    Hey everyone! I'd like to start a forum series where we discuss our favorite strategies for the different egg wars maps. Since I prefer solo, and it's more controllable by the individual players, we will be doing solo maps only. As an avid player myself, I love teaching newblets new strategies for more potent competition later on. The layout will go like this:

    Map of the Day is
    What's your favorite kit?
    What's your go-to strategy?
    Do you even protect your egg?
    Any special tips for someone new to this map?

    You will answer all 4 questions pertaining to the map of the day, and we will discuss each other's strategies while hopefully learning new tips and tricks!

    So what do you think? 10 positive votes will be enough to start the series I believe!

    Map of the Day is All of them (I don't always play eggwars, so I don't remember their names :p)
    What's your favorite kit? Egg armour, as you don't need to get armour
    What's your go-to strategy? Sneaking in, the best way to do it is at night so they can't see you.
    Do you even protect your egg? Yes, first with sandstone, then with Obby
    Any special tips for someone new to this map? Better to sneak ;)

    Map of the day: N/A; tips below apply to any map. I'm not a frequent eggwars player but I play it for daily challenges.
    Favorite kit: Money bags (that 10 iron you start with is invaluable to so many openings, whether it's rushing to enemies, defending, or quickly bridging to mid with 20 blocks from the 10 iron)
    Go-to: Varies. If I'm solo, start with leather + wood sword and rush to enemies. If I'm in team, same thing but I rush to mid instead.
    Protect my egg: Before I execute the rush, I use some sandstone to block the egg. If I have enough to go for obsidian and I know I have to transition to mid or late game, then I'll do that. Otherwise, sandstone is enough.
    Extra tips: General PvP tips from my SG guide below (couple edits for eggwars; applies to all PvP games):

    -Practice first in PvP or other games that have respawn. It's recommended to know how to bow and sword since most PvP games are essentially "hardcore" mode (1 life only). Though you respawn in eggwars if your egg is alive, you will be far behind and in a very tight spot if you die.
    -Get to know maps you play on. Know what they have, where the generators are, and bases.
    -Look and listen for enemy players and terrain. What are they doing? Eating? Rushing? Building where to? Running toward you? Do you hear footsteps? Get your bow and sword ready for a fight. Know how to counter their actions and their openings.
    -Double check first for enemy players before buying items, sorting your inventory, building blocks, or doing anything risky. You never want to take a few free hits because you were off-guard.
    -Always time attacks, unless you know spamclicking will ensure your target will get knocked into an environmental hazard such as the void or off a large cliff.
    -Note that the bow and projectiles such as snowballs/epearls lose accuracy when moving. These are most accurate when standing still. Strafing as usual while shooting these will slightly penalize your accuracy but it's not much.
    -Learn from your mistakes. What did you do wrong? What did your opponent do?
    -Know what foods to eat while out of combat or before battle.
    -Try not to start the fight in a corner or in hard-to-maneuver terrain.
    -Always stay calm. Don't panic. Staying calm will help you execute your plan and not rush it.
    -Organize your hotbar and know how many arrows you have left to fire. You don't want to equip your bow and find yourself out of ammo. Your off-hand should have the following (from most effective to least):
    shield -> gapple -> cooked pork/steak -> any food -> nothing.

    My favorite map is Area51, I always choose Normal-items with Double Health or Overpowered with Normal Health :)
    If I choose Normal-items I use the kit Healer or Egg-Armor.
    But when I choose Overpowered, I use the kit Healer or the Golden pickaxe.
    I make myself strong, this implies:

    - 2 sets of armor (8 iron)
    - Stone sword (32 iron)
    - Stone axe (48 iron)
    - Diamond pickaxe (10 gold)
    - Some food (5 steak = 25 iron)
    - 2 stacks of Building blocks (1 stack iron)

    And then I build towards other islands. However, building up, so they cann't go directly to our island.
    Never :)
    Don't go first to the middle, but always to other islands.
    I always go to the middle as have other arches and that kind of stuff :)
