Carbon Steel Pan Eggs Sticking even after seasoning

Cata96 | Mar 19, 201906:11 AM     18

Hello, I have recently seasoned my CS pan using the stove top method with multiple layers, i did quite alot of them until the bottom of the pan became completly black, without any blotchy/sticky parts, buuut... when i tried frying up 2 eggs using butter to cover the whole bottom of the pan, they stuck....
I've posted a photo with the pan after having to clean the sticky eggs off it, and it now looks like badly seasoned... But cleaning was really easy tho... with just a tiny bit of salt and oil...
Any ideas? Is the seasoning not good enough? I used vegetable and flax seed oil for the seasoning alternating the layers. Or have I not used enought fat? even tho a thin coat was covering the whole surface?

Thank you guys in advance for every reply! :)
