"Time to go, Allay" by @ZouChenyunfei on twitter

I was not emotionally ready for this...
Ikr now your making me regret my choice of allay
Now I want them all to have won
AddThemAlll was a thing
Someone in the comment was rooting for all of them to be added with quite a following on the mob vote
But that wasn't an official option I don't they'd do it because we complain otherwise we'd have moo blooms
We all already wanted them all to win
I wish all got in and I wish the glare was explained better. Jens mentioned in passing during mine on that int he future the glare might have even helped light up the dark places and honestly that affects the glare’s usefulness
But at the same time it could have been that the lighting up idea came after they made those mob vote animations.
We should have started a huge event and we split the vote perfectly even
Mojang, can you make the same mob vote again? Maybe in a few days ? So all the mobs are added.
Me too. Why not just add them all to this update mojang! This way everyone is happy.
Its sad of how the copper golem and the glare just have to accept their fates
Don't we all?
I wasn't ready for that
My guy. I'm too sober for that.
Ah. Do you require your brain to be artificially slowed down with an alcoholic substance to accept your eventual demise?
Something like that.
Demise? Nah. Existence?...
No, water does the job for me
Bro i just want funny block game not The Big Sad™
Rage, rage against the dying of the light
Yeah. They said they aren't coming back, too, so they'll just be fading memories now
NOT COMING BACK?!?!?!?!? NOW IM REALLY F##KING MAD
Actually Ulraf said all the unvoted mobs could be added at any time in a few years.
Maybe before, and definitely in biome votes, but not the iceologer and moobloom, and not this time. It's been made clear already
I think they can come back, because the swamp update lost to a biome vote and now it will be in the game anyways
They directly mentioned that they developed the three, but one would be developed further and the other two would be scrapped.
Why so? We can have all 3 with a little bit of modding
Modding will keep them alive. Where Mojang falls, modding will rise and give life to those forgotten.
We can hope they come back in another update.
Absolutely beautiful, I hoped for other mobs to appear that didn't win in previous votes. But it was still amazing
Why not have all three?
Because that would postpone the next update of 1.19, working on mobs actually takes a lot of time as they're not only designing the mob they're also balancing it coding it etc...... but hey when we do a mob vote the other ideas don't get scrapped... They get thrown back into the idea pool to be used later
Modders literally added all 3 a few hours after they were announced
Yeah but modders work on their own. Writing the code for these things is fairly quick, the hard part is getting all the leadership to agree, sorting out competing ideas, implementation details, affects on future company plans, QA testing, excess boring meetings, etc.
Adding a mob to the game is easy, removing one (if needed for some reason) is virtually impossible.
Modders are also held to a lower standard. If there’s a game breaking bug then it’s just a modding issue but if Mojang pushes it it’s a much better deal.
More this than the other things above, tbh
Microsoft Studios is the second richest game development team in the world.
Its very possible, to think that this is not just for marketing is wrong.
what if you would find them using the archeology feature but they would be destroyed
Like you would find their remains similar to how this animation did it but it would be really rare
One of the mobs in the very first mob votes came back as the grindstone. Unlikely that we will see the same mobs ever again, but their mechanics are likely to be seen one day
What how can the grindstone be a mob?
It's a block but its mechanics are from a mob that lost
What was the name of the mob?
The great hunger. Weird name but that's what it was
The phantom was called the “monster of the skies” it would probably have a different name when put in the game
It does the same thing, removing enchantments, which was the mob’s gimmick.
The swamp is a biomme update, which all will be done eventually, mob votes however only 1 will ever be in minecraft
[well, Ulraf said this](https://twitter.com/_Ulraf_/status/1448730804654387208?s=20) so there is still hope, especially because the comunity really liked them and did that #GiveUsAllThree thing.. the Minecraft developers many times listen to the comunity so there is still hope for them
And if the devs don't do anything else with them some modder can add them to at least Java edition. Maybe bedrock idk how active the mod community is for it
For bedrock it’s more add-ons than mods kinda like a texture pack with functionalities
The swamp update doesn't prove anything because they said they were gonna update the biomes that didn't win either way, it was just a priority vote
Well they said the other biome updates that didn’t win would still appear later, but they said nothing of the sorts about mob votes, the opposite actually
Where do you find like list of all those that didn't win? I never follow up anything live with updates ect I just play the game so idk them
[This section on the Minecraft wiki](https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Mob#Unimplemented_mobs) gives the current list.
That said: the list only has mobs that lost direct votes. When they had biome updates up for voting, each biome update was also planned to include a mob as well; Meerkats, Termites, Ostriches and Vultures. Since the biomes those mobs were in weren't voted to get an update, they can also be deemed as "not winning".
*cough* *cough* piss cow *cough*
i really really wanted the flower cow. thought it was amazingly cute
Yeah, unfortunately green tellietubbie thought that a retextured squid was better.
Flower cows are way better than glow squids
Why? I'm not familiar with what flower cows could have done. But I do like the glow ink sacs abilities with lighting up frames and signs.
I’d assume they could be milked for suspicious stew, like a mooshroom for mushroom stew
Suspicious stews are borderline useless. Glow ink is much better and practical.
for sure. i just thought the cows were cute... it would be better than finding random glow ink in caves... i dont even think ive seen a live glowsquid yet
Gone but not forgotten is the perfect phrase
- Mary Poppins
this is so sad
i hope that someday they will reunite again
Mod creators: My time has come
Someone made a Bedrock mod of the copper golem like an hour after it was first announced. So they're already on it!
Maybe one day we'll see the other 2 in vanilla, though.
Edit: [Well, they're all already done. Not surprised.](https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/what-are-you-voting-for)
Mod idea: The Forgotten Realm. A purgatory version of the Nether filled with all the unused mobs. Red dragons, giant zombies, Illusioner, The Killer Bunny, etc.
I'm terrible at coding but now I want to learn just to make this.
I want to see this become an update.
Just a mod would make more sense.
the final update
Raids involving Iceologers, Illusioners and another new Illager would be very chilling! (No pun intended)
That’s pretty cool, I wouldn’t like this as a game update but as you say, a mod would be amazing
You should post this to r/minecraftsuggestions
Hey everyone, this is my first Minecraft live. Jesus Christ are they all this depressing.
one was annoying and had way more potential (im talking about you, **phantom**) another was about what biome should be updated, kinda liked it
***and then there was this mob vote where a green blob that likes speedrunning sabotaged the votes and put in the worst mob in the entire game in***
so, no they aren't all depressing, just bad and annoying, except the biome vote, that can stay
>one was annoying and had way more potential (im talking about you, **phantom**)
The phantom is such an underbaked mob. It's just annoying but without actually being much of a threat. And they completely failed to take into account servers with the sleep mode (so all of them) which means that they only ever really spawn when only one player is online.
Yeah, its not the phantoms fault, it could have been great but it was poorly implemented imo.
Glow squid is the same. Could have been [great](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fl5SBgJNwXs) but didn't live up to potential.
how could you possibly implement the glow squid that way?
For a start, the squid could have a flashing animated texture like in the video. It could cause mobs in a radius to stop moving and look at it for a time. Glow ink could be more powerful if it was clickable on any block like redstone and caused the block to give of light.
sure, I was more referring to the getting completely distracted / entranced by the glowsquid
i think that was just a joke about how pretty it was
Being within a certain radius of a glow squid whilst looking at it has a chance to give players (and mobs, except they don't need to look at it as that would probably be hard to track) an effect which freezes them in place. Maybe also an effect which is like blindness but it is a white halo around the edges of your screen so you only see the middle of the screen, i.e. the glowsquid.
>***and then there was this mob vote where a green blob that likes speedrunning sabotaged the votes***
I feel like I'm missing some context here.
a green blob that likes cheating at speedruns
nope this one just hit different because they were all just such great choices
Don't worry, they'll meet again soon with the help of the modding community and become together again forever once the time comes.
Oh, there's literally already [a mod](https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/what-are-you-voting-for) that adds them all.
Oh thank god
Now I'm imagining a continuation of the video where an extra side door is opened and the mobs wake up and make their way towards it.
Completely possible since their ideas don't get scrapped..... They usually get put back into the idea pit to be used later why do you think we're getting a swamp update.... I mean the mountains won the biome vote versus the swamp and we still got both
Why do we even have a vote when they can just throw all 3 in? It clearly doesn't require many resources if there's already a mod for it this quickly.
Because they’re cheap. 12 year old modders can do it but Mojang pretends like it is impossible. They want a tribalistic voting system so that we fight with each other.
At least the two didn’t die alone
Nah the copper golem died first so the glare died alone
... I was in the 11 percent of people who voted for the glare.
The glare had to be alone in a dark area to :(
It feels like listening to sweden after quitting gaming for 3 years.
I still wish we could have gotten all 3. Why, Mojang? Why did you have to do this to us? Why did you have to make them all so damn cute as well? Now I feel less like I rescued one of them from the abyss, and more like I’ve abandoned two.
yeah, my thoughts exactly, they are so different with so many applications I wish we could get all three
Seems like the only reason is to create player engagement on their event and polls. It would cost them nearly nothing to add everything.
"yeah we'll just delete these other 2 mobs that we designed, programmed, and that a lot of people wanted"
I really don't understand this method
Yeah, jens even said they have a prototype mob for each one working in-game. This means that, even if the mob isn't animated or even has an actual model yet, they had the AI done, to an extent.
Its to attract people to the live event, not really to affect the game.
Why cant mojang just make all three? Not 24h after they announced them, modders made all three.
Someone said that it has to do with balancing the mobs or something. I’m still confused.
They definitely could, but the mob vote seems to be more to attract people to the event than to actually change the game.
Modding is very different from actual game design. Modders don’t have to worry about if their creation is optimized to run on the worst of smartphones, modders don’t have to create the same mob across two entirely different engines, modders don’t have to keep the mobs balanced in comparison to other game mechanics. Yes, there are some very talented modders out there, but you are really underestimating the amount of work it takes.
\*Me, hugging a map-art of the copper Golem*: They stole it from me, Carmine! Took it! Today! That was today!
Three were made. Two to die, one to remain alone
Good way to show how crual the curent voting systeem is
NEVER FORGET WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
COPPER GOLEM IM STILL WAITING FOR YOU, DONT WORRY
just some lightning and he will be ok
I really wanted the copper golem. I never use copper for much, and having a ton of cute little guys running around my base sounds sick.
Most Modders take like 1 day to add all three of them, but we can only choose one? Unfair
That's what I was thinking. I think they just use these votes to get more eyes on their convention. This is the best selling game of all time, and they could totally "afford" to implement three NPCs if they wanted, that some high schooler who just picked up a Java book could do in a month.
The only reason I could think is that the devs add a lot more to the mobs then what they say during the vid
why do i started crying, this is just a game, i can't... hold it in
*go to the corner, sit there, and think about my actions*
it's not mine, the op is in the title
Yeah, Ima go to twitter now
Did you survive?
he went to the dark side
I really hope they pull a swamp biome in the future and bring these guys back in a future update, I could definitely see them doing the copper golem in a redstone update if it ever happens, though the glares fate seems sealed seeing as it would have been most fitted for the wilds update but thats now for the allay.
Ads a few ground bushes in the new birch forest and you could find glare hiding in there.
I am crying about the fact they died, please they might have been teleported to a different universe where they won?
"We hope you come back to visit us" ...
Stop, I can’t
I actually cried watching this. Mojang had better add the Glare and Copper golem in another update
Glare could come in the Wild update or even the Deep Dark update. Copper boi could come in the Archeology update.
And those are quite possibilities but the archeology update could also be in the same as the wild update there just wouldn't be any point of reshowing it since they've already shown it once before
But you aren't completely wrong that they will eventually come back to the ideas of the copper Golem and possibly the glare, I mean just look at the biome vote with the mountains and the swamps... The mountains won and we got that but we're also getting the swamp update next
Damn now you're making me regret picking allay
[Link to tweet](https://twitter.com/ZouChenyunfei/status/1449455243641589762?t=PCWsVKTsAqtl6pbguhqQmw&s=19)
Was it worth it?
Give me golem or give me death
I still really don't get Mojang's deal with "here's three concepts a whole bunch of people want BUT WE'LL ONLY ADD ONE." It's like some kinda weird FOMO shit to drive up engagement.
On the upside, all the missing stuff they can't be bothered to add will just get added by modders in like a week with twice the functionality anyway.
Very Sad 😢 they voted allay and leave glare and copper Golem alone
what else can we do, equal the votes
Yes. I wonder what they'd do then
hippity hoppity the next vote is now an equality
This was really nice but the end 🥺.
Hope it won't take too long for the rest to join the Allay.
but then one of them will be left alone ;\~;
Ngl, this entire thing they've done over the last few years of "Here's 3 things we could add to the game that would all stand to add interesting mechanics and playability to the game... But you only get one and the others will likely never be seen again outside of mods" is such a dumb way to handle updates.
All you do is disappoint 2/3s of the fan base and waste time making ideas that you never use
I'm crying right now, literally
will copper buttons still be added though? what do i do with 4 stacks of copper blocks?
They won’t. It was a two for one package, and therefore we get neither the copper golem or the copper button
Copper golem my beloved ;-;
how to make laggyboye cry 101
why don't mojang add all of them? it will be perfect if they add all
Can we trade the phantom and the bat for these guys?
man why can’t they just add all 3? Then everyone would be happy
At least I think the Glare would fit in PERFECTLY with a swamp update and the Copper Golem with a archeology update
My sweet baby golem :(
My bush... My previously floating bush...
this: ❤️ the fan base:🤬🤬😡😡🤬🤬😡😡
On the bright side maybe the copper golom will be added in Minecraft dungeons.
how the fuck did copper golem not win
People assumed it was gonna be a item duper when the details of it where more complicated then that but people only heard what they wanted to hear and now we will end out with a mob which will probably never be used after a little bit of hype off launch
This got tears in my eyes.
EDIT: No, I'm not joking. I actually have tears in my eyes, and my mom's asking what's wrong.
Im imagining you furiously typing this as your mom tries to get you to say what's wrong.
Fuck you, you made me cry :(
First i was like awww:) ant then i was like aww:(
don't do this to me it's to sad stop
Makes me regret my decision of voting allay,these animations are enough to make a grown man cry
Never thought winning could be so sad. You will be missed Glare and Copper Golem. Maybe one day...
why the hell cant we have all 3 they would all be nice addictions to the game
This isn't goodbye, but a see you soon.
Frogs are proof that they'll come back someday.
Why can't they just add all of the mobs we have to vote for like bruh.
This made me cry
they should do a vote for the next mob out of all the mobs that didn’t win. so we get a chance for old mobs to come back
So it'll be a vote between Iceologer, Moobloom, Copper Golem, and Glare? Obv it'll have 2 winners
I don’t think the Minecraft community understands how the allay works, I think most players assume you can give it netherite and it will return after 10 seconds with a stack of it
THE GLARE IS SOOOO CUTE :(
Why must you hurt me in this way?
Mojang if you are reading this, please one day add all the mobs which didnt win the vote(even if it was just for one day). I want to see them in the game
plz MOJANG bring both of them back
just look at this animation
too sed :(
Why don’t they just add them all? Like why does it need to be 1 at a time? You make content for us then cut 2/3s of it.
Mojang could add all 3 mobs, but why would they do that? If they add 1 mob that doesn't do anything, people still would defend them, as if Mojang was a small company with 2 devs
minecraft votings are just anti-democratic propaganda at this point 😢
Mojang need to make the next mob vote mobs ugly so I don't feel sad when they loose
