I think that CubeCraft should add a higher sharpness sword for OP eggwars.

    The reason is that lowering the protection on armor basically ruins the point of OP. However, at the end of the game, stacked people with diamonds and such should not have to have much problems with people in Prot V leather. So, I think that CubeCraft should lower the cost of the sharp V diamond sword to 32 diamonds, and add a new diamond sword that is sharp 10 to balance the game.

    I suggested this earlier this week and most people agree. They should at least make it where the weapons are equivalent to 1.8 sharpness 2 swords in damage.

    I'd rather OP just be removed and replaced.

    Sorry but i believe it would be too overpowered. OP is already getting annoying with the bow spammers and 1.8 sword spamming it would be IMPOSSIBLE to kill the campers with a better sword. But nice suggestion!

    Yes, right now if you could you might as well use a plastic fork since it would be doing the same amount of damage, 0.(and the fork would be more usefull, to eat a diner) Also pretty certain 1.9 messed around with sharpness and armor values.

    I would prefer it if the protection values on the armor where reduced.

    I agree with @Lezappen. I feel that dropping the protection to 3 or 4 on the armor would help a bit.

    @komododragon2002 I'm aware of what was originally posted. I still think that between an addition of a sharper sword or a drop in protection, the drop in prot would have more of an effect.

    The suggestion (essentially) is adding a sword that could possibly make it to where you don't have to have a long battle of wearing down durability. I feel that changing the protection to 3 or 4 would have the same effect, without having to add another item.

    And why? I see no arguments..

    As said above, lowering the protection ruins the point of overpowered EggWars.

    It would also mean that people couldn't just grind for that sword and go around 2 hitting people who don't have the gear to stop the damage. If you drop the protection it just effects the damage of that one armour set rather than effecting all of them and therefore effecting the whole game. Just imagine that sword against protection 5 leather.

    The reasons why dropping the protection is a better alternative than making a really sharp sword :

    - Why we should change the protection values :
    The protection values where first designed for 1.8 pvp.
    1.9 has changed pvp so combats last longer, with protection 5 people have more time to regen during combat thus negating any damage taken, the damage/protection ratios are now clearly (in my opinion) broken as the only way to kill someone in op is to 3v1 them, break their armor or knock them into the void, 1v1's to the death in full diamond/full iron take way too much time, to the point at times where it is impossible to kill the opponent without doing as mentioned above.
    You can check this though by comparing the max dps of the sharp 5 diamond sword (with 100% accuracy) against the regeneration speed of steak/gold apples and the protection value of protection 5 iron/diamond armour.

    - Why we should keep the sword sharpness as it is :

    Sharp 10 goes way out of the vanilla mindset, sharp 10 against Protection 5 would be equal to sharp 5 against armour with lower stats.
    with a sharp 10 sword it would be a lot easier to kill people with lesser armor, in no less than a couple of hits, leaving less chance to those having only just recovered losing their gear to an un-improvised death.

    Granted, the point of Overpowered is to have the maximum enchantments but the maximum sword enchantment for the sword in vanilla is sharpness 5 not 10 and the maximum enchantment for armour is protection 4 not protection 5.
    This drop in protection will make it possible to kill people by pvping them, instead of breaking armor/shooting them off.

    I was literally about to type this.

    Lowering the protection values on the armour will decrease the duration of the games as well :)
    I think op takes too long xd

    I guess that's true, but it's just a suggestion.
