Affects Version/s: Minecraft 1.8.1
Fix Version/s: None
The slowness and speed status effects don't stack
I expected that combining for instance speed 1 and slowness 1 would lead to a total speed boost of 5%
What happened was that the latest effect that was triggered was the only that had an effect on the game.
