    No lol I would have said "the" US if that's what I meant. That is why I left out "the". It's "us" as in "we the people", as in "Pocketminers"' as in "you and I", as in... Hopefully NOW you get the point..In any case, I also hate people who think that 'the' US is means the whole world but I can see how your brain got flustered and overwhelmed by the wording. ^_^

    To be very clear, and not even Shoghicp may realize this just yet, Mojang/MSFT will have very clear anticompetition clauses and he will not be able of contributing any code to Pocketmine.

    As a community we should start looking into Pocketmine licensing, and start forming a community to take on continued development.

    If you see at his work on Mojang... It's everything done for servers: Colored chat, custom kick messages... He will not leave us ;) and we're already a community that can contribute to the development of PocketMine-MP, just get rid at Github and you can help ;)

    I don't think so. Unless he starts copying MCPE code to PocketMine (which is impossible, because they are just in different languages), Microsoft/Mojang has no right to stripe his freedom to publish. Allowing @shoghicp develop PocketMine, as long as he doesn't infringe others' rights in an unlawful way, is a basic human right.

    I have 2 sides:
    1. Mojang AB must be hiring Shoghi for something..., same as Gamecrafter
    2. Congrats! That such a good opportunity for him!

    Anyway, Microsoft Corporations ∩ Mojang AB, makes me remembering my Math Test,
    I got 7,80.

    eh, i could see this going either way...

    either they hired shoghi to cripple development on pocketmine, as pocketmine is the only real competition to Realms, which is essentially their long term continual monetization strategy for minecraft

    OR

    they snatched him up because they want to (eventually) adopt and support PM - as they did with Dinnerbone and bukkit. (my history might be a bit off on that one)

    either way, it's kind of a win-win for them AND shoghi, as he is obviously a talented developer, and given that he built PM from the ground up (twice) for $0 profit, he's obviously driven to contribute to Minecraft. Pay him a salary, give him some time to get acquainted with things and he'll be killing it. no question.

    I doubt it's to destroy PocketMine, since not only have the MCPE team helped shoghi with multiplayer additions in the past, but so far in his few weeks in the office, he has already added custom kick messages (for PocketMine's use only really) and colored chat (which can really only be used by mods and servers). They probably hired him for his networking skills, esp with the MCPE protocol. So he may be working to fix protocol bugs and/or make Realms better/faster/etc. Only time will tell though.

    agreed... shoghi is an exceptionally talented developer and he's obviously very familiar with PE - i was a bit surprised they didn't pick him up when they acquired tommaso - but that's neither here nor there.

    still, from a strictly economic perspective, free online multiplayer doesn't really do them any favours when they're also planning to provide that service on a monthly subscription - though, as someone who has been playing PC games online for the last ~20 years - that's how it's always been. back to quake 1 or even duke3d (direct dialup) online was always an added bonus and it soon became the focus (quake2 rocket arena)

    anyway, i'll just put my tinfoil hat back on, climb into my faraday cage and have a nap ;)

    i'm really hoping to see PM elevated by this - i think the PE community would benefit greatly overall, and a healthy online community - paid or not - is a huge draw for gamers.

    yeah, i took a break from hosting - shut down for about 2 months.

    it was frustrating to operate when i kinda needed things to just work without so much intervention (busy life these days)... things seem to have stabilized so now that i can offer a decent experience to my reddit communities without having to be on top of the console, we're back in operation... all thanks to shoghi!

    i hope they're paying him well ;)
