Hello CubeCrafters!

We've just updated our biggest game on our network, EggWars! - We've made changes to our Bedrock EggWars rank which adds new exclusive cosmetics including generator skins. We've also added so many new maps for both networks, and we've added new game features, tweaks, map balances and tweaks and general Quality of Life features. This update is massive, read below to learn more! 🎉


💡 Features & Tweaks - Emeralds, Favourite items, Enchants & Kits!

To build the foundation of this update, we worked with our EggWars focus group team and community suggestions to create a good balance of new features, fixes & Quality of Life.

We've made some changes to Emeralds. We've removed the radius detector on Emerald generators, so they naturally generate Emeralds without you needing to be close to the generator. We've changed it so you can upgrade Emerald generators and most maps have more than 1 Emerald generator, one will always be level 1. We've also merged the Emerald shop into the main EggWars shop, into the appropriate categories.

We've also added enchantments for armour! - You can buff up your armour even more if you have Emerald tokens.

There are new Emerald token specific items:
  • Ender chest - This allows you or your team to have your own private inventory.
  • Elytra - One flight usage, so use it wisely.
  • High-efficiency pickaxe - This allows you to break through blocks like butter.
  • Sharpness sword & axe - This will allow you to slash your enemies even faster.
Along with the Emerald tweaks. We've also added a new system into our EggWars shop which will change your EggWars experience forever! Introducing Favourite shop items! - You can now select your most used items and have them pinned at the bottom of the EggWars shop. You have 3 load-outs, one for each gamemode: Normal, Overpowered & Hardcore. Your favourite items are saved and carried over into the same gamemode. You can add, remove or tweak your favourite items whenever!

We've added 2 new kits to EggWars. One for Java and one for Bedrock:
  • Java - Chicken Legs - Gives Speed 2 for 10 seconds on respawn
  • Bedrock - Healer - Gives golden apples


🌍 New maps!

What would a game update be without some maps!? We've added 6 brand NEW and epic maps to our EggWars gamemode for both Java & Bedrock.

🛒 EggWars Rank revamp - New cosmetics & Generator Skins!

As you know this past year we've made great strides in the quality of our cosmetics, we want to bring our ranks up to speed with this quality level as well, starting with EggWars.

We've introduced a brand new loot type, generator skins! These skins can sync to the drops of the tokens and when you upgrade them far enough they overload and have fancy animations in response to this, they also take on cool appearances depending on which type of generator it is.

You can purchase our Bedrock EggWars Rank here!

In addition to generator skins we've also added new egg break messages, these are selectable from the in-game loot menu allowing you to customize your egg break message in chat for other players to see.

Taking advantage of the situation xd
could you move the store on the icy map, solo eggwars? people get into the villager and it is impossible to hit them with some shop skins (bedrock) because there is a wall behind

Ender chest - This allows you or your team to have your own private inventory.
Not a fan of this. Allows for a lot of camping in team Eggwars with barely any risk to it.
Elytra - One flight usage, so use it wisely.
Could have been a great item to combat campers that bowspam. Sadly I doubt I'll see it being used much, because it's gated behind emeralds.
Introducing Favourite shop items! - You can now select your most used items and have them pinned at the bottom of the EggWars shop.
Love it! The update has made for a much more fast paced game, which is basically the only thing I wanted out of an Eggwars update.

- Generators now generating 10 seconds before the game starts.
Haven't tried Hardcore yet, but I'm hoping it has become a bit more fun instead of just a waiting game on gens with the changed to the generator speeds. That said, diamond is way too much and way too fast right now. Didn't think it needed to be changed and now it's just way too easy to get stacked up in no time at all.

- Removed Weakness & Slowness potions.
Fantastic. These lasted way too long in Solo games.

- Spiced up particles floating around the egg on Java.
Maybe nitpicky, but the fireworks on the eggs and the particles on gens are a bit .. too much.

It has some lovely QoL additions and changes and I love the new solo map (both beautiful and fun to play on). But just like with the last update, my biggest gripe remains the desperate need to make emeralds a thing in Eggwars. Most solo Eggwars games I play last between the 5 and 10 minutes, emerals will not be used.

The new ability is pretty much a waste of coins. A very small change of receiving 1 emerald for breaking an egg? Even when you go around and break all eggs you will still need to be lucky to even get 1 emerald out of it. And some of these items cost a ridiculous amount of emeralds.

Assuming someone rushes to mid and proceeds to sit down on 1 emerald gen, they will need 5 minutes to upgrade it to the next level... as mentioned, the game will already be close to finished at that point (in solo eggwars).

I just don't understand the focus on emeralds, once again. Why was it still such a big focus for the team? The last update didn't go over too well and was heavily focused on emeralds too. What made the team decide to once again try to push emeralds?

I feel like it won't be used much... and when it is going to be used, it will be in teammode by a party that will just take joy out of endlessly steamrolling the other teams without breaking eggs... but that's just my feelings about this.

Overall I really do think this update has added some nice features that I'll benefit from. I don't think I will see much of the emeralds unless I decide to camp for it, which just isn't gonna happen.
