    Hi,

    Shields are one of the best things in 1.9. but I find them too expensive in eggwars.
    I would reduce to 10 diamonds?

    One important reason is that you get more campers, and therefore games will take longer.
    Incidentally, it is quite convenient to have a shild at the beginning, so you can easily rush to a island.

    I also like to hear your opinions on this subject.

    Regards,
    jQuery

    No, if used currently shields can be very op, so i understand why they are that price.

    What @BuildBuild25 tried to say, that we are used to PvP without shield.

    I think the current price of shields is just fine.

    Shields are not op. You shoot a few times with a power bow, and he is broken, bye 30 diamonds

    I want to come back here. A shield is especially useful in combination with an ax (Block/ hit block/hit...).
    A shield belongs to PvP, I do not understand why it is so expensive. At first he was only 3 diamonds.

    For me shields are useless. Because:
    1. I don't use them
    2. I'm used without and that's going well. :)

    1. Who says that other players do not use them? I know many people who use them.
    2. I'm also used without elytra's and all other stuff of 1.9, but it's there anyway?
    These two reasons, I think is not good enough to have them expensive

    Almost everyone that I know on the server, are more used without shield than with. Maybe is this a good reason? ;)

    30 diamond seems like a reasonable price to me, as shields are pretty OP.

    Most are also used without all the 1.9 shit, but it is there anyway.
    And shields are not OP @telegamer rather they are useful for pvp.

    You can block arrows fully. You can walk on a bridge without being shot off, it basicly saves your life. If that's not OP, I don't know what is.

    I think i agree with @xMegaCoolx and @BuildBuild25. Shields have been kinda useless to me. I always outplay people with a punch bow in my off hand. You take out teams with a punch bow, not a shield. Now before i am called a bow spammer, let me just clarify, i don't bow spam. But i do find that using a bow instead of a shield in the off hand is much better.,
