    NOTE: This is NOT to be confused with fly hacking. This is a suggestion for a late-game legitimate ability.

    In eggwars, lucky islands, and skywars, bridging is a risky but rewarding feature. Problem is, it's very difficult and suicidal to do it at late-game when one guy camps. Here's a solution: what about flying with the elytra? This legitimate flight will work differently:

    When you equip the elytra, you will be given the option to lift off. It will either show to you only in the chat window or have its command item replace one of your items by putting the replaced item in your inventory. When this option is in your inventory, you can right-click the item to lift off. Lift off takes 3 seconds to become fully airborne, but with a catch.

    -Given at late game (about 30+ minutes into the game).
    -Lift off lifts you off by 8 blocks in the Y axis.
    -Flying reduces your movement speed to 28% of the normal speed (e.g 4.3m/s to 1.2m/s. This is actual walking distance in MC).
    -You can move only in the X and Z plane, not up or down in the Y axis.
    -You cannot attack, place blocks, trade with the villager, break blocks, throw anything, or otherwise while flying. The only things you may do are to land on the ground or move.
    -Landing takes 3 seconds to complete. You are still vulnerable to attack.

    Taking off the elytra takes out the command item. The user is free to put on his usual chestplate and fight/move normally when on the ground.

    I don't like this. Building a bridge isn't that hard. Just build a bridge at build height and usually they won't see you or be able to hit you with arrows. I do like how you made it not underpowered. I still don't think this should be added to Egg Wars at least.

    Only one issue an anticheat cant tell the difference between hacking and legit flying such as the elytra,/fly ect o theyed have to turn off the flying portion of the anticheat which makes the server vulnerable to fly hackers

    Have the anticheat check the following conditions:

    1. If the game is 30+ minutes.
    2. If the game is eggwars, skywars, or lucky islands.
    3. Flying speed. Most clients fly at standard walking speed or slightly faster, not slower at crouch speed.

    In pseudocode, it may look something like this (nested conditions):

    if (game is lucky islands or game is eggwars or game is eggwars)
    {
    if (game is 30+ minutes)
    {
    if (person flying is flying at 1.2 blocks per second)
    //code to permit flight at that speed ONLY and NO Y axis changes.
    }​
    }

    No. I don't like this idea. It is always possible to create a "safe bridge" whenever in the game, no matter how late it is. It is basically like saying to fly hackers," After 30 minutes into the game, you may turn on your fly hacks!" You won't be able to tell which ones are hacking and which ones are legit. -1

    I'd rather see another anti-camp method be added (RAINBOWS!)

    This would be too "different" from the minigames and rather game changing

    Meh, got a better way.
    Code:
    if (game == lucky_islands && time_minutes == 30 && player_has_elytra) {
    allow_flying();
    }
    Your code doesn't take into consideration on whether the player is wearing an elytra or not.

    This would be a way of trolling people. I don't like it. Also, it'll be very hard to fly to each island because each island is at the same level -1

    Also, it would make it harder to tell which ones are hackers and which ones aren't.

    Oops, forgot about that! That was just pseudocode though.

    i think its a good idea i encounter every eggwars game campers. and they have bows so if we build up or below or just plain build a bridge to there base they will shoot us this is so annoying i dont think with skywars though skywars is a super quick type minigame eggwars is not though only becuase of campers.

    "Strategy" ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    Elytra's would be game breaking, since bridging wouldn't even be necessary with them. Safe bridges from 2 sides OR a sneaky safe bridge will do you justice.

    yes but when you finally get there they break the blocks under you and you could easily get killed by the arrows

    First, you can always build your bridge high up. Second, there are epearls in OP. 3rd, it is too hard to camp in Hardcore, and is easy to raid teams early on because the cost of building blocks.

    Why to use an elytra or fly when you have TNT boosting? ;)

    The suggestion itself is too complicated. Just elytra in OP Eggwars shop and SW OP chests would be enough.
