Despite having lost the title of most popular server to Hypixel in recent times, Mineplex is still one of the biggest Minecraft servers thanks to a loyal core fanbase.

Having gained much of its popularity due to consistent innovation of new and fun game modes, Mineplex will never be replaceable in the eyes of many fans.

Last but not least is Hypixel, a massively popular server that definitely needs no introduction to the majority of Minecrafters.

Hypixel is sometimes considered the "enemy" of Mineplex, as both have battled in the past for the spot of most popular Minecraft server. In the eyes of many, however, Hypixel has now won the race and is too far ahead for Mineplex to ever catch up.

Blasting past 100,000 players during peak hours, the servers' unparalleled success cannot be considered a fluke. Hypixel has steadily grown to its giant size over the years, with constant innovation and improvements throughout over 40 unique minigames.
