    A lot of people like overpowered chests, but also a lot hate it.
    I think there are two main problems:
    1. Building bridges can be very difficult if there are people with punch bows on both sides.
    2. Fights in closed or large areas can take very long because sharpness 4/5 is no match against full enchanted diamond armor and a stack of golden apples.

    My idea to solve the first problem would be to add a lot more enderpearls, so it is less likely to get stuck on an island.

    For the second one I'm not really sure, making swords better would mean that if you don't find a chestplate you're immediately doomed.
    Maybe the durability of armor could be lower so it breaks after a few minutes. But that could encourage camping because people dont want to damage their armor.
    My favourite solution would be to make armor weaker (just protection 1 or 2), but those who like op now would probably hate that.

    I agree. OP mode is too easy on campers. Building a bridge towards someone with a punch 3 bow who kicks you back after every block you place is super annoying. Definitely needs more enderpearls. Maybe punch bows should have a very limited durability to encourage using them wisely instead of mindless arrow-spamming. Long fights are another thing, but since nerfing armor is probably against the spirit of OP mode maybe add other things to make them more interesting like poison potions or lingering potions of harming.

    Nah, I think they should increase the amount of blocks so you can build a super safe bridge multiple times

    Even if I have enough blocks, I often find it impossible to build save bridges on op. Also many people use the punch bow to keep you from building towards them.
    I think giving the punch bows a limited durability is a good idea, like the exploding bows in lucky islands.

    I actually deal with that a VERY WEIRD WAY. It's called doors. I place a door behind me so I can't get knocked away further then the bridge.

    Personally, I think the bow part of OP skywars is extremely fun. Games go quicker, and you don't ALWAYS get shot off.

    There is no "yes, make armor weaker" all the yes answers are for adding enderpearls, so I had to select the "no" answer.

    I think overpowered chests are good the way they are, let's just say it's all about luck :)
