Since what I think to be the most recent update, a new feature was added that's pretty annoying. If you ask the agent to do something impossible (such as destroy a block where there is no block), it will look left and right, then shrug. It takes a full 3 seconds for every command of code it has to skip. This is frustrating in that it now takes longer for the agent to not do something than it would to do it. (Like, much longer.)
I imagine the idea is to encourage kids to use if conditions, but I'm not even sure it's good coding practice to add a line of code where previously it wasn't necessary. (Plus, I use ME to teach code to kids with no prior knowledge, and it needs to be as minimally frustrating as possible.)
