The 5 most annoying features of Minecraft in 2022

Minecraft is an incredibly enjoyable game for millions of people around the world, but it is not without its flaws. There are still more than a few annoying or disturbing features that most gamers can do without.

These Minecraft features come in different varieties: big, small, and everywhere. This covers mobs, blocks, user experience, bugs, and much more.

While Mojang has made strides in 2022 to improve player satisfaction, all games will continue to have their shortcomings. This in no way tarnishes the reputation that Minecraft has earned over the years.

Below, players can find a list of some of the most frustrating features currently in the game.

Curse Enchantments, Combat Update, and 3 Other Annoying Features Still Present as of Minecraft 1.19 Update

1) Java/Bedrock Parity

While it makes sense that the Java and Bedrock editions of Minecraft have their differences, some of them are really confusing and disturbing. For example, the Hardcore mode is still missing in the Bedrock Edition, while it has been in the Java Edition for years.

Other issues include differences in block and entity properties, mobs spawning and behavior, and more. Cheats that may work in Java may not work in Bedrock, creating something of a knowledge gap between players.

The lack of true cross-play between versions outside of certain multiplayer servers is also a sticking point worth noting.


2) Curse Charms

While they can be fun when pranking other players, curse enchantments are completely negative. These enchantments actively work against players in different capacities.

Curse of Binding prevents players from unequipping a piece of gear enchanted with the curse. Meanwhile, Curse of Vanishing prohibits players from picking up a curse-enchanted item when they die.

There are no advantages or compensations; curse enchantments simply exist to make a player’s life more difficult.

3) Ghosts

While there are more than a few mobs that are considered a nuisance in Minecraft, ghosts tend to rank pretty high on most players’ lists. They may not explode like vines, but they are terribly inconvenient for players who have been exploring or building for days.

Ghosts appear after a player hasn’t slept for three days in the game, which can happen faster than you’d expect. These pesky mobs fly overhead and swoop down to attack players, making them hard to hit. Worse still, a hit from a ghost can cause players to take a bad fall, further compounding the issues.


4) The combat upgrade

Minecraft’s combat system was originally quite simple. One click counts as a melee attack. However, in 2016, the Combat Update was released. Over the years, it has been a polarizing point of contention within the community.

Specifically, the part of the update that a lot of players are having trouble with is the attack cooldown. Fast attacking players now deal reduced damage, as a fully charged sweep attack takes longer to charge up.

Many preferred the pre-1.9 combat, where every attack counted and players could attack quickly and deal high damage.

5) 1.19.1 Chat reporting system

While it was introduced without much fanfare, update 1.19.1 introduced a new way to report player abuse via the chat feature. This was intended to reduce the talk of malicious players, but the results in practice have been a bit more complicated.

Some players have posted videos claiming they were permanently banned from the game for saying innocuous words that could not even remotely be considered harmful.

This has led to speculation that the reporting system is being abused by certain players who simply wish to cause trouble for others. Many wonder if Mojang’s community guidelines need to be more specific to justify the chat report feature.

In any case, players hope that this issue will be resolved as soon as possible, as it has generated a lot of controversy in a very short time.
