Hey all, and welcome to the Skyblock Creeper and Pig merge post!
The next season of the Skyblock Creeper realm will be released this Saturday 11th December @ 1:00 PM EST / 4:00 AM AEST / 6:00 PM GMT.
Today, we are announcing that the Skyblock Pig realm will be merged into the Creeper realm this weekend. This means that from this time onwards, Skyblock Pig will be closed down, and all reclaims, kits and permissions will be moved from Pig to Creeper. The ranks you had on Pig will go into /redeem.
You will still be able to join Skyblock Pig until Friday so you can say your goodbyes to the realm that has been at the heart of HoaxMC since the beginning of the server. We want to thank everyone who has enjoyed playing on the Pig realm during this time, and hope that you will love the Creeper realm just as much during this necessary transition.
To reiterate, you will not lose your reclaims from last season, your ranks, kits and additional permissions from Pig, all of these are being transferred over to Creeper where you will be able to use them there. As for members of the Creeper realm, we are treating this weekend like a normal Creeper reset, but we hope that you will give your new neighbours a very warm welcome!
Resets include a fresh wipe of the entire map, which means your island, robots, chests, private vaults, McMMO, and all materials you own in-game will be gone.
However, your ranks, kits, Gkits, tags, disguises, or anything that has been promised to you as a permanent purchase will stay with you through to the next map. This also includes Black Market items that you purchased last season.
The new map will bring a new awesome spawn for Creeper! Check out a sneak peek below:
Along with the new spawn, we have spent some time reworking and re-balancing the Creeper economy. The new economy document can be found here:
Island Top Payouts
Winners for the payouts will be rewarded at the end of the season. The Payout prizes are:
1st: $100 PayPal
2nd: $25 PayPal, $25 Buycraft
3rd: $40 Buycraft
4th: $30 Buycraft
5th: $20 Buycraft
Free For All
A rotating cycle of maps has been added for FFAs, meaning that every time there is a FFA event, there will be a different map to the one before. This keeps it more exciting for players who take part in this event, as you won't have the same map over and over again.
As well as this, there will be a rotating cycle of kits that are used in the FFA events, which also spices up the event! Some examples of kits are:
- Diamond OCN
- Build UHC
- and more!
Pets no longer despawn, and instead will have an energy level. This means that pets must be fed using the new Pet Food if you want them to continue giving boosts. If a pet runs out of energy, you can still spawn it however no boosts will be received. Pet food can be purchased from the /pet menu.
As well as this, we're introducing a new way to level pets! If you feed your pet a tasty Pet Treat, then a large amount of Pet EXP will be rewarded. These new Pet Treats can be obtained via crate keys, the HoaxPass /pass, MobShop and the new Arcade Games.
We have also had to say goodbye to some of the beloved pets that just weren't being used as they didn't give effective bonuses, and replaced them with some awesome new and improved ones!
If you have purchased any of the pets that were removed then you can make a ticket in the Discord to get a new or different one.

The Casino has been completely revamped and renamed, turning it into a super fun, competitive, multiplayer minigames hub! Team up with your friends or go up against opponents in the new minigames to receive rewards.
There are 6 new minigames, take a look at what you can expect from 3 of them below. To find out what the other minigames are, you'll need to see them in-game for yourself when the new season begins!
- Horse Racing
Place your money on which horse you think will win the race! In this awesome new game, you can actually see the horses riding down the track in real time, all racing each other to the finish line.
As an added bonus, the player who has received the most money from Horse Racing at the end of the season, will get their very own horse named after them in the game the following season! You will be able to place money and race this special horse like any of the normal horses.
- Mob Battles
Ever wondered what would happen if a Silverfish fought a Wither? Here's your chance to find out in the new minigame Mob Battles! In each round, 2 new mobs will spawn, ready to fight. Players will be able to place money on which fighter they think will win the epic battle. The winner is a 50/50 chance, so it doesn't matter how big or small the mob is, anyone can win!
- Bow Boost Battles
Show off your Bow-boosting skills and race solo against an opponent, or boost along with a friend in the duo mode in the new Bow Boost Battles game!
There have been a number of small changes made to Machines. We've decided to remove a few recipes, as well as the Planting Machines. Take a look at what has been removed below:
- Glistering melon
- Fermented Spider Eye
- Slime Block
- Blaze Powder
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Melon Seeds
- Nether Wart
