Egg Hunt, for the first time since 2011, is not going ahead, and is being replaced by Metaverse Champions. We don't know if they'll ever come back, but if they do, we all know it's a dev hunt, it's so blatantly obvious Roblox do not care anymore.
But I see a little in Dev Hunts. I love standard, one world, cool story, different little places to go to egg hunts, much much much much much more then I like Dev Hunts. But there's a tiny light in Dev Hunts. They can work with the right execution.
So, here we are:

1. A hub with worlds and a storyline
Most single good egg hunts (2013, 2016, 2017, 2018) has had a lobby and/or a story, (Egg Hunt 2019 had both but let's be honest, that wasn't a memorable one) and I honestly don't see why Roblox hadn't done that in 2020. It just makes it a lot less cluttered and a lot more launch day hype. Egg Hunt 2016, 2017 and 2018, and even to some degree 2019 had hype around them because of the lobby and how everybody wanted to be first in. And when the hub opened, chat would always go mad, and you felt happy to be playing it. Also when it ended, it remained open to people who didn't play it or wanted to experience it again. Added on to that, a story adds intrigue, as you progress through the hunt as events begin to change, a story brings a sense of excitement and motivation to continue playing the hunt and get more eggs. Egg Hunt 2020 offered little to no motivation to get all the eggs, in fact I got 30 and just gave up. Same with EH 2019, though that was better then 2020, I got about 20 and gave up, cause there was still little motivation to carry on as the story wasn't really conjoining.

2. Less games, more eggs in them
The last 2 egg hunts have both been a one and done concept, 50-ish games and just a single egg. Egg Hunt 2015, my first egg hunt and the first dev hunt, had 3 games and multiple eggs in them, so it wasn't just hop game to game to game, you went into one, and you were on it for a while trying to get all the eggs (iirc about 7 or so in each game) and moved on. 2019 and 2020 weren't that. You go to a game, do a quest, get the egg and leave. Repeat that same mind numbing cycle 50 times, it really isn't fun. Personally I'd do about 10 games, about 3 eggs in each, so that's 30, and then in the lobby, 5 worlds and 4 eggs in those, add a boss battle world in for that final egg. RP2 was a developer event and had 7 games, but had just 1 item for it. If there's less games, it's a lot less of a pain, and with more eggs in the worlds, you're actually occupied. Add on the hub and story, there's actually something to play for.

3. A theme that is actually stuck to.
The 2020 spy/secret agent thing sounded pretty cool, but they messed it up, and only 1 or 2 games actually stuck to the theme. 2019 was about time travel, 2014 was a good vs evil type, 2018 revolved around breaking a spell set by an ancient egg. If 2022 Egg Hunt is a thing and a dev hunt too, added to a lobby and a story, less games, more eggs, hopefully the games and the hub actually stick to the theme it's revolved around.

That's kind of it. I hope there's a roblox admin in here that actually sees this. Egg Hunts, since their formation in 2008 have been the most anticipated event in Roblox, and its sad to have seen them just drop dead in recent years. If you've made it this far, thanks for reading I guess.

So a egg hunt?
No, there are different types of Egg Hunts.

1) Single World (2014, 2016, 2017, etc.)
2) Dev Hunt (2015)
3) Pure Garbage (2019, 2020)
4) Literally Nothing (2011, 2021)

And there's even the discontinued Egg Drop

What he is saying is that if it's another Dev Hunt he's saying how it should be done. As the world's only fan of Egg Hunt 2015 I think he has great ideas.

But what he said is exactly what an egg hunt is.

No, there's only ever been one Egg Hunt that was like that. 2019 and 2020 were different to 2015 because they had more games, less eggs per game, and were generally received worse.

At the end of the day, they are still Devhunts.

At the end of the day, you're still fat ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhh i got you good

Just because it's a Dev Hunt doesn't mean it can try to do something for once.

"I hope there's a roblox admin in here that actually sees this." Sadly no admins are probably gonna see this since it's not an official forum, still good job on the effort!
