We just updated Mega Walls!
If you've never played the game, this is the perfect time to try it out.
Mega Walls has been a pillar of Hypixel since the server was created.
Our directing line with this update is to modernize the game so that a new generation of players on the server can enjoy it, while keeping it fresh for veteran players with new content.
Please note, this update will be followed by a patch in the next few days to iron out the class balance and fix any issues we can find. So please do share your feedback in the Megawalls forums and report bugs.
We would like to tell you about a project run by some friends of ours!
Super League Gaming are running a competitive Minecraft tournament in movie theaters in 16 US cities (where many of you probably live!).
Its called Minecraft City Champs. Players battle in 7 different minigames (some similar to the minigames we have on Hypixel, like Walls, Soccer, Domination and Survival Games) in a city-vs-city competition, with the gameplay showing on the big screen!
The event begins on Saturday April 21st (Yes - THIS Saturday) and runs for 5 weeks on Saturday mornings in 16 locations across America.
How the Tournament works
Week 1 is Practice Day when players meet their teams and can play on the Super League servers for the first time.
Weeks 2, 3 and 4 are competition days, with each city playing the other cities in their division
Day 5 is the Grand Finals, with the four division winners facing off to see who will be the next City Champs!
Each city can have up to 60 players that will be divided into 5-person teams that stay together for the whole tournament. You’ll be able to practice and strategize together to increase your chances of winning.

How to enter
You can enter the tournament by clicking on the cities below (please note this is a physical event for the mentioned locations).
Superleague have been kind enough to give the Hypixel community $20 off using the code hypixel20 at checkout! (Note that on mobile devices you need to scroll down)
A note from me personally on this: Hypixel has no business relationship with Superleague - we don't get any profits or anything like that from our players using the discount code.
We are promoting this because we want to support the Minecraft community at large. We met the Superleague guys and were invited to their offices while we were doing Minecon 2016 in Los Angeles. We think they are pretty neat . (Also we totally have the ulterior motive of wanting the winning players to be from the Hypixel community)
Superleague are also officially partnered with Mojang / Microsoft. So no problems there either.
Let us know if you plan to attend! Hypixel represent!
