    it should be in the cobo center in Michigan

    • Tglvg11

      YES! Michigan for the win. Dude you just read my mind. The Detroit Cobo center is actually very awesome. It hosts the North American International Auto Show every year, and people come from all over the world to see it. If Minecon was there, You KNOW that people all over the world would come.

      • Christopher Cox

        i know i have been there

    okay, I don't appreciate america being called 'murica. we aren't all rednecks and idiots in america, we have normal people and intelligent people too. just because we have some people of lesser intelligence doesn't mean that we are ALL like that. I realize that 'us amuricans' tease europeans, but if you feel you're that much better then lead by an example and be the bigger person and don't stereotype.

    • FruitcakeCat63

      dude. corbin is the farthest thing from redneck a person can get -_-

      Grammar is important…


        (my apologies to all international readers, I love you all.)

    • The best thing about not being a news site with a small (in comparison to, say, Minecraft Forums) community is that we get to have a little bit of fun. We had our laughs on April Fools, but I guess this seeped in as well. And I know there are plenty of rednecks and intelligent people in America, because I live in the South 😛 But I would have to say 98% of the time we have a serious, on-topic tone that has come to be appreciated. But everyone has to have a little fun from time to time 😉

    Seattle FTW!

  • chris brown

    I hope its in florida

    Next year Minecon should be in London!
    They really should give people in the UK a chance to go.
    Whats so special about America anyway?

    • They might be focusing in areas that have the most Minecraft players. For example we get twice the amount of viewers from the United States than we do the UK 🙂
