We are happy to announce that for the last month we've been working closely with the Hypixel Player Council and the Community to bring a big update to UHC. Today, this update gets to see the light of day!
▶ Speed UHC Moved to the UHC Champions Lobby For quite some time we've been discussing internally what to do regarding Speed UHC. Due to the new Compass Menu, new games coming out and other reasons, we were worried that we would be hurting Speed UHC and it's player base by moving it to a separate page in the Compass. Many ideas were considered, but one stood out and stuck, that idea was to move Speed UHC into the UHC Champions Lobby. Moving an entire game would obviously mean that we would have to change a lot of things to the economy, lobby, leaderboards, achievements etc, all of which we managed to do nicely and we're happy with the outcome. This will all be detailed in this thread.
For years SkyBlock has been one of the most requested games on the Network, today we are releasing our own version of SkyBlock in the Prototype lobby!
▶ What is SkyBlock?
SkyBlock has been around the Minecraft community for more than 7 years, longer than the Hypixel Network! Even though the game has evolved a lot through the years, the idea remains the same:
Players start on a tiny island with almost nothing and quickly start unlocking and collecting resources, expand their island, combat monsters, then create farms and explore all their options.
There are many ways to play SkyBlock, and we have decided to create our own special way.
▶ How to play Hypixel SkyBlock?
You can go in the Prototype Lobby, or you can directly click on SkyBlock in the compass. There is also a SkyBlock NPC in the main lobby!
You can also easily join using the /play skyblock command.
SkyBlock can be played alone or with friends in Co-op! See more co-op information below.
You can play SkyBlock on any Minecraft version, but we recommend using 1.8.9 as it is still the most stable version!
▶ Why Prototype?
The game is still in development - there are "coming soon" features and a lot of balancing to do - but during the last few weeks of testing we have been having a lot of fun playing. If we are having fun, then the game is ready for prototype!
As such, please make sure you report any bugs or exploits as soon as possible so we can fix them fast. The best way to do so is to use our bug report form.

In a thread recently we discussed ideas for creating a "Season Pass" for the server, which would include many rewards.
Today we're happy to release the first season of the Hypixel Battle Pass! Including over 100 rewards, ranging from Mystery Boxes, to brand new cosmetics. And, we're also introducing a new feature for lobbies, statuses!
Today we're releasing a whole new Game Menu to the server that provides a cleaner and less cluttered layout. As well as the ability for players to be able to customize some slots to their liking!
The new Game Menu features 12 customizable slots that can be changed to any game, or even a "Quick Play" icon to any permanent mode on the network just by right clicking the icon. There are 100 different icons that can be selected!
