    So everyone hates how long the eggwars spawn protection is. Having players constantly punch you while you are trying to break their egg is annoying and accomplishes nothing. I have two possible ways to make the spawn protection less annoying:

    1. A couple seconds of weakness on respawn
    With this players still have the option to buy weapons to fight the attacker or run away but deal the same amount of damage as others can deal to them. Now this would eliminate the chance of then knocking the player off but usually by the time the attacker kills them and they respawn they are already secured in a corner around the egg.

    2. Slight Spawn delay
    This would be more aimed at team eggwars butt basically is like how in money walls and blockwars that when you die you must wait a certain amount of time before respawning. 5 seconds would be enough in most cases and maybe too much for solo.
    EDIT: @awesomebutter234 suggested respawns that start out instant then increment every time you die. I think this idea has the added bonus of preventing kit farming (as it would add to your respawn time)

    I doubt they are simply going to shorten or remove the spawn protection so I think this is the next best thing.

    Thanks for reading :D

    1.Don't like this one.
    2. I like this one but not a set amount of time needed to spawn after you die. How about every time you die on your island your time waiting is increased by 2-3?(first time being instant)

    That would make it a whole lot better and even have the added bonus of making kit farming less appealing :D

    I don't want spawn protection removed. I know it's annoying, but it's easy to deal with.

    This isn't suggesting to remove spawn protection but to have certain things in place to make it less annoying :p

    Team of 4 with eggcracker and you are the only one left standing. Definitely not easy.

    the idea is you bring obsidian to place around yourself as you break the egg

    It's actually quite easy. Assuming they upgraded their gold generator, grab 25 gold and block yourself in chests ;)

    Ehh that's really expensive and by the time you break yourself out your opponent has already run off to break your egg. Also usually I don't even bother covering my own egg with obsidian as I try to end the game quickly.

    I feel the same about you're frustation! I was constantly knocked of while I tried to break the egg. Maybe you should just remove spawn protection because if the players buys a sword the egg is broken & if the player goes straight for the fight, the egg breaking player could simply just run away. This repeats over and over again and spawn protection should be removed. :p

    I have done this before, but considering people with eggcracker were quickly breaking my armor, and trying to make me misplace blocks it 's definitely not easy.

    Same thing as above.

    This sounds great, But I think this would be unfair when you just want to protect your egg.
    Its pretty annoying when they gonna spam click you I know, But when the duration of the potion is longer than 30/20 seconds it will be annoying to.

    I personally love the spawn protection
    in both hands it makes the attacker have a nice challenge and the defenders struggling to protect themselves/ the egg
    But here is some tips to prevent this from happening
    Build up make some distance so they can't mine your blocks under you
    get a decent or GREAT pickaxe and a punch bow to buy you some time
    Also get yourself a teammate to distract the other team if possible

    This is how the egg layout usually is

    -----------[Obsidian]-----
    ---[Obsidian]---[Obsidian]---
    ---[Obsidian]---[Obsidian]---

    so the enemy team must have one block on the floor to actually punch/reach you
    but by the time they do get a block you probably already destroyed their egg

    Side Note: Some maps have the egg elevated or a small distance from spawn, go from behind and build up so you mine the egg secretly (maps: Kingdom and Treehouse)

    Like a few people have already said, you can just place obsidian around yourself, I'd just say it's a part of the game.
