This is Captain Keeper speaking, please fasten your seat belts as we prepare for takeoff. We’ll be launching this announcement covering the latest Mega Walls update and the (massive) changelog for 6/1/14. We’ll be flying at a cruising altitude of awesome with an expecting landing time of never. If you need help, please hit the button above your seat to ring one of those brand-spanking new Jr. Helpers and get it all worked out. Let's go to it, yee-haw!

Mega Walls just got two amazing new maps, Frozen and Kingdom, however only one is prime for building a snowman as it turns out. Additionally, the brand new Golem class was introduced. Golem requires network level 4 and has these knockout abilities:
  • Active Ability: Iron Punch - Creates a hexagon causing damage to enemies.
  • Passive Ability I: Iron Heart - Upon killing a player you get absorption hearts for 5 seconds.
  • Passive Ability II: Iron Constitution - When hit by an arrow you get Damage and Knockback Resistance for 2-5 seconds.
  • Gather Ability: Momentum - Grants Speed I when you break a block.
We've also introduced a spot for the Blaze kit, along with two new mystery slots. Make sure to stay tuned to what those could turn out to be in the near future, there's no way anything could go wrong with a Blaze class! Now onto the changelog for 6/1/14 which I think is our largest one yet...

Now, go play. Or don’t, but it is a double coins weekend. ;)

We are ready to start the VIP BETA of The Arcade Games!

We are going to start this testing phase with 3 minigames;
  • Creeper Attack
  • Party Games 1
  • Ender Spleef
In the next few days we are going to release;
  • Bounty Hunters
  • Mob Hunt
  • Party Games 2
  • Throw Out
  • Sky Wars
  • Mini Walls
The VIP beta will last a few days and then we are going to let non-vip test it out when we feel confident about the games stability. I don't think we will need a lot of testing since we are not having shops/upgrades for the games, they are pure fun games and not much progression so you can just play with friends and have a blast, perfect for the summer!

Quests and achievements will also be added to The Arcade Games in the next few weeks.
This update is meant to have fun and we are going to also update all older games to reflect the new message/feature system to make everything more user-friendly and give you guys a better server.

Hey guys! Some of you may have noticed that the Adventure Lobby is currently offline for maintenance, and I wanted to explain what the maintenance is and why we had to take the system offline rather than release the update slowly in the background.

First, let me start off by saying that the old system was VERY old and written in a rush at the start of the server, and had tons of problems with crashes and random dropouts, especially since the 1.7 update. Because of these problems, we decided to completely scrap the old system and write a new one that works differently, in a much more efficient manner. Cryptkeeper was tasked with this, and he's come up with an excellent new system that allows us to have a lot more flexibility with what we can do now in Adventures.

Unfortunately, the new system was not compatible with the old system, so we had to completely shut down the old system before even setting up the new system. The rewrite also required some updates to BungeeCord, which get released slowly over the course of 12+ hours so that we don't have to kick players off the network. Because of this, we won't have the Adventure Lobby back online until Tuesday afternoon/evening EST, but when it's back it should be much more stable and with no lag.

So, this is the second time I've written this changelog (closed the tab the first time by accident) - so we're gonna skip the fancy and only-somewhat-comedic introduction and get straight to what you guys want to see and give you a quick overview of what you can expect to see headed your way.

And if you haven't had the chance to checkout the awesome new Quests system (always worth a second look), make sure to check it out along with the new Blitz balancing changes.

Hey guys! This morning, we released Update #23, the Miscellaneous Update. We called it that because there weren't any big changes or new feature introductions, just tweaking of things. Three major changes have been made:

Blitz Kit Update #1:
We've released the first major Blitz Survival kits update! There were a lot of changes, and it's easier to list them in spreadsheet form, so you can see our Google Spreadsheet here. The lobbies haven't all been rebooted to reflect these changes, but most have and the rest will be rebooted to load the new changes shortly.

Experience per game:
You now get experience for playing games, whether you win or lose. The amounts of experience are as follows:
  • 5 per win, 2 per loss in Arena, TNTGames, Quakecraft, Paintball, Blitz, and VampireZ
  • 10 per win, 5 per loss in Walls
  • 15 per win, 5 per loss in MegaWalls
To get the experience, you must stay till the end of the game!

Experience per hour:
You now get experience simply for being on the Hypixel Network! At the moment, it's 50 experience per hour that you're online, but we may tweak this in the coming days.
For information about what experience is and what you can do with it, see my previous patch notes.

Coming up feature:
We managed to implement quest progression into tooltips, it is currently being tested in the VIP lobby and will be rolled out everywhere soon!

edit: We can confirm that Blaze kit will receive a buff in the next few days after some testing.
