A massive new UHC update has just been released, adding a ton of new content to UHC including new professions, kits and prestige kits, recipes, extra ultimates, balances, bug fixes and more! We can't thank the UHC community enough for their help and input on this update. We really enjoyed the feedback and tried to incorporate as much of it as possible when deciding what to do. See below for a full list of changes, or play them live on the server right now. ▶ New Lobby With this update comes the introduction of a brand new lobby. Much like the other new lobbies, the new UHC lobby includes join NPCs and the new leaderboards for Team/Solo Wins and Kills. 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 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 ▶ New Kits + Kit Changes Some awesome changes have been made to UHC kits, including the addition of 2 brand new kits, price reductions and kit prestige levels. We also added a kit selector in the pregame lobby! Prestige Kits All kits have been upgraded to include a prestige. Once you have fully maxed out a kit, you can unlock the ability to prestige your kit, giving the chance to gain a special prestige item at the beginning of the game. This can range from enchanted iron gear to enchantment books!
