Why Minecraft community is dissatisfied with The Wild Update 

Ever since Minecraft was created, the player base has always played a huge role in the development of game updates. Developers love getting feedback from the large community and incorporating their ideas and suggestions into updates.

Sadly, Mojang has left some players unsatisfied with the last few updates, and the upcoming Wild update seems to be rubbing salt in the wound. It all started in 2020 when Mojang announced their biggest and most ambitious project yet, the Caves & Cliffs update.

Fans have wanted a major cave renovation for years, and Mojang finally decided to deliver it alongside a spectacular mountain reclamation. Unfortunately, the global pandemic has slowed the development of the Caves & Cliffs update dramatically, forcing the developers to split the update and delay some features.

If you count split updates, you can say we had to get two updates first. Throw away the stuff we should have and you won’t get a wild update

Although the pandemic situation has improved for the better, Mojang will still skip some features that were expected to be revealed for The Wild Update.

The removal of expected features 1.19 made Minecraft players angry

At Minecraft Live 2021, Mojang announced the Wild Update and revealed cool features like frogs, ancient cities, fireflies, mangroves, etc. The title of the update alone made players feel see expectations for an update that focuses on bringing the wilderness into the Underworld.

@Minecraft I don’t think 1.19 should be called a “wild update” YET! Before anyone gets mad, keep in mind that these biomes were promised to be added at a later date! And the WILD update would be the perfect opportunity to… let’s go mojang? What happened?

The Wild update is supposed to be an update focused on diversifying and improving some of the Overworld’s biomes. This is a big statement and many players are happy to hear this as some of the Overworld biomes have not received any updates for a long time.

With the first pre-release announcement, these expectations went up in smoke as the only new biomes completed for The Wild Update were deep dark caves and mangrove swamps. These two biomes are not enough to justify the “wildness” that should have come to The Wild Update.


During the live stream, Mojang showcased some of the concept art for update 1.19, including a refurbished birch grove. The developers were quiet about it until the recent Ask Mojang episode. They claim, “concept art is not a commitment,” and said the new birch forest is not part of the Minecraft 1.19 update. This comment angered many fans by saying that Mojang shouldn’t have shared concept art if they weren’t planning on adding them to Minecraft.

In the same episode of Ask Mojang, Mojang also announced the removal of fireflies from The Wild Update. The reason for this decision is that some variation of the firefly is poisonous to frogs. Initially, the developers had the idea of ​​​​adding fireflies as a food source for frogs, but now they have been completely abandoned.

The absence of fireflies and birch forests is just the tip of the iceberg. The Wild update failed to live up to a number of expectations, including the pack and archeology. While it is true that Mojang never promised these features, their actions have caused Minecraft players to have high expectations for The Wild Update, leading to dissatisfaction with the final product.
