    Back before 1.9, I was genuinely excited for every minecraft update. "Oh wow another update, can't wait for servers to use the new features to create cool new games" - I said. After 1.9 that excitement for updates turned into resentment. Many people would like for a simple gamerule to bring back 1.7 / 1.8 combat, and make it exactly as it was back in that period. Mods/Plugins are a massive part of minecraft, the beauty of the game is it's customizability, 1.9 took that away. If you add a gamerule you will bring back the beauty of the game and many players will come back.

    Will not happen ever. Mojang has repeated shown they have no interest in implementing anything to revert to the old versions.

    A gamerule would indeed be the best idea. Another commenter here, Camcamcam753, said, "Minecraft needs to look to the future, not go back on their decisions."

    This way, those PVP people can toggle the game to the old system and the rest of us can move on. 

    We certainly won't die without them, but it doesn't do any good to ignore this very reasonable request of a gamerule toggle.

    The Blocking button for pocket edition should be near the crouch and 1st person etc should be above near pause menu...

    I have been hoping for this since 1.8 and 1.9 released. The newer versions are unplayable.

    Do not remove the new combat entirely but just add a toggle.

    I agree, also I would like to have the 1.7 block-hit and other old animations, such as the smooth sneaking.

    It isn't a difficult thing. Thousands upon thousands of players DESPISE the 1.9 system. The people who hate it are players that are heavily invested in combat. For people like us, combat is the MOST IMPORTANT factor in the entire game, and the only reason we continue to play it. In 1.9, the skill-gap was heavily diminished by the new system, leading it to be way too easy and not very fun. It sucks that we're stuck 4 updates behind, just because the newer ones incorporate a combat system that we can't stand to use. Ideally, we'd like for the combat system to be reverted entirely, as it's just better plain and simple. But, a lot of people like the new system, and we understand that! [Removed attack on other people. Keep it chill, please ~ nb] Based on this, we're suggesting a gamerule be added so that the players can CHOOSE, which is fair! The only reason any 1.9+ players are complaining and saying we shouldn't are because they already got what they wanted. They don't want a fair compromise, because they already have what they want and have no reason to concede. However, if someone were to confront them and say "Either we revert the mechanics entirely, or we add a gamerule" then they would obviously opt for the gamerule. We feel the same way. It's a fair compromise that would make everyone happy, and there's just no reason to decline it. The fact Mojang and Microsoft have refused it for so long just shows how little they care about our community and that they'd rather neglect us than be fair.

    Please, please put this into the game. For so long those who like the old combat have been completed ignored by Mojang. Adding a gamerule would make it fair for nearly everyone. If you look at the biggest server on Minecraft right now, Hypixel, they support 1.8 - 1.12. The only reason why is due to the old combat system. Also, in their PVP gamemodes, they have plugins that revert the combat system back to what it was. That really should say something.

    I wish minecraft would go back to the days where it was simple, now there are new blocks and redstone things I don't even understand I get the 1.9 update because they thought it would be more 'realistic' but the game being simple made it shine :/ I wish they would just go back to 1.7-1.8

    Honestly what shocks me most about this idea is how uncreative 1.8- players are. They have a fantastic opportunity to craft a robust, highly-skilled combat system and they're settling for "just revert". Really disappointing.

    I agree but it should be like a gamerule, cause I like 1.9 combat for survival and 1.8 for pvp
