Many people thought it was supposed to be this way. Minecraft, after 11 years, has fixed this bug

A bug whose elimination has surprised a good portion of Minecraft players.

Minecraft came into the hands of players quite some time ago. The gameplay is not entirely free of bugs, but they have never overly hindered gameplay unless one focuses on the Bedrock version, whose problems can drive one crazy.

This time, however, we’re talking about a bug that has plagued Minecraft for a really long time. It’s one of those bugs where players begin to wonder if it was just meant to be.

A bug with the portal to the Nether

A user with the nickname SigmaHold shared a video that shows a comparison between what the entrance to the Nether looked like over the past years and what it looks like in the 1.20 Pre-release 1 update. The issue is the effect of moving through the portal, which was shown not only when entering, but also appearing on the other side.

It must be admitted that the effect, which began to intensify after entering the Nether, is a bit problematic – it hinders visibility, and on top of that it can mislead, suggesting that the player is about to return to the other side.

Oh wow I never knew that was a bug. This whole time I thought it’d actually just send me back through the portal if I didn’t move.

The bug had been in the game for more than 10 years, first appearing in version 1.3.1 with many other bugs. In version 1.20 Pre-release 1, a much smoother animation can be seen, which even signals that teleportation has been completed.

Players who comment on the change shown write that they have always thought that this is just the way it should be. A huge number of commenters are pleased with the change, while jokingly writing that it is the end of an era.
