It's time for our fourth Hypixel Tournament, Cops and Crims - Defusal! 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? The Cops and Crims tournament will take place on October 25th. It will last 48 hours total, from 6:00 PM EST October 25 to 6:00 PM EST October 27. There will be a Tournament Mode NPC in the Cops and Crims lobby (as well as the tournament Hall). You will also be reminded about the tournament in a few different lobbies across the server.

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 round and lose points for losing a game. You climb brackets by getting wins and can maintain brackets by winning a minimum amount of rounds. 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.

Weapon+ Armor Upgrades All upgrades are unlocked and maxed out for all players. Excluding price upgrades, which are disabled for all players. Resource Pack This game does use a resource pack, we do not enforce this, we do however heavily recommend it. We're aware of some issues where players may be unable to get resources packs to download via the client. So you may also download the resource pack directly from here and install it manually prior to joining the game and disable "Server Resource Packs" to avoid these issues. Maps The following maps will be playable in the tournament mode: Overgrown Reserve Alleyway Sandstorm Carrier Temple Atomic For this tournament, once you die, you will be unable to leave the maps spawn while spectating. ▶ Tournament Rewards Tributes Tributes are the rewards currency of tournaments. Your first win will grant +20 Tributes. Each win after will reward +5 Tributes. You can gain up to 100 tributes during the tournament. There are 5 new items in the Tribute Shop: Ping Status: New status for all players that shows your ping above your head.

You can play in a party up to the maximum team size of 5 players. > What about our stats? Stats tracking during the tournament will be independent of the regular game. > Why host a Cops and Crims tournament? We feel that the overall gameplay of Cops and Crims makes it a great place to try out a team vs team tournament. We also want to see the player experience with a game that isn't the "normal" vanilla PVP. PS: There will be a 3x Cops and Crims coins multiplier during the tournament!
