Mistakes to avoid playing cake wars: 1. Not covering your cake before rushing mid! Mid is one of the busiest places early on in the game and by leaving your cake exposed you are asking for death. Cover up your cake with preferably clay or moonrack, wool works too. 2. Camping at your base and not helping your teammates! I see so many people who thinks it’s a good idea to camp at base the whole time and build a big wool wall around their island. IT’S NOT A GOOD IDEA. It literally doesn’t help with défense and you’re hanging your teammates out to dry. Find something to do! Cover the cake in obsidian, prepare to eat another team’s cake, or even help capture middle or emerald point! It’s not that hard! 3. Not eating exposed cakes. Relates back to my first point. Eat the exposed cakes you see! It’ll help dwindle their number later in the game and it’s one less team to worry about. Be prepared for retaliation because they might try to rush you with their entire team in an attempt for revenge. 4. Not capturing emerald points early on! Middle is busy and competitive and I’m not one to rush them as early as possible, but you should at least help capture 1 or 2 emerald point. It will greatly help everyone on your team 5. NOT BUYING RESOURCES AS AN UPGRADE. Seriously, it’s one of the best things to buy with your hard earned nether stars. It multiplies all the emerald, bricks, and nether stars you get by 2x! And resources II multiply them by 3x! It’s super easy to become unstoppable with this upgrade. Under some circumstances you may want to prioritize protection and sharpness if you plan to fight a lot, but resources is probably the best upgrade in game. Get it as soon as possible!
