    Hello,
    I've talked about this concept a while ago with my friends, and they really liked it. It just came to my mind as I saw some people talk about it on the forum.

    Do you think that eggs should be able to snipe?
    Should it only be able to snipe with power?
    this would really be OP in maps where rushing is the key to winning

    I would love to hear your opinion about this in the comments below :)

    What are you trying to suggest, adding eggs or making eggs be able to be shot?

    making eggs able to get shot by a bow
    perhaps only power or create a special bow for it

    People ussualy block up their eggs with at least sandstone so situations where this would work would happen when there is a blue moon, the planets align, and cubecraft renames itself to the chunk.

    If you are able to rush mid on a map like nightmare where you have 20 diamonds instantly you could use it early in game
    Or you can snipe the egg while your teammate opens up the egg and then fights them (Today, I mined the egg but couldn't pop the egg)

    but i get what you are saying tho

    Just curious how were you able to break the egg's protection, but not able to break the egg?

    I don't like this idea. Many offensive players leave their egg unguarded, especially in hardcore. This is meant for campers to leave base. If they could shoot it, that strategy is worthless.

    Yes because It'll teach people to cover up their egg..

    This has been suggested before, didn't get much support.
    +1 since I would love to see this (maybe only in op mode)

    It's been suggested before, and I still like the idea! It gives a little bit of a twist to eggwars, plus it's easy to just cover your egg up with sandstone and prevent it from happening

    Idea: what if you require 5 shots to destroy a egg?

    I think its too op. Mostly when you got to mid and back, the eggs are protected with blocks.

    I don't really like this idea, and I'll be honest. I have no idea why I don't like it, something about just rubs me the wrong way

    Make it so that you can shoot 10 arrows to break 1 sandstone, And 5 arrows to break an egg.
