    So for those of you who don't know me, I'm AgentK (AgentKid in game). I'm one of the developers for Hypixel.net. I figured I'd start posting patch notes of the things we change when we change them. Major updates, ones that require us to take down the network, will have their own thread, while minor updates will be appended onto the most recent major update. Here's the first three patch notes:

    ==================== Update #1 ====================
    April 20th, 2013
    • Moved to our new servers, providing 500 Minecraft server instances
    • Upgraded player capacity to 1,500 players.
    • Added MasterControl, a custom developed server management and load balancing system
    • Tiny performance improvements here and there
    ==================== Update #2 ====================
    April 27th, 2013
    • Optimized MasterControl organization, fixed multi-bungee system
    • Fixed Walls exploit of using pistons on walls
    • Fixed PVP being disabled in walls (sorry about that one!)
    • Added more Walls servers
    • Attempted to fix signs not working properly
    ==================== Update #3 ====================
    May 6th, 2013
    • Upgraded MasterControl, adding AdventureManager to handle the new Adventure system Working on this
    • Re-added Adventures with 180 high-efficiency dynamic minecraft server instances Working on this
    • Fixed NullPool, the problem that has plagued MasterControl since last week
    • Rewrote networking system to be more stable/efficient
    • Lowered price of Cold War map to 10 coins
    • Added new railgun in Quake, the BFG, with 1.1s reload time that fires blue fireworks on kill - 17000 Coins
    • Added armor in Quake, cosmetic only
      • Soldier Kit - Leather armor - 650 Coins
      • Elite Kit - Blue leather armor - 2250 Coins
      • Majestic Kit - Yellow leather armor - 2250 Coins
      • Commander Kit - Black leather armor - 2250 Coins
    • Moved to a custom build of BungeeCord with custom optimizations and MasterControl integration
    • Added Limbo, an overflow area for when things go haywire or the Main Hub gets full
    • Fixed animals being disabled on all servers (including walls)
    • Fixed signs jumping around while trying to click them
    • Moved to new sign numbering system

    They strike fear into the hearts of your enemies.

    Other than looking cool, they don't do anything.

    It's just a list of all the technical things that we do to improve things. Disregard the things you don't understand, they're just technical improvements that make things faster or run more smoothly.

    I think i speak for all the non VIPS out there who regulary play on hypixels server that we cant WAIT for the adventure lobby to come out. Take your time and work out the kinks, but please give out some more info! Like, can you choose who you play with or is it random? Can you make a private group or do you have to play with others? Do you unlock maps? Please give out some more info!
