To end the year we're happy to host the next Hypixel Tournament - Bed Wars 4v4! 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. If you missed out on previous tournaments, no big deal! You don't need to have played in previous ones to participate. You are on an even footing every tournament. ▶ How to participate? This tournament will take place on December 13! It will last 48 hours total, from 6:00 PM EST December 13 to 6:00 PM EST December 15. During this tournament, the Bed Wars 4v4 NPC will take you to the Tournament Hall. Continue reading to learn all the details! ▶ Tournament Rules Brackets & Points There will be 5 brackets in this tournament: Starter, Gold, Diamond, Master, Grandmaster. As with previous tournaments, brackets serve for matchmaking. In higher brackets you will play against better players, but also earn more points! For this tournament, points are simple. You earn points for winning a game and breaking beds/lose points for losing a game and losing a bed. You climb brackets by getting wins and in higher brackets keeping your bed in tact. If you play with the same players for the whole tournament, you all will have the same amount of points. Spoiler: Click for more info on the Bracket point system. Starter Bracket: Win: +10 Points Break Bed: +3 Points Win = Instant promotion to Gold Bracket Loss = Stay in Starter Bracket ----------- Gold Bracket: Win: +15 Points Break Bed: +5 Points Win = Instant promotion to Diamond Bracket.

For this tournament, we're trying out a new system of limiting the maximum amount of games you can play, rather than limiting playtime. All players will be able to play up to 75 games of the tournament. A game counts towards this limit as soon as the game starts. ▶ Tournament Mode: 4v4 This tournament is based on the recently added 4v4 mode of Bed Wars. Two teams of four players fight it out in classic Bed Wars fashion! Obsidian has been removed. Dragons are removed in favor of a world border that will shrink towards the end of the game. Being outside of the border will deal damage each second. The speed of the game such as generators is increased over the 4v4v4v4 mode. Maps For the tournament, we felt the current two maps where not enough for diverse game play, so we have decided to add 3 new maps in preparation. All three of the new maps plus the existing maps are out and ready for you to try right now. Be sure to check them out before the tourney and make new strategies! ▶ Tournament Rewards Tributes Tributes are the rewards currency of tournaments. Your first win will grant +10 Tributes. Each win after will reward +3 Tributes. Each bed broken will reward +1 Tribute. You can gain up to 100 tributes during the tournament. There are 4 new items in the Tribute Shop: Bed Wars 4v4 Tournament Banner Cluck Stack Bed Wars Shopkeeper Skin Log Varients of Bed Wars Wood Skins (A new cosmetic for Bed Wars!

You can play in a party up to the maximum team size of 4 players. > What about our stats? Stats tracking during the tournament will be independent of the regular game. > Why a Bed Wars 4v4 tournament? We wanted to end the year with another tournament. But due to the time to develop a tournament for a different game than before we would've been unlikely to have it ready in time. So we decided to try an existing game that supports the framework but a different mode than before. We are still working on a tournament with a game that has not yet been hosted PS: There will be a 2x Bed Wars experience multiplier during the tournament!
