    I personally think that there should be a such thing as a "game ender" so games don't take 3 hours long. There should be a dragon/wither that spawns in after a certain amount of time 40mins for normal and 1h 10mins for overpowered. This would stop teams camping on the island for ages and make the game better for everybody playing it. I have had to leave a game because of that so i know how it feels. This would make the game more interesting for people. This is only my opinion and i understand if you may think differently.

    Do it at the 10min mark or earlier. 40min and other is WAY too long for skywars.

    No... I like long Games to be honest...
    Some people may not be ready for a Death Match that makes this Idea even worse :/
    Also the Duration of a Game relies on a Map really.... If you join something like Rome your game will be finished in 10 minutes but something like Tea Party it takes min 1 hour to the game to finish....

    Thing is, long games are more suited for games such as UHC where the world is very large, larger compared to some maps on egg/sky wars. Mineplex has something called "world crumble" where the starting islands start crumbling after some time, effectively acting as a deadly border.

    Long games mean you get less XP, points, and possible cubelets per hour. For someone going for the best rates, that would hurt a lot. That's only 1-2 instances of getting XP and points if a guy won 1-2 long games per hour. Now, if those were given more based on game length, then it's worth it. Of course, hourly drop rates would still be lower than if a guy were to play multiple short games in order to encourage fast games.

    I was thinking alone the lines of the scoreboard with say when the game will end or when it spawns in.

    I think its a very cool idea, however adding it to a game like eggwars, could change the whole game. It just makes the game different. It is a cool idea for a new game mode maybe.

    Basically, eggwars is skywars but with the money shop instead of getting items from chests and enemy players. In the end, it's turtling in both games, which lengthens the game a lot.

    But it alsos relies on how you play the game :/ you could be rusher a farmer etc. you get it... So long games exist because people take time to do stuff...

    If you execute a rush correctly, then you'll speed up the game. I tested turtling and farming compared to rushing and it seems the latter is what allowed a fast but risky victory.

    I have to disagree with you. You can be a rusher and still die often. The same counts for a camper.
    It all depends who your opponents are. One game is easier to rush cause the other teams are less good at the game and the tactics behind it. A different game camping could be better due to a lot of players in your game who know how to play.

    Back to topic:
    I don't really like an automatic game ender. You play a game to win, no matter how long it takes (could be just me). There is a risk that your game takes longer than usual but that's just the risk you take by playing that specific game.

    Don't like long games? Don't play games which can take hours of your time :)

    Eggwars in essence is not that long of a game if nobody is camping, the game should not take longer than 30 minutes to an hour and 30 minutes, unless you are playing op. Skywars is definitely not a long game, should only take you around 30 minutes. I do like the idea of a game ender if the game takes longer than 1 hour and 30 minutes. As hyper said you are actually losing by playing those long games since you are gaining less, the only thing you are getting from playing a really long game is just getting satisfaction that the game is over.(If a game takes you 3 hours to complete chances are that is the only game you are going to play for that day if you are in school)
