    Hello CubeCrafters,

    We haven't had an EggWars update in a long time, so today I am here with an eggcellent EggWars update. Yay! :) This update brings new content such as maps and achievements, as well as quality of life features and bug fixes!


    New shop look.png

    We've made the shop look even better. We've changed a lot of the colours to help make them more readable. We've also standardised the colours to look more like the menus that we use around the rest of the network.
    The armour section of the shop has also seen a large rework. Inside the armour shop you can now see the armour that you currently have equipped on the left of the menu. Purchasing armour will now automatically equip it (if it's better than the armour that you currently have equipped), so that should mean that shopping now is much faster!

    new achievements.png

    Ever thought our achievements are too easy? Well try some of these new achievements out!

    Chicken legs - Win a game of solo EggWars without sprinting.
    Eggcellent - Win a game of solo EggWars without dying.
    You're an egg cracker - Break 10 eggs in solo EggWars.
    Egg smasher - Break 100 eggs in solo EggWars.
    You're an eggcellent pro - Break 1000 eggs in solo EggWars.

    Team EggWars
    Egg splatter - Eliminate an entire team, with your egg already broken.
    Eggsplosive - Get a multi-kill with TNT.
    Omelette maker - Break 10 eggs in team EggWars.

    Those poor eggs... - Break 1000 eggs in team EggWars.


    New maps.png

    New maps anyone? With this EggWars update we're bringing you 6 brand NEW maps! 5 Team and 1 Solo, each with a different design, team size and gaming experience. Will you be able to play them all?

    Team EggWars - Orc (Team of 9)

    Let me orc to you about how good this map is.

    Team EggWars - Kong (Team of 2)

    Team EggWars - Shipwreck (Team of 2)

    Try not to desert your egg...


    Kit tweaks.png

    We applied some balancing tweaks to our EggWars kits.

    Egg Shell - Diorite has been replace with End Stone. End Stone is much tougher and makes the initial defence of your egg much stronger.

    Rabbit - Replaced carrots with golden carrots. We felt the carrots were doing nothing as you could buy them for the shop for so little, and so have buffed them to golden carrots as they give you a lot of saturation.

    Money Bags - Increased the amount of Iron to 15. After long consideration, we decided 10 iron didn't really get you enough, and so have increased this slightly so that protecting your egg after respawning is a little easier.

    Buffer - After consuming the potion of regeneration, the glass bottle gets taken out of your inventory. Not really a direct buff, but something that just makes this kit easier to use.

    Debuffer - This can no longer harm you or your team. This is a fairly major buff to this kit as not being able to accidentally debuff yourself means that you can play a lot more aggressively.

    Shell Cracker - Added TNT into the kit. A gold pickaxe wasn't really enough for this kit, so to follow the defence breaking theme of this kit we choose to add a single block of TNT. This will also help getting the new Eggsplosive achievement.

    Egg Armour - Now has a 20% discount on all armour. This kit was designed to focus on protecting you (and not so much your egg), and so a reduction in armour cost will also help you out later game.

    Feather Feet - Replaced feather falling 1 leather boots with feather falling 4 chainmail boots, and made it so that all purchased boots have feather falling on them. This kit was just so weak we had to almost buff every aspect of it.


    Full changelog.png

    Sadly we cannot fit everything into a paragraph, so here's a full changelog! :)

    - Blank space at the end of usernames above players head on Minecraft versions 1.8 - 1.12 has been removed. It looked weird.
    - Debuffer kit no longer affects you or your teammates.
    - If a player disconnects just before they get a kill, their name will show up as gold, not as their team colour. (Java & Bedrock)
    - Death messages now always show the correct team colour.
    - Your egg will now have particles for your team colour around it.
    - Generators no longer produce resources once the game has finished.
    - Floating text above the villager shop now gets removed when the game ends. Previously just the villager got removed and not the text as well.
    - Teleporting to a map is now smoother in team mode and less glitchy.
    - In Hardcore mode, if you don’t have full health, your saturation no longer just vanishes.
    - Fixed typo in the “You can’t break your own team’s egg” message. This message is now different for solo mode, not using the term “team”.

    - Fixed a ladder being obtainable on the Western map.
    - Pushed a potential fix for players derping out when the die.

    - Changed the empty map with a nether star to open the voting menu (1.9+ only).
