    Stone axes in early game eggwars are extremely op when you compare them to every other weapon in the roaster damage wise.
    Lets look at the damage

    wood sword: 4 damage(not that there is any reason to buy it in the eggwars shop either but.. x3)

    wood axe: 7 damage(idk if this is in the eggwars shop because I skip to stone sword usually but just for comparison)

    stone sword: 5 damage. crit damage 7.5 damage

    stone axe: 9 damage. crit damage.... 13.5 damage

    The recovery time of a stone axe is about 1.25 seconds so 1 hit and 1 critical hit will kill you
    which is 2 Hits you will get 2 shotted in just 2.5 seconds.....

    The recovery time of a sword is about .600 seconds so it would take 2 crit hits and 1 normal hit to kill a unarmored player
    so it would take 1.8 seconds to kill them

    early game however(which is the only time it is ever viable to use stone weapons) dps doesn't matter to much because people are made of paper when they don't have armor on and the difference between stone axe and sword dps is only a woping .800 damage(leather armor doesn't make to much of a difference) so people will choose the stone axe every time because its easy to use, it deals way to much burst damage and it truely shows. Go on, go on a egg wars game and rush mid and tell me, how many of those people who had weapons used a stone axe over a stone sword?

    please, admins nerf the stone axe because there is literally no reason to pick anything else other then the stone axe

    Though this is a good idea and all, it won't make it pure 1.9 mechanics. Plus, you cannot hit critical hits with axes, I believe.

    As far as I know, Every axe does 9 damage. The only difference is the cooldown of the weapon.

    EDIT: Ok ok I just checked to make sure, the damage per axe IS different. (When did this happen..?)

    This is the proper damage values for axes, something went wrong.

    Wood : 7 (Correct) 0.8 Speed 5.6 DPS
    Iron: 9 (Correct) 0.9 Speed 8.1 DPS
    Gold: 7 (Correct) 1 Speed 7 DPS
    Stone and Diamond are wrong, this happened when 1.8 mode was released but was never foxed.

    It mostly depends on your preference and skills.
    Swords have a faster cooldown compared to axes, so if you're someone with bad aim (or spams because why not..) then they would most likely go for swords. It can also be that the player is better with swords.
    Imagine going against someone who hits the air frequently, you have better aim and want to do more hits faster so sword.

    I prefer the axe though.
    They can also use to sword to get use to 1.9 PvP.

    if Axes were nerfed to maybe the power of swords nobody would choose an axe. Like said above an axe has it's +points but also -points, the same goes for swords. Also, Axes are a way of tactic. if you want to be powerfull at the beginning of a game, choose an axe. sry but this is a -1 from me

    I suggest just make the axe cool down a tiny bit longer, right now a half charge can equal a stone sword.

    What's weird is in 1.9 and 1.9.2 stone axes only did 8 damage, but in 1.9.4 and 1.10 they do 9. I actually do think they should go back to that 8 damage, so that we can do the same DPS with a wood sword, it's like that with other weapons.
