    We've teased it on stream a few times and here it is, the EggWars update you've all been waiting for! We've got new maps, abilities, emerald generators, a new kit, and more! Make sure to send some love to @Mintcraftian for his hard work developing this update!

    Abilities
    We've added three abilities to give you that slight extra edge over your opponents. For full specifics on the abilities, make sure to check out the shop in any EggWars lobby!

    Egg Cracker - Chance for positive potion effect after breaking an egg
    Feather Weight - Chance of taking 50% less fall damage
    Iron Belly - Chance to gain bonus saturation when eating

    Other Game Updates
    Emerald Generators have been added to some new maps and some old maps. They work differently than other generators and allow you to get special map specific items! Rather than always generating emeralds, they will ONLY generate if a player is standing near them, meaning you can't just run in, grab emeralds, and run away. They also only appear in the middle of maps, which will encourage players to push to the middle and help make camping harder! A list of the maps that Emerald Generators are on can be found at the bottom.

    If you're like me and are great at accidentally falling to your death, the new Feather Feet kit is for you! It will spawn you with a pair of feather falling boots and help prevent those deadly accidental falls! For the full game and map changelog, check out the spoiler at the bottom of this post.

    New Maps
    As always, the build team has done eggcellent work with the new maps! Make sure to send some love their way.
