    I wish to suggest that the following be considered for addition to OP chests load-out.

    Moderately rare (about as rare as ender pearls, one in every 4-6 chests):

    TNT
    Blaze Mob Eggs
    Fireworks

    Common (small number in 50% of chests):

    Obsidian
    Diamond blocks
    Ice
    Cake

    I do not see the blaze mobs causing much server lag. OP chests is rarely seen on Sky Wars - and rightly so - so it should not be a huge load.

    Sorry, I forgot to add that PvP potions should be moderately rare additions too. Particularly: Poison, Swiftness, Leaping, Invisibility.

    TNT- This is unique to the bomber class and I kinda wanna keep it that way.
    Blaze Mob Eggs- Sounds like a really neat idea. Maybe ghast eggs too?
    Fireworks- Not a whole lot of reason to add these, but I see no harm in adding them.
    Common (small number in 50% of chests):
    Obsidian- Sure, why not?
    Diamond blocks- Might be a tad OP.
    Ice- Sure, why not?
    Cake- Sure, why not?

    Well, you have to remember that OP chests makes the sword/armour/bow starts fairly pointless too at the moment. The bomber kit starts with more TNT than would be the sum of all chests combined on many smaller maps, so there is still some reason to choose it.

    I have heard ghasts are very laggy creatures. I'd try it and see.

    I don't see why, you frequently get full or nearly full enchanted diamond armour at the start already with OP chests :)

    I don´t really think that we need any of these.
    U can get TNT with the kit, fireworks would be just for fun and the eggs are not really needed.
    Same with the blocks.

    I'm not sure it's a good idea to add fireworks; a lot of people don't have powerful computers, and when fireworks go off they will start to lag very badly.

    Nuuu, last time i used fireworks, it was a modded one that crashed my mc browser for 27 minutes. I don't see any harm in adding things such as diamond blocks and obsidian, but cake is entirely 110% unnecessary seeing as most people use golden apples as their food source, given their absorbing perk, the regen and the mass supply of them.

    I lag for whatever kind of fireworks .-. People could mass horde them and place them rapidly, causing a lot of lag.

    Using lag as a weapon.. Ok, lag isn't good, but that's a pretty solid plan to win a game xD

    Re: TNT similar could be said about a lot of OP items. I could also have said that diamond armour can be made from mining diamond ore, so why put them in chests? The reason is because it providing new options to more people more quickly. This gives more reasons to want OP chests as the player has more choices. But really, why not the eggs?

    As a moderately rare item, there would be less total fireworks on small map than go off above the winner's head at the end of the round. It would be hard to collection many. You can always turn down graphics settings.

    It is there for the same reason as fireworks. In this case it would be amusing to face someone who had built a fort out of cake.

    From someone with about a year of experience editing mobs, I can tell you that blazes and ghasts have about the same amount of lag-inducing potential. I only said ghast because spawning a blaze would just make it attack the spawner. A ghast would fly around and shoot anything it can. (Its agro breaks with line-of-sight. Blaze agro doesn't.)

    Fair enough, ghasts would be better then.

    Adding onto this POKEBALLZ suggestion. Perhaps if you right click, it spawns where you are standing, however if you shift + right-click it, it effectively throws it, with the same projectile sequence as a snowball.
