Hello everyone!

As announced in the discussion thread, we've released an update to Hypixel Experience, which greatly increases the amount of Hypixel Experience you get from playing games!

We received a lot of feedback about how difficult it is to get experience in-game just from playing. To level up quickly, players often resorted to so-called "Exp Parties" instead of actually playing more games. To address this issue and make actually playing games more rewarding, we've made the following changes:

▶ Up to 40% more exp from Quests and Challenges
Quests and challenges give players Hypixel Experience for completing various tasks in games, such as killing a certain number of players, winning a game... All challenges now give 40% more Hypixel Experience than before, and quests give between 20% and 40% more exp - this depends on the quest and how long it takes to complete. If you complete all quests and challenges, you can now get around 35% more Hypixel Experience than before!

▶ Exp for playing games now based on time, increased 10x
The rewards you got for playing games weren't balanced - your time in some games was worth more than in other games, and the rewards weren't very rewarding. We changed this by moving to a time-based system - the amount of Hypixel Experience you get now depends entirely on the amount of time you spent playing. You will get 10 exp for every minute you spend in game. If you win, you get 3.5x that much exp, or 35 per minute.

▶ Party Bonus
When playing in a party, you will get 10% more Hypixel Experience for playing games. We hope this will encourage everyone to spend more time playing with players, making new friends along the way!

▶ Experience for playing Housing
Until now, playing in Housing gave no Hypixel Experience, since the game never "ends" like all our other games do. We've now changed this and made Housing give 10 exp per minute to active players, just like all other games. To get the exp, you need to be actively playing - whether that's building, chatting or even just completing parkours.

▶ Changes to Exp Bags
When a player opens a Gift they received from another player, they radiate with Generosity for one game. Every player in that game is in the end rewarded with a bag of Hypixel Experience, which they can open at the Mystery Vault. This resulted in the creation of so-called "Exp Parties" where a large group of players would get together, all radiating with Generosity, and everybody in the party would get large amounts of Hypixel Experience. Based on feedback, we've decided to impose a limit on the number of Exp Bags you can get from one game.

Starting in April, a maximum of 20 players will be able to radiate with Generosity in one game. Players whose Generosity does not activate in a game because of this cap won't lose their generosity - it'll activate the first game it can without exceeding the limit. This change will go live at the start of April, so anybody that bought gifts with parties in mind will still be able to use them until the end of March.

We hope you enjoy this update! Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Hey all.

We just released The Pit v0.2 to the PTL lobby.

Before going into the details of the update, a word about stat resets (unrelated to prestige resets). We understand The Pit is about personal progression. As such, we are not looking to reset stats if the game sees a full release. BUT! We hope you can understand that we cannot make a 100% commitment on this. Millions of reasons could justify a global reset, we do not want it to happen, but it might.

▶ In a nutshell
  • Prestige system with a whole new layer of upgrades
  • Stats NPC to see how well you're doing
  • Balance changes
  • New perks & upgrades
  • Chat options feature to filter the chat
  • Lots of bugfixes
Last week we also pushed a mid-week patch to the game, read more here.

Today we are excited to launch our latest prototype game The Pit available to play now in the PTL lobby.

Like all PTL games The Pit is currently in-development and you may encounter bugs or other issues. Stats may be reset at any time. This is v0.1 of The Pit - if you like it, please let us know in the comments or on the subforum.

▶ What is The Pit
The Pit is a persistent combat game where you jump into the pit and fight others to level up. It's a simple recurring Kit style game where your kills help level you up over time.

To play The Pit, join the game via the lobby NPC in the Prototype Lobby, wait for the game to load, then jump in the hole or use the launches on the four corners of the spawn area to join in the action.

The Pit is a persistent game. The game is always open (except for maintenance) and you can freely drop in or out. Your item and level progression is saved between games - but be warned, as a PTL game stats may be reset.

Naturally, you can still play with your friends using parties - though we've included some limits and this may change.
