Mojang wants to know what you want in Minecraft 1.9

Back in the April Fool's snapshot that was released on April 1st, a QR code was hidden that revealed Minecraft 1.9 would be named "The Combat Update." But initial reactions to a combat-based update were less than exciting - many worried that Mojang would change the well-known 'spam-clicking-a-player-until-they-die' method or something similar. Nathan Adams wrote this post on the Minecraft subreddit:
I've had a lot of anxious comments since the 1.9 theme announcement, stuff like "they're just going to ruin it and make it easy" and then "they're just going to ruin it and make it too hard", or "they're going to remove spam clicking and remove all skill" followed by "I hope to hell they remove spam clicking". Basically, lots of worried people who like fighting in Minecraft and want to continue hugging people with weaponry.

I want everybody who cares to tell me what they most like about the current combat mechanics in Minecraft, what you hate the most, what kind of combat you prefer doing and why (killing mobs to survive, team based pvp, custom maps, whatever) and ideally any / all suggestions you have for us to make it more fun.

The Reddit thread already has dozens of great ideas - such as varying damage based on where a player was hit, doging attacks, more weapons, and more. Leave an idea for Mojang at the source link, and let us know in the comments what you would add!

I want something better! Instead of the old "click click click click click click guy with best armor wins" system I want something good. The old PVP system makes no sense strategically, instead of having the advantage when you are above the other player it's when you're below. Mobs are weak, mojang! You neutered the skeleton and creeper by making them stop strafing! Fix this, please.

dark souls style pvp would be so easy to do but the spam clicking took a lot of effort.

I love the idea of different areas causing more or less damage. I also think only the piece of amour that is hit should take any damage.

As awesome as that would be, there's too many technical limitations between platforms to make cross-play possible.

This area actually has been ventured into before. Vendetta Online can be play ed on either mobile or PC. The mobile players can play with with PCB players, and vice versa. It isn't a matter of technical limitations, but of difference in coding language and exclusives. It is more than possible that a version of minecraft could come out that does this, people have already done it.

That is not true. I can see the near-future very clearly, and I wouls have to say that within two years, Minecraft: PC and Minecraft: PE will be playable together. Shoghi Cervantes Pueyo (shoghicp), the creator and main developer of PocketMine, has created a PocketMine plugin that lets PC players walk around on PE servers. While walking around might not seem that exciting, the thing is that Shoghi has been so busy with other things in his life to work on BigBrother (A.K.A. add block placing/breaking, PvP, etc.). The most significant thing that's happened in his life lately, is that he is now working at Mojang as their PE networking guy. Hmm, soumds to me like he's going to be working on cross-version compatibility soon. Just my thoughts on it.

I want weak spots on armour and body that take more damage than other spots. And please add some type of game rule that adds a "agility bar" and some weapons take more agility than others and you need to wait to hit more!
