One of the best things about Minecraft is the fact that its developers actually communicate with the player base and sometimes even let them decide what would be added to the next update. This is the purpose of the Minecraft Mob vote, which was held during the annual Minecraft events.

In the recently-concluded Minecraft Now live stream, Mojang has announced the date of the upcoming Minecraft Live event 2022 - it will be held on October 15, 2022. The 2022 mob vote is going to be a big part of it.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the three ways players can participate in the mob vote and what has changed.

How to vote in Minecraft Mob Vote 2022?

While the previous voting events in 2017, 2020, and 2021 were held in the form of a poll on the official Twitter account. As the vote was held on Twitter, it is easily abusable - players can create clone accounts and cheat the vote easily.

This year's event will feature completely different options:

Minecraft Launcher

This is the first and most common method of participation. All players who own Minecraft would get one vote each. This ensures that the vote would be fair and only Minecraft players who bought the game would be able to vote. Minecraft launcher method would be available for all PC users, both Bedrock and Java.

A new section titled “Minecraft Live” will be added below Minecraft Legends in the launcher and players will be able to vote straight from this tab.


This ensures players the ability to vote even if they don't have access to Minecraft on their devices. Players can just visit the official Minecraft website and log into their Microsoft account to vote.

Similar to the first method, this also eliminates clone accounts to ensure fair voting.

A special Bedrock Edition server

Bedrock players get it the best, as this is one of the most unique ways to handle the mob voting event so far. Players on the game’s Bedrock Edition will be able to join a unique server where they’ll be given the opportunity to vote for the mob they want to see in the game.

The Minecraft Now event showcases a small glimpse of this server - players are guided to a structure that looked like an End City.

Inside, there were multiple blocks with signs on them, each bearing the name of a preexisting mob from the game (showcased as an example). Each option had a lever over it, using which would let the player submit their vote.

What will be in the mob vote?

The upcoming mob candidates have not yet been revealed. However, as the event is just over a month away, this information is expected to be announced soon.

It is not the end even if your favorite mob loses the vote, it can still come back at a later date when the team has the time to add it.
