    So, as people have split opinions on pearls in normal eggwars, I have other ideas to help fix the issue of people camping on their islands.

    1. Speed Potions

    For maybe 25 diamonds, add a speed 5 potion that lasts for 10 seconds. Hopefully, you'll be able to make a significant length bridge and get largely there

    2. TNT Launching

    This is a long shot, but maybe add TNT that hits only yourself, not your teammates (to prevent team trolling) for 32 gold. It is not auto-ignite, a pressure plate can be purchased for 5 iron.

    3. Teleport to Center

    For 100 diamonds, add a piece of redstone (IDK what :D) that teleports all players to center, including your team. It's risky to use, as you can be teleported to the very edge of middle, in which you can easily be knocked off. It's not a deathmatch, so you can easily leave mid after use, but it gives a chance to kill the campers and invade.

    4. Beam

    Suggested by @awesomebutter234 , he said there should be encouragement for campers to come to mid. I think after 30 minutes, a beam should spawn at mid. Requiring 300 diamonds to power up, once charged it will open a team selector. TnT will slowly destroy the island, with the exception of the iron generator, the shop, and the blocks around them. (That includes the egg!) You also can't build around this small block, forcing you to get out of there.

    I cant think of more ideas right now, let me know if you have more!

    1. That also encourages running.
    2.It's far too unpredictable, you would need multiple pressure plates and when you step on one the time to step on the other would be too long, and if there is multiple tnt how could you stop team killing. V2.0, how would you stop the fall damage if it did work, I would not want to launch myself and then die due to the camper.
    3. Dying isn't that big of a deal if you still have your egg,campers destroy their bridge after they get diamonds.

    1. Test speed 5 in the PvP duels. You have no control whatsoever unless you're sneaking.
    2. It only hits the placer, team killing is impossible.
    3. If you have speed 5, you can get to the island in about 10-20 seconds on Underdasea.

    You don't need total control when you are running away, you only need to chose a direction and run.
    2. You ignored the other points I made.
    3.By the time you have 25 diamonds, the camper will be back at their base with a broken bridge and a running diamond gen.
    4.If you have 25 diamond why would you spend it on a 10 second potion instead of armor, a bow, a pick axe, upgrading your gen, or buying a weapon?

    By the time you have already bought it the camper is drowning in diamonds, also a camper protects their egg your leather or chain armor with a wooden or stone sword might not be enough. Also what if the camper is smart and buys a bow as soon as they get the chance, so now bridging even with speed is not an option.

    Do you have any suggestions that forces a camper to come to mid?(other than island shrink).

    I honestly think all these suggestions are good, just need some adjustment and modifications. I don't understand why almost every suggestion for Eggwars has negitave responses. I like this ideas and with some changes to them I think they'd be a good addition. Especially since camping has become a major problem, there's people trying to find solutions to these problems. I think people need to start respecting that.

    There's a difference between getting a negative response(your plan sucks), and somebody telling you the flaws of the plan(this and this and this does not work because of x reason).The poster did not provide any points that defended their suggestion so how would you change the suggestion to make it better?

    The number 4 idea is really good, I would reduce the price a little bit though.

    I think we should have a timer that would start a deathmatch in 20 minutes starting from when the game started. When that happenes, everyone is teleported to the center, has 5 seconds of invincibility, and their egg gets destroyed (if it already wasn't). After the 5 seconds, people can attack and kill. That would make the game go faster and stop camping.

    What about the people that were not camping, they kept their egg fair and square only to have it destroyed because they took too long to get to the camper.

    They could probably then quickly get to the island in time to destroy their egg.

    Or we could make anti-camping maps. For me, anti camping maps would be: close to center and other islands, no gold gen or diamond gen (just iron gen level 3), and small islands (island where you could be knocked off the edge with a full charge with a punch 1 bow). In this case though, the gens at the center would be: diamond would be level 3 and gold would be level 4. This would stop camping and make the game go much faster too.

    my ideas:
    a shop in mid that sells pearls after 50mins
    island generators all turn off + chests empty
    make shields cheaper, anti knockback potions? (its an entity attribute you can set but maybe not cause of hacking misinterpretation)
    a block other than obsidian you could buy that is immune to explosions for building safe bridge.

    1.
    i like the speed potion idea but i'm imaging someone using safewalk and autobuild to use it to just run across the entire map at insane speeds
    2.
    yeah it would be nice to be able to have some form of a cannon
    3.
    teleporting to the centre idk, it helps yeah but it doesn't stop them from dying with egg and just regearing after they lose especially if they were hard camping with no bridge.
    4.
    i like the idea of destroying an entire base but imagine this on rome or storm it would need to be balanced per map etc.
    maybe it could work if you payed a load in middle to destroy the generators or villager on an island it would work better imo.

    I don't really like the beam idea.I just can't explain why but I don't.
