The official website[1] for the event announced that they would be celebrating the official launch of the game:

The first MineCon is sure to blow away all of your expectations. Set in the fantastic city of Las Vegas, we are ready to have the ultimate “block” party.

On November 10th, 2011, Hat Films released a MineCon Trailer which received over 1.2 million views in eight years (shown below). Since 2017, MineCon has taken the form of an interactive live stream.

Low-blow for Pewdiepie here. I mean, granted not as controversial as….other things that happened this month, but still.

like, making fun of kids and other players attending a fucking convention for a game they like? that's the real 'cringe' if anything, as well as just anyone still fucking using that garbage meme.
