    Hello CubeCrafters,

    This week we've been working hard to bring you a new EggWars mode and other network improvements!

    Experimental EggWars: Double Egg
    It's about time EggWars was given a new gamemode, introducing Experimental EggWars! This gamemode rotates around bringing and releasing different and exciting twists to the game without affecting the Normal gamemode. Experimental EggWars can update, add or remove modes at anytime, to keep EggWars fresh and exciting to its players.

    The first Experimental mode we're introducing is "Double Egg". It's exactly what it says on the tin, your team now has 2 eggs rather than 1. Double Egg mode is a team only mode and uses the same maps as used in Normal EggWars to spice up the gameplay and strategy. Your team must now protect both of your eggs rather than just the one, it's a challenge, will you be able to protect them?​

    Two island eggs.
    So what's the twist with the egg? Well I'll tell you. When one of your teams eggs is broken, the last remaining egg will create an Ender surge, which will teleport anyone who isn't on your team within a 40 block radius back to their starting island. So you must break an egg and run! Any team members who just lost an egg will receive 3 hearts back if they are within the 30 block surge from their remaining egg.


    Remaining eggs' Ender surge.
    The main purpose of Experimental EggWars is to test new gamemodes and to keep EggWars fresh, updated and to introduce different strategies and gameplays for everyone to enjoy. There are endless combinations for different EggWars modes, so we'd love to hear your suggestions for different Experimental modes below.
    General Network Improvements and Fixes
    Along with EggWars we've also been improving the rest of the network!
    Global:
    -
    Released "lobby effect" settings.
    - Fixed an issue with changing lobbies resetting the Double Jump setting for Plus users.

    PvP Duels:

    - Fully removed other duel members death messages.
    - Fixed an issue with the duels challenge setting creating a noise of every lobby join.

    EggWars:
    - Removed Speed Solo.
    - Removed the lobby signs and replaced them with armourstands.
    - Changed lobby layout.

    SkyWars:
    - Reduced the refill timer for "Bedtime" from 8 minutes to 4.5 minutes.
    - Fixed an issue with the Unstoppable achievement
    - Fixed an issue with players obtaining Chorus fruit in cages.

    BlockWars:
    - Fixed an issue with missing information for the Bamboozler trap block.

    We hope you enjoy Experimental EggWars and Double Egg. We'd appreciate your feedback and suggestions below or here.

    I really enjoy the concept of experimental versions, but some of the changes to normal EW were pretty unnecessary in my opinion.
    (I'll be taking my time and going through the things and possibly write a suggestion about it if I feel it's necessary)

    To be completely honest here
    I expected a mega-update with at least more than one new experimental mode, with several new maps, with new achievements etc etc

    The only thing that is new, literally, is normal eggwars but with 2 eggs instead of with one

    Don't mind me, but I'm kind of dissapointed

    EDIT: Looks like I'm not the only one ;)

    According to @MrGrumpyCheese , stone ranks also get to use map selection like ranks used to be able to as a perk. It might be different, but I'm not sure.

    I haven't played the new experimental mode yet, but I don't like the tp back to your island. Campers will have huge advantages, since you now have to get to their island twice.
    It also means, once you killed the players and then get their egg, they have the chance to stack up again because you have to run back to their island.

    The whole 'tp-thing' doesn't seem nice to me, but that's just my personal opinion :)

    Pls increase gapple price asap because that’ll definitely take away from the good experience that this mode might bring. Looking forward to more lab modes.

    Lobby looks stupid and not practical, now people cant see how many players are in the map because there is no sign.

    Perhaps they could list the number of players in each online game in the tooltip when you hover your mouse over a map. However, it may be somewhat intentional to not show it, as it makes people join games when they may otherwise have been put off due to it saying no players.

    Actually, I think it is difficult to join new games because you have to hover your mouse around the selection until you find the map you want to join. I found the sign version better.
