Hello everyone! All the staff here at Mineplex has been very busy since the last update, and we've got another big one ready for you!
We've recently been working hard behind the scenes to create a map development plugin for Mineplex. This plugin allows our map team to quickly build maps, parse them into the game plugin, then test them!
Now that it's finished, we've got a whole bunch of new exciting maps for you guys to enjoy!

Stats & Achievements:
We are releasing the first wave of achievements and stats. At the moment, we are just recording basic stats (kills/deaths/wins/losses) for all the games, as well as specific things for achievements. You will be able to view your stats and achievements any time by types /stats, or by clicking the Stats item in the Mineplex Hub. You can also type /stats <name> to view stats for another online player.
Each game has a number of Achievements. If you have completed all the achievements for a game type, you will be able to use a special new kit for that game, which is only available to people who have done the achievements! Also, when you complete an achievement, you will receive some Gems! We haven't added the special kits yet - so please be patient on this!
A bunch of new cosmetic items are now available in the inventory! Now you can disguise as a block, bounce around on a slime or simply smash watermelons into your friends face! You can purchase Coins to unlock them at the store, or simply subscribe to Ultra to get Coins automatically every month!
New Arcade Game: Micro Battle BETA
This is a very simple, but very fun game that our staff have been enjoying a lot! In this game, there are four teams who spawn VERY CLOSE to each other, only kept apart by a glass barrier. Sounds pretty safe right? Think again! After 10 seconds, the barrier disappears and all hell breaks loose! The last team alive wins. Also, did i mention the map slowly falls apart?!
Think of it like a very simple, faced paced game of bridges! It has quickly become a favorite among our staff! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Tournamnet: Fall Invitational
We are excited to announce the Fall Invitational! The Fall Invitational is a tournament within Mineplex where players will compete to win spectacular prizes! This Invitational is only open to Ultras and Heroes, however, there will be future tournaments available to everyone.
How To Play
There are two ways to earn one of the 32 invitations to the tournament!
First, we will have 2 qualifier weekends. September 6-7th and 13-14th. During those weekends, there will be special servers with three different game modes: Survival Games, Super Smash Mobs, and Mixed Arcade. Your stats will be tracked on these servers and we will have leaderboards here on Mineplex.com. The 10 players with the best win percentages in each game mode will receive an invite!
You must play at least 20 games to be included on the leaderboards.
Teaming is not allowed, and players who are caught teaming will be disqualified.
2 other invitations will be given out on the Mineplex Stream on the Tuesdays before the two Qualifier Weekends. These will be give to non-Ultra/Hero members, so make sure you tune in and are following the official Mineplex stream for your chance to win!
Hello everyone! We've been listening to all of your feedback regarding the last update, and we have decided that we need to make some pretty big changes. Some of these changes are already active on the server, and we are working hard to implementing the others.
Game Servers: No more Free and Premium
We put a lot of work into splitting the servers, but it has become evident that it's just not working as well as we hoped it would. Ultra and Hero players are the ones who keep Mineplex running, and this server split was making it hard for these people to enjoy the game!
After a lot of discussion, we are switching back to a single group of servers which everyone can play together! This ensures that the people who support Mineplex always get the best experience available!
Kits: No more Ultra Kits
Yep, you read it correctly! All kits are now unlockable with Gems (except for achievement kits). This ensures that no one on the server has an unfair advantage, by having a kit that someone else cannot earn. Read more about achievements below.
Rank Changes: Ultra and Hero
Ultras and Heros, don't worry! Everyone who has purchased a rank in the past will have all current kits, in every game, automatically unlocked for them, forever!
The new benefits for ranks are listed below;
- Ultra Tag
- Apply for Staff
- $7.50 worth of Coins per Month for free (Subscribers only)
- 1 Gem Booster per Day for free
- Access to Premium Games (new games will be premium for 1-2 months)

- $15 worth of Coins per Month for free(Subscribers only)
- 3 Gem Boosters per Day for free

- Creeper Morph (Exclusive to Hero)
As a special thank you to everyone who has supported Mineplex up to this date, we are giving all Ultras and Heroes a special one time present! Some of these are already applied to your account, and some will be applied in the near future when we finish coding it!

Player Stats: Achievements and Perks
Many of you have been asking for this, and it's coming really soon! You statistics will be recording for all games, letting you see your kills, deaths, wins, losses and much more!
On top of this, we are also adding achievements for you to unlock special benefits! Like what? Well, every game is going to have a special achievement that is unlocked by playing that game, which will unlock a brand new kit for that game, which is only unlockable by getting the achievement!
Another achievement is Gem Hunter. You level this up by collecting gems from games. Every level you have in this gives you an extra 25% Gems at the end of each game! As a special thank you to our current Ultras and Heroes, they automatically get level 4 and level 8 in this achievement!
Cosmetic Currency: Coins
We have a brand new currency devoted to purchasing cosmetic items. If you have Ultra or Hero, you will be given a big pile of Coins for free soon! As well as this, current subscribers will receive Coins for free every month! Make sure you buy all the pretty things!
Inventory: Gadgets, Loot, Trading, Treasure Chests and more!
We are putting a lot of work into making our inventory system much better, and adding tons of brand new amazing cosmetic content for you to enjoy and show off! As well as that, we are adding new ways for you to get items!
When games finish, there is a chance for all players to receive some awesome items to use in the hub. One of these items you can find are Treasure Chests! Chests are an exciting new way to get items. You simply unlock them with some Coins to find what shiny sparkling loot lies inside! You may even get an extremely valuable Particle Effect!
Particle Effects are a brand new category of gadget, and they are extremely rare and valuable! They play an amazing effect around you while you stand still, leave a trail when you run, and have some funkyness when you double jump! But theres something special about particles... they are the only item which can be used in games!
Gem Boosters can be used before a game starts to boost the amount of gems that everyone in the server earns! Only four gem boosters can be used per game. The first boosts by 100%, the second by 75%, the third by 50% and the fourth by 25%. This gives a maximum boost of 250% extra Gems.
Now you can use all of your favorite mounts, gadgets, particles and more inside the game lobbies! Once the game starts, all of your items will be disabled, except for particles.
In the future, we will be adding trading, allowing players to swap items with other players. Remember, one mans trash is another mans treasure!
Survival: Ultra Hardcore Coming Soon...
Don't worry, it's still coming soon! We've just been extremely busy doing this huge update in a very short time.
Arcade Game: Sneaky Assassins Beta Test Released
In this brand new game for the Arcade, 16 players must blend into a large crowd of NPCs and try to kill each other. The only catch is that you can't tell players and NPCs apart. Use your keen senses to catch suspicious movement and kill the enemy assassins. Powerups will periodically spawn around the map, which upgrade your sword and armor, giving an edge to whoever manages to collect it. Collect 5 powerups to become a Master Assassin, who is able to track down other players with a compass!
Champions: Team Deathmatch Released
TDM is coming out of Beta, and will be playable by everyone! In this game two teams of 5 must battle to the death but there are no respawns! Be sure to check it out in the Champions section!
Hub: Parkour Update
We've completely coded the back-end of the parkour to eliminate the ability to cheat. To finish a parkour, you must first right click the NPC at the start. When you do this, everything is disabled for you, ensuring you cannot cheat! We've also increased the gem reward!
