    Windows 10 needed to have Bedrock Edition as it was important for PC users to cross play with others. This is one of the ways to maximize profit since PC hadn't been touched yet. You won't see Mac or Linux users get bedrock since Windows 10 is owned by Microsoft and it encourages players to get Windows instead of Macbooks or Linux devices. This is the same exact case as Fortnite which has cross play with PC and phones (IOS only at the moment) and for Fortnite to maximize sales they have to release it on mobile (pretty much any 3rd party developer will do this for most of the games if its doable). Think of Microsoft as a 3rd party company when they have it on non-microsoft devices such as the Nintendo Switch and Phones. Now for the fact you can't win any games with MCPE is FALSE because it is possible to win a couple of games under certain circumstances. But the majority of the time you will lose which is where this hate is coming from. Certain Servers (even the featured servers) have a system where damage is done differently on each device (Windows 10 being lowest, Consoles in Middle, and MCPE with highest damage). I actually have lost to a MCPE player before due to this system on Windows 10 but it rarely happens for me since I know how to play Java edition. There are also servers which are aimed towards Mobile Devices such as BrokenLens (Biggest server that isn't featured) and Nethergames. Certain games are nerfed on windows 10 players and buffed on MCPE devices. Personally i perform much better when its all MCPE players on my Android Device. The ONLY reason they can do this is because of the lack of being a featured server. Featured Servers have to be fair to all cross platform users because where will Windows 10, and Consoles play if its all geared towards MCPE for instance. They cannot Discriminate a certain platform for a featured server as Microsoft needs money. Like I said it is possible to win certain games with Android/IOS: All team based games are possible to win with android/ios because you are working with other players who might happen to be using Windows 10 or Console. You are doomed if its only MCPE players on ur team so get yourself a friend who has Windows 10/Console and play with them in a party in games like Cake Wars. Block Hunt is possible to win on ur Android/IOS. One in the Quiver is actually possible to win but under an extreme circumstance must the players be bad in the game. Trust me its doable Ive gotten a Monster Kill (7 kills in a row) before on that game. Gladitators is not possible if your opponent is smart with his Windows 10/Console. This is because MCPE requires u to trap ur opponent in a corner to win. Dragon escape is IMPOSSIBLE due to players having better jumping controls so I would avoid that game at all costs. Skywars, SG or any Solo PVP game on a featured server is impossible to win because of the cross play. Trust me you cannot win most of the time. I know Casual Games are great on the phone such as Prison so it would be worth getting a Prison pass on Lifeboat. The only other games I know where you cannot win with MCPE are TNT run and even that pay to win game Inpvp has called Space Race. This is because Parkour sucks with touchscreen controls. The only worry Consoles(controllers) have are very good Windows 10 players such as me using Keyboard and Mouse. Theres two solutions you can do in order to win more games: one use a controller for ur phone instead. However this will not work on most phones and some phones such as the Moto E4 Plus have Partial Controller Support even for Xbox 360/Xbox One controllers. The other solution would be to only play on BrokenLens and Nethergames who are friendly toward MCPE users. That's about it for this long post just needed to get some things out of the way.

    I can’t really figure out what your suggestion is.  What I mostly see is a statement that mobile players are at a disadvantage, listing the disadvantage, and proving that others agree with you.  But what do you propose that Mojang do to level the playing field?

    This is how I feel PVPing with a trackpad.....LOL

    But in all seriousness, ClayGoddessSari is right, and honestly, I would suspect that not much can be done. You're basically complaining that Windows 10 users have more powerful devices and more control options. That's not their fault. They have an objectively better device that is capable of doing more things. Also, some of your suggestions are patently absurd. Unless I am very much out of the loop, Windows 10 users do not have built in auto clicker or have the ability to insta-break blocks (unless they are in creative, in which case, so do you).

    So I would recommend trimming down your list to things that might actually be possible to add, like making it easier to go into F5 mode or punching the air. Make specific recommendations that would work across all devices. If you can't do that, I'm afraid nobody will take your feedback seriously.

    Edit: I noticed you added some recommendations, but it's not specific. Tell us exactly how you would be able to move the screen and hit at the same time. Also, just making MCPE-only servers probably isn't going to happen, that would defeat the whole purpose of the Better Together update.

    Timbo303  i dont rlly wanna win games i dont like i wanna play games i like which are mostly pvp games and win at those soooo............ and idk what u mean about different damage when i get hit by a w10 with a fist i usually take 0.5-1.5 dmg same when i hit him... and for example games like block hunt yes u can win but u still have a disadvantadge becuase w10 can jump faster then u which is more speed and i find dragon escape easy u just run jump take shortcuts simple af. why do u think running and jumping is HARD ON MCPE ive done 4.7(cuz on BE ur faster then JE) block jumps thx to a friend who taught me how to parkour. im second on tnt run leaderboards and i get on the space race leaderboard like everytime from 1-4th place and plus even if i had a $10,000 dollar pc id still use my ipadmini becuase i like the touch experience.

    MacchuPicchu96  u can make it so you can only move the left or right of ur screen and a option to change it in settings from left to right and yes ik some of these stuff would not work on all devices but i just wanna have some fun on servers for once until something happens about it ima stick with fortnite mobile and if w10 holds down right click it auto places blocks soooo..... and i dont mean instantly break blocks i mean they can do it faster cuz on mobile u have to hard hold down on ur screen which is like a extra 0.3 sec but ya i edited it to be more *specific* now

    u can buy a controller or keyboard for mobile and u can play less competive gamemodes and u hit people without even looking at them directily plus if u couldnt join win 10 and others the player count for both would drop making win 10 pointless and java the only way to play on pc

    What happens when a moble player uses a keyboard/mouse. In order for this to happen all the servers would have to make more lobbys just for mobile also if they did this xbox would start the same argument against pc. If this problem means that much to you Thare are plenty of bluethooth keyboards mouse's and controllers most new xbox controllers have bult in bluethooth built in

    I play Xbox and die to PE player all the time. Why because they seem to just need to tap where you are one screen (or they are just hacking.) and Xbox players have to aim. If your playing PVP like on skyblock a PE player can just a camp on their island and peacefully tap wherever you are on their island with out moving too much and probably hitting you from a farther distance then you can. Then of course they must move after your the only neighbor left and they die to Xbox players better at PVP in general. I don’t care though because I suck at PVP. I don’t think we should stop it because all these platforms make up the thousands that go on so by deleting cross play we are making the amount of players on line in the servers decrease.

    In my opinion this is inaccurate as computers/laptops have the same advantage if both players are in the same place

    I agree with this and when it comes to parties like on Fortnite it'll just go to the hardest server if one of the players in it play on that device.
