1. Hey everyone! Today we are rolling a small update to the Blitz Lobby which brings it in line with our new NPC and Hologram-driven lobby layouts. You can check it out live on the server, or read on to find out more about why we are making these changes to lobbies.

    ▶ New Blitz Game Lobby
    Fresh off the press is a new Blitz lobby with its brand new parkour, leaderboards and hidden secrets. As with all our new lobbies, we've tried to keep the spirit of the old lobby whilst improving its overall functionality and accessibility.

    As you may have noticed we are in the process of updating several lobbies for older games. We want (and need) to do this for several reasons:
    • The new lobby format is fully translatable, which means we can change the language of things in the lobbies for both Hypixel China and non-English languages on the western server
    • Our data shows that newer players find it much easier to navigate and play games with NPCs as opposed to signs. This means new players are more likely to try your favorite older games
    • Changing from signs to NPCs and moving spawn position means on average you get into games faster. It may only be a couple of seconds, but those seconds add up to more time getting kills :D
    • Our new Leaderboard system makes it much easier for us to add new stats / leaderboards, plus is much faster, more scalable and fully translatable
    • Moving the portal farther back from spawn means no more annoying portal noise when idling and chatting
    • More flat terrain means you have more space to use fun lobby cosmetics you have unlocked like Trampolines and Diving Boards
    • Some of our older game lobbies are very old. It's nice to revisit them and fix some small long-standing design issues :)
    Overall we think this new lobby improves the functionality of Blitz whilst staying true to the 'feel' of the original lobby, but we'd love to hear what you think. Check it out and let us know in the comments :)

    We hope you enjoy the new lobby and look forward to some more cool stuff coming out soon! :)

    You staff team don't understand Blitz do you, you really don't listen to the community.

    Riveting

    Whatever floats your boat, staff team! You're really doing a great job maintaining this server! Keep up the fantastic work. ._.

  6. Cool! Will miss the old lobby, but a change of scenery is nice every once in a while!
    Also, cue the Ballroom Blitz song!

  7. Nice. Will check it out as soon as I get on. Can't really see what it looks like with your shaders on xd

    Nvm, I'm stupid. The two clear images look a bit like the old lobby, so I thought it was a before and after shot.
