Updated Shop

Now featuring the new Ultimate Skill, Runes and Hats.

Rune System
[​IMG]
Runes are applied to your weapon and only one rune at a time can be activated. They are expensive as they are meant to be slowly upgraded over time.

Ultimate Skills
[​IMG]
To add more diversity and customization to Arena Brawl, we added the Ultimate Skill that can only be used once per game. For now there's only 2 skills available but we plan to add a lot more.

Hats
[​IMG]
If you are lucky enough with the Magical Chest, you will receive cool unique hats that will say random things to your enemies in the Arena Brawl games! Collect them all, just like Pokemons!

Mega Walls Tournament

Here's some information about the upcoming first Mega Walls Tournament that will be occurring the next weekend.

When?
The tournament will last around 36 hours on March 15-16.
Starting at 9:00 am US EST saturday and ending 36 hours later at 9:00 pm US EST sunday.

How do I enter?
Just by playing Mega Walls on that weekend when the Tournament happens, you will be automatically participating gaining rating and acquiring tournament tokens.

How does it work?
There will be a stats called "Tournament Rating" that will act like a ladder system to sort out the top players. Wins and final kills will reward rating. Losing, leaving and dying will subtract rating. You can't go below 0 rating, don't worry about that. You will be able to see your Tournament Rating on the scoreboard in the Mega Walls lobby. Leaving before the game ends means you have to stay till the game end to get your rating if your team wins, otherwise it counts as a loss for you.
Example (Not the official numbers)
Wins a game: +10 Tournament Rating
Final Kill a player: +1 Tournament Rating (Maximum of 10 per games)
Lose or leave game before it ends: -6 Tournament Rating
Final Death: -1 Tournament Rating
What we might do if we have time before weekend: The higher your rating is, the rating gain/lose changes, making it harder as you go up and easier for new players to climb to the top.

This will sort out the top 20 players and the top guilds.


What are the prizes?
We will be giving over a grand total of $2000 worth of credits on the Hypixel store shared amongst the top 20 players.
The top 20 players will also receive extra Tournament Tokens that can be exchanged for unique perks/kits and more on the Hypixel Network in any games. The Mega Walls tournament perks will be added in the next few days in the Mega Walls shop.
Creeper pets for the top 5 and an extra pet Blaze for the number 1.
More prizes will be added in the next few days.
Note that the top 5 will get a large % of the store credits.

Guild Finals
We figured we could have an extra tournament for the top guilds. We will take the 2 best guilds and make them versus each other in a private 10v10 Mega Walls game on March 23.
The event will be recorded and the winners will receive 100,000 guild coins.

Tournament Tokens
Every time there is a tournament going, you will be able to earn a maximum of 20 Tournament Tokens by playing games. The top players of a tournament will receive additional Tournament Tokens of course, making them a step ahead on kool unique perks, but still making those perks available in the future for participants that were not fortunate enough to win.

Tournament Tokens will be global, which means you could earn yours in Mega Walls but use them in the Quakecraft shop. You can spend to unlock unique perks, items, kits and much more.

Tournament Tokens will not and never be in the online store.

PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING
This tournament system is not perfect but will allow everyone to participate and get some tokens. Because in the end, not everyone can win.

We can't do organized matches with over 400,000 participants, we need to find out who are the best players in ladders, just like League of Legends, World of Warcraft or any other games. They didn't do organized tournament before they knew who were their top players and then organize professional tournament with them. World of Warcraft for example had this place called Arena Tournament where you would fight your way up with rating, then the top teams would get to participate in the championships.

I want to have public ladder tournament, not private where only a selected 100 people get to play over 400,000. Now we are going to have a weekend full of people playing Mega Walls. Even solo players can have fun this weekend, however I suggest playing with friends to make your journey easier!


Official Sponsors
Thanks to our sponsors MCProHosting for giving us the stability and opportunity to host the tournament!

Tournament Tokens are usable in all shops! (New Blitz Kits, Quakecraft Trigger, etc)
More info will be released in the following days.

Arena Brawl BETA
Edit: Beta Released to VIP's and up!
The version you will be playing is far from the complete version of the game, but we need a lot of testing since it’s a competitive game.

Herobrine III
Herobrine III is coming too! We are currently in testing phase, adding NPCs for storyline and such. There is over 24500 command blocks, it is our biggest and most intense adventure map.
We are planning to release a few days after 1.8.

The Arcade Games
After we are done with the Arena Brawl in a few weeks, we will be working on The Arcade Games and trust me, this is gonna be a lot of fun! The Arcade Coins will be exchangeable for other games.


Why did we change hosts?
A few months ago we changed hosts, but we all underestimated the scale at which the Hypixel Network is growing resulting in some issues.
In the past few days the old server was getting DDoS over 15 times a day and the old data center couldn’t fulfill our needs. They couldn’t handle our internal network and we couldn’t install DDoS protection meaning it was vulnerable to attacks and network crashes.
We had more than 6 hours of downtime in the last week of usage, players were slowly leaving because of lag, disconnections and instability of the server.
For us it was a nightmare; instead of working on new features/games/maps we had to stay up all night to do system administration to make sure everything was working, it was horrible.

Most of you should have similar, if not better, ping. If you notice higher ping it’s because we moved to Central US based servers and our DDoS protection systems may cause a slight increase in ping, this is because all traffic has to be filtered before it gets to us. To counter that we upgraded all our hardware to more powerful machines and we are going to make even more improvements. All this, coupled with our newly announced EU servers, and you should have an excellent experience with us! As a competitive player myself, I know it is very important on a PvP server to have good ping and I’ll make sure I deliver the best options I can. Keep in mind that we can’t get rid of DDoS as we wish; the Hypixel Network is probably one of the biggest target of DDoS attacks for Minecraft. If you experience lag or disconnections sometimes, it’s most likely our DDoS protection provider having issues, so far our new servers have 100% uptime.

Now that we are stable, we can get work on bringing you new content! I'll do my best to post more news and patch notes on the website now that we have some more time.

Have fun and get ready for Arena Brawl!
