Happy Year of the Rat! As the lunar year comes to a close, we have some Lunar New Year themed content for everyone to enjoy, with plenty of rat or mouse themed quests and cosmetics. Here's a breakdown of what's new on the server:
The return of Bed Wars Lunar Loot Chests, including some brand new cosmetics!
New Lunar Loot Chests for SkyWars and Murder Mystery, with brand new cosmetics along with applicable cosmetics from previous years!
New Seasonal Quests for SkyWars, Bed Wars, Murder Mystery, TNT Games and Mega Walls, each with their own exclusive cosmetic to unlock
New limited time Collectibles for lobbies available in the Ingame Store!
we're here today to talk about some of the more hidden work that has been going on for around two months. We work a lot on stuff that doesn't get a news post, because the technical details are hard to grasp for most of our users. We hope this blog post gives you a better understanding of the work that usually goes unnoticed, that there is more work being done than just game updates. We will go into detail about the process of replacing something called the PrivateAPI and how you - the users - profit from this change!
The year is coming to an end, and from the whole Hypixel team we'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! 2019 was an amazing year for us, breaking multiple records and achieving some of our longest goals. But of course, we won't stop there! We're looking forward to 2020 and what more we have planned. Today we wanted to take a look back at 2019 with a round-up and similar to last year, we're allowing you to generate your own unique "Year on Hypixel" to share with friends and on social media.
It's the holidays in SkyBlock, the Winter Event is here, along with a few other changes!
As a quick note, SkyBlock is still in maintenance, read more about that here.
▶ Winter Island
The 3rd permanent Event of SkyBlock is out, in the form of an island.
Like always, we won't spoil much about the island, but here is all the necessary information:
The Winter Island is opened during the entire Late Winter month, every SkyBlock year (roughly 11 hours straight every 5 days and 4 hours).
You can access the island from the SkyBlock Menu, or your own Jerry, or from the Jerry located at the Event Stand in the Village during the entire month.
While the island is pretty calm, for one-hour things get pretty chaotic, as the workshops are under attack, defend them at all costs! For that you will need to talk to Frosty at the entrance of the island, he will reward you his Snow Cannon, very useful!
The Event, and the rest of the island, mostly reward Gifts.
There are 3 types of gifts, all with similar rewards, but Green has slightly better rewards than White, and Red Gifts are the best ones.
To open a Gift: You can go to any player, except your co-op members, and right-click them with a gift in hand, you'll both get the rewards!
