    We are testing the 2 ender pearls but are very open to making it just 1 each as that's still a very useful perk if used correctly.

    yeah i was gonna say, the fact that it's all team members seems as though if used in coordination, could be insta wins :p it's a super neat idea though, new features are always hype!

    I think two is fine. This way if you mess up one you can still use the other, and they're much less OP than they sound with most maps having a lot in-between middle/side islands and the giant

    Unless it's something custom coded, afaik Mining Fatigue does not reduce attack speed, it only does in 1.9+.

    I think a super adorably cute raccoon was involved with the project.
