. Despite the addition of other titles to the franchise, such as Minecraft Dungeons, the hype on the original sandbox video game remains on a high.

Keeping fanbase in the loop

Perhaps one of the game’s strong suit is the support it let its players’ feel. Mojang and Microsoft acknowledge the community’s opinion to keep the game interesting.

By letting the players vote for the next Mob, they are felt more involved in the game’s progress and development. Of course, this also means that the chosen Mob will be a crowd favorite, eliminating any hit or miss probability.

Mojang has also done the same fan-interaction last year. The game makers let the players decide on the next “updated mountain biomes.”

In the running for the next Minecraft Mob

In an official statement, Mojang introduces the three Mobs in the running this Saturday. They are Moobloom, Iceologer, and Glow Squid.

Each Mob description reads:

  • Moobloom – This four-legged flower is a fan favorite from Minecraft Earth, and pretty much the opposite of hostile. Rumor has it that if Mooblooms move into Minecraft, they will be able to interact with bees but nobody has told me exactly how. It’s almost like they want it to be a surprise and they don’t trust me. That is just rude as I am a consummate professional. Do you know how much restraint it took for me to write move instead of moo-ve just now? Anyway, vote for the Moobloom if you want the Flower Forest biome to be more floral than ever!
  • Iceologer – This cold-hearted illager from Minecraft Dungeons thrives in snowy, icy, and rocky areas. If you vote for this hostile mob, they will move into the new mountain tops that tower over the Overworld. Do you really want that? These mountains are so tall that vegetation doesn’t grow on them – just spiky ice formations, rocks, and snow as far as the eye can see. The Iceologer would make these mountains even more challenging, since they don’t just want to hang out up there. Oh no, when you meet one of them they will hurl flying ice clouds at you. Vote for the Iceologer if you want to experience hardcore snowball fights with a stunning view!
  • Glow Squid – This shimmering sea creature also made its debut in Minecraft Earth, giving me the perfect opportunity to make a surf & turf joke but I won’t since I have already committed to writing a very serious article™. Let’s look at some factual facts instead of spending more time on puns, no matter how cleverly penned. The glow in Glow Squid doesn’t come from a bomb skin care routine but actually refers to the way it literally glows, in the same way that the Enderman’s eyes do. While we’re comparing this candidate to existing mobs, I can tell you that they are pretty similar to the squid that are already swimming around in Minecraft. They won’t attack players or other entities, but their glow is pretty atmospheric. That’s probably why they prefer dark bodies of water – the effect just isn’t the same in an already sun-drenched ocean. If you want to add more marine life to Minecraft and hasten the alleged squid uprising, vote for the Glow Squid!

Within this week, Mojang will be dropping more videos for players to know more about the three Mobs.

October 2020 Minecraft Live show

Moreover, players will be able to cast their votes on the Official Minecraft page. For the two Mobs that won’t be pick might likely be added in the future updates, as predicted by GameRant. 

The respective resources for each Mob might already be packed and ready, so the runners-up might still have a fighting chance.

The live stream will start at 12 ET on October 3. The show will go live on Minecraft.net/live. Aside from the official websites, fans can catch the show on Minecraft’s official pages: FacebookYouTube, and Twitch.
