It's crazy how the past couple months have been since we released Season 1 of Skyblock. We have been receiving a lot of suggestions on how to improve the network as a whole and I can't thank you enough for all the suggestions. One of the biggest focuses on this Beta Season of Factions is optimization and performance. We know one of the biggest struggles with our Skyblock is random spikes in TPS loss. This will be a test run of a lot of the new core features that will be implemented into our next season of Skyblock.
When we started the development of our beta build of Factions, we focused on the root causes of the core features on the network, with this beta will be testing out our new anticheat, stacked spawners (and other performance fixes), and improving the overall format of the server. Some of these few of these core features include…
These blocks are blocks that have more durability towards explosions than obsidian. We have configured that Obsidian will take 8 hits of TNT to break. With these tiered buffer blocks they will increase the amount of tnt that is required to break. The will be uncraftable and only obtainable from crates & envoys.
Koths (King of the Hill)
This is an automated event that runs on the server that will broadcast the location the event in chat. These locations are just places in the world that players can run to to participate in the event. If you cap the point you will be rewarded with in game items or in game money.
These are like Koth’s expect instead of getting ingame items & money if you cap this point you will be given a 1.5x McMMO and 1.5x Sell boost in the Shop. This will also be a point on the map that players would have to run to get participate.
These are Custom mobs that spawn on throughout the map. That groups of players can fight and get experience, custom armor and weapons, and money in game. These monsters will be a lot harder than more mobs that will come across in the game.
These are purchasable upgrades to give your factions in game perks. Some include Fast spawn rates from spawners, a larger virtual TNT bank, more factions warps and many more. These are purchasable with in-game money.
...and so many more.
Faction Top Rewards
Since this is the Beta season of Factions the Factions top payout will not be as big as the Season 1 of Skyblock’s payout. You can climb factions top by factions members balances and spawners. The Factions Top rewards are as followed.
FTop #1: $150 Paypal OR $200 Buycraft
FTop #2 $75 PayPal OR $100 Buycraft
FTop #3: $50 PayPal OR $75 Buycraft
That being said, Factions will be releasing 11/16/2019 at 1PM EST, and the Beta Season will run until 2/8/2020.

As most of you already know, the server has been open for the Beta Season for a little while now.
First of all, our management team would like to thank everybody that is participating in the beta by helping us eliminate all bugs and issues. We could not have done any of this without the help of our players. So thank you all so much for your help!
On HyGate we offer 2 different engagement ranks; Media(2500+ subs) and YouTuber(500+ subs)
Applications and what each of these ranks receive will be linked here
The Beta Season
The beta season will end on September 23rd, and then we will calculate the top islands. (Rewards will be listed below)
Following the end of the Beta Season, we will be down for a short period of time as we prepare for the official launch of Season 1.
We have noticed a number of issues, such as player shards rolling back on restarts. Over the course of the next week, we will be implementing a new system to handle both shards, and the shard shop. We have also noticed that chunk loaders were not working and we properly found a solution so that they will be implemented into Season 1. Please post any bugs in our Discord so they can be taken care of immediately. Along with chunk loaders, Minions have been successfully re-implemented to reduce the issues that were arising. We have taken all of your suggestions and tried to direct the development of the server to suit the community needs while still keeping HyGate Skyblock extremely competitive. Thank you for all your input and we hope you enjoy what we have to offer.
Season 1 will start on 9.28.2019, and it will end on 12.14.19.
We have some changes, including the Island Top Rewards. All purchases in the network store during the beta season will be rolled over into season 1, please note this will not include any of the shards that have been grinded through mobs. The commands that were awarded through the shard shop will be permanent perks and fly is being removed from the shop. We have also a few more events, besides just the hay bale world that are being added to Skyblock like a bi-weekly community event that works in how well you like the builds on each others islands. The island team with the most votes at the end of every month starting on the first 2 weeks after the server releases so make sure to start voting(you vote by being on the teams island and typing /island vote (player) and votes will be reset the night after the votes are tallied) will win the rewards, that are listed below. The rewards will be increased based off of the feedback we have gotten from the community(whether you like it or not) and or be removed from the network all together. Because of this event we will be removing the ability for printer to be enabled, this being said anyone caught using it will be disqualified for the season from the event. We will also be running an island bank top reward(same rewards as island voting top) to see how the community responds as well. This will be ran every month so the rewards will be alternated every 2 weeks with the voting top. To deposit and withdraw money from the island bank you run the command /island bank deposit/withdraw (amount). All tops (voting, bank and normal island top) can be seen by running the command /island top.
Welcome to our Website!
What is this? Where am I?
You have landed on the website for HyGate, a Minecraft & Hytale network.
We are now in an open beta, and updates can be found here and on our Discord.
Minecraft and Hytale? What kind of servers will you have?
As for Minecraft, we will be initially launching with what the community enjoys the most.
We are starting off with Skyblock, Factions, Creative, and a custom gamemode, Obelisk (More details will be available later)
What is Hytale?
Hytale combines the scope of a sandbox with the depth of a roleplaying game, immersing players in a procedurally generated world where teetering towers and deep dungeons promise rich rewards. Designed with creative players in mind, Hytale’s engine supports everything from block-by-block castle construction to scripting and customization delivered using easy to use and powerful tools.
