Mojang needs validity check of Microsoft Accounts merged with game accounts on other systems. Active/deleted/invalid Microsoft Accounts should be unlinked. Check should occur at login universally. Should override logins by any independent service provider (like MSN, PSN, Nintendo, etc.) on the login page.
Invalid/deleted/expired Microsoft Accounts merged with a PS4 make online play with others impossible. The merge is irreversible, breaking the game permanently--even when removed and reloaded. No multiplayer play also means no multiplayer achievements, no co-op games, no coordinated builds, etc.
Irreversible bug with no workarounds & is known:
1) Game warns players a merge is permanent: "Be Careful!"
2) The merge is server archived, taking control from players.
3) Playstation denies control over the account, & Microsoft makes no comment. No one takes ownership of the problem = typical corporate bureaucracy triangulation BS.
Create a registry tracking purchase sources so disconnected devices lose access to purchases, not play.
EG: purchased skin on my Win10 account? Use it on a linked PS4; but unlinked, no. No purchase transfers. Additionally, add a link/unlink button at login so merges can be managed. (Multiple accounts, use a checkbox system, registry check at game load process. Host the registry online. Check fail = removal of that element of loaded game. Color coded frames for listed purchases could show which system account owns each purchase.
