What are the most popular game modes on the Hypixel server?
The most popular game modes currently on Hypixel are Bed Wars, Skyblock, Skywars, and Duels.
However, Skyblock is by far the most dominant game mode on the network in terms of popularity. It has been known to clock in with over 100,000 players at peak times. For context, this means that if the Hypixel Skyblock game mode was its own individual server, it would still be the most popular Minecraft server in history.
