May’s News Letter

It has been a hectic month, as any month that passes by us is the same! Only a few minor updates happened last month simply because we are getting ready to drop 1.6 and move on to only using 1.7 in preparation for the 1.8 update! Here’s a small look-in into how it will go down:

1.6 to 1.7!
It is finally happening, we dropped support for the old 1.6 support. However, we are expecting a lot and it’ll be a rough few days for us to sort them out and fixing them, it is up to you guys to help us detect them also, so we will be reading the bug section of the forums day and night until everything is more stable!

Arcade Games
As seen a few days prior, I have released a contest to see who can come up with the best Arcade Lobby out of all of you, the contest ended and we are currently picking a winner! The Arcade beta is set to be released within the next few days/weeks, with over 4 gamemodes implemented and a bunch more to come in the following months! The Arcade framework took us quite a bit of time to work on, but now that it's done we can literally make minigames in less than a week! It's gonna be a CRAZY summer.

Arena Updates
New skills and more bug fixes. However we are still looking to perfect the game and make the skills as balanced as possible for your enjoyment! We always look at suggestions on what can be implemented, whether it’s in the Magical Chest, a buyable or a new upcoming way of getting it, read on to find out! We have fixed some major issues with Freeze Breath, and if all needs more balancing we will try our best to get on to it. Development on the Utility skills is still underway, as well as a few extra other skills, like a couple new Ultimates and a new Support one!
Note that the "beta" season will end very soon, so stay tuned!

Quests
Yes, the long awaited quests are about to release! With the upcoming new skills in Arena, workings on Blitz 2.0 and a few new upgrades in quake, this will be a perfect time to release quests. The system itself will not be a huge brain scratcher. It’ll currently cap out at level 20, we are going to slowly release more and more quests as time goes and with quests you can unlock:
- Vanity Tokens
- Experience to higher levels
- New items in each minigame!
- Like the new ultimate in Arena (Brood Mother)!
The quests are a little something that will make the server as a whole feel like a huge RPG and with time we gonna improve the system and make it very awesome!

Shop Reworks
As you noticed, Paintball and Walls have received its style of shop just like Arena has. In fact, we are planning to rework most shops to look the same, currently with Quake next in line. You can follow MrCryptKeeper’s twitter on updates of how he’ll rework the shops, as it’s mainly him doing them!

New Leaderboard System
As mentioned a little earlier, I am planning on reworking the leaderboards to drop “Seasonal” and making them Weekly. With this system you can receive trophy points, which will be trackable on the future new website as well as in-game! The trophy points system is still in early development, and really is only used for bragging rights for now. More information will be released soon.

Blitz Survival Games - Balance Patch #1
Some of your least favorite kits are getting some buffs.

Hypixel Upgrade
We recently got some more admins to speed up the production of minigames and updates, it's gonna be quite epic. I'm very excited to get back to work on new stuff and I can only say that you guys will have a lot to do on the server and will never get bored :)

Make sure you follow me on Twitter and Facebook for sneak peak and fun stuff!

We are updating all games/lobbies to 1.7 and officially dropping support for 1.6 versions of Minecraft in preparation for the Arcade and Quests.

Please report any new bugs to the appropriate section here: http://hypixel.net/forums/server-bug-reports.35/

We should be done fixing most of the major issues by tonight.

Thank you for your patience.

Good news for Blitz Survival Games players!

For the past few months I've been having issues with Blitz SG updates because most of the admins don't have much time to play so the balancing was slow and painful. I went ahead and made a group "Hypixel Elites" that will be helping me balance not only Blitz but also all games on the network.
Since yesterday I've been consulting and we decided to start off with some buffs to some underpowered kits.
Note that if you are one of the top players on the server, you might get invited to the "Hypixel Elites" to help us balance the team, however we do not accept applications, we only invite people that we feel comfortable working with.

The first kits to receive changes are;
Wolftamer, Creepertamer, Baker, Meatmaster, Blaze, Archer, Troll and Armorer.
You can see a list of the upcoming changes here.

The changes are being worked on right now and you should expect the changes to be rolled out within the next few days.

#HYPE
Big thanks to Pr0lin3 for this one!

Update Changelog (5/6/14)
I've decided to nick name this update the "oh god why" update, why? Because spiders. This is the Update Changelog for 5/6/14, we're (only somewhat) sure you're going to love it.
  • Arena
    • Changes
      • Healing Totems now remove all debuffs when healing.
      • Explosive skills no longer set off mines.
      • Freezing Breath now does 200 damage instead of 220.
    • Additions
      • Brand new "Broodmother" ultimate skill!
        • Requires you to be level 10 to unlock.
        • Summons a large spider that will chase down and poison the targeted enemy player, dealing 200 damage over 6 seconds. When slain, the Broodmother spawns 4 spiderlings that deal 5 damage each per attack.
        • This is why you don't let Cryptkeeper make skills.
    • Fixes
      • Fixed Proximity Mines not properly disappearing after 2 seconds.
      • Fixed Tree of Life team colors sometimes not disappearing.
  • Walls
Also, here's a sneak preview of the new all-in-one shop headed to Quake!
We've got so much more content headed your way, stay tuned!

(And there may or may not be new maps on their way to Paintball. Maybe.)

We're investigating the cause of various connection issues that are being reported to us, but here's some things you can do to help:

  1. Try rebooting your computer first. Often times, players' issues connecting to the server are caused by something on their own home network, such as their own computer.
  2. Try rebooting your router. Your router/modem connects your house to the internet, and if it's having issues, it can intermittently block certain traffic.
  3. Try running Minecraft from a different internet connection. Sometimes internet providers block certain video game connections because they don't like the extra strain on their network, so try from a friend's house if possible
If none of these help, please email us at [email protected]. Include your in-game name, your IP address (the big blue text on http://whatismyipaddress.com/ ), the operating system you are running, the Minecraft version you are running, include "Connection Issues" in the subject, and:
  • If you're on a PC, open 'Command Prompt' and type 'tracert mc.hypixel.net'. Copy-paste or screenshot the output of that, and include it in the email.
  • If you're on Linux or a Mac, open 'Terminal' and type 'traceroute mc.hypixel.net'. Copy-paste the output of that, and include it in the email.
The traceroute should help me to determine if it's caused by something larger, like an internet provider being down, or if it's something on our end. I'll investigate each one of them and try to fix them, but, depending on how many I get, I may not be able to reply to all of them. Keep trying to connect for the next few hours/days after that, as the issue may resolve itself. If it spontaneously starts working again, please reply to the email you sent and say that it spontaneously started working again.
