First of all, I do not believe that KAB is bad in any way, nor am I here to say that classic is superior and scrap KAB all together because that's just silly. I just want to try my best at explaining why I believe that so many classic players are complaining about beta. To be quite honest, I am jealous of the players that enjoy beta. I've tried my best to enjoy it as much as many of them do, or work up the courage to say that KAB is better than classic, which in some ways it is, but I don't feel adamant classic players will ever enjoy it. I know the main response to these type of comments is "Beta is beta" or "Beta is always subject to change" or even, my favorite, "Deal with it," or "Respect the developers, they are trying their best," as I'm sure they are. I'm 100% sure that the development team is working as hard as they can to create a wonderful game that they envisioned. I don't have a problem with any of that. They are welcome to do what they want with something they have created. Will it be successful? It's hard to tell, but I don't see classic players playing beta as much as classic. Perhaps classic players are blind to the fact that beta is good and we're all just delusional, but I really doubt that's the case. We're gamers, just like the rest of you. We care about this game and we just want the best for it. Some of us are selfish and just want what we want, but that's not always the case. I completely understand why people like beta and I'm fine with it's existence. The world of development has changed so much in the past few years. One thing that Minecraft has definitely done is bring on a whole new development process. It's a community built process. At the same time it may be good, I can understand that it's a double-edged sword. On one hand, you have this community constantly giving you feedback, alpha and beta testing your game for you, pointing out all the bugs, and hoping that it will succeed. On the other hand, you have so many suggestions and ideas buzzed around that it can be overwhelming at times. Nothing you do will ever come without criticisms, good and bad. For this reason, I can understand why it's so hard to please everyone. Promises of bison, ballistas, fire arrows, and so much more excited me and I'm sure many others. Classic was already so amazing and there was STILL MORE coming. Then beta came and that all changed to resentment. Notched climbing, movement, and almost everything from classic, removed or tweaked. Personally, I don't feel betrayed, but disappointed. Not in the developers, but my own cynicism. I'm sure I don't speak for all classic players but perhaps some. I'm still trying to figure out what else to say as I had a lot more to say, so some of this will be edited in the future when I can put it more eloquently.
