What is Block Farming
In Pixelworlds, block farming is when a player breaks ‘farmable’ blocks to get gems from them, and then replants the seeds from the blocks with the purpose of harvesting them again and repeating the process. The game has seen a few farmables, with the most famous ones being the Candy Cane Block, the Bling Bling Block, and the Spikebomb. This was the first method of farming in pixelworlds and was used for about a year in the game. however since the release of the nether update, fishing update, and now the mining update, block farming has not gotten a upgrade for years.
Why is Block Farming Depreciated?
Block farming is depreciated and will most probably never get an update ever again. This is because the developers have decided that they want players to use different more enganging types of farming such as nether, fishing, or mining. The reason behind this is because with block farming it is quite boring for players and can make the game feel very grindy when you are repeating the same exact actions with no variation. Another reason is because botters can more easily automate block farming due to it being a simple repetetive action of place, break, collect.
Pixelworlds is not supporting block farming because it is too easy for botters to exploit and also for normal players it can make the game less fun and more grind.
