As we are just getting started in 2020, we have decided to take a more aggressive approach to combat cheaters and we are doing massive investments towards anti-cheat, tools, and moderation.
In fact, we already opened three full-time anti-cheat developer positions, go check it out if you are interested!
There are a lot of things worked on behind the scenes that we can't go into detail about, however, there is one project we're especially excited to talk about: the Replay System.
For the first time in Hypixel history, we will be able to go back in time and catch cheaters at any moment without the help of videos.
At first, the tool will be used by the staff as a moderation tool, but eventually, we want to have the Replay System in the hands of players as well, for their own enjoyment and it’s also a great way to make YouTube highlights! No modded client needed, all of this is server-side and supported by us.
Please read the whole thread for more information!

As a celebration for the new year, we are happy to announce the next Hypixel Tournament - Quakecraft Solos!
If you don't know about tournaments or the Tournament Hall, or if you'd like to know more about some of the terms in this post, make sure to take a look at the first tournament post.
