    I completely agree with this. The 1 tick delay was a delightful and revolutionary functionality. I don't understand why they removed it.

    This would be really nice to have, and as the bulb is generally used for Redstone more often than just lighting, the faster tick speed would improve the useability of the block, for offsetting signals or not

    They should either do that or make every redstone component update on redstone ticks
    This means pistons should always update on 2 game ticks instead of 3
    If so make bedrock pistons update consistently at any time

    The given reason for this change was "we aim to make the [...] copper bulb [more consistent] with other blocks that react or change state when a connected redstone signal changes." yet pistons take 3 gameticks to extend and 0 gameticks to retract. If anything, keeping the copper bulb with a 1 gt delay (rather than the new 2 gt delay) would be more in-line with other blocks / give more options to the player.

    Thank you! Diversity of block's functions can only be a good thing, allowing for new contraptions and functions!

    Making a block that acts just a bit differently from others is how new Redstone ideas are galvanized, such as the functions of the target block or slime block. Please revert he copper bulb keep its 1 tick update delay instead of this new one so we can use then in our builds as such.
    Thank you!

    Please revert this change... It made the bulb especially useful...

    putting it more in line with other components makes it the same as the redstone components, why bother adding a new redstone block that's basically the same as the others?

    Please revert, the tick delay allowed for unique contraptions.

    There is no downside to having the copper bulb work on odd redstone ticks, just because it isn’t “conventional” doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing. Before the nerf, the redstone community was reinvigorated and created many cool contraptions, and it brought a fresh feel to both simple and complex redstone.

    I don't understand why it was changed in the first place. Wasn't the most praised feature of the Copper Bulbs the 1-tick delay? Why would they remove that?

    At least consider adding the same 1-tick functionality in another form in the game along with more transparent discussion with the community regarding the pros / cons of the choices being made to controversial changes.

    Thank you devs for all of the hard work

    the 1 tick delay on the copper bulb was a fantastic addition. The single tick offset provided a great way to build complex redstone contraptions without the added bulk and mess of the preexisting 1 tick delay options.

    Agreed, I really hope mojang listens on this one cause this change made me go back to the game.

    I agree, it's absurd to remove one of the most useful parts of this update, a clean and versatile way to get 1 tick delay.

    The copper bulb delay needs to be reverted back from two ticks to one tick...

    I was very excited about the potential builds the Copper Bulb's one-tick delay might enable, and am deeply disappointed to see it removed. The snapshot's patch notes don't clearly convey what the intent of this change is. The only explanation we've been given is that this is to make it "consistent with other blocks." But why does it need to be consistent with other blocks? Does this inconsistency actually detract from the game-play experience? Are you worried players who don't have to copy YouTube videos showing them how to generate odd-tick redstone pulses with scaffolding are having their creativity stifled?

    I agree! I said in another thread the copper bulb's 1gt activation delay adds flexibility and is full of potential for compact contraptions and flying machines, and thats only the beginning because the community has only had a couple weeks to play with the feature. Minecraft redstone has a lot of depth and a single block that introduces an odd gametick delay is a potently interesting tool that enhances the richness of existing tools for inventive players. Removing the 1gt activation delay reduces the functionality because it makes the bulb more similar to noteblocks or trapdoors. Please revert the change, bring back the novelty and flexibility of the bulb.

    If this doesn't get fixed, people will be outraged.

    Please revert this change, the one-tick delay is unique and extremely useful

    Yes please keep the unique way that the bulbs worked, it would greatly benefit all of the redstone world and give us new possibilities

    They could add a feature that a copper bulb has 1 tik per corrosion state. So no corrosion would be 1 tick. That would make it much more versatile for Redstone.

    Agreed. Changing a redstone block to be "more consistent with other similar blocks" is fundamentally bad for redstone. Technical Minecraft is only benefited by blocks having unique properties and behaviors.
