Minecraft Live 2022 Sniffer Mob Vote Overwhelming Victory May Not Become Status Quo

most of MinecraftThe fun of comes from the freedom that players are given to shape the world that is presented to them. Nevertheless, MinecraftThe kingdom of is far from empty, and players regularly encounter various mobs that can be passive or dangerous. With Minecraft’s annual Live Mob Vote, players can decide on a new Mob to be added to the game, though the recent trend of Mobs winning by landslide has taken the excitement out of it.


the Minecraft Mob Vote is less fun when fans can predict which Mob will win days in advance. Mojang could fix this by revealing mobs much closer to when voting starts. With this strategy, fans are much more likely to vote based on their personal preferences rather than what their favorite YouTuber or the online community is saying. This would inject some mystery back into Mob Vote, and could lead to some exciting results.

Minecraft Live 2022 Mob Vote

In 2021, Allay claimed victory from Mob Vote. She won over players with her dancing skills and her ability to find things. This year, players had to choose between three very adorable Mobs. There was Rascal, a mob that lives deep underground and loves to play hide and seek. He rewards players who find him three times. Players can also vote for the Tuff Golem. Tuff Golems mostly act like statues, though they can hold objects and can wake up and walk.

This year’s Mob Vote winner was Sniffer. It’s not hard to see why, as the Sniffer becomes easy to love. Trackers come from eggs hidden underwater. Once they have hatched, the Sniffers will roam around and search for seeds. These seeds can be planted or harvested, depending on what the players prefer. Thanks to the utility of it, the Sniffer beat the Rascal and the Tuff Golem, but things happened in a way that took some of the fun out of it.

Landslide victories are no fun

The Sniffer didn’t just win, he won big, securing 55.1% of all votes. The mob in second place, Rascal, only managed to get 27.7% of the vote, while Tuff Golem got 17.2%. Before voting opened, Sniffer was already receiving support from popular YouTubers, which in turn sparked support from fans and smaller content creators. As a result, by the time the vote began, the turtle-shaped mob already had an ardent fan base behind it. While none of this is against the rules, it’s fun when a Mob steals the spotlight from the get-go, and it becomes obvious which one will win the vote.

This issue could be fixed if mobs were not revealed so soon. For a game as big as MinecraftSo, 48 hours is more than enough time for all three Mobs to be revealed simultaneously and for fans to vote. With the voting done quickly, fans will have to rely on their own judgment rather than turning to influencers and popular content creators to guide their decisions. This will help the Mob Vote results feel really unexpected as they will be based on individual preferences rather than groups coming together.

For players with a green thumb, the new Mob is probably a great addition to the game. Sniffer is likely to work his way into Minecraft with update 1.20 which will bring a host of features including new default skins, hanging signs as well as rafts and bamboo wood. There is still much more to be revealed about the massive update, which is expected to arrive in 2023.

Minecraft is available now on mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
