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 can rate other players's plots. There is also a 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 rated build wins.
To join Build Battle, you may join the Arcade Games Lobby and join from there, or you may join by right-clicking the game compass.
You can use ALL blocks that are in 1.8.9; blocks added in versions 1.9+ cannot be used.

- Dark Red - Super Poop
- Red - Poop
- Green - Okay
- Darker Green - Good
- Purple - Epic
- Yellow - Legendary

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