Hey Stanley! I've been having lots of trouble playing cubecraft eggwars as well. I think that since there's been a giant increase in players recently, the servers may be getting overloaded. Of course this is just my guess but yeah, I'd love to know if there is a solution to this. 😄
I think it's just a glitch. It's happened to me quite a few times and the only real solution to this is protect your egg and don't die. I agree that it's really annoying however it's hard to recreate the glitch to bug report it.
I don't know which version this post was made for but on java edition you earn xp and points. I feel like this could be a very fun addition. Adding on, if there were achievement cage/skins that would be pretty cool. For example you could get a new cage for 100 wins, 500 wins, 1k wins, and so on.
In the latest eggwars update I noticed that Gold Ore was implemented. I've seen a few players use it in game however it feels like its a waste of gold to buy. The only real advantage I see would be that it takes slightly longer to mine but if you have a diamond pickaxe, it doesn't matter whether...
It's a good idea overall but most people don't use trackers unless there's only one person/team which is camping or hiding somewhere. And in that case, they would already know who they are looking for.
