This coming weekend from 13th to the 15th of July (Event has now ended), we are bringing you...

UHC WEEKEND
with
5x COINS
and
5x HYPIXEL EXPERIENCE

for all UHC Quests, UHC Challenges, and all UHC Games played!​

As we mentioned in our last post about the Blitz 5x weekend, this will be a continuation of our attempts to interest more people in older game modes.

This time we went with UHC since Nitroholic_ released two great UHC updates recently to improve the game and add additional value for our players. To see Nitroholic_'s updates, see here and here. If you haven't been playing UHC or just felt the game was a bit too overwhelming, hop into the new Vanilla mode - it's a great way to get started in UHC! Just Vanilla UHC - no recipes, extra ultimates, perks or kits, and only 1 row of hearts!

This small incentive will help more players give UHC ago while playing with their friends and enjoying this fantastic game.

We will also be able to present the data that is gathered from these two events in one of our upcoming Developer Summaries. In addition, we will share what we could learn from the two events as well as if and what we can improve.


So throw out the plans for this weekend...


... it's time to get some UHC going!

Hello!

We just released The Pit v0.3.5 update to the Prototype Lobby.
▶ In a nutshell
  • New Map: Four Seasons
  • New Feature: Mystic Well (Custom Item Enhancement)
  • New Event: Robbery
  • Lots of balance changes
  • Bugfixes
Developer Note [ As spoke about in our July Developer Summary (Here) 1.13 caused a few delays to this update and to make sure you didn't have to wait any longer, we wanted to release the content we have ready.

In May, we hosted Pit Event Contest and we were overwhelmed by the response with over 2500+ submissions. Moving forward to v0.4, we plan to add more of these event ideas and fix any potential bugs that arise from this update.]
For full information, make sure to continue reading.​

Hello Hypixelians,

Welcome to the July Development Summary, where we will be sharing insights into our past, current, and future projects.

Just a quick reminder that anything I share is subject to change during development. I won’t be able to share everything the team is currently working on in this summary, as some of the projects are in very early stages of development and we want to keep some surprises for the community. However, we are aiming to update you on these projects as soon as we can.
