Beta Season 1 of Ranked Skywars just ended!

Thank you all for participating, the mode has been way more popular than we expected to be!

Rewards of Beta Season 1
Ranked Mode being so popular, we decided to revisit the rewards and give it more thoughts - however they are not quite ready yet so you guys need to be patient! At first we just wanted to give out coins but a lot of the top players are maxed out and are seeking out unique things that no one else can have - however that requires a bit more time than just giving out coins! Don't worry, there will also be coins and experience if that's your thing :)
We do not have an ETA, but your names are written down so it's all good!

Who are getting rewards?
More than 99 people, a lot of you who played enough will receive things. We are short on time so we can't discuss the details just yet.

Edit: Just to clear the top 10% / 5% and 1% are still recieving prizes.

Warlords
fans rejoice! We're bringing a new balancing patch to your doorstep, as well as three new maps, an irresistible new playstreak reward, weapon skill customization, and a new team balancer. Check it out!

3 New Maps

We have 1 new map for each mode of Warlords. Whatever your preferred play style, there's something new here for you to enjoy!

Gorge.png
Gorge
Scorched.png

Ruins (4).jpg
Ruins​

Weapon Skill Customization

A new feature is now available at the Weaponsmith! Spend 100 void shards to customize your currently equipped legendary’s skill bonus at any time, with no further cost. This will NOT change the specialization of your legendary weapon. Make sure you have the correct weapon equipped; a different weapon will require another 100 void shards to be customized!

example.png

New Playstreak

The playstreak has received a massive makeover! Just like the current playstreak, it increases by 20% per finished game and caps at 100%. For each game finished with a 100% playstreak, you will now earn a special kind of broken weapon.

These special broken weapons have tripled chances of epic and legendary weapons, and every weapon is guaranteed to be rare or better. As if that wasn’t enough, every epic and legendary you receive from these special broken weapons can be forged up to 2 times for epics and 4 times for legendaries - the same as crafted weapons. You will be rewarded greatly for finishing your games!

Team Balancer

A new team balancing system has been put in place. Teams will now be balanced right before the game starts, and the gates will open 10 seconds later. Please test this new system out, and take screenshots of teams before the gates open. Thank you!

The new team balancer has rid itself of the issues the previous version had, such as swap cooldowns and party stacking, as well as combats some of the former loopholes and abuse.

General Fixes

These include quality of life changes, bugged skill fixes and new game mechanics.

Defender
  • Last stand now correctly reduces damage by 50%.
  • Last stand now heals for the correct amount.
Defenders are now stronger with allies, weaker in duels.

Capture The Flag
  • Melee hits no longer deal knockback in CTF.
  • Respawn protection reduced to 10 seconds
  • You now respawn with full energy
Click the spoiler for a full list!

Crusader
  • Crusader Strike’s energy restoration range is now 10 blocks.
Earthwarden
  • The upgrade now applies to the final pulse of healing totem as well. Level 9 healing totem will now heal for 841 - 1138 health.
Ability Tooltips
  • Many abilities now have a more accurate description in lobbies as well as in game.
Domination
  • Respawn mechanics improved
  • Respawn protection reduced to 10 seconds
  • You now respawn with full energy
Lobby
  • Info board updated.
Death Valley
  • Stump and Quarry no longer share the same respawn point.
This should make the map more balanced with fights less centered around Quarry.

Super Soaker Achievement

  • Health requirement changed from 5% to 25%
Total Domination Achievement
  • Achievement should now work
Playstreak
  • Playstreak no longer resets to 20%
Misc Map Issues
  • Domination beacons are now centered and no longer 1 block higher
  • Parkour up spawns removed in “The Rift”
  • Doriven Basin barrier blocks massively cleaned up

Class Balancing

As announced earlier this month, there have been some minor changes to the classes in order to smooth out the numbers between specializations and to give some power back to lower levels. This is the link to the original thread: https://hypixel.net/threads/warlords-april-balancing-patch-pre-release.667891/

Updated list of balance changes in the spoiler below:

Warrior
Berserker
  • Blood Lust Duration: 12s → 10s
  • Blood Lust Heal: 40% → 50%
  • Blood Lust Duration Upgrade: 25% → 50%
  • Blood Lust Heal Upgrade: 25% → 15%
Low level berserkers have been struggling to make good use of their bloodlust due to being forced to survive 12 seconds with lower health and healing. These changes will condense the power of bloodlust for level 0 berserkers, allowing lower level berserkers to make better use of bloodlust. Level 9 bloodlust remains unchanged.

Mage
Pyromancer
  • Fireball Damage: 279-377 → 279-361
  • Fireball Crit Multiplier: 135% → 150%
  • Inferno Base Crit Multiplier: 40% → 35%
  • Energy Per Hit: 5 → 7
Level 0 crit multiplier is coming back, DPS on fireball remains the same (with and without inferno). The maximum crit on fireball also remains the same. 7 energy per hit is back.

Cryomancer
  • Frostbolt Damage: 224-335 → 244-315
Narrowing the range of damage. Direct hits are now always stronger than indirect hits.

Warrior
All Specializations
  • Seismic Wave Upgrade Crit Chance: 5% → 10%
  • Seismic Wave Upgrade Crit Multiplier: 50% → 25%
Reducing the massive crits from level 90 warriors.

Berserker
  • Blood Lust Duration: 12s → 10s
  • Blood Lust Heal: 40% → 50%
  • Blood Lust Duration Upgrade: 25% → 50%
  • Blood Lust Heal Upgrade: 25% → 15%
Low level berserkers have been struggling to make good use of their bloodlust due to being forced to survive 12 seconds with lower health and healing. These changes will condense the power of bloodlust for level 0 berserkers, allowing lower level berserkers to make better use of bloodlust. Level 9 bloodlust remains unchanged.

Paladin
All Specializations
  • Holy Radiance Crit Multiplier: 175% → 150%
Holy Radiance retains its powerful base sustain. This change paves the way for a small revert to Avenger crits and a meaningful base heal for Protector.

Avenger
  • Avenger Strike Crit Multiplier: 125% → 150%
  • Avenger Strike Upgrade Crit Multiplier: 25% → 10%
Level 0 Avenger strike crits are now more impactful, and its average DPS is also higher. Level 90 avenger gains 10% more crit multiplier compared to now.

Protector
  • Holy Radiance Base Healing: 459 - 621 → 582 - 760
  • Holy Radiance Upgrades: +10% Healing removed
  • Hammer of Light Energy cost: 0 → 15
For a level 0 protector, Holy Radiance was barely better than a consecrated strike. This change brings Holy Radiance on par with other paladin specializations. To keep Protector in check, a small energy cost returns to Hammer of Light.

Shaman
Thunderlord
  • Capacitor Totem Upgrade: Crit Multiplier: 35% → 25%
  • Capacitor Totem Upgrade: Cooldown: 25% → 33%
Level 9 capacitor totem cooldown was 8 seconds longer than two lightning rods. Efficient Lightning Rod usage resulted in inefficient capacitor totems. Efficient capacitor totem usage forced delayed lightning rods. This change removes the odd cooldowns, while keeping the upgrade in check with lower crit multipliers.

Enjoy the new features, and have fun in the new maps!

happy-birthday-3-newspost.png

I've been informed by some people that we've been so busy with updates lately we let something important slip by... we forgot our 3rd birthday!

13th of April 2013 is when we first opened the Hypixel server, and what a journey it has been!

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone that has joined us so far. To date 8.9 million unique accounts have logged into the Hypixel Server and if we were an actual game on Steam we would have been in the top 10 concurrent players online a few times in the past few years, it's CRAZY to think how far we have come! Never in our wildest dreams would we have imagined this to be possible!

Special thanks to everyone that has supported the server to date with ranks and other purchases. You guys are the ones who funded the whole thing and made it all possible, we have the best jobs in the world and it's so rewarding to see you guys enjoy the things we create.

Big thanks to our volunteers (moderators, helpers, builders, creative staff, elites, players who make guides, etc) who dedicate their time towards making the server a better place. You guys are so important for us to make this Hypixel experience as great as it can be :)

To celebrate the birthday we've activated Triple Coins on the network for the next 24 hours!

As always we are striving to deliver you guys the best possible experience, updates - balance patches, new games, new maps! Summer is planned to have some great content and experiences coming your way :)

Watchdog Stats
While we have a non update newspost, I wanted to talk a little about the great work that is happening with our watchdog project.

watchdogcount.png
Watchdog to date has issued automatic bans to a staggering 128,000 users. In the month of April the effectiveness of Watchdog has almost doubled. Our puppy is improving all the time and this is down to you guys! Every time you submit a report and watchdog catches a hacker it becomes more and more effective at catching them (Since you are teaching the AI). We know its not a perfect cheat detection method yet, but it's already helping the server a lot!​

Let's not forget that these stats do not include all the thousands of bans the moderators do every week by hand based on your reports! Please keep them coming!

Join the team!
We are always looking for more people to help. With summer coming up thats even more important than ever. Check out the following links for more information

leveling-update-4.gif

The highly anticipated Hypixel Leveling Update is out now! The goal with this update was to make leveling more fun, faster, rewarding, and most importantly, making Coin Mastery 5.0x a lot easier to obtain for everyone! Keep reading for a detailed list of all the changes! On top of that, we have decided to rename Network Levels to Hypixel Levels in order to make it less confusing to the newer players who don’t necessarily know what Network means. It is also a much more friendlier term!

The old Coin Mastery menu is no more. In its place, you will now find the Hypixel Leveling menu! This menu is represented by the Brewing Stand and can be accessed either by right-clicking the My Profile item in your hotbar, or through the Game Menu (compass).

newcompass.png

menutooltip.png

Rewards, rewards, and even more rewards!
From now on, every time you gain a Hypixel Level, the following message will appear in chat while in a lobby:

levelupchat.png

Clicking on it will open the Hypixel Leveling menu for you, allowing you to claim your reward immediately!

levelingrewardstooltips.jpg

At the top, every Minecart with a Chest is a unique reward and you get one at EVERY level up until level 100! Those rewards include:
  • Arcade Coins
  • Mystery Boxes
  • Mystery Dust
  • Personal Coin Boosters
  • The ability to change the color of the ‘+’ in your [MVP+] tag (MVP+ only Cosmetic)
  • Legendary Skull King Banner
At the bottom of this page, you will also find the new Coin Multipliers! These are unlocked automatically upon reaching the required level, there is no need to manually claim them.

There are now more stages to the Coin Multipliers than there used to be (1.5x, 2.0x, 2.5x, etc), and they are earned much faster than before.

For higher level veteran players, there is the Veteran Rewards menu which can only be accessed by players at or above Hypixel Level 100.

Stage 1 of 2
The Rewards update is part one of two - The next part is the Leveling: Quests Update that should not be too long of a wait. This will include the ability to automatically accept quests upon joining a game lobby without having to interact with the Quest Master, a rebalance of all XP gains on the network and more!

We also listened to your feedback regarding cost, and we've adjusted the prices of these new companions accordingly. We hope Companions are now more accessible to players who want to start collecting.


Special thanks to our Creative Team members who helped craft some of these amazing critters. Coming soon will be our much anticipated LEVELING UPDATE!

The hype is real. We just added over 130 new items to Mystery Boxes on Hypixel, including 2 brand new categories AND a new Crafted Box! But that's not all - you can now craft any regular Mystery Box item you haven't yet found using Mystery Dust. Read on to find out more.

WE'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER BOX
You read correctly - we've added over 130 items to the existing Mystery Box! We have 11 new suits with crazy abilities including Mermaid, Firefighter, Necromancer, Baker, Bumblebee and more! Activate new gadgets like the Flying Carpet, Diving Board, Meteorite and Grappling Hook! There's also pet Rabbits, tons of hats, and lots of other cool items for you to discover and play with.

mbox-newspost-gif1.gif

We've also invented 2 new types of item: animated Emotes and Gestures! Both can be found in Mystery Boxes - you can activate them through your inventory, or by using the chat commands /gesture or /emote. Hover over the icons in the new Emotes & Gestures section of your inventory to find out more!

mbox-newspost-gif2.gif
Did you know you can support the Hypixel Server by buying Mystery Box bundles on our official store? Click here to see!

WANT AN ITEM? CRAFT IT!

Following feedback from the community, we've added a new system that gives you an easy way to craft any item found in regular Mystery Boxes using Mystery Dust.

mbox-update-1.png

All you need to do is open your Lobby inventory, find the item you'd like to craft, and click it! You can find out how much dust it costs by hovering over the item - if you don't have enough it'll tell you how much extra you need. This also works for Housing cosmetic items and themes that can be found in Mystery Boxes - just head to your Housing Plot and open the block selection menu to start crafting.

Mystery Dust can currently be found by opening Mystery Boxes - so even if you don't get the item you want, you still get a benefit from opening boxes!

CRAFTED BOX #2
For the hardcore collectors out there, we've added the new Crafted Box #2 featuring 7 legendary cosmetic items not found anywhere else on the Hypixel server! Can you collect all seven unique Crafted Box items?

-----

We hope you enjoy all this great new content as much as our team enjoyed crafting it! Support for Hypixel comes from you, the players, and we appreciate any help you're able to give us - you can buy Mystery Box bundles, Ranks, Boosters and more on our store (link), and make sure to tell your friends how much fun you have playing on the server!

Coming very soon are NEW COMPANIONS and the NETWORK LEVEL update! Click below to see a sneaky teaser of one of our new little friends:

THE MINECRAFT
GENERATION

How a clunky Swedish computer game is teaching
hundreds of millions of children to master the digital world.

You can also check out the article in the print issue at your local newsaagent.
To visit the New York Times Magazine Minecraft World, all you need to do is:
  • Directly connect to the Server Address nytmag.hypixel.net on Minecraft Java for PC / Mac

We're very excited to debut this Featured World and hope you enjoy exploring it as much as we enjoyed being part of creating it. Why not show someone who doesn't know about Minecraft and ask them for their perspective?

Special thanks to Christoph Niemann, the New York Times Magazine and the Hypixel Build Team for making this project a reality.

Hey guys! Starting from today, you can now send Cosmetic Mystery Box Gifts to your friends!

Here’s how it works:

Step 1) Purchase a pack of Cosmetic Mystery Box Gifts on our store at store.hypixel.net
Note: Mystery Boxes found via playing on the server as normal are not tradeable. Only the Gift packs bought on the store are tradeable. All mystery box contents are cosmetic only.

Step 2) Once your purchase is complete and you have received your gift pack of cosmetics, visit a Mystery Vault located in any lobby.
mysteryvault.jpg

Step 3) Click on the new Mystery Gift Inventory icon on the bottom left of that menu.
giftinventory_new.jpg

Step 4) Here, you can see the Mystery Box gift pack(s) you purchased previously.
5giftpack_new.jpg

Step 5) After you’ve clicked on the pack of Mystery Boxes you want to send, a menu with all your friends will appear. Click on the friend you want to send the gift pack to!

If you’re having trouble finding the friend you want to send the gift to, you can type /gift followed by the name of your friend.​

Step 6) Confirm and you’re done! Your friend will receive a chat message and the next time he or she visits the Mystery Vault, the gift will be there!

Please note that you must be Network Level 5 (or higher) in order to be able to send gifts.

By sending gifts to your friends, you will receive cool and unique rewards! Inside the Gift Inventory menu, you will find the Gift Contributor Rewards.

The more gifts you send, the better the cosmetic rewards! Not only will you receive free Mystery Boxes for yourself, but you will also receive the following unique cosmetic items only available to those who send a lot of gifts to their friends!

  • The Legendary Gift Giver Hat allows you show everyone how generous you are by showing how many gifts you have given to your friends!
  • The Legendary Surprise Suit allows you to transform into a gift and let other players interact with you by right-clicking!
  • The Legendary Gifterino Companion spawns four cute little gifts that follow you around in lobbies!
For now we only sell Mystery Box gifts but in the future we plan to have more options. Giving Mystery Boxes to a friend using this system is more secure, and you even get some rewards for doing so! This is only the beginning of Gifting.

We've updated SkyWars with a brand new ranked competitive mode, plus new maps, kits, perks, achievements and more!

New Mode: Ranked SkyWars
Ranked SkyWars is a brand new gamemode built around balanced competitive play. Starting with Iron Armour, 4 solo players enter a high-stakes deathmatch - but only one can win!

This mode features new kits and perks balanced for competitive fun, plus you can see your rank on our global leaderboard.

Ranked SkyWars also features a rating system with monthly rewards (to be announced)! If you've played Arena Brawl recently you'll already know the system, but if you'd like to know more just click the spoiler button below:

- For every win up to 500 rating, you gain +25 points
- For every win after 500 rating, you get +5 points. This lowers by 1 for every 1000 rating, to a minimum of 1.
- Up to 100 rating, you do not lose rating
- After 100 rating, you lose 1 point per loss. This increases by 1 for every 100 rating you gain up to a maximum of -25.
- Every 100 rating is a milestone segment which you cannot drop below. For example, if you have 150, you can only drop to 100. If you have 310 rating, you will stay at that rating, and only start losing rating above 400.

Each month we'll be giving out rewards automatically! Try your best to get your rating as high as possible to gain the most prizes.

The Top 1% / 5% / 10% will get the Diamond / Gold / Iron prize tiers respectively.
At the end of each game, you are told what % you are in, as well as your overall position.

In the future, we plan to add at least one more tier beyond Diamond (Emerald)

Ranked mode is available to play now in the SkyWars lobby. Good luck!
