Build Battle is one of Hypixel's Arcade Games. It's a competitive creative game, and Hypixel's first creative-based minigame. The game is based on a 27x27 size plot of land, where you are given 5 minutes to build something based on the theme you are given. After the 5 minutes is up, you are given several rating blocks which you can use to judge how well the other players built their plot based on the theme. There is also a Build Battle team mode, where you and another player work together to create a good build; the theme is usually harder, but you get 7 minutes to complete it instead of the usual 5. The player with the highest points scored based on other player's ratings wins. To join Build Battle, you may join the Arcade Games Lobby and join from there, or you may join by right-clicking the crafting and done.
You use the normal Minecraft-blocks. You can use ALL blocks (in 1.8.9) The new Minecraft blocks are not made to build with in Build Battle.
During the Phase, you are given a 27x27 size plot of land and creative mode. However, you are also given some extra tools to make the Build Phase a lot easier, and creative. You should notice that you have a Nether Star in the bottom right hand of your hotbar at all times, by right clicking that you can access the Plot Options. The Plot Options contains 10 features (from top to bottom, left to right): Plot Weather, Plot Time, Plot Biome, Plot Floor, Custom Skulls, Custom Particles, Banner Builder, Save Loadout, Jukebox, and the Language Selector.

There are 7 different categories of custom heads you can choose from: Colors, Animals, Blocks, Foods, Interior, Miscellaneous and Mobs.

When many people have voted legendary on a build, diamonds will rain from the sky all over the build.
