    Looking on another thread about bedrock, I remebered factions. I suggest adding in a slime block(sponge block,iron block, basically any decent looking blast proof-ish block) that can't be broken with pickaxes, or any other tools. The only way these blocks can be broken is by placing a tnt to blow them up. I'm not sure what to make the blast resistance be(how many blasts can it take before it breaks), but the cost should be a more than obby. I doubt this would be OP since all you need to do is place the tnt, and since it auto ignites it's guaranteed to blow up. Also this would give more reasons to buy tnt other than for camping, or sky bombing purposes.

    I like the idea but on the othersite it is a little bit hard because you need to break block with tnt

    Tnt auto ignites, it's like blockwars. If you plant a tnt on their defense they lose those resources as soon as it's placed.

    Not bad of an idea but then, you could just make a sky base with this and have a bunch of tnt along with it...
    It does add some more strategy though so I give it a +1

    I like the idea, it would be nice to make it so that people can't just win a game with a pick! I agree with you that it should be more expensive! I hope this idea gets implemented :-D

    If the skybase is made out of this do the same thing you would do to any other skybase, blow it down.

    All you would have to do is alternate with this and obby around your egg; it will be so much more annoying.

    I both like & dislike this idea.

    I like it because it would add another interesting & efficient way of defending your egg - obby is good but pointless without someone on your team constantly checking nobody is digging it up every so often. This would remove the need to do that, so you can gear up without having to worry so much. It would also feel awesome to blow the egg shell up! It'd almost be like cracking a safe in a bank raid to get to the valuable eggy goodness inside xD (that's probably the most corny thing I've said all week :L)

    On the other hand, I dislike it because in short: it completely ruins sneak attempts.

    Long version? Think about a situation like this:

    Let's say you are playing on Teaparty, your egg is gone and you are the sole survivor of your team. You are facing a full team of campers who are gearing up and have broken the bridge. They have a guard with a punch bow who occasionally checks the chair to make sure nobody is bridging across - so you decide a glass skybridge from the base next door is your best bet.

    You manage to sneak inside unnoticed and you go to dig up the egg but, oh noes! There's the undiggable defence (let's call it slime) that needs to be blown apart with TNT. There's no other choice so BOOM, the first layer of defences are gone, but that wasn't exactly subtle buddy. Every single happy camper in the base is now rushing upstairs to investigate the mahoosive explosion above their heads, and when they see yo booty they ain't gonna give you a cosy hug and a warm welcome, oh no no....

    Behind the layer of slime it turns out they also put an extra layer of obby, so you can't just smash the egg real quick. You now have to kill every single enemy in the base (while they are respawning and spamming you with their fists) just to stay alive, and then your only option is to block yourself in and then dig the egg. So you boss it, kill them all and block yourself in. But after all that, one of them has the egg cracker kit so you cant dig the egg in peace! They spam hit you over and over until you're deader than a dodo's doornail. Game over :(

    In that situation you deserve the win after outsmarting the enemy, but just because your sneak attempt was ruined by placing TNT there's little chance you can win from there.

    P.S Sorry for writing so much xD thnx for reading

    Bring some obsidian to block yourself kn would have won the day. Since it does ruin sneak attempts and can be annoying how about a price raise? Or even make it cost items that player drop.

    It looks great on paper, but something tells me this well end badly. For instance, people could block people inside generators and if they don't have TnT they're stuck. A solution is that it can only be placed within 5 blocks of the egg and the own team can break it. It would also finally solve the issue of the I can't get the egg.

    Trapping team in this specific block + Team troll = Complete waste of a game.

    The item is too out of theme from eggwars and its strategical use can compromise the game greatly.
    TNT is not a common resource and ends up being expensive in Normal.
    Imagine going to an egg and finding this block.
    You'd always have that feeling you have to bring some tnt with you. Sp00ky.
    It just adds so many unpredictable changes to the gameplay that just won't make eggwars feel the same anymore.

    Eggwars, even though might seem a really complicated-coded and highly-scripted game (and it kinda is) a big parts of its mechanics are vanilla. There are no special blocks or special tools (aside from OP that has custom enchants) in the game so far and having this weird block being there would be really weird and not feel normal.

    Key word: could
    Careful with what you say, people might spend 10 minutes ranting about how this is incorrect.

    You really want me to?
    Ok I'll do it as short as possible

    You're asking too much, especially when bridging to campers. If you get near their egg they will pillar up to you to get rid of you.
    They "could" bomb it, but as soon as it blows up they would replace it again.
    They can do plenty of things to prevent you from bombing their egg from above.
