It is a perk... for ELITES. A lot of people play ES and if you got rid of it and replaced it with survival, what many people want to have, which is why they buy elite ... the server isn't going to have the money to do all this cool stuff which you want for it to do. Because people will stop BUYING IT It would be difficult gathering blocks, same as ES... but it is a SURVIVAL.... you have to survive by getting blocks and minerals to live. And if you like survival so much, but don't want to pay 100$ just wait for a sale… or ask someone to buy it for you... or participate in a giveaway... honestly it isn't that hard! As all of this negative input I rate this a -1 Plus, if you say elites only bought elite for w/e guess what? Who CARES. Elites are under-perked and this is the only thing stopping elite from becoming a vip… because vip are OVERPERKED. And many people agree on that.
