    Or at the very least not having to port forward servers, cause that's complicated.

    Just have it work like it does on xbox, could even use xbox live. If they still wanted to make money off of it they could still require a xbox gold membership

    Currently, opening a world to LAN can be port forwarded, which would achieve this, but whenever you connect to any server, like google, your router makes a small port forward so that your browser can get the replies. Doing the same thing with Minecraft LAN servers wouldn't be difficult. All Microsoft would have to host would be the p2p connection server which only does work when people are first connecting, then the rest would be p2p.

    WebRTC uses this, and requires a server to connect clients, but works w/o a server after connection. Microsoft isn't doing this because it isn't monetarily viable. (Would make realms less popular), while on Xbox they can ask for an X Box Live subscription.
