    The egg in Eggwars is virtually useless. I always win without even protecting my egg at all. The reason being (as I have tried many different strategies many times) that once I die, I lose all my gear, meaning that I don't even have the power anymore to protect my egg, and people with diamond gear can easily trump me, and kill my egg, and quickly eliminate me. Thus, I always win without protecting my egg by initially doing stone axe, leather helmet, chainmail chestplate, leather leggings, and leather boots, then i rush mid and get diamonds, and even if they destroy my egg, it doesn't make a difference. They come to get me, but I kill them as they come to my bridge, then go to my villager, get a bow, go to mid, keep killing people that try to kill me, if someone tries to stop me, and I rack up best gear. The fact that someone destroys my egg during this process makes no difference because if they then try to eliminate me, I kill anyone in my way with my semigood gear, until I get more diamonds to perfect my semi best gear, because im before most people. And people who do come before me, have less gear due to the fact that they spent iron on an early bridge, so I kill those early birds. I have a very high success rate with this strategy, not worrying about my egg, and its destruction doesn't faze my win at all. I always crush those who have eggs towards the end, because they still have their eggs, meaning they spent time on protecting them (usually this is the case), meaning time lost on betterment of gear, and my superior gear easily destroys their egg and eliminates them.
    In sum, eggwars for me is better called Tradewars, because I can start with no egg in the first place, and still succeed with this strategy, and its the trading with the villager that really seems important to me as oppose to the egg.
    In conclusion? If cubeecraft means for this minigame to have emphasis on the villager, then thats fine with me. Just dont call it eggwars, and get rid of the egg, because my relatively optimal strategy (obviously many others may have their own variations, but im sure experienced, and intellegent players in eggwars came to my identical conclusion that the egg is pretty much useless) is eventually adopted in some sort of variation by everyone, and the egg is simply just a small extra thing to do to eliminate a player after you killed them.
    If Cubecraft wishes to have eggwars have more emphasis on the egg, then I would change the game in this way to allow more incentive for the egg. Make it so that the villager is no longer functional, and their deals are closed, or they die after the egg is destroyed, so that there is more emphasis on the egg's protection, and then people will protect it more. And maybe, add that the person who destroyed the egg has access to that villager's trades, and no one else does for destroying the egg as a reward, allowing for incentive for other eggs destruction, as a counter for an incentive for their own egg's protection.
    Furthemore or an alternative, have items pop into inventory as reward for destroying other peoples eggs, giving incentive as well, and give inventory rewards possibly for having your egg NOT destroyed for a certain length of time as a reward for protecting it for so long.
    All of these alternative are just ideas to giving emphasis to the egg, and I'm sure there are many more, but one way or another, the egg NEEDS more emphasis for this game to live up to its namesake.
    Yours Truly,

    Errrr idk...
    You can suicide off the bridge just to get your kit infinit amounts of times.
    Also you have enough people (like me) that are stupid enough to miss a 1 block parkour jump and die. I think the Egg is good for now and doesn't need any extra value to be honest.

    Dear TheJeroen,
    What do u mean suicide off bridge to get "your kit"? How does that prove any point and have anything to do with my suggestion?
    Also, there are a lot of people who wont miss a 1 block jump, because its actually quite simple if u think about it!!! Anyways, still what the heck in the world does that parkour comment have ANYTHING to do with my suggestion?

    Dear build,
    This does not put campers at an advantage at all. How does it give campers advantage? they wont get any diamonds!!!! how is that an advantage? campers in eggwars always lose.

    Well, you can suicde with the Healer Kit to get free Gapples every time and put them in a chest.
    Or with Egg Shell kit you can suicide gaining 8 extra blocks every time.

    Also when you die while attacking you can respawn and maybe get a diamond chest and legging with a little bit of defence.
    You ALWAYS have chances to win, your Egg is just very usefull.

    Not everybody can 1.. 2.. 3.. poof! Win a game without their egg.

    You said that it's an idea to remove the egg. Also if you want someone specific to get an alert, tag them as in @Build .

    Most offensive players don't care about their egg and you said "No trading with broken egg" meaning they couldn't get blocks or anything..

    thats the point, that way they would have more emphasis on protecting the egg and destroying other eggs, rather than ignoring it, so that they can trade

    @AnimalFarmer1984 It Wont be Useless If you hide a chest with stuff so if you die you can stack up with more gear.. Therefore, people with have a harder time taking your Egg

    You act like your strategy so good that the game should change because of you? No. I believe that protecting your egg is good. I have beat many people using your strategy easily. You get their egg and kill them. If they kill you, you RESPAWN and try again. Just because they have an egg with obsidian doesn't mean that they have no gear. It is much easier to win with an egg. It is as simple as that.

    bruh. Let me give you a direct example. Your in an OP battle with NORMAL Health. You both have dia gear in a 1 v 1 final. Do you think if you die, and lose all your stuff that you have a chance at all? He will come for your egg easy peasy. The respawn only delays the inevitable in such a situation, ur elimination
    I dont act like it. I have discussed this with MANY people in the lobby, and many experienced friends of mine of eggwars agreed with me. Im not making this up out of the blue. This is many days of trying different strategies. And I am sure that this strategy is the best. Im not making anything up. Second off: I NEVER SAID ANYTHING, I REPEAT, ANYTHING!!!! about it should change because of ME or my strategy. Im saying it should change because if everyone employs this best strategy more or less, with room for variations, but the same idea, the egg is pontless. THIS IS MY POINT. Stop lying about what I said and putting words in my mouth that I didn't say or mean at all
    Obsidian means nothing. Seriously. Only 10 dias to get best pickaxe, and u get through obby easypeasy. Trust me. I have been in that situation dozens of times and won.
    You said "He who kneels before God can stand before anyone"
    The pope sent many men, women, and kids to their deaths on a so called crusade to get money for himself. I would step on that Pope Urban and kill him, and save all those lives, even though he knelt before God. I would stand before that pope and crush him under my foot if could and save all those lives.

    Better stack up in that immediate moment, rather than saving. Anything you save in a chest that can be used in battle should be to defeat ur opponent. Otherwise, stacking leather iron in a chest when ur in a battle where people have iron and dia gear means nothing, u might as well quit
